Norco Valence

Time for a quick catch-up at what’s been through the doors of Andy’s Bike Clinic over the last week or so. First off, we have a lovely Norco Valence. Shimano Road Sora 2×9 with SRAM road Tektro brakes and an FSA crankset, this bike received an Interim Service along with a new KMC Chain USA 9 speed chain. Beautifully balanced bike.

Seems like it’s been hanger week at Andy’s Bike Clinic. This Norco Bicycles Valence needed a replacement hanger, Shimano Cycling 105 rear derailleur and a KMC Chain USA chain. After fitment, a quick gear adjustment, and it was back putting miles under its tyres on the tarmac.

Norco Valence

Only the second Norco through the doors (I think!) and this one’s a road bike! Norco’s renowned for its excellent mountain bikes, but it seems they know their way round a tarmac basher too, Fully Shimano Road 105 equipped, this is one quick bike. Unfortunately, due to a snapped rear gear cable, it wasn’t going as quickly as it should. So, a replacement Fibrax Limited inner and outer was finished which immediately improved matters. Gears adjusted correctly and the owner’s already put a couple of 100kms under its wheels.
