TNT made several distinctive frames, I have an original green one.

1991 Ad Invert july 1991: The TNT Pro and Pro XL Frame and Forks are made of 100% cromoly from end to end with Hi-Performance Geometry and reinforced dropouts to eliminate flex. This gives you better gate starts -the most important part of racing. The TNT frame is a tough competitor on the BMX circuit. Now you can get the edge on your competition, too.

TNT Derringer hub.

From the 6 ounce Mini to the Pro XL you can see the quality workmanship that goes into every TNT stem. Our superstrong stems are made from aircraft quality aluminium and are designed to clamp tight. Every cromoly shaft is press fitted into the neck at 4,000 pounds of hydraulic pressure. Each neck is individually inspected and tested in our Quality Control Room for any defects or imperfections. TNT stems are the only ones that are guaranteed 100% against breakage or they will be replaced for free.
From left to eight: Cruiser, Pro XL, Pro, Freestyle, Junior, Mini [not pictured Pro XXL stem]
The TNT seat clamp doubles the holding power by using two bolts, instead of only one like most conventional clamps. The result? Maximum stability and strength. machined from high tensile strength aluminium, all TNT seat clamps are also chrome plated for added performance and long life. tnt stems 1991
1994 Ride BMX UK april 1994: TNT's new line-up of frames now all come with ACS brake mounts brazed on, and they are currently testing a new jumping frame. The frames are now also made by TNT themselves in their new factory in New Jersey (previous TNT frames were made by GT)
2000 Mark Zalewski liquide TNT en 2000.
Legendary BMX manufacturer and Factory Team Owner, Mark Zalewski sent us
some spy photos of the TNT Derringer & TNT Revolver sealed hubsets,
as well as their hot NEW LOGO. With the success that TNT has had in the
past with their full line of products (Hubs, Stems, Handlebars, Seat
Clamps, & Framesets), Mark who still loves BMX has had the desire to
begin manufacturing TNT products again, and he's come up with some
winners. "Back In The Day", TNT's line of products was some of the
highest quality parts on the track in the 80's to 90's time period in
BMX and Mark sponsored some great riders (The Foster Brothers among
many, many others.) and his team was a fixture at East Coast races in
the U.S. with a high profile and always making an impact on the track.
According to Mark, "I really wanted to bring back the hubsets initially because they were such a staple in the sport of BMX. These hubs have won so many races, and I'm proud to reintroduce them." The new hubs are sweet looking, and we know that they'll perform like no other with Mark behind the development. Mark is an Old/Mid School BMXer who believes in the grassroots of BMX, and is a guy who 'knows his BMX', so you'll be able to expect high quality and high performance from these storied hubs.
