    26 inch wheels on Norco Sight?

    hi guys
    did anyone try it?
    it looks like the Sight have a very short CS. shorter then my 26" frame that I ride now.
    and the GOEthat Norco advertise , is based on 140mm front fork.
    what if you put on a 150mm 26" fork?
    and 26" wheels?
    will it have the same GEO?
    what do you think?

    thanks

    Should have the same geo (based on a 10mm Axle to crown difference between a 560b and 26" pike), and be about 0.5-0.75" lower BB.

    I rode a new nomad with 26" wheels for the last three weeks. It's low (12.5" bb) but it's pretty rad.

    I liked the nomad so much, I bought a Norco range last night.

    And will be putting all my 26" stuff on tonight. I'm expecting the BB to be about the same as the nomad. But without blowing through the travel all the time like the nomad does, the range should ride a lot better.

    I say for it.
