I may like bikes more than trucks 😁

norco bigfoot fat bike for winter and norco search gravel bike for summer. seems as though i’ve become a norco fan this past year! i just got such a good deal on them. i love the look of the salsa bear grease fat bike but my norco gave me more bike for way less money. i love the ride!!

I am old... school. I know that the new bikes with marginally good components are light years ahead of what I have. My problem is resource allocation. I have kids that are growing like weeds and need their own rides, so I upgraded my CX drivetrain. The leftover cassette, rear derailleur, bar end shifter and bars ended up on the incomplete Bonty OR. I ditched the 3x crank and bought a new to me 32 tooth 1x. It was more of an experiment to get back on a functional MTB but it rides well and quite honestly I might just leave it this way. I don’t ride the way I used too. Especially not on this.

I like the setup. Love the Cannondale aluminum. In a micro etched cross section, under a microscope, the metal looks almost uniform through the whole joint. It has great grain structure.
I had the privilege of working for a small company that benchmarked metal structures in welded bicycle joints. I distinctly remember the mid 90s Cannondales.

Cool info! That definitely was a great time period for them.

Currently rocking this 1987 Trek. I’ve had it a couple years. Super decent bike... I built it up for gravel touring and camping and to emulate my 26” LHT that I regrettably sold when I thought I was going to be moving. Only thing I miss are the drop bars. Otherwise it’s perfect. I restored the biopace that had gotten smashed by something, other than that this bike was practically new old stock in some guy’s attic via craigslist.

Check out that sweet rear brake setup! Shark tooth! Works pretty well actually. 1987 was an “innovative” year for Shimano.
