"This 29er is so frigging awesome, we worked for a while on the geometry for this bike wanting to make it the best 29er money can buy, and we nailed it. It really is a game changer for me personally and I am sure it will be for every 29er rider that gets the chance to ride on of these. It is light, nimble, climbs like a hard tail, and carves the descents like the way you do in your dreams." - Scott Sharples

 Can't quite grasp how Jeff goofed and didn't equip the Carbine with ISCG tabs... This bike gets them?!? Hopefully the next batch of Carbines get guide mounts. (And an XL size pleeze.)

 Maveri.... this isn't a gravity bike. and @coletrain specifically defended 29's regarding enduro races.... not gravity riding. there's no doubt 26" wheels are still the proven downhill wheel. 29" wheels certainly are not a fad for everything else.

 Anyone else notice that it said the tapered head tube is from 1.25-1.5"???? Did they license the Overdrive 2 stuff form Giant or are they seeing a real performance difference in the bigger headtube taper?

 Pretty sure they forgot the "1" in 1.125.

 @mbjz that's the exact same question I had. Part of me feels like it's not a typo though.

 it prolly is thought cuz we havent seen any other intense bikes go that route and would be weird to see them do it on this bike

 Hope I'm wrong Smile industry doesn't 'need another standard'

 There's nothing to license. Giant never patents such simple things as tube dimensions and all OD2 is is a new headtube that accepts headset bearings to run a 1 1/4 upper steerer diameter. And it wouldn't be unusual that Intense adopted it. Canyon bikes already has.
