    Intense Carbine 275 Geometry question

    Looking at maybe purchasing one of these frames. I see the frame can be setup to either 5.5" or 6" travel.

    With the shock set to 5.5" travel does this change the geometry at all? Does it lower the bottom bracket? or does the geometry remain the same.

    Adjusting the travel is independent of the geometry of the bike. The bike does ride quite a bit different in each setting though, and you'll have to adjust shock pressure to compensate for the changes in leverage when changing the travel.

    Which position is the longer travel option for the rear shock, the top mount hole or bottom?

    What happens to the leverage when setting to 5.5"
