So I narrowed my bikes down to the following two. I haven't taken a test ride yet because I didn't have any ID with me at the time and the bike shop said it was a management policy to provide a drivers license and credit card before I take the bike out.
Anyways, I sat on both bikes in the store and just did a quick tour. Both felt really good.
So which one of the bikes would you say has a better reputation. The Norco is selling for $500 and the Marin is selling for $650. These are in Canadian dollars.
