    Giant NRS Reborn?

    http://www.apollobikes.com/racelinep...E%20EXPERT%201



    Isn't this almost the same design as the old Giant NRS? Anyone have any idea how it rides?

    Interesting... I believe Bianchi is also making a bike using the NRS design for 2006.

    It really doesn't look like the rocker is at enough of an angle to correspond with the NRS design, but who knows?

    seeing as how giant's nrs patent expired this year, you can bet a lot of companies will jump on the design. they won't be able to sell them in the 'states unless they license the horst link patent from specialized though.

    Doesn't worry me. Raceline is Australian. I don't think they are in the States at all. They've certainly tweaked the rearmost pivot points. I'm not sure what that would do to the ride.

    I'm sure if it were ever made available in the US Specialized would have something to say about the suspension design.
