    Strength:

    Cheap, nice welds. More fun on serious terrain than a hard-tail

    Weakness:

    Brake jack now and again, depending on rear tire

    This review (frame only) is for guys thinking about buying the latest line of Airborne bikes, as I'm sure they are related.

    Bike is pretty heavy and was cheap as it was hanging around on the Chinese internet. Really similar to a Santa Cruz Heckler, although with a few differences, mostly stronger build and the way the shock connects to both the top and down tubes.

    Some solid welds and very strong construction on the conservative side and over engineered for toughness, although weight and geometry may not be cutting edge compared to a premium bike.

    Has had no problems so far, and will use until I have the money for a pimped out frame like a SC Nomad or Giant Reign, but I get to have fun, buy parts that I like and think about it until then.

    Strength:

    1.5 headtube, hydroformed tubes, light weight, stiff, tons of travel with different shocks

    Weakness:

    not a well-known company

    i thought i would try a different company than the normal ones, so i got a flyte. its worked out great. with the ablitys to do jumps and to do drops i am very happy with it. i have experimented with different shocks for more travel and i have to say its worth it. if you use a 7.5 shock it will be 150mm of travel, but if you get a bigger shock it will have more. for example a 7 7/8 shock will have 168mm of travel and an 8 inch shock will have 187. currently i have a Fox DHX Air 5.0 shock (7.875 x 2.25). it works great. great freeride frame overall and maybe a little downhill. if you can find it get it.
