Knobs design is one of a factor, consider more about knob height, angle and position, combined with profile and ratio, you will get totally different tire

I've been riding this bike for around a month and I think Norco nailed it. I've been riding similar style bikes Camber/Optic/Anthem for a while and decided to give this one a shot, and other than it being heavy (7 ish lb frame) its been an A++ bike.

This bike is one of the best bikes released this year. Only reason I don't have one right now is because of limited shock fit.

Cool. But I wish companies would bark up a "tree that matters". Carbon vs Carbon vs Aluminum bla bla bla really doesn't matter all that much on the trail. Unlike road riding, there are so many factors that contribute to ride quality. Tires, suspension, handlebar etc. Carbon fiber frames aren't bad, but they feel more like a byproduct of a stale industry (back when nobody knew where to take things to sell more of them...) than something fully revolutionary.

Small bike companies, here is an idea that'd be a game changer. Focus on getting the front and back tire equally weighted through an entire size run. Unlike frame material, I guarantee this would translate to seconds on the race course, and I'd happily take a 2 pound heavier bike to have it so.

Figure out a manufacturing process that allows this and you will win. Skis aren't all mounted at the same spot, neither too should mountain bikes.

I spent a long time writing up a review on the e13 TRS+ dropper, unfortunately vital pooped itself and the review didn't upload. Anyways... The e13 is cheap. It looks nice. It works ok in cold weather. It works ok in hot weather. It doesn't work if it gets wet. Rotational play after 2 rides. Customer support is basically "here is some info, you figure it out for us." Jenson passes on all issues to e13 and won't take back a faulty unit.

TL;DR don't buy the e13 TRS+ dropper post and especially don't buy it from Jenson.

Rating 1 out of 5.

Having watched it again, yeah, you did rip that park a newy. And I've never flipped. Back or front and certainly not fakey. Welcome to the family Son.

Looking back, I should add an addendum. The crank arm grind down the rail was super legit. But the rest of it my friends and I did fifteen or so years ago. I loves me some stair rhythm. Oh, but yeah, sick flowy whipage. Way better than me and my friends. Props to #influencer for the other latest throw back to the day!
