    It's bit wider than the AM (free) which had about a 1.37:1 high:low range, vs. the 1.6:1 of yours.

    The ASC had a slightly close range and was fixed gear, while the AC was much closer with roughly 7% steps, and freewheel.

    For Flatland city or island riding, I still ride my AC once in a while, and would love to see SA Taiwan bring out a 3s with jumps in the 10$ range (maybe as wide as 15%) but no wider.

    It is a canadian company based in Vancouver, BC. They are known for their mountain bikes. However, in recent years their road bikes and hybrids are getting some recognition.

    I also own one of their road bikes and have nothing bad to a say about either one.

    Norco has been in the bicycle business for a long time... probably better known in Canada than the U.S. and they were the importer for Nishiki in Canada for decades and offered comparable models with Norco branding.

    They are also heavily involved in mtb racing and make some nice road and touring bicycles.

    Here's my latest commuter. Finished it up a couple of weeks ago with help from a friend, and now fine tuning it.

    I don't think any bikes sold in the US carried the name Norco. The few I've seen were probably brought down by the individual owners.

    This is my new commuter -a 56cm Soma Double Cross Graphite. The frame arrived a few weeks ago, and then was mostly built using parts from my old bike (wheelset, drivetrain, brifters, handlebar & tape, saddle, bottle cage) + some new parts: seatpost & clamp, touring pedals and brakes (Tektro AL926 mini-V). This frame is a bit longer than my old one so I have to switch to shorter stem. I have not had the chance to weight the bike, but it feels significantly lighter than my alloy Felt QX75 bike, the ride is much smoother, steadier, and faster pick-up on any given terrain. Overall I'm impressed and overjoyed with this built, thanks to Soma!! Rack and fenders are in the pipeline, definitely not in a too far future.
    Sorry for the low quality image, it was taken using a tablet.

    Norco has been in business for 50 years and has produced and imported bicycles for the North American market... they are a household name here.

    My Extrabike is based on a Norco Katmandu...

    On mornings when my Surly Cross Check isn't ready (like today, because it's raining and my front fender is broken), I usually take this as my back-up bike. It's a 2003 Trek 7200 comfort bike, but I think the only remaining original part is the front wheel. The fork is a Surly Instigator, and it's set up 1x8 with a bar-end shifter. The seat is a brooks B17. My wife bought it for me new 11 years ago, and it was the first bike I used for commuting. It's getting cooler with age!

    I have submitted my numbers for the cause but never gone out of my way to ride any more than usual. My wife is participating for the first time and in it to win.

    Here's my hoopty. It's a Bridgestone MB-4 21" size. I bought it for $40 and it's my most used, favorite bike. The rear wald baskets are one of the best investments. I usually bring about a half cart of groceries bungee netted to the back and the front panniers are for any "overflow" items. It gets pretty wobbly when it's fully loaded with groceries, but it's a really good way to haul stuff without getting into cargo bike territory.

    My old '88 Bianchi. powdercoated and upgraded to 7speed around 1992. Started commuting a few months ago so bought new tires, seat, lights, cell phone holder, and replaced the 12-24 freewheel with the 13-28 freewheel from my Fat Chance. It helps this old man get up the hills! Also pirated the Deore XT pedals from the mtn bike for now. It had Look pedals before but I don't like the cleats for the stairs at the Metrolink.
