    07 66 is too cool.
    How is setting at 180 mm travel working out?

    As the Geo is ment to be ridden with max. 170mm, i couldn't feel any big nervousness when i travel it to 180, but i ride it most of the time with 160mm, so i have no really big experience whit it by now. I'm about to test it on weekend furthermore, i'll tell ya afterwards.

    greets

    I need 100% Honest opionion.

    I am deciding between a 6.6 and a UZZI. I only freeride and do no XC riding. I live in a Flat area where climbing is not an issue and am lookign for something to pedal around easily but also can take some small hucks and jumps

    I see not many people run coil shocks on these and most run 2-3 ring combo with Clip in pedals which makes me beleive these bikes are catering towards a XC type rider.

    My main concern about the 6.6 is that it may be too light as it was designed to be light. So I am curious of more of you NON XC type riders who own the 6.6 feel that the UZZI would be a better choice. Grant it I know the 6.6 is a all around bike..but I am looking for the more aggressive type riders opinion.

    maybe hold out for the new 6.6 Slopestyle. It should be pretty bad ass. Here an older photo of me jumping my 6.6. NO clipless pedals here! Ride On- E2

    I just got an email from intense stating production to begin in mid summer for the 6.6 SS..Honestly I love intense but the 6.6 SS is a Transistion bottelerocket so I would go for the lesser priced Transistion if I was set on that type of frame.

    thx for you opinions I am thinking UZZI is my better choice

    ok no the 6.6SS is not a BR. yes..application wise, but not the suspension characteristics or the travel. the Vpp will scoot over the rough easier than a faux-bar because of the rearward travel.

    as for the 6.6, I ride with platforms and 1x9 setup, but I do climb on the bike since i don't shuttle. You mention that you still need to pedal around on the flats.. depending on ur weight the 6.6 might be fine... and how big are your small hucks?
    I've cased doubles and 5ft to slight tranny hasn't been a big deal so far for mine... and i'm about 167 in gym clothes.
    Also keep in mind that the HA that intense lists is for a Manitou Nixon.. with a 36van or 66, the HA will be maybe a degree slacker.

    Being that it is one degree slacker, I assume those forks are about an inch taller. That also means you'll be raising the bottom bracket by nearly half an inch - that's a lot!
    May the air be filled with tires!

    Very nice build. I just put a new 36 Talas on my 6.6 and Crossmax SXs. I cannot believe how light they are! IMHO, running XTR is a little bit of waste of money esp if you ride you bike with any intention of using it for its worth. This year's X9 performs top-notch and the cost of replacement should something break is less.

    But good build on ye, any pics to post?

    " IMHO, running XTR is a little bit of waste of money esp if you ride you bike with any intention of using it for its worth. This year's X9 performs top-notch and the cost of replacement should something break is less"

    Thanks. Today's ride was great, I really like the bike.

    What x9 components are you talking about...the r. der and shifters? If so, these are parts that I seldomly need to replace. Sram's cassette and f. der have proven themselves worthless and disposable to me.

    If you ride smooth, don't bash everything, and don't do drops to flat xtr will last. Plus it's super light and disputably, it offers shifting performance second to none.

    I run XO shifters and r. der on my 5 Spot and it has lasted 2 seasons. Good stuff. I run an xtr cassete and f. der on that bike too because of the increased performance.

    The wheels are reasonably light. I hope the rear hub is diesel. The rear hub on my Crossmax Sl's required frequent attention. (mineral oil every 12 rides or so) The durability of the SL's hoops was amazing.

    I am running last year's x9 on my 6.6 (2005 x9 on my 29er) and this year's x9 on my Dirtbag. I think the shifting is even better on this year's x9 than any previous year's. I agree with you, however, that SRAM's cassettes are ****. I am quite a bit bigger than you and end up bashing stuff (isn't that why you got a 6.6 in the first place?) with the way I ride and type of riding I do in Colorado, so I end up breaking parts (r. der.) so XTR is not worth it for me. XTR is also geared (no pun intended) towards racers who can bash the crap out of their parts and have Shimano replace them at no cost, not avg. joe's such as me. But that is JMHO.

    Glad you enjoyed the SXs, I can't wait to get them out and give them a good test ride. Cheers. Plus, where are the pictures?

    No rides for the new 6.6

    As the Colo front rangers know the trails have been, wet, icy, snowy, cold, and basicly terrible. The good thing about this was, that i had to send my Lyric back to RS, due to losing 15mm of travel on my first bike path ride.

    I need to go downhill to break these discs in, way to slippery right now.

    What is the consensus on the intense seatpost QR, it seems a little weak. I am thinking about getting a Salsa.

    I'm riding Fruita and Moab the first weekend in May, hopefully i can get this bike broken in, before that.

    There sure are some sweet rides out there, really loving the white frame with the Crossmax SX wheels. Am expecting my medium red to be finished on Saturday. Went for the Crossmax SX wheels too so its nice to finally see a picture of a 6.6 with them on. I bought without riding the 6.6 so the bike has some high expectations to live up to. Had to sell my SC Heckler, SC Bullit and a vintage electric piano to pay for it, but judging by the way everyones been talking about the 6.6 it should be worth it.

    Off to Spain for some riding in 4 weeks so havent got long to get it dialled. Any tips on setup of the Evolver ISX6 would be welcome.

    Will post pictures as soon as I've got the bike.

    I've got an ISX-6 but on my 5point5 and I'm loving it. Best shock I've ridden. I was a bit daunted when I first got it and started a thread on "Let's Talk About Shocks" asking about setup help but in fact it is quite simple. You can find the thread here.

    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    So, what piano did you sell? Rhodes? Wurlitzer?
    I wasn't sure about Crossmax SX when I bought them, but after hard riding doing hacks and dirt jumping, they are holding up very good. I'm not using them for downhilling though, but SX is good all round wheels.

    As for ISX6 specifically on 6.6, you can dial it to very wide range of ride feel.
    You can make it very firm for city rides or you can make it very plush. I did some stairway drops (I assume you would ride hard because you used to own Bullit) but the shock had never been bottomed out yet (Allmountain SL1 did, I'm still working on the tuning for it).

    great looking bike guys!

    im planning to get one soon, just a question..im 5'9 but torn on either getting a small or medium sized frame, according to the intense website i should get the medium size but i came from a small size frame and am worried the bigger size will affect my riding, what do you guys suggest? thanks!

    hoping to post a pic of my future bike soon

    regards
    miles

    I'm 5'9, 30 in inseam and a medium is good on me with a 70mm stem. 50mm definitely gets a bit cramped..

    A bit OT, but has anyone bought a used 6.6 here? It seems like on the other forums,
    there's always frames changing hands, but the intenses always seem sparkling new.
    Just wondering what kind of market is out there for used intenses.

    I am just shy of 5'8" with a 29" inseam and have come down from a medium to a small. The medium felt like a cruising bike to me whereas the small feels a lot more nippy. Whilst both are really good bikes and you won't go wrong with either I personally would go for the small if you lean towards tech/XC/AM where there are lots of quick and sharp turns, you really need to work/pump the bike to get the most out of the track and generally like a snappy ride. The medium on the other hand felt a bit more stable, more like an SUV as opposed to a sporty number and therefore more suited to all round XC/AM. As I said though they can both do the same thing, it's just that I found the small did certain things better than the medium for my style of riding. Hope this helps

    I'm considering building a similar bike to replace my 5.5, although it may be a while, since I want to get my M3 together, first.

    How much does your bike weigh?
    May the air be filled with tires!

    Thanks! I really like it. It weighs 30.5lbs on a digi scale at the bike shop. It pedals amazingly well for a bike with this much travel.

    I got mine used.... but it was basically brand new (except for the price tag). I don't think you see too many of them on the used market because they're usually so well liked.
    Mine's a small, I'm 5'7". Works for me, but I wouldn't want to be too much taller on a small. 5'9" might be the cutoff...

    thanks guys for the replies, now im really confuse hehe hope i can try out a small and medium to compare handling and pedaling traits here, i ride tech/XC/AM and a little freeriding (4-6ft drops) but i have to pedal approx 30km of paved and 10 km of rough road with uphills before reaching singletracks, a lbs is selling a used 6.6 and the owner is giving me a good deal really looks tempting im just worried it might have come from the batch with the "suck down" problem

    I've gone through few and found that Reset Racing is far better than others.

    My new 6.6

    This is it. Finally got my 6.6 after having had a nightmare trying to find suitable tyres. Am really pleased with the build although I'll be getting a shorter cage rear mech. Have just been for a couple of short rides on some local singletrack but am already really impressed with the bike.

    BTW: it was a Rhodes that I sold.

    Rhodes is great. I remember a guy with the DynoRhodes at Club in Waikiki sounding like heaven. The space you made from selling Rhodes should be a good place for your new 6.6.

    My Rhodes (73 stage piano) was in the dining room which funnily enough is exactly where my 6.6 is at the moment. My wife has served the bike with an eviction notice though so it will be moving to the shed at the weekend. She cant seem to appreciate the beauty of it. No doubt I will be having sleepless nights worrying about it being stolen.

    the most important thingto consider when doing reducers is the stack height.. If the reducers have too much stack height to them.. it will totally change the handling of the bike and with the 6.6, i dont think you would want to change that.. go with the e13.. i believe they have the lowest.. or at least very minimal stack height and E13 stuff is very nice.. . the problem solver.. now way.. junk.

    Your right..... if I had to do it all over again and had options (rather than purchasing a build kit) I would get XO(shifters and r. der) ...except for the fd and cassette which I would still go XTR. (the Sram offerings here seem to be bit less refined) The XO I have on my 5 Spot seems to be a little less finicky. I'm not sure if it is because of the increased travel on the 6.6 or not. Breck Seth, I still hate you and your white Nomad.

    Never had chance to take it to serious mountain ride, yet.
    I took it to dirt jumping for few times and ride it everyday around city.

    Red 6.6 must be hot. I had a baby blue 5.5 but got stolen.

    I thought of Syncros white rim but my wheels are Crossmax SX and nothing can compare to its burliness while being light. The logos and the XTR components are grey, so white/black/grey/red scheme works for me.

    You know what, maybe I don't need it to be tubeless for downhilling, so white rims by Syncros might be good. The white DT hub looks hot but I would have to go with black Hadley hub.

    That's a sweet lookin' 6.6! I like the SX wheels on there, too.

    Mine should be built up shortly. I had a last minute change of plans. I was building up a set of red King hubs on black DT 5.1 rims, but last night as I finished lacing the wheels, I decided that blue Hadleys would look better (same as on my M3). So the red King wheels will go on my DJ bike, and I'll now work on lacing up some blue Hadleys (I already have a rear hub from a previous build).

    I got one of the '08 Fox TALAS 36 forks. The quick release is exactly like the old Rock Shox Tulio system on the old Psylo forks (still have one of those, too).
    May the air be filled with tires!

    SX wheel on the rear gets off true time to time, but the nipple are so rensponsive to fix the bents. I often land side ways after giving some hip to the rear but it is pretty much holding up good. Very light and tuff. Colored Hadleys are hot. I might get the red hadley.

    So, you are talking about your build on your 6.6? Are you changing around things since you have the M3 now? 08 Talas should be dope. Although my AMSL1 is working really good.

    I like the other quote on GM/Honda. I have the old Stepwagon.

    Yeah, I'm talking about building up a 6.6. I'll have a complete fleet of Intense bikes soon (well, already do), which will include an 5.5, 6.6, UZZI VPX, M3, and UZZI SLX (the girlfriend now rides). Yes, I ride all of them...

    BTW, I should be coming to jp at the end of July, so if you want to buy some parts - such as some red Hadleys - in the US, you can have them shipped to me, and I'll bring them when I come (small parts preferably). Actually, I may be able to get another set of those hubs cheaper than retail through an LBS.

    If traffic and driving were the same here in the US, I would probably be driving either a Step Wagon or a Spike, although I really like the new Crossroad. I only saw some of the preproduction units while I was there last, but I'm sure they look close to the same.

    Thanks Blaster but E2@CC takes care of me well, so I'm fine with the parts.
    I was thinking maybe I want custom built Oakley Radar but I can make the custom build php don't work any more at their site. I was thinking to build Radar with my 6.6 color shceme.

    I might ask you to bring it in if that is not much problem, but my wife's parents can send some stuff from Hawaii, too.

    Just drop by when you can and let's go to Fujimi together, I hear they have reasonably good bike to rental now.

    The rebound has gone twice, the compression once, and now the seals have blown and there is oil pissing everywhere.

    when they work they are great, just getting a bit fed up with it, but from what i have heard, the totems are no better?

    I've got a 5point5 and I'm using a Manitou Nixon Super with 145mm. If I got a 6.6 ( which I've been thinking about ) I wouldn't hesitate to get the 160mm. version with 20mm. Hex Lock axle. I'm a hefty 220lbs. plus and the fork is bomb proof, very stiff and very plush. Did I mention light. They are claiming 4.4lbs. for the 160mm.

    Ronnie.
    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    Snowball, your 6.6 is like mine!

    For some reason, I rarely post my bikes in the picture threads, because I usually take the bike out and beat on it for a while before I remember to take pics.

    Here is my relatively new 6.6.
    I've seen many people complain about the cable routing. After building mine, I understand the challenges. Most people tend to route the cables/lines through the upper link. When I do cable routing, I always remove the shock and cycle the suspension to see what happens with the cables (although I was lazy one time, and I didn't do that with my VPX). Running the cables through the link is bad! It kinks the cables, and it will cause significant rub on the seat tube (which I'm sure many of you know).

    By the way, I really like the Fox Tulio...eh hem...new quick release system on the new 36 forks. Those who don't know my Tulio reference should know that this system is exactly the same as the Rock Shox 20 mm quick release system on the 2000-model Psylo models.

    Although I only have a few rides on the bike, including the McKenzie trail in Oregon (on a recent road trip to Whistler), the bike is fully broken in. So far, the bike is pretty much what I had expected - it's a long legged XC bike. It's not a hucker by any means (or at least it doesn't feel like it). My biggest complaint is that the rear end is as flexy as a soggy french fry.

    You may have also seen my rant on the build up (non-reamed seat tube from Intense): Quality Control Rant

    really? I think's it not a bad hucker, once I dialled the dhx the way I like. I put a 66 and the head angle feels exactly where i want it, while the frame is low enough to keep out of my business at speed. The rear end is soggier than an old sock, I agree. It slips around so much I'm constantly checking my rear tire, seeing if the seat is loose, checking someone didn;t slip jello into my shorts, etc.

    I find the rear end on mine plenty stiff enough. It's great for jumping too...

    I don't think I'd want to chuck it off any big drops (6ft plus) unless I knew it well enough to know I can land super smooth.

    Incidentally, I've got an RP23 shock on mine rather than the DHX air.

    I also used to ride a santa cruz bullit. I reckon that was a sturdier bike and a better jumper, but didn't handle nearly as well on fast rocky descents.

    Blaster, I had the cables like that but didn't like it as the cables rubbed my legs when compressed. So I went through the link and wrapped the seat tube with that 3M clear tape to protect it.

    Hey guys, just a question for ya...

    Most of the bikes on this thread look like they're setup for some pretty serious FR action, in fact my Uzzi VPX was probably built lighter duty than some on here! Do any of you run a more XC/AM kind of setup or is this not what the bike is about?

    Cheers

    Upset Sticky

    Why isn't the 6.6 photo album a sticky?

    How you doing Jeff? It's just to bug you! Besides 6.6s are not that important.

    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    I run mine XC/AM and it's a great bike for it. Climbs incredibly well, descends even better and handles like I've always wanted a bike to handle.

    As for soggy rear ends, mine seems to be pretty tight really, no more flex than there was in my Rocky Mountain ETS-X

    ...a bike that is famous for having a flexy rear-end.

    don't think there's much debate about the 6.6 being a bit too flexy in the rear.

    Here's my 6.6, all ready for a trip to Whistler! It's usually set up for more all around riding, but a few modifications later, it's ready for anything at Whistler.

    Dual role this week

    Like cb, I'm taking my 6.6 to Sunday River for some DH fun this weekend. First time this place has been open for bikes for 3+years, and only 2 hours away -- woo-woo

    Normally I ride my Socom but loaned it to a bud who's a serious DH racer currently w/o a DH bike. So I transferred my Travis 203 onto the 6.6 and slid the fork up in the triple clamps to get the head angle a little more realistic. And then put my DH tire and wheelset on for some added rockk garden capability. Almost looks "right"

    Hey, look at the head angle, it looks like a downhillbike.
    I like that but Intense don't recommend putting triple crown to be used with 6.6, though.
    You are brave!

    Hey cbharping - Please post a ride report about the lyric. I need some input from the ladies. Also what spring are you riding and are there any downtube contact issues with the fork and your small 6.6? I have a white one too, have fun at whistler!

    What bike? I just see a fork, handlebar, saddle and wheels?

    Surprise!

    Wow, I just got back from opening day at Sunday River. The invisible bike rocks! Set up this way the 6.6 is "nearly" as capable as the Socom for flowy singletrack and rocky DH challenges.

    I won't take chances on the triple crown, but the it 6.6 goes okay for downhilling with 200mm travel, I could go with Travis Single!! Maybe I don't even mind the BB being high because I'm used to that with 2001 Stab Primo.

    Travis Single seems to be very efficiently designed as far as the A to C is concerned.

    Wheelbase

    Is 45" for this large, my medium Socom is 44" -- As for the dual crown issues. This fork design is actually easier on the headtube, in my opinion. I don't think the prohibition of dual crown on specific frames applies to the stresses from the fork design as much as the intended use of a dual crown. Since I'm a fairly mellow DH rider, I don't think my fork choice will stress the frame past what a single crown fork would do under a hard riding all mountain application. That said; sliding the fork "up" in the triple clamps could make the axle to crown equal to any XC fork, and also steepen the head angle as much as you wanted, to a limit, while still retaining the 203mm of travel.

    Peachy, I could slide another inch of fork up.

    This thing rides DH fantastic!
