 I have ridden with a few guys from the Intense Bombers team and they are all cool. I have also run into a few people here in San Diego on Intense bikes who have had their frames crack and break. Everyone one of them ended up paying out of pocket to get it fixed. Specialized and Santa Cruz have lifetime warranty, what is Intense's warranty? Why should I spend my money on an intense carbine and not a SC Nomad or a Speci Enduro?

 100% agree just had my M6 crack in 5 different places on my rear triangle. I know from friends that specialized and Santa cruz wont let u down. im converted.

 My question is this: Give these bikes are made by hand at a small company why can't they come or have somewhere on the down tube or anywhere on the bike like a build number.... 99 of 1000. or something like number 105. if something like this isn't possible why not have the staff sign the bottom or different places on the bike to give it that even more personal touch something that will let us feel our bikes are even more unique just a thought since i just bot 2 bikes tracer 275 in green for myself and a tracer 2 in hot pink for the wife and would of loved some kind of uniqueness to them :-)

Thanks

 I own two intenses and think this would be an amazing idea, the bikes are one of the most unique bikes around and this would just seal that.

 My daughters white 951, she keeps it in the living room. I do not object ;-). Great frame.

 Hey maybe someone should ask about torque specs, so that you don't strip out your link while putting your Double Barrel back on your bike!!

 Urm, so this isn't a live chat within Pinkbike as other manufacturers have done, it's on the CC website. And you need a CC shock to be able to register - So I assume the chat is about Intense and CC shocks. That's a pretty small target audience right there! I'd have loved to ask some questions about my old 5.5 which is one of my all time favourite bikes, and my current Socom. Never had any experience with CC though so... I suppose I'll just kick the dirt here a little then shuffle quietly away. And I was momentarily excited.

 Don't I feel silly now I was thinking this was a live chat right here on pb. Same here was wanting to ask about the intense 66 best AM bike I've used

 I would have purchased a Carbine 275 last month if you made an XL. I test rode the L but it was just too small and I'm only 6'2, Im not a giant or anything. Does Intense loose money by producing an XL or is there just no profit? Any plans for an XL is the future?

 When will we see a carbon m9 frame? Jeff hinted at it a long time ago, but still nothing.

Will we ever see the tazer ht feame the sponsored riders had, with vertical dropouts and not overbuilt in thr rear triangle? I want one of those with a 23" toptube.

 I have ccdb coil on my m6. I've barely changed the recommended settings off the cc website aside from hsc (+.5 turns) to resist bottoming. I ride whistler flow trails mostly. Do you have any recommendations that may compliment that style of trail?
  • + 1
 Our Base tune is a good overall starting point. Any changes made from there are rider and trail specific. Which is exactly why we developed the Field Tuning Guide to lead you through the process. You can download it here: canecreek.com/resources/products/suspension/double-barrel/DB_Field_guide.pdf If you'd like a pocket-sized edition, you can get it from us for $6. at www.canecreek.com

 when is that cane creek dual crown fork coming out?
  • + 2
 With our engineers so focused on a better butter churn for our new shock oil, its hard to say when the fork will hit the market.

 Will you attempt to join up with DVO for a DH team? Much anticipated DVO products and your frames seem to be a good match and would the attention would benefit both companies. (You are geographically close as well for testing.)
  • + 1
 That would be sick.
  • + 1
 Intense need to team up with BOS suspension, but I do admit the DVO styling will look cosmeticly amazing.

 Need to get the 2012 Uzzi tune up on the CCDB site and a 2012 Uzzi manual on the Intense website...I am on my second season here...
  • + 1
 We have a tune for the 2011 Uzzi on our website canecreek.com/products/suspension/double-barrel/base-tunes and are working with Intense on the tune for 2012. Look for it to show up on a New Tune Tuesday in The Lounge canecreek.com/products/suspension/lounge
  • + 1
 Awesome! I used the 2011 tune as a starting point, but as you know the 12 mixed things up a bit. Overall the CCDB is amazing. I've been searching around for a Ti coil @350x2.5. Is this offered from CC?

 wish they'd do this for the FOX shock. Mind you I believe I have mine set up pretty good, and change it up regularly depending on course conditions...

 I've noticed... many of the product reviews and or updates are things that Pinkbike users... WILL NEVER OWN!

 That's funny as hell!!!
  • + 1
 While it's obviously a joke, that whole "adjustable adjustability" thing is something that would actually be really awesome.

I mean the idea behind Fox's CTD is pretty cool... but it's somewhat hindered by the fact that you can only quick swap from a few different presets.

It'd be interesting if you had like a 3 position lever... and every single position's attributes could be completely customized. So one position would have a certain set of rebound/HSC/LSC/anything else that you may use for climbing... another one will have another totally different set of settings for something else.

It'd probably be impossible to do without electronics, but I'd say that's definitely the future.

 What set up would you recommend for running a DBair on a Tracer 2? High volume can? I heard it can be hard to use the full travel with the VPP design..
  • + 1
 Go to this link and enter the Tracer2 : canecreek.com/products/suspension/db-air/base-tunes These are the settings Intense developed with the standard air can.

 Love my intense 66 but rear end flex was so so bad I just had to sell it. Why not bring back the 66 but make the rear end much stiffer ?
  • + 1
 Ps I did buy a tracer 2 after the 66 hoped it would ride like the 66 no flex but just didnt ride like the 66. The 66 was gold best AM bike I've had really think you guys had it nailed with the 66 .bring it back with no rear end flex and iscg mounts and ill buy one .cheers
  • + 1
 Yeah do agree I own a 6.6 and love it, it can do anything I throw at it. As you said those few touches plus a tapered head tube and it will kill the all mountain market.

 Well I thought this was live chat as well, then gave up, now I'm back. East coast dealership: that's all I must say to spark my non Internet interests in intense.

 I would never change my RC4 for a Double Barrel, ever.
  • + 0
 Any reason for such statement?
Last year I switched to RC4 after my old CCDB got damaged.
Guess what: after couple of months I went back to new CCDB cuz it's simply better. Period.
