It was last August somewhere in Iowa when I got the email from Norco. I wasn’t sure what it held, but when I opened the file and saw the renderings of the newly announced 2015 lineup, I immediately focused in on the Tactic SL. Bright, fast and aggressive – I knew this was going to be one heck of a rocket ship.
Fast forward to this past week and finally seeing the Tactic SL built up for a good friend of the shop. We knew we had to share it with ya’ll.
We’re ridiculously excited to see Denise destroy the competition this year with her new steed, but until then we’re happy enough to stare at these photos.

We’re coming up quick on our Year-End-Party and Auction! As is customary, we’ll be spending this week on our Blog and Social Medias giving you hints and sneak previews into what will be up on the auction block!
We’ve got a two-fer for you today! First up : Studded tires! We’ll have a selection of studded tires from Nokian on the ‘Sweet Deal’s table for you to peruse, and the raddest thing is that they’ll all be 2-fer-1’s! Get your Winter Bike set for Winter Commuting with a pair of Studded Tires for half the cost! That’s a pretty ‘Sweet Deal’ if you ask me.
Next up : Our Rolf Prima Demo CX Wheelsets. If you’ve been participating in the MNCX season, you’ve probably seen us providing neutral wheels to local racers. Well, it’s time to retire the herd and we’re selling what’s left at a hefty discount this Saturday. Not sure what will be left, but rest assured – there will be some insane deals.
But that’s not enough for you, is it?
You want *free* things.
Well then, how about if we gave away one of those Rolf ECX Wheelsets? In either Tubular or Clincher (your pick). Regularly $599, but for one lucky individual the low price of free.
Watch out for rapid-fire updates on the Blog, Twitter and Facebook as Friday and Saturday approach.
Be sure to RSVP on our Facebook page if you haven’t already! See you Saturday Night!
Of all the products that impressed us at Interbike, it was a product we had already decided to carry that impressed us the most. Rolf Prima Wheel Systems, a pioneer of the paired spoke system, has quietly been making some of the best wheels available in the country for the past 15 Years. With their Patented Paired-Spoke lacing technique and a variety of other proprietary technologies, their wheels are sure to be a welcome upgrade to anyone’s bike – be it MTB, Road or Tri.
One of the most exciting features is their partnership with White Industries. Known for their high quality, Made-In-The-USA products, White Industries makes one heck of a hubset. Rolf worked with White to design all of their hubs and make most of the hubs used on their wheels. Rolf is also moving to make their rims in-house as well (see more here).
Along with stocking Rolf Wheels at the shop, they’ve also partnered up with us to provide Neutral Wheel Support at all the Minnesota Cyclocross Races we’re at! If you thrash your wheels and we’re in the pit, stop on by and get back in the game. Be sure to stop on by anyways this weekend and give them a look! We’ll have them lined up outside our Tent.
We’ll have more info on products from Interbike just as soon as I get my photos organized. Be sure to watch our Blog and Facebook page for more.
