    If it is true, i will replace it with FSA headset?

    Please advise.....
    Thanks
    This from Intense's website:

    Some observations on the One Point Five interface standard:
    1. The One Point Five standard defines the diameter and tolerance for the bore in the head tube – the standard specifically does not cover the diameter of the headset cups – to quote from the standard drawing, ”HS CUP OD NOT SPECIFIED”. The diameter specified for the head tube is 1.9516” – 1.9532” (49.57mm – 49.61mm).
    2. As manufacturers are free to define their own requirements for the cup OD, both the requirements and the actual parts tend to vary. Cane Creek specifies an OD of 1.9567” – 1.9579” (49.70mm – 49.73mm). We have had experience with two Cane Creek Double Xc Flush headsets causing the head tube to crack on the 6.6. These cups measured 1.9579” to 1.9585” (up to .0006” over Cane Creek’s high limit tolerance). It should also be noted that the Cane Creek is a “deep” headset (20mm vs. 10mm insertion depth).
    3. Here at Intense, we tend to use the FSA Orbit Z 1.5R in this application. Although the FSA drawing allows the OD of the cups to be 1.9547” to 1.9587” (49.65mm – 49.75mm), the units we have measured run 1.9545” – 1.9565”. The insertion depth of these cups is 10mm. We have had no problems in using this head set.
    4. Standard engineering practice for a locational press fit for this diameter part is to have .0004” to .0020” interference. While the actual size of the FSA sets as compared to the 1.5 Standard head tube diameter yields an interference of .0013” - .0049”, the larger Cane Creek sets come in at .0047” - .0069”. We are very concerned that the additional interference is causing undue stress in the head tube material.
    5. Due to the above concerns, Intense Cycles strongly recommends against using any headset with an OD above 1.9565”. This specifically refers to the Cane Creek Double X series, as well as any other head set creating an interference of .0050 or larger.

    Hi, I'm getting small size frame, too and wanted to ask you a question.
    I see you use FSA headset and how is the clearance on the fork crown and the downtube?

    Hi,

    I am considering the coil... how do you like it so far, and would you use this if someone handed you a air?

    Thanks!

    It was a voluntary choice, after a test with the DHX air. I use my other bikes for other purposes; a Ti Dean for short rides, a light (23lbs) Burner for raids, and this Intense for Alpines rides.
    The coil is amazing in such conditions...

    My brake cable chewed up frame

    I was wondering what people were doing with this. I see people have been putting some kind of protection there. Here is the damage to mine. Perhaps I will try that cable routing.

    polyurethane clear tape. similar to ones used in the hood of a car to protect it from stones. 3M makes a very good one. acrylic adhesive. i dnt have anything like that... wouldn't want to.

    Or you can reroute your cables entirely. .. Nomad/Socom style, or
    just loop below the lower pivot bearing of the upper link.

    Thank you, thank you. For some frames, small don't look that good but I think I agree with you that small 6.6 looks awesome. I don't have a scale now, so don't know how much this 6.6 weighs, but 5.5 with Nixon was strong to take jumps and light, about 14.5 kgs (though for xc riders 14.5 is not light but it is light to me considering the weight of the tires, 1.2kgs each).

    Thanks E2, but I just found out the headtube was crack!!!
    I'm taking it back to the LBS, but I used FSA headset like Intense told me....

    Mine is one of the earlier one with the 2005 FOX DHX Air. I wonder if earlier frame had some kind of mis-measurement of something, instead of blaming for the other incidents with Cane Creek haedsets.

    Who knows who's fault it really was, but i'm sure Intense will take care of you. Make sure your local shop greases the headtube before installing the cups(some shops don't). We've sold quite a few of these frames with Cane Creek H/S and haven't found them to be a problem, we've also done a number of them with FSA, and no issues there either. Ride On-E2

    The cup was greased really well.

    I just go back to 5.5 with Cane Creek S3 headset for now. I've done enough playing around with 5.5 but 5.5 was good after I fixed the rear triangle problem, then problem with King headset (replaced to S3) and it was riding really great.

    May as well add to the family of 6.6s here :)

    Have had mine since last Feb and have loved it every chance I get!

    Tossing up the year of the parts as some people have asked me what year certain things were...

    specs:

    frame: 06 small baby blue
    fork: 06 marz 66rc2x
    shock: 06 canecreek double barrel
    brakes: 07 avid juicy 5s with red dangerboy lever replacement
    headset: 06 canecreek doubleXc
    stem: 06 easton vice
    bars: 05: fsa dh400
    grips: 06 odi intense lockons
    post: 06 easton ec90 zero
    saddle: 06 wtb lazer v team
    der/shifter: 06 sram x9 w/trigger shifter
    crankset: 170 shim saint double ring (using a single ring with the envy double E chain device and a red e13 supercharger)
    peds: 06 shim 647s
    cass: 07 sram 990
    chain: 07 sram 990
    rubber: maxxis minion dh f/r 2.5
    front wheel: 26/36 mag30 laced to candy red hadley
    rear wheel: 26/36 mag 30 laced to candy red ti 108 hadley


    To be changed in the very near future:

    -have a new wheelset being built up right now: the hadleys listed above are getting laced into mav823s and will have michie dh16 (front) and dh24 (rear) in 2.2.
    -getting a ti coil to replace the stock steel for my double barrel
    -maybe giving the 6.6 a fresh coat of paint this winter...not sure yet.


    Now for the pics...





    yes, I like the candy red/baby blue colour combo :)

    enjoy!

    You guessed it right. SR71 to keep the handlebar height down.

    I even have a 31.8 diameter version of SR71 and it looks even more matched with the OnePointFive fat headtube of 6.6, so I will find a matching handlebar (probably Syncros white FR bar), so I can change the stem to 31.8 version.

    <made mistake on the reply button, so I will post it here again.>

    Now, Brendan emailed me right away and offered me to resolve the issue.
    No questions asked.
    I had never received this kind of prompt user support from any other bike manufacturers before. It makes me feel like I bought a Benz (sport type of course). I came across with people from component company's like Bob from manitou, Chris from Enduro and Brian from Therapy component are also should be noted that they provide superb services, but Kona, Iron Horse were so ignorant (although the distributor of Iron Horse in Japan is good).

    90% complete

    So I'm 90% through my winter project bike and thought it was time to post a picture. I really wanted to get a few shots of it before it gets ridden any more. It had it's maden voyage yesterday, a trail ride on Dec 31 in southern Ontario Canada isn't all that common. It almost took as long to clean it up as it did to ride it.

    DSC_0040.JPG

    Still needs a front derailleur. Seat post is off my DH bike so it will need to go back and be replaced with something lighter. I'll be changing out the pedals for clipless maybe CB single Ti with red springs. Lastly some red ano Dangerboy bar end plugs with the maple leaf etched in.

    Back in Black!

    After riding my tracer for five years, I decided to take advantage of the trade in program and upgrade to a 6.6. As I expected the craftmanship and attention to detail are amazing on this frame. I almost want to hang it on the wall in my living room! It truly is a work of art.
    This is my first attempt to post a picture, hope it works.

    Here's the photo after little updates.

    Intense, the distributor and the bikeshop got together to take care of my frame replacement! It'll be taken care of officially next week.

    no, no, this white one is going to be official replacement next week when they pay me back for the deposit. To get this white frame fast, I put down the whole amount for the frame.

    Thanks, I hope you are going to have good one with 6.6, too.
    I have the Gamut bash but with XTR 2007, I had to shave it off otherwise the crank was hitting the inner edge of the bash. I'm asking E2 if I can get Syncros chrome polished bash 36/38t.

    Polished...More or Less

    Just finished polishing the frame... Too snowy to ride so I found something to keep me busy. I went to AutoZone and picked up some $5 Mothers aluminum polish and started rubbing. There are still a few "cloudy" spots on it but I don't think I can take anymore rubbing. The CNC'd parts came out with a mirror finish but the seat and chain stays are still a little grey. Now I'm deciding if I should spend $40 on new decals. What do you think, leave 'em off or buy new ones?

    Looks fantastic mate, a real beauty. I must look for some of that polish here in the UK or something similar. Splash out on the decals they'll be the finishing touch. Was that all done by hand or was there some machinery involved? Real cool either way!

    Most of it was done by hand with the exception of a few stuborn spots and those hard to reach places and then I used a dremel with a polish bit. That polish works really well ... If I had to do it all over again I would have left the decals on and just been really cafeful around them.
