Sam Blenkinsop's Winning Norco Range C9.1 29er - Pro Enduro Bikes from New Zealand - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Sam Blenkinsop put the hurt on the field once again at the Dodzy Memorial Enduro for the fourth year in a row. This year he did it on his Norco Factory Racing Range C9.1 29er. Big Blenki runs a size Large frame which has a 461mm reach. His RockShox Lyrik gets 170mm of travel with with 90PSI spring pressure. His RockShox Super Deluxe is at 160PSI. On top of that big stack of spacers is a 65mm Deity Copperhead stem (he has always run 65mm) and 25mm-rise Deity Blacklabel bars for more height and flex. Tire pressures on his Schwalbes with Super Gravity casing and Addix ultra-soft compound are 23PSI front and 26PSI rear. The tires are mounted to Novatec Diablo wheels which are turned by a SRAM Eagle X01 drivetrain with HT X2 pedals. He's running SRAM Guide brakes and when we asked him about running the more powerful CODES, he said he "just runs whatever as he didn't need to slow down that much on his trail bike." Must be nice, Blenki!
