I picked up my ‘21 Sight from the LBS last week and have some miles on it now. This was a Build Your Ride with AL Large 29 frame, RockShox suspension, and Shimano drivetrain/brakes. I’m absolutely loving it so far.

I had put a deposit down on an A1 build a few weeks ago and was told it would be April before I got it. When the Build Your Ride program went live on their website I was able to order this one. Then the shop called and said the A1 build was also available, but I decided to stick with the custom build for the Shimano drivetrain.

Nice

Have any of you put a 30T up front? I'm definitely feeling the weight on this 29'r on the long tech climbs

I have a 28T on my 2020 C2W. Helps me get up the long climbs without blowing up my legs and saves my cassette! Worth it.

I'm on a 2020 27.5 and im looking to drop to either a 32 or 30T front ring.
I feel like i want just a little bit more from the bike on the longer, or the steeper climbs..
Right now (probably my fitness) i feels like im always in that weird zone either between the 32 and the 46 or the 46 and the 50. The 46 is great, but again i cant sustain that gear constantly, and one up/down is either slightly too little or too much.

Anyone heard something about what suspension compagny is best suited for the sight? Rockshock or Fox combo?

Any big guys riding a sight? I'm 230lbs and wondering if anybody in that weight range is having trouble getting proper sag with either a float x2 or super deluxe?

I believe they use either Fox or Rock Shox across the range so I'm guessing either would be fine. I'm not too sure why one or the other would be more suited the bike anyway.

Any of you put on a longer stem? I feel a bit cramped while seated on the large which I was not expecting. I compared the seated reach to my medium Troy and the large Sight is about 12mm shorter with the stock stem.

I'm amazed you even feel that 12mm out on the trail.

Norco doesn't recommend changing the stem length from the stock 40mm... could you perhaps try adjusting the saddle position? Move it back 12mm perhaps?

PSH! Fifteen years ago they wouldn't have recommended changing the stem length from the stock 100 mm.

A little more or less stem won't cause problems, but it's a fine-tuning tool, not a fix for a frame that's significantly too large or small.

This bike is gonna take a while to get used to, it's quite a different fit than what I'm used to. I've slammed the seat all the way back so we'll see how that goes, maybe I'll raise and roll the bars a bit too. I'm on the low end of the large recommendation at 5.10, glad I didn't go with the medium

I'm 5' 10 and the store advised me to go for a large as well, and it's a perfect fit for me. I can't believe some reviews are advising people to size down from what they've ridden previously.

I’d rather be on a size down than up

Some people size according to reach (horizontal distance from BB to head-tube top), some by effective top-tube (horizontal distance from seatpost to head-tube top), some by a hybrid method.

There's no clear way to translate traditional fit, with a slack seat-tube angle and short reach, I to a modern fit with a much steeper seat-tube angle.

If someone wants to maintain old-school "butt to bar" length (saddle to bar, including stem) on a modern bike with a steep seat-tube, short stem, and slack head-tube angle, the bike is going to be extremely long. Things have changed and bikes fit differently now.
