wow...seems like you are on top of the scene, my bad....1. most factory workers in Taiwan are not Taiwanese, the wages are too low...they are predominantly Thai...so they do not own homes, they live in local dorms, and do get fed three squares in the factories, and send all their money back to Thailand...and as the Thai Bhat gets stronger they are moving to higher wage jobs elsewhere and Indonesians are moving in..2. the only significant maker of carbon frames in Taiwan is Giant, and they do feed their workers twice a day with the option of dinner for overtime...3. the majority of carbon is made in China, by Chinese workers, who do live in dorms and eat all meals at the factories...4. I am relaxed

"Made in the USA means you get what you pay for. All of the employees at Intense have shoes, are American and sometimes get pizza for lunch on the house." ...dumbest most ignorant comment ever....I never heard of "Griz" and ..I really don't care...just please do not let him write another ass kiss article that ends with a racist slander ...oh and for the record ...all of Intense's carbon bikes are not made in the "Good Ole USA"...they are made by Asians that are served breakfast, lunch and dinner with free housing, and they are all required to wear shoes in a spotless state of the art factory...

looks very blown out and rutted ...not looking world class ...maybe a great test of courage and skill but looks like the WC was already there and gone..damn ugly in places with crappy falling away sidehills cutting across construction sites and dirt roads....hope no one gets screwed due to the condition of the course

very tough crash ...could have gone a lot worse...very happy Taylor came out OK....the young pinners certainly are not built like a Gee or a Mik or a Brook and I would applaud seeing HANs devices and back protectors as mandatory for Junior racers...would be a real shame if any youngster had a life changing injury that could have prevented by protective gear....

So Dorel's got Denk working on GT now, too. What a coup it was to swipe him from Scott.

It's no beauty queen but the still above looks better than Atherton's bike did last week.

@eestinkay....I missed the forum rule that mandates a probationary period on posting...how long should I wait ? this is not a set off of HB state park...the point ?... history...thats the point ...thats why I brought it up...I am a GT fan so I felt it should be mentioned that GT did a very similar ..Production model. 4 years ago...and yes the bike above is a nicely done product....will be great to see it in production one day.....and... I only point out spelling errors on smack talk posts...

agree on all points...never stated the IT-1 was a WC DH targted product..If I recall the bike was marketed as a FR platform ...hence the emphasis on no rear mech and stronger rear wheel build .

.was merely reveiwing the philosophies and technology talked about in the video and stating that IMHO they are derivative and not revolutionary....

Glad the URT comment got editied.

GT did not use a Gear box, they used a shimano 8 speed nexus, just like this bike ..with a transfer chain, , just like this bike ....wtih a patented idler wheel that positioned the chain to locate along the swingarm to cancel out pedal feedback...just like this bike....with a symmettric rear hub and shock actuating linkage a to tune the rate and a very high pivot to optimize the wheel....just like this bike......

Nicolai is true "gearbox" design in my book....
