    I am 6'1" ~205lb and the bike fits great! I test rode the medium and felt "slightly" cramped and this was coming from a medium demo9. I will be riding this weekend so more feedback to follow!

    Thanks!

    Going with the Holz was tough because I wanted a saint crank but couldn't pass up the white cranks to match! (I must say my last pair of Holz never had one problem though!)

    Are Intense aware that people use chainguides on dh bikes? How bloody thick do they have to be no to elevate the chainstay or offset it to allow for a chainguide.

    Either way, it looks bloody nice.

    behind you, don't wait up.
    Looks GREAT!
    Between the 951 and the new Uzzi, Intense pretty much nailed it this year.
    [size=-3]assuming these things don't start cracking or bending after normal use![/size] :D


    Phfft ... the RC2X was and still is a killer fork. It might not be the latest thing but it works and its hardly a "weak link".

    Yeah, this is the main reason why its still on there. This fork has never given me any problems and never once do i worry about it! I am going to give another vendor a try soon though just to see where other vendors are at... Ride impressions will be posted soon since I just finally took it down a mountain! haha
