Norco's Gravity Tune abandons the standard one size fits all chainstay length ideological background. With each rise in popularity dimension, 5 millimeters are added in chainstay length, making certain that the rider experiences the same handling attributes regardless of what structure or wheel dimension they are riding. On the 27.5 bikes, that translates right into a 20 millimeter difference in chainstay size in between the additional small and also additional large, making certain motorcyclists on either end of the dimension range obtain a proportionally well balanced bike front to back.
The agreement on the Comp 29 was that it was almost as outstanding climbing challenging terrain as it was descending it. When charging rough descents, the Comp 29 felt as steady as a storage tank. With more than 6 inches of traveling as well as rock smashing 29 inch hoops, the Enduro does not constantly need specific line options as well as could smooth out laborious descents. The bike's wheelbase really feels long at times, and the base model specification can't conceal the weight really felt in the wheels as well as drivetrain, but called geometry as well as component spec can do wonders to conceal a bike's heft.
There was strong consensus that the bike was amongst the most capable mountain climbers otherwise the most capable mountain climber of its class. Testers returned from their laps with badly concealed looks of wonder on their faces, usually declaring to have lastly cleaned the most practically difficult climbing up areas.

This application of usual main frames as well as turn arms on various travel bikes allows for minimized manufacturing prices, enhanced quality control as well as a general lot for completion rider.
