    The Norco Bushpilot

    I have been looking and this is a nice bike that fits my budget perfectly,

    I ride mostly street/trails and i go off jumps once in a while. The max jump/drop would be like 4 feet. Can this bike handle that?

    It's a excelent start for a bike, great frame with budget components to keep the price low. Just remember as you become more agressive you will be upgrading as you exceed the components/fork limits. Plus it's from the home land, Go For It

    for $555 you could do much better.

    Although I am a fan of Norco hardtails, that particular bike looks severely overpriced. For that price range you could get a Rockhopper. Which would be a better bike and give you a the type of performance you need out of a bike.

    Rockhopper Hardrock disc would be another option, although not my favorit.

    Diamondback Response Comp (very well equipped bike)

    and

    Raleigh Mojave 8.0 (similarly equipped as the response comp, but with a lighter frame)

    these bikes would be (in my opinion) some valid options to consider. if you are interested.

    good luck.

    That Norco is priced in canadian dollars you know, right? Becuase the other ones you suggested that were in equal price ranges were 100-200 dollars more.
