    2015 Norco Sight

    Put in an order a few weeks ago (7 1.5c). However with the ‘14 sold out am on the list for the first batch of the 2015 model year (due in August).

    Sounds like there will be a few changes, making it easier to wait:

    Tubeless ready rims
    Magic Mary and Hans Dampf
    Reverb ---> Reverb Stealth
    180mm rear brake rotor
    Matte Black, with color accents ----> Red with Black accents

    Am considering, swapping out the Fox32 for a Pike but it doesn’t seem like the LBS will give a very good trade in for it.... have folks heard the details for the higher end builds?

    Took a closer look at the credit the shop was giving me for the Fox32, that along with a discount (10%) had me ready to do the upgrade to a Pike.

    One of the guys at the shop has a custom build Sight (alloy), with a Pike 150mm , 1x drive-train, Reverb dropper and SRAM Trail brakes. He was kind enough to let me take it out for a day. First time trying out those components and was pretty happy with the setup.

    In dropping off the bike, they had just gotten the 2015 Norco catalog, was able to look up the spec and frame photo of the next model up (7.2c) it comes with:

    Pike RC Solo air- 140mm
    Crane Creek DB Inline w/Climb mode
    SRAM Guide RS brakes- 180mm f/r
    SRAM X1 drive-train

    Had them crunch the numbers, looks to be about a $400 bump vs upgrading the 7.3c fork(which replaces the 7 1.5)... have them looking into the ETA in switching the order.

    BTW- got a quick look at a pic of one of the Range models, looks great in yellow.

    Any idea what the colourways for the Sight carbon 7.1, 7.15, 7.2 would be?

    How about the specs for the 2015 7.1C? And also, any price changes?

    Thanks.

    On the colors:
    7.1 Off hand don’t recall but pretty sure it was a solid color.
    7.2 the headtube area was the Carbon Fiber weave, due to camera angle and lighting couldn’t tell for sure about the rest of the frame... but it was a semi-gloss black with green accents.
    7.3(replaces the 7 1.5) Red (medium shade), with black decals.


    Prices:

    7.2 looks to be about $150 more.
    7.3 around $280.


    Consider the changes in the build, the 7.2 in particular is a pretty good buy. Did switch my order to one (look to still be in the first batch with a late August ETA).

    The 7.1 did get the top of the line Guide brakes the XX1 drivetrain and Pike RCT3, not sure of the pricing.

    The line up was the 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 the lower end build, don't recall the LE being listed.

    Also not sure if the Sight alloy is going to be offered. 3-4 days before the new catalog shown up the LBS got a copy of the price sheet, we couldn’t find the alloy listed. But did not double check the ‘15 catalog... has anyone got an order in for a ‘15 Sight alloy?

    LarryCal: thanks mate for the helpful info. Now to see when the dealers in my part of the world would get the MY2015 bikes... hope the wait won't be too long.

    I have been eying the sight so I was interested on the info for the 2015 bike. This thread confuses me though.

    Currently for 2014...
    Sight 1C = $5252
    Sight 1.5C = $4165
    Sight 2C = $3545

    So your saying that the 1.5C is going to be called the 3C now and go up $280 to $4445 and the 2C is going to go up by $150 to $3695? So is the 3C now between the 1C and 2C? I must be missing something here.

    If this below is actually the list of improvements to the Sight 2C, $3695 is a screaming deal!

    "Pike RC Solo air- 140mm
    Crane Creek DB Inline w/Climb mode
    SRAM Guide RS brakes- 180mm f/r
    SRAM X1 drive-train"

    I was wondering the same thing. He must have mixed up the 1.5 and 2. The 1.5 will probably change to 2 and the current 2 will be a 3 for 2015. then the question is what is changing in the build for the (relatively) affordable 3.

    For 2014 (MY) you had the following, for the carbon fiber Sights (USD):

    LE $ 6850
    7.1 $5252
    7 1.5 $4165
    7.2 $3545

    The 2015 (MY) CF Sights:

    7.1 ~ $6600 (Not sure of the exact amount). Top of the line model- replacing the old LE
    7.2 About $5400 replaces the old 7.1 (with the Revelation/Float CTD) with the Pike Solo & CC DB Inline
    7.3 Around $4450 replacing the old 7 1.5
    Don’t know if the MY14 version of the 7.2 will be offered but what I recalled from a quick look at the 2015 price list, only seeing 3 Sight’s listed.

    Thanks LarryCal, that clears it up. I really hope they haven't gotten rid of their lowest option though. that $3500 carbon sight was one of the best deals around.

    my lbs here in Nor Cal has 2 mediums, one 7.2 and one 7.15. he also has a large 7.2. i think the 7.15 is $4150 and the 7.2 is $3500.

    i picked up a 7.1 and I love it, but I kinda wish i got the 7.2 tbh. it would have save me a couple grand and I could have upgraded as I wore out or broke components.

    if you're set on a sight and want to get one he ships bikes. get at me if you're interested and i can get you in touch with him.

    It's dealer only (had asked for a copy or least the section covering the Sight). The LBS best guess was sometime next month before Norco goes public.

    Really wish they had the low cost option on the carbon for 2015. Other companies seem to be getting on board with lower priced carbon. I think they'll lose a lot of business if they don't have a similar option.

    Don't know if frame only will be a USA option. Yes it's a PF BB92.

    Well it sounds like certain dealers may have the info. Does anyone here know when they will make it public to the rest of us?

    I haven't seen any public info either. Good to hear they will keep the $3.5 carbon model. I'm wondering what changes there might be to the color scheme or components.
