Ok now my choice is final...

Now it's only either:

-Devinci Hucker 2004
OR
-Norco Rampage 2004

***Please note the FORK on BOTH OF THE BIKES will be a Dirt Jumper I when I buy them, I am upgrading whichever bike I get to the DJ1***

So think of both bikes as if they have a Dirt Jumper 1 on them.

And tell me which one you think I should get!

Going to buy it in a week..

Thanks

There is no point in upgrading to a Dirtjumper 1.....but go for it. Both bikes have similar spec and I am not on either companies side. I would probably say norco just because their name is respected more....I guess.

Klein just sent you a PM

Anyway, why no point to upgrade? I want the external rebound adjustment.

Devinci's Hucker frame looks better then Norco's hardtail frames, well, maybe I'm better off with Norco after all.

If you have enough money and whatever and want it then just do it, but if your getting it because you think you need it, I had the same fork and rode it and was fine without any adjustments. Plus the DJ2 has internal rebound. I never really play with a rebound setting after its set at a good rate.

So DJ2 is enough?

I will see, depends how much I'll need to add to the total price for the upgrade.

OR, I can just buy the bike with the DJ2, sell the DJ2 to someone privatly, and buy a 2003 DJ1 for 270 from outlet (and I will probably sell the DJ2 for like 100$ more).
