Strengths:    strong, predictable, great geometry.

Weaknesses:    n mounts for chain guide, that is the only thing i can think of

Bottom Line:   
this bike is great if you are going for a bmx/jumping setup. the dmr chainguide sucks, but does it's job. it bends way too easily. the bike is NOT heavy, considering what it is made for. i just took mine on a medium ride in he mountains. i had to push it up some of the hills because of the gearing, but other than that, it was great. doesn't kill you like an aluminum frame does. great bike....PERIOD!

Strengths:    This bike is absolutely a dirtjumpmachine! I think it jumps also without the rider(: Just a joke, in fact it's great and its made of cromoly 4130 cause only steal is real. I ride my Two50 with a DMR Trailbladefork (steal)and I ride it with Intense Mag 30 rims and also with a DMR bar, DMR cranks and DMR tires. What else shall I say?! Word!

Weaknesses:    Nothin'!

Bottom Line:   
I love ma Two50 it's great.

Date Reviewed: January 1, 2003

Strengths:    i felt this to be a pretty strong bike even from my first test ride, i also loved the bike on the trails and i really liked the fact that it had cable disk brakes instead of hydraulic fluid because it is such a pain it the @$$. i also really liked the fork, i'm a 175 pound rider and it wasn't too soft for me.

Weaknesses:    none so far, people complain about it's weight but i disagree if you know how to ride then weight shouldn't be that big a factor anyway.

Bottom Line:   
i thought this bike was an increddible deal for the comonents on it and the way the bike functions all together. i bought it a 699 and it usually sells for 1100 (or in that area). i also loved the choice of components that norco put on the bike, i liked the versatility of the bottom bracket since it wasn't a euro i can run a wider variety of cranks. the other great thing about this bike was it's strength (many people think it's too heavy but i'd rather think about how much money i'm saving on repairs). this bike is deffinatly worth the money, go get one now if you're into dirt jumping/urban assult/light trail riding.
