    Here is my c29, crappy garage foto but it's hard to stop riding this thing out on the trail. I'll get some pictures on the trail tomorrow.

    This is literally the best bike that I have EVER owned, and i've pretty much had them all. I'm not sure what Bike mag and their "bible" test were smoking but this thing is a beast...as great as it is, it's even better with the CCDB CS on it. Highly recommend. Sam is also very responsive and easy to deal with. proud to own an INTENSE.

    Carbine 29 Review

    I agree. It's pretty rad. I love it with the 140 fork as it made the bike a bit more "flow trail" friendly but yet it still rips downhill. Set a bunch of my fastest downhill runs on it on the 2nd ride. Everything I was hoping for in a trail/all mountain bike.

    I've been riding mine for about a month and have had a few dropped chains. I'm running an XT 24/38 chainset and a clutch mech. Is there a dual guide that fits the frame? It looks like the lower pivots are going to be in the way.

    Otherwise it's awesome. Out riding with a friend who's been a bit faster than me on a downhill track and he crashed in front of me. He said he was pushing too hard because I was keeping up with him.

    MTB Pilot, thanks for the comparison with the 429. What I would like to know is, are you a lot faster all around with the429 or has the c29 been competing pretty closely? Thanks

    Mine started only after riding in a bit of rain. Then spraying the bike off. I pulled the bottom bracket and 're greased, also I pulled the rear hub apart abd 're greased. Nothing changed. I'm pretty sure it's in the linkage.

    I'm not experiencing the poping noise on this frame, although my Spider Comp frame did make the noise that you guys are describing. It was coming from the upper pivot on the upper swing link, I found that pulling it apart and greasing it would cure the problem for several rides.

    I've cured the creaking on my Carbine using this method... as well check the dropouts and re-grease the hardware... one other common cause is chainring bolts.

    I'll check that top pivot. Hopefully that helps. Thanks for the responses.

    I had the cassette/ xd driver interface creak on my x01 build. Taking it apart and lubing it helped. I just got some new wheels so I'm waiting to see if this xd driver/ cassette interface creaks.

    Captain Cobb you are a bike whisperer. That worked perfectly, I just pulled the bolt out of that top pivot put some grease on it and I was silent once again. Thank you

    Just finish build my C29 few weeks ago, what a fantastic bike.

    However I got a question about the rear shock travel, which hole should I use to get the 140mm setup ? upper one or lower one ?

    Upper hole, also be aware that you need to reset shock air pressure and sag for each hole.

    Sorry for my tardiness, but been on the road WAY TOO MUCH and way too little riding.

    Overall, I don't have enough time on the carbine for really say, but I feel so far pretty close. I believe with today's bikes being so efficient, that it really comes down to my fitness. I've been up and down since Feb. due to work and sickness. Both bikes are incredibly efficient. Over all flat and groomed trails, not a lot of that here in AZ, they are pretty close giving an edge to 429. Climbing long miles the 429 has a bit of an edge, but when it comes to the roughest terrain and descending the Carbine has the edge. This bike descends as well as my Session 88 that I had for a few years.

    Granted these bikes are set up quite differently, but they weigh about the same. 429 is 2x10 with 100mm in rear and 130mm in front, and the Carbine is 1x11 with 150mm in front.

    One of these days I'll be able to answer your question more thoroughly.
