 Got back into MTBing after 6 years of nothing, sold my 2001 RM7 and bought this bike.

My comments are in relation to my previous experience of riding a DH/FR bike. In addition I have only taken this bike out for a dozen rides in the month since purchased it.

I can climb everything I used to push up while expending the same effort. Barely any pedal bob and it feels like I am maximizing each and very pedal stroke.

On descents it is quite agile and nimble while holding the line on steep technical terrain quite well. The ride is very smooth and I have yet to bottom out the travel. (I am 230 pounds)

I have been utterly blown away with the performance of the bike and is making my comeback in MTBing quite enjoyable.

Norco 2011 Ranger 3 (MSRP $2225) — Redefine the term All Mountain. The new Range series is the Swiss Army knife of bikes with 6” (160mm) of lightweight do-it-all travel. Tough enough to attack the most aggressive trails on the way down and light enough to take on big climbs with speed and efficiency on the way up; riding the Range is a new experience in itself. From single track adventures to enduro races, all mountain trails to technical freeriding, the Range is the only bike you will need.
