    I run a Norco Shore....a bit heavy (but so am I) and the bike is built like a tank and has survived weekly rides on the Vancouver North Shore and Whistler . I also enjoy earning my downhill and ride it up everywhere I can.

    The only thing I changed on it was a stiffer rear spring, a new handlebar, and Avid Code brakes.

    I love how this bike can ride uphill, real slow technical downhill, and super fast downhill and jumps without any problems....however, I have always lusted after the Knolly V-Tach, just not the price!

    Well, I am far from running anything like a FR bike, but a Transition Blindside looks pretty mean.
