    possible used intense tazer buy. inspection? weak points?

    let me admit at the beginning, I'm a beach cruiser type, but I've always liked the idea of having a nice downhill type bike. no real reason beyond they just look like the mountain bike to have if you're going to have a nice one.

    for that reason I'm not looking to spend much and haven't searched with a lot of commitment, but i came across a used intense tazer for a pretty good price. appearance-wise it looks good, but i'm just wondering what I might check/inspect for damage. known weak frame points and whatnot.

    thanks for any help.

    if you are just cruising it around....then who cares (not harsh just reality)

    but for giggles

    drivetrain- does it shift well
    strait rims
    no dents in frame
    look for cracks in frame

    personally for just having it and you feel it is a good deal....buy it
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    thanks. it wouldn't be for cruising, it would be my mountain bike. granted it might collect a lot of dust between rides, but like I said, I like that type of bike.

    the general things to look for i'm familiar with. I hoping for known things specific to this bike. it's relatively cheap, but I won't be able to pull out the harbor freight welder and repair something if it's cracked.

    The Tazer is not a downhill bike but a short travel 4x/DS bike. You can ride it as a trail bike but not very comfortable because it has a pretty short top tube.
    Regarding weaknesses: depends on which year it is. There are 4 generations of the full suspension Tazers (FSR, 1st Tazer VPP aka flying V, Tazer VP FRO w/ straight down tube and Tazer VP FRO w/ bend down tube) and 2-3 generations of hardtails.
