    650b Norco?
    According to this: bicycleretailer.com/news/newsDetail/6462.html (I can't post links yet....or images cuz I tried to put roll eyes here -- whatever) Norcdo has several 650b prototypes & plans on having at least one 650b model available for 2013....

    Man, a 650b Sight might be near the top of the list of contenders for my 2013 bike $$

    More from Norco on 650b
    Interview: PeteSS Part II | NSMB.e.MAGAZINE - Freeride, Extreme and North Shore style Mountain Biking

    In the interview above, Pete is caught riding a Sight with 650b wheels on it. He seems to like it. :thumbsup:

    Check Norco's facebook page.

    They have photos of a large Sight with 650b wheels next to a photo of a medium Sight with 26" wheels. Subtle, but noticeable difference.

    Rumor has it that Norco will have 2 full-suspension 650B models for the 2013 model year.

    So whats the deal with Norco? I go to the website and look for contact info and all there is a snailmail address. This is 2012 isn't it?

    I would like to know some tech stuff about the 650b Range.

    You really don't need to search any further than the Norco web site to get an answer to your question.

If you are heading up to Crankworx this year in Whistler BC the new lineup will be on display starting Wednesday August 15th.

    The Norco PR department has been working overtime with the internet leaks. A google search for Norco 2013 turns up a bunch of information that is already out there.

    Weird that you have to go to the German website just to see photos of the 2013 bikes at the Vancouver dealer launch :rolleyes:
    The white Sight 650B (likely the "1") is now number 1 on my lust list.

    A lot of it has to do with how servers are updated. Hopefully it should be posted up soon.


    Saw a 2013 Aurum on the trails. Didn't think they've been officially released yet, so I had to wonder who I saw bomb by me.

    I still like my Range, but the 650b would be cool to test out sometime. Looks like there is no longer the ergonomic linkage swing-arm for hike a bike-like I use that one much. Laughing a little at the grips on the Aurum's though, probably rip those off in a minute if I had that bike.

    I hope Norco gains a little more momentum this year with being such a runner up in the 650b market.

    These both look really good! Does anyone know if they're going to be at Interbike? I'd really like to throw a leg over both of these bikes.

    Took the Sight B out for ride this afternoon. Hope to get out on a Range B before the weather changes

    The Range bikes will start arriving in shops in November. The Sight Killer-Bs will start arriving late November/early December. Check with your local Norco dealer to see what they are expecting.

    The new Sight 1 Killer-B will actually be offered in a bright yellow frame, instead of the pearl white picture floating around.

    How do you know this? I would love it in bright yellow.

    So you're saying the Norco website is wrong (and effectively misleading)?
    I personally prefer the white.

    Is the yellow just frame only, or late colour change?

    I'd take the white over this any day. Does this mean the white is no more? :nono:

    PS
    Please re-size the pic! ;)
