    I see an Intense 6.6 slopestyle in your future

    FYI: dual crowns are harder on the headtube and single crowns are harder on the steerer tube -> 1.5

    What about the strength of the top and bottom tubes against the fork tubes hitting when you crash? Of course you have the cushions, but I'm concerned about their strength.
    I was talking about Mojo Boxxcart Boxxer on my 6.6, but I was told by Intense that it would void warranty to use double crowns. But looking at your 6.6 with Travis, I totally dig the looks!

    I bet with you that 6.6 and Socom share the same top tube wall thickness. And yes, they dent when the fork stops hit in a crash. Like M1s, Sundays etc.
    Doesn't hurt the performance though, at least this is what I keep telling myself

    All true

    I'm just ignoring the premise behind the Socom of course. " VPX rear triangle w 6.6 front triangle", remember that? Because my long term DH ride is still the Socom. But the long travel fork, CCDB and fat tires make the sixer a very capable performer and a fun ride. Slopestyle -- hmmmm. I rode the Socom with a single crown fork on singletrack for a while and it was a blast. 1X9 works just fine

    How are the XTR brakes? I'm considering getting some for my AM rig, but I've heard bad things. They feel awesome at the local bike shop, but I haven't had any real ride time with em. How are yours? Any brake fade?

    I just mounted them up... no real trail test yet.
    Lever feel is not as solid as Louise FR or Oro Puro, though.

    i have the 2007 xtr brakes and find them awsome, needed a good bleed even from new and have heard that they cant be stored hanging up or they get air in them, but other than that they have very good modulation and way more braking power than my old hayes.
    My two cents, Mark

    Yes, it's a flawed design since we've all had to replace our top tubes multiple times. For your own safety, you might want to look at different frames.

    hey i was just stating my opinion and wondering if anyone thought anything of it. i haven't seen a frame with welds on the top before and i wasn't saying that there was anything wrong with the frame. i was just looking for others opinion, sorry if that hit a nerve.

    Monocock frames are usually that way, like foes, too ( I think).
    Like E2@CC doing a lot of downhilling and me doing some hacks all the time in the city, we don't see any problems.

    Damn Squeak, beat me to the punch. I'm going stealth black w/ '08 Talas as well. Little different build spec, but close enough. Nice looking rig! Also wondering how that cable routing is working out for you?

    The cable routing is working great... The stock routing gave me nothing but ghost shifts.

    Enjoy the new ride when you get it.

    I think squeak has it routed the way Intense should have done it, although I have mine on the inside of the swingarm (little cleaner that way). I also attached some cable guide to the downtube because of my aversion to zip ties.

    I've made a couple of changes in the last few weeks to my noble steed...

    Gone from Marzo AM1 SL to Manitou Travis 180 intrinsic (And consequently new headset and stem thanks to 1.5" steerer ), New wheelset (Hadley/819 running tubeless) and new bars, dangerboy levers

    Loving the feel of the travis over the AM1

    How it feels with 180mm fork?
    Does the fork lowers with 140mm travel? Is it comfortable enough to ride on flat surfaces?

    Finally got mine up and running. The brake lines are a little long as I had to pull them from my Socom that I'm building. (My spare set of Mags are toast, so I'm down to one set of brakes at the moment.)

    Yeah, this Industry Nine wheel set is sic. The buzz from the rear hub when it's rolling sends a shiver down my spine every time I hear it. I'm running the triple chain ring only because I have to pedal up to my trails, otherwise I'd be running the single with the bash guard like yours. I highly recomend the DT Swiss quick release as long as you don't mind the handle feeling like cheap plastic.

    @ Xcelrr8

    ...hey, nice build. Few questions for ya:

    1) What's the weight on that bad boy?
    2) How are you liking the Roco on there? And how if you ran the DHX-Air first, how's the comparison between the two? (I'm really thinking about going for the Roco which is why I'm asking.)

    Thanks,

    It weighed about 33lbs when I was running the DHX-air. With the Roco I'm not sure but it should be around 36lbs. The DHX is a hard shock to set up and given the various terrains that I ride on a daily basis it was just too much of a hassle adjusting it. The Roco on the other hand is simpler to adjust and is just plain smoooooooth. I don't get any bob when climbing and it reacts well when I put the hammer down. I would highly recommend the Roco over the DHX if weight is not an issue.
    That's how I roll, Fast and out of control.

    One more question for ya, is that the Roco RC World Cup, or the TST-R? (Should be the 7.88" x 2.25" right?)

    Nice 6.6s! I assume the baby blue is your wife's. It reminds me of 5.5 that was stolen ( to the theft).
    I debated to get either white, baby blue or black but ended up getting a white one.

    Cheers to your bikes!

    Ya the baby blue is my wifes I couldn't afford a paint job is what I tell everyone else . My recent bike was white or I would of went for that for sure the white is beautiful. I was thinking about the british green but with the red hubs and other random colored parts I was worried about the whole christmas tree look.

    Yeah I remember I had the stumpjumper back in 94 with all the rasta parts from a company called Kooka. What ever happened to them? They had the rasta colored cranks and the peace sign canti brake hangers for the cables was pretty pimpin' for back in da day.

    XC? Bike

    Here is my new XC bike.

    Frame: 6.6, Raw finish, Medium
    Shock: ROCO Air TST 200 x 57mm
    Fork: '07 Marz. 66, ETA

    A few things to consider when building this frame:

    1) If you are using a front der. be sure to only use a Shimano low clamp. I tried the SRAM high clamp and SRAM low clamp but there are clearance issues that are unavoidable.

    2) If you plan on using a 66 fork, be sure to use a headset, at least on the bottom, that is external(i.e. FSA Orbit MX...1.5R). I tried using the internal headset for the bottom cup and my uppers on the fork would hit the downtube.

    Performance:

    I just finished building it last night so I really haven't given it a proper workout but from what I have felt in the front yard is that there is no flop with this combination and the shock feels awesome. Not very descriptive but I will follow up at a later date, running short on time.

    That is a beautiful setup you have there. Did you by chance have a scale to weigh her? I haven't been able to get out anywhere to weigh ours yet. I like the way you routed your cables I'm going to have to do that on my next cable change. It seems like I only get a month or 2 tops before I have to change out exposed cable routed bikes.

    Hi @all,
    Nice Rides u all have, specially the ones from Surfinguru and the on from me_versus_u wife. I'm gettin' a 6.6 too (white, evolver, size M), the next Weeks. I've planned to build it up very lightweight, my riding style is not that hard and our local trails don't need any Hardcore bikes.

    Just got some questions about the Steerer Tube. I've read that
    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
    but I've seen some 6.6 with Cane Creek Headsets. What it's all about?

    its about the length of the shell which is driven into the head tube... those cane creek have got - as far as i know - a depth of 20mm, and that is very marginal to the head tube of the 6.6, that is tapered to the inside at some offset. so it eventually could crack it. Correct me if my theory isn't right ;D

    ...i'm riding an Acros AH15R, has a depth of 15mm, fits perfectly,the is slimmer, AL25 works also as far as i know ...but you have to check with your fork, that the installation height is right - both headsets work 1A with marzocchis 66

    cheers

    Here is my 6.6, although I already got rid of the DHX air, and put a DHX coil on instead. For all those out there complaining about the ride of there 6.6, the problem is the air shock, rides like a dream with a coil.

    The guide works great so far no issues except it take a special model Dualrailleur made for the Intense, but that wasn't a problem. the coolest thing is in super rocky section the chain doesn't jump between grears in front anymore.

    The shock performs really great it has a real linier feel and the peddle platform has a wide range, allowing me to climb better, but also us it for when I am doing more aggressive drops.

    I'll be going that route myself in the very near future. I'm looking forward to your impressions. Are you going with a Ti spring, or just factory TST-R?

    Hi from New Zealand

    This is my first post on mtbr.

    Have to say, there are some fantastic looking 6.6s on this thread. My bike is a little utilitarian, but I still think she's pretty!

    I've had my 6.6 for about 16 months now. A long travel trailbike is ideal where I live (Christchurch) with rough and rocky downhill trails... and some technical, rocky climbs too!

    My bike changes a bit depending on where I'm riding it, gets lighter or heavier depending on; tyres, pedals, seat and seatpost, but this is its "normal" setup.

    Frame: Midnight Blue -medium
    *Rider weight: 62 kg - 135lb
    *Rider height: 1.76m - 5' 9"

    *suspension: Fox Vanilla 36
    *brakes: Hope Mini 205/165
    *cranks: Shimano Hone
    *chainguide: Wicked Racin’ Dualrailleur
    *front derailleur/rear d: Shimano XT
    *shifters: Shimano XT
    *pedals: Mallets
    *stem: Thomson X4 70mm
    *handlebar: RaceFace Atlas AM Low Riser
    *seatpost: Thomson Elite layback
    *seat: Specialized Rival
    *headset: FSA Orbit
    *grips: RaceFace ODI
    *tires (front/rear): F- Kenda Nevegal Stick-E 2.5, R – Nevegal DualC 2.35
    *front wheel: Mavic 317 with DT340 Hub
    *rear wheel: Mavic 719 with DMR Revolver Hub
    *weight: 15kg – 33lb

    Roco Air

    How''s everyone finding the Roco works with the 6.6? Much better than the DHX-A?

    Roco coil TST worked so much better for me, over ISX6 air.
    Full filled with 6.6 then migrating to Slope Style for more. "Intense Slope Style Central"
