Bicycle tire Tire Bicycle frame Bicycle wheel rim Bicycle wheel


Crappy pic, and never mind the pedals (just for setup) but this is my NRS so far-

Flat Gray powdercoat frame

Fox forks 100mm

XTR hubs with DT Swiss XR4.2D wheels (very light)

XTR M952 drivetrain

Syncros seatpost

Easton EA70 lo-rise bars

Peeled off all the stickers and logos, so it is not flashy at all.

Anyway, the questions-

Rear shock is a stock SID, I weigh 200 pounds, so I am running 200 in the top chamber and 50 at the bottom, from what I gathered, this is correct for a no sag initial setup, I would appreciate some confirmation or even some setup tips from the experienced NRS owners out there-

BTW, this no sag setup is a first for me, so feeling no give when I sit down has me slightly baffled!

sounds good to me. had the same SID on mine and it worked great with that setup. I actually went a bit above body weight(personal preference)

I've got an NRS with a Cane Creek AD-10 rear shock... and I prefer to run it WITH sag.

Of course I've finally worn the poor bike out so my NRS days are officially behind me.

:D

That is about right. Depending on the terrain it may be like riding a hardtail. The nrs is a very responsive bike and with the no sag setup it is like a bullet. However, if you are riding in very rocky terrain your butt will be jumping off the saddle with every single rock. I set up mine with plenty of sag, both chambers about the same pressure. It is a less responsive but it gives me lots of traction.
