    It's a cheaper starter, designed for it, but the parts pick on the bike doesn't speak long life to me.

    KHS is a 'blue-collar' brand, not a lot of glamour, but rugged. I've looked at their bikes before, but always went with one that suited me better.

    It's a good bike to get started with. The geometry is a tad dated, but the frame is good and is worthy of upgrades further down the road.

    Sounds like you're ready to get serious with this; the Norco is a heavy hitter! Being a Canadian brand, Norco isn't as well known in the US, but they have the quality -- I'd rank them right up with Santa Cruz!
