2012 Norco Aurum 2- near new, LOW hours! $1500 OBO UPDATED!

Update- also includes a new in box Rockshox Charger damper upgrade for the Boxxer fork (a $500 value).

The Aurum ushered in a new era of DH bike for Norco- long, low and slack, this machine likes to go fast (definitely faster than my 50 year old body wants to go!). No more than 30 hours of riding (a handful of Keppoch trips), everything is in excellent condition, with just a few shuttle and bike rack scratches. Even the original rubber looks new. No pedals included. Size Large.

If you like riding Keppoch, there’s nothing like riding it on a DH bike!

Never crashed. Needs nothing other than maybe a rear brake bleed- it’s starting to feel a little spongy but still works well. Includes the original X-Fusion 400lb coil spring as well as the currently installed Fox SLS 450lb coil spring.

Added a brand new Charger Damper upgrade for the Boxxer to the listing to sweeten the deal!

Make an offer… lots of bike for the money!

If it was xl I’d have jumped on it!

I’m about 5’11" and found it to be on the large side. From the Pinkbike review-

large felt just about right for a 6’2", 200-lb rider

Reach is slightly longer than the current Aurum A1 in size L although they do now offer an XL size which they didn’t in 2012.
