    Drop

    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?

    Good job! yeah

    I got one-it is pretty good. I had millions of crank problems (cause of sqare heads or whatever) so I got a ISIS Giga-its beautiful. Yeah the shocks are great and everything too. I'm only 14 , 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.

    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 had posted earlier that I was gonna get an 05 Atomik. Well, I changed my mind. (Or my parent's at least!)

    ... and if we just ... 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 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!

    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.

    Thanks man.

    When I got it i figured i'd never have to do anything to it...It was perfect.
    But...
    Upgradeitis is a serious illness and should be treated with lots of burrly anodized bits of aluminum.

    Here is the list soooo far.

    '04 888r
    Push'ed Vanilla RC Race Works
    Dangerboy levers and stem
    RaceFace Evolve DH crank and BB
    E.thirteen DRS chainguide
    Easton Cully pedals
    Gazza 2.6 on the front
    Kinetics 2.6 on the rear

    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.

    i have added sherman forks, D321 wheels laced to an xt and formula hub, an E13 DRS, a truvativ giga pipe, diablos handlebar, stem and headset, and finally juicy 5's



    now all i have to do is wait for the damn snow to melt and i can ride!!!

    Got my Norco Six straight from Jason at Feed the Habit. It was used, but it cost me $1800 free of shipping and his crew fixed it up so it looks and runs more or less perfectly. The bike is amazing, but I wish they put on 2.5 inch tires instead of the 2.3's so that I wouldn't have had to buy them myself. They also should have given the option of the 66RC instead of the VF. The VF is a good fork, but if you're gonna offer an upgrade, offer something much better than what it's replacing so people will buy it. I'm still very happy though. Here's my baby:

    New Six One

    Just went and bought myself a new 2006 Six One, I was looking at the Shore pretty close, but the Six fits my riding a little more.
    I did upgrade the Six's rear shock to the DHX 5, and put the Mavic Deetrack wheels on it. I should have it by Wed.

    Right now I ride hard tail, KONA Hoss, and a Specialized Big Hit.

    I am riding a Fluid 3.0 and have actually been having some issues that I wonder if can be fixed. As you can see from the pic I put a float rl on it and it raked out the rear linkage and causes nasty chain suck into the bottom bracket. The pooper is I love how this thing rides and don't want to change it back to how it was. Anyone have any suggestions? Can I upgrade the rear linkage to properly accept a longer eye-to-eye rear shock? From the pics I am seeing the rear linkages look very similar between all of the models. I recently upgraded to an ultegra rear deraileur, ultegra cassette, and blackspire chainrings up front and that didn't help a bit. I just don't want to give up the travel or the granny gear

    My Six One is here!



    I have had it for several weeks now, having a blast. I put a new seat on it so if anybody wants my stock telescoper with I-Beam SDG seat I'll sell it. The post does not fit my Bighit or Kona, it is 30.0.

    Great Bike.

    Nice bike dude!!! how much does it weights?

    I have a Six 2005 and I love it, it tips the scale on the 41lb, though.

    Given that all the Norco guys are in here, I have some questions for you guys:

    I managed to break the derailleur hanger and lost half of it. I live in Mexico and there’s only one Norco distributor in the country. He´s several hangers lying around but he doesn’t know which one is for the Six 2005. I think I could recognize it if I look at it, but is better to be sure. So here are the questions.

    Which hanger does the 2005 Six use? Is it shared by other Norco bikes? Is it the same as the Six 2006 (I doubt it due to the TA on the 2005)? Hope you can help me guys, I’m missing the summer rides due to this situation.

    Thanks,

    Still Loving it!

    The bike weighs somewhere around 38 lbs.

    Bought it at Clark's Cycle in Bellingham, I upgraded to MAVIC Detrax rims and the DHX 5 rear shock. Retail is $2700 with upgrades $3100

    Just got my first serous mountain bike. '06 Norco Storm. I got a sweet deal on it because it has a minor scratch (it was a floor model) and it's getting to the end of the model year. So far I love the bike; It ain't no fancy FS but it suits my needs.

    Hey all norco riders!

    I am going to purchase a 2007 Norco Shore 3 soon. I can't believe how they've upgraded the bike so much (fork, wheels, etc) and kept the same price... sweet!!

    What everyone's opinions on the 2007 Norco Shore 3??

    Cheers,
    Laurence

    XC all the way!

    I just started riding my 1996 Norco Team Issue again after a 7 year hiatus due to getting married and having 2 kids! Still feels real after all this time!

    Norco Team Issue

    Mine is a 17" frame. I actually bought the frame and then built it up from there. Previously I used to own a 96 Kona Kiluea which I had also "tweaked". It was actually lighter than my Team Issue but it did not climb nor handle as well. The Team Issue seems to be tighter feeling with more precision.

    Norco Six

    Does anyone know how much the 07 Norco six frame weighs? I was also wondering if the head angle and suspension characteristics would be negatively affected by a slightly longer shock stroke in the back. Any comments would be appreciated, thanks.

    I just finished rebuilding an old Sasquatch (full rigid) at the shop... it was actually destined for the bin until I pointed out the frame was double butted chromoly and really in excellent shape. When did the Sasquatch come equipped with Cantis anyways?

    My guess was that it was a very late 80's model and more likely dates to the early nineties.

    We just received an Atomik and are just waiting for a new rear hangar so we can get this monster up and rolling. The best part of this is that we'll be giving this bike away to some really lucky kid.

    I'm from edmonton, alberta and Norco hardtails are wildly popular around teens just getting serious about riding. Almost all of my friends ride their north shore hardtail line (Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Manik etc.) I was riding my 04 bigfoot until i bought a Big Hit last year. I still ride my Norco though because its so dam fun to ride. They put out a good product and are popular here in canada, how do the sell in the states?

    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.

    http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/1240025/


    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    MY Build weighs 42lbs with lot's of places I could go lighter.

    I believe most of Norcos frames are made by Giant in their frame factory in Taiwan. I've also heard that Giant makes almost half of all the worlds bikes in this factory, including their own.

    Man, what I'd have given for a bike like that, at that age!!

    P.S. They didn't even have Bigwheels when I was that age.

    Go's up real nice. It's not the lightest bike but honestly I don't notice it on the trails. Most of the riding I do requires some uphill and that's why I got it. I do put it on a chairlift but only like once every two weeks or so. Rear travel is adjustable also which makes trail riding a little easier and downhilling a little more plush. Great bike for under 2G's (Can)taxes in!

    how much does it weigh?
    Can't remember what the weight it. They told me when I bought it. Next time I bring it too the shop I will weigh it. Low 30's I think

    I could be classed as a Norco rider.

    What I have is a 2005 125 frame built onto my old Gt parts, so yeah I am a Norco rider.

    I rode a Norco Rampage full rigid for years, In 06 I bought a Norco Fluid 2. Love it! Tried a few other bikes before I bought it and am happy with my Fluid.

    I attached a photo of my new XC race bike, a Norco Faze 2. I was between this and a much more expensive Yeti ASR-SLC, but the local shop gave me a killer deal and let me test ride it for a weekend. I switched out a SRAM 990 11-32 cassette and I have some SRAM x.0 twist shifters coming along with a x.9 derailuer from my other bike. The WTB Shadow saddle is a bit too roadie like so I will probably swap it out for a Rocket. I'm also planning on doing a conversion from the QR skewers to 9/10mm thru axles for some extra rigidity.
    The bike's handling is incredible compared to my twitchy Raleigh hardtail. The downhill/freeride influence from the company really shows. I've left the bike in the 4.5" travel setting and have seen no reason to drop down to the 3.8" setting. The Fox RP23 pairs really well with this suspension. With propedal set to 2 it climbs really well and still absorbs the hard hits. With propedal on 3 it climbs like a hardtail.
    Right now it's around 28 pounds. I imagine I'll eventually get it down to 25 and call it good.

    I'm interested to know the weight of the '08 Rampage (I think the '07 is around 17kg or 37lb).

    I'm looking to buy the '08 and hoping it's maybe more around the 35lb mark.

    Mmmm Norco Rampage! Pitty I can't buy one just yet.
    Would a Small size be suitable for a 5ft7 lady?

    norco rampage

    I have a Sasquatch, practically same frame, and I got a small and I'm 5'11. at your size, you'd be sized at a small; I did it just cuz these bike handle way better SMALLER. Don't try to pedal it uphill unless you're ready to walk, too, they just dont perform going uphill(I only DJ and urban mine, thats how its set up. They are good all around FR/DJ even street park(again, if the frame is a small.)

    Hey thanks for that. After more discussions with the lbs I ended up going for an STP0 instead (haven't got it yet but it's secured with a sdeposit).
    I figured that as much as I liked the Rampage it would have been heavier than I wanted & probably way stronger than I needed too. The STP 0 has a decent spec on it, it's lighter and even though it's a DJ rig I reckon it would make a great trail bike for anything up to light DH, especially with a Pike on the front instead of the Argyle.

    bike has the stock DHX shock on the back but with a ti coil (had from previous bike) and my trusty 06 66RC2X. Fork is running with just one coil to save weight and give better small bump compliance. I made the decals at work one day when I had some spare time.

    I've got a proper chain guide on the bike now and some thicker tires (that nokion was flatting far to often) so the weight went up a little but but I think I'm still sub 37.

    I'm not canadian, but just got a fluid 1.0, the 4th norco I've owned.

    they are the most natural feeling bikes out there, I think.

    I just got a Norco Katmandu plus a CCM... it won't be seeing much off road action save for the multi use trails.

    If ANYONE owns an 07 or 08 Norco Hardtail in a Size Small (Geo is the same on both years) please let me know how much clearance there is between the pedal (when straight) and the front tire (when turned so it is closest to the pedal) and that will allow me to determine weather or not I will have enough foot room.

    Because I want to buy a 2007 or 2008 Rampage or Manik in a Small but I'm worried about my feet rubbing.
    Also, does anyone own either of these bikes? Do they go good Downhill and Freeriding? Are they Strong?

    I'm rockin my '04 Rampage... I have a question for any that know off the top of their head. I am getting ready to put an MRP single ring guide system on and can't remember my bottom bracket shell width. I believe its 68mm, if any one knows and can tell me that would be great so I don't have to pull off the cranks and measure.

    Peace

    I have several Norco's in quiver. The company has been kind to my house hold over the years. They sponsored my wife for two, and now sponsor one of our roommates.

    Norco bikes in the house during the past couple of years:
    2008 Norco Faze 1.0
    2007 Norco Faze, Factory Team spec.
    2007 Norco EXC 1.0, Factory Team spec. (Gold medal winning bike at 2007 panam games)
    2006 Norco EXC FS 1.0 Factory Team spec. (probably the best bike ever, I have put 10 000km on this bike, and will probably put another 10 000km on it.)
    2006 Norco EXC HT, Factory Team spec.
    1996 Norco Torrent (a sweet handling old school steel framed bike)

    Some people think that Norcos are a poor man's Specialized...
    I say that Norcos are bikes made to face harsh reality... and survive.



    And, I'm looking to build a Manifesto as my training bike.

    I ride a Norco racing bike - great, smooth ride, relatively cheap. Had a few problems but it's still going six years later

    Not mine, but exact same.

    I used to be mainly a road rider back in the day when I was around 18 years old. Got into an accident on it, haven't rode since.

    So I was looking into doing some cross country riding. Just so happens my fiance's mom had a bike in her storage she hasn't used. I got a pretty mint condition 1999 Norco Scrambler with a 22" frame. She's my same height at 6 foot 1. Don't know much about bikes but looking forward to riding it on some light trails. Hope it's a good starter bike.

    I had a '05 Custom Torrent in 2006:

    Upgraded to a '07 Custom Shore last year :

    I have had this '98 Rampage beauty for about 3 years now and you'll have to pry it from my cold dead hands:

    I am now working on a Norco 2009 LT1 Custom Build, so far I have:
    2010 Noir Tango Cranks
    2010 990 Tango Cassette
    2010 XO Tango Shifters
    Mango Chris King Head Set
    Magura Carbon Louise BAT's
    Thompson Elite Seat Post
    Crank Brothers Orange Split QR Seat Clamp
    White Truvativ AKA Stem
    Orange Lizard Skins Charger Grips
    Black Hope Pro II Hubs
    White Syncros DP25 Rims

    I am just mulling over handlebars, spokes and fork right now. I think I'm going with DT Super Comp spokes, Race Face Sixc bar, the fork is the big question mark.
    I can't wait until all these goodies arrive
    When I am all done I will name it the orange chocolate creamsicle bike.

    I am just mulling over handlebars, spokes and fork right now. I think I'm going with DT Super Comp spokes, Race Face Sixc bar, the fork is the big question mark.
    I can't wait until all these goodies arrive
    When I am all done I will name it the orange chocolate creamsicle bike.
    Now that's serious build.
    Make sure you post the photos here when you're done! )

    Older Team DH skibike

    I finally put her on ski's, and man I can't wait for the snow
    I took a spare rear end and narrowed it and reduced the dropouts to fit a 10X135 ski mount. So the bike has a rear end for the ski and one for the wheel.

    Those pegs are cheap old pedals completely gutted, even the bearing races, the bearing cups fit nicely over an isis BB and are through bolted with a 12inch long 12mm grade 8 bolt to an FSA Platinum DH BB. The platforms are locked flat to each other but will float and roll together as one under your feet....

    Hope the pics work I haven't done this in awhile LOL

    Just grabbed a couple Norcos. Couldn't be happier.

    2009 fluid 3(upgraded wheels, front rotor to 8") and a 2010 crr 1(road race).

    any chance you can post a pic of the CRR 1? I been doing some research on a new road bike and that was one of the one's I was looking at.

    I now ride (as of last week) a NORCO Faze 1.

    There's 3 changes on my bike from the stock trim...
    - Marzocchi Marathon LR (120mm) FORK
    - Marzocchi Roco Air LO DC SHOCK
    - Crank Brothers Candy SL Pedals

    Here are some pics...













    I've gotta say, I love this thing.
    I paid less than $1500 (less the pedals which I already had), and it only had a handful of short rides on it. It's the lightest bike I've ever owned, having primarily a Dirt Jump, Free Ride, Downhill back ground, but it still feels very solid and the travel is incredibly plush.

    I'll be back to post another review after a few more rides.

    Brand New Norco Six!

    Just sold my Cdle Prophet and bought my new Six from my lbs.... It was sitting there since 2009(!!) and was on sale at a third of its original price! I kept some parts from my Prophet and transfered them on my new ride. So far i swaped the Sram X7 rear der for X0, Juicy 3 for Elixir, stock pedals for Truvativ Holzfeller and ditched the front der to add an E-thirteen chain guide.... Still a bit of snow on the ground but i'll have my first real trail ride this morning.

    I'm loving it!!! So much different than my Prophet.... Yes it's heavier but i prefer the geometry of the Six and the suspension travel. This machine is so much stiffer and now when i pedal, no more frame flex (i'm 6'/ 200 lbs). I still can climb hills but for going down, it's gonna be so much fun now!
