    It's a great riding bike. I got to ride LPS and Porcupine rim on one at Outerbike. It had great geometry for climbing and descending. The rear thru-axle is a great addition just wish it could be removed without a tool (like a Maxle). The wheelset on the demo bike was the only weak point. Something a little stiffer and with a higher engagement hub would be welcome. The suspension had a small amount of bob when climbing but not to the point where it was a hinderance or a distraction. Small bump compliance and square edge bump handling were good even at very high speeds coming down some of the double track Wher the trail is full of rock lips. It had a good temperament in the air launching off all the ledges on porc. The Reba was ok but I'm thinking it wasn't fully broken in yet. At this price point this is a very capable and fun bike.

    Nothing to see here.

    Looked like there was plenty of room for it.

    why norco, why?

    frame only for 2250? that is the same price as an intense, and more $$$ than most other FS 29ers. wassup with that? knocked it out of the running for me, norco is NOT a boutique brand.
    what would rainbow unicorn do?
