If you’ve been paying attention to our industry lately, you’ve seen the meteoric rise of the Fatbike. Pioneered by a few, then made commercially viable by Surly Bikes, the Fatbike was built for Minnesotan Winters. Where other bikes falter, the Fatbike rises above, gracefully floating over snow, sand or any other particularly loose material. This is a bike that will turn a typically boring season spent on a trainer to it’s own brand of racing, riding and generally debauchery. All this said, it’s pretty easy to understand our excitement when Norco announced that they were stepping a foot into the ring.
The Norco Bigfoot is a great example of what a company can do when it takes the time to pay attention to a trend, learn from other’s mistakes and goes all in. It’s an Aluminum Frame, based on their popular 29” and 27.5” platform the Charger. This keeps weight down, but more importantly, makes it a little more nimble than it’s competitors. A 2×9 Shimano drivetrain keeps thing’s spinning, and keeps the large 4” tires moving forward.
And the best part? All this for $1,399.
We’re getting a limited amount this December, but have two in stock right now. If you’re interested – swing on by and take it for a spin, they’re a ton of fun. The tracks already laid down in the shop is a testament to that.
