    Bike Not Intended for Off Road Use sticker.....

    i have never owned a Norco before i bought my Torrent, i think it is a great bike but how the h-ll can a mountain bike have a sticker on it that says "not intended for off road use". I called Norco and they acknowledged it and the rep said she agreed it was ridiculous but WTF????

    Does it have suntour forks on it? Seen those with that sticker.

    And I was looking at a torrent, that concerns me now though. Only see that sticker on Walmart bikes.

    it isn't only on the torrent it is due to insurance or something. i don't know how many of their bikes it is on. seems really odd.

    no the fork is a rock shox.

    Damn cause I ha e a hard time buying mountain bike that the warranty doesn't cover "off road use"

    Guess I'm stuck waiting for more b+ options to come out that I can actually afford.

    Does it have an EN 14766 or EN 14781 sticker on it? (Usually near the bottom bracket or seat tube). If it does have one, which number does it call out? "EN 14781" means it's tested to a road standard of EN tests..."EN 14766" means it's tested to a mountain bike standard of tests. FWIW, the mountain bike standards aren't always more challenging than the road.

    If it was tested to either of these standards, and it more than likely was, I wouldn't worry about the safety of the bike. If it was tested to the wrong standard by mistake (14781), I can see where the sticker would be a way to cover any liability issues. "Not for off road use" is a weird sticker to put on a mountain bike!
