I'm going through a retro streak and decided to dismantle my Intense Spider, put the nice parts on my old-school single pivot Haro, and race it this weekend...introducing THE XC KILLER. I feel fast just looking at it.
I'm thinking about flipping the stem or swapping it with another to get that high rise bar a bit lower and I've recently come to the conclusion that the Shimano Hollowtech cranks are stiffer than the Race Face Deus... maybe going to get a set of XT cranks instead.
Other than that, this bike leaves NOTHING to be desired for a do-it-all XC bike... I'm glad I kept it after buying the Spider frame.
Anyone else have XLS pics to post?
