The Inside Line Podcast - Jeff Steber, Founder of Intense Cycles


Nope, it's not Wednesday. This week we're dropping the podcast early to coincide with the big news around Intense and today's guest, Jeff Steber. Intense has made the decision to offer their bikes directly to the rider through online sales. They have a unique sales model, however, that keeps their dealers involved in the process. I had a great time speaking with Jeff the other day about his history, the changing faces of Intense over the years and this new direction they've decided to take. Here's to some great discussion with one of mountain biking's most influential, inspirational and creative men, Jeff Steber of Intense.

Intense Factory Racing circa 2000.

    Great podcast as always. Thanks for these... always timely interviews/topics and we learn a lot.

    Echoing another poster's question, what happened with Palmer and the junior development team?

    Am I the only one who wants to blow off work so I can watch Chain Smoke and Headliners? I tip my hat to Intense and anyone else willing to reinvent themselves. Jeff said he likes change, many folks don't. I will race my M16 with pride in 2018.

    I thought highly of the brand before, but I have a whole new form of respect for Jeff and Intense after this. Awesome stuff.
