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.
