Strengths:    Very responsive frame, aggressive geometry

Weaknesses:    Manufacturer out of business, a bit unstable at high speeds

Bottom Line:   
This is a race machine that can be fun to ride too, at its best on twisty single track, switchbacks, it goes like it was on rails, easy to over steer.
My only concern was how to replace the hanger, I found out that it is the same as the one for the Kona Caldera ( I already replaced the original)
I'm very satisfied with this frame.

Strengths:    great value, I got the complete bike special deal, which came with an Axel Platinum fork. The fork didn't hold up to my abuse.

Weaknesses:    as far as the frame, nothing. The fork that came with it was a bit weak.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is an awesome deal for the money. I race it, and do pretty well. The only complaints I have is that it is a bit long for me, but that I could fix with a shorter stem (not hard!).

I have taken this thing down things that some down-hillers won't do, and it has taken the abuse very well. It handles very well, and climbs well.

This bike is AWESOME for people getting into racing. It is a great deal that you won't find anywhere else. Quality bike for a low price.

The funny thing to me, though, is that mine is the only one I have seen!

Bottom Line:   
Call me crazy, but these reviews all seem like fake puff articles from the manufacturer or distributor. I'll throw in five stars so I don't change the current rating, but if I'm right, it's pretty lame.

Strengths:    Great Looking Hydroformed frame.
Very Stiff and light.
First Class Support.


Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I got mine off of Ebay straight from the MFGR for half price, and built her up myself. My email and questions were answered by the owner James Raddin, and their support was second to none. I love the way the bike handles, the steering is responsive and true, uphill or down.

Strengths:    Great looks.
very rigid frame.
Super light weight


Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This bike is an excellent cross country race bike, Light weight and rigid frame make this bike climb like a mountain goat and the decents are fast. The frame is a real eye catcher and draws alot of attention at the starting line. I would recommend the Celsius 6 to any hardtail fanatic who is into fast clean racing.

Strengths:    Stiffness of frame

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Better hang on because your about to take Flyte. First off this bike is almost too pretty to even get dirty but once you get past the razor sharp looks and throw your leg over this demon on wheels you quickly realize that this bike is going to make riding a little more fun.
Handles like a nothing I have ever rode before, real tight turns up hill are nothing more than sweeper with a hicup. The stiffness of the frame gives you great comfidence that this thing goe,s were you point it, were other bike moreless follow your lead the Celsius 6 pushes you aside and clears the path for you and others to follow. The new ATX platform demand to be pushed to the limits and screams for speed.
You couldn't ask for a better bike or a company to deal with, the people at Flyte are as great as the bike with quick reponse and results. Thank you for such an unbelievable product.
