    NRS specs

    Hello,

    I just picked up a slightly used NRS and I have a few questions that a search would not yeald.

    I think it is a 03 but the owner thought it was a 04. Is there an easy way to tell. It is a NRS3 with red and black decals, rockshox Sid and pilot sl fork.

    also, in searching I can not find the sizing specs, specifically the front derailer and seatpost size.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Brian

    I'm pretty sure that every model in 2003 had the same frame and shock, and that every model in 2004 had the same frame and shock. However, this might change from region to region: I have an NRS2 2004 (Australian, if that makes any difference.) My shock is a Fox Float R AVA - from memory the NRS3 might not have had AVA.

    I think the 2003's and earlier had RS SID shocks.

    Also, I think there's another way to tell: The pivot point next to the rear derailleur changed between 2003 and 2004. The 2004 has 2 thin curved pieces of metal from the seat-stay down to the pivot at the end of the chainstay. The 2003 was more like a large piece of metal with several large holes cut out of it.

    Here's a US website that appears to be for a 2004 NRS3 - doesn't quite match yours.

    So, did you mean "silver with red and black decals"? Here's the best Google Image Search (hint hint) for 2003 NRS3 that I could find - looks like it could be yours:

    I think, but am not 100% sure that the seat is 27.2 and the FD clamp is 31.8.

    my 2005 takes a 30.9 seatpost. I believe that it was common for giant to spec a 27.2 post and include a shim.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
