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 »

Cmon, lets evaluate riders whether they have heart assist, artificial joints etc? Pedal assist is not Even close to motorized bikes, while it does help you to pedal further it will not make you better rider or will not give you still balls to shred downhill ... more »

Initially i was supper stoked to see this concept, however I put this on pause for the few specific reasons:
Stem must be-torqued;

I found that SWAT solution suits me better

Bmx does have steel steers, this is different from alu / carbon found on mtb;

Just to make my statement more clear: i’ve cracked alu steer on the fork which was considered as a issue covered by manufacturer warranty, The issue was prior ECD tool popped on the marked, however in case of any threads - warranty could be an issue;

Added a comment about video Next Level Bike Geometry: An Interview with Chris Porter 10/18/2019 9:27 PM

I appreciate the trend of longer / slacker / more travel bikes which brings stability speed and safety at the mountains (like a ski’s) - because it leads into the geometry change for the short travel bikes.


I purchased my last bike purely based on geometry, despite i do not need all of 180 travel, however at the moment of the purchase there where lack of short travel, slack and long bikes;

Being an owner of a 1320 wheelbase 29er, there are also some comedic downsides not mentioned in this article - largely based around logistics - the bike doesn't fit anywhere!
At least, not anywhere your previous bike did easily.

The most annoying of these issues is chairlifts. It's...more
