For 2013, Norco added a sleek drop handlebar to their popular Indie model and created the Norco Indie Drop Alfine Di2 2013 Road Bike. Unlike its alloy predecessor, the Drop features a classic full chromoly frame, built light and tough to withstand daily doses of point A to B punishment. The bike's slightly more aggressive geometry encourages a more low-down riding position that increases pedalling efficiency and aerodynamics. The Drop also features an updated, road-inspired performance component spec. STI type shifter/brake levers keep command post clutter to a minimum and provide riders with a comfortable, ergonomic set of controls. The Indie Drop is the perfect ride for urban commuters who demand a performance package, but need a bike that's as hip as their urban lifestyle.
The urban jungle can present a rider with unexpected obstacles, as potholes and construction zones threaten to throw you off your game at any moment. The Indie is designed for those unexpected situations that make cycling in the city such a rush. Available in a variety of different styles and gearing options, every Indie looks right at home on the streets and delivers a fast, efficient and comfortable ride.
