Hey everybody. I looking to upgrade from my old 12 in Norco Katmandu and i have looked at a few different bikes. The norco wolverine, kona shred, specialized hardrock comp disc or a used haro escape 8.2(2005)(possibly even an 07 escape. I havent had a chance to ride these bikes yet, so before i give them a test i would like to know your opinion. I would like to keep the price below $800 canadian. I am open to your sugestions aswell. Thanks in advance!
