    Still Loving it!

    The bike weighs somewhere around 38 lbs.

    Bought it at Clark's Cycle in Bellingham, I upgraded to MAVIC Detrax rims and the DHX 5 rear shock. Retail is $2700 with upgrades $3100

    Just got my first serous mountain bike. '06 Norco Storm. I got a sweet deal on it because it has a minor scratch (it was a floor model) and it's getting to the end of the model year. So far I love the bike; It ain't no fancy FS but it suits my needs.

    I have a Six 2005 and I love it, it tips the scale on the 41lb, though.

    Given that all the Norco guys are in here, I have some questions for you guys:

    I managed to break the derailleur hanger and lost half of it. I live in Mexico and there’s only one Norco distributor in the country. He´s several hangers lying around but he doesn’t know which one is for the Six 2005. I think I could recognize it if I look at it, but is better to be sure. So here are the questions.

    Which hanger does the 2005 Six use? Is it shared by other Norco bikes? Is it the same as the Six 2006 (I doubt it due to the TA on the 2005)? Hope you can help me guys, I’m missing the summer rides due to this situation.

    Thanks,

    Did you find you hanger yet?

    Hey all norco riders!

    I am going to purchase a 2007 Norco Shore 3 soon. I can't believe how they've upgraded the bike so much (fork, wheels, etc) and kept the same price... sweet!!

    What everyone's opinions on the 2007 Norco Shore 3??

    Cheers,
    Laurence

    Norco Team Issue

    Mine is a 17" frame. I actually bought the frame and then built it up from there. Previously I used to own a 96 Kona Kiluea which I had also "tweaked". It was actually lighter than my Team Issue but it did not climb nor handle as well. The Team Issue seems to be tighter feeling with more precision.

    Norco Six

    Does anyone know how much the 07 Norco six frame weighs? I was also wondering if the head angle and suspension characteristics would be negatively affected by a slightly longer shock stroke in the back. Any comments would be appreciated, thanks.

    I just finished rebuilding an old Sasquatch (full rigid) at the shop... it was actually destined for the bin until I pointed out the frame was double butted chromoly and really in excellent shape. When did the Sasquatch come equipped with Cantis anyways?

    My guess was that it was a very late 80's model and more likely dates to the early nineties.

    We just received an Atomik and are just waiting for a new rear hangar so we can get this monster up and rolling. The best part of this is that we'll be giving this bike away to some really lucky kid.

    I'm from edmonton, alberta and Norco hardtails are wildly popular around teens just getting serious about riding. Almost all of my friends ride their north shore hardtail line (Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Manik etc.) I was riding my 04 bigfoot until i bought a Big Hit last year. I still ride my Norco though because its so dam fun to ride. They put out a good product and are popular here in canada, how do the sell in the states?

    Here's my 2004 Norco Six. (Sorry about the crumby links, I'me on slowdem rather than high speed internet so it takes forever to put pic's on here)

    These photo's were just taken last week.

    http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/1240025/


    It's been kept in pretty good shape over the year's and has a nice parts spec on it, Fox Vanilla RC shock, the fork is a 2003 Slider with 152mm of travel, its the TPC+ version rather than the SPV , Supra N wheelset, 2.3'' Nokian Gazza in the rear and a 2.6'' in the front, Cane Creek STS headset, Hayes 9's, Hussies and a chain guide, Expedo flat pedals (very nice BTW-definately my pedal of choice) SRAM X.9 shifter and derailleur, PC99 chain and 9spd Cog.
    The Titec extention seat post is a good thing to have for these kinda bike's.

    I have a norco, But I don't like the way the seats are positioned. For some reason they are too close to the rear shock. And when moved down they can really damage the shock. Does anyone have this same probelm?

    You have a telescoping seat post (post within another post) You lower the seat to what you normally lower it to, and if it sticks out further then the seat stem, you cut enough to ensure the seat post doesn't extend further.

    Norco's from what i've seen so far are built like tanks. I have yet to hear anyone cracking a frame. Shocks are set to riding style, so if you're bottoming out, then you don't have them set right for your riding style. All other components are just that, components that everyone else uses. The only thing you have to worry about is the frame, and like i said, i haven't heard much about norco frames cracking.

    I decided to part out my XC hardtail for the last time and build up a more FR oriented hardtail to be used as the backup trail bike, winter trail bike, bad weather commuter, jumping, etc...basically a beater bike. My LBS gave me a smoking deal on a 2006 Norco Manik frame so I went ahead and ordered it two Saturdays ago. I got the frame last Thursday evening and built it up that night. For a shakedown, I used it to commute to and from work on Friday...it was fun for hitting stuff on the way but not the ideal bike for a 60km round-trip commute. Since then, I have gotten in a few rides and discovered a few things: definitely need a chainguide; this thing does not climb well but loves to descend; it's easy to throw around; and it loves drops and jumps.

    Just the other day I got a guide off of a buddy and it has been great...just a cheap guide but I can't complain because it was free...








    The sweet thing about this build is the only thing I had to buy was the frame! Here is the build:

    FRAME: 2006 Norco Manik
    FORK: Marzocchi 66VF
    WHEELS: Formula/Deore with Singletracks
    BRAKES: Hayes 9, 8" front, 6" rear
    BAR: Kona DH Riser
    STEM: Specialized Mobius
    GRIPS: Axiom Tattoo
    SHIFTER: Deore
    REAR DERAILLEUR: Deore
    CHAIN: Shimano HG53
    CASSETTE: Shimano LX
    CRANKSET: Raceface Evolve DH with MEC bashguard and 32T chainring
    BB: Shimano XT external
    PEDALS: Wellgo platforms
    TIRES: Right now...Noxian NBX 2.3 front and Specialized Roll-X 2.0 rear
    SADDLE: WTB Rocket V

    Picked up a NOS 06 Storm yesterday. Nice bike, and got it for a steal (over $200CDN off list). It's too bad Norco decided to neuter the Storm for 07 (Acera/Alivio? WTF? 06 is Deore across the board)

    I just bought an 07 Norco Rival. I'm not a hardcore biker so I didn't spend too much money but so far the bikes great. It's real smooth, has nice suspension and good breaks.

    OK I'll have to double check this as we ordred 2 and played around for the best fit.
    It's a Truvative Team Giga DH and it's a 68, 68E, 73 x 118mm.

    The shell is 68 but I have a thick BB mounted chianguide that I use instead of spacers.

    MY Build weighs 42lbs with lot's of places I could go lighter.
