    Intense Sniper long term test

    I just finished my long term test and review on the latest Intense Cycles Sniper. I am brand bias to Intense being from the Temecula, CA area but I didn't know if a 100m bike would fit in my quiver or not. take a second and check it out.

    Nice writeup. Looks like Intense might be into something with this rig.

    I feel a SC Tallboy vs Sniper comparison is in order.

    Any creaking issues develop? Another poster said their demo creaked like crazy and others demoing at the same event complained about creaking too...

    At the risk of sounding like always complaining my Sniper - after my first XC race- does creak.... Don't know where the sound exactly comes from thou

    On the Sniper XC, check if there is any side to side play in the shock on the front mount. Some bushings have a little bit of play which will create a clicking sound when getting out of the saddle and mashing on the pedals. If you notice any play in the bushing contact Intense for spacers.

    New Sniper owner here - super happy with this bike! Iíll post some more info later, but I discovered my creak was coming from the seat and top of the seatpost. A little fiber grip seemed to do the trick.
