    Is the triangle physically different, or just paint?

    Hey guys, hang tight on this one for a bit as we're working on confirming if we will be able to offer this upgrade.

    The pics of the 2015 Carbine 29 and T275 Carbon rear triangle/drop outs look different. The Carbine 29 looks eerily similar to the Spider 29c with the 2 small bolts on the dropout.

    If you look at the tech exploded view on Intense's website however you don't see the two small bolts and it is the same as the T275.

    So which is it? Just like the T275 carbon or Spider 29c?

    I really wish they would do the same integrated dropouts on the Spider 29C since the Carbine 29 is really more bike than I need.

    Example below, both 2015 paint scheme yet with 2 different drop out designs.

    I guess the main question is for the folks at Intense is:

    Is this the dropout on the 2015 Carbine 29 and will it be available on the Spider 29C?

    It seems Intense will have to order some extra rear frames from their asian shops to replace the cracking and failing 2014 parts.
    Outsorcing production is not easy....

    i wish the "pivot" connecting the swingarm would be integrated too....

    i am waiting of an answer from Intense in case of my getting loose glued in Pivot on my Spider Comp rear triangle...
    Looks like they really have to order extra rear ends...

    Any chance of something similar for Carbine 275 that would also fit the SL (same colour) 😋
