Good day.

New to this forum. I'm picking up a Norco Storm (2011 model) next week. I have'nt been on a bike in over 10 years(I'm 35). So figured this is a good entry level bike for me. I keep in great shape going to the gym 4-5 days out of the week but really want to get back into the bikeing scene. It will be mostly minor dirt trails, roads, etc for me at least until I get my bike legs back.
I'm sure there are a lot of pros on here with years of experience. Just looking to get a fresh opinion on this bike.
Thanks for the education. :thumbsup:

I've got an 2005 Storm hanging in my garage that was my daughters, who has since outgrown it.
From my recollection, it is a somewhat heavy-ish, more x/c hardtail with entry level parts & nothing wrong with any of that.
I would say depending on your ultimate intended use, your choice is reasonable.
My first new bike was the Norco Charger, which I think is a model or two above the Storm (or was) and I beat the bleep out of that thing. Eventually, I did crack the frame but it did it's job.

Good stuff. I should note that I'm 6'1 240lbs(muscle, not fat). I did take it for a test run. Just wondering if it'll hold up. Seems sturdy enough.

it'll be fine. it's an entry-level hardtail which is exactly what you need to start.
