    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??
