    Unlike the old AL ARC's this one is going to be extremely overbuilt as per my instructions. Frank said it's going to be about 45% heavier and thicker than a typical ARC.

    I rode a 93 Pro FRO in my racing days...I was too afraid of the ARC for my size, Yeti recommended going with the FRO though I thought the ARC was about perfect back then!

    I restored the Pro FRO and still ride it if I need a chiropractic adjustment! :P

    One would think that if you really need the seatpost extended that far, you need a larger frame. Even a Thomson won't stand up very long to some serious landings without bending or breaking extended that far, especially if you bottom out the shock.

    Nice bike though - love those forks.....

    Looks a bit more than it is, rear wheel is on a bump, its a 410mm seatpost, and it is 3cm above the minimum insert.

    generic chiner carbon, plus parts bin and some new goodies. Loving the Velocity Blunt 35 wheelset, gives a nice tire profile.

    Yeah, found it used. Got, what I feel, is a great deal on it. I looked, daily, for 4-5 weeks before I pulled the trigger. Yes, this is the XT Build. No Dropper post. Niner carbon seat post.

    Really been enjoying this bike. #pedaldamnit

    I wouldn't own one (single speed), but it is interesting.
    Love the belt drive.
    Please don't put solid red grips on it.....
    Matching tires would make it more visually appealing, but if it works for you...

    Funny, I have those in my fleet! My Carbine is staying, along with the LES as SS, but my 429 is going... Love it as much as the others, but since SSing and 29+, I hardly ever ride my FS bikes any more.

    Change that rear shock on your Carbine and I bet you will start riding it more! My bike was night and day difference.

    Yeah, I did and it is a massive improvement. I doesn't have anything to do with the bike, just the type of riding I prefer most of the time, these day.

    What fork are you running on your LES? Glad to see a white fork, as I was thinking about a white pike if the Fox 120 goes with the 429.

    Thats a awesome rear shock, I went with the Monarch for the cost but may swap to a CC later.

    The fork is a Sid XX 100mm, although I think I will swap the damper to a RCT3 or the whole fork for a 120 Sid RCT3.

    Started a new build today. A 2014 carbine 29 in short travel mode with a 140mm Pike up front. A -1 deg angleset keeps the HA at 67 deg with the short travel fork. I hope it will be a fun & fast trailbike.

    Here are some pictures of the routing:
    2014 Intense Tracer T275 Carbon: Reviewed - NSMB.com
    The carbine 29 is the same, except the reverb stealth cable which exits at the bottom of the downtube on the carbine 29. You need to bend the tip of the cable to get it through on the C29.
    There are internal guides for the housings in the frame, so it is super easy to push trough the cable housings!

    Ok so if i take Carbine to build i will have option to route stealth cable totally internally (trough seat tube/next to bb/through "main tube with INTENSE logo" - assuming there is no FR/D)

    Well wanted a XC bike cause I have a bronson with bontrager G5 tires that dont like to take on long rides so I almost got a new scott scale 750, but a friend had this giant anthem X 29er 2 2012 in really good condition (already took it to services and checked the suspension everything works fine) it has deore brakes, X7/X5 built reba rl and monarch rt and with some crank brother mallet 1 is exactly on 27pounds.....man huge improvement from my bronson that on 32 I think.

    So got it for $700 and will upgrade to slx/xt maybe some wheels for next year, will see but Im happy for my XC ride.... In 2012 I had a XTC 29er 0 and I do love giant 29er doble suspension bikes but sold it to buy a Downhill bike, I really love my downhill.
