    According to an Inside man at Intense cycles, a welder, their is no changes for the 2007 M3. Still the 150mm or 135mm dropout and the 83mm BB shell. Rumors about the FRO version (2 pounds lighter and 3,5'' shock stroke were pieces of ****...This bike is actually called the SOCOM or 6,66 prototype) I guess I said everything!

    FRO is not the Socom

    Socom is a new bike coming out next year....very sweet looking

    FRO is a lighter M-3 and is for sponsored riders only....there is no warranty what so ever

    Ahh c'mon Timber, the SOCOM will be available in few months or so...And I was not saying that the socom was the FRO version, I was saying that the 2 pounds lighter bike that the rumors were naming as the M3 FRO was the SOCOM!

    From Intense Website...
    June 6, 2006

    The Highly anticipated SOCOM (6.66) is close to being in production. A final prototype has just been released to R and D for final approval. It will have Eight point five inches of travel and run about a pound lighter than the UZZI but handle like the M3!!

    no doubt, SMT used to ride a FSR linkage and was an alleged know-it-all as far as that was concerned. now he thinks he is the new intense know-it-all because he now has one......

    SOCOM (For Race Only=FRO)

    Actually there is a SOCOM For Race Only frame. I have seen the custom head badges for these and they state FRO on them. These frames are being made in a limited qty. See the posting from Intense in the manufacturers area. I have one on order and it has a 2 year warranty. Heard it from the people themselves. Just a heads up.. Will post picks when i get it built up. Hope to have it before i hit Interbike. If the hit production before then.

    Ellsman1 soon to be IntenseRdr!!

    the SOCOM is lighter and has more racing orientated geometry (its a race bike).

    and no bob, the SOCOM isnt Intense's answer to the VPF. its a race bike with a low BB, a slack HA and is meant to run lots of sag. the VPF is a hucking bike with a higher BB, a steeper HA and isnt meant to run lots of sag.

    Jesus people, it's NOT THAT HARD.

    The Uzzi has taller, more trail/FR geo.

    The SOCOM is a RACE bike, with M3 geo and Uzzi travel at a lighter weight. It's for Sea-Otter/Fontana-esque courses, or things that don't require a full-blown DH bike.
