    Maybe it's just 'cause I'm a hoser?!

    Well, I may have a GT Palomar, yes american made and it makes me happy enough on my tight budget, but when I do upgrade I will only go Canadian Made! Yes seems like possibly an ignorant decision. Hell, why not though?! I am Canadian, and I have pride in my country just like everyone else. Nothing feels better than using something in Canada, made in Canada, and I can't wait to get a Norco!!!!! Does anyone else feel this way??!?

    Part of the reason why Rocky Mountain and Banshee are on my short list for my next ride.

    well said man, I am looking into Brodie/Norco/Kona dh or freeride fs bikes. I am selling my truck when I get back home to Powell River, BC JUST to buy one! I know the average joe thinks mtbr's are crazy spending more money on a bicycle than a car, but I think they are crazy for driving instead of riding!!! I think they would change their minds if they sat on a quality bike though!

    Considering GT and Norco are both made in Tiawan then i would say that you are on the right track(???).
