Intense knocked it out of the park with that color way. Absolutely love it.

Do revert with your findings once you have ridden it with that X2

Will do, was going to add a megneg to my Super Deluxe R or buy the X2. Problem with the X2 is I'm 230 pounds/104kg and the max pressure in the 2018 X2 is 250 psi. I'm at 240 psi and already at 32% sag. First proper DH runs on saturday so will see how it goes. Need to get my shockwiz off my mate.

The Carbine is very progressive so I'm mindful of the plushness already

Does anyone know the size of bearings I need to get for the 2018 intense carbine lower link? The bearings on the linkage that attach the rear triangle to the front triangle/ the bearings where the grease port is

Yep, I regrease mine every few months. You need use a grease gun with a pointy tip that pushes the ball in and opens the port.

Can get the tips and gun at diy hardware stores and it threads onto the grease gun which you then POKE and inject fresh loada grease

This should be done fairly often consistent with amount you ride

An air jet wouldn't hurt if you want to get all anal bout flushing dirt out

I find that it helps if you loosen off the axel so that the old grease can get out As you inject the new grease in.

Have a recommendation for a cheap one?

I’ve never had to do that. My old grease comes out as I pump in the new grease. The seals in those bearings are designed to allow grease to pass through so its not necessary to loosen anything.

I use this one with a tube of Slick Honey grease.
