Dunno where you got 34 lbs from - review says 35 for a medium and Pinkbike had it at 36 for a large I believe. With the Range at 38 lbs, the Dreadnought looks light by comparison - PB had that at 34 lbs in a Large.

Indeed, my medium Dreadnought with coil shock and Double Down tires is 36lbs (16.3kg) on the nose.
Proper bruiser! Love it

PS. After you pass the 32lbs point, you stop caring about bike weight and focus on improving skills & stamina, IMHO.

Two years ago it would’ve been EXO tires and a Fox 36 and 31ish pounds.

Any comparison with the Forbidden Dreadnought? It has only 6mm less travel (154 vs.160mm) but definitely is on par with the Spartan
Maybe a full on 2021 Hi-Pivot only enduro bikes comparison/review is in order, since there are more such frames available now (Forbidden, Devinci, Norco, Cannondale, GT, etc.)?!

The rear triangle is another thing I’d be surprised to see complaints about, I bet the majority would prefer aluminum with 148 over carbon 157.

I switched over for a few reasons but the biggest one (kinda personal) is that I’ve come to terms with needing to not hit as much high consequence stuff anymore after a couple bad TBIs in recent years. The Dreadnought is perfect for someone who mostly rides park, shuttles, big hits/steep high consequence tech. It...more

New Norco Range carbon 170mm enduro 29er bike, with dual crown forks, proper baptism of fire!!!
Took the hits like a champ.
Hope the bike, hi-pivot & linkage doesn't disintegrate by the end of the race!
Talk about 1% edge case testing.

Yes what happened to the Dreadnought? Why such a switch to a multi-link design?

Nope, actually took a link out because there was still some play. Shifts/rides/compresses as intended. Frame size is a medium, allegedly you can even run a single chain WITH the original guide on a Small frame.

Just wondering if the regular chain (i.e up to 126 links) is too stretched with that setup, due to the 30mm of rearward axle path the bike's suspension gets in full compression/bottom out scenarios?
Resulting as such in premature wear and/or contact of the chain with obstacles, in between the bb area and tire, like going over roots, rocks, etc?

nice bike, the only thing that need to be added is a Hope Matchmaker

No issues, you only need to use 1 chain with this guide. The e13 guide “pinches” too much and requires more than 126 links in most scenarios.

*edit*
And the only friction/noise heard is from the idler pulley but there are aftermarket options to resolve that. The noise is only noticeable on the stand in the...more
