Very nice. Which intend fork is that. I run a flash on my kavenz and it’s incredible. How are you liking yours?

Thank you! This one is an Edge 160mm.
As you know, their products look awesome. Plus, the performance is second to none.
It was a risky move because I sold my previous Fox 36 (which I loved) to get this one, but I am happy with the result as the Intend works as well as the Fox, looks better (imo) and is more exotic.

Nice!!! I as well came from a fox but a 38 and find that the flash is superior. I have more confidence in the rough and my hands are much happier. Also agreed that the intend looks much nicer. The ability to service it yourself and Cornelius’s transparency is bar none.

Hi there. New to this thread. This is my XC-Down Country-All Mountain-commuting-Enduro-MiniDH bike.

This is a very cool bike. I think it’s an Intend stem but what bar is it?

That looks SOoo rad. I like these frames a lot. Now is that really slack geo' with a long rear stay, or is it just the view in the pic? Just looks real slack. I like that style suspension link too, kinda' always remind me of some Kona Process bikes I like. I'll bet that handles amazing. That's impressive. That's totally sporting the "get outta' my way" look!

It is currently at 63.5d HTA and 442mm stays, so yeah, pretty slack and pretty long stays, yeah.

Put the Enduro back together with new suspension (38 + DHX) and a 10spd xtr/xt franken drivetrain. Only a couple rides on the new suspension setup but it's already tracking better than ever, even with the 2.5 DHF which I'm not big on. Really happy to be back on this bike

Have you had any of the bearing seating issues or rocks getting in bellow the chainstay that some people are getting on their enduros?

Posted: Sep 16, 2021 at 22:11 Quote
No bearing issues of any kind

Never had any rocks get stuck below the chainstay, but I have recently added moto foam between the linkage/frame interfaces to be safe

Makes me want to put together a 190mm enduro with a 190mm zeb, although i'm not sure how much i could ride that around here, would probably just end up as a park/shuttle bike (and i've only shuttled once this year)

Nice spex', that IS cool. I'm starting to like these bikes w/slack geo. I'd assume that thing can feel "planted" and really grab the terrain. Do you ride it like a DH bike or ride more trail/enduro?

There are almost no shuttleable trails in my area, so I pedal it up the hills.
It gets ridden like a DH bike on the downs though..

My current bike is a long term ride. It had a big refresh this year, did much of the work myself and have been riding lots of trails and km (close to the goal of 2000 km in the current 5 months). It's 150mm f/r and only 28.XX lbs. Here it is on a recent ride.



Since then, I managed to rearrange the seat pack and it's collapsed again.

I've been riding this MTB for years, with thousands of km... & know it well. Still improving as a rider every year too...
