Strength:

Well, this frame ruled....until it went bang. Stupid lightness for the strength. I totally ragged mine as much as i could and towards the end of its life the head tube did flare a lil. Now after 3 years i finally bust it (big set of steps)

Weakness:

Woooo.....thought only my stickers were canker. BB was a bitatch to get in first time.

You have to give it to it....prob one of the bestest frames there is, Super geometry, could do with slightly higher bb, or i need shorter cranks!
But Azonic need to make a better DS1, one thats slightly more beefy at the head end....with the arse of an evo and bobs your daddy....super frame.

Strength:

strong, rigid with the right amount of give, awesome geometry(especially in the smaller sizes)

Weakness:

rear chainstays don't fit a really fat tire unless you get a 24" and then it's still limited to about 2.6"

this frame is awesome.!!. if you like jumping or urban i would definately buy this frame it is insane. i love mine and would never part with it.

Strength:

Very light, great geometry, good price.

Weakness:

Too many decals, but you can deal with that. Otherwise, no complaints yet.

Great frame for a great price. Good jumper, good climber, and good for any cross country riding

G.D.B   Downhiller [Apr 12, 2003]
Strength:

Super snappy, Sturdy, jumps good, turns great. Very tough bike. I'm a solid 6'2'' and this bike handles the abuse of jumps, drops, rocky down hill sections, good for DS, BSX, both fast, and flowy trails. Very good price for a sick frame.

Weakness:

The decals are lame. I took em' off. The Chain stays would be better boxed. I wish Azonic would have left the drop outs alone for 2003

Great bike, Great value, If you are into agressive trails, DS, dirt jumpin, and BSX, buy this frame!!

antony dunn   Downhiller [Oct 10, 2002]
Strength:

solid ride, it's taken more hard knocks than jake lamotta and this puppy's still double hard, i only wish azonic made bones

Weakness:

stickers look poo! also make sure you do up that rear QR nice and tight 'cos those horizontal dropouts mean you might catch something precious between the tyre and saddle if the wheel comes off.

since i bought this frame i haven't even thought about getting a new bike - i'm a fat b*stard and this bike takes everything i throw it at - if you want a hardtail bike thats light and tough for jumpin' and downhill they dont come much better - i'm off to eat some more pies.....

Ben   Weekend Warrior [Sep 08, 2002]
Strength:

Super stiff, not too heavy, easy to maneuver, great price, excellent dirt jumper and urban assault bike

Weakness:

cheap decals come off too easily, head angle a little steep for extreme trail riding (or maybe I just suck at riding!)

Great bike, better value. Tons of fun to ride, super strong, will probably last longer than I do.

Matt   [Jul 07, 2005]
Strength:

Light , great jumping geometry

Weakness:

it breaks - resulting from extremely thin aluminum

this frame only lasted me 2weeks or about 25 rides. its way too expensive( i paid 690 cdn)
-everyone is way to confident that this frame won't break- mine snapped on the downtube when i was riding of a curb after about a week and a half of riding
