Ti   Weekend Warrior [Sep 19, 2014]
Strength:

Great frame. Stiff as hell as others have commented. Horizontal dropouts. Good looker too.

Weakness:

None for its intended purpose.

Love this frame. I ride this thing around town on the paths and sidewalks or take it down to the corner store for a soda. Little practice at the pump track too.

Skip   Cross Country Rider [Jul 06, 2003]
Strength:

Horizontal dropouts make for a great singlespeed, yet capable of running gears also. Light enough for cross country, strong enough to ride urban.

Weakness:

Only weakness is that they discontinued the horizontal dropout for 2003. =(

I have only had this bike set up as a singlespeed. It is great for cross country and also for urban rides. The geometry feels great with a 4 or 5 inch fork. I am sure that I will break a bone before I break this frame.

Alex Brown   Weekend Warrior [Feb 10, 2003]
Strength:

- super stiff
- very responsive
- good dimensions for all kinds of riding
- quite light
- strong

Weakness:

- The chainstays bend.
- Stickers peel

I'd like to point out there is a BIG difference between slight bending (like the ds1 chain stays tend to) and breaking. The bending has not changed the strength or handling of the frame for me

This older model of the Ds1 can now be picked up for around $300 - wich is good value for this frame.

Azonic have now launched the 2003 azonic ds1 - wich has new chainstays that don't bend, and new stickers. But this is allot more pricy - at around $460 (in the UK).

The ds1 is a good all round frame, with a few small problems, but nothing big enough to put me off! :)

Les Steel   Weekend Warrior [Dec 10, 2001]
Strength:

Quick steering, strong, disc compatible, good looking

Weakness:

Sticker set not stuck properly, could do with two bottle mounts

Great handling bike on technical trails and Ok to jump and do a bit of xc as well. Far too good to keep as a slalom bike only. Price above is in English pounds.

Tyler Janicik   Weekend Warrior [Mar 04, 2002]
Strength:

horizontal dropouts for single speed setup, stong frame, with fun geometry, CHEAP price, but not a cheap frame

Weakness:

limited frame color selection

this bike is the most fun you can have on two wheels, I ride it every where. The gear ratio is 32X16 which gets me going fast enough to do any urban assalt stunts, and is also a very easy gear ratio to wheelie for dropoffs or just ridin a wheelie. With the ECC control on my fork I can lower the 130mm of travel to imporve the geometry for climbing on the fly, then turn the travel back on enjoy the smooth travel for dirt jumping, urban assalt, trail ring, and what ever else comes to mind. If you don't own a single speed get one quick, it will put a smile on your face every time you even think about riding it.
