Strength:

-Solid Bike
-Fork
-Brakes (Great for DJ/Urban)
-BB Bracket / Cranks

Weakness:

-Front Tire
-Rims
-Grips

The Norco 4Hun is a solid all around bike for DJ/Urban. I have been Jumping "her" for little over a year and a half, and have had no problems what so ever. I would recommend up grading the rims. The current Alex rims are not the strongest if you are a agressive rider.

*There are accounts where this frame has broke (snapped) but I have not seen it in person..

I wouldn't worry about it sense it takes alot of abuse to be able to break one!

Bottom Line : If you can find one..Get One!

Strength:

Strong, quick, comfortable, and agressive

Weakness:

none yet

It's a great bike everyone I let ride it loves it. If you can find it buy it! It's the best out of all the bikes i tried, it works great for urban freeride and of course dirt jumps. I loves drops and stair sets. Also this thing loves to fly. So if you like to do what i've listed above you have no reason not to buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Everything is super solid. It loves air and can take a beating. Cranks are sweet!!

Weakness:

DMR Tension Seeker is for vertical dropouts, not horizontal. Upgrade to chain tugs!!

This bike lives up to all my expectations: nothing is breaking, it's sweet in the air, handles exceptionally well, and came stock with dope components. If are tired of your MTB components busting everytime you try anything remotely interesting and you like to jump: you'll love this bike. Oh, and contrary to what is stated above, the frame is 7005 Alloy, not Easton RAD.

Strength:

What a cool frame. First off, the geometry is amazing. The green color is awesome. The horizontal dropouts and beefy tubing is great. And for $321 CDN (including tax) for the frame...THAT'S SICK! Awesome for dirt jumps and urban. Really easy to manual even with my 26" wheel. With a 24" and a disc brake it should be even easier. I love my 4hun and couldn't have spent a better $321.

Weakness:

Not really any. I'm running a 26" wheel on it right now and the tire clearance is kinda low. Good tire clearance for 24" though. I'll have one soon! As far as I can see, the only problem with this bike is MY skills...Hahaha

Great frame for great price. Looks awesome, rides even better. Can't go wrong with a Norco.

Strength:

This bike is just awesome. Perfect conversion from BMX to mountain bike. Super beefy components that im sure will take a pounding. Havent had a chance to really test it yet, but with stock 24's and Marzocchi DJ2's, nailing big stuff is something that can be done with confidence.

Weakness:

So far so good. I have heard people complain about the DMR chain tensioner but i guess time will tell.

If your looking for a solid hybrid bike to transition from MTB to BMX, or vica versa, this is definetly the bike to go with. I hated the thought of going mountain bike till i rode this bike. Pretty hard to beat the quality and product this bike has to offer for the price.

Strength:

Cheap, very good geometry, bmx bb shell, adjustable vbrake tabs (26 or 24 inch vbrake compatable), color.

Weakness:

actual weakness, cracked the frame after just over a year of smooth park riding. Frame dropouts came bent from the factory. Derailer hangers very dificult to find. BB shell not simetrical

If your on a really tight budget, and need a park/dj/freeride frame, this is for you. But if you want a frame that will last, that has quality qorkmanship, and doesnt snap off very little abuse, then this is not the frame for you. Right from the start I was very disapointed. Yes it has the perfect geometry, but a frame needs more than that. I wish norco would have charged another few hudnred bucks to make the frame worth buying. This was a total let down, and I will never buy another norco frame.
