I'm looking into getting A Norco VPS B-Line or a Norco Manik. Im getting into more downhill riding and north shore style. The manik has a 170mm travel fork (which would help absorb the stuff that I run over ), but the b-line has a back shock rather than a hardtail like the Manik has. The prices are the same except the b-line is $9 more (big price difference huh?). I'm not good at making decisions so could someone help?
