How about the Canuck Bikes

My Norco is feeling left out, however unlikely a lot of Norco's around here, so we can include other Canadian bike makers, like Rocky Mountain, CCM, etc. I'd love to add a Rocky Mountain Sherpa to my collection but they can be a little pricey.....

Here is the Norco as of last Summer:

I was watching "How It's Made" (Discovery Channel) the other day (it's filmed in Montreal), and they were making CCM bikes. I don't have any pics, but this reminded me of that.

Actually we do have other stores in this country you know, and this city has some really good bike shops....

Actually there is a story behind the bike, I work for a courier company, and stuff has to be at our dock by a certain time, and the Norco distributor guy used to get there just under the wire, having missed the last pickup driver for his area. I let him get away with it a few times, then one day I asked about deals on bikes, he said to come see him, so I did, picked up a factory demo, with almost no miles on it, for half the retail price..

There is another depot with a later close time, which I had also told him about, and I think he went there sometimes....
