2020 Norco Optic

FOX does not offer that size in the DPX2 as an aftermarket shock for the public at this time. They are special order for OEM and FOX's athletes only as far as I know. I am waiting on one to be built for me and should have it in April to put on this bike.

Can you give a little info on the wheelset? Rims and Hubs? I see they are Race Face rims. Are they a Race Face set or using another brand of hubs? Didn't know Race Face made a 29er DH Wheelset yet.

2018 Norco Sight C9 Custom Race Build

Good morning Bitumen83. I choose the Sight due to my riding style and the trails I ride on 85% of the time. I like a trail bike to feel lively under me. When you step up the travel to 6" plus, bikes start to fell sluggish on the trail unless you are pointing it downhill. Plus, I do race DH too and felt I didn't need two long travel bikes in my stable. If I were to have had a do it all build, I would have gone with the Range.

Hope this helps,

Here you go guys. photos of the MAXXIS Tubeless Rim Strip. Last photo I threw them on my Boyd Cycling Ridgeline carbon wheelset. Notice how the rim strip also hangs over to help protect the rim.

Like I said, not hijacking the review as it was well written and done well. Just saying not a fan of companies taking old designs and technology and claiming to be the one that came up with it. If anything, maybe give credit where it is dew and state you have redesigned it for your applications. For them to be going after a Patent on a product designed and brought to the market in the late 90s is nuts.

I have a long history with other brands and lets just say I have been spoiled.

Not going to call anyone out here, but the rim strip was brought to market via Maxxis in the late 90's. That's how we ran tubeless back in the day when racing the NORBA Nationals. The setup every Pro was running was Michelin Tires and the Maxxis Rim Strip. Maxxis also claimed back then it helps protect the rim and snake bits. Its funny how they are taking old technology and bringing it back to the market and calling it theirs. Note, I am not a big Maxxis fan, but credit should be give where it is due.

They were called the Maxxis 26DH2 Rim Strip. I still have 3 brand new ones in my basement. I would add a picture of one to this comment if I could.
