Put the Roco on and it's like a brand new bike. It's my full on little "DH" sled now and it can climb!!!

    I'm loving it!

    Here is my new 6.6, powdercoated blue

    Here is mine. Just finished yesterday. Still have a couple small things to finish. I need to cut the steerer down and wrap the chainstay. I will probably add a MRP XCG. Intense makes the most killer bikes in the world!!! Thanks again RIck, you rock.

    Thanks!! I had the color done by a Premium Powdercoat in Longmont, CO. I tell you it was a pain sitting there in front of about 200 colors and picking one out for the frame when you are only seeing a 4x4 square of it. It is called candy blue. It really changes in different lights. I guess the closest I have seen to it is the Subaru STI's in this blue. They also put a clear coat on it. Here are a few more pics of the color.

    Ya, it came raw. I ordered another set of stickers and had my LBS take apart the bearings. I would mess those up I'm sure....I had wanted to have a frame painted in a color that I could pick for awhile. I wanted something out of the norm, but not too wild.

    Do any of you guys get a good amount of flex in the rear of your 6.6? I'm 6ft2in and weigh 220lbs so I know I'm a large dude but I get more flex out of this frame than I get out of my XC race bike. If I grab my seat with one hand and the top of the back tire in the other I can push and pull to see about 1-2 in of side to side flex in the swingarm. Is it just my frame that has this issue? Please let me know. Thanks

    I love it so far, it's very plush and adjustable. Originally, I had a Manitou Evolver ISX-6 which I hated. I then got a Fox TALAS RC rear shock which didn't suit the bike either. I was about to give up on air shocks and get a coil. A friend advised me to get a ROCO air and I'm glad I did. Its super plush and with the TST feature and bottom out chamber you can easily adjust the shock for any trail or type of riding. It matches the Magura Wotan perfectly.

    OMG dude, you are walking into a minefield. I'm with you. IMO, it's not just your frame, it is an inherent problem. I'm 5'6", 135lbs, and although it's the funnest bike i've ever ridden, it is also the flexiest. The fanboys will deny it up and down, but a lot of people say the same, and everyone i've ever personally met who has ridden one has noticed it. Might be best to take this conversation to another thread; you don't have to search far in this forum to find a lot of opinions on this.

    Why aren't more people running seat droppers?

    I've have had my speedball R for over a year now and its the best thing i've done to my 6.6. Get low for cornering and downhill, sit high for climbing.

    I use the DT 10mm rear axle to get more stiffness and i think i dont feel much flex (i, about 205lbs )

    Do you ride a (DHX) Air? I think get more problems with your air shock ...last week i changed on a roco wc coil and its feel like a new bike
    Before i wasntr able to find a good setup for my DHX air...i trierd lots of setups, the shock got a tuning by Motopitkan without success

    THBiker, you seem to be from Austria? Where did you get your Roco WC from (in that length!)? Must be a 2007 model ...

    Hey Bill a great review and a real beauty of a bike! Works Red is definetly hot. I'm really considering a large 6.6 for myself, the 'works' colours are very impressive. Cheers.

    I also switched from DHX Air to RocoWC ...works perfect - of course a DB will do the job even better

    @AmnesiaX: are you sure that you want to give your bike a hit as big as it needs a 888? ...i'm for myself really not sure if - in this case - it deserves such a treatment

    ccdb

    Will6.6 the photo album threads probably not the best place to ask this question for best response.

    I am running a 6.6 with ccdb and love it, the shock makes the bike so much better. It takes a while to set it up right but once you have it fine tuned its just awsome. Worth the mony imo.

    cheers

Is there some kinda bias control in the splitter, or is this just being run 50/50?

    New question here. Huh

    Is it a joke? It must've passed under the Radar for most of us, good eye for catching it! I've never heard or seen anything like that before, kinda strange when you think about it and maybe dangerous too. During my rides I like to do a lot of nose wheelies and manuels so that set up is out of the question for me.

    Usually that kind of setup is for handicapped riders.

    No good so long 6.6...

    News from Interbike... 6.6 will not be returning in 2009. With the addition of the new Tracer VP and the new UZZI, there's no room for the 6.6.

    Intense 6.6 With DHX 5

    Thought I would stick up a pic of the SixpointSix. The bike weighs in at 32lbs and has proved pretty awesome both going up as well as the downs. Just ordered a new Tracer, so it will be interesting to see how they compare!

    Here are some of the specs.

    Intense 6.6 Medium In Mat Black
    Fox 36 Talas RC2 Forks
    Fox DHX 5 With Ti Spring
    I-9 Enduro Wheel Set
    Canecreek Head Set
    Avid Juicy 9 Brakes With 203mm And 185mm Hope Floating Rotors
    SRAM X-9 Shifters And Mechs
    Atomlab Trail King Pedals
    Easton Carbon Bars And Seat Post
    XT Crank Set With Dual Ring Setup
    Continental Vert Tyres

    I had to do this once for a guy that chainsawed off 2 fingers off his left hand. We ran a thumby as well as a pod shifter on the RH side so he could ride again.

    Question for the 6.6 crowd: with head tube at 1.5, I am planning to use the Fox 36 Talus RC2 fork, which is available with a 1 1/8th steer tube. I really like the Cane Creek 110 headset, which only works with 1 1/18. What are thoughts on using a reducer so I can make this combo work?

    Before I used a reducer, I'd rather use a headset made for a 1.125" steerer and a 1.5" headtube like a Cane Creek Double Xc or a Double Xc Flush.

    Why don't you just buy the 1.5" talas?

    My just arrived 6.6 frameset

    Here is my just arrived 2008 6.6. I am taking out the Evolver air shock in favor of a DHX 5.0 coil. Does anyone know what size shock this is or should be? I cannot find it on it anywhere and that will be useful in selling this shock and buying my new one. Thanks

    Lightweight version

    Thought I'd mess around and try to create a light, yet very capable version of the 6.6...

    Here's what I came up with. Sits at 27.7 lbs w/out pedals, 28.65 with heavy 'ol flats. Rode it today and it felt like a new bike, especially liked the foward motion that the I9's create.
    Have avid juicys/danger boy levers, and CCDB with ti spring for bigger hit days.

    Here's the build:

    2008 6.6 Works Blue - Med
    *suspension: 2009 Fox 36 Float R / Rear Fox RP23 "Pushed"
    *brakes: 2008 Avid Ultimates 185 f/160r
    *cranks: 2008 XTR 175mm
    *front derailleur/rear d: XTR, SRAM X0
    *shifters: SRAM X0 - Grip Shift
    *pedals: Kona
    *stem: Thomson 110, 5 degree
    *handlebar: Monkeylite Carbon
    *seatpost: KNC Ti
    *saddle: Selle Italia Flight gel flow
    *headset: Cane Creek xc double flush
    *grips: ODI rouge
    *tires (front/rear): Front and back S-works Eskar 2.30
    *front wheel: I9 Enduro, 20 mm TA
    *rear wheel: I9 Enduro, 10mm TA
    *weight: 28.65 lbs

    It's a used frame, but I bet the top tube was polished with a steel wool after a scratch. I used this same trick on my 5.5. Look's exactly as you describe: shiny raw.

    Building my 08 6.6 and have a shock question. I am going to use a Fox DHX 5.0 coil, what is the correct size for this frame? I think it is 7.875 x 2.25 but am not 100% sure. Thanks

    intense spider 2

    Watch for the intense spider 2 which may be made available in March 2009. It's a trail bike as opposed to spider which is xc.

    I'm sorry I can not help you in French. Did you click on the link and look at the photos? The 6.6 has been discontinued. The new Uzzi VP will be adjustable between 7" and 7.5" travel. If you want a lighter bike you could look at the Tracer VP which is 5.5" or 6".

    Is your Tracer works finish? Stripping this thing was a major pain!

    Thanks, I'm trying to get it finished up this week. Still need my X.O der back from Tyler at TwentySix though!

    wow look at the RAW family!!!! THATS the way to go

    ...nice customisations out here!

    ...speaking of which: I'm upgrading my 6.6 to a '09 Talas 1.5 Steerer, and i'm curious if i can use a FSA Orbit Xtreme Pro 1.5 Headset on the 6.6 Frame? ...cuz i dunno the insertion depth and i heard that people were cracking the headtube in some cases the headset was too long inside the tube? (had an Acros AH15R until now, but this has a insertion depth of only 15mm)
    Any concerns about the FSA?

    cheerio!
