    2014 Norco Bigfoot

    Just posted on Norco's Facebook Page

    One of the bikes you can expect to see in the 2014 Norco Bicycles lineup is a fat bike called the Bigfoot. This video is not the typical use of a fat bike but then again there is nothing typical about a fat bike!

    Current bikes:

    2014 Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fatbike
    2012 Trek Superfly 100 AL Pro
    2011 Specialized Rockhopper

    Just ordered one...didn't even realize I had a paypal balance. Kinda like finding money in the dryer and being stoked but then realizing its your money.

    On another note...the Norco looks pretty sweet.

    Let's call it... Norco wins on the "way of announcement" for all the new fat bike announcements the last 2 weeks (or week? I've lost track). This video is amazing.

    Here is a nice write up on Pinkbike as well... Video: North Shore Beer Run - Fat Bike Growler Style - Pinkbike

    And the video for those who don't like to leave MTBR

    Could also say it wins an argument against suspension.

    Was it just me or did the tyre pressures look too high on that bike?
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    No I was watching him thinking that looked pretty uncomfortable bouncing down the trail. Trouble is if you are going to ride fast you can't drop the pressure too much on a rough trail or you'll pinch flat.

    Bouncing down the trail on the edge of control is part of the fun .
    I thought he looked more in control than I probably do when riding the tough stuff.

    From their web page: "This footage steps outside of the intended usage charts...". Nonsense!

    It is one of the better looking "mass produced" fat bike frames at the moment the Trek one looks hashed together and the Kona just plain ugly. Still happy with my Salsa Mukluk though...

    Well, if you are going to release yet another hardtail, rigid fork fat bike, you might as well make a cool video for it. Bonus points for including a lovely young lass as well.

    Is this the first Canadian fatbike? I recall there were more than a few complaints about the pricing of Surly/Salsa fatbikes north of the border, so maybe this will help? Looks like a solid offering to me.

    For the Norco bikes I've looked at [FS all mtn] they are at the same price if not higher than other brands I was looking at like Santa Cruz which isn't known to be cheap.

    Canada is a low volume market - it's hard to get something cheap here.

    I wouldn't expect the Norco fatbike to be a smoking deal. Hopefully it will fall in line with the other comparable offerings.

    If you want to feel our Canadian pain - just as an example I noticed a Krampus complete at a LBS I frequent on for $2350CDN. The same bike in the US is ~$1950USD.
    Safe riding,

    I see your CDN pain and raise you some AU pain. A Pugsley is US$1649 and AU$2499.

    Yikes!

    You have it worse than us, but to be fair we live right next to one of the countries with the cheapest bikes/gear in the world so it kinda bums us out a lot!

    It helps living close to the border, every month or so I hop across to Point Roberts and pick up my goodies (I can do it in the morning and arrive at work in downtown Vancouver by 9!) Even better is that if the order is less than about $300 or so they just wave you through without charging duty, it isn't worth their time to collect it.

    I have a Pugsley frame waiting patiently for me right now, and I'll go down once my bhphoto order arrives. But I have noticed that photography equipment can actually be marginally cheaper in Canada.

    Yikes, indeed! You guys have every right to tell us to STFU when we complain about pricing.

    Which is why bikes from On-One are so popular (not to mention just damn good too). It's no secret that I haven't got a fat bike yet, but try tellin' the mrs it'll cost well over 2K and you'll soon find yourself well short of brownie points. On-One's frame/fork/wheel/tyre package is ~AU$770 landed. Much more "palatable".
