    One of his cons was 2.6 snug on the drive side chain stay, I just checked mine and not the case. I think the bike he reviewed the wheel wasnt properly dished, which isnt uncommon on machine built wheels

    Thats great to hear!

    Sad it seems a bike has to cost some 5k plus to be of interest to the press. Maybe i message some mags and ask to review the Fluid!

    I hear Fluid is heavy. Is it because of the "cheap" component speck or is the alloy frame heavier than other frames in the category (not price category but intended use )

    The frame isn't light and neither are the components.


    It pedals a lot lighter than it weighs. Norco prioritized durability in components over weight, since you can only pick two of strong/cheap/light
