    Norco Website is updated for 2014

    The new Range Killer B's look great, but I'm bummed to see that they aren't going to make the Shinobi anymore...

    I'm loving the new Bigfoot. Nice to see them get into the fat bike game.

    Still riding my 2011 Range 3 with the 2012 Range 1 rear triangle. Kind of want the new Range, maybe when its carbon and I'm not being a stickler about my bike.

    After much debating and looking at so many bikes I am going for the fluid 9.2. Meets my needs for what I ride plus my last Norco never let me down once. Thought about the 7.1 but all my good hoops are 29er and I just don't think I am going to see that much difference going to 27.5.

    I meant to say when there's a carbon 26 inch Range, which I know they will probably never do.

    It's worth throwing a leg over a 650b before making that conclusion. I happily rode a Shinobi for a full season but always felt like it dumbed down some of my favourite trails and the big wheels (and wheelbase) were a bit of a burden on tight rock-crawling type trails. I've got a few rides now on my 2013 Sight B1 and it's a big difference from 29" hoops, both good and bad...but more importantly, significantly different. Much closer to 26" than 29".
    ride, eat, sleep, repeat

    I debated getting a 7.1 briefly to replace my Shinobi, but I really think I would miss some of the high speed stability that the 29" wheels allow. I ended up ordering the last 2013 medium Shinobi frameset in Norco's inventory. I understand what you're saying about the tight rocky trails where you're trying to thread the needle, but the Shinobi is just too much fun on the high speed chunk.
