It's a pretty rowdy bike, which is hard to get at lighter weights and the fork isn't the lightest but works so well!

That is how the drive side of the front hub is on the Tune hubset.

11/6 is always an option but I also want to ride this on some epic longer rides and at about another 0.75 of a pound of weight AND another few $$$$$ didn't really add up for me. The frame is quite dialed with the DPX2.

I didn't want to add it all up...hahaha but mostly funded from my previous builds having to be sold due to living in a new area that didn't really work well for the previous bikes.

Took a while to build up and sort out how I wanted to do it! But I am very happy with the outcome!

hahaha I appreciate it! It's definitely a radically different look, but rides like nothing else!

Hey Jake. It spins up nice and quick as there is less rotational mass...breaking and tossing it around isn't bad at all!

Hey Duc, the XTR chain doesn't play nice with any other rings other than XTR (which are MIA along with the cranks). A little break in with the first ride and it's not bad.

I both work for absoluteBLACK (and as much aB products as I could put on there are present).
It also says "absoluteBLACK" on the inside of the downtube.

Added a comment about feature First Look / First Ride: Intense Spider 275C 3/31/2016 10:19 AM

Granted YT makes a proper bike, that you can't argue that it does the simple aspects of what a bike needs to do...but what sets the Spider 275c apart it as the ride quality, the service (tell me you've seen a more detailed and user serviceable owners manual and I will buy you a beer), aesthetics and name brand product (no unbranded product to be seen)...these are all things a boutique brand requires and utilizes to set its bar high compared to bargain priced bikes. Granted the $$ speak a lot but that's what makes it unique, special and not just another package in the mail.

Give it a go some time. You are more than welcome to give my Intense Carbine 29 a run for it's money too.
