    2010 Norco Team DH Leverage Ratio?

    Anyone know off the top of your head what the Norco Team DH's leverage ratio is for the suspension? I'm looking for a new shock an am hearing that some shocks don't work as well for low leverage ratios.

    Thanks a lot!

    It's an 8" bike with a 3" shock. On average a 2,67 LR. Totally normal for DH, probably the most used ALR. It's not extraordinary low. Most shocks will work very well on one without any kind of custom tuning.

    It's actually a 9" bike. Guess that makes it a 3:1 ratio ha? I don't know why I thought it was more complicated than that. Must be one of those slow days...

    Thanks for the help!

    Nope, it's fixed at 9". Taken from Norco site Norco Bikes Mountain Bikes DH Race/Park Team DH

    "FRAME 2010 Team DH frame 228 mm travel"

    Yeah, I did a little research now, looks like the 2009 was adjustable, but the 2010 is 9".

    Yes, that would give you an ALR of 3,0. So it's definitely not a LOW leverage ratio.
