Nice, I still have wet dreams over my 2014 Wilson. Wish I never sold it. Got my rotor bolts fully torqued!

Did you happen to see what that other Norco was behind it? looked really similar but with a paint job.

Snoopin around lookin for the best trails and sketchiest lines

Why is it that in 2020 all the shots of prototype bikes being used in public areas the pictures look like they were all shots on a Nokia from 2003 ?

4 year old phone, screwed up camera, and trying to take photos without being able to focus it or look at the camera so I don’t look like a creep in the lift line.

I get the feeling but in the other hand... Just own it. They are the ones who are out in public, they should expect to have pictures taken. Look at all the spy shots of proto cars that are making the rounds.

Looks very similar to the specialized Demo and enduro linkage!

Yup. Except that the shock driving linkage isn't concentric to the chainstay (guessing the bolt is hidden behind the downtube protector) and that the shock is not concentric to the two linkage parts but is driven by the vertical linkage.

But yeah, a very similar concept.

One can assume they don’t care about 30€ springs if they’re selling much more expensive shocks,forks,droppers,axs,zipp eccetera. After all they’re called rock shocks not rock springs

Actually, the system isn‘t too far off of the current one or their custom links

One could say that Spesh copied this system and adapted it to sit even lower in the frame.

did the slash always have that kink in small sizes or is that the new slash? looks very similar to the current one but haven't seen one with that kink ever.

Second pictite of the norco looks like there is a pivot and the brake is connected to the chainstay a-la-Devinci.
BTW I don't know why but I whished for something different from Canyon

The women's remedies all have the kink to allow shorter top tubes and good standover. It's not new, and as said above the paint is Project One

4:07min - New norco DH bike

There is an edge visible where the aluminium extension sprouts out indicating a pivot. And the way it looks is that the rear axle is mounted to the chainstay (effectively, so the bottom link), making it a true horst link.

Where's that hat now.
