    2014 Carbine 275

    Anyone have more beta than this? The gray/yellow colorway is hawt. Curious what else they have lined up. Nice to see direct mount FD and some other tweaks.

    I figured that since the Carbine 29er had full internal cable routing, that the 2014 Carbine 275 would get that upgrade. I was ready to sell my old one to upgrade. I guess Ill have to wait.

    Are the G1 dropouts on this the 275 conversion version (extended backwards and upwards) or have Intense changed the rearend to be 275 specific now?

    I read that the rear end has not changed. Still using the conversion dropouts. I see no reason why they would change the rearend other than the disc brake mounting tabs.

    Other than the paint it sounds like the changes that were introduced this spring/summer. I mean it already had a direct mount FD, ISCG tabs and internal dropper routing.

    I asked because the rear end on the Tracer 275 changed and uses regular G1 dropouts now. I asked Sam at Intense and you can't bolt a T275 rear end on to a T2. I thought they might have changed the Carbine 275 rear as well but it does not appear they did.

    Exactly! Thats why I figured they add internal routing for all cables like the Carbine 29er
