    Strengths:    Need some advise. See summary. Thank you.

    Weaknesses:    Don't know yet.

    Bottom Line:   
    Can someone advise me. I can get this bike for $200 but need it as a mountain bike. Can it be used solely for that and can the seat be raised. I'm 6'3" tall would this 22.5" frame work? "Green 2013 Norco ryde with RST Dirt 100mm forks,Alienation PBR 36H Rims, Kenda K-Rad 2.25" wide tires. Both brakes are Tektro Novela 160mm Mechanical Disc Brakes"

    Strengths:    Great frame, looks really good, feels like a bmx bike. But most importantly, it's high flyer!

    Weaknesses:    Crapy parts (except frame) it has to many spacers its rear hub is impossible to remove, rims bend WAY to easily. Seat breaks really fast, and I find it to big for smaller skate parks.

    Bottom Line:   
    Buy the bike!! It's a great beginners dirt jumper. However, as you hit bigger and bigger jumps, buy new rims, shocks, tire, and front hub. I love this. Bike, BUY IT!!!!!!!

    Strengths:    Rides smooth, great brakes.

    Weaknesses:    The rims are horrible, ive had to get my back rim trewed 3 times. I need to buy a new rim this year. I'd rather it come in single speed.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a great bike, however to make it better Norco should make it single speed, and get some better rims on the thing. Its not even possible to do flat 180's on! Otherwise, i love the bike, it fits my urban street riding with my dirt jumps needs all in one.

    Strengths:    Frame seems very solid. Parts are good for the price.

    Weaknesses:    A little heavy but doesnt feel like it while riding. MZ comps not too sure about. Have heard some bad things about them but so far they are still in one piece.

    Bottom Line:   
    Awesome bike for the money. It jumps great seeing as it is my first 26" coming from 20" and I love the way it handles and jumps. Nice and solid. Reminds me of a big 20" so thumbs up from me.

    Right now I've got Stroker Rydes with 185/160mm rotors. I've also got a set of Juicy 5s sitting around. They have a older 160mm rotor in back and a new G3 185mm for the front.
