Mountain Biking - 2006 gear
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Just wondering if you guys can give some links to the new 2006 bikes and gear coming out? :p
Sorry about just leaving it to you to do it but to tell the truth i can't really be bummed to check out all the brands sites. :D

i can't wait to see norco's finished production line up for next year. i'm diggin the new team dh and fourX bikes. i noticed they changed the fluid's frame again for next year. from the small glimpse of it in the shot of the fourX it looks a lot better than the '05 fluid. it also looks like it's got the same rear linkage as the new fourX - i wonder if norco's going to start incorporating that new linkage set up on to all their bikes.

Don't know how much better it performs, but it looks awsome.

yeah, same here. but it's still a horst link, just a different way of actuating the rear shock.
yeah. I always thought bikes look tons better in real life cos you can just see how burly they REALLY are.
But still they always look sweet in photos as well

norco's 2006 line up (link taken from another forum): http://www.norco.com/ts/pass/templates/home.php?lang=en&loc=hm
looks like they moved the six into their all-mountain category - just like they did with the fluid some time ago. the new fluid looks a lot more xc now - not as burly as the 2003/04's. the new shores are spec'd with sc's, moving them into the slot where the six was last year. the 4by is gone, replaced by the xxxx.
sweet line up overall i must say. way to go norco!
