    Where are you buying one? I am interested in it too. I saw it on their website and it looks like it's exactly what I want.

    I'm Italian and in Italy Cove bikes are not imported. I'm going to buy it on a european website...
    Now I own an Intense SS, but this was not money well spent: bearings wear quickly, pivots get loose and the rear end is flexy... Now I just want to be sure that the frame I'm interested has not the same problems...

    -how does it ride?

    The feels similar to a Shocker in that the angles are quite similar except for the seat angle, just a little less travel.

    -is the frame strong? Does it last?

    Tough as nails.

    -does bearings last?

    On the hardest ridden bikes (Shocker and STD) the upper seatstay 628 bearing is a little rough at the end of the year. Other that that, expect no issues.

    -wich chainguide did you install?

    An E-13 SRS or similar single ring guide fits fine with little or no modification. The E-13 DRS will work but requires some special attention.

    -any information about '09 model?

    No changes thus far, just different color options.

    -how much does it weigh?

    Kinda chunky, a tough lighter than a Shocker.
