Strength:

Frame is BULLETPROOF. Parts spec is awesome for the money. Wheelset is also Bulletproof (Sun DoubleWide). It will go where bigger bikes with more travel won't.

Easton RAD tubing frame is very stiff and amazingly light, If it was built with light components it would be a very fun trail bike.

Hayes 6" hydros are great too.

Weakness:

Fork- Z5 I had to put stiffer springs in. Not really a weakness, more of a bike setup issue.

Heavy, although weight isn't an issue for the purpose of this bike.

NONE

Hands down best version of the 250. This bike will do it all. Urban, trails, jumps, dirtpark, downhill. A liitle heavy for climbing, which it wasn't designed for.

Best bang for your buck for an indestructable versatile bike.

Not made for XC riding, but awesome for everything else.

Strength:

This bike feels, EXTREMELY nice, the frame is phat and it can take a beating.

Weakness:

The tires had to be switched to gazzies 3.0 and 2.6 rear, brakes to HOPE Pro's and fork to a 2000 JRT QR20. This bike is pimped

THe bottom line is this bike is extremely nice, mine might have a bit to high of a cockpit because of the JRT and the 24" rear. It weighs about a ton but ure not gonna buy this bike if weight is an issue.

Strength:

Very, Very sweet bike. So inexpensive for what your getting! Great looks, STRONG, fun, conquers anything. Makes previous obstacles alot easier!

Weakness:

The Z5 is the only downside. Mine seems to loosen up while I ride and then tighten again an hour later. Very Strange...

Very sweet bike, highly recommend it. Too Bad I got like one of the last 10 a few months ago...
If you are a hard core freerider who likes urban and doesn't mind the wait this is a great bike!

Phat Bike, It holds up to anything I throw at it, I've done 8.5 and 9 foot drops on to flat with it and it just soaks it up like nothin'. All the parts are unbelievable and hold up awesome. Stiff as hell NO flex whatsoever. It rides like no other.

Weakness:

None!

PHATTEST BIKE EVER CREATED!!!!! If you want a strong tank of a bike with no flex at all in the frame and dope part spec and a great warranty buy this Bike, Best for all Urban, Dirt Jump, Freeride, Even Downhill!

Strength:

this product is extreemly strong the first day I took it out and hit the jumps. My old bike wouldnt hold out like this.

Weakness:

the only problem is that the chain roller sometimes allowes the chain to jump underneath it.

the bike is the best designed mountain bike ive seen for taking jumps

Weakness:

Pedals!!!!!!!!!!!! spikes always fall out Forks botom out regulary.

Its a good bike for freeriding and urban but when it comes down to hills start walking. and long distance you will have a sore but.

Pavel   [Jun 26, 2001]
Strength:

all the components are really strong, the bike is fast, very comfortable position that fits every riding style
Life time warrantee on the frame... 3 piece cranks are awsome, Hayes 6'...

Weakness:

double wides are not the best rims... after 3 weeks of use mine already hops, although it's my own fault
the seat is a killer to ride long distances (too hard)
grips are good for first 2 weeks, but it's best to change them
Pins fall out from the vp pedals

The best bike i've ever ridden, took some time to get used to the position and the bars, but after that it's impossible to go back to any other bike. This bike can take lots of beating. Z5 seems to be working perfectly
this is a great bike, i definitelly recomend it

chris   Racer [May 27, 2001]
Strength:

great in the air,good forks for the bike not to big not to small,brakes,20mm axle,bars & stem. PRICE it's cheaper than everyhting else

Weakness:

it's weight 17.1kg although no-one at norco will tell you that, they just say they think it's about 14. it's tires are just to big! they make the 24 inch rear wheel basicaly 26 inches and changing them is a must unless on a downhill track.dmr chain guide plays up alot. cranks get loose doing big drops. not good for any riding up hill

great bike if you set it up to your needs, i use mine for gaps and street and have it set up for that, it's great for downhill and slalom i use it for racing and it rocks. i give it 5 out of 5
