    Carbine 275 torque specs linkage points?

    Within 3 rides my upper pivot points have come loose and the lowers were not really snug either.
    Does anyone have the correct torque specs? Wanted to tighten them with right torque and some thread lock.

    So uppers 20 Nm for the rear rocker, but what about the two upper bolts that attach to the shock mount bracket? Are they 20 Nm as well? (so both marked in red at 20 Nm?)

    And of course what about the lowers? Is there a manual with all the torque specs somewhere? Didn't get it with the fram. The upper ones that mount to the shock bracket are only tightened to around 8-10 Nm which seems very low?

    I found the exploded view sheet on the website. Godd stuff! Allthough one thing which doesn't make sense in my head is the upper axle pivot (9) which should be tightened to 14 Nm whereas number (7) bolt which goes into the other side should be tightened to 20 Nm? If I tighten bolt (9) it spins unless I hold against bolt (7) on the other side. So if (7) that goes into (9) is tightened to 20 Nm how can (9) then be 14 Nm?

    Just go to the website, then select product--> Carbine.
    Then the first couple of buttons are about the builds, then next to last one says "Tech Info"
    Click it and it opens an exploded view picture which scales according to your screen so right click and download picture to view and zoom .etc.

    Thank you a lot tr1cky_k1d. by the request made on this forum a lot of user are looking for thoses specs. Since a lot of intense seems to have missbuilding cause by bad use of locktite (so they say).
    Hum.. the only thing i cant see but i am not sure. It's that it says carbon on line 9 and the tracer is aloy built, so maybe it's a torque spec for carbon frame...???? but line 7 state the carbine with 175 lbs. Someone else maybe.

    Maybe you should ask Intense directly. They can be reached via phone or email.

    The question was sent to Intense, but no answer.

    Nevertheless I torqued the upper and lower bolts to spec. It held up during a 3 hr ride yesterday, but now the linkage is creaking when standing up and hammering the pedals. While seated there is no noise but when standing up and pushing hard it creaks awfully

    I asked Sam (Intense customer service) to try and reply here as well so that everyone can benefit from the information. If I hear anything else I will post here as well.

    cadoretteboat: No worries, I think we all want the same info
