    Diamondback XTS Moto Or Norco A-Line

    Heyyy guys yes I know its another thread about buying the right bike.
    But I really really want to make the right decision because it is a fair bit of money.
    Anyways back to the point I am deciding on the A-Line or the XTS Moto.

    A-Line
    http://www.norco.com/2007bikes/Mount...view=1&deets=1

    XTS Moto
    http://www.bikes.com.au/p/289044/200...-xts-moto.html
    Better Link (PDF) http://www.diamondback.com.au/files/XTS-Moto.pdf

    I found the same price for both of the bikes as they are on sale.
    The Moto looks to have a few better parts, but I'm not sure about the frame.
    It also has less travel.

    So could you please help me out
    cheers guys

    I've ridden the XTS moto... It's a piece of ****, the geometry is whack.
    The A-Line also has better components, I mean sure, you sacrifice j7 for j5... but still, rcv is better than vf2, and the A-line comes with Fox, vs the Manitou on the xts..

    I'd give the nod to the A-Line, then again I'm now a big Gnarco whore after buying a shore

    this will be you upon riding each bike:
    A-Line
    XTS-Moto :

    vote for the a-line on this one. the xts's geometry is.... very hard to explain, very goofy.

    i have an xts moto, its a good bike, but the geomtry is a little weird and it can get pretty heavy. I am going to be upgrading to a SC vp free. Your better choice would probably be the norco, not that the moto is a bad bike, but its more for begginer riders to learn on.

    i had an xts... get the norco. the xts is an OK bike but it's damn heavy , the rear dropout has these wack little spacers for the axle (which keeps popping out on hard impact), the geometry's a little weird, and the frame's pretty damn tall. also, the jr T is a pretty crap fork.
