U need to pay labour urself first. After u have taken the old triangle out, u ll have to cut in half and take a picture of it and send it to Norco. They will send u a cheque for the cost of labour.

Dude....that is completely wrong. Norco pays for an hour of labour to do the frame swap, assuming the bike's serial number is part of the recalled ones. They pay the shop directly, not you. The shop sends the photo of the frame, not you. It should only take 45 minutes to do a front triangle swap. Personally, I think Norco should pay for all of the frame swap if it does take more than an hour.

Bring it to where you bought the frame to get the free labour hour. If they hassle you, email Norco and they will take care of the douchey shop.

Yeah...I know I am right. In 2009 I have cracked two frames, a 2009 Aline and a 2009 Team DH. I didn't have to spend a dime either time. The Norco dealer (where my bike came from) took a photo and sent the cracked frames back to Norco. New frame within a week, excellent customer service.

Maybe things are different in Asia, but in BC thats how shit rolls.

I finally got my frame the other day. Whatever you do if your in the collingwood area don't take your bike to skis and bikes there jokers. They striped my crank bolt heads then told me they were like that and would have to charge 2 to 3 hours to take them out. Long story short I'm now doing it my self over the off season.

You're not the first one I have heard that from, a friend of mine had the same thing happen to him in the Whistler shop. What you need to do it make a stink and tell them how it is and whats going to be done or they will take you for all your worth...Apparently not many honest people work at bike shops...Disapointing!

Ther are a lot of us good guys that work at them too, as for the stripped crank bolts, just drill them out with a 7mm bit and grab an easyout it will take about 30 minutes and its good to go.

If you live in the UK dont go to "Spokes Cycles" they made me wait 4 months for the new frame and then they asked me to pay for the frame swap. I contacted Norco and they said that I should not have to pay but to get my bike back I payed them and I did not get my money back for more than 5 months. I am very disappointed from the customer service of Spokes cycles and beware they dont do their work. If you need a Norco dealer for a frame swap or any other problem dont use Spokes. Norco has no fault in this!!!! Norco's customer service is really good and they replied to my questions very quickly. Smile

I have a 2008 Norco A-line PE that I bought used a year ago. Rode Whistler for a week this past June and when I got back I shipped the front triangle to Footloose Sports in Mammoth since I'm down in southern california. They shipped out the replacement the next day. Couldnt be happeier with the service.
