    Help needed!

    Ok, have narrowed it down a bit (damn, there are a lot of good bikes out there!!)

    '04 Giant XtC 3 or '04 Norco Charger

    XtC would get better tyres and full XT

    Charger would also be upgraded to XT gear and better tyres, left stock otherwise.

    They both cost about the same.

    Which do you think would be better considering the upgrades?

    How do the 2 forks compare?
    Charger - Marzocchi EXR Pro
    XtC - Manitou Axel Comp

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the reply, 'am going for the Giant. Been riding Giant bikes longer and I feel that the XTC frame rides better than the Norco in any case.

    Sounds good I wasn't trying to put either of the forks down. When I helped my uncle choose his bike I recommended the axel. The times I have use dit it has been a good fork.
