    Norco is a Canadian Company, but frames may be made in Taiwan or China/

    I believe most of Norcos frames are made by Giant in their frame factory in Taiwan. I've also heard that Giant makes almost half of all the worlds bikes in this factory, including their own.

    Man, what I'd have given for a bike like that, at that age!!

    P.S. They didn't even have Bigwheels when I was that age.

    Go's up real nice. It's not the lightest bike but honestly I don't notice it on the trails. Most of the riding I do requires some uphill and that's why I got it. I do put it on a chairlift but only like once every two weeks or so. Rear travel is adjustable also which makes trail riding a little easier and downhilling a little more plush. Great bike for under 2G's (Can)taxes in!

    I could be classed as a Norco rider.

    What I have is a 2005 125 frame built onto my old Gt parts, so yeah I am a Norco rider.

    I rode a Norco Rampage full rigid for years, In 06 I bought a Norco Fluid 2. Love it! Tried a few other bikes before I bought it and am happy with my Fluid.

    I attached a photo of my new XC race bike, a Norco Faze 2. I was between this and a much more expensive Yeti ASR-SLC, but the local shop gave me a killer deal and let me test ride it for a weekend. I switched out a SRAM 990 11-32 cassette and I have some SRAM x.0 twist shifters coming along with a x.9 derailuer from my other bike. The WTB Shadow saddle is a bit too roadie like so I will probably swap it out for a Rocket. I'm also planning on doing a conversion from the QR skewers to 9/10mm thru axles for some extra rigidity.
    The bike's handling is incredible compared to my twitchy Raleigh hardtail. The downhill/freeride influence from the company really shows. I've left the bike in the 4.5" travel setting and have seen no reason to drop down to the 3.8" setting. The Fox RP23 pairs really well with this suspension. With propedal set to 2 it climbs really well and still absorbs the hard hits. With propedal on 3 it climbs like a hardtail.
    Right now it's around 28 pounds. I imagine I'll eventually get it down to 25 and call it good.

    I'm interested to know the weight of the '08 Rampage (I think the '07 is around 17kg or 37lb).

    I'm looking to buy the '08 and hoping it's maybe more around the 35lb mark.

    Mmmm Norco Rampage! Pitty I can't buy one just yet.
    Would a Small size be suitable for a 5ft7 lady?

    norco rampage

    I have a Sasquatch, practically same frame, and I got a small and I'm 5'11. at your size, you'd be sized at a small; I did it just cuz these bike handle way better SMALLER. Don't try to pedal it uphill unless you're ready to walk, too, they just dont perform going uphill(I only DJ and urban mine, thats how its set up. They are good all around FR/DJ even street park(again, if the frame is a small.)

    Hey thanks for that. After more discussions with the lbs I ended up going for an STP0 instead (haven't got it yet but it's secured with a sdeposit).
    I figured that as much as I liked the Rampage it would have been heavier than I wanted & probably way stronger than I needed too. The STP 0 has a decent spec on it, it's lighter and even though it's a DJ rig I reckon it would make a great trail bike for anything up to light DH, especially with a Pike on the front instead of the Argyle.

    bike has the stock DHX shock on the back but with a ti coil (had from previous bike) and my trusty 06 66RC2X. Fork is running with just one coil to save weight and give better small bump compliance. I made the decals at work one day when I had some spare time.

    I've got a proper chain guide on the bike now and some thicker tires (that nokion was flatting far to often) so the weight went up a little but but I think I'm still sub 37.

    I'm not canadian, but just got a fluid 1.0, the 4th norco I've owned.

    they are the most natural feeling bikes out there, I think.

    I couldn't get the picture to work but I got an 02 Norco Ignite with 03 Marzacchi JR.T's with 7" of travel and Fox Vanilla R. It has a couple other little things.
    Its been working great for me but I want to upgrade the Fox Vanilla.

    I just got a Norco Katmandu plus a CCM... it won't be seeing much off road action save for the multi use trails.

    If ANYONE owns an 07 or 08 Norco Hardtail in a Size Small (Geo is the same on both years) please let me know how much clearance there is between the pedal (when straight) and the front tire (when turned so it is closest to the pedal) and that will allow me to determine weather or not I will have enough foot room.

    Because I want to buy a 2007 or 2008 Rampage or Manik in a Small but I'm worried about my feet rubbing.
    Also, does anyone own either of these bikes? Do they go good Downhill and Freeriding? Are they Strong?
