My Ride For The Summer

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!
