Awesome frame, ride soooo well due to all the weight being at the bottom, making the CG really low. It rails round berms, its also plush as hell. taking it out to france this year wonder how it will cope with the braking bumps

Strengths: stiff, and plush on rockgardens, easy to handle, corners fast and pedals very well, agree with others in this reviews in all the positives
Weaknesses: non so far, agree on the need for a floating rear disc, but I got one from brake therapy and hapily ever after
Great bike, I have NO regrets of buying this frame, I moved the parts from my M-1, and rode it for 3 DH sessions, and decided to sell the Intense. I love my Avent Vandal, I think is a great bike well designed and fair priced, no need to pay more for same performance. I will recomend it to any Dowhiller or FR'er. Will not disapoint.

I brought a reporter from Marin Magazine with me to the flow trail build and while I was explaining to him how ... Read More »
Little information out there.:madman: Anyone ride, tested, know something the masses don't. Or do you have a friend who may ride either of these frames? Avent is American and Nox German. Your thoughts and reviews wanted.
