    Kind of interesting how many photos/pictures of the M1... a Horst link bike. Not so many of the Specialized. Back then, I wanted to ride a Horst link bike sooooo bad. Now, not so much.

    My best guess would be that the M1's are relatively easy to service, and those that cracked, cracked back in the day. The FSR represented a maintenance nightmare back then, and broke left and right (still does).

    Also the M1's didn't all break the same place, so spares were a bit easier to get.

    The M1 I showed a pic of earlier in this thread, though suffers the lack of such luxury, as those were made in relatively small numbers. The later models were made in huge numbers.

    I have 3 older Intenses and they are all FSR. They work very well in my opinion. But I like fully active as much as possible and not really interested in stable platform. The only bike that I have that isn't FSR is a Canfield Bros and that seems to work well too and is a Parallel or LA Link style suspension.

    I think that it slightly resembles a new Shimano Saint rear derailleur. I also have no clue who made it either but whoever it was seems to have known a thing or two about dh.

    2000 Titus

    The Quasi Ti is what I rode in 1998 and 1999. In 2000, I upgraded to the orange Quasi DH.
    Those were the days I guess.

    yeah, wow good eye, I kinda forgot about that shock...It was a great upgrade from what I remember. The MC is long gone, I cracked the frame and sold the warranty replacement and picked up a Joker which got the Monster T. Still have that bike..

    I did loads of riding on my old school Trek from 1996, but the weight of the bastard killed it for me. It now hangs in the workshop on the wall, it makes a better paper weight.
    For those that dont know, Intense is having a parking lot sale on on Feb 24-25. See their face book for more info. Loads of bargains, old stock, discontinued models, ex team parts, forks wheels shocks, tires and most importantly. 2011 Demo bikes.

    Pics will be on the way in the next couple months! Just finished my Sunday build so the super 8 is next. Starting to get parts slowly but surely. I want to have it ready for opening day at mountain creek. Thanks again for such a sweet ride!

    I dig this thread. I too am old school. I just picked up an 04 or 05 santa cruz bullit frame. Thing is thrashed but there isn't any structural damage so I'm gonna give it a fresh paint job. The problem is I have to get the rear triangle separated from the rest of the frame to do a good job but I'm not quite sure how. I pulled the bolt out as shown in the picture but I'm not exactly sure how it is all held together and how to get it separated safely. Anybody know how?

    Soak it with penetrating oil overnite and press it out. I'm pretty sure all you need is a socket the same size or if you are going to replace the pin just get a long bolt and pound it out. You may get away doing it that way without damaging the pin threads.

    Ah tyin to sell me your shock huh? It came with a 5th element on it so I'm gonna see how that performs. If it sucks, I will probably turn to a fox coil-spring. Good looks.

    no. loosen the bolt on the side of the bearing. in your photo if is on the right side. If you don't loosen that it will stay clamped to bearing. these are known as "pinch bolts"

    Your method worked good man. Thanks. It's tough when somethin is in so tight ya feel like if gonna break it but the penatrating oil loosened her up nicely.
