    09 Norco Storm vs 08 Norco Storm

    Hi everybody, my first post , I'm probably one of freshest noob in the forum so please bear with me

    i was just checking out the 09 norco site and was comparing the new range with the 08 range and it seems like the 08 norco storm has better spec than 09 but yet its rrp is more expensive?? well to be honest, i could be totally wrong, but the 08 frame is triple butted, and drivetrain is better (deore 9 speed) etc,,, is there something that im missing?? besides 08 storm runs V-brake

    im not looking to buy these bikes btw as i just got myself a norco bushpilot 08 (pickin it up on thurs ), im asking out of curiosity and im pretty sure i must have missed something and is very keen to learn more

    Difference is in the more expensive braking system. Cheaper Tektro V-brakes (08) vs more expensive Avid Juicy-3 hydraulic disc brakes (09). Also better fork on the 09 version as well (Dart 2 vs Dart 3 on the 08 version) and WTB saddle (generic Norco saddle in 08).
