anybody know what size the derailleur hanger screw for a 2014 is? 28.5mm 33.5mm or a 26mm?

whats the general consensus on the 27.5 non hsp aurums?

I like the shorter reach, and also the shorter chainstays on the smalls and mediums, hard to find any dh bikes with under 440 stays and 650 wheels. Are these bikes relatively on the more playful side compared to something like a V10?

Also any well known failure points or maintenance issues? theres a 2016 c7.2 near me that I want to check out but I'd like to know where to look for issues.

thanks

hi, i have a 2016 c7.2, its a great bike, jumps great as its very well balanced in the air, its probably not as fast as the latest 29er dh bikes but i dont race so i'm not bothered by that, although i must say it does better than some of the latest bikes i have freindly raced at the bike parks if you know what i mean, its carbon so look out for any cracks, saying that the frame is very strong and it has a alloy rear end, i have fitted progressive fork and shock springs, had an andreani damper upgrade to the charger damper that was a massive improvement over the stock charger damper, the bike corners well, i swapped the brakes to shimano saint as i didnt like the guide brakes, i also always us magic mary tyres on mine, ,i recently replaced all the bearings and it is so smooth, so bear that in mind when buying second hand as decent bearings cost a bit. i can recommend you get one if you find a well looked after one, cheers

Hi, yea, im not hearing much on this, i think Norco will continue with the current aluminium unit for the resort rental fleets.
Look for the "new " aurum, to be similar to the new range, just with a different shock link.
I cant see Norco coming out with a different frame just for the Aurum, when the Range is just as capable as the Aurum.

Hello everyone.

I recently purchased a Norco Aurum HSP C framekit 2021 when I was on holiday at my home country (The Netherlands).
Now I made a huge mistake and didn't unpack it, as it was nicely wrapped etc. So I kept it in the original wrapping and box, as I thought this would be better when taking the frame back with me on the plane.
I ordered a Norco Aurum HSP 29" M/L frame.
When I came back to the country I live/work for the last few years (Singapore), I unpacked it removed the wrapping I noticed the Dutch LBS delivered me the Norco Aurum HSP 27.5" M/L Frame.
Singapore doesn't have any local Noro Dealer.

So now my question comes. Can I run this frame with as a mullet setup?
I have an Ohlins DH38M1 (which can run 27.5 and 29).

I did search the internet, but I haven't seen anyone running this setup.
The reason I am asking, I bought this frame to go racing.
I know 29" wheels are faster rolling over stuff then 27.5".

Or you guys suggest to just run it as a 27.5" front and rear.

For racing only 29 nowadays. 27.5 nowadays is just for fun, because they are more playful and good for newbies since they are easier to turn around. If I were you I would send it to get what I ordered using DHL plane package.

Yeah I know 29 is where the racing is at, 27.5 is to party/freeride.
But I only not sure if Norco will let me switch the frame. I haven't used the frame yet, as I am gathering parts still.
I did send Norco customer service an email. Just waiting for a reply.

I was thinking of a possible other solution. Hence the mullet setup question. Thanks for the feedback though.
