Strength:

everything, this thing is a tank, it crushes anything in its path.If you want to go a certain direction, theres nothing stopping it. I LOVE THIS BIKE!

Weakness:

hardly nothing, just had a bit of a problem with the rear disk mounts, and it is a little heavy but still I love heavy bikes

The compontents I have on this bike are new so it complements the bike really well, although i really do feel that the bike is getting on and becoming a bit old I still love it and I love just taking it down to my local trails. If you dont mind age and want a beefy bike then look no further as the atx is for you. The only thing that I dont like about the bike is that it makes a bit of noice, although im still tweaking it.

Strength:

Loads of suspension, especially with goldtec long travel plates (8 inches). Huge frame with zero flex.

Weakness:

It can be a bit big for some uk downhill courses but other than that NONE.

This bike is amazing it can handle anything you throw at it, its simple with one suspension settting, for its size its very light. Stable at high speed and agile on gnarly stuff and corners this bike is a definate winner.
Anyone with the cash or sponsorship should get one ASAP.

this bike is great!
i got a sweet deal on the frame , R4500 (aprox $540).
one of the better dh frames although it's a bit old. it takes anything you care to point the front wheel at!


If you can, buy this bike!!!!!!!!!!

Strength:

the frame & componentry - frame handles anything you can throw at it and doesnt complain about it, sweet components do the same

Weakness:

manitou fork - dont do the bike any justice

great bike for the $$$ - DH, freeride, anything. Corners very well for a DH bike, flies thourgh technical sections, good for pedalling.

Strength:

the frame is super tough and stiff. Can handle tight technical trails better than most dh bikes. Great dirt jumper,for a dh bike. Always lands big drops(12'+)smooth and you hardly notice the shock bottom out,Obviously Nick s(other ATX-2 reviewer) dosn't no how to ride a bike much better than my grandma. As for the components, the wheels kick ass(mavic d321 rims), the raceface turbine dh cranks broke the first week,replaced those with some kooka dh and havn't had a problem since

Weakness:

the manitou fork

rad bike for dh racing and freeriding. this bike has no limits.

Strength:

strong head tube and really beefy sweet bike for the shore but dont go to big cause when the rear shock bottoms out it gets ulgy even if you wade.

Weakness:

the rear shock fox rx is bad and its a little heavy, not great for the shore found better bikes before like yeti lawwill, bullit, rm 6, marin team dh, 8 ball

ok bike depends on how much you buy it for and what you got
for your money a used one with say monsters should go for
about $2650 can in good condition

Strength:

Superb package for the cash.
By far one of the best performing DH suspension designs.
Super frame due to low maintenance and plush suspension.
Awesome finish throughout - and best of all NO V-Brake mounts.
Formula Open Hydro discs, AC Chain device, D321 rims, SDG saddle, Tioga Factory DH tires, RaceFace Turbine LP DH cranks, XT rear deraileur. Nice.

Weakness:

That fork (Manitou X-Vert R 5,5" travel) does the bike no justice.
Should put a 185mm rear disc rotor (he he I want everything).

BEST downhill bike on the market. Change the fork and you will fly!

Strength:

This thing is awsome, a true tank. It goes wherever you want it. NO flex, and travel fells like more than 6 inches!

Weakness:

ONLY weakness is its weight, but what do you expect for a bike as solid as this one? GIANT also has a weakness in that they dont make this one any more.

I got a sweet deal on this frame, $625 in excellent condition and including RF DH cranks. I got way more than i had bargoned for. Try one and you will see what I mean.

FSR crap.(not saying that FSR is bad, just the one I had was.)
