NS Bikes Fuzz 650 Vivid R2C 27.5″ Alloy Full Suspension Mountain Bike Frame 2016

S, 209mm travel, Black, 27.5", 3.65kg, Alloy, Full Sus - Fuzz 650 27.5 FS Frame 2016: The Fuzz has been thrashed and flipped by Sam Pilgrim and it's proved itself in the racing environment too, taking podiums at major DH events worldwide. Racers have clocked their personal records on this bike and freeriders have taken lines that they didn't believe were possible. The geometry is truly modern, it's low, slack, has a tight rear end and a long front triangle. The 4-bar Horst link suspension has a significant amount of rearward axle movement, which helps to absorb square faced bumps. There is also a fair amount of anti-squat built into the design to counter pedal-induced bob. The shock, which is the heaviest part of the frame, is tucked away near the BB to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible. Thanks to the adjustable dropouts you can set up the bike with a super tight rear end or you can fit the wheel in a more standard position to suit the characteristics for any track and riding style. The short position results in one of the tightest rear ends on the market. Thanks to this, NS could really open up the front end and benefit from massive stability and confidence improvements, yet still keep the wheelbase (hence manoeuvrability) under control. The Fuzz has a clearly progressive leverage ratio curve. The first stage of the travel is very supple and absorbs small and medium impacts. Towards the end of the travel, the frame becomes stiffer, and gives the rider a feeling of support, which results in predictable launches off jump lips and other obstacles that require getting air to clear. It's important to note that the characteristics are different on the short and long setting with a noticeably softer and less progressive feel in the long setting. The 4-bar Horst link suspension system, unlike most other designs on the market (including virtual pivot designs) is immune to brake jack (i.e. the torque generated by the brakes will not cause the suspension to stiffen) . The Fuzz has been upgraded with a lighter and better looking toptube/seattube bridge and the integrated seatpost clamp has been removed for lighter weight and compatibility with carbon seatposts. All pivot points now have much more durable MAX type bearings. Frame: AL6061-T6 + AL6066-T6 custom formed and butted tubes, smooth 'double pass' welding in all critical areas, MAX bearings in all pivots. Recommended Fork Travel: 120-160mm.

The frame is the heart of the bike, a lightweight chassis that the rest of the components are bolted to. Each frame I list will be clearly marked as to it's intended purpose - whether road, MTB, cyclocross or other form of riding. Similarly, I try to include as much information as I can regarding the materials used, such as carbon, alloy or steel, as well as the sizes available and full specification.

This product is for sale at Chain Reaction Cycles, one of the largest online cycle shops in the world.

In addition to regular local service, Chain Reaction Cycles (or CRC as it is often abbreviated to) established itself as a mail order business via advertisements in bicycle magazines; this continued until 1999 where it launched it's now famous website at ChainReactionCycles.com. Their blue themed website stocks around 90,000 products ranging from MTB & Road cycling equipment, to triathlon, BMX and running kit. As per several other leading bike shops, Chain Reaction produce their own product ranges, under brands such as Brand X. To this day CRC sponsor many cycling events, and due to the company's size and efficiency are able to offer very competitive pricing on cycle equipment.
