Well I had a northrock for about two year. Didn't ride it much. And when I did it was all paved roads.
I never a problem with it but sold it a few months ago. Weather got nice and about a month ago ordered a jamis dragon 650 sport.
Right from the start you can feel the weight difference! The jamis is a lot lighter even with the seat bag/ and onguard lock
I'm about 5'8 or so and went with a 17" frame. Feels pretty good but still needs some adjustments. I feel like my arms are in a good position but my legs/butt seems kind of off somehow. I'm no experts so I'll leave it alone for now.
I went to a local hiking trail near my house, Beaudry loop. This was my first time and it was great for the first 50 or so yards. Then it was all steep uphill. Pretty much walked the bike up and only went about 1/4 of the way.
The ride down was pretty fun,fast and scary at the same time. The back end kept sliding out during breaking and turns so I had to take it slow. This was my first time ever on anything except pavement.
Anyways , just wanted to say hi and show the bike for those beginners looking for a new bike.
