That looks a lot like the current Trance Advanced Pro 29

The cavity large enough to fit a piggyback/coil shock on the Ransom is going to look a bit funky. They are going to allow you to mount piggyback and coil shocks on the Ransom... right? Right?

I'm not sure of the accuracy but he had a look at the Atherton's predecessor here.

That green is sexy AF

I'm an old style crazy funky junky in my 60s who likes to ride DH for fun so it's a BMX for me!

You put it behind your butt, where it can clean up your wake a little bit.

I (187 cm) upgraded from 470 mm reach to 500 mm and it was the best thing I think I could have done. I even thought an XL Norco Sight (515 mm reach) felt great.

I'm subscribed to their RSS feed and the amount of irrelevant and confusing stream-of-consciousness nonsense they publish is impressive. At least their group tests are interesting.

What does it cost to have Linkage installed in your brain?

So this one slipped under the radar a little bit. The Escarpe's spec went unchanged, prices went up and some of the new colours are quite nice but the frame update turned out to be a carbon rear triangle. And by now everyone's probably already seen the ... more »

That'll happen if it makes sense to do so commercially. EXT is not going to eat Fox and Rockshox's lunch – they aren't competing in the same space – so I can't see there being much pressure for them to follow. Or even if they do, it isn't "disruption" ... more »

I would love an EXT shock on my bike but what is an expensive boutique air shock going to "disrupt"?

Who was responsible for the current Genius and Ransom (and, by extension, the current Gambler and previous Spark)? Pinkbike posted and then hastily hid an article and a video on Cervelo's XC race bikes. Not quite badge-engineered Santa Cruzes, but pretty ... more »

And the Assegai EXO+ MaxxGrip I have on my shelf weighs 1180g.

Norco appears to have stopped selling the Sight in the southern hemisphere and Israel, for some reason.

Reply to Factory vs. Performance Elite 3/19/2022 5:50 PM

It kind of depends on the product. Of those that include HSC in "Factory" trim, only the 36 and 38 also offer it in "Performance Elite" trim out of the box. Edit: Add the 2021+ Float X2.

Reply to MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 3/19/2022 3:05 AM

It looks like the change in the geo chart might be purely because they now assume a Fox 38 rather than a 2020 Fox 36.
