Review: 2024 Norco Sight - For All the Mountains
haven't ridden the Norco, but as a longtime Forbidden owner of a V1 Druid, Dreadnought, and now the V2 Druid I can say the Druid is hands down one of the most fun bikes I've ever ridden. Don't be scared away by the 130 rear travel number its so capable. I just recently bumped mine up to a 160 fork and ride it on everything. Also the V2 Druid frames are $200 less than this new Sight and they aren't as portly in the weight department. Mine built up with a Lyrik, Super Deluxe, WA1 rims and X0 transmission came out to 32lbs I'm a bit biased as a Forbidden owner but I can tell you if you do it you won't regret it.

Forbidden Dreadnought LG (Shock options)

$1900 USD
Time to let my beloved Dreadnought spread its wings and leave the nest! Frame is ride wrapped and has a canecreek 110 headset (they no longer make a silver 110, so count your self as a lucky one if you are into that). Has the steel idler (lasts longer) as well as the upgraded race guide. At the current asking price I have the new RockShox Vivid on there. Shock is tuned specific to the dreadnought kinematics. If you wanted to haggle and drop the price I do have a RockShoc SuperDeluxe Coil. I’d take $400 off if you wanted the coil instead. The Vivid is damn near brand new. Has about 10 rides in it. It’s awesome and will def get one on my next bike. It won’t blow up on you like an X2! Frame has ride wrap on there which has a few scuffs and tears but the frame itself is immaculate. I’m sure if you took the ride wrap off it would look like a brand new frame..see pictures for scuffed wrap. Mostly on non drive side. I do also have a 180 ZEB Ultimate if you are looking for a fork. It’s the newest one with buttercups and charger3 damper. If you need a fork lets talk I do have the bike posted as a complete with all sorts of fancy bits and bobs if you are looking for that too. I can get you the listing if interested. (The TRP brake you see in the photos is not included in frame only sale! Just don’t want to disconnect it and pull it through the internal routing until I sell it! If you want a sweet brake set $300 for DHR EVO brakes let in silver! Best brakes in the biz!) Buyer pays shipping and PayPal fees. If you have questions ask!

Time to let my beloved Dreadnought go. Happy to answer any questions. This bike rips, just need to make room in the gary. Got a lot of fancy bits on it. Zeb with Buttercups/Charger3 Damper, New RockShox Vivid Ultimate tuned to the Dreadnought, We Are One Unions (Best, most bomb proof carbon wheels around!) laced to I9 hydra hubs, Running Shimano XT/SRAM GX AXS hybrid drivetrain. Been running that set up for 2+ years and love it. (If you really hate electronics I have an XT derailleur and shifter I can swap out. I'm not setting it up though I'd just ship them to you as they are new in the box). Bike is a little dirty in the photos, but I'd clean her up before shipping (unless you really want some of that Bellingham dirt shipped to you). I laid out individual parts pricing.

Bars are brand new) Brakes - TRP DH-R EVO w/ 220 front rotor and 203 rear (BEST BRAKES IN THE BUSINESS!)

@jaytdubs: You've got it all wrong...this isn't for AFTER your ride. Its DURING your ride. Get to the top, enjoy the view, and drink a frothy one. I do it all the time. Best invention ever

Reader Story: Making a Custom Bike By Recycling Old Frames
@coachnpt: no I’m pretty sure Rocky Mountain had a gravel bike called SOLO before the 5010 came out and that is why they changed the name…not Star Wars
