The Specs on the 2007 and 2008 Norco Hardtail Frames are the same.

I want to buy a 2008 Manik, so that I can Downhill, Jump and Freeride. I don't really want to do any bigger than a small.

However I'm worried that when I turn with the crank straight out towards the front wheel, that the front wheel will hit my toes.

Anyone who owns a 2007 or 2008 Norco, could you please tell me weather or not there is much clearance between your feet and the front wheel when turning, if so how much?

If it possible, could you please measure (with a tape or something) the distance between your pedal sitting flat (when the crank is straight) and the front tire.

That way i will be able to measure weather or not I will have enough clearance.

Thanks. If you have any questions please let me know.

how tall are you, do you run clipless pedals, did you know there's a manufacturers forum? You're concerned about 'toe overlap'

generally toe overlap is less of a concern on freeride bikes because the longer top tube and slacker head angle get the front wheel out in front of the bike.

Alright, I guess I should be okay then.

Even if I do get toe overlap (thanks for telling me the technical term) I can learn to ride on the balls of my feet, apparently it's the better way for going downhill.

And yes, i run clipless pedals.
