I think I just worked out the Bruni mystery. He's running an eccentric BB in the forward position. Which would firstly give him a longer rear centre but secondly it would completely skew his Anti-squat numbers. The demo Is know for a high Anti-squat ... more »

Hate to be devils advocate But my DVO Diamond makes a similar noise when I run too high of a spring rate, not enough rebound and too little negative preload. I recon it's just a fast rebound with a smaller negative spring.

I think it's technically a linkage driven (high) single pivot because the axel is on the chain stay. but I know there is alot of overlap between suspension designs and it could be debatable.

I feel sorry for the Norco sales guys. There gonna have explain what that "cog thingo" is to everyone who walks in. It's half the reason I'm selling my druid.

Just spoke to someone in the loop. The 29er is a dual crown compatible 180/180 bike, the reason there using it at the world champs is mainly testing and the fact it has been so successful.

Pinkbike eluded to the fact they have the two new (high pivot) Norco bikes for the 2021 FieldTest in a recent podcast. Also Mike Kasmer mumbled about a lot of the bikes being on small wheels. My guess is the alloy one will be a cheaper 27.5 bike, designed ... more »

That makes sense, it's funny the more I look at this fork the more I realise it takes alot of inspiration from the 38. The arch is bent forward for head tube clearance. The crown has a more consistent shape just like the 38.

Is it just me or does the fork offset look way shorter than usual? The crown almost looks straight. Also the lowers go below the axle substantially which I think is odd (maybe 190mm travel).

Should we just set up a communal Google photos album for censored images? Because otherwise I feel like it defeats the whole purpose of this forum.

HI my friend Robin is trying to make a better water bottle holder. Would you be interested in answering some survey questions for him? https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfvXWdHtE03EXuuh_-hnFvQvp4evPR_6Mhp0LtEPXsq945Hfw/viewform
