    Intense Cycles Factory Forum

    I thought this would be a cool way to give some insight into the daily happenings here at the Intense factory. I'll be posting random photos from the shop as often as possible. Feel free to add requests, and let me know if there's anything you'd like to see more of! Let's keep the comments positive please! Here are a few to start-

    I'm a Tig welder at Boeing, I also do the Heat Treat. Is it possible to see the Heat Treat set-up, I believe it's like the set-up here, a "drop-bottom"? I wish I could go in there and weld my own frame. I love to see pics of the shop.

    Can we see some of the Asian composite side of things? Are they painted in Asia or US&A?

    Also some of the design process, r&d, prototype bikes etc

    Sam, I noticed that the Uzzi frame that Kenney was finishing up has a Crane Creek DB air shock. Does intense recommend the standard air canister or the XV canister?

    We recommend standard can for the Uzzi, but based on personal preference on how you'd like the bike to ride you can play around with the XV can as well as volume adjust spacers.
