    I know there are more AM type Asr 5/5c's out there!
    post them up-

    here are two videos of 5's tearing it up!

    Good god, that makes me look like I can't even ride a bike much less deserve to ride a 5.

    To heck with the couch shots.
    Here ya go:
    Doing a stepdown drop at a local DH race.

    Just landed that big jump in the background and was laying into the berm in the pouring rain.

    Having fun on a high speed super d course.

    And finally giving her a rest.


    Don't let anybody tell you that you can't have a blast on this bike on the downhills.
    Stiff suspension and all this thing rips.

    Funny you should say that, my ASR5 C is for sale for just that reason. I don't wanna sell it but I'm gonna be sidelined for 5-6 months after my next leg surgery.

    It's a large. I'm selling just the frame, headset and 142 axle.

    Wow! Dude is ripping on that bike. I've been using mine more and more on AM trails but I need some beefier tires to really press things. I'm still afraid I'm going to break it.

    Yes, it is a medium frame with a Rev team u-turn 120-150.
    I have never even ran it over 140 though. It feels great in the 130 to 140 range.
    I wanted to run the uturn for a while just to see where I liked the travel. I would rather have a 2012 Fox on it set to 140 to be honest.
    Also, 90 % of the time, I just use this bike as a normal trail bike. I only raced it on a couple of courses around here that suit small slalom style bikes.
    But it has handled everything I have ridden with no problems at all.

    Here is mine in DH/AM tune. Went to Thredbo (chair lifted DH course) to test it out last weekend. Just changed to flat pedals, DH tyres & chainguide. Was still sub 12kg in this spec.

    Bike ripped the smoother sections of track, was a challenge through rock gardens. Ended up being spat off the bike and broke my arm!

    I cannot directly blame the bike. I was tired after a couple of days riding (partly through working so hard on the bike) and got a bit off line and was punished. A DH bike would have rolled over the rock/dip no worries. Following a friend on a Nic Helius ST only highlighted how hard I had to work to keep up compared with plowing over everything. Was great way of honing skills though. People there thought I was loco riding a carbon trail bike down the DH track at high speed.

    I only just got the bike and it rides so differently to anything i have had before, does not seem to forgive sloppy riding.

    Where is the trail in that first vid???

    What did you ride just prior to the Asr5?

    As for the videos...
    New Zealand for the first video and the Yeti video is somewhere in the Colorado Rocky mountains. Neither are me...

    Intense Uzzi & IH Mkiii. I still have the IH and even though it only has 10mm more travel it feels completely different to the Yeti. The Yeti feels closer to my roadie when climbing and does not have the feeling of bottomless travel like the IH. Yeti is so much faster in all areas though itís crazy. It rewards confident riding for sure.

    I am heading to NZ in 6 weeks. I was going to ride for a day at Queenstown bike park. Not sure that can happen now! Ill go have a look either way.
