I'll update this add with pics soon.... I have a large 2014/15 Intense Carbine 29 frame for sale. It's a 2014 front triangle with a 2015 rear end (bigger, stronger swingarm). Some scratches but nothing crazy, it's actually pretty clean. I also have it mostly wrapped in protective film. The swingarm looks like it has scratches but it's the carbon weave that makes it look like that with the flash on my phone. Rear axle is 142x12. The lower link is new as well as the lower link pivot bolts. Those were replaced because I needed one bearing wore out in the old link so I got lazy and just ordered a whole new link. Comes with the following: -Works components -1 deg headset. -RaceFace 30mm pressfit bottom bracket that I just rebuilt with carbon paste so there's no creaking. I might still have my Shimano 24mm spindle bottom bracket too. -Either an Avalanche tuned Float X, OR a Push MX tune DHX shock (rider weight of about 200-210 lbs). -RWC needle bearing kit on one end of the shock. I ain't looking to get rich. I switched frames so this has to go! BTW, I'll get rid of those decals on the swingarm.

Edit: the pictures suck so I'll update them soon! Selling my set of Nobl TR33 wheels. 29", 33mm OD, 27mm ID. On black Hope Pro 4 hubs that work amazing well: 142x12 rear 100x15 front I had the wheels in the shop just for the sake of it last season but otherwise I haven't had to touch them. The shop just added some tension and that's about it. Some nicks and scratches but no cracks or anything that compromise the strength. The rims normally go for $500 CDN on their own.

Vorsprung Announces Smashpot Coil Conversion Kit
I guess you weren't around when coil forks were the norm right? No matter how good you think your air fork is, a coil spring is better than an air spring. Why would you need a revalve by switching to coil??? If you weigh 200lbs, you have to add enough air in the air spring to make it stiff enough to keep you supported, right? Well with a coil spring, it's the same thing; you have to choose the right spring that's stiff enough to keep you supported as well.

First Look: Marzocchi Bomber CR Coil Shock
Craig at Avalanche has always said the Fox Van RC shock was a good platform to get good results with custom guts and tuning. If he opts to work on this shock, you'll get something that's overall cheaper and better than anything else out there.

28T Race Face cinch chainring. Cinch...non boost. Standard spacing. I forgot I even had this in my parts bin. This one was used on one ride, literally. I'll get pic uploaded soon.
