Welcome to the nuthouse and being a dirt rider, you'll fit right in
My son recently bought the Evolution, which I'm pretty sure is the next level up from the Ascention - similar or same frame with slightly better bits. It's a well made, well set up bike with good quality components. It works very well and he loves it (apart from the noise the nobblies make on the road). It's entry level mtb - a serious mud bunny could probably start to break things, but it'll do him and would do me to be honest - I'm not brave enough to get into true bike breaking territory.
I think the advice would be - if you're planning to be serious about mountain biking and can afford a higher level bike, get the better bike. If you're just out there enjoying the bush and banging around in places that would make your roadie shudder, it's a good bike at a good price. As always, buy the best you can, but this isn't cheap rubbish either.
I had a good bike ... so I fixed it
yeh but thats the 2006 version of the bike just google rider cyclery and then go to mountain bikes and then go to $500-$1000 and click on apollo ascension 07'
p.s. i cant type the site just yet as i am a new member
My brother has the 2007 Ascent which is a nice bike. I think that drive system you may find a little lacking if you are hitting dirt trails.
Where abouts are you?
I am considering selling my Apollo Enduro if you are interested. Much better specs SRAM X7, rockshox ...
Well guys i just bought the Apollo Ascension 07' it is one of the best bikes and value for money...i was tlaking to a guy and he was sayign it is better then the boulder discs and the same if not better then the giant rincon 08',what you guys reckon??

Goodonya Croat, welcome to the world of dirt
My first MTB was a 96 Apollo, full rigid CroMo and very basic compared to what you get for todays cash, but she was beautiful, 'til she got pinched Still burns.
Can't really comment on current Giant MTBs, my Princess is an 04 Rainier with major mods and she's still a bundle of sweet riding joy.
Get out there and get sweaty mate, you deserve it.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.
