Strength:

Burly.

Weakness:

Fork.

This bike made me a better rider. I love it. It can handle everything from chairlift resorts to local cross country trails. I mostly ride trails and it has been perfect. Big enough to take on anything I want to throw at it. Light enough to pedal to the top of everything. Pedal bob has never been an issue. Its been ridden extremely hard and I've only had to replace a few minor parts. If I didn't get hooked up with a new bike I'd be on this for years to come. I can't recommend this bike enough to anyone looking for a cheap all mountain bike. New ones are crazy expensive but norco finds a nice balance between quality parts and affordability.

Strength:

almost like a dirtjumper

Weakness:

realy stiff suspention,
it's too light

A terrible downhill bike, the forks broke in the first 2 months (im only 13)they are being shipped to marzochi canada now. Crappy for the kind of riding I do. it is probably a great bike, just not for what i do. I use a large, and am 5ft 11 and weigh 160lbs, (and i'm 13)

Strength:

None

Weakness:

It's a weak frame,components suck,geometry. I don't own this bike anymore because the frame snapped...

Don't buy this bike. It will be in the shop more than it's on the trail. It breaks every time you go out riding.

Strength:

Price for all mountain ability.

Weakness:

Heavier than more expensive all mountain 6" bikes

I broke my back riding stunts last year and have toned down my riding by pedaling more and shuttling less. I still downhill a bit and ride small stunts so I didnt want to go any less than six inches. Mine weighs in at 37 pounds as compared to a reign or a nomad at 32. I have been changing out the pedals (spd's - flats) depending on what Im riding which is working out great for me.
Besides the weight, Im very happy with how this bike climbs; no bob. The Marzochi all mtn fork and fox air shock work well at soaking up the downhill.
Ive ridden the crap out of this bike over the last 10 weeks including a lot of shuttling through rocky trails and had no issues. Overall I highly recommend it.

Strength:

No pedal bob, don't think I've bottomed the rear out ever, good looking

Weakness:

The standard parts, I've customized my six

Basically this is a really good bike - if you customize it yourself because you will be disapointed if you try and use it as it comes. I got it the Six Two as a frame set and customized it and NO problems so far!
