I would have to say go with a Rocky Mountain. Awsome rides. You could get Norco but they dont build their own frames.

I got an Oryx, and it has a 5 year warranty on the frame but Oryx is no longer making high end bikes [ i think ] but all i know is if it broke i would get a Rocky, or Rocky will build one to replace it.

Cheers

Heh - if you get a rear flat, that derailleur is gone.
