Ok I'll admit, the swoopz are growing on me. I really like the attention to detail like the nice looking welds.

The Norco Shore 1 looks great in person. Saw them around when they were being demo'd on Whistler.

Having owned a 2003 Norco Shore... I would be interested in seeing the change...

Hate to disagree, but I honestly think that the Team DH above is, without exception, the ugliest bike I have even seen in my entire life.

You know that show pimp my ride with Xhibit? They take some random dude's busted, 1979 AMC Matador, and make it like the nicest AMC Matador ever. The West Coast Customs crew paint it up really nice and put like a microwave in it because the owner likes to eat burritos on the way to work. Here's the thing, at the end of the show it's still just a painted up AMC Matador. That kinda sums up my feelings about Norco year in and year out.

Super disco-y looking innit? 5 years from now, were all going to look at the current trend of curvy swoopz on bike frames and cringe...

I don't really care how a bike or the parts look. I'm all about functionality... are those curved tubes better in some way?

Give me performance over fashion but if you can give performance and STYLE then we have a winner.
