bending/breaking chainring bolts, and/or tabs, because a half bash transfers all of the force from an impact into just 2 of the tabs. I didn't come up with any of it, this is stuff that's been debated for years. It's actually one of the reasons they came up with ISCG mounts in the first place, they wanted to make a strong mount that could withstand some part of an impact, in order to distribute load better, because even with a bash, people were bending cranks, either at the CR bolts/ tabs, or at the BB spindles, or at the crank arms. thesis is spelled with an i.

the only concern is where the load is placed: a full bash transfers the force through all 4 CR bolts/tabs, while this only transfers through 2, plus since it's not got any structure of it's own to absorb the force, ALL of the force gets transfered to the bolts/tabs. It may not matter in practice, but it's food for thought. If I go back to having a bash(which I'm considering) I'll probably run something like this + a taco, in order to spread the load out better.

Intense M6 Medium, Cane Creek shock & extras

$850 USD
Got an Intense M6 here, bought it off someone on PB, & I'm not entirely sure if it's a 2008 or 2009. Frame is in good shape, it's only got one major dent, shown in picture. It's got a Cane Creek Double Barrel, with a 250 Titanium spring, & I have a 350 Steel spring as well. I also replaced the lower rocker, as it had a non-structural crack: so you'll have a spare that can be used in a pinch. I bought some replacement main pivot bearings, but never had a chance to install them, you'll get those too. It's also got an I-beam post & seat, and a really nice headset, Cane Creek 110, it's for a straight steerer, though the bike has a 1.5" headtube, so you can run any fork you like with a different headset. I've also got lots of parts that I can sweeten the deal with, including a nice eThirteen SRS that matches the frame, so just ask if you need anything else. I'm selling the frame because I bought it 2 years ago, & took it out once in that whole time, so you're getting a bike that has 2 years less riding than normal for 2008/2009.

If you look at some of the other BH bikes, the headtube in that shape is something of their trademark, the other Lynx models have a similar, though less extreme, profile, as do their Ultimate hardtails.

It's going to be polarizing, some will love, some will hate. I think this is probably one of the better looking examples personally. No desire for a 650b bike with a 66 degree HTA, though. too slack bike is too slack.

probably because HT makes a lot of people's pedals. They're one of those infamous Taiwanese manufacturers that makes everything that you hear about.
