Cheers!!

Was that the guy who cracked it at the Bear enduro? Too bad if it was but I'm sure Norco sorted him out.

yes , PJ was the one that brought up potential issue with the generation of frame , they did sort him out with no issues .

Super nice Norco!

I am sure you'll have tons of fun with it.

And come on guys, too much nitpicking.

It is NEW BIKE DAY for him, don't spoil it with the pre-x-mas geekery ;-)

Well said.

Nice ride King. Boom mentioned the gold dials on the fork. Can you elaborate?

Vorsprung cartridge. Shops in Whistler. Gets rid of the CTD and makes the fork feel much better. The link below can explain better.

Steve was awesome to deal with, rebuilt, serviced fork with the upgrade and serviced my rear shock with same day service. Highly recommend him.

i think the warden is going to be tough sell against the current flock of (nearly similarly priced) carbon wonder bikes.

Are you going to do your cranks too?

I did a set some years ago and they turned out rather nice.

I agree. It should be priced about $500 less for the frameset to make it more competitive. If it was handmade in B.C. it might be a different story.

Just rebuilt my entire bike because WINTER.

I built up new wheels (all silver), rebuilt post, polished link plates, some new hardware, bearings were surprisingly good still, new brake lever body, new meats, cables and housing. Got some ceramic bearings coming for the front hub.

These Adhoc's please me. In a sea of carbon bikes with no soul it makes me happy to see these bikes are still alive and well.

They're kind of like an ugly woman with a good personality that you learn to love, especially after you first ride her.

Did I just go there?
