Strengths:    (For 07 fireball frame)Tight, light, nimble, looks good, great metalic orange colour.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the 07 fireball frame.

I had my 08 charger frame replaced under warranty because of a small crack after 3 solid years of hard daily use.
This was the only suitable norco frame available from the distributor, so although it's an older generation of frame I took it because I immediately loved the colour and it was the most similar frame to my charger.

I find it pretty much identical to ride, light, tight, handles beatify, comfortable fast, I absolutely love it, Norco makes great frames.

Date Reviewed: December 8, 2006

Strengths:    Everything, particularly drive train, brakes and solid frame

Weaknesses:    None really, except the 'super cool' name

Bottom Line:   
Awesome bike at an exceptional price, looked around at simiilarly priced bikes and they didn't stack up. Great components, (go SRAM before Shimano!!!) and real nice on single track and fireroad.

If your into XC riding, get one. Not so much for freeride, definitely not downhill. Would be a sweet racing bike.

Get one
