    make the descision yourself, try them all out, pick the one you like most and one that suits your budget more....
    If it was for frame only I would chose faith... I really like them

    1.Norco Shore 2
    2.Giant Faith 2
    3.Norco Six 1
    (My favorite) 1.Norco Shore 2> extreme freeride. not quite as much DH as the Faith 2
    2.Giant Faith 2> extreme freeride, downhill
    3.Norco Six 1> all mountain, freeride

    I vote for the new 2006 Rocky Mtn. Switch with the glow in the dark paint.

    just try them all...that is a lot of money to be spending and you are not sure what to get
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    Have you ever ridden on one? It definitely doesnt feel like 47 lbs when youre riding it...and color is preference, I personally like it a lot. You wont go wrong with any of the bikes, but my vote goes to the faith, even though I havent tried any of the others.
