    I would strongly advise against getting a bike at Canadian Tire, especially a full-suspension for 'freeriding'.

    Don't be tempted by the looks, the components are not good at all and they are often assembled poorly.

    I don't say this because I'm a bike snob, it is because these bikes will quickly fall apart if you do 'abuse' them (they consider riding them off-road 'abuse' BTW) and you would simply not be safe on them!

    A used hardtail would be a lot better for that kind of money.

    EDIT:

    Oh, and 'Mercalli' is just a knock-off of Marzocchi. Again, don't be decieved by the looks. It is the internals that matter.

    The shox on your bike are okay for you but wouldn't reccomend it for freestyle but they will do for a cheap bike !

    mxwolf, lets just say they are equal. But you have to admit the frame on the xt1 is better looking. But looks can be decieving.

    Aren't Supercycles those crummy, 5-ton, scrap iron MTB lookalike bikes they sell at Canadian Tire?

    Watch out for the cheaper shox, they sometimes bend abit when you abuse them. you'd probably have to find someone who used mercalli's for a while to tell you how they hold up. If that is somethign you are worried about.

    no " FreeRider " ( if thats what you call yourself beacuase a true freerider wo't be riding a xt1-18ds) the 2100gsd is by far a better bike than the xt1-16 or 15 ds !!

    Without looking at the supercycle bikes AT ALL....I will say they are pieces of ****, and dont buy them because you wont be able to ride it to your mailbox without it breaking.

    Well they arent bad bikes. Like they arent the best and dont compare to norco. They have some nice shocks back and front and they dont break too often. I have 1 it wuz about $230 its sturdy, the frame is nice and the shocks are ok. It isnt a bad bad bike. Bike like u guys say, it isnt the best...

    Tell Klein to pound sand! If you're out riding and having fun, who cares what kind of bike it is!

    My first bike was junk compared to the one I'm riding now, but you know what? I had just as much fun, if not more, on it as my current ride.

    Yes, thats true in alot of cases....but in some, its not true. And urbanking.....well, nevermind. Freerider, sure get the bike if u want, if your going to be doing some hardcore stuff....then u might want to think about saving up some more money and getting a better bike. And A2, the pound sand really hurt my feelings....really really
