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...

There seems to be a rash of questions and threads regarding Norco bikes this month.

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.

street bikes and dirt bikes are reatively similarl they tend to be ss, small, short travel (yours is probably 100mm)
my P.2 is a street bike, dj, freeride, geared, ss, etc.

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)
