    Norco 7.2 Charge or Timberjack?

    Hi all,

    I was dead set on a 29er until I rode my buddies plus bike. So I have decided to go that route. @ bikes I like are

    Norco 7.2 Charge, can be purchase from LBS for 900.00
    Charger 7.2 - Cross Country - Bikes - Norco Bicycles

    or the new Salsa Timberjack. This bike is not out yet and its will be a new release, so don't think anyone has rode it yet..
    TIMBERJACK 27.5+ X1 | Bikes | Salsa Cycles

    I like the Salsa much better but will it be worth the extra 500.00??

    also feel free to post anything that you think would be better than the Timberjack under 1400.00
    Thanks

    The Charger is not a Plus bike. Norco's Plus bike is the Torrent. This would be the closest Model to the Timberjack. Torrent 7.2 - All Mountain - Bikes - Norco Bicycles

    Which one kind of depends on your terrain. Assuming they both fit, I'd go with the Timberjack for more XC riding, and for gnarlier trails I'd take the Norco. Ride em both if you can.

    I like the Timberjack. And for about the same $$$, I also like the new (steel) Marin Pine Mountain (the red one). But I have yet to ride either one.
