    Rear triangle for a VPS Shore

    My son rides a Shore and after riding on Sunday I noticed what seems to be a crack on the left chainstay near the pivot. I would like to know if the rear can be purchased.



    Don't know the year but he loves the bike.

    It's a 2002 Norco Shore.

    Many of those cracked on the chainstays just behind the weld by the BB. Norco might still have some kicking around. Don't quote me on this, but I think new stays are in the $100-$150 range plus any installation costs.

    i cracked two of those stays in the same spot.

    norco prefers that you go through a local bike shop. if you're located in canada, any LBS with a norco account for bikes or parts distribution should be able to order the part for you. i'm not sure about anywhere else, although there's some info on the norco site:

    Emailed some shops and so far no replies, will wait a bit more and in the meantime look for a welder to see if it can be fixed.

    Guess that a new frame for the kid is in the not so distant future.

    Any welding has to be followed by heat treating. If you can't do this don't bother welding it.

    Norco has chainstays in stock for that year Shore. They were around $170. I checked their inventory today. I work part time at a bike shop but I am in Nova Scotia, Canada so I am not much good to you as far as ordering them for you.

    Thanks for the help, the shops never replied and I went ahead and got an used frame (SC Bullit) so the Shore will be retired and will be hanged on the wall as a momento.
