The DH looks to be a decent bike, not sure I'm sold on any of the others though.

Also, Dimitri appears to be riding a Team DH, not a Vixa...

And Hoots is crazy.

Is there going to be a Six for 2010? No sign of it or mention I've seen

The Six had a lot of overlap with the Shore of Fluid LT, depending on how it was spec'd, so no more Six.

Yoke, not yolk.

Caption on DH: "The yolk is also forged."

Good writeup and pics though.

fergs - next time to make it look like a radgnar fest please wear a wifebeater and inject your arms with collagen. I'll wear the GoPro cam, ride behind you and film and make sure the fisheye lens shows the bulging arms on Boogieman. Caveat - I won't ride CBC so please don't make me.

Just went back and re-read MTBR's coverage. Those pictures are such a step up from the Mtbr shots.

I'm sad the see the Six missing from the line up. I'm presume Norco found the Shore and Fluid covered the Six. I was looking to replace my Nomad for the coming 2010 year and was eagerly awaiting the new Six as it was on my short list for replacement. Short list being new Nomad, Six, or SX trail.

I didn't care for the Fluids I've ridden in the past. I found the head angle too steep, and the rear end lacking stiffness for my riding style. I'm also not sure they'd stand up to my typical "all mountain" abuse, which includes some visits to the bike park and being thrashed down the hill like my DH bike. The Shore is likely a bit too heavy duty for what I use my Nomad for.

I do however like the full length seat tube of the Fluid LT. I guess no one has seen geometries for 2010, but I'm hoping the Fluid LT shows up with a stiffer rear end, more akin to the Six, and a 67 degree head angle.

MY LT feels just as stiff as my Six in the rear end. The new LT has a couple of big changes that make it burlier, but I don't know the geo. It does have an E2 head tube and the seat post is upsized from 27.2 to 30.9, it's the front bike:

I have lost intrest in the norco's. With so many other brands now they don't seem to keep up with the innovation of brands like specialized and santa cruz.




And there ugly.
