    What do all you guys think about the Azonic DS-1 for dirt jumping, park, and street? Is it a tough enough bike? Does the horizontal dropout cause a problem?

    Also, what do you think about the marz. z4?

    get a steelhead if your gonna go with azonic. that is a more street/DJ frame. smaller so easyer to manuver just a little heavier because its steel.

    Both are great bikes for what you want. Plenty of people ride both. Don't sweat it. Go with the one you like the look of most. You'll probabaly ride it more. (Oh, and I agree about Diamond back - :farting sound: is about right!)

    I like the DS frames as i borrowed my old roomies bike and raced DS on it and it was and rode real nice. I don't think they make them anymore and your only choice from azonic is the steelhead which looks nice but it is 130 bucks and u do get what u pay for.

    Yeah there is the slight geometry difference between the two - The Azonic is slightly steeper and quicker, for 4x racing.

    thats actually not true they cost 150 for dealer cost. yes you do get what you pay for but the steelhead is a fine buy
