    Giant Reign X1 vs. Ironhorse Sachem 6.0 vs. Norco Six Three

    Out of the GRX, IH Sachem 6 and the Norco 6 3, which is a good bike for the occasional XC and some small jumps and drops (1-2m). I still want to be able to climb relatively well but more jumps and drops.

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks

    So true. Your also comparing 3 different suspension designs (Maestro v.s. SP v.s. FSR) which would have different Pro's & Cons.

    IMO for what you said, ie climb relatively well, hit 1-2m drops, do more jumps and drops then do XC my order of preference would be:

    Norco six 3 or reign X1
    (which one is better? ride em both its a tough call, both are pretty sweet, then its a question fox van-r 36 vs marz 55R etc)

    ...
    way down
    the IH thing you said.
