    No reason why not to go medium, my M6 fits like a glove and the M9 may fit even better

    Thank you! I actually just made a thread with some other questions before I saw your post.

    No worries. My seat is pushed back on the rails a little but I like the feel of the bike "under" me when I'm riding rougher sections of trail. Never have a problem getting forward and low when needed and I never bang my knees on the bars even wearing kneepads.

    Nobody that I know who is 6'0" rides a large anything.

    I know, but having ridden Intense for the past 10 years, I decided to stick with what I know, and works for me.

    and i am not sure if the dorado would look ok on the v10, hahahaha

    You are right, I think the Dorado will look best on the Intense M9.
    Do you know if the black chrome coloris the same as 2010 (Tracer VP for example) or is it that new "gunmetal" grey as seen on a M9 at Eurobike?

    They should be the same color, I think it looks more lighter grey because of all the lights etc, but the color from eurobike looked really great!

    Kovariks bike is stealth black, not black chrome. I am not sure about those frame on eurobike. Is it painted in gunmetal or black chrome?

    That eurobike frame color (on the wall) is one of the standard colors, black chrome.

    I never was really that fond of it...until it got applied to an M9 and now I think thats what I want!

    Elegant, yet burly.

    yeah, seems that the old standard colors aren't std anymore...(stealth black would have been great)


    The question about weights of the M9 frame was already posted but fits better here.
    Is there already a answer?

    Cheers

    We are looking at between 11 to 11.5 # depending on size and color with RC4 & steel spring,
    raw works will be lightest as PC adds at least 4 oz. (1/4#)

    Hey jeff, any chance you've got a reach/stack measure for the larges yet? Met up with a guy riding a medium up at mammoth, and it looked about the same size as my large M6, but I'd like to know for sure.

    btw, that yellow looks sick

    Link Colors and Decal-Editions?

    I got some more questions on M9's details.

    Is the standrad color for all links and G3-Rear ends still black-ano?

    Which options of decal colors are available? Is there a huge variety like as there was for the 951, or only the black and white editions like on the m6?

    When will the first M9s be shipped to Germany?

    All links are black.

    Decals are black and white kits only. (for now, possible custom decal shop coming soon...POSSIBLE ;-) )

    Shipping begins sometime in October (as listed on the initial PR a couple months ago)

    Just order the M9, if you can afford it. I recently became a first time dad, so I will probably not ride DH much in 2011, but I thought, what the hell, got sa really good price fom my M6, so ordered the M9, can't wait

    The tire looks super close to the shock and its not even in the short setting in the pic of the yellow M9.
    Is the tire going to rub like on the 951 in the short setting?

    Mine is scheduled to arrive sometime next month. Would be nice to have something to help keep that CCDB from getting plastered in sling. Looked hard @ the V10c, but the CCDB and "Made in USA" won out.

    Looking for a clarification on shock options. The original press release from intense had stated that the RC4 was stock, but have read on different threads that the CCDB is now stock. Another site had quoted that the CCDB was a optional $50 upgrade. Can anyone clarify what is stock and what is the cost to go with the CCDB if indeed it is an upgrade?
