Never heard or seen a broken one yet, its always worth having a close look at a second hand frame though unless you know the history of the bike

Hello there fellow Norco riders Smile
I have a question about Aurum 6.2 (2015) - can 27.5 fit there, like, normally? Or it's not even an option? I can install fork that supports both 26 and 27.5 wheels, but what'll be with rear one? Smile

Hi, sorry, no the 6.2 is 26" only, you could run 27.5 fork in front, but not a 27.5 wheel on the back.

Hello to all Norco Aurum riders - my first time posting here.

I recently bought a 2016 Norco Aurum C7.2 for Whistler this year and it was just amazing how stable it is at high speed and I really enjoyed my park days even more at the age of 56 years old. Instead of keeping it in the garage till next year when the bike park opens again, I was wondering if i could change the 7 speed cassette to a 10 or 11 speed cassette so I could at least pedal a little around the local trails. Can I use Shimano or I have to use SRAM cassette? Do I need to change the deraileur, chain and shifter as well? I am lost but thought it would be a great winter project to undertake. Any recommendation or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Don't bother. They are full planted DH rigs, not meant for pedalling. They're designed for sending it down the steepest and gnarliest trails you can find and then taking the chairlift back to the top, keep it that way!

Hey guys,

Recently bought a 2021 aurum a1 and an struggling with the brake hose and gear cables down near the bottom bracket. They pull tight under 70% compression and the remaining 20% will pull more cable through. Once the bike unloads over a jump or something it will push the excess cable into the chainring and spokes.

Has anyone come up with any solution? So far I have re-routed the rear brake hose to the outside of the chainstay, but can't work out a good path for the gear cable.

Cheers,
Mick
