Depending on your preference (I like these), the mudhugger ones are really good. I really like the look of them too

Looking for some recommendations for fenders for dual crown fork.

I see these nice bolt on fenders for fox 38’s. But nothing like that for dual crown ohlins?

Should I just get one of those zip tied fenders?

My old fork manitou dorado has a real nice bolt on fender, miss that fender lol

These are much nicer and more effective than those flat plastic ones.

I’m looking for an intermediate downhill/ freeride bike. Is a 2016 intense m16 any good? I mean isn’t any bike good for freeride?

The M series are truely dh race focused bikes. If you want a bike that just soaks things up and goes fast they are great. If you want something a bit more lively they aren't really it. Great bikes, just very focused on race where as say the 951 evo they made had a bit more playfulness to it.

I have a M16 and in 216mm setting it's very peddle friendly IMO for a DH bike, in 240mm setting is super plush. I'm considering running a 190/180mm SC 29 fork and a 11speed and using it for Enduro.

I can second this. I also had the 2 position lever added to my DHX2 to make it even more pedal friendly when i feel like riding my M16 on trails.

When i got my bike-used also-i had to replace the lower link bearings/axles. Previous owner must have torqued them to the point they crushed the tube in the link and was causing the bearings to lock and unthread the pivot axles...
