So you want us to research up to 3 bikes with which we may not be familiar, tell you which we favor with no knowledge about what your needs or preferences are, and then answer in a simple yea/nay format with no explanation of pros and cons. And you expect that to be more helpful (or even additionally helpful) than you doing the research yourself, reading expert evaluations and rider reviews and talking to dealers who sell the items? Oh and by the way you want all of this when you are ready to buy today (7:47pm?).

Is that pretty accurate?

Hey sorry about my very brief post.

I wish to do some long distance xc/trail something strong enough to handle my bunny hops and little drops. forget the scott. Please check these links below for the two bikes. THis is the store i am going to buy the bike from

Kona Kula 09: http://www.bikes.com.au/p/579727/200...--750-off.html
Norco charger 2010 : http://www.bikes.com.au/p/1069033/20...--600-off.html

Only thing i dont like about the kona is im not sure about the m575 hyrdros... But its a Kona frame!!!
Norco its cheaper with the nice juicy 3 brakes BUT it has tora shocks whereas the kona has a recon . Should i save that 300?

You might find more feedback over in the Mountain Bike Forum rather than in the Bike Mechanics Forum......... Just a thought....

Apologies if I crossed a mod boundary.

My Opinion is you need to find a dealer for each of them and test ride the bike ,
and see which the dealer is going to give you the best service after the sale..
