    if you haven't read the 650b All Mountain Bike Shootout thread, francois really likes the bike and gives mini reviews throughout the thread...

    I would like to own one of these. Looking forward to some more reviews when people actually start getting them and spend some time on them.

    Word I got talking with a Norco rep last week was they are not selling frame only options this year

    I too am keen to hear some ride reports.

    I test rode a large around the car park today. Felt sweet, but I'm gonna need the XL. Not sure if it'll be big enough

    Anyone riding an XL yet? How tall are you, how's the fit?

    i couldn't say if the xl is going to be big enough for you, and i'm certainly very keen to get on one myself. i do know that it has a TTT of 647mm which is excellent and quite large. amongst the longest out there. can't wait to demo both killer b bikes.

    It sounds like there are some out there, but is there an official release date? I'm looking at them too, but no Norco dealer near me.

    Sight Killer B anyone?

    Just tried to order one in the US and they are sold out until May according to the Norco dealer. The only ones that will be available in May are the 3's. If you're on the fence you better put your orders in now.

    Damn, that is one sexy looking head tube. How did you go about getting this frame kit? I was under the impression that the frame kit was only available in Canada based what I saw on the Norco website.

    Myself and my JrX racer that I help support are lucky to be riding for them in 2013.

    As for Frame Sets in the US. I would just ask your dealers to call and ask if they can get one. I know most of all the Sight Killer Bs are sold out.

    Thanks Cecil. Norco will be at the Southeast Bike Expo this weekend in Conyers GA, so I'll be able to get the info straight from them.

    Anyone riding a B3? Thoughts on the fork? I originally wanted a B2 but I was told the chance of one coming into my dealer was pretty slim. The B3 I ordered won't be here till May, so I am gathering parts to upgrade the B3. What other parts would you upgrade? Right now I have a Fox CTD rear shock, slx brakes, and going to upgrade the drive train to XT/SLX. Any feedback will be much appreciated.

    The Sektor that the 3 comes with is not a bad feeling fork at all - the chassis is essentially a revelation, just slightly different internals. I would probably drop in a revelation or blackbox compression cartride and it would be super sweet:

    Sektor after a Fox 36?

    Thanks 006. Maybe I'll just ride it and make changes later.

    I was lucky enough to take home a B-3 a few weeks ago and the dealer told me it would be the last one for a while because they were back ordered. Unfortunately I have only been riding twice since I've had it and I'm still dialing everything in. I'll post more about it when I have a few more rides on it.

    Yep, I was told the second batch was oversold by 300%. I'm hoping for mine in may.
