At Sea Otter Classic, you can expect a slew of mountain bikes and one that stood out was the new 2013 Norco Fluid 9.2 29er.

The focus for the 2013 Fluid 29er Mountain Bike is to bring the newer styling from Norco suspension rides, but sell for a more reasonable price at $1300.

Shown with a black frame plus red and white decals, the Fluid 9.2 29er is full suspension with disc brakes, FSA drivetrain, and beefy seat stays.

Shops will start carrying the 2013 Norco Fluid 9.2 29er late 2012.

Redline showcased many interesting rides for 2013 at this year’s Sea Otter Classic. Making its first appearance ever was the brand’s 2013 D680 carbon frame mountain bike.

The D680 will go through a few changes for 2013. The biggest difference between it and its predecessor will be a carbon frame, as apposed to the aluminum construction used on the 2012. Sporting a monocoque design, the 12142 rear, carbon frame sheds a bit of weight. A look at the new mountain bike’s BB92 system reveals a detachable, polycarbonate cover for easy brake cable access. When speaking components, the D680 carbon version will come dressed in SRAM XO, Ritchey Vantage tubes and 1 1/8 1 1/2 tapered fork to list a few.
