This under-desk elliptical can help you burn calories while working, and it’s on sale

Everyone stuck in the routine of working from home since the pandemic struck can attest to the fact that it can get sedentary. Since commuting and getting lunches outside are out of the question still for many of us, you’re pretty much stuck within the four walls of your house day in and day out, there are very few chances of engaging in physical activity. It doesn’t help that the line between work and life is blurred, so you’re likely pouring most of your time on work, too. You’re lucky if you can even allot an hour to sweating it out.

Cascade Components Announces Norco Optic Link

Here we are again with yet another new link. Almost a year after putting out our first Norco link, we are now doing one for the Optic. As with all our links, this one makes the suspension more progressive, going from 17% up to 23%. It also increases travel by 5 mm, putting it at 130 mm even. What does this result it? The usual stuff. The suspension feels softer off the top and tracks over rougher terrain better then ramps up to deliver support as it gets into the latter half of its travel. Because this is a short travel bike that also needs to be able to pedal well, we made sure the link preserved the pedaling characteristics and didn’t turn it into a tank to pedal. Geometry also remains the same since that is one of the traits we enjoy the most about the Optic.
