    Thin Blue Line FS bike?

    I have a chance to pick up a full suspension suspension frame--it looks like it has a decent amount of travel and a pretty good design--anyone know anything about the bike? There are not many reviews of it on MTBR.

    Here is a pic:

    They are good bikes

    One of my friends has one (not the same model). I do all of the wrenching on his bike so I can say the pivots are good and frame quality is as good as any big brand bike I have worked on such as Trek, Giant, Kona. He crashes hard from time to time and has not damaged the frame in any way yet. Make sure you check the pivots and bushings for any slop because getting new pivot parts might be tough if not imposible.

    This might be a stupid question, but the bike on the last pic wouldn't by any chance be a rebadged Intense frame ?

    I don't belive so

    They were not expensive enough to be Intese frames. If you look closely you can see the down tube is triangular I don't know if Intense ever did that.
