Product Description

Add an Intense Tazer HT Frame to the quiver and dial it in for your focus-demanding, nerve-requiring, two-wheeled discipline. Install reliable, heavy-duty components and exceed maximum amplitude on dirt jumps, murder the Tazer out and boost it off stair gaps on midnight urban adventures, or build the HT up with a smart mix of feathery parts and explore the limits of traction on a 4X course. Whatever your intentions, the Tazer's proven angles, stout, manipulated 6061 T-6 aluminum tubing, and vers

Strengths:    looks, strength, stiffness, chainstay length

Weaknesses:    tire clearance, but the frame is pre-2.5 Muddy Mary days

Bottom Line:   
This setup turns this bike into a freight train, but it's still nimble enough to carve trails. I bought it kitted out for DJ, but I'm lightening the build to race DS next season. This frame is a legend, will never part with it. Have heard horror stories of BB shell separation when the frame is used for unintended purposes but this thing is stiiiiiiff.

Strengths:    Stiff as a mother. Sprints like its on crack.

Weaknesses:    not as light as I would like. frame is about 6 pounds. I wish they could have taken some material out to make it around 5 pounds but the extra pound makes it stiff in the headtube and bb area

Bottom Line:   
The only two week things on this frame is the weight of the frame and the cost(1000 retail) if you can buy one used or through a shop trying to get rid of one then get it. You will not be sorry if you do, if you are looking for a bike thats designed for gate racing then this is it

Date Reviewed: July 1, 2004

Strengths:    The geometry of this frame is the best I've ever rode. The frame tracks awesome. It's light weight (relatively) & burley.

Weaknesses:    Maybe the price if you pay retail. It's a shorter frame which isn't a weakness for me but could be for some.

Bottom Line:   
I couldn't be happier with the frame. I don't know why more people don't post a review. The price is for the complete bike by the way. Also, mine is a 2003 but I don't think there's any differences. Then again, there's not much info out there on this awesome bike. I'm somewhere just above a beginner but below intermediate so I don't have the skills to take this frame to it's limits but I think I would break long before the bike would. I've only taken it for one ride so far so maybe I'll post another review in a few months after some good drops. This bike is is MUCH more fun than the Uzzi ever was.
