Figured it was time to post a pic of my ride, even if it's not really weight weenie worthy... I've been around the forum for a long time having had a number of light steel and dual suspension MTBs in the past.

Anyways here is my Norco CRR SL - I got the frame set cheap, and built it up to replace my old 2008 Giant TCR Alliance.


Frame: Norco CRR SL
Fork: Norco CRR SL
hanger: Alloy
Headset: Factory
Seatpost clamp: Ritchey Post Mount
Seatpost: Integrated Post
Seat: Fizik Gobi XM
Stem: Ritchey Comp
Bar: Ritchey Comp
Bartape: Black Cork Tape
bottle cages: Jet Black x 2
Brakes: Ultegra 6700
Front derailleur: Ultegra 6700
Rear derailleur: Dura-Ace 7800
Crankset: Ultegra 6700 - 53/39
Chain: Ultegra
Shifters: Ultegra 6700
Cassette: Ultegra 6700 12/28 (soon to be 11/25)
Wheels: Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL - Tubular
Tires: Conti Spinters (thanks Tinia Pedis)
Pedals: 105
Computer mounts: K-Edge Garmin Mount

Next on the list is a set of HED C2 Tubular rims laced to a powertap (training wheel set) and who knows from there... It might not be the lightest but it's comfortable and rides well; also climbs alot better then my old TCR.

Very nice, always cool to see something new. Norco is a Canadian brand is it not?

Go for the C2 wheels, they rock (not that I'm biased or anything). Cheers!

Thanks, yeah Norco is the same Canadian brand quite popular in MTB circles; to be honest I wouldn't be suppressed if this were one of the only Norco roadies in Aus - I've never seen one before, nor has anyone I know. It's a great bike though!

I think I just love the idea of having a second wheelset; even better if I can manage a powertap into the build budget :-)

My first road bike was a Norco. Lots of fun, but I didn't realized that it was a bit flexy until I moved on to a higher-end carbon frame. My Norco was pretty entry level.
