    Whistler Mountain Bike Reviews the Norco Fluid 7.2

    September 4, 2014

    Norco Fluid 7.2 Whistler MTB Review Neatly stashed away in the Norco line up is the Fluid series. With 120mm of travel, the Fluid falls right in the trail riding segment. Available in either 29″ (9 series) or 27.5″ (7 series) with geometry specific to each wheel size, the Fluid is meant to be ridden hard and put away wet. The Fluid features a trail tuned version of Norco’s A.R.T suspension design, a tapered headtube and some nice and short rear stays (425mm), all of which add up together to make this a super fun trail bike. The 7.2 comes with a solid, durable spec that has been well thought out to bring it in under the $2000 marker. The suspension is a matched Rockshox duo, with a XC30 120mm fork up front with a 9mm axle and a Monarch R for the rear. Being the R model, it only has rebound adjustment. Formula DC hubs are laced to WTB SX 19 rims and are wrapped with Continental X-King 2.4 tires. Gears are Shimano Deore 10 speed shifters & derailleurs, and braking is provided by Avid DB 1’s with 160mm rotors. Read More at whistlermountainbike.com
