You're also a wild man for trying to use a cable cam during the coldest Vancouver weather window in years!

Great words @mattbeer. Glad to hear you were able to figure out a positive way forward and are now doing well!

9 2022 Team Changes That Flew Under the Radar
These are only the UCI Teams. Jill is still very much a part of the Norco squad.

There are a few advantages that 4-bar linkages offer over single pivots that we believe warrant the additional complexity. If we're talking about a single pivot where the shock and rear axle are mounted to the same link (like Orange uses), a 4-bar provides the ability to define more progressive leverage curves which we've found to be key in providing the best balance of tracking and support. A linkage driven single pivot does allow for a similar increased ability to tune leverage curve progression but a 4-bar linkage still provides a greater ability to tune anti-squat and anti-rise more independently of axle path. This can be particularly useful on a high-pivot bike were a 4-bar linkage allows for greater control over anti-rise and resultant suspension performance under braking while still achieving significantly rearward axle paths. - CR

We generally find that relying on digressive tunes to stabilize the rider while pedaling has a negative impact on the rear wheel's ability to track the trail surface both on technical climbs and descents. We've found that a more linear compression tune paired with the right starting leverage and progression provide a better balance between stabilizing the rider under sustained pedaling, while providing excellent dynamics under rider driven inputs and unrestricted movement of the rear wheel through rough sections of trail. On the rebound side, we find something similar where linear and sometimes even progressive rebound tunes provide improved tracking while still controlling rebound pushback after deeper compression events. This definitely describes where our testing directed us in terms of tune and kinematics on Range. - CR

Due to the linkarm pivoting concentric with the BB on the Range it was not possible to package this suspension layout on the Range VLT. The two bikes share the same name as they are both intended for big mountain, enduro type trails. But in order to package a motor and battery on Range VLT, we needed to define the suspension layout differently. - CR

Norco has definitely not given up on supporting the east coast and will continue to support all styles of mountain bikes. Through this pandemic we have tried to support our riders and dealers but within the industry there are some big challenges. We have to apologize for this and hope to get back to our normal level of Norco support and customer service in the future globally. - JJ
