Norco, cheaper, and you don't need a heavy duty bike, like shocks that take a beating cause at 120, that is almost too light.

Shore?

What's a Shore bike?
Up here in Canada, shore refers to the North Shore,Vancouver where freeriding was practically invented. It has numerous trails descending through old growth forest with many natural and man made stunts.Many of the top names in freeriding honed their skills on the shore. Also the testing grounds of Norco and Brodie bikes. FSR

thanks for your input! the bike i am looking at from specialized is a rockhopper pro
For the shore a Norco hardtail is going to be much better because it has slacker head angles. Norco was the first manufacturer to use slack head angles (except for some DH race bikes). The slacker head angle is much better in the steeps.

THANKS! I was also looking into a p.2, but i was debating if i would need more than 8 gears for shore. And plus the fork has very little travel, should this bike be considered?
