    Man, every time I hear the term "Carbine" or "27.5", my whole psychie jerks to the right like Dug the dog when we hears "Squirrel".

    Anybody got any photos of the tyre clearance on the Carbine around the chain stays behind the BB?
    Mud clearance is kind of critical here in the muddy UK.

    Carbine 27.5

    27,5 is the perfect wheel size for montainbiking!!

    The carbine is fantastic and i look forward to see more and more new 27.5 bikes.

    I spoke with Intense about a week ago about this. I was told that it is not for sure that they will be released but they seemed like it was most likely going to happen. They still need to do some testing and if everything goes well, they would be released in a month or so.

    I'd rather wait for them to be tested than be the actual test mule on my dollar. From what I've read, Scott is riding them on a Carbine, and riding the aluminum prototype as well. I'm sure if they pass Sharp's standards, they'll pass mine.

    OK Jeff, enough with this silly wheel nonsense - now get back to work on my carbon M9 (or at least make one for Ragot!).

    Another vote for a 650B Carbine SL. I don't care much for G1 dropouts though.
    Although from a manufacturing perspective, one frame using different dropouts for 2 different wheel sizes would be less expensive than 2 different frames
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    But I think that created a frame for 27.5 " has specially designed geometry (see the height of the BB drop for example), changing only thing that the dropouts would not.

    Make carbon long travel 29ers better rather than this 25mm bigger than 26" wheel size or finish 2951! It has been several years now. Where is it?

    G1 options?

    So will the new 27.5 modified dropouts have both options for either 142 or 135 axles?

    I had great news this weekend meaning that a bike purchase in the near future will be within my budget.

    I am real interested in the Carbine 27.5 and perhaps the Tracer.

    Mr. Intense I'm wondering if you can give any word on the expected availability of production versions of these? Are we taking Fall or next year? Also is the price in line with current. Carbine and Tracer otherings?

    Tracer 275 & Carbine

    We have been riding these bikes for awhile now and had unveiled them @ Sea Otter feeling pretty confident the wheel size made sense & there was finally some industry support& consumer want to back it up.
    In short we are loving these bikes and the fact that the Tracer is made in house we can react quickly and should see production in he future. the 27.5 G1 drop outs are being tested on the Carbine in the lab before we release them but it should be soon.This really adjusts the geo on the Carbine well and even with a dedicated 27.5 150mm fork the numbers are good & you can run real trail tires , we have been running 2.35s front & rear.It does help a bit to run a straight steerer and a zero stack HS on the carbine.Getting caught up in the whole wheel size naming thing 650b , 27.5 etc. with the bigger tires it is really closer to 28 and middle of the road just looks & feels right.

    X2, if mr. Intense wants more of my money he's going to need to make a carbon version of my T29. I'm not against 650b, the more size options the better. it's just not my cup-o-tea.

    They are beautiful though, in fact all intense bikes are very good looking machines. Keep up the good work!
