    Polygon Bikes any good?

    These bikes are just so cheap. They have an analysis against the bike. What do you think?

    2011 Polygon Collosus AX3.0 with Shimano Deore XT 30 Speed

    There are some others in the range also.

    That bike aint that cheap dude, you could get a better spec'd trek remedy, or rocky mountain slayer for around the same price point. I'm sure the latter are much better bikes

    Collosus AX3.0

    I'm picking up my new collosus AX3.0 in 3 days.

    After much research, I could not question the quality of components fitted for the price. To be honest, I could not find any other brands of similar style bikes with the components for anywhere near the price.

    It was a tough choice between the AX and the FR for the same money. The FR came with the Hammerschmidt and the frame looked very sexy. The AX more suits my riding style though these days.

    Bicyclesonline.com.au customer service can not be faulted. Thanks guys!

    I just got one today from bicycles online. So far it seems great! But the real teset will be once it gets out on the trails, but sofar i am happy, the component quality is great, and the frame looks good.

    it doesnt speak to the quality per se but they do have a big name djer on their team who probably could have signed with most anyone.

    I swayed away from the polygon just because it was my first bike and i found an awesome deal on a camber pro. For my next bike though, once polygon rep has been built up a bit, i dont think i would hesitate. especially since i live so close to their shop also.

    5 years ago they were just above dept store bikes - last 3 years they have upped the anti and started making some MTB's and roadie frames that are pretty much as good as the mid range from the usual suspects - here they are about 2/3 price or you'll get deore / SLX instead of Alvio etc.
    FYI: all Schwalbe tires are made in Indonesia too
    FYFI: Do not buy a bike or a component from a website based in Indonesia- that is a scam

    Picked up the AX3.0 yesterday after a small assembly hick-up with a factory fitted part. the mechanics were great putting together a whole new bike for me.

    First ride on a flowing single trail and it is very impressive. Coming off my Specialized Enduro and Diamondback Mission, the AX3.0 was effortless in it's pedalling motion. The bike responded readily to rider input and felt balanced and confident.

    I'm looking forward to pushing it a bit harder on some more technical trails while they are still dry.

    Cheers

    Very interested in your thoughts nath69.

    i have put the deposit down on the same bike.

    Some questions, if you dont mind !

    Have you tried to convert the wheels to tubeless ?

    Do you have a total weight on the complete bike ?

    Whats the width of the bars?

    What was the slight hiccup ? PM me on that one, or PM me thru rotorburn..

    The fork almost makes it worth while. What's an integrated bb? That might be a deal breaker.

    It's hard to tell from the pictures is this a mini link or single pivot design.

    The CRX is a horst link.....

    I can't believe how cheap these are, the components look like they're worth more than the bikes!

    I don't see how they can source the components, build the frame and still make money
    The components retail are well over $3000. Wholesale cant be much less than $1200. And then they still have to make money but where does it come from lol

    I have one. I have no way of measuring the weight, but its fairly heavy, i'd say at least 14kg. But the fox talas 36 is a big fork, bit of weight there. Had no other problems.
