    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.

    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.
    Common sense isn't so common....

    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

    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
    POST: Truvativ XR
    GUIDE: Dirty guide

    My LBS was blowing out 06 Shore frames so I picked up a Medium.



    It will be quite a step up from my 01 Stinky
    I'll post more pics, spec etc when I have her built up.

    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.

    Thanks! I love your bikes too. How much does your 4x weigh?

    They kept a 4x in the window of a shop I go by once in a while.. such a tease.

    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.

    how much do norco shores weigh
    MY Build weighs 42lbs with lot's of places I could go lighter.
