    your info is "short"

    we have no idea how and where you ride or what your needs are. both are good bikes.

    Pick the one you like, offers the best performance, value and LBS service.

    The forks and disc brakes are the key factors; both bikes are designed in Vancouver to take a real beating. Both are made in Taiwan.

    Choose the best fit and the shop with the best service.

    norco rival is a damn good bike i own an 07 model.

    Its light, its strong, it feels solid in the air, the AVID disc breaks stop like nothing, the tims are strong, the tires are grippy........ read the reviews on both bikes that might help.
