NOS Norco Fluid Full Suspension Frameset 26/650/27.5

$450 USD
* Price is firm, buyer pays all shipping, paypal payment only / NO cod * - New Old Stock / Never ridden, has some minor paint scratch/chip marks from storage and disassmbly and there's still some dust in some hard to reach places. Also the drive side crank bolt head has rounded out because Norco put the bolts in too tight, and would probably have to be drilled out to remove the crank arm. - 2003 model year frame - Medium size labeled, works out to be a 17.5" size effective seattube - butted 7005-T6 aluminium frame - I measured the actual center-of-headtube to center-of-seat tower at 22" so the effective horizontal TT will be over 23" depending on fork length fitted. - Fox Float RL Air shock with adjustable rebound damping and lockout lever - Adjustable for 4.4" or 5.1" rear travel - cartridge bearings in all the main pivots - I.S. disc mounts only - Takes 1 1/8 straight steerer fork, 135mm standard QR rear hubs and 30.0 seatpost. - Includes CaneCreek Aheadset, Truvativ ISIS bottom bracket, Truvativ Firex 175mm length ISIS crankset with 22/32/44 rings (mid/out rings are alloy) and Deore front derailleur, and quick-release seatpost clamp. - Frameset as pictured is 11.0 Ibs - Tire clearance for 26 x 2.7" wide tires AND will clear 650B/27.5 x 2.1s (I checked with a Kenda Slant Six which is actually a 2.2 in tread width).

HT Components X1 Pedal - Review
The problem with unique cleats is what happens if the pedals don't take off and they discontinue production. I have wellgo's with that issue and wellgo is one of the bigger pedal makers, so when it becomes hard to find spares for one of THEIR pedals...

Yes because you know more than everyone else... Giant included who for 2015 have NOTHING but 650B mountain bikes.

Yes, but you're as typical for you, failing to grasp anyone else's point. In this case, Syntace HAD to step up in terms of publically available testing, because their previous in-house testing was non-existent, and when their stuff did get tested, it was by magazines which were revealing that their lightness came at the expense of durability, in a major way. In general its accepted that designs have to balance costs, strength and weight... but when you fail to consider any reasonable amount of strength at all simply to hit a target weight... well that's a serious problem then. As it is, they're still lacking in durability in some areas (RC's reporting that you have to re-check the tension/true within 200kms of riding on their wheelsets... i'm sorry but for the money involved, the wheels should be flawless from the start otherwise you might as well just handbuild your own... Shimano wheels aren't going to go out of whack in only 200kms and neither would Mavic's).

I remember highlights from it, the klein stratum bars were 99 grams and basically outlasted the fatigue test (the operator grew bored when the third bar was doing the same as the first two, just running the counter into six figures and switched the machine off), and that the hyperlite was the best for impact testing. I also remember that even the cheap $25 Zoom 170 bar, something that was heavily spec'ed OEM on a lot of mid-level brands at the time, did far better than the Syntace and even better than some of the bigger name brands.

Bicycling Magazine, like I said. They PUBLISHED the testing results.
