Why not? It’s only a short survey? And it’s important for my studies - but ok..sorry for asking.

I just bought a 2006 Astrix Havoc on Craigslist for a price I couldn’t pass up. With that being said, it’s missing a component of the rear suspension. It’s the pair of linkages that the rear shock mounts to, I believe Astrix refers to it as Motolink. I have access to a machine shop, so I would be able to recreate the parts. Are there any Astrix owners/gurus that would be able to send me the basic measurements for these parts?

The only thing that depreciates as much as a rolls royce is a new DH bike. Get something a season old and save big dollars.

Are you sure you want a Downhill bike?

That's not what dh bikes are for.
They are meant to be ridden in the bike park and on dedicated trails or race tracks. If you wanna just ride around your local area on bumpy roads or on simple trails, it's not what you want.

So Endoru bikes should be good for that ?

Does anybody run the fox flexair full length pants? (or similar)


I'm keen to give trousers a try but not sure what to do about knee pads?


I have the fox launch pro D3O knee pads, which I like a lot, but they are relatively chunky. With the fox pants being quite fitted I can imagine the knee pads looking kinda dumb worn underneath them and I can also imagine it getting real sweaty under there.


Do people go for lower profile knee pads when wearing pants? Or do they fit under better than I think they will?


Pls advise
