I have been riding on intense frames for 6 years. In that time I had:
2014 Intense Carbine
4 delaminated g2 dropouts (axle hanger)
2016 Intense Tracer
3 catastrophic rear triangle lower mout fractures. The frame nearly split in half.
2018
3 delaminated lower front triangle pivot tubes.

For a total of 10 broken bikes. Not one has ever lasted 12 months. I am not racing, crashing, or intentionally braking frames. However, I demand alot from the bike. I am built like a running back at 6"-0" 210lbs.

The photo is 42 months of my 72 month history with intense

Perhaps time to try a different brand lol. Stop giving them your repeat business. I would have looked for something else after the second failure.

Agreed I switched to a Specialized enduro in August. My average speed on my home town trails is up by 2 mph. I am riding faster and smoother than ever before. I am not saying it is the new bike but, I do have more faith in my ride.
