What is a drive train?
The drive train on your bike is the system that moves you forward. Pushing on your pedals turns the chain, which in turn moves your tires forward. There are many moving parts that contribute to it, but that is basically what it boils down to.
Although Wednesday was hot, and the smoke that had rolled in at dinner time was thick I still wanted to get out on my bike.
Since the first ride in Fish Creek had been early on in my riding season, I wanted to get back here and check out more trails. I headed over to the Votier’s Flat parking lot and started putting my gear on.
So this is going to be my ride for the summer. Since I was a teenager and saw my first Norco bike in a magazine I have always wanted one just like it. It had to be a Norco hardtail with a Rock Shox front fork. Well now that I am an adult I finally have it!
I scoured Kijiji (the Canuck version of Craigslist) until I found just what I was looking for. The bike had been owned by a mom who was going to use it to ride with her kids. Her kids had other ideas, mainly motocross. So it had only been ridden a handful of times and only on paved paths and streets. It was basically brand new.
I will be riding a 2014 Norco Charger 7.3. It has a mixed Shimano drivetrain and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. The fork is a Rock Shox XC 30 TK coil with 100mm of travel.
After my first ride on the trails in North Glenmore Park I am hooked. I can’t wait to ride the hell out of this bike!
