Norco's aren't trials bikes...they're closer to being...garbage. That's why they sell so few. And, they're ALL 26".

oh my mistake, i can't believe i fell for it when i clicked on the trials section on the norco website. and that ryan leech must suck cause he rides one.

anyway back to the light frames, no one cares about a bike that looks like a trials bike even if the company tries to market it as street.

I was actaully thinking of getting a moment and building it up, but i think that frame would crack if you go for a bit harder riding than street/trials.

I think I might get a samoon, or a new NS when they come out... we'll see.

How heavy is the geekhouse wormtown?

Norco's website also calls the manifesto a trials frame. I wouldn't call it one at ALL.

Likewise, there's no 24" trials comps...so there are no 24" dedicated trials bikes. Just super crazy street bikes that you can do anything on. lol

After all, who is the real authority on trials? Some no-name internet user or a very large corporation?

Hmmm . . .
