    Has anybody riden this bike? Opinions please...
    The frame is supposed to weight 5.5kg and the bb is very high. How does this affect the ride? Can you compare the bike with anyother similar?

    thnx

    I dont think there have been any official reviews on it so far.

    Found a previous user on ridemonkey who had/has one. Here are some of the posts pertaining to the azonic frame:


    Sorry about this, he kinda had a few posts worth of B-52 information and I frankensteined it for you. This is the link to the original thread, the review will probably make a bit more sense there.

    The OP asked about the 10" Gravity and you gave a [nice] post about the B52.

    I think a few guys on mtbr have had them or had direct experience with them, but they seem to be pretty rare as heavy, uber travel hucker bikes were so 5 years ago lol.

    Pretty clean ride. Looks really nice in the white like that one. I am looking for a frame, this might be a keeper?! :)

    Don't get a Gravity, get the B-52(the one pictured above). 14" Bb height, good, fun bike.

    :poster_oops: I thought that the B-52 was azonics only downhill/freeride oriented sled.

    it is. gravity's are not produced anymore.
    i have azonic recoil, older version of gravity, but with 240e2e shock on it instead of original 222e2e so it gets same 10" of travel like newer gravitys.
    for plowing through rockgardens it works like a charm, but if things get tighter it's like moving a couch around: soft and heavy.
    high bb is not a great issue because of massive sag, when i sit on it i get lower sag than on my friends new norco team dh with the same spring rate.
    so, bottom line- if you ride gnarly trails without much technical steeps it will be pretty good ride, but if you want something that works good in technical parts, forget about it.

    edit: sada vidim da si iz slovenije, tako da mozes usporediti azonic sa cult mashinom samo sa malo vise hoda, malo tromija i meksa.
