Strength:

For a bigger bike this rig peddles nice. Good balance in the air. Likes steep technical terrain. Capable climber with 888.

Weakness:

Had some problems getting spare parts for this bike, took a few tries to get the correct product from Norco. It was a picking error or wrong object in the box thing.

Great bike for the price

Strength:

everything.great parts spec!!!The only parts that failed were caused by a bad crash,rear der and bars

Weakness:

got to be carfull not to put to much weight on the front end in high g-force turnes.front looses traction easily.must keep weight farther back than my vps team.66 forks are high maintenance.Especially in constant wet riding

awesome bike!! If you love extreme,tightand and steep technical trails youll love this bike, but if you have the guts and technical ability this bike will keep up with any pure dh rig except in wide open terrain.Ill say it once more i love this bike!!

Corey Pearson   Weekend Warrior [Jan 31, 2008]
Strength:

frame is solid, have gone off bigger and bigger drops and it continues to take what I can work up to with ease, its nicely balanced in the air, nimble, and still climbs like a goat when you need it to, (provided you are a bit stronger in the legs)

Weakness:

syncros rear hub pawls sheared off, but was replaced with a hadley hub, 150 size makes for a solid rear wheel, hardly any dishing to offset spokes.

this bike was an incredible purchse, I needed a bigger bike for not only my size, but also the way I ride. not many companies produce extra large frames, the xl shore fits my six-six and 250 lb frame perfectly. I have ridden whistler and washington (thanks for the free vps passes to norco) and limited north shore trails, and lloads of locat stuff. it is stable at speed, can be flicked around (sortof) and continues to laugh at everything I throw at it. Norco has improved it again this year and I will definitely continue to buy thier high end products.
