    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    My first mtb was a Norco Wolverine. It was a cheap entry level bike, but just enough for the addiction. Here's a picture of it with stock components just before i sold it...

    its actually a dirt jumping bike from the look of it. only a rear brake, it looks to have a marz dj fork, and a single speed.

    ok, 416 was my first guess, but for some reason i thought 125. and its in the dirt/street category, so it will do DJ's too

    Yeah but it feels really akward for DJ's, that's why I was thinking of buying the new Bass (kona)
