    Intense is a very cool company!!!
    I wanted to share a great customer service experience...

    I purchased a used 2009 Uzzi in early 2010 and rode it hard as I could.
    It's final voyage, before I planned on selling it for a new 951, was a trip to Whistler this fall.
    My brother rode it and I rode the new 951, both of our first trip up there, was the best time ever but...
    ...when I got home I found the rear triangle had cracked in the lower pivot area. :(
    As a second owner, I doubted I deserved any warranty on a three year old frame.
    However, at the suggestion of a friend, I went ahead and called up Intense.

    WOW...I can't express how much better it went than I had imagined.
    Intense told me they would honor the warrantee due to the common hiccup, even for a second owner.
    They were out of replacement rear triangles and I was looking at a six month wait for the new batch...
    ...so they sent me a brand new 2012 Uzzi complete frame for the price of the new shock!!!

    Thanks guys...so far beyond necessary.
    I love supporting companies that stand behind their products more than their lawyers.

    They were great when I had an issue with one of mine back in the day and went way beyond what they needed to. That's why I have my fourth Intense in six years on the way.

    Thanks for sharing a GREAT customer service experience. I also have had them do the same for me a couple of times over the years. This is why I have had 9 different Intense bikes since '98. They have always treated me right.

    More people should post their good experiences here. It's all too easy for people to have something bad happen to their bike and then blame the manufacturer for the problem (when more often than not it's rider error).

    Everyone with an Intense, whatever the model, whatever the year. Look at it. Look and think about the time it took to build. Now go ride it. And realise that all those hours cutting, welding, polishing and spraying were all done so you can keep that smile on your face.

    Well done Intense for breaking out of the mould, for staying out of the mainstream, for keeping riding alive.

    while their turnaround time has been less than stellar for me (i'm a guide in tahoe and it took 1.5 months to get my cracked frame replaced) they do go out of thier way to make you satisfied. If they can up their turnaround time, I will keep recoomending to my clients. Hard to do that though while I rode a nomad waiting for my replacement frame for 1.5 months when they said it would take a week.

    You are a guide and you pay retail? Nobody getting a bro price would be ******y enough to post negative comments. So, uh, which one is it?

    I had problems getting a d-railer hanger a few years back, I emailed Jeff and he sent me three and a sweet Intense T-Shirt! I have not forgotten that.

    In my experience they were a bit slow on getting a new swingarm for my M9; however, they did come through and gave me a great deal because of the wait. I always wanted one back when I was a kid and have owned two of them since being able to. Every so often a thread complaining about negative experiences with them comes across so I am glad to see the threads discussing the positive experiences when they arise.

    Intense is a very cool company!!!
    Just found this thread, as I ironically just found myself in the first half of this scenario. This is just one more positive story I've heard about Intense and their CS. Really adds peace of mind to staying with Intense. Thumbs up!
