    Norco 2007 models!!!

    WOW! There lookin good this year! I love Norco bikes and now I love them even more. The 07 models are awesome. Check out the rampage: http://www.norco.com/2007bikes/Mount...view=1&deets=1

    What do you think of this bike? What do you love about it and what do you hate about it?

    Wow - 72-degree head angles on the XC bikes! That is pretty steep. I bet they rail on tight singletrack...

    I was never really impressed by Norco. They did improve the rampage though.

    2 days ago I've been at lbs where they only sell norco. Great specials on 2006 models, all prices went down by 400 - 800$.

    I'm not impressed by Norco either, mostly because all of them need to be upgraded after purchase.

    I really like the new Sasquatch. Great component spec vs price IMHO.

    All stock low to mid range bikes do. Norco is not exception.

    In fact if I remember right they have been touted to have one of the best out of the box dh bikes available.

    I don't like norco, not a fan of interupted seatposts anymore and ... well...not sure I find them kind of ugly...but don't give them crap for using similar business practices to every other company on the market.

    Not too shabby...I like the paint job on the Atomic! They're easily better than last years though.

    Iam guessing that Norco is the biggest, most popular brand of bikes in canada, and is known world wide as a very popular brand of bikes, but yet it seems like in here alot of poeple dislike Norco's. Why is that? Explain why you don't like Norco's compared to other brands!

    Norco the most popular in Canada? They are a Canadian company, and they do crank out a lot of bikes, but I see more Specialized and Santa Cruz bikes on the trail than anything else.

    XC or freeride? I see alot more Norco freeride bikes than specialized or santa cruz freeride bikes! Now XC is different. Norco is not a really popular name when it comes XC. Thats the only thing I don't like about this fourm is that most people do XC. I really dislike XC and think freeriding is way more fun! But thats just me!

    I really like the norco XC bikes this year. I think they really expanded their choices. Big fan of the new EXC HT one.
