    Got my B2 on Sunday and due to work and weather haven't had much time to ride so can't give much beyond first impressions which are that it is nimble and beautifully engineered. I'm heading to Moab for a week in late March so will have much better feeedback on it then.

    Sight Killer B anyone?

    It's amazing how popular these bikes are but there's little info from actual riders. Maybe they are too busy riding? Bad weather?

    Is that brushed aluminum and lime green? Are you in the States? Norco's website shows brushed aluminum and orange.

    Edit:
    My bad. I need to learn to read before I open my mouth. You have a Range B3

    grey or a light pewter

    The website had me thinking it was a light olive green ... until I picked the bike up. An unexpected change, but I like it.

    I am in the states. The color is silver/grey/pewter and it is finished. Maybe a light polish, but not super shiny.

    Here you go.

    As you can see the weather is not that great for riding. Had it out for a few hours today and am very impressed. No noticeable pedal bob in "trail" mode on the rear shock and the shadow plus makes the bike almost totally silent. Can't wait for better weather.

    I hope to have mine built by next weekend. Have a Fox Float 27.5, DHX Air, Race Face Sixc Cranks and Bars, Race Face Stem, and MRP G3 Mini Guide that should show up next week. Got my Loaded USA 650B wheels (1741 Grams) the other day and have setup the Continental X-Kings tubeless on them.



    More pics to come as the build gets finished.

    My buddy just got his Sight Killer B2 today. Liking the Black and Red look. He hopes to ride it tomorrow if the rain stops.

    Right on. Shops around me (very few) are saying Large is looking like all sold out for this year. I jumped on a med. and it felt good but at 6' I really would like to demo the large also.

    Thanks Cecil. Beautiful build. 7.4lbs that's on the heavy side isnt it? you managed a good total weight though at 28lbs. Do you have a ride review anywhere? I am looking for a bike that will be the only bike in the stable. A mate has a Liteville 301 and has set it up super light so he can ride the epics too. He is not convinced that it will replace the 29er yet but definitely will not need a 26er. What are doing with yours? Is it the only bike you own or do you have other bikes for different types of rides?

    Sorry, I am not the best writer, but this is my first review after only 2 rides:

    I went to Iron City Bikes before I got mine & they said they could only get a frame so I found them at Cartecay Bikes out of Georgia took about 2 weeks to get it & have had it for at least a month now. Where are you? I ride Morraine mostly live in Butler
