What type of riding. It is a tough bike with good components for cheap. It was the only alternative for my current bike (2002 Roast). It is a good dirtjumper / freeride bike. Because of its geometry doing wheelies and wheelie drops is a breeze. The frame is excellent.

If you intend to do any xc have fun. It is a heavy bike and when you nail a super steep section you will tip backwards.

Otherwsie great bike

Man you still havent decided on a bike yet? Youve asked about every norco, specialized and rocky so far If your doing 10 foot drops with that bike then you better be smooth....but I think the bike and fork could handle them. If you have enough extra a new fork would be great.

I dont know anything about it, but you have been doing research on these forums about this type of bike for the last 6 months. I say go ahead and get the bike before its to late to ride any more this year!
