    In terms of what? I run the havocs with a Hadley 135x12 bolt. Perfect setup. Plenty of clearance to run a big tire. Ive had a Ardent 2.35 on the back already with tons of room to spare.

    Sorry Walter should have explained what I was thinking, which was the asymetrical design was produced to allow the wheel to be built with the rim centred to the hub flanges (stronger) which would mean the dropouts are moved to the drive side of the frame.
    This would mean having a wheel built up for the frame or tweaking an existing wheel.

    But looking at your photos I just thinking I've mis-understood what Intense mean and they are referencing the bracing on the non drive side so I can just slot a standard built wheel in.

    Also is the black FS frame anodized the same as the HT or is it a painted ?

    Thanks

    Im sure the idea was the latter. The finish is a textured powdercoat. Cleans up pretty easily, tho i wish it was anodized.

    Thanks for the feedback, looks like the HT Tazer may get an upgrade
