    5'9" on a small? I wouldn't do that. I'm 6'3" on a XL

    On Tuesday, I went out and hit Black Oak, and something felt a little off about the rear end of the bike. As I was cleaning and inspecting the bike, I found a crack in the seat tube running nearly 180 degrees around the tube, starting at the weld for the suspension pivot. Lean on the seat and the crack opens up.

    Took it in to Bicycle World in Windsor - sure enough, it's a non crash damage crack. I go home and strip the bike and return the frame.

    Thursday AM, the replacement frame is in. Norco couldn't find a medium Faze 3 so they sent me a Faze 1 instead.

    And Friday I set a new PR on Black Oak: Black Oak Record June 15 RAW FOOTAGE [720P] - YouTube Strava Segment | Black Oak Time Trial

    Now THAT is customer service. 48 hours from "It's broke!" to "It's fixed!"

    Last year I bought a 2010 Fluid 3 and though I love the bike, I wished for something with a little beefier component set. I had done some good upgrades to it and the last would be a new fork.

    Well I walked into my LBS the other day (same place I bought my Fluid) and they had a 2010 LT 6.3 for a smoking deal. Sold my Fluid on craigslist in a matter of hours and went and picked up the LT. I kept my Havoc AM wheels from the Fluid but that was about it. Installed a FUNN Fatboy bar w/ Ruffians and now I just need to swap out a stem, seat post, install a bash guard and new set of Wellgo B-103 pedals and I'm done. Took it for it's maiden voyage today at lunch and love the way it handles.

    Heading out to Capitol Forest this weekend for the Enduro too!

    I've always been sort of a "must be handmade in my continent" kinda guy, but after building an '04 Sasquatch for urban assault and riding that to work for many years, followed by riding my friend's '08 Fluid (regular one) and being amazed by the climbing ability and dialed geometry, I eventually bought an '09 Fluid LT. I immediately swapped out the fork for a Lyrik U-Turn and dialed in the cockpit, but it's the best all around mountain bike I've ever ridden. I demoed a Knolly Endorphin before finally settling for the LT and haven't looked back.

    Built up the '04 Sasquatch again for my wife and they're both beautifully designed bikes.

    decided on a 2011 norco charger (equal to the 2012 charger 6.1) yesterday aug 13

    it was on sale, it was my size and it was the only one left. might've got lucky, just maybe. im a bit worried now since someone here reviewed the 2011 model and he said the bike fell apart within 6 months. i hope they are wrong

    Lots of nice bikes in here! Love seeing others still rockin hardtails, seems norco builds a solid bike. Im loving my new Bigfoot, but the front fork needs to go! Any recommendations for more of a freeride/am build?

    2010 Norco Bigfoot and 2012 Norco CCX3 (hiding...)

    Okay, I feel like a jerk. I need to call Norco for some people. What's the serial number?

    Hey, so I'm looking to buy a 2011 shore 2, they're only asking $800, that seems really low? Maybe not, anyone who's ridden the shore 2, does it climb "decently"?

    Re: Who Rides A Norco?

    The Shore is a fun bike. It got replaced in their lineup by the Truax, but doesn't fall short for freeride.

    I know a guy who climbs his and he always sticks with the group, even when there are guys on Norco's Fluid and I'm on a Range.

    I still say climbing is more controlled on my 2011 Range, but that doesn't mean much.

    What kind of riding style do you like?

    Condition of parts and whether or not they are stock, or if they are of lesser/equal/greater value determines the value of the bike. If it is sparkling, $800 is a deal. Post pics, ride it, keep us posted.

    New Norco owner... Riding a Team 9.1, bit different from the usual Norco rider...

    Have to say I really like the ride of the Team, goes exactly where you point it, climbs like a goat and the carbon mutes the trail chatter.

    I swapped out a few parts to get it set up right for me, shorter PRO stem, Syntace P6 carbon post, favourite WTB saddle, PRO carbon bars, ESI extra chunky grips and set up tubeless with Maxxis Ikon rubber. I'm still dialling in the cockpit, making small adjustments but it's 99% to my liking.

    I've been enjoying riding it so much my Lenz Leviathan has been getting a little jealous...

    The pic above still has the original EA70 bars and WTB Nano on the rear, but it's the latest one I have...

    I'm loving my 2013 Sight 2. Really well balanced suspension and geometry. Reasonably light at about 27.5lbs.
