    Azonic Avenger...yay or neh?

    Has anybody ridden (or have) an Azonic avenger? I know its more of an AM bike, but I figured the FR/DH might be more familiar with Azonic frames. Its a basic 6" 4 link bike...looks nice (aside from the 68mm BB WITHOUT ISCG tabs) and comes with a Roco world cup on it. I know that Azonic doesnt build their own frames, and that they've had some issues with quality in the past...but i can pick one of these up for about $900 which doesnt seem too shabby if they are in fact decent frames. Any thoughts...or any other frames out there that come in at about a grand or a little more with 6"+ and are decent. Can't spend too much right now and need something to replace my cracked Ellsworth Joker...didnt have enough seatpost inserted and cracked the seatube DOH

    That one actually looks pretty damn similar sans the dropouts being on the swingwarm rather than the shock stays...not too familiar with sette, but I'll check that out. Just looked at Azonics B-52...it also looks good 7.3" travel, but the question is, will it actually pedal uphill at all. Looks to be FSR, but not seing any decals or such.

    I do like the flight AM, looks pretty good and price point shows em coming in at $399! Has anyone here actually ridden one of the Flight AM bikes? I've been told that bikes with the dropouts on the swingarm dont ride quite as well as those with the dropouts on the shock stays...Anyone care to set me straight as I've ridden mostly short travel bikes or single pivot bikes.

    Basicallly the update of the Azonic Saber/Xtension AM model. I had a Saber and loved it. Horst link, AM geo, decent for intended use.

    B52- Propedal on, you can climb, all depends on the legs, IMO.
