It's a Norco Rideau 2002. Not a very expensive bicycle but good for getting around town. It was old stock that hadn't sold last year and was just my size. Saved $100 by buying last year's model. Fits right. Also the 2003 Rideau is now 7005 Aluminum, whereas my 2002 is Chromoloy Steel. Feel good about the bicycle and I didn't break the CC limit...LOL The model can be seen at:

Looks nice - I have 3 Norcos now, they're great bikes. Are you putting racks, fenders, etc. on it?

I had them put fenders and a rear rack on it before I left the shop with it. Up here on the "Wet Coast" fenders are a must. And a rack is essential for my commuting needs.

It's a nice bike..... I'm glad they included a suspension seatpost. Here's a question.
If you got the 2002 version. Why did you get the 2003?

I bought the 2002 year's model. Saved money and got a steel frame. I didn't buy the 2003 model.
