    can't help myself... but looks like a session 88

    pictures are hard to make out but it looks like a cross between faux bar with an FSR rear pivot too

    Looks tasty. BB height looks a little tall but aside from that it looks very tasty.
    The arsonist has oddly shaped feet!

    is there such a thing as a faux bar crossed with fsr?

    It looks like FSR with a floating shock, like someone took a sess 88 and made it into FSR...

    I thought it was locked, not floating

    yeah you might be right actually. looking at teh frame only photo again, it does look like the lower shock mount is on the front tri not the swing arm...

    edit: meant front triangle not rear!

    You what?
    Wouldn't that just be a Four Bar then?

    I like the direction Norco had been headed in the last 2 years. I never liked their stuff before then.

    Can't be a Norco. It's not ugly?

    I bet it doesn't stay looking exactly like that. Just too similar to a Trek: The shape of the downtube. The headtube junction and fork bumper. The seat tube brace. The shape of the rocker.

    There's only so many ways to make a bike but this is just too similar looking and I'm sure their marketing department is aware.
    Keep the Country country.
