    Bolt torque and greasing question

    Hello all,
    I have recently purchased a used tracer 29 frame. It's a bit of a gamble as i have never ridden a 29er! Anyway, I don't have any information regarding bolt torque settings so if anyone can help it would be appreciated.
    Also, is there a procedure for greasing the bearings or is it just a case of pumping it in. Don't know if the idea is to 'flush' old grease out by loosening the outer bearing caps.
    Thanks in advance.

    MattZo, did you get the torques? If not, PM me and I'll send you the Intense "all bikes" manual that doesn't seem to be online anymore.

    Oh, and as for the grease: Don't loosen anything, just pump grease into the zerk fittings until you see fresh grease oozing out at the links. At least that's what I've learned as of late - I need to start doing that on mine, as I've just installed new bearings since the old ones were shot.
