Re: Do you Enduro full-face

I put my knee through my lip on Natural High back when I first moved to Van, I wore a full face for a few months after that.

Now I just wear a regular trail helmet for most rides.

Re: WBP 20

Ah, the pic was from the landing looking up, mostly the transition, trees and takeoff, thought it was the road gap but guess not!

Re: WBP 20

Saw a pic of Fade to black on instagram, looks like the road gap got rebuilt / reworked? Smaller, bigger?

Re: Friends that have gone weirdo in the face of covid

Some people are just not worth the time, or the energy to argue with them.

Re: Friends that have gone weirdo in the face of covid

One of my (now ex) buddies from America that I've known for almost 10 years is convinced it's a targeted attack on America from China, that everyone on the planet already has it but the attack only targets or makes it active in Americans, that masks do literally nothing and they're just to control us, that no kids are getting sick at all, he refuses to believe any of the science, full on trump supporter, thinks America has done nothing wrong with their handling of the virus, he's just gone completely off the deep end.

I haven't spoken to him in about 5 months and don't plan on it.

Re: 2020/2021 Sight sizing and builds

I just wasn't sure if I should drop his insta lol, wasn't sure if he kept it separate.

Re: 2020/2021 Sight sizing and builds

There is a demo program that the dealers have access to. I'm not 100% sure how it works but the bikes aren't in the shops, Jason @ Norco keeps them at the warehouse. I would try John Henry since they're the official Norco shop and ask them to get in touch and get a bike brought in.

Edit - Also, I know there are demos because I've seen the racks of them at the warehouse, and I've talked to Jason personally. I wonder if the shops thought you meant in store demos.

Re: 2020/2021 Sight sizing and builds

There are plenty of demos, go talk to a Norco dealer and ask them to get in touch with Jason @ Norco about setting one up.

FWIW I spoke to multiple people at Norco / Live to play including some of the Sight engineers, I'm 5'9 and every single one of them said I would be on a large in 29 or 27.5

Is this what your other bikes have turned into? Looks sweet. Can't wait to see it built up....

Coil going on there?

Yeah, so far I've only sold the Darkside, still have the Wideangle. I spent a little of that money on this but the build will be slow as I make up my mind on things, and since nothing is in stock in the entire country right now lol.

I'll probably stick with air since that's what the Sight frames are designed around, but I haven't made my mind up about the build specifics yet. Not sure if I'm going to go Rock Shox or Fox yet either.

Very nice! Where did you come up with an alloy frameset? Are they sold in Canada? Over here we only get to buy the carbon framesets, which I don’t want :)

You can buy aluminum frames here in Canada, but only black for this year.

This one is actually one of their "Build your ride" frames that had some cosmetic defects (extremely minor scratches) that I managed to score. You're not supposed to be able to buy the build your ride frames standalone but this one was a special case since it had some small scratches. It's a 2020 frame but nothing has changed between 2020 and 2021 and I loved this colour so much I jumped on it rather than buying a complete 2021 bike.

Looks great. I like the colour. Enjoy the build and riding it. :-)

Thanks, I'm really stoked on the colour!
