    Head angle is too steep , great for jumping but not very good for the park!

    Lol. That does it kidwoo, you're out of here!

    Haha. Chill pill dudes. At first glance, yes, the bike does "look" like a trek (and that seems to be the running joke these days on every site).

    Wow. This crowd is unbelievable. What is reasonable cause to compare a bikes? And what makes one comparison more intelligent than another? Please enlighten me. So on VitalMTB you're not allowed to say that a piece of one bike looks like a piece on another bike? I never read this in any terms or stickies in the forum. If this is the case can some please update those items to reflect the constrictions its members would like to place on bike comparisons.

    Dlongb13, comparing bikes is a great thing. Comparing them without reasonable cause and lack of intelligent thought is another thing altogether.

    So comparing one bikes looks to anothers is a bad thing? Sorry if I seem confused. Next time I will be less observant.

    ALL I said was that it "Looks" like a Trek. I never said it was the geo or the same susupension. I said the Evo link "Looks" the same. Again, I used the word look. I'm not an idiot. I understand bikes and their differences. Don't play bicycle know-it-all .

    Trek's suspension isn't categorized by their EVO link..rather what makes its special is the ABP. look at the rear dropout on the trek and the Norco and you'll notice that the Norco has a pivot below the axle whereas the trek has their pivot integrated into the axle. Thats your difference homie... plus i'm sure the geo is different.. AND it looks like this norco has adjustable travel and/or geo.
