    Polygon Collosus DHX

    Hey Guys im looking at getting a new DH rig. I stumbled upon this http://www.bicyclesonline.com.au/pol...shimano-saint/
    Its got an awesome price point. But i have no idea how it rides. Has anyone had any experience with Polygon or this bike in particular. what do you all think?
    Cheers.

    No experience with the frame, but the part spec is great and the geometry looks pretty reasonable.

    Wrong geo chart for the Polygon. That's the FRX, not the DHX.

    Right, looks like the Polygon has adjustable geo and is slightly to a lot slacker than the Giant, depending on which setting it's in.

    To my knowlege giant has slackened their Head angle slightly for 2012, So polygon is on the right track.

    I've seen some hardtail and the fsr based trail bike...the welds isn't very impressive, no reported failures...so far. Pricing is really a steal on the DH/FR frames...The first batch of frames that entered our country have been all snatched, curious on how the frames perform.
