question about Norco's 'Shore HT line

Are they all the same exact frame just with different specs? If they are could you buy the Rampage and if you wanted to could you put a 26 in the rear (minus a few adjustments)?

I would ask Norco but their "contact us" site is apparently unavailable right now, besides that doing this helps my post count

Oh sorry I didn't realize this year they have a 24" stock. That means it is built for it. The geometry has been designed to take it.

Also the bike will take 26" without any adjustments. The frames are identical (all 3 the exact same) and the other two come stock with 26" so everything should be good.

Sorry bout the previous mistake.

So for some odd reason they just decided to make the Rampage different this year by putting a 24 on the back? But you can still put a 26 on it right?
