    One of my friend have a (99?) Balfa Nouveau Riche all custom build with a Super Monster T, very wide rims (26"f/24"r), maybe 2-3" wide, pneumatic gear shifting (was made by Shimano I think), and highly tuned DHX rear shock. The bike is just so damn cool, it rips down DH rock gardens and gnarly drops like butter. I wish I could post a picture, but he doesn't want to have pics of his setup around, so I respect that.

    Sick ride though

    Nice. Still miss my '00 RM6.

    Lots of them broke, but I got 10,000 miles out of mine.

    That bike could hold a wheelie for a mile.

    I was misled into thinking it was a talent that I had as the rider, until I got a new bike and couldn't get the front wheel off the ground.

    i havnt rode it much, just enough to see what the suspension was like and to make sure my howitzer bb wouldnt effect it. yeah.....theres no room. so i had to file down the left cup a bit to make it fit.

    2005 DHR with some newer parts + improvements:


    • drilled to slacken the angle
    • huge flat Blackspire 808 for better handling
    • Thomson DH stem: short, low, and wider clamp area
    • Straitline platform pedals for more grip


    Looking for a Ti spring for the shock and need new rims

    2006 Cove Shocker

    It does not meet the 10 year age limit mentioned before, but is hard to argue that stuff like this does not age pretty fast. Every year there are new and wonderful reasons to ditch the old bike and hop on something new. What I think is most awesome about this thread is that most, if not all, of these bikes are still being used regularly. What better testament to engineering is there than longevity. This not so svelte, but oh so rad, little number came in to my life in September and I look forward to many years of fun on board my electric blue Shocker.

    That thing is awesome. Is that some kind of steering damper? Never heard of the fork or shock. Looks like all air or elastomer. Great collectors piece. It should be in a museum.
    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    I'm a huge Intense fan and have been for years. That's an absolutely sweet M1. I can't help but crack a smile when I see one of the originals in good original condition.
