Strengths:    Tough, Looks Nice, Its a Norco.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I bought the bike used for $375. It came with the tires pedals and upgraded forks. I am looking for a new rear shock or get a lighter spring because i'm 13 and I only weigh 110lbs. Other then that I have been very happy with the bike, especially for $375.
I highly recommend this bike.

Submitted by Tyler a Weekend Warrior from Vancouver

Date Reviewed: May 20, 2003

Strengths:    Cheap, decent all around components, nice brakes, beefy frame. Tough Alex MX-22 rims.

Weaknesses:    Cheap saddle, EXR fork broke. Rear swingarm was not heat treated properly, and needed 2 replacements b/c of bending.Thin sidewall tires... many pinch flats.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a good bike for light duty freeride/trailriding. It's too heavy for crosscountry, but not quite tough enough for freeriding. It handles well, but I feel the rear swingarm is too flexy. I broke the crown on the stock EXR fork, and upgraded to the Dirt Jumper III, which improved the bike quite a bit.
