    I asked my local dealer the same question! I was told the chain stays are the same length on all of the bikes, but the mounting location on the frames change. Being able to select your chain stay length would be awesome, and would be a really vanguard move on their part. I would suspect Norco would need to stock a lot of short chain stays.

    Bingo, the front triangles are what is different between the sizes. The rear triangle is the same.

    I like short chain stays and I'm very tall. Again I wonder if I could put a "Small" rear end on an XL front?

    Incredible attention to detail on the frame construction and features. Nicest looking Norco bikes ever. A 1X10, Marz 55 and coil shock would look proper on that Range. Can the chain stays get any shorter? They aren't really long by current standards, but are still longer than a modern trail whip like the Enduro. Superb job Norco.

    Would love to build that Range up with some proper components and give it a go, looks like such a fun bike!
