Strengths:    For the price... this frame is unbeatable!
it's strong, and the horst linkage works really well.
Looks good and the 3 travel settings is very handy if you do lots of different types of riding.
ALso has a nice rear shock for the money (£600... what a bargain!)


Weaknesses:    None really...


Bottom Line:   
An awsome frame. The perfect bike for anyone that rides lots of diciplines of MTB, a real "all mountain" frame. Great for downhill, freeride, 4x, jumping, even a bit of XC (but is a bit heavy).
Comes with a great shock for the price, and is DIRT CHEAP for what you get!
super happy with mine!
10/10!

Strengths:    Nice and beefy rear seat and chain stays.
Horst linkage rocks!
Perfect manitou swinger 4 way shock, for Freeriding. Allows bottom out control.
Nice, active rear suspension
It's new, I'm the only person on the planet probably riding one. Avent cycles has been making great BMX bikes for a while, they did a great job of entering the FR suspension MTB market.
The frame kinda resembles a Kona Stinky, but with a better rear suspension design that reduces brake jack. It stays active instead of tightening up.

Adjustable travel from 4,5,and6. I just leave it in 6 inch.

PRICE! PRICE! PRICE! screamin deal!


Weaknesses:    A little heavy, but that just means it's durable
Should have cost me more! I mean come on, we all know a frame sucks unless it costs $2000. Justkiding. It's the cheapest horst link frame with the awesome swinger shock you can buy!


Bottom Line:   
This frame is ideal for people who switch between 4,5, and 6 inch modes all the time. You don't have to change the springs! All you do is add or remove air and you can get the perfect feel every time.

This frame feels sweet with a 150mm fork on it and can take 15 foot drops with ease.

If you are on a budget, SERIOUSLY consider this FRAME! It's the best bang for buck you can get right now.

Here is a link to the article: [url=h ... Read More »

Fox Boost for Cannondale Prophet

I'm looking to get a new/custom Fox Shock with Boost ordered for a Cannondale Prophet (Large). Has anyone had Fox build them a shock [B]with boost[/B] for a large Prophet? If so, what was the 3-digit boost number on the bottom of the canister? Thanks!Read More »

What is a Boost Valve?

I would really like a more thorough explanation about what the boost valve does on the FOX DHX Air 4.0 rear shock. Adjusting the PSI seems to impact the compression damping which I am still uncertain about what that is. It ranges from 125-200 PSI and it seems that up near 200 provide a stiffer rid ...

Float X on Mach 5.7: lack of boost valve a problem?

Will the Mach 5.7 not work well with the new Fox Float X shock? I was thinking of trying one out then read that it does not have the boost valve and includes less bottom-out resistance. Since some people are already complaining about shock bottoming and the 5.7 easily uses all of its travel, would ... Read More »
