    Thanks for the info!

    Thanks!

    if the bolt loose it self you need to remove the kone "hope it does" and than tighten the bolt and reinstall. the konus...
    that "kone" prevents the pivot axle from backing itself out since it helps flair out the pivot axle on the non-drive side.
    its what SC and Intense has been using for years on their other bikes. and if it actually does hold the pivot axle in place, i dont see how thats anymore work since you dont have to check your pivot after every ride

    You found the rear end flexy?! This and the Tracer 2 are the stiffest Intense bikes I have ridden - very impressed!! I'm not sure I would want it any stiffer when running prebuilt wheels such as Deemax Ultimates (DH) or Easton Havens (xc).

    ive found the complete opposite of this bike. its the flexiest rear end ive ever had on a bike. hopefully the new setup will work better

    Deadatbirth: I am sure Jeff has plenty of time to provide you with a list of parts. He's only trying to run a business...

    He seemed to care enough that the person above was missing parts, I'd figure he'd want to make sure no one else has issues

    Thanks. I wasn't sure if I'd like it all blacked out so I just did one side and then decided I liked it with and with out graphics so I've just left it that way.

    not near my bike at the moment but does anyone know if the two grease ports are threaded or pressed in? when i replace my link setup i want to remove all the grease and then squeeze new lube into the cavity if those zirk fittings are removable. i have a grease gun but it takes forever to fill that whole cavity up.

    Does anyone know the actual torque specs from Intense on the new lower pivots?

    I just threw the new link on my old SS1. Betterer system IMO. Used the Santa Cruz torque specs but I don't want to assume they are correct before I take it out for a little abuse.

    Edit: (to keep it on topic) I have another new link to throw on my M9 next.
