    Intended use would be freeeide some decent trails woodland and rocky, both easy and some semi rough terrain, some drops every once and a while but nothing extreme...
    -2007 Norco shore 3
    -2007 Norco fluid 1
    -2009 Merida Freddy 1
    -2008-2009 Trek ex 8

    I have no ride time on anything you listed except the trek but this is my opinion on looking at pictures of the bikes on google.

    -2007 Norco shore 3 - Doesn't look like it would be fun to pedal...looks solid for some free ride though. Looks more free ride than "trail"
    -2007 Norco fluid 1 - Looks like a solid trail bike that can handle some smaller/smooth free riding.
    -2009 Merida Freddy 1 - Looks solid, looks more free ride bike...doubt I'd want to pedal it all day on a trail.
    -2008-2009 Trek ex 8 - Solid bike, more along the lines of the Norco Fluid.

    I would probably pick the trek or Fluid for the type of riding I do based on quality and condition of the components. If they don't fit right don't even consider it.

    The Fuel. ABP is great, DRCV ain't bad and the newer, the better.
