Norco Sasquatch vs Rampage Help!!

im in the market for a nice FR bike. origionaly i was looking at a sasquatch. when i called my LBS they said it was 1350 CDN. after looking at the reviews and specs it looks like a nice bik for the money. When i was looking on the norco site i saw the Rampage. for 550 more is it worth the upgrade? I have an nice XC bike so i dont need to worry about trails and weight. ide like to buy somthing god and keep it a while but is it worth the upgrade?

Its a signifigant upgrade. The components like fork and brakes jump up in quality big time. It would be well worth the 550...

I would go with the rampage. Overall the components are a lot like the sasquatch, but the brakes and the fork as Mael said justify the extra money. If you were ever thinking about putting a dual crown fork on in the future, you mind as well get the rampage for the jr t 2.
