    New Bike.. need some advice

    Picked up the 06 Norco Rival.

    So far i've noticed a couple issues that i'm unsure about.

    First, the front Disk Brakes rub on the inside. Not a lot but enogh so that you can hear it. Will this go away juring the break in of the bike or should I have them fix that.

    Second. The front shocks. The left Shock I can stiffen till I can't turn it anymore ( Tight Side ) and the right side doesn't stop turning.. should this be something I should bring to their attention as well.

    here are some details of the bike

    Any help would be great as I'm taking the bike back next week to have them go over it one more time.

    I picked up the bike last night and have put 4 hours of riding in so far.


    Thanks for any advice

    If you hear rubbing, the pads are wearing. Go to Hayes' web site and download the install instructions for the MX-2. It explains the simple procedure for centering the rotor between the calipers. As far as the shock, I'd go to Marzocchi's web site and download the manual if you don't have one.

    The brake rubbing is common on new bikes. You may find there's not ideal stopping either...both of these issues will clear up once broken in. To speed up the break-in period, go down a few moderate hills with the brakes on steady. Don't brake hard and light, just smooth.
