typically fork cost arm and leg for the dirt jump bike + probably frame; I would say for 1500 I would deficiently go custom route for the DJ bike;


Speck wise this Kona look like complete trash, you have only Frame and Fork that are suppose to be good

Any One Up or Shimano component that goes to my bike considered as a good upgrade (never used their stem so have no clue about this tricky lock system); formula brakes with their magic connector as well; Anything from race face considered as a opportunity ... more »

Cannot upvote u more! the only WRAP that is acceptable on the bike is chain stay, just to prevent metal on metal noise is some frames

Hostility is the result of my lack of patience for dumb stuff and how this industry will promote it nonstop and never mention that it is not necessary. Nobody wants to upset their buddies in man buns. I will and don't GAF.
BTW- How in the hell does this protect against anything but the most minor...more

In an industry overwhelmed with dumb and overpriced products. The protection film market is leading the charge for the stupid looking to give away their money because they don't want a scratch on their frame. Insane.

Why even bother yourself with frame coverage? it is already painted, why to add wrap on top of that?
it is free, less stressful and 0 hours wasted, and 0 waste

Frame storage on all frame - it is a win for a lot of customers, I like the bik, there are few things that confuses me, as a loooong legged person, seat angle, and ETT;

As for review - nice job Vital!

I’m big fan of set and forget system, i buy all bikes with simple coil shocks such as kage, fox dhx or so, sent them to tuner to dial in and forget about any known till Servise, then dial knobs and ride

Spot on review! Thank you;

I remember riding old norco 2014/2015 they just snap at the chainstay’s and were supershort in terms of reach; glad that they managed geo and hopefully reliability of the bearings;


New models looks quite promising;
Currently I’m hesitant btw stumpjumper evo and norco models as next bike.

Based on norco size chart 6’1 person should go with XL which is kinda strange to me, since this is average height, and i doubt 6’4 and 6’1 should ride the same bike size;

I never saw trails marked for triple crown, however saw trail marked for mandatory fullface and body armor, which makes more sense to me; Fox shock from 10 y ago is the most tunable, not the most advanced shock

Added reply in a thread Why are there still no 200mm+ Enduro bikes? 2/25/2020 6:04 PM

is there a big difference btw 180 and 205mm at the rear? I doubt I will feel it, I would agree that triple crown forks make huge difference going downhill, however on the rear anything 160+ has no difference, just use more tokens in case of bottoming ... more »
