I'm trying to get the most solid XC bike I can get for <$600 (Canadian) for a 6' /190lbs male. After visiting local shops, my current short list consists of:
I've done a bit of reading and I'm leaning towards the Norco for the Deore/Suntour components over the Acera/RST on the Cannondale. I do prefer hardtail.
Some Trek, Specialized, Gary Fisher and Rocky Mountain models are available locally but it seemed like I'd need to spend more to get something comparable to the Norco/Cannondale.
Thoughts? Feel free to make recommendations re: the above brands.
