    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.

    3M tape

    3M also make the same stuff in sheets that you can custom cut. i found some at a window tinting store. great stuff. and comes off with very little effort.

    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
