Norco Fluid FS 4.2

Here's another post about a Norco bike that is unique and distinctly awesome. The Fluid FS 2.4 is a full suspension trail bike for the little shredder in your life (it also comes as a 20"). Overall the Fluid series could almost stock a bike shop by itself. The adult Fluid FS is a great platform at a ridiculous price for the spec. There are also several hardtail models including a 24+ plus bike.

The new color for 2017 takes into account the fact that orange is every kid's favorite color.

Unfortunately we didn't get to test this bike out because of the size, plus it will be in its new owner's hands in a day or two. We know how it will ride because the Fluid platform is rock solid and fun. The spec is unlike anything we've seen. It comes with a Rocksox Recon fork and Monarch rear shock.

The drivetrain is a Shimano Deore Shadow 1x10, Tektro provides the hydraulic disc brakes. I assume these would be Shimano but Tektro has stepped up and made hydraulic levers for small hands. Even the Wellgo platform pedals with sealed bearings are a perfect match for this bike. I'm already looking for a pair of these to upgrade by kid's Storm hardtail.

To top it off this bike even comes with a dropper post by Trans-X. We put a fixed post on this one for the new owner but she will probably grow into the dropper soon.

This bike isn't hanging around long but we have a good selection of the Norco youth hardtails in.

Yes - you are seeing this correctly. That's a lockout on a 24" fork.
