    No more ASR 5 in the 2014

    Not sure of the reason (sales?, phasing out ASR design?, phasing out 26'' trail bikes altogether?) but I don't think this is news...I remember us talking about the 5 going away in '14 many months ago.

    I'd be surprised if in a few years the ASR still exists. The 27.5'' 575 sales will be the determining factor of how long the ASR holds on for, imo. 1 year, 2 years, 4 years? If the over/under is at 2.5 years my money is on the under.

    Disappointing. The ASR 5 is the best trail bike I've ever ridden and is a great combination of light weight, great climbing, and long travel.

    The 27.5 SB is a pig compares to the light ASR. The frame alone is 2lbs heavier. Add heavier wheels and it looks like I'll be riding my ASR until I break it. Or I can pay $8k for next years carbon version.

    So 8 grand or so to get the same travel and weight I got on a bike for less than half that? Oh, but I get wheels that are a tiny bit bigger.

    I'm just glad I didn't get suckered into the 29er thing.
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.
