    Strengths:    Light and strong frame, adjustable rear dropout, can work with 24" or 26" wheels, disc or v-brake compatible,



    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    This bike rocks. I have owned my Astrix Union for 2yrs now and going. This is one light and strong agile frame. First is that you have many options on your set up. Either with disc brakes, or v-brakes, 24" or 26" wheels. Mine is set w/26". I have a friend who has his set up w/24" wheels. He likes the center of the bike being a little lower. I prefer the bike set like my other mtn bikes. On to the review.
    This bike handles so great on dirt jumps and skateparks. It just wants to fly. With the adjustable rear dropout, you can tuck in your wheel or extended out. Depending on the jumping your doing.
    Plus for me I get sick of seeing all other dirt jumping bikes mostly being BLACK. Too dull for me. So if your looking for a new Dirt Jumper you should seriously consider a UNION.

    Greetings! I have been attempting to mount my new UST Trail King 2.2 on my Mavic Crosstrail rim for two days now. I cannot get this bead to even get close to seating. I started with a floor pump but moved up to a compressor with no better results. So how does one lay/fit a tire to this rim so it ... Read More »

    Upgrading a Royce Union fsa 100

    I have 2 1990's Royce Union FSA100 bikes that I want to get rolling again. I've searched for specs, builds. All I've found is a few reviews and not much else.
