    Carbine 29 Review

    We've been getting some awesome reviews for this bike since its release:

    Intense Carbine 29: Could this be the ultimate trail/race weapon? | Enduro Mountainbike Magazine

    Anyone that has one want to comment on their experience so far?

    Let me know if anyone has any questions about this beast!

    Thanks for the review. Been looking at one of these for a future 29er.

    The frame needs to be offered in the traditional "Intense Red".

    MBUK just gave it a glowing review, 4.5* out of 5. Evolutionary rather than revolutionary......

    I personally think the colour scheme is horrible, enough to stop me buying it.

    Honesty is appreciated. Another more 'neutral' color scheme is due for this frame...

    Nice write up on the Carbine 29. As much as I love my Tracer 2 27.5 conversion, lately I've been coveting the Carbine 27.5 and this review makes me think I should also demo the 29er before making any decisions. I wouldn't mind other color options too. Not because I think the paint's ugly, far from it. Just reminds me too much of the Specialized Stumpy 29er at first glance.

    Carbon/White - like the SL Carbon/Red pattern

    The new Carbon/Yellow 275 looks mega btw

    Will 2015 275s be lengthened in the top tube with internal cabling?

    I test rode one yesterday in the Surrey hills in good old blighty, I dont think i've smiled so much on a bike in ages.
    So much confidence on the downs and climbed pretty well too. (was using 160mm pikes for the first time too)
    Now to sell one of the children to justify the mammoth cost it is to buy one over here.

    I really love mine. It's by far the best bike I've ever owned with my two previous bikes being a Sumpjumper fsr and an Enduro Evo expert. I have the X01 build and have really liked it so far, simple and efficient. I was really surprised at how much this bike smoothed rough technical sections but this is my first 29er. I've cleaned sections of rough trail I've always had to dab on.
    I have to say that I've very happy with my purchase and look forward to having this bike for quite a while.
    Oh and I LOVE the color and paint scheme. I honestly I was only interested in the performance of the bike and still would have bought it if it had been pink with polka dots. The fact that it performs so well and imho looks *****in is icing on the cake.

    For what's its worth, I thought the orange looked pretty bad in pics, but when I saw it in person I actually think it looks really good.

    The color scheme is cool. But, Intense offing such a great bike and not having an "Intense Red" version would be like Zepplin releasing an epic tune without Jimmy on guitar.

    Thanks! CC's website says 7.87x3.5 when you put the Carbine 29 in their "shock fit finder." I thought they were a little off; Don't even think they make that size.

    Mine also showed up at my LBS as I had it shipped there while I'm out of town. Mine is a warranty replacement for a carbine, since they didn't have any large frames to replace with. I had recently moved to 29", so I inquired about the 29 model and they said no problem. I was thinking about selling the carbine 275 replacement since I had all the parts, but now thinking of building the 29 to ride as I want to try some "enduro" races this year. I loved the Carbine, especially as a 275, but was moving on to less suspension 29ers. I'm really torn about the bike with the most recent Bike Magazine "Bike Bible" test. I really like that they say you can crush tech climbs and gnarly descents, but the wheelbase making it less nimble and hard to manual is disappointing. This is only the second review I've seen, first was a dude in UK that LOVED it, and there is not much more to go off of. Thinking of building, trying it, and selling frame and fork if I don't love it, but finding a Pike 160mm, 51mm offset on the aftermarket is proving to be almost impossible so far. Can find 150 with 51mm or 160 w/o 51mm, but both of those take away from how the bike was designed. I dunno... Won't be able to build it for another month or so anyway.

    On a more positive note, Sam and Chad at Intense have been absolutely wonderful and very accommodating! Best customer service I've ever had for a warranty issue!

    Any relevant opinions on a fork? Would less suspension or less offset be more desirable...or less desirable?

    I have about 100 mi now on my Carbine 29 and its unbelievably dialed climbing and descending. I definitely don't think the chainstays are any too long. Intense nailed it!

    I couldn't agree with you more about my dealings with Sam and Chad. They have been very timely and professional to deal with. I also have the same delima with finding a fork for the Carbine29. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    HEY Sam,

    What's your opinion on this? Is it more important to have 160mm or 51mm off set for this bike. From the response I've gotten from sellers and distributors, is that a Pike 160 with 51mm offset is not available on aftermarket. 160 with standard offset or 150 with 51mm offset are the choices.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks! That's what my initial gut feeling was, but then wondering if the 51mm would make it push through up hill switch backs. I don't really need 160mm anyway, especially with 29. What do you think HA will be with 150; 67.5?

    Looking forward to building and ripping with it!

    Not exactly sure on HA. Probably still somewhere between 67-67.5

    it's entirely possible I don't know what I'm talking about, but... it looks to me like the offset is in the lowers, and the travel is controlled by the spring shaft. So if you started with the 150/51 version and replaced the spring shaft with.. it looks like rockshox p/n 11.4018.026.002 RockShox Pike Air Shaft Solo Air 160mm Travel 29 A1 - AEBike.com
    you could make it 160/51.

    sure, it's crap that you'd have to replace parts on a brand new fork, but maybe that's what you have to do to get the OEM-only combination of options. I wouldn't guess replacing a spring shaft would be that difficult, assuming that's all you have to do.

    There is good info on this page about increasing travel from 150mm to 160mm. I'm going to do it as soon as the parts come in stock. Pike 2014

    While twiddling my thumbs waiting for my new RS Pike to arrive I decided to do a little more research about converting the 29x150mm Pike up to 160mm. Some of you have probably been frustrated that you can't purchase the 160mm travel 51mm offset version over the counter, there are only a couple of company's that SRAM has been allowing to use these on with their spec models. Intense and the Carbine29 is one.
    Anyway, I called SRAM today and picked the brain of one of their techs. Turns out all I need is a 160mm air shaft and some lubricating oil for the lower end. Here's the link, also another helpful link about reducing travel on the pike, same steps apply for increasing the travel.

    Thanks for posting that, I have a 160mm air shaft on the way.

    Any ideas on what RockShox 0w-30 suspension oil actually is- can I source something similar at my local moto shop?

    I read something in the suspension forum about using Maxxima 0w-30 motor oil. That's my best guess. My Pike just showed up today, 160mm air shaft is also on the way.

    Carbine 29 Review

    Finnished! Bike looks beautiful! Rides like the Spider Comp with more travel, "and I love how the Spider Comp rides".. Very impressed with the new RS Pike! Excellent attention to details on both the Carbine and the Pike. I'll post a ride report in a week or so, give me time to work out any kinks.

    If only they made an XL frame with at least a 25.5 top tube. Don't they know us tall 6'4"+ guys love long travel 29ers with short stems and wide bars?!

    I have the longer air shaft sitting on the bench in the garage, I just haven't gotten to it yet. The bike feels amazing even at 150mm up front.
    I've read the SRAM breakdown a couple times, looks pretty strait forward http://cdn.sram.com/cdn/farfuture/si...e_manual_0.pdf

    Alright, finally got around to doing the 150mm to 160mm conversion on my Pike, I just followed these instructions http://cdn.sram.com/cdn/farfuture/si...e_manual_0.pdf
    It was a piece of cake! One beer job. Ride report will have to wait until the rain stops.

    Hi guys,

    I had placed the order for a Carbine 29 frame (S) and is about to embark on the newbuild process. The greatest challenge is the front fork. As mentioned by the bros in this forum, the LBS do not stock the Rockshox Pike with 160mm travel with offset of 51 degrees. I have to settle with the 150mm with offset instead. I will probably modify it to 160mm travel after the warranty expires. I hope Intense can work with SRAM with regards to giving Carbine 29 owners a special deal so that non OEM builders can purchase the 160mm fork with offset without much of a hassle.I personally don't mind paying abit more for this in order to unlock the full potential of the bike.

    Sam, please bring this up to your management!

    Regards
    Kongg

    Kongg, buy the 160mm air shaft and modify it yourself. It's a $38 part and only took about 20 minutes to change out. Keep your 150mm air shaft to swap back if you ever have any problems. Super easy! Here's a link to the part. RockShox Pike Air Shaft Solo Air 160mm Travel 29 A1 - AEBike.com

    Just like this Regularbob's bike blog: Reducing the Rockshox Pike RCT3 Solo Air travel. Only increasing travel instead of reducing it obviously.

    I'm sure the rain has stopped by now... Come on man, what's your take? So little on this bike out there; Very curious to hear anyones take. I'm about to get home in a few days and going to start building the frame that I got as a warranty for my Carbine. I loved the Carbine, but have moved on to 29ers and am looking forward to seeing how this compares to the Carbine 275 and my current FS 29er.

    I'm going to run the 150 Pike I bought for a while to make sure I like the frame enough to keep it. If I keep it, I'm planning on doing the CCDB or Monarch Plus rear upgrade.

    MORE REVIEW AND Carbine 29 PORN PLEASE!

    Carbine 29 Review

I loved the Carbine, but have moved on to 29ers and am looking forward to seeing how this compares to the Carbine 275 and my current FS 29er.

    I'm going to run the 150 Pike I bought for a while to make sure I like the frame enough to keep it. If I keep it, I'm planning on doing the CCDB or Monarch Plus rear upgrade.

    MORE REVIEW AND Carbine 29 PORN PLEASE!
    Yeah the rain has stopped, I still have only a handful of rides on the C29 and I am still fiddling with air pressures and dampening. That being said, I'm really happy with the bike so far. I'm still on the fence about bumping the fork up to 160mm, I do like the bottomless feel but the steering is a little slower than it was in the 150mm position, I kept the 150mm air shaft just in case I want to go back, kinda doubt it though. The rear suspension is amazing as expected, very active, bottomless feel, a little more mid stroke support than my old Spider Comp or Tracer29. Rear end stiffness is good, the bike has slightly longer chainstays than the Spider comp, its not really noticeable though. All around, I'm stoked with this bike! I just need a little more time in the saddle. Crappy picture but it's what I have on hand.

    So I finally got back from work in Japan and built my Carbine 29. The first thing I have to say is that pictures online DO NOT do this frame justice. There are really nice and obvious improvements from my original Carbine frame from 2012. The orange is stunning! The cable routing is 100% better, though I wish they would have continued the internal routing through chain stay for brake as they did with shifter cable. My large frame with headset, BB, seat post collar and rear axle weighed in at 6lb 11oz and complete build is 28lb 2oz. I only got about six miles in yesterday due to contaminated brake pads making my ride a bit scary after they heated up and still a bit of jet lag. My initial impression was "wow this thing is big and I feel really high and on top of the bike." Once I started riding it felt much mor comfortable and similar to my Carbine setup as 26" and 27.5". I am surprised at how agile the bike feels after reading the "Bike Magazine" review. It's a fast racing feel and I had no problem with manualing, wheelies and small jumps and hops. I haven't done any high speed tight weavey trails yet, but don't think it will be a bad performer. I will get more miles on my 3 weeks off and post a proper review later. As for now I will just post lots of bike porn; Intense, you guys need to put better pics on your website, cause the ones you have now don't sell this bike, IMHO. Also, I bought "Rockguardz" carbon VVP linkage guard that is designed for Santa Cruz tall boy, but with a little dremel action it fits pretty well. My first Carbine's linkage got pretty beat up from the rocks here in Arizona. ENJOY!

    MTB Pilot,

    I see you have a Mach 429 in the background, what do you think of the M429. I know the Carbine will be a lot plusher and the 429 much more efficient. But curious on your take on those great bikes.

    It appears that the article mentioned by Thelma appeared in the December 2013 issue of Mountain Biking UK. The review is found on page 104. The Carbine 29 was rated 4 1/2 over 5, it scored better over others like the GT Sensor Pro Alloy, Devinci Troy Carbon SL, Lapierre Spicy 527 EI, Santa Cruz Bronson C and Marin Attack Trail Quad Carbon XT Pro.

    Well, the 429c is my favorite bike of all time, since I started riding mt. bikes in '94. I never liked 29ers in their early inception; I felt way up high and clumsy. The latest generation and improvements I'm down with. The 29" wheel is a no-brainer here in AZ rock and chunk. That being said, I really like the feel of the 429, as I feel like I'm in the bike and not way upon top; At 6' I ride a medium frame. I have a Fox 34 140, shimmed down to 130 and sagged to use only 125mm. The 32 was just too weak for my 205# geared up azz and the AZ terrain. It's really fast and agile, and with only 100mm in the back, handles AZ chunk really well; I kind of glide over everything with speed. The bikes geo and handling just feels really dialed and I can't complain about it at all. It's a bike I can ride all day and most all conditions.

    I put my Derby Wide rimmed wheels on the Carbine and am running carbon Havens on the 429c; About a 320g diff. The 429 has XTR 2x10 and Carbine has X01 with old X0 crank and Wolftooth direct mount ring. Both have 150mm KS LEV posts, descent to large sized tires, XTR/XT trail pedals and brakes, and both weigh in at 28lbs 6oz exactly. If I eventually go with the XTR 1x11 that is coming on the 429, it will lose a few ounces.

    So far, 25 miles of chunky, technical terrain, the Carbine is a real performer. I rode my original carbine as a 26 and 27.5, and love the bike!! I do feel a little on-top of the 29, but I got used to it and feels like the Carbine 275, but with wagon wheels. It is a monster truck, as has been described before in other reviews, and just crushes and rolls over anything in front of it. The rear triangle feels stiffer on the 29 version compared to my original Carbine frame. It's very fast and responsive, and I'm not having any problems maneuvering it in any tight situations or switchbacks. Climbing is very efficient with no feed back in the pedals and the rear end stays stuck to the ground. I may have detected a little wandering in slow chunky climbs, but that also could have been from my "not in riding shape," tired azz. The RS Pike is an incredible fork!! I really like the Fox 34 on the 429, but if you want 34-35mm stanchions at 140mm plus, the RS Pike edges out Fox as an all around better performer. The one thing I have noticed though, and I think it is designed into the fork, is the lowers on the Pike seem to flex back and forth, longitudinally, at high speed on rough, small bump trails. It's not "noodley" like a Fox 32 120+mm fork that feels like its going to snap in half, but just this little flex at the bottom of the lowers; May be all my imagination The thing that has surprised me the most, next to the rear triangle stiffness, is how plush the Fox float CTD is and how well it handles slamming into the chunk at speed. The float on my '12 Carbine frame was nowhere near as plush and felt like the rear end would get a little hung up in the chunk, even with 650b wheels; Not the Carbine 29. Thought if I decided to keep the bike to ride in some Enduro, Super-D races, that I would want the plushness of the CCDB, Monarch Plus, or Float X. As of now with the little time I have on it, I won't replace the Float unless it fails. The bike is long, kind of feels like the XL Session 88 I had, but still very maneuverable and much more nimble than a DH bike. I'm not sure what those guys were talking about in Bike Mag's "bike bible" review with respect to manuals and getting it airborne!?!? I don't think it's hard with this bike at all, in fact, with the longer stays, it's quite easy to balance with the front off the ground. Wheelies are really easy, I have no problem manually over chunk at high and low speed and feels balanced in the little 2 feet of air I flew it in a couple of times.

    That's all I know so far, but report back over the next few months as I get more time on the bike.

    In the mean time, some more BP:

    Hey Sam,

    Saw the video of you in Facebook ripping the trails and having great air time near the end of it. All these before hitting the office?!? You have a dream job and you ride well.

    MTB Pilot, how do you like your Derby wide wheels? I'm looking at those for my C29 also.

    Sam, have you guys rode the 29 with 140mm travel front? I'm guessing numbers would make HA and SA about a degree steeper and BB height 13.4". I'm liking the idea of a 140mm front most of the time and changing it to 150 for certain races.

    You're basically at Spider 29 Comp geo with that fork setup. Im sure it would still ride fine, but we only run our Carbine 29's with 150-160mm forks

    Hi Guys, just wondering whether anyone has tried a coil shock on the 29? Dirt Mag seem to think it would work well. Any views / experiences?

    Does anyone know where I could get a custom Carbine 29 build done? Most places are offering either the X0 build kit, or frame only - but ideally I'd like to get a 160mm Pike (only available with the build kit AFAIK) plus a CCDBA, XX1 and Shimano brakes. Any bikes shops able to put that together?

    If you can change the oil in your car, you can build a bike. Do it yourself. No better way to get to know your own machine.

    Ah - should have been clearer! I'm perfectly happy to build my own bike (put my new M9 together last night ), but buying everything together almost always works out cheaper than buying parts separately.

    In particular, the combination of OEM-only fork and CCDBA - if I can only get the fork in a build kit, then I'll need to swap out a whole load of parts to get the build I'm after. If the build kit only comes with a Fox, not the CCDBA, then I'm going to lose money trying to sell the Fox shock on...

    Edit: Thanks Sam - I'll see if I can get Wrench Science or Fanatik to swap out some bits and get my ideal build together.

    SamB,

    You can get the 160mm air shaft from AEbikes (as recommended by CaptCobb in this forum) to convert the off the shelf 150mm travel RS pike to the 160mm travel RS pike.

    Is there anywhere in the southeast that I could demo the Carbine 29? I'm in the market for a new bike and really want to test it out.

    Also at 5'8" what size should I ride? It seems from reviews that Intense runs larger then other medium size bikes.

    But I like my <i>pedally</i> bikes long so I think the small might be the better fit for you. Also these bikes have a long wheelbase, I imagine the small would handle better.

    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

    Anyone else getting a popping or creaking coming from the rear on hard peddling?

    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.
