Hey all,
new here and to the mtb world so greetings and appreciate any advice in advance.

I have the opportunity to pick up a lightly used Norco Sight VLT A1 29 for $4k locally and I'm on the fence.

Seems like a very solid bike but the reviews I'm seeing are labeling it as a charger that's not beginner friendly. How many cents should I throw on that opinion?

I'm based in Santa Cruz and there are a lot of tight and woodsy trails around here.
I ride motorcycles so am well versed in hucking a behemoth around tight corners, just wondering if I should steer clear given my experience or if it's something I can work through as I get better.

Thanks again

To further yourself with a little more info - there is an ebike forum web - this offers some info posts there with the Norco vlt 29ers - not to mention other brands to browse away......

The 27.5 sight vlt rolls with ease through tighter sections of trail switch backs.... my mate rides a very capable Commie 29er Meta often struggles to get me on these tighter switchy rowdy sections of trails.

would love the 27.5 but the deal opportunity is on the 29 unfortunately. I think I found the other forum you mentioned, appreciate it!
