Norco has released a lot of exciting bikes for 2012, one of which is the Valence Road Bike. The Valence is designed for road riders who join Grand Fondos and charity rides instead of racing.

Nicely refined and engineered, the 2012 Norco Valence Road Bike is an aluminum machine that comes with vibration-damping Applied Road Compliance (ARC) seatstays.
