    No dealer within 80 miles, options?

    Looking at a Sight 1, frame only but there are no dealers within 80 miles of me. Are there any options? Buying from an LBS makes sense when the BS is L, that's not the case. Can a frame be purchased online or can a LBS order a frame even though they are not a dealer?

    Call around to shops near you and see if they are willing to ship, that's what I did. Good luck though, norco hit a home run with the sight and sight killer b and are mostly sold out.

    I didn't know if Norco had "no ship" policy with it's retailers. I'm not in a huge hurry. Almost all the parts I would use are on my current frame which at this moment is ok, but in the four months I've had it, it's had 3 warranty issues with the chainstay and each time I lose a week or two riding.

    I'm sure norco doesn't like it, but if they want to sell bike with the limited dealers... what are you going to do. I had two willing to ship, one contacted the rep and the rep said no, but was still willing to sell. Just let them know you don't have a dealer. By the way I hope you don't want a large and live in the states. When I was searching there were only 3 left and I've been waiting for a couple months now. Eventually it should show up.
