    How can you not like the frame? Its the best part!! Intense decided to give the owner an option for cable routing. The guides on the underside of the top tube are the way that they originally had them on the 6.6/5.5 etc, but lots of people had bad issues with cable rub on their frames. So...someone in the Intense forum suggested they give us an option while the bike was still in the prototype stage, and they listened!! How cool is that? It may be a few grams heavier but who cares?

    As for the head angle, the bike was designed around a 545mm A-C fork, and with a fork like that, its supposed to be 66.5, however I have a 572mm A-C fork, so its slack for sure.
    Keep in mind this is my ski resort/DH build, and I'll have some lighter wheels and a lighter, shorter fork for the more regular days.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys!

    Great looking bike. Black taco would look a bit sweeter IMO... might match the wheels well. I echo the poster above, black parts look great on this bike!

    I originally ordered a stealth black frame back in June, but I changed to white at the last minute, and Im so glad I did. I already have a black on black on black kona, so I thought they'd contrast well

    Yep you're also the guy that got this bike for me, and the one with the 33 lb superbike SS!! I highly recommend Competitive Cyclist (specifically E2), they helped me out all the way through the process, did me the favor of installing the headset and went through the frame to ream and face it and double check tolerances, and still is helping me out after the whole transaction. Thanks again Eric!

    Damn you. Now I have to change my pants.



    Super sweet rig, dude. Seriously. You might want to rotate your chainguide clockwise a bit to get the boomerang out of harm's way. Otherwise it looks like you're gonna smash it inevitably.

    holy sh!t that thing's pimpin' though.
    I kinda wish my brakes actually worked, but I guess that just makes me faster, right?

    I know I wish I could!! Its already rotated as far as it can go, otherwise it would be where it should be, I had to remove some material from the upper guide already because it was noisy as hell when the bike was properly sagged. The trouble I had with mounting the guide was a little excessive and it made me wonder how well the ISCG standards are defined. But oh well I guess, it works

    Mr. Bacon, can you confirm or deny the "flexiness" of the the rear wheel, as described by others during Interbike?

    Like how I try and come off official?

    Wow. That's amazing. Not the bike, SMT complimenting somthing with a Manitou fork.






    The bike is impressive. Really good looking. BB height seems kinda high though. Is that a 180mm Travis?

    I thought the Uzzi was what I like from Intense. Now I know I want THIS!

    I want your frame and your brakes so badly! xD





    BTW, nice song that one from your avatar. I would say "I want to ride your bicycle"
