Founded in in British Columbia, Canada, Northern Cycle Industries was deemed too long for a downtube decal or headtube badge and was shortened to Norco Bicycles in 1968.
Norco Bicycles began manufacturing its 10-speed drop bar road bikes in 1975 after spending some time on full suspension BMX bikes. In 1984 Norco began designing and manufacturing mountain bikes, becoming one of the first North American companies to address this emerging market.
Through hard work and dedication, Norco Bicycles introduced the Rampage: North America’s first front suspension-specific mountain bike. Global sales go wild and Norco bicycles dives into a new market and produces the Super Cross 125 and 250, two of the world’s first Street/Dirt Jump-specific mountain bikes. In 2016, the Norco Search wins a Design and Innovation Award. Editors called it “a new way of thinking – a bike for those who want to continue onwards when the asphalt runs out “.
Basecamp Cyclery carries multiple Norco Bicycles for adults and youths. Take a look below at the different Norco bicycles we carry and stop in to demo them for yourselves!

Explore single-track, tackle a gravel grinder or load up for a bike-packing trip. The Search XR is for all the adventures you can imagine, and for those you have yet to dream up.
The Search XR Steel is not just head-turner. The strong but lightweight steel frame has a ride feel that is unique to steel as a frame material. The vibration-damping material properties combined with thoughtful frame design make the bike a pleasure to ride.
