Reason for Sale: moving towards enduro riding
Postage: will post by courier at buyers cost
For sale is my Norco Aurum 1 2012, the bike was bought new in July of 2012 and has had some parts changed and upgraded since then. I helitaped the whole bike as soon as I got it, including forks (bought later on) and cranks, so there are almost no marks on the frame etc.
The bike has been used very infrequently since I’ve had it (once a week at most), I was injured through last winter and it didn’t get used in the summers due to working in London. It’s never been raced or taken to the Alps etc.
Condition: The bike is in very good condition (as shown in photos), no creaks or play anywhere, frame bearings are smooth and quiet. The bottom bracket is very slightly grumbly. There are a few small marks in areas with less helitape.
Reason for sale: i hardly ever use this bike anymore, im much more into my enduro riding currently.
The main upgrade is the Boxxer World Cups, which were bought new in April 2013; they are running very smoothly and won’t need another service for a while.
The spec has some slight changes in regards to the photo, different grips, pedals and tyres (the pedals have dodgy bearings and the current grips are pretty worn).
