Norco Atomik with BBSHD

Post by PRW » Jan 18 2020 12:49am

At long last I got around to finishing this build - a 2005/2006 Norco Aline/ Atomik, with a battery box cut and welded by Samd. Battery is 52v 21ah 14s battery, BBSHD. Boxxer World Cup forks, Fox rear shock, Lekkie bling ring.

Test ride this morning - bike is really lightweight, very smooth. The rear suspension on the bike is very impressive. Next up, dropper post.

I really like the old framed bikes, like the Sinister R9 build. im really tempted to do a bbshd. my last build is so ass heavy 43lb at the rear wheel and 28lb on the front. whats the bike weight?

28kg/ 62 lbs. Nice to be able to lift the bike up easily into the truck bed!

those norcos, theyre popular here in Vancouver, but I think theyre called Norco shore or vps. I saw 1 of those frames with a lower what looked like a flat bar and another that didn't. did you have to cut that bar out to fit the battery box and did you weld the box to the frame?

Nice build! I have a 2005 Norco Atomik as-well! Did you need any BB adapters/spacers for the BBSHD/chainring or any special mods other than the battery? Thanks
