The Good: Frame and Suspension Components
The Bad: All the stuff you want to take offOverall Review: The Decision I picked up my 2015 Jekyll 4 in June of 2014. This had been my first new bike in quite sometime and my quest for my new ride had a few requirements. 1. It had to have 27.5" wheels. 2. It had to have enough travel to be ridden aggressively on the ledgy technical trails around Las Vegas and Southern Utah. 3. I had to be able to pedal it, FAST. The toughest part of my search was deciding upon how much travel my new sled should have. My previous bike had been a 26" 140mm travel bike with 130mm travel fork. And it weighed around the 30 lb mark. This seemed to do the trick for me so I started looking into bikes Read More »
The Good: Good baseline components. Looks good. Very fun ride. It climbs well and descends as well as longer travel bikes I've ridden. Pops and plays making any two a lot of fun.
The Bad: The drcv shock needs a push mod to not bottom out. The frame is a bit shorter than average so you should upsize or the bike won't ride right. The fork is not query as nice as a pike, but for the price point I've had worse.Overall Review: I love mine now that I've installed the Push volume spacer in the rear shock. I usually ride an 18" frame but I went with a 19 and am glad I did. I recommend this bike as long as you are willing to fix the rest shock.
The Good: The suspension, the build quality and the handling.
The Bad: Gives you too much confidence lol!Overall Review: The Norco Range A 7.1 2015 is a beast!!!! It may not have a carbon frame but it will not stop you getting confidence to take on anything you see on the trail. I have to take my hat off to Norco. They simply hit the bullseye with their line up of mountain bikes. Honestly I still had that frame of mind that Norco just makes budget bikes. A few years ago I never once considered getting a Norco if you were serious about hitting the trails. That was the past, but now I realise that I was very wrong. I love Norco's geometry. The build quality is one of the best. I have owned different brand mountain bikes in the past and I Read More »
