This one's a real barn find. Dating back to the early 2000's, the Sugar was Fisher's XC full-suspension bike, a sister to the Trek Fuel, but I always felt like the Sugar was a bit more rugged. This bike even has a super cool linkage (Sybil, presumably named after the girl with 7 split personalities) that lets you convert the travel from 2.8 to 4.1 inches. It rides super nice, even with these bizarrely narrow Hutchinson tires, and it's light as a feather, but if I were you I might put a wider bar and short stem on it. It's a true extra large, but the top tube gives a bit of leeway in standover and sizing. The Hayes brakes could use a set of pads but they work fine, and the wheels are cool Bontrager Race Disc tubeless-ready items in great condition. Everything works and the shocks seem to be holding air. Not interested in trades, because this is part of my big 'clear out the shed to make room for a new Devinci Troy' project. Make me an offer, though, and for instance if you want normal width tires or a different seat I can probably find something you'd like.

This project started as a way to use up extra parts I had lying around. But it ended up being a very nice bike! Some new parts and some used but very good condition, and everything upgradeable of course. Original bits: Wheels (real Shimano hubs, nothing fancy but in excellent shape and ready for a jillion more miles, Weinman rims (remember them?) that are like new) Brakes (Hayes mechanical discs that work and feel amazing) Shifters and derailleurs (just Alivio units but they work perfect) New: Crankset, bottom bracket and chain (the cassette is used but in fine shape) Dramatically upgraded: Fork (I put this old Reba SL on here because it had no home. This fork is probably worth more than the rest of the bike) Bars (sweet Holzfeller bars that haven't seen much use and look really great with the paint scheme I think). The frame definitely has some stories to tell. But there's no damage other than some cosmetic stuff, and sadly the dark rose colour has faded a bit. But overall it's a decent looking machine, with all the mechanical stuff freshly tuned and/or replaced. I left the Chromag seat on it because it looks cool (very comfortable too BTW) but it is rather badly dog-chewed on the back section so no problem to replace it if you want. Go ahead and make an offer, but if you want it a lot cheaper than asking I will replace the Reba with its original Dart fork that still works fine, just a bit heavier and a lot less sophisticated. If you want to go crazy we can set it up with a 27.5" fork and front wheel for that mullet style. That would be fun actually. Come take it for a spin at Lynx and Hare Cycles in Alton, just south of Orangeville.

Hi everyone, this Norco is in very good shape for a 5 year old bike. I rode it a few times and liked it a lot, but I have so many other bikes that it didn't get in the rotation often. I got it because I thought I should move into the 21st century and enjoy the modern wheel size and long slack geometry and ended up always using my 26 inch bikes. So here it is, almost new but for a scuff or two, and almost stock, just some new tires on it and a shortish stem. I never even wore out the brake pads. If I can't get 1100 bucks for it I'll just keep riding it every once in a while. I really like it, I just want to get a new Troy. Thanks!
