The main differences will be the geometry and the fork travel. The Rockhopper can handle some jumping and drops but the Bigfoot would feel more comfortable while doing it. The geo specs on the Scrap and Bigfoot look similar...I think the main difference there would be fork travel (but I'm not sure what the Bigfoot has). I know the Sasquatch and Manik have 150ish (higher up the Norco line).

Have you ridden any of them? You should get an idea of what you can do on them based on your positioning on the bike. I'm no where near as comfortable doing some things on my Rockhopper as I am on my other longer travel, more slack bikes. But commuting is a lot more efficient on my Rockhopper than my other bikes.
