It's about the right price for that bike. You could look at Iron horse bikes at sportchek. Iron horse tends to have a bit better components for bikes in the same price range and makes some really nice freeride hardtails. Sportcheck carries a range of iron horse bikes. Although I don't condone 'big box' sports stores for bikes, if you can get a good deal for the same bike as a 'real' bike shop, might as well take it.
Also, pinkbike.com has several decent used freeride hardtails in wpg. in their buy and sell in your price range. Several of them are Norco's.
Nice to see a fellow winterpeger on here. Not too many others that I've seen.
