The Vexx DH bike is based upon classic DH geometry that will give it the versatility to perform in a variety of terrain. Although most of us fantasize about having a mountain with lift access in our backyard and wide open trails, the reality is most of us are shuttling our local single track or hitting our favorite session area where tighter turns and occasionally slower speeds are a part of the deal. The Vexx 6061 aluminum 8.5" travel frame is incredibly well thought out and keeps this reality in mind. The top tube is of monocoque construction to achieve focused, precise steering, all while maintaining plenty of clearance for maneuvering around on the frame.
Strengths: Burly frame strong welds, nice gusset, over all nice rake and solid feel
Weaknesses: not big on jumping choose to raise my crown now i have a 64.5* head angle, vivid in rear is comendable for the price but, runs sluggish overall I have riddin pretty much everything else and have this frame out of curiosity.
Takes corners very well progressive on steep decents not big on jumps due to weight (heavy) but i can put this anywhere off any other huck with the frame breaking. Awesome bike for any level of rider its a bargin

Strengths: solid chassis, pedaling, handling, and suspension feel.
Weaknesses: none yet other than rear shock. the rock shox vivid 4.1 that came on it was under sprung and the lower shock was damaged and not usable, but on the positive note the guys at pricepoint have exchanged for a new one.
well i have only had the frame for about two weeks and can say it pedals better than i thought it would. the steering angles are very close to my old trek session 77. the bike sits fairly low and the center of gravity is low, so railing turns is nice and smooth. i had a vivid shock from day one and replaced it with a marz roco wc. makes for a very lively rear end. once i get some real saddle time in i'll post a full review.
one thing i can say is that this a great bike for the beginner to expert level downhiller. plus you can't beat the price. more to come soon.
