In my opinion, the SC Bullit. The quality and performance of the frame are great! But thats just my opinion.dmananderson said:Which do you think is better for agressive trailriding, freeriding, and downhill shuttle runs. Any imput and pics are great.
You can get either a 1.5 converting headset like the XC from cane creek, or spacers to use with a standard 1 1/8 headset. However I think that using spacers will increase stack height which actually might be a good thing with a 5 inch fork on an asxdmananderson said:I already have a manitou sherman firefly 1 1/8. Do you know of a manufacture that makes the shims for the yeti asx. thanks
i think Krispy was running a Z1 150mm, ~ 6"? might be wrong, too lazy to skim the article...Tully said:The Transition is heavier, and it comes with a Romic, whereas the Bullit and AS-X are about .5 lbs apart in weight, feel similar when riding, and come with a 5th Element, plus the AS-X has a 1.5" head tube should you ever want a Sherman single crown. I currently ride my AS-X with a Boxxer and race-oriented DH parts for freeride and for shuttled and lift-accessed riding, and it simply rips it up. With a 5"-6" fork, an AS-X would also be a killer aggressive trailbike. Obviously, my vote goes to the AS-X. Check this out, and keep in mind that the review was done with a 5" fork, so a 7" Sherman Breakout Plus would make it just that much sweeter on the descents, but still able to lower to 5": http://go-ride.com/artmag_asx.html
I have an ASX and love it. pedals good for 7" of travel and just plush on the rough stuff. I have the breakout plus on the front of mine. Mine is i 04 with the 5th element. Have not ridden the 05 with the fox.dmananderson said:Which do you think is better for agressive trailriding, freeriding, and downhill shuttle runs. Any imput and pics are great.
Have you done any research on the ASX? There's plenty of proof out there that it's a capable big hit bike. If you think the Bullit is capable of "everything', as you put it, rest assured that the AS-X is as capable, and maybe more - burlier frame construction (imo), 1.5 headtube, stiffer and more progressive rear end, better pivot placement = better pedaling, travel/head angle adjustability...thesacrifice said:Is it a big hucker? Can it take the abuse? Heard some things about the BB being too high or in a weird position? I haven't seen one in person...yet. The Bullits look really burly in person but not so much in pictures, is this how the Yeti is? All reviews make the ASX seem like a super aggresive trail bike but not something capable of big drops.
