    I really love that color too!!!!
    I think I'll start a thread dedicated to dream bikes in your unlimited choice of colors.
    Which color would you choose? Obviously Intense is gonna be the answer for the dream bike choice.
    Yes I'm gonna do it. keep an eye out. This thread is coming soon.

    Good job! Intense frame color

Mine weighs about 32lbs, but I could run some lighter wheels, just need to break these ones first.
    Nice bike, may I know the color of your bike is it chrome blue or works blue?

    My T2 just got some DMR Vault pimpage after my Superstar pedals fell apart...again!





    Slightly wider and longer than the Superstar pedals, same profile. Build quality is top notch too!

    My bike is Chrome Blue. The sun sort of washes out the color in the pics, so it is a little brighter then in looks. Thanks a bunch to Dave at Redstone cyclery for help putting this together.

    Hi quickneonrt,
    headset cc angleset is a zero stack and from personal experience, I suggest you use the cup -1 if you want a real steering angle of 66.5 degrees.

    Yes, I bought the Mavic adaptor for the T2 before Intense decided to launch it with QR.

    I ran the SX wheels on my Heckler and noticed quite a bit of flex, but even with QR the T2 is massively more stiff than the Heckler so I'm not so bothered about going 142x12 now. Not say I won't change my mind in 6 months time though.

    I have sort of tall stack height because of the Point 1 stem so it should not be an issue

    +1 for the 2012 XT - I would like a set of those cranks. I think I saw them online, but it said 2-3 weeks before available. I'm just about to put together my new Tracer but would love to get some of those while I can still return the cranks I have but I can't wait 3 more weeks.

    Ridding impressions with a Fox 32:

    I was curious what your thoughts were with the frame and having a 32 on there rather then a 36. It seems like rocking a 36 is more common with this rig but I'm kind of curious how the 32 holds up with your riding style. I'm somewhat torn between picking up one of those closeout deals on Jenson or saving up some more cash for the latest frame version. I also heard that the new frame is more in the AM/DH world where the older verison is more the XC/AM world. I plan on using a 5in fork rather then a 6in. There was a interesting article on pinkbike on the new marz coil 44. My riding style fits into the AM world. I used to have a stable of bikes but slowly sold them off and looking to have a solid all arounder. I'm slowly getting away from the FR/DH world and I don't XC from time to time, but I'm a fan of climbing up but being able to hit stuff on the way down. I live in Hood River, so Post Canyon is in my backyard so it's up and down and stunts along the eay. Anyway, enough of me rambling. I'm jealous of everyone's builds!!!!! Thanks for the help.

    Z

    ZM - I'm going the Talas 32 route with my new build as I plan on using the 5.5" setting rather than the 6" and would classify myself as more of a trai/AM rider that likes to hit the occassional jump along the way. I live in SoCal and most of the trails I ride around here are don't warrant the need for a extra suspension and I'm a believer in not lugging the extra weight around if you really don't need it. Hell, my current ride only has a Talas 100 and very rarely do I actually bottom out on that so if figure the 32 should be just about right IMO.

    Here's my T2 after months of waiting for parts. Haven't really tried it on the trails yet because it's been raining here in the Philippines for a week already
