Can you help me ? I'm new in this sport and don't really know what to buy I would spend about 900(canadian dollars) in a Hardtail bike.

I was thinking of a Kona Shred, Norco rival, this kind of bikes

Thank U

ur = you're
u = you

too many abbreviations. Please use complete words when posting on bikeforums.

I assume you are looking to dj or fr by your bike choice. If so, thats a fine bike to start on

Hi Chicane,

Where in QC you located? If you're in Montreal I would really recommend my LBS, Marseille Velo as they sell Konas. The guys there are top notch so hey can help out a lot. Other than that I am not a DJ/Freestyle rider so i have little experience with those types of bikes.

I'd reccomend a size 15" frame. I think both the Shred and the Rival would be good for you so it all comes down to personal preference. Testride them, which feels better?

I'm at Saguenay about 5 hours from Montreal loll

I will try to test ride the Kona Shred and the Rival at my LBS if they have but... I have to wait, too much snow around here..

is there other bikes that could be nice for the price I am spending??
