    Strength:

    Great sturdy frame, good for riding Sierra's

    Weakness:

    Zero Customer service. No derailleur hanger. Hanger is part of the frame, I bent mine and stripped the threads a month ago, have sent an email and numerous voice messages, and have gotten no response. I have even had other people try to get a hold of them with no response. Perhaps they are out of business, it's no wonder.

    Buy a bigger name product. This is a great frame but it has been rendered useless by a bent derailleur hanger. I may have to have the part fabricated at a machine shop which may be cost prohibitive. Get something comparable from a larger company, don't waste your money. If anything happens to this frame, ( not if but when, if you like to ride hard), you are SOL!

    Strength:

    it is a very versatile frame.
    the suspension is 2nd to none.
    frame is strong and confidence inspiring
    accelerates and pedals extremely well
    corners and rails through rock gardens.
    very good at dirt jumps as well.

    Weakness:

    i think it could use an updated 1.5 head tube. to accept newer forks.

    This bike is a very nice bike. every time I try and ride other bikes, I feel there is no bike better than this bike I own. it just does almost everything well from cross country to dh/fr. even some of my friends are willing to trade their bike for mine. This frame is strong enough to last you for a year or two of constant daily abuse. This bike is also very easy to do tricks on while in the air. The frame was worth every penny I spent- one of the best decision I do not regret at all.

    PS: it also pedals like a cross country bike.

    Strength:

    Strong, progressive suspension, fully active suspension, have not seen another in brisbane, great looking, pedals/sprints well, feels light and agile

    Weakness:

    none so far - just take the time to tweak the suspension to suit

    Only been into dh for a couple of years. started off on a second hand 05 stinky. the huckster is miles ahead in rear suspension action and allows much more control. she is (relatively) light for a dh bike and pedals quite well on the inevitable bits on most dh tracks. this bike has taken my confidence to a new level.

    Strength:

    great bike the first ten minutes i was on it i hucked it 6 feet and was hooked from there on

    Weakness:

    when i purchased the frame it was missing a bolt the shock is not easy to change since you have to take apart more then one linkage

    this is a great frame and astrix customer service is awesome the fame feels like it ways nothing when you are pedaling and the 8 inches of rear travel just makes me wont to fligh of of anything great frame if you look hard enough you might find a deal like mine or if not just spend the money and buy this frame

    Strength:

    Progressive suspension, zero lateral flex. Bottomless feel. geometry. Peddle efficieny Um.. I am sure of ther are other things, but I need to ride.

    Weakness:

    can't think of any.

    This is by far one of the best freeride bikes I have ever ridden. I swear it would take an act of god to bottom this frame. Bottom line, if you want a strong bike that can take anything you can dish out, buy this bike.

    Ryan Pusch   Downhiller [Oct 28, 2007]
    Strength:

    This bike it built to ride. the Moto-link suspension system is great for pivot points. It may feel heavy but when in the air this bike rides like a dirt jumper.

    Weakness:

    It is a bit heavy but with the right fork it can make it ride like a 25LB bike.

    This bike is awsome. by the way it rides and looks it feels like the astrix version of the VP Free and in my books i would chose this bike over any bike accept the norco team DH (bike of the gods)...

    Strength:

    performance, price, individual suspension design[ not a ripp off of all the big players eg DW VPP]

    Weakness:

    none

    If you want a bike that is capable of winning a dh race one day. then doing some freeride stuff the next day. this is the bike.
    great value and rides sooo well.
    dont right this bike off until you have ridden down the hill on one
