    Some vids of the Carbine at Downieville and San Luis Obispo



    Downieville
    Downieville Classic Downhill Middle Butcher Intense Carbine - YouTube

    Hazard Trail in San Luis
    Hazard Trail - Montana De Oro - Top Section Intense Carbine - YouTube

    This bike is incredible...ate up the rocky sections at Downieville and feels more stable the faster you go! Sticks to the corners like glue! Even in the sandy stuff at San Luis Obispo, it just bites into the dirt like a pitbull.

    the seat tube is 31.6mm

    I just picked up a Reverb on clearance

    It's unlikely you will need the longer post, unless you are uber tall.

    Hello guys...

    I probably need some opinion help.
    I'm in the market for an AM bike.

    I have 10 years of XC/Trail til 2005 and then stop a while.
    Now in the come back, I understand I will need a new kind of bike.
    I'm inclined for an Intense Carbine with 150/160mm to buil a light but very capable AM.

    Then again my in field friends are making some 3' ~4 ' drops and telling me the bike won't last, it's dificult to Enduro, etc...
    And that I should by a Nomad.

    So.
    The question is: What can a Nomad do or give confidence, that a Carbine won't ?
    Is it geometry, or damn fragile ?
    Other thing: Is this very dificult to maintnance ? Because ther isn't representation of the brand in Portugal...

    Thanks.

    Nomad or Enduro vs. Carbine or Mojo HD ?
    Give me your opinions please, without preconcepts of being Carbine owner probably.
    Cause a bike good in something might be faulty in another...

    I personally ride an HD, but came off a Tracer VP. The difference is where they ride in the travel. My VP rode very low and the HD rides much higher. I rode the Nomad and the Yeti SB66 before my purchase and definitely preferred the HD over those two. I have done 8-10' drops on my HD no problem.

    New pics with a couple of new bits

    Replaced my Lyrik Coil U-Turn with a Fox Talas 36 160mm RC2 Fit and replaced the Raceface Dues cranks with some XTR's. Really loving the Carbine as a replacement to the Tracer :





    Edit: Oh and luckily I had a second set of wheels! Had to swap my King/Flow wheelset with my Hope/819's. Looks like there is still an issue with Fox/King/Hope Floating rotor combo. The rotors hit the fork.

    My Carbine

    It's been a whole week since anyone has posted a Carbine pic. So I figured I would post my two week old baby on here.

    Carbine Photo Album-carbine1.jpg<br><br>Carbine Photo Album-carbine2.jpg

    Just got it build up yesterday as a 1x10. Didn't have a choice, the stock granny from the 970 xtr crankset will NOT clear the bottom bracket without dremling the ring as others have mentioned. 26.2lb on my cheap chinese hanging scale without any real weight weenie parts, transferred almost everything from my blur lt2.

    Initial thoughts: This bike is going to kill me. Speed through corners on the same tires is astonishing, seemingly more than my ability as a rider. With shorter chain stays and lower bb than my blur lt2, I can lean the bike way more, reminds me of my blur classic in that aspect. Rear shock tune is not as progressive as my lt2, but it requires much less sag to get full travel. Don't think I'll really miss the granny except on long fire road climbs.

    Think I need some kind of chain device, even with a bash, unramped ring and shadow plus, I dropped the chain to the inside once. Any recommendations? I had a bb mount mrp 1x which is a no go with the press fit, and I'm not paying $100 for the direct mount version...

    I still wonder if my wife would notice if I swap out some of the parts from her new Carbine.

    Hey all, here's a pic of me and my bud's bikes on a recent ride. Mine is the green one with CCDB air, both running Rockshox Revelation forks, both running 650 ENVE wheels (AM's on the green bike, XC's on the Raw), XX1 on the Raw and XX1/X0 on mine. Weight on the Raw bike is 11.34kg (24.95lb), not sure on my green one but it's sub 12kg.

    Cheers

    24.95lbs??? I'm running X0 2x10 with a Talas, suoerlight wheels, and a very lightweight mix of parts and my Carbine weighs 27.7 lbs. I know the XX1 would save some weight but I'm having trouble seeing it amount to a 3lb. savings? Spec list? I'm curious.

    Looks nice bud!

    Have you tried the DBair in 6" mode? Do you know if it gets full travel in 6" without hitting the shock body?

    Spec list on the Raw bike to get to that weight is FULL XX1, X0 Trails (180/160), ENVE DH Bar @ 760mm, Truvativ T40 75mm stem, Revelation solo air, Reverb 380/125/31.6, ENVE 650 XC's on 240 hubs, Schwalbe Nic 2.2's in the EVO casing set up tubeless. It's legit, don't worry. I couldn't believe it when I saw the weight either! What wheels/tyres are you running on yours? I think you'll find the revelation to be a bit lighter than the Talas.

    Thanks for the compliment! Yes, mine normally runs in 6" mode with the CCDB air and it hasn't hit once. I don't see how there has been any hitting there unless the wrong size shock was installed. The other possibility is that the ones that hit were early incarnations of the frame and later generations were modified to allow the shock to fit. FYI the shock is brilliant, I've ridden the Kashima coat shock in the bike and it's not as good. If you like dials to tweak so you climb better then get the Kashima but if you want better bump compliance and chassis control the CCDB is worth the extra bucks. Cane creek's customer service is awesome too, they are always very quick to accommodate their customers needs.

    That's an impressive total weight! I'm running full XO 2x10 drivetrain. Thomsen stem, Truvativ T40 bars, Formula The One 180/160mm brakes, KS LEV 125mm, WTB Rocket V SLT, TALAS 160 mm. Wheels are the new I9 Torch 24 spoke-1460 grams-pretty damn light, tubeless Hans Dampf 2.35.

    So you saved probably a pound without a dropper post, 1/2 lb. on XX1, lighter brakes and perhaps wheels. Certainly some weight in the tires.

    Interesting to break it down...

    Just got the DB air mounted! I added a picture of the clearance in 6" and full compression. I will have to re-route the shifter cable, but it does not hit! This is a L frame, and I guess that the people who got issues with the shock hitting the frame are riding S or M frames.

    Thanks man!

    Well, I just got the DB Air, and I need to do some tweaking before I can say something useful. The BOS is like a dream compared to what I had earlier, RS Revelation and FOX.

    The problem is the ¤!"&# winter, it's -10c at the moment :/ Need some sun and dusty trails to do a proper test of this combination.

    @ Kamikaze9, sweet bike man! Thanks for the shock pics. I'm looking to get a medium, so still on the fence regarding the shock fit. Now that the carbine comes with the iscg tabs... I don't think I can hold onto my cash much longer

    @Squiby: The CCDB air fits fine in my green medium pictured above, I think the best thing about the updates is the Reverb stealth cable routing personally. ISCG tabs are nice if you don't have a clutch mech though...

    Living in Bend is pretty solid. Maybe you should be here.

    sorry I meant to respond to Kamikaze91 statement about it being too cold to ride. I just didn't see that you were quoting him. Bah. I would like to go to Oregon because I hear it is a great place to ride.

    Front derailleur cable routing: the LBS routed mine over the link on the right side of the frame. I finally realized that the housing was rubbing on the rear tire during compression and the plastic sheathing has worn off after 10 months. Seems that the best way to route it is through the link. I see that this is what the majority of the picture is showing. Any problem in that configuration?

    Double guessing size?! I just got my medium Carbine and love it, but I am starting to wonder of I should have gotten a large? I am 5'11 with a 32" inseam. I typically like a smaller bike and so far have not had an issue on this bike, but I haven't ridden it hard yet either. It currently has a 70mm stem.
