    Norco storm 9.1 vs Trek X-Caliber 4

    My bike finally kicked it, drivetrain is warped and isn't really worth it to replace. Seeing as I ride it on a daily basis, I need to replace the thing asap (before Wednesday hopefully)
    I unfortunately don't really know much about bikes, but I've fallen in love with the Norco Storm pretty much through my LBS's salesmanship.

    Alternatively, another LBS nearby recommended the Trek X-Caliber 4, both are around the same price range and I fully plan on testriding both tomorrow, just wondered if anyone had experience with either of the two bikes.

    Any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks a lot!

    Ended up getting a Charger 9.3 for a bit of a deal, absolutely needed the bike, mine is completely done.
    Went over a speedbump on the way home and the chain popped off. Is that normal for a new bike? They tuned it before I left the store, but that makes me nervous.

    Did it come off the front or the rear? Is there enough chain tension to keep it snug on the rear derailleur?

    Front, and I went over it a few more times and it seems to have only happened once (Or when I force it into the big ring, which I don't plan on doing)

    Just worried me a bit, anything I should look out for or should I just call it a fluke? Thanks for the response by the by.
