    Norco Owners

    Fellow Norco owners,

    I see that there is no Norco Owners forum. I would like to see us get one, but for the meantime I would like to start this thread to showcase and discuss our rides. I am looking forward to seeing all of your rides. I am awaiting the arrival of my new 2010 CRR 1 sometime this coming week and will post actual pics and a specs list once I put it together. But for now I think this would make a good template:

    No pics yet, just got it. I was originally looking at the Specialized Roubaix Elite, but when I took a ride on the Norco and compared pricing and equipment, it was a no brainer. Never did ride the Roubaix though, took out the equivalent Secteur instead. I talked for quite a while with a Norco mechanic during my purchase and he helped me get over the sticker shock hump. Still feeling it though. If I'm on this bike in 4-5 years it will seem like a bargain. Commute 230kms a week and then do 1 longer ride on the weekend mid May to end of October, so definitely will be putting the mileage on. That's what sold me on the bike, it was so comfy and I really need the gear range I got with the Apex. There's almost 2 kms of 6% grade waiting for me at the end of the day. Need to know I'm going to make it home.

    Pretty happy with the way it was specced, but I had the shop swap out the derailleur for the medium cage, and the cassette for the 32 tooth. I'll be looking at better rubber, and changing the bar tape to black. Yellow hoods will stay for now, but they may go down the line. Pretty hard to keep them clean and I'm really not a flashy guy.

    Picked up a 2008 Norco CRD Four on Kijiji for $100 CDN fixed up a few things (cables, brakes, chain, tubes etc...). Just getting into road bikes as a secondary sport for some fun and maintaining fitness.
