Strengths:    Everything!

Weaknesses:    Stock Roco Air.

Bottom Line:   
Very solid bike. Mine is built up from the frame with beautiful components. This bike absorbs all the roughness with the DHX 5.0, and is still very nice in the smooth stuff. It's very light and easy to pedal on road.
Bottom line is: BUY IT! The bike won't let you down, it is the best bike ive ever ridden!

Strengths:    Great stock set up & parts list, very smooth and even suspension. Even with 9" of suspension travel the bike still reacts quickly when you want it too. Bike is anodized not painted now. Norco Sais it's to save weight but from my point of view it's just looks cool and is a lot more durable/ wont chip.

Weaknesses:    If purchased brand new, for $6500 it can be a little heavy on the wallet, but considering all that you get for every $$ you pay it's great value. Also, bike is a bit heavy, this may bother some people but personally i like a heavier bike, I fine you get better high speed stability in the rough stuff. Stock petals suck, but to me this isn’t really a weakness just an inconvenience. It would be like not buying a car because you don’t like the stock tires it comes with.

Bottom Line:   
1. Great great great bike and even better bike for the value.
2. Really good stock parts list.
3. Tough components.
4. Reliable.
5. Very agile considering weight and amount of travel.
6. Your friends wont be able to keep up with you.

I bought this bike for the purpose of down hilling but I ride this thing everywhere. If your interested in the bike but your worried about the weight like i was at first, don’t, it's really not that bad, and if your using the bike for it's purpose you'll love the fact that you'll be able to bomb through lose rocky sections while your friends are getting tossed around like a snowflake in an avalanche.

Strengths:    -Adjustable travel
-True Horst Link 4-Bar
-Solid parts spec
-Excellent value $


Weaknesses:    Read review

Bottom Line:   
What can I say about a bike that comes full spec with all the sweetest DH components available at just over $4000? It's absolutely one of the best deals out there for a big-hit DH bike. The Norco Team DH is one of those bikes that will last a good 3 seasons without needing anything but new tires and brake pads. It's built like a tank and perfect for anyone who rides lift access mountains.

The suspension action is PERFECT. You could ride this thing off a 25 foot drop onto a boulder field, slam on the brakes, rail a berm then launch a 15 foot double and not even blink... no pedal feedback, no brake jack, fully active (all the time) and smooth as butter. It's that good. The bikes stiffness and true 4-bar suspension will make you a better rider. Beginners will instantly ride expert trails and experts will post faster times on their favorite trails. IT'S THAT GOOD.

Two (minor) quirks...
1. The BB is high so it won't rail turns like the Iron Horse or Intense. (but then your pedals won't get smacked on rocks as often as those other two either.)
2. Its no light-weight. It will take more abuse and go bigger than a 38lb "race" bike but it won't accelerate as quickly on tighter courses.

If you thought about getting this bike, don't think... buy it. It's that good.
