Who Rides A Norco?
hey all you canadian bike riders! i love my norco and i just wanted to see how many others ride norco. :)
Got a Drop 2003. Like it so far. But they really upped the anti with the 2004s. Much better value for money.
Upgrading to 6" travel link. Not too happy with the 5" Junior T.
May PUSH the Vanilla R.
How are you enjoying yours?
I got one-it is pretty good. I had millions of crank problems :mad: (cause of sqare heads or whatever) :confused: so I got a ISIS Giga-its beautiful. Yeah the shocks are great and everything too. I'm only 14 :eek: , but I swear I will be a pro when I get older thanks to Norco. I have only taken 2 or 3 foot drops with my Norco though. I am getting an '05 Atomik or Fuse as soon as they come out and I will be able to do a number with those. :) :D
New bike (Fireball)
Just received it last Friday and had 1 ride on it. A Norco Fireball for XC riding. I'm impressed with it so far.
i ride an 03 Atomik. its a beast but i love it!!!
incredibly well built for the cash! the frame has never creaked or flexed or anything. i wanted to upgrade the rear travel but theres no point since ill most likely pick up a new rame in a few years wiht more travel... right now though tis riding great. ill get some pics up in a few mins cuz all the ones i have are out of date...
03 Team Race, it rocks! Feels much better than the Bullit it replaced.
nice ride man! i forgot to post tha pic of my bike... here ya go!
I had posted earlier that I was gonna get an 05 Atomik. Well, I changed my mind. (Or my parent's at least!)

2004 Norco Shore
Got mine in October. Pedals a lot better than I thought it would, but I'm really looking forward to pointing it DOWNHILL!!! ;)
Sorry I don't have my own pic.....here's one borrowed from the web site.
i wish i rode a norco but dont have the money
picture the green norco that is mine with a stance kingpin and custom manufactured diamond plate downtube guard and thats how it will look in a week or so...
i come from a norco family. dad has 2, mum has 1 and i have one in pieces in the basement, awaiting conversion to commuter duty
Started out on a Norco
My first serious mountain bike was a '91 Norco Kokanee. Flourecent lime green...my god what were we thinking...lol :rolleyes: Now I'm currently riding an '04 SIX. Though the only thing that resembles a six is the frame. Highly tricked out with Dangerboy, Race Face, E.thirteen and a Push'ed Vanilla RC. Oh, and I just added an '04 888r. All the components that I replaced on the six were done to upgrade the DJ frame that I'm building. They didn't break or go to waste. Well, the bottom bracket and stem did break, but other than that it's all COOL!
I ride 2
2001 Norco Fireball Race, 2002 Norco Shore, Love them both, the BIG bike is the most fun, but the XC turns hard work into gravy. :D
Here's my ride
Just wanted to get a pic of my six up here. Should call it an 8pointsix now :D
ya i was going to put the kingpin on but its too small so i have purchased a Sherman Flick instead...
the pic of my bike is almost accurate just picture it with a sherman, a E13 DRS mavic D321's and a full raceface diablos cockpit
its a sickness

Upgradeitis is a serious illness and should be treated with lots of burrly anodized bits of aluminum. ;)

I love the Triple 8!!! So much smoother and 2 more inches than the stock Z150 and it weighs about 150 grams more.

Norco has treated me well, from my '98 saquatch to a 2000 Torrent to an un used soon to be ss 2001 team frame. but when it came time to enter the squish end of the spectrem I had to jump ship. Norco six bike of the year... I don't think so, get me off the lift line and into the B.C. please. great all around HT's, good though limmited spectem FS bikes.
