How does the coil perform with the rising leverage ratio of the rear swingarm?

Zink has been buddies with Gwin for a while. I think it was Gwin who pushed to get Zink on YT back when he was. Any chance he would go to Intense with Gwin?

I would be practicing some muddy slime tracks if I were a Gwin.

Okay, I think I wrapped my head around it. Here's a cross section drawing from a Pinkbike article:

If I annotate it with the spring and air compartments in the manner I think it's laid out, we get this picture:

It has 10mm more travel but is steeper head angle (+1.5), shorter wheelbase (-1") than its "trail" bike. I don't really see why anyone would pick this over the Spectral next year.

I uploaded two pictures, one of a carbine and one of the Tazer, but only the carbine showed up.....

If you look at the Intense Tazer, one of the models named in the lawsuit, it does not have a straight seat tube. In fact, I think all of the bikes named don't have straight seat tubes. Having an actual seat tube angle between 50 and 75 degrees and connecting

We bought the tubes all over the place, wherever we would get them :D

Welding was done by a professional welder, including heat treatment afterwards. Because yeah, you need to know what you are doing, when welding aluminium, and i dont sideways

That's amazing. The bike just looks ridiculously clean and tidy for a home project. Who welded it? As I understand it, welding aluminum frame tubes is significantly harder than welding steel. I guess the biggest benefit is that machine time goes way down for making all the bits and bobs out of aluminum...more

Under 40 pounds... jeesh people need to do some push ups. Would take that over some brittle plastic any day. Rad looking bike dude!

The welding (and heat treatment) was done by Ingo Müller.
He is also welding the Kavenz Bikes for example. I'd say he's pretty good wink

Thx! smile

It's the 6-Gear Version with 295% range. Pretty much the same Range as a SRAM DH 7-Gear Setup.

The reason for the Gearbox was first of all less unsprung weight on the rear wheel (about 450g),
which makes the suspension more active and supple / plush. Which is the whole point of a DH-Bike suspension...more

Yeah, we went save, especially on the chain- & seatstays in terms of wall thickness.

But i'm pretty happy with the overall weight of 17,9 Kgs.

There is no Carbon on the bike (except the handlebar), the rims are amongst the strongest on the market, the tires are true DH-Casings and no air shock.
