Intense owner's – let's see them
Personally none, but three riders I ride with and several others I know via the Pearce series etc all broke their 951’s some waiting 6months and one up to 9month for Intense to warranty replace them because Intense couldn’t keep up with the demand for replacement rear ends. I wont start on the Socom i know of that with the Mis-aligned top tube, whose warranty replacements ISCG tabs snaped and then the warranty replacement of that’s chainstays broke.
I dont have much experience of the non DH / FR frames but the M1 / M3 / M9’s were notoriously snappy in the chainstays.
It’s a shame as they ride great and look good, and Intense honour there warranties pretty well, but I couldnt be done with waiting 6-9 months for a replacement.Posted 4 years ago
Just re-read my earlier post and it does sound slightly more damning than I intended. They were all DH bikes rdien like they should be and raced. Still probably shouldnt have snapped.
Like I say lovely riding bikes.
Theres a few 29er frames on Jenson for $800 at the moment too if anyone wants a cheap one.Posted 4 years ago
Here’s mine which arrived from Tweeks cycles earlier today.
So after much time deliberating over the phone on what specification to add to it, Alastair had Sam in the workshop build me this up and packed well in the box even if those pesky Parcel force munkys had ripped the end of box open to see what was in there!
Well here it is, a shiny Spider
Couldn’t be more pleased and can’t wait to start riding properly again.
Seems slack enough on car park test with a 140mm fork and not too light but just right.
Feel the VPP hug the ground instantly which I bet will track the ground very well which I have heard from other Intense owner’s.
