    2015 Norco Sight

    Put in an order a few weeks ago (7 1.5c). However with the ‘14 sold out am on the list for the first batch of the 2015 model year (due in August).

    Sounds like there will be a few changes, making it easier to wait:

    Tubeless ready rims
    Magic Mary and Hans Dampf
    Reverb ---> Reverb Stealth
    180mm rear brake rotor
    Matte Black, with color accents ----> Red with Black accents

    Am considering, swapping out the Fox32 for a Pike but it doesn’t seem like the LBS will give a very good trade in for it.... have folks heard the details for the higher end builds?

    Took a closer look at the credit the shop was giving me for the Fox32, that along with a discount (10%) had me ready to do the upgrade to a Pike.

    One of the guys at the shop has a custom build Sight (alloy), with a Pike 150mm , 1x drive-train, Reverb dropper and SRAM Trail brakes. He was kind enough to let me take it out for a day. First time trying out those components and was pretty happy with the setup.

    In dropping off the bike, they had just gotten the 2015 Norco catalog, was able to look up the spec and frame photo of the next model up (7.2c) it comes with:

    Pike RC Solo air- 140mm
    Crane Creek DB Inline w/Climb mode
    SRAM Guide RS brakes- 180mm f/r
    SRAM X1 drive-train

    Had them crunch the numbers, looks to be about a $400 bump vs upgrading the 7.3c fork(which replaces the 7 1.5)... have them looking into the ETA in switching the order.

    BTW- got a quick look at a pic of one of the Range models, looks great in yellow.

    Any idea what the colourways for the Sight carbon 7.1, 7.15, 7.2 would be?

    How about the specs for the 2015 7.1C? And also, any price changes?

    Thanks.

    On the colors:
    7.1 Off hand don’t recall but pretty sure it was a solid color.
    7.2 the headtube area was the Carbon Fiber weave, due to camera angle and lighting couldn’t tell for sure about the rest of the frame... but it was a semi-gloss black with green accents.
    7.3(replaces the 7 1.5) Red (medium shade), with black decals.


    Prices:

    7.2 looks to be about $150 more.
    7.3 around $280.


    Consider the changes in the build, the 7.2 in particular is a pretty good buy. Did switch my order to one (look to still be in the first batch with a late August ETA).

    The 7.1 did get the top of the line Guide brakes the XX1 drivetrain and Pike RCT3, not sure of the pricing.

    The line up was the 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3 the lower end build, don't recall the LE being listed.

    Also not sure if the Sight alloy is going to be offered. 3-4 days before the new catalog shown up the LBS got a copy of the price sheet, we couldn’t find the alloy listed. But did not double check the ‘15 catalog... has anyone got an order in for a ‘15 Sight alloy?

    LarryCal: thanks mate for the helpful info. Now to see when the dealers in my part of the world would get the MY2015 bikes... hope the wait won't be too long.

    I have been eying the sight so I was interested on the info for the 2015 bike. This thread confuses me though.

    Currently for 2014...
    Sight 1C = $5252
    Sight 1.5C = $4165
    Sight 2C = $3545

    So your saying that the 1.5C is going to be called the 3C now and go up $280 to $4445 and the 2C is going to go up by $150 to $3695? So is the 3C now between the 1C and 2C? I must be missing something here.

    If this below is actually the list of improvements to the Sight 2C, $3695 is a screaming deal!

    "Pike RC Solo air- 140mm
    Crane Creek DB Inline w/Climb mode
    SRAM Guide RS brakes- 180mm f/r
    SRAM X1 drive-train"

    I was wondering the same thing. He must have mixed up the 1.5 and 2. The 1.5 will probably change to 2 and the current 2 will be a 3 for 2015. then the question is what is changing in the build for the (relatively) affordable 3.

    For 2014 (MY) you had the following, for the carbon fiber Sights (USD):

    LE $ 6850
    7.1 $5252
    7 1.5 $4165
    7.2 $3545

    The 2015 (MY) CF Sights:

    7.1 ~ $6600 (Not sure of the exact amount). Top of the line model- replacing the old LE
    7.2 About $5400 replaces the old 7.1 (with the Revelation/Float CTD) with the Pike Solo & CC DB Inline
    7.3 Around $4450 replacing the old 7 1.5
    Don’t know if the MY14 version of the 7.2 will be offered but what I recalled from a quick look at the 2015 price list, only seeing 3 Sight’s listed.

    Thanks LarryCal, that clears it up. I really hope they haven't gotten rid of their lowest option though. that $3500 carbon sight was one of the best deals around.

    my lbs here in Nor Cal has 2 mediums, one 7.2 and one 7.15. he also has a large 7.2. i think the 7.15 is $4150 and the 7.2 is $3500.

    i picked up a 7.1 and I love it, but I kinda wish i got the 7.2 tbh. it would have save me a couple grand and I could have upgraded as I wore out or broke components.

    if you're set on a sight and want to get one he ships bikes. get at me if you're interested and i can get you in touch with him.

    It's dealer only (had asked for a copy or least the section covering the Sight). The LBS best guess was sometime next month before Norco goes public.

    Really wish they had the low cost option on the carbon for 2015. Other companies seem to be getting on board with lower priced carbon. I think they'll lose a lot of business if they don't have a similar option.

    I haven't seen any public info either. Good to hear they will keep the $3.5 carbon model. I'm wondering what changes there might be to the color scheme or components.

    I've heard reveal date is the 22nd of July. Also heard no more alloy. That kind of stinks.

    I guess the date was wrong. I apologize. I was on the phone with a bike shop in California and the guy said there was a dealer reveal event this month he was going to. He must have had the day wrong.

    First batch of MY15 Sight are due to be sent out in mid-August. So would expect Norco to go public a week or two before.

    Sounds like the 7/22 date is dealer only for some hands on time with the MY15 builds.

    saw the dealer cat today - bikes and builds look nice - especially w DBinlines and pikes on so many of the Sight

    I did see 2 alloy Sights in the book - similar pricepoints as this year, but wee bit nicer build spec IMO

    If you missed on a 14 - get the order going w your dealer now and get an early shipper.

    As OP posted - Ranges look good as well - lots o Enduro bike to come in these bad boys

    Also - the fatbike options/price look awesome. ~$2500 for a top spec w Bluto fork or $1000 entry point w decent spec...

    Rich - i think it would be good for Norco to keep em at their pricepoints - they did look to be redesigned tube shapes and shop owner stated that was to keep costs down.

    Of course - Norco may limit or hold production until they gauge demand... so nothing for certain as I see it.

    btw - were you able to score a deal on a Sight? (per your other post?)

    I did get my hands on a Sight. Its the grey 2014 alloy 7.2. Got it brand new and very much below cost on Ebay.

    But I also bought another bike, a new GT Sensor Elite for a ridiculously low price. I need to figure out which fits me better. The Sight is a large and the GT is an XL. Then I will throw one of them back up on Ebay. I would like to keep both but don't know if I could really justify that.

    The Sight is here, just waiting on the GT now.

    Ah yes - apologies as I had read that - I wish I had more "problems" like that

    my bike shop sells the GT's and the owner is categorized racer in DH, enduro and xc - he's had nothing but great things to say about the GT - and I think had GT put out a good spec sheet on em for the price they'd likely gone over a lot better

    do post up your comparisons - may the best for you bike win!

    I gotta say the Sight looks much better in person than on their website. And it came with black Deore cranks instead of the silver shown on the website. Its quite the looker.

    i will concur there - ALL the Norco bikes in shop look more vivid and way better than pix online. shop currently has red alloy and stealth grey Sights, and orange and blue alloy ranges -pretty freekin cool colors. Even my 7.2c looks better - i.e. the blue is much better in person than any online pic.

    I've never seen a different Norco than the one I have in person. Your carbon 7.2 must look amazing in person because it looks pretty damn hot in the pictures I've seen.

    Just put in my order for a 2015 Sight Carbon frame. Got to take a look at the catalogue as well. DB Inlines are standard on the frames and the top two builds. Top two builds also come with Pikes set to 140, SRAM Guide brakes, Reverbs. Wider bars across the board as well. Geo numbers are all the same.

    The frames are available in a metallic-ish yellow/gold and a red. Top build is the yellow colour, next one down is black with green accents. I am told 2015 frames will be in-shop for end of August.

    edit - this is in Canada, just thought id mention, not sure what itll look like in other regions

    Yeah I've ordered a frame only. Comes with DB Inline, and the rear axle. Red one comes with a FD mount and the yellow one w/out. No longer comes with the dropper post or headset apparently, but price is down to 2700.

    2015 Norco Sight

    So my Norco dealer (US) says they haven't seen anything yet regarding 2015 bikes. I guess I'll just wait to see if something pops up on the web.

    It's from Enduro Mag – First Ride: The 2015 Norco Sight Carbon

    Bike sounds absolutely killer, I was keen on the Troy, but this looks almost perfect. Got a stem and carbon bars to go on, and that would be about it!

    Unless it's possible to convert the 140mm pike to 150?

    I think this review is spot on and completely echos my sentiments of this bike after approx 50 rides and 600 miles.

    When I decided to go with the Sight - I went Pike 150, 1x10 via wolftooth, upgraded to Debonair when it was released (improvement over stock RT - wonder if the CC DBinline is much better?). replaced formula rotors with Shimano ice-tech and the brakes are now as good IMO as the XT's ive been running on other bikes, upgraded wheelset to I9/wtbi23 tubeless and Maxxis HR2 2.4 frt/DHR2 2.3 rr.

    Bike is simply phenominal! The 15 spec is SPOT ON!

    Its geometry, especially HTA, makes me think: I wander whether it would be possible to adjust and make it slacker.

    was looking at the 7.4 on the norco site, as they have the 15's on there now. specs look good, changed to shimano brakes, x9 derailleur. rims not tubeless ready. i think the same as last year. same old x5 crank that i'm tired of seeing on every bike but nice overall.
    there is also another aluminum model with i think the 7.4c specs.

    2015 Norco Sight

    I placed an order for a 7.3 c. I hope the red looks half way as good in the pic as in real life.

    2015 Norco Sight

    Thinking about ordering one of the 7.2s. Coming off an HDR and while it's a great climber - it just wouldn't hold a candle to my prior burly Mojo HD build.

    Can anyone suggest an out of state (California) dealer that would be willing to work with me on the price on a pre order? Pls pm me...

    The color of the orange is much better in person. I'll admit that the orange looks gross on the website. Norco had they 2015 lineup on display at Crankworx.

    I don't like the colors. i don't get why it has to be either blacked out so you can't see it, or so bright it glows in the dark. i hate the yellow. the orange posted above does look better than the norco site.

    me personally - yes

    trance is no slouch, but I think the Norco is simply spot on in every aspect

    35 clamp should never be used on a trail bike.

    Maybe it's just me, but the 35mm bar is and should be used on DH bikes. It's overkill and unnessasary for trail riding.

    I believe the bar on the 7.2 is the 35mm version. Maybe it is overkill, but I like the one I run on my trail bike and have no plans to go back to 31.8. I thought the build kit was pretty dialed and I admit that I have expensive taste. Even the Guido brakes worked pretty good, I don't know why the lever has to feel like the clutch lever of 1979 XT250 though.

    Yeah 35mm is good, just trying to work out if my carbon bars will fit. Otherwise will have to grab a stem as well I guess. I think the XL is still a 70mm stem? Might be worth it get a shorter one anyway.

    So you're saying the 2015 7.2 carbon comes with a 35mm bar and stem?

    I believe the one I rode had 35mm bar and stem, I can't remember for 100%, but I am pretty sure!

    It's so difficult to get one though. I asked from several bike shops about availability of the Sight. All say it may be available by December and for price which is 30% more from what Norco says in its website.

    I do know the re-released replacement 2014 front triangles are in shops now - and mating up to 2014 rear triangles - so basically a 2015 w 2014 graphics. Id bet your bikeshop can offer any "build" you may wish for a current model... dont know about 2015 spec arrivals... but if you are itching and cant wait possibly til spring might be a great option to investigate.

    Last time I checked the ETA is early December for me up here in Canada. Hard to say when you guys south of the border will get them. I'm on the waiting list for a Range 7.3 carbon myself, if it gets here before Christmas I'll thank Santa, if not, well, it's not like I can ride it anywhere until all the snow melts.

    Bought a 2015 sight A7.1 3 weeks ago and had a problem with it creaking since new,
    within 2km of a street test ride( up the street and back).

    Took it back to the LBS and got them to re-check all the pivot bolts ect ,creak seemed to stop for 1 trail ride then was inconsistent sometimes would creak and sometimes not

    turned out there was a striped thread on the top seatstay to rocker arm bolt now bike is back at the LBS for the past week waiting to hear back from Norco Canada

    i just want to ride the thing

    thought i'd share my experience here and see if anyone else has had creaking issues on a new sight?

    Interesting. When I got my 2014 range about a month ago, the shop had the updated front triangle it needed to switch out. One of the rear rocker link pivots did the same thing. Some ham fisted assembly line monkey had totally cross-threaded the bolt. By the time the mechanic got it out, the threads in the chainstay and the bolt were completely fcked.

    Got the dreaded call yesterday, pushed back to end of November at this stage

    I was pitched a couple of alternatives, including a Zesty and Bronson, thoughts on how they compare to the Sight anyone?

    Don't know about the Bronson since I haven't ridden one, but I have ridden the Zesty. The Zesty is a bigger bike, it feels & handles more like the Range than the Sight, but it's not as lively as either one of them. Compared to the Sight, it's a lot more monster truck feeling and not as nimble or agile, it's not as fun to ride. It's also pretty dependent on the electronic shock controls, if the E.I. is shut down and set to manual mode the suspension bobs more than the Sight & it feels a lot more sluggish. It's not as bad as trying to pedal a DH bike uphill, but it sure isn't fun.

    I also had heel strike issues on the giant seat stay, my natural foot position is slightly heels in and whenever I had to body english the bike to get it over obstacles (mostly low speed technical moves, ie. uphill rock gardens) I often ended up rubbing or smashing my heels into the seat stays. On a more positive note, it rips downhill more like a DH bike than the Sight. It's more of a point & smash bike than the Sight and I can plow through things more easily and still feel like I'm in control. On the other hand the Sight is easier to jump, and it's more fun unless the speeds are really high or the terrain is very rough since it's easier to move & flick around. You're trading off agility vs. stability, if I were to have only one bike I'd pick the Sight, but if I could have a couple of them I'd use the Zesty (or in my case the Range) as my more DH oriented bike and have a trail bike of some sort for everyday riding for where I live.

    Interesting, very detailed description, thanks! But by the sounds of it, the Range would seem all around better than the Zesty, pitty I can't get one of those either

    Zesty doesn't really seem worth it, might have to look into the Bronson some more. If I'm lucky the Norco will arrive before I make a decision!

    Yeah, that is my fear, I'm ok to wait until November, but if it's delayed again after, that's not so good. Especially being in Australia, missing the holidays, summer weather, etc

    Just talked to my LBS (Cartecay Bikes in Ellijay GA) about ordering a Sight C 7.3 framekit. They called Norco and was told that particular framekit would not be available until Feb. or maybe even March. Yikes!! But...that will work out just right for my situation.

    no idea haven't weighed it and don't have a scales to do it
    i did save 388grams by removing the front derailluer,cable,shifter ,2x gearing
    and going wolf tooth 34t drop stop + derailluer cover

    at a guess around 13.5kg but no idea really

    i'll see if a friend has a scale i can borrow

    The bike should weight around 30lbs or so.

    The most accurate number would be at your bike shop, different frames sizes (S, M, L) will have different weights. On top of that, different configurations (Sight 7.0, Sight 7.1 and Sight 7.2) will weight differently as well.

    The best way to get the weight is to put the bike you want, in your size, on the scale. All other numbers will have a range of +/- 2.5 lbs.

    I've got a C 7.3 on order and I'm told the bike should be arriving to the store mid December. I think it depends on which shop your getting it from and what model. I was also told they would be arriving to Norco on different shipments which would make some models or setups later like January or February as some mentioned above.

    Funny, you would think distance from Canada to US would be shorter, yet we don't have 2015 models here

    Nice bike, be safe out there!

    Awesome bike! I placed an order for the Sight C7.1 (just like in your pic, size M) a month ago. Expected delivery is sometime in March 2015...

    Anyone put a shorter stem on a sight? Swapping out from the 70mm stock one? Reason I ask is I sat on a large ( I am 183 cm tall) and it felt fine but slightly on the small end of reach for me. I would probably swap out the stem as that is what I am usd to. Which brings me to my next question. At the top of large size, would a shorter stem put me into xl size territory top tube wise? Anyone had experience of this?

    Standing at 5'10", with the stock stem I probably would have been fine on the medium. I bought the large instead and installed a 40mm stem. The direct steering that short stems produce is something I wanted.

    Not sure if it would be helpful but this is the major question which bothers me. I intend to buy the Sight. Being 178sm, I have an M size Scott Spark 710. It's got 85mm stem paired to 700mm bars. I wanted to swap to Renthal Apex 50mm and 740mm bars. It didn't work because although the handlebar lengthened by 40mm, the shorter stem made the cockpit very cramped and I switched back to 85mm stock stem. The bottomline is may be I need an S sized bike with <50mm stem.

    I'm 5'6" on a medium 2014 C7.1 with a 50mm stem. Bike fits perfect and rides so much better with a 50mm stem.

    Yes , im riding a 13' killer b (bottom level) ,notice my stem was too short(kept feeling like my upper body was pushing me off the back of bike) change to 100mm stem......too long ,felt as tho way to much weight over the front end when out da saddle....so it went to a raceface 70mm stem been just fine ....as odd as it may sound. (Not really sure if orginal stem was actually 70mm as i couldnt find actual specs on stem but it measure 70mm with micro)
    Ride hard everytime....or take up hiking...........lol

    Any updates on delivery dates for your bike yet? I have recently placed an order myself and was told mid Jan (that's in Perth W.A though). Where in Australia are you from?

    I cancelled the order and went with a Bronson (that I am still waiting on :S), but I know the date for the C7.2s is out to the 16th of Jan or thereabouts here (in Brisbane).

    I'm interested in this as well. I will be running mine tubeless when it finally arrives.

    I am debating between the 7.1 or the 7.2
    Either bike I would change the wheel set for something lighter. Stem would be changed on both and crankset would likely be changed as well. The cost of the 7.1 doesn't pencil out over the cost of the 7.2 with upgrades and selling off the unused parts as new.
    But then again if the 7.1 is within my target weight for this bike then I might just go that route.

    The wheelset is the main upgrade imo from the 2 to the 1. Although the x01 and rct3 pike are nice, the wheels are the biggest upgrade, so if you were upgrading the wheels, the only reason to get the 1 is the orange is oh so sexy! Also I think the RaceFace cockpit is 35mm clamp on the 7.1.

    I would run either frame with Raceface Next crank, bars and atlas stem. Wheelset will be i9 trail carbon or superlight. The difference in the rc pike vs the rct3 isn't important to me, I've owned both and they both ride about the same for me.

    Looks like I will probably go with the 7.2 as the black has a better resale value once my years contract with the bike is up. Also looking at near availability, the 7.1 doesn't have a set date in the US according to the shop I ride for.

    Yep, sounds solid. Both running the CCDB Inline is the main point I think, and X1 to X01 is pretty minuscule difference. That will be a rocket with the i9 carbon wheels!

    Has anyone heard when the 7.2 will be available in Australia. I heard late Feb!

    Also does anyone know the weight of the 7.1 or 7.2 as standard?

    I hope that's not accurate. My dealer has told me next week. I'm in W.A. BTW and have a 7.2 on order. As for the weight. I read 26 pounds, whatever that equates to in kg.

    Well I know the 7.1 has been arriving in Perth (W.A) over the last few week's. Hopefully that's an indication the 7.2 is not that far behind. Also another LBS but (not the one I ordered from) has stated to me they receive theirs next week. How well do you know the guy's telling you Feb? I don't know mine that well so could be I am being told a story or two.

    I know them pretty well and I was there when they called advance traders (australian distributer). Having said that I really hope that they get here soon and hope you are right. I have already paid for mine and ordered the new wheels (Flow EX on Hope pro 2 EVO) and RF Sixc 780 bars to upgrade straight away.

    That's not good then. I wonder why Norco would ship the 7.1's but not the 7.2's? I have been in a shop with 7.1's on the floor and another shop posted pictures of one before the owner picked it up so they have definitely made it to Oz. I would think it's more cost effective to send the whole lot in one (or several) containers. Anyway we will know next week if they turn up or not.

    Question for folks with 2015 Sight carbon bikes: any regrets? I'm currently looking for a short-travel trail/XC rig to complement my Orbea Rallon. I absolutely love the geometry and handling of my Rallon. The Sight is appealing because the geometry (reach, stack, chain stays) are very similar to my Rallon albeit with less travel and steeper head angle. The reviews are very positive but I'm concerned about the quality control issues raised in this thread. Have they been addressed? I'd like to get the framekit about build it up myself.

    I'd probably go something smaller than the Sight to be honest. What about an SC 5010 or something?

    5010 is definitely not on my list. Cockpit is too cramped. Longer reach up front is a must and I never really fit the SC frames well. I'm also thinking about the new Knolly Endorphin 27.5.

    Ah fair enough. I would just get something not as close to the Rallon personally. But each to their own!

    I'm waiting on a c7.3 and have been told the shop should be getting them very soon. The bikes have been packaged and are getting ready to leave or have already left Vancouver. My bike is being shipped to Georgia USA. Can't wait any longer. Stuck on a crash replacement specialized camber...

    Yes, I have a 2014/2015 Rallon (R4 model). My medium frame has a 442mm reach, 611mm stack and 455mm seat tube (I use a 125mm dropper post). Comparable fit to a large Sight carbon. Rallon is only available in small,medium and large.

    Mine is leaving Sydney tomorrow according to the dealer so fingers crossed that's accurate and I receive it next week sometime. Maybe yours was the second shipment?

    Where do you live? I have not received mine yet!

    It is interesting that you ordered a large. I am 192cm and I also ordered a large.
    with a 60mm stem it will have the same reach as my Yeti SB66a with a 35mm stem.

    The Sight XL was too large for me on paper.

    Christchurch, New Zealand.

    I'm coming from an oldschool xc/trail background. I'm new to this short stem wide bar idea. i'm was planning on a 50mm stem but are happy with the 60 at the moment. My last bike, a med Motolite with a 100mm stem, had a longer reach. I tried a med sight and it just felt to short to me but would be great if i was more jump/downhill focused.
    I don't think you would want to be any shorter than me on a large.

    I have only been up the street (many times) on it. I am putting a frame skin on it to protect it and did not want dust under the film. Should have time to get it all ready this weekend.

    Sorry been out riding and having too much fun to get on the computer!
    The bike is awesome but I think everyone who gets a new bike says / thinks that until the honeymoon period wares off. I am about 200km in at the moment so hopefully the goggles have been taken off and I can comment on the bike.

    Straight off the bat the bike feels very lively and it really rips up the hill BUT…
    Those Schalble Muddy Mary tires are HUGE and there rolling resistance is terrible compare to high roller or even minions. I have taken it off and put the Hans Danpf on the front and an ardent 2.4 on the rear.

    On the downs the bike feels great but needed a little more HSC and a little more HSR for my liking from the factory settings.

    I have upgrade a few parts from my old bike which were:

    Raceface Sixc DH 780 Carbon Bars
    Sram XO Carbon Cranks
    Raceface 34 Narrow Wide rine
    Stans Flow EX – Hope Pro 2 EVO Wheels
    Maxxis Ardent 2.4 Rear (Tubeless)
    Schwalbe Hans Danpf Front (Tubeless)

    Total weight saving 856g (weighed on my thermomix)! Which is incredible I think. I genuinely did not think that it would be that much.

    Regardless of the weight savings even the stock bike was great and really felt a lot more capable than the 140mm typically suggests.

    For anyone who is about to pick one up make sure that you check:
    The cassette lock nut has not been over tightened by the factory.
    The rear shock is not zeroed instead of being set to the factory preset.


    Cheers

    Still waiting for mine. Should arrive Thursday this week. How do I tell if the cassette has been overtightened? Check the torque? Did you locktight the rear pivot bolts? I hear they can come loose. After spending a bit of time now are you happy with it now? What was your previous bike out of interest?

    Put it together yesterday. Awesome bike. Great spec.
    Don't like the SRAM Guide brakes though coming of Shimano XT's. But that's my personal taste. In the process of swapping them over at the moment. Didnt like the stock grips, they were too skinny and i dislike the half waffle pattern. Swapped them out too. Holed the rear tire in the first 5km but it just required a plug and I was away again (tubeless).
    Love the 1x11 set up. Have never ridden that before, certainly not missing the front derailleur! Love the Pike fork. Very progressive and firms right up towards the bottom of the stroke. The wide bars are taking a bit to get used to, I may cut them down slightly but will get a few more rides in first. My last bike was a 26er XC bike and it feels close to that in the way it handles. Very happy with it.
    Overall I am very happy. Definitely a great bike that is far more capable than will ever be.

    Anyone in the US have an update as to when their bike might arrive? I know its only Feb., but been expecting mine for 2 months and the dealer has no idea when it may arrive. Is this typical for a dealer? I've never ordered a bike, so this is a new experience!

    Thanks-

    Interesting kamper, would this be on Colfax or Tejon? The shop I ordered from lost my number once, maybe they did it again!

    I ordered a Sight A7.1 yesterday. Super stoked but I won't get it until near the end of March due to the dock strike issues. I sold my current bike yesterday so I'm bikeless!

    I really hope the yellow doesn't look too bad in person.

    I've seen it in person, looks awesome imo, even better than the yellow from the 7.2 last year

    I live in the Pacific Northwest and got my medium yesterday. 26.9 pounds on the shop scale without pedals and set up tubeless. Can't wait to take it out!

    Nice! That's pretty much a dream bike.

    I wonder if Norco will start shipping bikes sooner now that the dock strike issues have been iron out? Seems like all of the shops in my area are not expecting bikes until April. Anyone have any insight?

    Hi all,

    I want to put a 2012 fox float R23 kashima XV on my 2013 Sight.
    Does anybody can give me the internal settings of their factory-mounted float (I mean rebound tune, velocity tune and boost valve tune (pressure), and, ideally, volume reducers if any) ?
    I asked Norco 2 weeks ago, but no answer from them .

    Thank you

    Hi all, Thanks for sharing all the post.

    Here a small contribution. (Comments and video)

    I got the 2015 framekit from germany and finished the bluit last week.
    Frame is about 2925 g with Norco seatclamp / sram BB and syntaxe x12 axle.
    I got a total weight with pedal of 11,5 kg with light Carbon wheel from Duke ( France)
    The pike is in 160 mm but at the moment it feels OK for steep climbing.
    I'm not an expert in full suspension ( I'm used to singlespeed skinny or fatty ) but I got a blur ltc or nomad c in 26" ( in 26+ now : dirt wizzard 2.75) . I enjoy VPP smoothness but I feel that this sight is more lively and still working very well in "downhill" ( just root, little jump from yerterday first ride flowy singletrack ;-)

    Here a small video from the first ride ( I didn't film in the purpose to make a video but at then end I decided to share with some friends )

    https://youtu.be/2Wu_XCBY1hY

    Regards.

    saw another 2015 a7.1 sight yesterday at a local track/trail

    and was surprised at how different the two were in colour
    mine is more yellow while the other one was more fluro greenish yellow

    bit of a fail for norco quality control

    they also had different rear shock and brake/gear mounting on handle bars
    mine has separate clamp ring for brakes and gear lever and the other was combined on one clamp ring

    Are you certain it was a 2015 a7.1 and not a 2014 a7.2?

    Thanks for the info.
    I assume that weight is for the 7.1 frame kit with a Cane Creek Inline shock - is that correct?
    Also, what size is it?

    Regards.

    Coming from VPP bikes, which do you think climbs better in technical terrain or short punchy type climbs?

    I'm currently on a Santa Cruz 5010C and am not totally happy with the technical climbing, especially in looser conditions ... the rear doesn't have gobs of traction. Also, I sometimes get hung up on rocky or ledgey stuff in slower technical sections.

    I'm going the opposite way, from a Sight to a Bronson, and I much prefer the way the Bronson climbs, especially in punchy sections, I just feel it puts more power down, especially out of the saddle.

    After a LOOONG six month wait, the dealer I ordered my Sight C7.1 from just called to inform me that my bike's finally on the way and I should be able to pick it up a week from this coming Saturday. I'll be sure to post pics as soon as I get her home...


    Totally stoked!!!

    Good to hear, DDDonny!

    Please weight it stock when you can. I weighed my pig yesterday and it sat at 31lbs all stock except the bottle holder and bell. lol

    You know it! I'll post the weight for you as soon as I can. I already had the bike shop pull the tubes and pour in some Orange Sealant, since the ARCH wheelset is already set-up to go tubeless. Also, I had them swap the XX1 trigger for the Grip Shift- you can see it in the pic...

    Sweet! I'm definitely jealous.

    I just saw your Sight c7.1 was awarded Bicycling Magazine's Editor's Choice Award 2015, again.

    If you currently have Rockshox shock, you can reuse the existing hardware. If you have Fox or other shock, the hardware you need is 40 mm x 10mm (top) and 22.2 mm x 10 mm (bottom)

    Hello Norco Sight owner,
    I am seriously considering this bike to replace my Mojo SL, converted to 650b.

    What do you think the climbing ability of this bike? especially compare to Mojo SL.

    FYI, my mojo SL is 25.7 lbs complete with dropper and candy pedals, 1x10, xtr cassette, slx crank, with stan crest 650b wheels, scwalbe nobby nic tires.

    If I get the Sight, I want to build it under 27lbs. thinking to get the frame kit, carbon, medium.

    Basically, I dont want to sacrifice climbing too much, I am hoping Sight can match my Mojo SL in climbing.

    The mojo looks like a sweet bike inter, but I haven't ridden one before, (sorry!!) What I can tell you though is my Sight is a really good climber. One of the guys I ride with I think may have the edge on me with his tech descending but I climb techy stuff he fails on and he has some motocross background, I have none,,,,, just XC background and learned the techy stuff on the go.

    As my bike sits now it's 25.04lbs. That's with the new 2016 Fox 34 150mm/ DPS EVOL shock which together added a couple hundred grams over stock. Of coarse everything else other than stem has been upgraded,, that been said I didn't choose the lightest of everything as I still wanted some durability. My point is building a 27 lb Sight should be easy for you,,,, and at my age and fitness level I'm sure your climbing will be considerably better than mine. Of note: when having a good ride I find myself passing some fit looking riders half my age on the climbs.

    Anyway I love this bike,,, the reviews from just about everyone who owns one or has just road and reviewed one all seem to feel the bike does everything well. There are so many really good bikes out there to choose from these days, the choices are getting tougher.

    Thanks Indebt, really appreciate the input.
    you're right, many good bikes to choose. I am sure sight is good bike, as many owner say so, also some award winning.

    yours is 25 lbs, please kindly share the spec build, if you don't mind. what size?

    I'm 5-6" on a 2014 7.1 medium sight carbon. Fit is great with a 50mm stem. Weighs in just under 27lbs. Can def get it lighter if I wanted. Has the 2015 fox 36 140 fork(actually lighter than the 2014 34 140 fork), industry 9 Enduro wheels with tubeless setup. Stock drivetrain, 50mm Chromag ranger stem and Chromag fubar bars cut to 760mm
