If it is a size small, dont get it because the seat tube hits the linkage piece hard every time it bottoms out. They dont have a big tire clearence (unless 24" rear wheel) and the rear swingarms are known to snap (but norco warrentees it, no questions asked). Only a few select rear shocks fit in it.
team dh.. please convince me
Get it for sure, that is a awesome bike and you will find places to use it, for all of you that think manitoba has no big hit riding, maybe talk to a few locals a spend a month over here, there is so much potential for stuff, we have no real skinnies or ladders but there is alot of dirt!
