yes but the reach is not the only thing that affects front center... axle to crown, head angle and stack does so as well...

Not too sure what the geo is as I haven't seen it but i do tend to think the new bikes coming out are starting to get a little out of hand with the reach. Remember, the longer the front center, the shorter you want your reach as it's more bike to lift ... more »

That's pretty true... I've been out of a lot of work due to the pandemic, quarantine and on top of that air quality has not been great here in California. More time on my hands, more time spent indoors, more time looking through the internet...

Yea I'm kinda confused how shops and stuff are allowed to be leaking like this... Imma assume then that companies think it's okay to use it to drum up excitement and just leave this here https://www.mojekolo.cz/norco-shore-a-frame-silver-silver-27-5-l/ ... more »

I'm pretty sure that's the Shore with the High Pivot Horst Link 27.5 and the Range is going to be the one the Norco boys were racing at Crankworx which is 29er High Virtual Pivot. I agree there. I'm actually a fan of aluminum in general. I'm still skeptical ... more »

Not a fan of the IS headset of the Santa Cruz bikes. The new Intense looks to be a mullet which is great because I am 5'8 with short legs. I believe there was another thread where I explained why i don't like 29 in the back but to sum it up, it's the ... more »

Anyone got any word on these? I've been riding a loaner 2020 Primer 275 lately and really loving it. Looking at what my options are for my next bike and Intense definitely has my interest!

Added reply in a thread Would a Mullet bike set up make hitting jumps easier?? 8/20/2020 9:53 AM

reading through the responses... i should mention that my thoughts on the BB drop is assuming the geometry and travel and all that is the same. Not hacking a 27.5 or 29 bike and mulleting it...

Yup... it's all pretty crazy right now with none of the fires contained. I'm sitting here at home in Oakland just being stupid anxious reading all the updates. Already have had friends lose homes and others evacuated. California relies on inmate firefighters ... more »

Unless you have long femurs or is taller than 5'10, i'd think so yes... The high BB drop in relationship to the rear axle of a 29 wheel will require a little more of a violent yank to create the initial lift to rotate around that axle. That's because ... more »

Underbiking is bringing the wrong tool for the job... Bringing a gravel bike on black trails would definitely qualify for it i think...

that prototype Isabeau was riding looks like it uses the same front triangle and similar layout as Gwin's DH prototype. Wonder, if they used hers as a mule to develop the one Gwin is riding? Also probably wouldn't take too much to adapt that into an
