    Nice frame mate,i had one,but not for long ,dident give it enough testing to tell you how good it is but i got enough ride time on it to feel it was very plush and stiff .

    Part's wise,i would get 2nd hand and try and find stuff in the Sale's next month,If you want some sick brake's for half the price of hope/avid's etc that work as good,try the Clarks Clim8 6 piston,amazing brake's, http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=248075

    What's your budget? You're looking at $1200us bare minimum. If you can't afford that, sell the frame and buy a hardtail - steelhead is probably your best bet if you wanna ride DH on the way cheap

    If you build it up right, you'll like the bike. I've had 2 Norco Six bikes. The older and newer model. My buddy has an A-Line. It's a pretty short cockpit, and if you're not used to it, it can feel a bit dodgy at speed.But the bike is stiff and handles real well.

    If you want to make the P3 a pure DJ bike you could set that up a SS and yank the cassete, rear der. and shifter off (please correct me if I'm wrong, I don;t know much about SS's) and put it on the new bike. You could also yank the front brake for the new bike. Other than that I would say look for used and also at pricepoint.com
