    Question for Norco Sight owners

    I'm using about 80% of my rear shock's travel (Fox Float K) on the "climb" setting during XC riding. No drops, jumps, big descents. Just single track roots and rocks.
    This is with the sag around 10%. In "trail" or "descend" mode, I easily use all the travel. BTW I'm 135lbs.

    Are you guys blowing through your shock's travel this easily?

    Nope, I'm 200lbs and it takes a 4-5' drop to eat up all my travel in "trail" mode (25% sag set). I only use the climb mode for fire road climbs. Sounds like your LBS needs to have a look at that shock. Cheers!

    As long as my sag is set properly, it handles the travel well.

    I was bottoming out when the shock was blown, so maybe it needs a rebuild..??..

    My LBS just looked at it and they've ordered new internals.
    Thanks for the help. It less than a month old, too. Bummer.
