Will post in UK

Selling my Intense Carbine 29 SL frame. Size XL. 29er wheelsize. Purchased new by me in December 2018 direct from Intense UK, this remains the current model in Intense’s 2021 line-up of bikes.


  • Excellent condition: 9.5/10 cosmetically, 10/10 mechanically.
  • Almost indistinguishable from a new frame.
  • Full carbon SL frame – carbon front and rear, plus carbon top link (alloy on lower frames) and titanium hardware.
  • Size XL.
  • Includes headset, seat clamp, 148×12 rear axle, Race Face BB and spare mech hanger.
  • I’ve left the dropper and rear mech outers in the frame.


  • You’ll genuinely find it difficult to tell this apart from a new, frame.
  • Listing all blemishes for full disclosure: small chip in the paint on driveside chainstay adjacent to rearmost ISCG tab; slight chips in paint to underside of driveside chainstay adjacent to rear mech; two small marks on non-driveside seatstay; and some marks in paint on rear of non-driveside dropout – all pictured.
  • Headset and BB both in excellent condition.
  • Invisiframed from new, now removed.

More info:

  • Rear shock: Rock Shox Deluxe RT3 with 3-position lever (open, pedal, lockout). Shock bushings in perfect condition with no play whatsoever.
  • 155mm rear travel.
  • Designed for a 160mm fork.
  • Boost 148×12 rear spacing.
  • Internal cable/hose routing for mech, dropper and rear brake.
  • All bearings replaced in May 2020 – I can count on one hand the number of rides I’ve ridden it since.

Geometry for size XL:

  • Wheelbase: 1253mm
  • Top tube: 675mm
  • Chainstay: 445mm
  • Headtube: 120mm
  • Reach: 471mm
  • Stack: 641mm
  • BB height: 348mm
  • ST angle (effective): 74 deg
  • Head angle: 66 deg
  • Seat tube: 483mm
  • Recommended for 6’0-6’6 (184-197cm)
  • I’m 186cm and used it with a 200mm dropper and still had approx. 35mm of post showing before the dropper post collar.

Information from Intense:

  • The Carbine SL frame is the lightest version of our 155mm travel 29er enduro-focused race machine. With a super light monocoque uni-directional carbon front and rear triangle, carbon top link and titanium hardware, you’re getting a truly pro-level frame to which you can add your own selection of components. This is the same frame used on our Pro-level and above bikes, saving weight over the normal modulus type used for our Foundation and Expert full builds.
  • The beautifully finished frame also includes integrated Boost 148x12mm dropouts, internal cable routing, internal seat tube routing for a dropper post and integrated down tube and chainstay flack guard protection.
  • The Carbine SL frame comes complete with a high-performance RockShox Deluxe RT3 shock.
  • Once you’ve built up your Carbine, it’ll be one heck of an enduro monster.

Selling because I barely used it over the past 18 months. Lockdown left me without many opportunities to ride it locally – I’ve found I prefer a shorter-travel bike for what I ride or even (whisper it) my gravel bike…

Viewing/postage: Inspection and collection possible from Falkirk/Stirling area. Collection preferred but I’ve got a frame box ready to use – I’ll use a 48hr service requiring signature on delivery, fully insured, at cost (approx. £50-60) but happy to try and accommodate an alternative postage option if you arrange.

If I’ve missed anything message me with your query.

For background checks I’m on biking sites such as PinkBike, Singletrackworld, etc with username ‘a11y’.
