How long is a Norco Sight?

Norco Sight C2 29 frame This is a big bike, with a 485mm reach, 440mm chainstays and a slack 64-degree head angle that wouldn’t look out of place on an enduro race bike.

Do mullet bikes climb well?

“Mullets provide versatility between the two wheel sizes,” Saletnik told us. “They’re really fun to session, play on jumps, and handle most trails well. A mixed-wheel bike does more things well than other options. Also, smaller riders get more body clearance, which is especially important for downhill bikes.”

Are 29ers faster?

wheels have faster acceleration while 29ers are more efficient on longer rides. Smaller wheels accelerate faster than larger wheels. This is due mostly to where the weight of the wheel is distributed.

Can you mullet a hardtail?

So, I proposed that a mullet hardtail was the way to go. By having a 29in front wheel you get the steering precision you want from a regular 2.5in tyre, and you can run a shorter-travel fork to reduce the geometry variations you typically get on hardtails; making it a win, win in my book.

Why use a mullet on a mountain bike?

The advantages of mullets are numerous. First, they offer more control in rocky terrain. A bigger wheel will hang up less, and the steering is more controlled. Second, they offer more rear clearance, which is a common problem on steep trails and going over steep drops.

Are mullet bikes good at climbing?

Can you turn a 27.5 bike into a mullet?

Mulleting a 29er Blue: 29er front, 27.5 rear. Mixing wheels on a 29er is the easier of the two options in that you really only need to buy a single 27.5″ rear wheel and tire. Obviously, you’ll want to make sure the hub spacing and driver body match the existing wheel, and that the brake setup will work too.

How much does a Norco sight frame weigh?

The Sight moves up to a 160mm travel fork, with a DH-worthy 64° head angle. Norco offers both carbon and alloy frame options, and each one is seriously overbuilt. Claimed weight for an alloy Sight frame is a substantial 4.6kg with a rear shock, while the carbon version drops down to 3.8kg with shock.

Does the Norco sight have a bit of chain-tug?

I did notice a little chain-tug when hammering into slabby rocks while pedalling in the lower gears, which is the flip-side to the anti-squat that Norco has built into the Sight’s suspension kinematics. Providing you remain seated though, the rear doesn’t wallow a whole lot even in the open position.

Is the 2020 Norco sight a good bike?

The 2020 Norco Sight is much more of an enduro bike than a trail bike. This is not the all-rounder its predecessor once was. Good luck finding a bike that’s as solid and as well-thought-out as this for the money.

What is the head angle of a Norco boat?

Geometry wise, Norco has properly pushed the boat out with the Sight. You’ve got a DH-worthy 64° head angle and a humungo wheelbase of 1222mm. The seat angle is nice and tight at 77.3°, and it’s even steeper on the bigger frame sizes.
