Created a new thread for the upcoming 2021 Norco Shore, as the 2021 Norco Range thread included quite a bit of shore info.

Looks like a bent top tube already

The new Shore looks to be a really nice bike ! (I would consider buying the frame if given the chance as it would make for a sick build) it sure does seem very very few people actually have one though, seems almost non existent.

I built up a frame a couple of weeks ago. Running it with a 200mm Boxxer and a DHX2 for 190mm in the rear with a climbing friendly drivetrain. It's heavy - 11.2 lbs w/shock for a large frame on my bathroom scale. Still tuning it, but impressions so far - rear suspension erases chunk really well, but the long stays plus rearward path make it more work to get the front end up or bunny hop. Corners better than I thought it would considering the high pivot/long stays. Very stable at speed. I bought it to replace a 2018 Glory; I see it as a DH bike that makes long bike park traverses easier and can also pedal up a fireroad to access legit DH terrain. I wouldn't want to trail ride it.

How has the Shore been ?
Looking at a similar DH/BikePark build with climb capability... Frame coming in some day Wink

I've been off the big bike due to injury since I last posted, so nothing new to add yet.

Now that I'm healed up and have been able to ride it again - I'm starting to love this bike. Never felt that way about the Glory. Highlights - handling through chunk, high speed cornering. Low points - it's a bit of a pig and the cable routing SUCKS. Caveat - I'm running a -1 angleset; I needed more front-center to balance out the handling with the long chainstays.

Hi!

I built up a xl-frame with a 180mm manitou mezzer. I really enjoy the bike. Both uphill and especially downhill. I rode a xl gt sanction before.

It pedals fine if you are not in a hurry. Pedalbob is ok while in the saddle.

On the downs it feels like a downhillbike, smooth an forgiving. The bikes limit is way beyond my limit.

It feels poppy on small jumps if you push a little bit, but it is also heavy and long.
Go straight an close your eyes the bike will handle it for you

The cable routing is bad and it rattles a lot in the upper tube.

Greetings, Seb

Spent the year learning the Shore. It liked the suspension rebound slowed down, but handled anything I threw at it. Capability way beyond my skill / dare. It is a DH bike with a wide range cassette and dropper - exactly what I wanted.
