It needs to have a concentric BB. The main pivot rotates around the BB shell in order to keep the axle the same distance from the center of the BB to maintain constant chain tension.

Sopring loaded tensioners can also be used... BUT those are aa pain in the dickhole.

I really wish they had made the Ticket S in a concentric BB setup. I mean it's not like it needs to be Full Floater.

My Ticket S is also Singlespeed with a Zee der as a tensioner. couldn't get a limit screw long enough, so I've got a bit of cable holding the tension. Works flawlessly.


I really do miss the simplicity of my bass or my soda slope though. Concentric pivots are the shit for slope, but man the ticket s rides too good.

Dear Intense, can I please have a Tazer DS with a 'Concentric pivot' around the BB. Cheers.
Cool

Tazer frames have super slalom/4X specific geometry. You'd be better off with a full suspension slopestyle frame.

There are several. The old Kona Cowan DS/Bass, the NS Soda Slope, the Specialized P.Slope, the Dartmoor Shine, the DMR Bolt... I know I'm missing some but that's what I know off the top of my head.
kill switch..

Bolt
DMR Bolt.

I briefly owned this Bolt after Vanilla... Should never have sold it but got a firm telling to do so by the ex-missus. God damn.

Babah freddy too? Bit of an oddball but loved the geo of my Terror HT and i know they are basically the same frame but with squish.

Agreed. I'm kinda curious if they are going to revamp the Ticket S frame, now that they have a suspension design that isnt full floater (Slash). It would make sense to me.

Don't they have a few pros on the Ticket S with a single speed setup?

semenuk just built up a new frame thats running gears again. Honestly probably my favorite paint job I have ever seen. Thinking of getting mine custom painted too.
