AX6000 Helios fork

Postby Gumgardner » Fri Jan 28, 2011 9:14 pm

Does anyone have any first hand experience with the ax6000 fork? How does it handle? Also does the cowboy stance look weird on bikes?

Yes, it looks weird on all bikes.

I am not a fan of it at all. I am all for light weight, but that's one ugly fork.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

I've ridden one for 5 hours or so.

Still among the living.. :xBanana5:
It had a very nice ride, even w/ some hard braking on mtn descents. I weigh 70kg.

The cowboy legs don't bother me much.. and besides they are made to go on all black function-over-form wunderbikes anyway.
the problem? could be the nut behind the handlebars.

As with most things German they should only be used with extreme caution!
Also some Ax products have been reported to contain up to three or four microscopic air bubbles.

We have people honking and yelling dirty stuff all the time, we must be pretty imprettive.
