    Nice. I would try to go for the decals. What are you leaning towards...keeping them off?

    I like the decals on but I don't really want to spend $40 for new ones... I might try and see if I could just get the one on the downtube but I think they come in full sets.

    Sweeeet! Real 'works' finish! By leaving the decals and the head badge off you save like 10-15 grams!

    That would be sweet but I just bought some downtube decals from E2@CC. He had some 5.5 decals so they will be black with white outline. Thanks E2...

    Sorry, wishful thinking. I was looking around for those decals you are describing. They would be sweet.

    I made some of these by myself. The gold/black decals to match gold psylo race.

    Full filled with 6.6 then migrating to Slope Style for more. "Intense Slope Style Central"

    Remember our Dawg period ?

    I made the logo design with Adobe Illustrator, then print it out the black lines using epson printer with special gold paper made for inkjet, then my wife cut it around the logo by hand.
    Then apply the protective transparent sticker sheet over it.

    Those stickers look pretty sweet, I had some Intense downtube decals done here locally and they are cut from Green vinyl they look good, but not as flashy as yours....but they still add a bit of "one off" feel to the bike. I'll take some pictures of it and post soon.

    The wildcat sticker was little too flashy but I did that to kind of smudge the standing out gold Psylo Race. Now, with my Intense 6.6 white frame the decal (grey) is so perfectly matched with other things like AMSL1 has carbon and grey logo on white base, my crossmax sx rim, spokes and hbus are grey. So, for now, stock decals are perfect and I only added "Enduro" sticker to show my respect to Chris' business. I would stick CC, too though.

    From what I can tell from the pic you have darker spots around the welds. Did you tried to get rid of those?

    Not it isn't possible, looks at well...

    I think it is the model : FSA Orbit Z 1.5R Internal Reducer 1-1/8 1.5



    It is not too small for this frame on the internal height level ?

    Daugh! I was looking at the wrong photo. I think I should stop posting.

    I tried Cane Creek XC Flush and for my small frame size, the shoulder of my fork was hitting. But I would use this on the top cup to reduce the stack height. Ringht now I'm using flush on the top and regular XC on the bottom.

    I could have polished them out a little better with the dremel but my patience was wearing thin.

    It looks very nice! I'd be interested to know if it stays shiny or if the aluminum oxidises and becomes dull again. Please let us know.

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

    Isn't it funny, the aluminum around the welds looks darker even after the surface is pretty smooth? They must introduce quite a bit oxygen during welding.
    BTW: You can protect the finish with Neverdull or this wax some guys use on their car rims.

    Nice setup. Please let us know how the VPP suspension reacts to the torque that the Rohloff speedbone introduces into the swingarm.

    There are no negative effects provoked by the rohloff.
    The reaction of the suspension is the same as with a derailleur. I could ride both setups (rohloff and derailleur) and I felt no difference.

    Ride on!

    6.6

    Before I built the bike I was worried that the Travis would slack the bike out too much but I'm actually really happy with it. It feels perfectly balanced. The Travis is 572mm A-C and it fits perfectly with this frame and my riding style. Since this frame has such a long seattube I would actually prefer a little taller fork (but I doubt that happens). I measured the bottom bracket height at 14.25". I've only taken it out for about 3 hours and hit a mix of jumps and did some xc. Its totally awesome on singletrack - corners like a beast and climbs like a goat. On the freeride/jumps/technical it feels pretty good, I was impressed by the shock but the long seattube is going to take some getting used too. This shouldn't be a problem and should be relatively easy to get used too and also improve my riding style. I haven't ridden any pure downhill yet but will probably get to the mountains in the next few weeks.

    I bought the Headlock seperately.

    ...but aren't the discs a lil too small? Or do they fit for your usage... :-)

    @will 6.6: pornicious setup will!! i only would replace the 3rd chainring with a bash


    Hey guys, i'm new to this forum! And i am a fresh and proud new owner of a 6.6 now, finally!

    Sadly still missing some parts to finish my baby, but here is a small gallery from what i got so far ( http://teeworks-net.de/intense/photogallery)

    one question i got: why some of the bikes have those "custom easton" stickers, and some do not - including mine?!? ...is this lazyness from the factory or what? *grr*

    seeya all! greets from munich, germany!

    that stealth is amazing! F-117 action! so, yes your bike is LESS stealth if it's got the custom easton sticker anyway....

    Hey Lion, how does your 6.6 fare with the Gustav's? Have you found them to be overkill or are they ok. Presume you are using it for AM/FR use.
