Ha ha, thanks guys! Locally (Victoria, BC) they are pretty common. We also have quite a few Argon 18 bikes here. By far the most popular Canadian brand though is Cervelo. Still, the most common bikes on the road are the big American makers (Trek, Giant, Cannondale, Specialized).

Our top pro team (Symmetrics) is sponsored by Norco, and I think that has had some effect in popularising the bike. Prior to Symmetrics I think a lot of people looked at Norco as really a second-tier producer.

To be honest, my bike is very light, but it is not terribly stiff. A lot of the Symmetrics guys were apparently riding the aluminium version. Mine is a 2005. And I think the more recent CRR's are a little chunkier and stiffer.

Here is my new "race" bike. I just built it a few days ago. Had it on the trainer a couple of times but today will be it's first outside ride. Tomorrow will be it's first race.

Nice, I almost bought that frame, but couldn't pass up the deal on mine. Wish I had now though.

Looks good. Racing Hocking tomorrow? I'm just going to go to Reily, where it's flatter.

Yup, I'll be suffering at Hocking tomorrow. I kind of wish I hadn't signed up for it. It is supposed to be 67 degrees and dry here tomorrow.

Thanks, yours is very nice as well. I do have some more black on the way for mine, zero gravity ti brakes. I may be replacing the grey centaur shifters with some carbon chorus as well. I just can't justify getting rid of the centaur rear derailleur though. It does a great job and is only a few grams heavier than a chorus.

Yeah, noticed that. I'll try to get a better picture of it later on.

I just got my new TT/Tri rig set up, also. I need to take better pictures of it outside but these will have to do for now. I mounted the Profile T2 bars "upside down" underneath the base bar for more drop. I've got some more fiddling to do but I'm very happy so far.
