from Henry's insta.... not really hiding it at this point. Curious how it rides compares to the current one.

maybe the front end of the new Range is the same as the new DH bike.... just have to switch rear ends and that's why Norco is changing up the DH bike.

to me it looks like how Rocky does their horst pivot and is sort of hidden. I can see shadows where it would be.

from the Norco photo, to me it looks like there is a horst pivot. I would be surprised if they didn't.

Dustin and some others from WAO are on Druids and love them. Just rumors I've heard but I'm sure they could make a frame.

Lots of high pivot enduro bikes coming down the pipeline up in Canada.... rumors are Range, WAO, another Druid model and one spotted from back East.

Maxxis charges too much and MaxxGrip wears too quickly... I like a harder compound for the rear tire. MaxTerra not in DH casing. Assguy MG up front all day long.

no demand for 275 in larger sizes... it's like the 26" from 5 years ago. Smart move on them.

Maxxis needs to have the DD and DH casing in MaxTerra compounds. HR2 DD is the only tire I can find in the DD.

I used the Front in the back it's better than the rear specific. The rear specific wears quite quickly and I do find the casing (non DH) not suffice for the rear. Excellent price point!

from an industry insider, RS is also making a 38mm stanchion sc fork. Will go up to 190mm.

My advice to people: do not weigh your bikes - unless you're trying to build up a hill-climb specific bike. There have been a lot of tests and studies about bike weight, and the consensus is, it doesn't matter nearly as much as people think it does. For some...more

Sorry, but no.

This is the same old adage of people going "VPP has this type of leverage ratio curve (the upside down U)". As we've seen in the current crop of VPP bikes, this is not true. There is a reason the engineers at SC designed the old VPP stuff this...more

good to see TeamRobot back at it! I'm pretty sure all of the RMB Enduro riders will be on Slayers this year. (170/170).
