 its a hell of a nice bike but in my opinion the 2009 empire 5 had way sicker colours
  • 1 2
 wont rear wheel hit saddle when compressed shock?
  • 1 0
 thats what i was thinking but obously the linkage says therwise
  • 2 1
 this is pretty nice, but last years was so much better looking, this is just not as top notch as last year, i was so stoked to see what they were going to do this year with it, and i got disapointed

 Well i know i ment the normal empire 5. I should have mentioned that...
  • 5 3
 thats such a bad paint job, ugly, the 2009 paint looked a lot better my my opinion
  • 2 3
 I agree

 As I said before, the normal E5 had better be way worse-specc'd than the SE model to be $1300 CAD less.
  • 2 1
 is there gonna be a xxxx for 2010??
  • 2 1
 most likely. theres several bikes missing. a-line, six, etc...
  • 1 3
 I dont think so. I think they are replacing it with the Empire five.
  • 1 2
 dont you think 5" is a little much for 4x? thats why they had the XXXX (4x). but then again, someone mentioned something about they thought Norco no longer has rights to FSR, which is what the 4x is...
  • 1 1
 The empire 5 uses FSR - so does the Team DH - and both those bikes are availible for 2010 so i don't see why the XXXX wouldn't be availible as well...
  • 2 2
 which makes no sense cuz them norco frames look nothin like a specialised frame
  • 2 2
 if you take a look at the rear triangle kyleg43, you'll notice it looks a whole lot like a specialized..
  • 1 1
 o...didnt realize they were FSR...what is FSR anyway...? maybe google knows...
  • 2 4
 Full Suspension Research. Quite a few suspension designs fall under the design that was patented by specialized quite avfew years ago. Its not the frame design that is patented but the linkage design and the way is effects the shock. Unfortunatley for other companies, specializes thinks that they own full suspension even though their recent attempts with their in house shocks and forks (Cross country) were a failure. But their downhill designs are solid.

 ok. all i knew was they worked on it with the help of Norco, so Norco has some rights to it as well. thanks for the info though!

 aflo661, you're misinformed if you think that SBC's recent foray into the front suspension market was misguided. Their single crown forks are on par with anything that Fox makes for the same categories, and they work more efficiently in conjunction with SBC frames than any other suspension fork on the market.

 how much would it cost to ship one over?
  • 4 7
 Over priced for the grouppo on this bike. $3800 for juicy threes and x-7 isnt worth it.
  • 5 1
 i agree wildabeest, but those are elixers not juicy threes.
  • 2 1
 Thank you mountain goat, my bad. but still.
  • 1 2
 And just the shock alone is worth quite a bit of dough. About $750 i belive. I have one of these and I'll say they didn't skimp much. The only thing that really needs upgrading is the brakes. But I have to mention that this bike rides amazingly. You wont be dissapointed.
