    Norco Range Killer B weekend in Moab review

    Sorry no pics. I was having too much fun to take my phone out.
    I rented a Norco Range Killer B from Chile Pepper bikes in Moab Saturday. I rode Porcupine Rim from town and was Very impressed with the bike. I dropped the travel on the Talas fork and put front and rear shocks in the Climb setting and the bike climbed just like my trail bike. When the trail pointed down the bike rolled over everything in its way. I hit one drop really bad and rode out a nose wheelie for a minute. On a 26er I would have been over the bars. I'll be selling my 29er trail bike soon. The Range is probably the perfect Moab bike. For my home trails in the Colorado Front Range I would probably rather have the Sight.

    My regular bike is a Superfly 100 aluminum and a Gary Fisher Superfly singlespeed. I'm only 5'8" so the 650b wheels felt more proportionate for me. I rode my 29er in Fruita on Friday and it was awesome there.

    Good to hear! My Range is sitting at my LBS waiting for me to get my current bike sold so I can pay for it. Okay so it might not be mine yet but soon it will be.
