I had a 03 292 but did not like the low bottom bracket.Everything else was great. The 04 BB was raised and has 100 mm up front. The Asylum is sweet but only has 2.7 " of travel vs 4". I will ride this bike is in rocks, roots and muddy conditions( east coast).

What do I get??

Just got in from my ride on the Asylum! East coast is where I'm at.

It's hard to believe it only has 2.76" of travel in the rear. This bike handles superb and plows through the East coast root, rocks, mud, tight and twisty - no problem. Had it all today! Love this bike.

I'm sure you'll get responses to look at the Lenz. It sounds like a another sweet option.

Perhaps the Airborne guys should brings us more up to date on their FS offerings. The last pics I saw on here were very promising. I hope we'll soon have more than one 4" rear travel option. Although I never had the chance to try it, I'm sure Fisher's great, but they need a bit of competition to keep them sharp. Can't wait till the definate 2005 Fisher news reaching this board.
