    What can my bike take?

    Alright so I have a Norco fluid 1, fox float in the back and front and it has carbon fiber bars, but other than that it is pretty slongly built. I am just wonder what kind of riding it can take, is there a chance I could snap the bars? blow out the fork? i am wanting to ride on this until i get a better FS bike but I don't know what it can handle. i have just been riding XC on it for now and some small DH courses with nothing big.

    Fluid 101

    from Norco's site: "Intended for Backcountry / Cross Country and All Mountain riding"

    DH and repeated small hits = friction that will blow your shock seals.

    you will crush the float eventually. I would post a pic of a recently crushed one of ours, but I haven't got one here

    They really don't hold up well under any abuse

    You don't have a Fluid 1... Or a v10... You have a p2 that you don't ride. And with you defunct back I doubt you're going to be riding hard... if at all.

    Seriously, this is what you come up with next? A Fluid?

    Anywho, with your mad skillz, it will handle at least 12ft to flat or 65ft road gaps with a good tranny

    Will you finally stick to one lie? And stop inventing new ones?

    Dude, I've seen WAY too much ******** from you to even believe that you own more than one bike.

    They better exist after all the time he's wasted with the multiple threads on each topic: gyros, super strong axles, tubes, etc.

    I'd like to see him post a pic of any bike, but hold a sign that says DJSKEET the photo as well
    who can use the excuse that they don't have a digital? They give them away these days...

    Dude, I just won a camera last week And I've never heard him claim that he doesn't have a camera. He just stops replying to a thread when someone asks for pictures of his bikes.

    Still waiting for pics of DJskeet's bikes...

    Wow, I need to start visiting these forums more often during the season, looks like I always miss the fun.

    lets awnserhis question and he will stop posting
    Djskeet isnt it kindof obvious that cross country components will not stand up to freeride
    why the hell would you want it to anyway
    you want to do CROSSCOUNTRY so why would you want to do drops and stuff with it?
    Isnt that what your RIDEABLE K2 and P2 is for
    Hucks to Fackie
