So good! There's so much mountain bike content out there, but few edits have the feeling and spirit of these Vital media recce vids... Sven, you are killing it! Really makes me want to ride bikes in the woods with my buddies!

One of the most sensational crashes (and runs tbf) I've ever seen during a WC. What this dude can do in the wet is just silly. I think Rob had some good insights during the broadcast, said the world champs jersey can mess with a lot of people but Reece is cozy as a...more

Is SAG an acronym now? What does it stand for?

I had the same GXP bottom bracket in my Reign for 4 seasons without replacing it and without it creaking. Ever.

Apparently, listening to Peak Torque on YT (https://www.youtube.com/user/stoppsi ), it's the frame tolerances that are a problem. As in they are mostly...more

"The Range offers size-specific head angles and link sizes in addition to size specific chain stays, a now common trend that Norco started." There. Fixed it.

The trick is to offset the BB (front triangle requires a fresh mold regardless) so that every frame uses the same back end despite scaled rear center lengths. Not sure if that applies here with the concentric main pivot layout though

Cannondale launched a similar bike yesterday, with actual ride reports and information to a collective yawn, while this comes out, and is vaporware right now, and the comment boards are lit. smile Norco marketing is killing it. Pivot take note. lol.

Threaded can creak just as much. It all depends on who installs it and how well. Most of the time, it's not actually your BB creaking anyway. You're just being one of those fools who believes everything they read.

" Many brands are offering size-specific chainstay lengths nowadays, but it’s great to see Norco doing the same," SRSLY? Norco started this trend in a first place, followed by others

I can only assume (and hope) those prices include Germany's 19% VAT.

this review does nothing to highlight the main aspect of this bar. the vibration damping. one paragraph doesnt do any justice and feels like a waste of a "review". really?

Well before you could buy the 2 year old close out bike at great prices. Now everything is in such limited supply those bikes are still full price if you can even find one.

Yes and no, they may have only increased the prices 10% or less, but that is MSRP. Up until this year bikes could easily be bought for 5-20% under MSRP, and parts up to 50% off online. Now that that is over, the price hikes are much higher for most consumers than 7%.
