Jamaican Bike Review?

Review of the 2012 Norco Sight 1

NSMB’s resident video master Matt Dennison headed down to the 2012 Jamaica Fat Tyre Festival earlier this year, and produced some beautiful video work. First came the bike-free scenery edit, then an amazing riding edit. However, Matt had one outstanding piece of business from this trip: Norco had lent him a 2012 Sight 1 to rip around Jamaica, on the promise that he would publish about his experience on the bike. Being Matt Dennison, he couldn’t just do something normal…

  Although he was burdened with a camera bag as usual, Matt got to rip around on the Sight as well. Photo ~ Ian Hylands

That rounds up Matt’s Jamaica experience – and a well-rounded one it was! Do you agree with Matt’s friends’ thoughts on the Norco Sight? Are you tempted by its new 650B spawn?
