    Should I get an Anthem 0?

    I'm looking for a race bike (for short course and enduros) that I can also trail ride on rather than the trail bike (Spec FSR) that I presently race and trail ride on.
    I want something better climbing, faster steering, lighter (than 26 pounds the FSR is now) and with less rear triangle flex than the FSR.
    I've looked at Yeti's ASR, C'dale's Carbon Rush, Blur XC & Superlight and whilst these have their advantages I can purchase an Anthem 0 here in Australia for only about A$1000 more than the frame price of these other bikes. Organising trial rides of these bikes in Australia is ridiculously difficult so often we purchase based on reviews and other rider's comments - rightly or wrongly.
    Any comments much appreciated.

    Good job! Yes

    The Anthem 0 is a great race bike. After riding and racing a rigid singlespeed for the last 5 years I was apprehensive about getting a full-suspension bike. Well, since getting an '08 Anthem 0 I have been having so much fun! It is a tremendous climbimg bike that rips through singletrack and lets me blow by others on the descents. It weighs around 24 lbs. and is very efficient. Friends of mine have ridden the Blur XC, Superlight and Rush and purchased the Anthem. I also know guys who have ridden the FSR and said it was kinda squishy.

    Hope that helps.
