How many times have people asked about the Intense hardtail and when it will be available? 4 trillion? 5 kabillion? Since the answer is still unknown (other than the cryptic 'maybe in 2009' answer), how about some photos of JD Swanguen's bike?We grabbed JD at Sea Otter and pulled him aside to get some info on this mystery machine.
Mountain Bike Action, look out.
When asked about details, he didn't say much...
Nifty head tube junction.
"What about geometry, JD?"
"Uh, I don't know, but it feels good," he says...
This is where most Intense frames have a shock and pivots. Not this one.
"What about weight, JD?"
"Hmm, not sure. It's light though," he says...
Form and function all in one.
"Will it be available to the public, JD?"
"I don't know, but I'm stoked I got one," he says...
Stiff, stout rear end for the sprint.
"Is there anything that you actually know about the bike?"
"Yeah, you can't have one, right now," he mocks. Thanks JD! The jealousy has sprouted and is growing more everyday.
Engineered and not over-built...perfect for the MTX track
