When Intense sold that frame, it came like that and with 3 different Cane Creek Angleset top cups, (-5*, -1*, -1.5*) so you can easily change the top cup and the head tube angle. The bike also has 3 position adjustable Rear shock travel and progression as well as rear chain stay length and bb height. So you can tune to different DH courses.

😂 Thanks bro! I’ve been on Speedplay’s since they first came out years ago. They are only 200g with the ti axle or 250 with stainless, (I have both) they have lots of float, (easy on the knees) and easy entry/exit. Unfortunately Speedplay got bought out by Wahoo and isn’t making them anymore, (but luckily I have spares). Lots of carbon on the bike too, wheels, cranks, seatpost and bars. And ti bolts on all load bearing parts and alloy bolts on non load bearing parts. But, the Onyx hubs are heavy and I could also loose another 170g when I switch to a 7 speed cassette. So if I had lighter hubs and the 7 speed cassette, I think It would be under 32lbs. But I’m happy the way it is now. My Uzzi is also pretty lite too, under 29lbs🤘🏻😆

I think Steber's bikes are still beautiful. I think he would still make aluminum bikes if he could, but no one would buy them.
Mostly everyone wants carbon......

I am over my Carbon phase. I had 2012 Tracer 2 and loved it. Then i wanted a carbon bike now after years of carbs i find i want a sweet alloy bike.
I wish Intense would do aluminum bikes again. I would buy one definitely
