The Good: Most fun DJ bike i have ever riden. Easy to jump and ride fast. STIFF.
Best single speed / geared drop out ever on a dirt jump bike.
very light frame
The Bad: on the black frame the "Ed Hardy" style TAZER logo that is not removable and its not a cheap bike
This bike came in at 4.65 pounds for the frame on the shop scale wich made it the one lightest DJ frame. the welds on this frame are beefy and long wich should mean that this thing should last forever. like the other Intense bikes i have riden this bike is super stiff. my old dirt jump frame was a norco 125 frame from 2009 and the Intense is significantly stiffer. The slack 68 degree head angle make this bike feel comfortable at speed. 1.5 head tube gives lots of fork options. also nice to see the dropouts provide an option for a 135 x 12 rear hub.
if you are a park rat the chain stay is a bit long and the seat even when slamed is a bit high if your used to super low steel frames. im 6 foot tall so i run my seat up anyways so dosent bother me. Its not on the Intense web site any more so they might not be making it wich i hope is not the case because I love this bike.
