    This bike was under wraps for a while here in Socal. Got a chance to pedal it and it is awesome.

    If the guy who posted it is correct, its a improved carbon version of the Tracer 29 5.0 to 5.5 travel and shorter CS maybe 2 lbs lighter?

    Would be nice to know the wheelbase also, these long travel 29rs get long

    Carbine 29-20130712_131808_zps4b2ca9af.jpg

    Wow, I just put in an order with my LBS today to build up a Tallboy LT built up just like this...good thing they sell Intense as well, can't wait to find out more. REALLY hoping it comes longer than the 24.5" of the existing Carbines.

    I know it is at least 150 and might be 160. It has a 160 Pike on the front.

    We were told it is a 5.0-5.5 adjustable rear with slacker HT and shorter chainstays than the T29.

    The 150-160mm travel seems like wishful thinking... at least with VPP and short chainstays. Let's hope I'm wrong.

    I think it could be done with 17.5 inch CS, that's short enough for me.

    I assume Intense was going for the shortest chainstays they could manage with the Spider Comp. Hard to imagine adding 1+" of travel and keeping that.

    5.5inches is 140mm, so not unreasonable to go with a 150-160mm fork.

    Yeah, I will be surprised if they get shorter than 17.5 in order to still accommodate larger volume tires.

    The spider comp does have great tire clearance.

    140mm would do. We'll know for sure soon I hope.

    Its official. Numbers are on pinkbike:

    140mm of rear wheel travel
    160mm of travel up front
    67 degree head tube angle
    51mm 29-specific fork offset
    17.75" chainstay

    Like a DH bike with a wheelbase that long. I can see why they opted to ride Mammoth with it, with Upper Shock Treatment being one of the trails tackled.

    So is this Carbine just like my 27.5 only with a fork and 29er drop outs?

    less travel, longer chainstays but otherwise just like it I'm kinda disappointed that they didn't go big to compete head to head with the Specialized Enduro 29.
