1. The most important thing about buying a new bike is to make sure it fits. The only way you'll know if the bike is right for you is to size up the bike and make sure that the bike's geometry matches your body's geometry. Ask questions and do some research.

2. If possible, try to find a shop that will let you demo the bike on real dirt. Five minutes in a parking lot won't cut it. You wouldn't buy a car without a real world test drive, and a bike should be no different.
3. Don't belive the hype. Just because your favorite rider or best friend rides a certain bike, that doesn't mean that's the best one for you. Have an open mind and be realistic about your needs and ability.

    First of all, greetings from Croatia to everyone on this forum

    Im buying my first decent bike next week, and i gave decided to get one of these Norco's. Only these two are in the game. Im in a search for a XC bike, for riding on the road, and on rough terrain. Im even willing to try a DH, well a light DH. Searching for all around bike, or all mountain

    ok, here are competitors:


    1. Norco wolverine - http://www.norco.com/bikes/mountain/.../wolverine.php

    2. Norco Storm 2007 - http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/B...torm&Type=bike

    So, witch one?

    And, can somebody please compare, RockShocks Tora on the Storm and MZ Comp 120mm on the Wolv? Witch one is better?

    Thank you all

    I don't know anything about those two bikes, but I wanted to say good job so far in the Euro!
    I would say the Storm looks better-equipped and more suited for XC riding. The Worverine seems to have a bashguard in place of the big ring, which would limit you on surfaces where you can roll.
