2011 Intense M9 FRO - Previewed

Nov 13, 2010 at 12:13
by Fraser Britton  
Intense, the name synonymous with race bred downhill bikes. Jeff Steber and crew have been tweaking and fine tuning their latest offering on the World Cup circuit under some of the fastest racers on the planet over the last 2 years, and are ready to take their crown jewel to the masses.

The result of that work is the M9 FRO. Race bred, factory tuned and ready to go. Check out what the M9 has to offer!


Intense M9 FRO


The Intense M1 is perhaps the most famous downhill bike in the short history of our sport. It has won title upon title, often re-badged as another brand. Downhill, as a competitive sport, owes much of it's early rise to the M1. Riders on the M1 were suddenly going bigger and faster than ever thought possible, and if you didn't have an M1, you wanted one. Intense didn't rest on their laurels however, and has been striving to create what they believe is the ultimate downhill race bike: the M9 FRO.  Their newest creation may well be Intense's masterpiece after 16 years of racing. The bike was developed with the input of the <b>#1</b> World Cup team in 2010, as well as many top riders from around the globe, and they believe that they have created

Downhill, as a competitive sport, owes much of it's early rise to the M1. Riders on the M1 were suddenly going bigger and faster than ever thought possible, and if you didn't have an M1, you wanted one. Intense didn't rest on their laurels however, and has been striving to create what they believe is the ultimate downhill race bike: the M9 FRO. Their newest creation may well be Intense's masterpiece after 16 years of racing. The bike was developed with the input of the #1 World Cup team in 2010, as well as many top riders from around the globe, and they believe that they have created "the best handling downhill bike" ever produced. Those are some big claims to live up to, does the M9 have what it takes? With more adjustments than a chiropractor, the frame can be molded to fit all styles of rider, and all styles of courses - this bike is not just a one-show pony. Just to get things started, our frame came fully built from the factory, but it is not representative of an Intense build kit. Wanting to get Pinkbike a bike as soon as possible, they built this machine using some spares that were at Intense HQ in Temecula and meant for their demo fleet. It is built sturdy, that's for sure. Intense did manage to include the creme de la creme of shimano parts for drivetrain and braking though, the same as their race team. When build kits are finalized, they will be posted on the Intense website. As soon as you pull the bike out of the box, you realize you have more than just a downhill frame. The craftsmanship on this bike is second to none. Handmade in their factory in California, this isn't your standard mass produced bicycle. The welds are gorgeous, the paint is flawless, and there are details like grease ports on the main pivot that you certainly don't see every day. Intense told us "we don't weigh bicycles, we ride them." and it wouldn't be fair to weigh the bike as delivered due to the non-standard parts that were used. A medium M9 with paint, headset and steel coiled Fox RC4 is 11.6lbs claimed weight. Complete bikes with Fox, Shimano Saint and Deemax's runs about 39.5lbs.
The M9 FRO comes in 3 sizes, with a range that will fit most riders.  At 5'5
The M9 FRO comes in 3 sizes, with a range that will fit most riders. At 5'5", the small surprisingly feels quite compact to me, especially after coming off of larger bikes for the last few years. Riders of smaller than average stature take note, this is a great thing as normally it is a huge pain for smaller riders to find a bike that they can truly feel comfortable on. Intense has had their fare share of issues over the past years, but as of 18 months ago or so, it's a completely different company. The frame issues some saw on M1SLs are a thing of the past. From Intense: "As its been reported all over the web and print media, Intense is still owned and operated by the same guys (Jeff Steber, founder and designer, probably works 60 hours a week here, always has) But in the last 2 years Intense has converted to a new philosophy in design, manufacturing and customer service." Intense's spokesperson continues: "For 2010, our manufacturing and customer services processes have been significantly overhauled using lean thinking to ensure that they flow more efficiently and effectively. We are confident that the identified and continued improvements will ensure that our products are made on time to the same exacting standards, with no extra economic cost to you, as customers. In addition, if defects are made, we are confident that they will be remedied as quickly as possible with minimal hassle to the customer." It takes balls to admit that there were problems, and step up to the plate to make the changes necessary. With that in mind, I was more than happy to give the M9 a shred, and felt comfortable in giving it a fair shake.
The M9 FRO is not inexpensive, with an MSRP of $2950 USD, but that does include a Cane Creek AngleSet along with the Fox DHX RC4 rear shock. The AngleSet allows for extremely easy head angle adjustments, simply by swapping around some cups. The best part is that Intense has partnered with Cane Creek on his frame and has used a headtube that features a pinch bolt that you can loosen to make swapping the cups that much easier. There's no fussing about when pressing cups in and out on the M9, it's simple and easy to do with your fingers and one allan key. The bike includes 0 degree, plus or minus .5 degree and plus or minus 1 degree cups direct from the factory, so you are ready to go as soon as you receive your new frame.

The M9 FRO uses a championship winning VPP suspension design and through the use of a flippable chip in the bike's lower linkage you can easily change the travel from 8.5" to 9.5" of travel in half inch increments. Looking for a slightly snappier bike that you can pump easier? Run it in the low setting. Want it to gobble up the rough stuff on a particularly nasty track? Set it at 9.5" and get ready to rock and roll. You get one centered 9" travel chip, and one offset chip that will let you get to the two extremes. Although it isn't new, there is no denying that it's an ingenious system and extremely easy to use, only requiring a few minutes and one hex key.
Once you have your travel sorted out, you can get your suspension setup dialed in. The M9 will come with the option of a Fox DHX RC4, or for only $50 USD more, a Cane Creek Double Barrel. Whichever shock you choose, you can use one of the three forward shock mounting points to adjust the suspension rate to suit your tastes. If you want a more progressive feeling, drop the shock into the lowest mounting hole. If you want it more linear, raise the shock up to the top mounting hole. Intense has gone to extremes to make sure this frame will keep everyone happy, no matter your shock choice, riding style, or terrain that you're on. You have no excuses for not getting this bike dialed!

Last but certainly not least, is the G3 dropout system. These non-symmetrical dropouts allow you to fine tune your chainstay length, as well as make slight adjustments to the bottom bracket height and head angle. The G3 dropout is an extremely elegant solution. Held together by two standard chainring bolts, you can move the dropouts in unison to change your stay length in .25

The G3 dropout is an extremely elegant solution. Held together by two standard chainring bolts, you can move the dropouts in unison to change your stay length in .25" increments. Making a .5" adjustment in chainstay length will have a massive effect on how your bike handles. Cornering will be especially affected by this, so choose wisely! Each change made to the dropouts will change bottom bracket height by about .125", as well as change your head angle by .25 degrees.

Check out the Intense website for more information.

Sure, it is a mega adjustable, go-fast bike, but the boys at Intense say that by simply selecting the middle ground on the settings you'll have a great handling bike that can excel anywhere a downhill bike can spread its wings. We'll be testing that theory, as well as playing with the adjustments over the coming months and will report back with what we find, but in the meantime let's hear what you have to say about this red racer!

 "we don't weigh bicycles, we ride them."

It is like car manufacture says "we don't measure cars horsepower, we drive them"

If I am going to use 2950$ for a frame I may want to know the weight of the frame!
  • + 1
 how about the full specification of Chris Kovariks rear shock shim stack?

And well I'm pretty sure you will be able to obtain it from Intense cycles website. Plus well if you take into account that most pros bikes are above 36lbs, some even 40lbs, then for the sake of your good attitude to MTb making you a better rider: stop caring about it that much Wink

 Neg prop me all you like, but that quote seems quite arrogant. Every manufactorer in this business is here to make money and nowadays the vast majority of consumers buying these bikes is looking for the lowest weight possible. So they should and surely have weighted it many many times.

 but if alu gets too light (too little material) then it cracks. but pssssst... don't say it to V10c haters...
  • + 2
 That's a very lame response from Intense. They've physically weighed it many times, in addition to the fact that the Pro-E / Solidworks model will give you the weight within a couple % of the real-world weight.
  • + 1
 lame response yes, but shaving grams on a bike that's going to weigh a ton either way is a little anal.
  • + 2
 In my world a linkage Aluminium Dh frame that will last has to weigh min 8lbs w/o shock sorry. 10lbs w/o shock would be the upper limit. A good linkage AM frame come at 6,5lbs. There are no miracles. I mean there are but certain people say they Catastrophicaly Fail.

And every geeky goof knows it is unsprung and rotating mass that matters... and when it comes to frames it is the geometry. 1 pound won't save you when you have a 62HA... such bike can weigh 30lbs and still it is going to ride like 45lb cow, floping around in average joes hands.

 Why would you want Chris Kovarik's shim stack? It'd be way too firm for anyone who doesn't ride at the same speed that he does.

 you know I consider myself as a bike nerd. And I am very, very sad for the fact that I know as much details about everything as I do. I read about something it goes into my head and just doesn't want to leave. Lately I encountered by accident, an brief explanation of shims stacks on some MX site, as well as something on ride monkey. It was too much even for me, I just told myself no. More I know more I see that it doesn't matter..

 All of you guys bitching about workmanship have clearly not been on a 2010 or 2011 intense. There has been SIGNIFICANT changes to the company in the last 18 months to 2 years, and it shows. The issues are a thing of the past. Don't talk out of your asses about how there are bearing issues or crap workmanship. I have the bike in front of me. I have worked in this industry for 15 years, ridden hundreds of bikes from as many manufacturers. Hell, I've helped develop bikes from a couple of manufacturers and been walked through the entire process. I have seen shoddy workmanship and fantastic workmanship. This bike is as good as it gets on that front.

 Iv got to be honest, its not a great looking bike, it looks too big and too chunky. There are much better looking bikes out there such as the banshee legend mrk 2, turner dhr and morewood(all of them) but it has to be said that this bike has been developed from the m1, which at one point where being raced by alot of other bike manufacturers with their own stickers on, so its got pedigree and a proven suspension platform. Id still rather have the new demo 8

 M1 was a horst link patented by Specialized as FSR, M9 is a VPP Wink

 OMG PONIES! Hm don't really like it, the way the sag and curves are in the middle it looks like its broken Frown And the curved weld around the shock, man thats ugly. Grinder!
  • + 2
 Totally Agree. The welds make the bike look old school and dated. With the welds it looses all of its otherwise awesome styling. Definitely needs the grinder onto it.

 I'll never own that cos i'm too poor. FML

 The diference betwen this 2 machines, is that the intense is much more better, because is a multi adjustable... and for someone that rides in WC circuits makes the diferrence. (not for someone who want ride in the kinder park)

 Buy an adjustable headset. A can assure you in 99% of the cases it's all you are going to use.

 You can steepen the headangle with that headset too Wink

 yip can't afford one the 'big brothers' also don't have chairlifts where i'm from so i guess my 6.6 is where it's at, they truly are beautifully made, i've had moments where i just stop and stare while cleaning my bike personally if i had to upgrade i'ld get the Uzzi, and for me Santa Cruz and Intense have always been 'sister' companies, i have a brand loyalty to both of them, but any VPP for me is the way to go, so i'm a fan of Giant as well, will be building an anthem frame up for XC racing

 Cool story bro Wink






jks. hope the anthem goes mad Smile

 Ive had 3 M9s in my hands now, not a single one of them was even close to being aligned... rear ends and shock alignment totally out. Having to do up the axle to make the rear axle width compress from 160mm to 150 is bad in my eyes. Was told there would be no warranty concerning the dreadful shock alignment. One even cracked from the shock hitting a weld when the rear travel compressed. Totally disappointed with them and personally wouldn't touch another one with a 10ft pole. I know this isn't the case with all of them but personal experience with them sent me running the other way.

 Spanking machine indeed, i would have a V10 myself. The only reason been is i currently have a nomad and previously a bullit, one can rapidly become brand loyal...Its all personal preference...

 i had an m1 and loved it to bits and i have no doubt in my mind this will be amazing to ride but been the ferrari brand of our sport i was single young and had no wife and kids back then so i think the price tag on this baby will make me feel as sick as it does to look at. well done intense as usual no half measures

 How on earth is it a V10? They both us a VPP system, but that's about as close as it gets. They are 2 very different beasts.

 From what I've seen (just my opinion before folk start kicking off) Intense seems to have pretty shoddy workman ship; we have had numerous ones come out of the boxes with the rear triangle sitting about 1" off centre, and they tend to ovalise very easily. Alongside that I have seen a fair few cracking around the welds. I would have to say Santa Cruz are much better built... On the plus side, looks like a sweet build.
  • + 2
 My Intense (socom, not the burliest of frames) stood up to all sorts of shit. I would have absolutely NO PROBLEM trusting the build quality if I were going to buy an M9 (if I were FLUSH).
  • + 5
 I back you iceman8!! One of my friend have a 951, and all the Alu bolts for the pivots were torked to much, one of the welds of the bike has past trough, so the seat post would not be placed unless he filled the interior. But he had one of the good ones!! A guy a my shop has build up quite few intense and the same problem seem to come back, the bearings were set up to tight (tolerance problem maybe?) so they didn't turn free... And the 1'' is so right!! It sucks when you pay that much money for a frame that is not even straight...
  • + 4
 Yeah you're spot on I think they have big tolerance problems as the bearings are either way too tight or ovalise/come loose very easily. No doubt if you get a good one then they are a great bike but if you are paying the thick end of 3K you would expect consistently good workmanship (eg Morewood, Specialized etc)

 I never liked intense either but DAMN SON!!!! thats a sick ride, "LONG & LOW" works good, im pedeling a RM Slayer right now and the low center of gravity "LC2R" completely makes the bike so stable and upright. I was used to the bikes that you had to have a ladder to get up onj them so it took some time to adjust being closer to the ground.
  • + 1
 I think the standard nut on the headtube pinch bolt looks a bit agricultural. I think the bolt threading straight into the frame (like on the commencals) looks better. Yeh there might be less chance of threading your frame this way, but realistically you're not going to be changing headangle all that often...
  • + 1
 . sure it might not happen... but. if you do thread your frame, you would be grateful.
  • + 1
 It is not 'threading'! If you think about it when you over tighten a bolt you are pulling the threads out thus 'stripped threads'.
  • + 1
 Yup, a steel nut isn't as light as it threading directly into the frame, but there will be no worries about wrecking your new M9 by over tightening the pinch bolt. Who knows, maybe by the time they add enough material for the bolt to thread directly into the frame it weighed close to the same as the nut so they just used a nut. Just a guess though.
  • + 1
 I will take longevity and practicality over weight any day!
  • + 1
 Local Intense dealer stopped importing Intense frames to this country, citing misaligned frames and slow/unresponsive support from Intense as reason. This is a fact, he told me that when I was asking about the price of M9. I guess this market area is not big enough for Intense? Now the only way to get Intense would be to buy from Chain Reaction Cycles, but I heard that they won't ship them out of UK? I like Intense and their designs, but in these conditions it is not really an option.

 I dont know but I would probably buy the V-10.4 it probably rides the same as the M9, my V-10 2007 rides the same as an Intense M6 and as a complete bike weighs less even though it is size L and M6 is size S, I would choose the V-10.4 but the M9 is much mo radical in shape of frame, and is much prettier to look at than the V-10 but I prefer a lighter frame with the new Rock Shox Vivid R2C2 Air for practicing some downhill but as I live some 90km away from the nerest DH track I mainly use a bike in the city for stair gaps and dirts which I find around here.

 don't mean to be a scrooge but the rear end doesn't look too lively in the top picture. the bike looks pulled back a lot. but i guess one won't complain when you're flying down a mountain that's damn near vertical. nice looking bike anyways.
  • + 2
 if you want a lively intense downhill bike then there is the 951. if you want to stay planted and mob through rocks and gnar dh at mach 10000 then the m9 is for you. its all preference.
  • + 1
 hahaha no i agree it seems like it will fly down a mountain at it's angle, i just don't know how well it will take rock gardens because the travel looks a bit short, just by the swing arms. but i guess looks can be deceiving. it does run a rc4 in the rear, hidden away.
  • + 1
 How can you tell how "lively" the bike's rear end is by looking at a photo of it? I don't get "i just don't know how well it will take rock gardens because the travel looks a bit short, just by the swing arms." either... The bike has adjustable travel from 8.5" - 9.5".

Not trying to stir the pot here, just wondering where you're coming from with those statements =)
  • + 2
 bottom line is it is meant for downhill speed over liveliness
  • + 0
 lol no the swing arms look close together and somehow don't look like they can generate a lot of travel, but that's based on external observation of a photo. by lively i mean lots of travel, by the rock garden statement, i just meant that externally the rear travel looks small. usually when you see a dh bike with "lively" rear suspension, the swing arm seems longer, in this case, now that i look at the design, it appears there is an extra link around the bb, so that's how it'll generate more travel. i thought there was no link at the bb and so that's why the travel looked short to me. usually long arms or multiple links produce more rear wheel movement, aka look at slopestyle bikes vs dh/fr bikes. it's a generalization tho.

anyways now that i see the extra link, i take back my comment on it not being lively. lol becuz i thought even tho it gets 8.5-9.5 inches, i thought it had only the upper swing arm.

hope it clears my thoughts up Smile
  • + 2
 lol i guess as it should be. i'm just too amazed by the scott gambler's versatility at dh and fr that i forget other bikes are still built for their specific purposes. i'm sorry.

 @rangemaster... www.thefreedictionary.com/lively... Your lively comment makes no sense... Just sayin...
  • + 1
 wow really dude? you obviously didn't read my earlier comments. i thought the suspension was single pivot. what i mean by lively should be obvious, lots of travel and good spring rate. if it was single pivot, the travel would be cut to about half judging by the top picture (didn't see the lower pivots) and the rear shock might snap from strain. my question to you is why do you care so much esspecally since the comment and article are from a week or two ago? if you can read the dictionary i'm sure you can read the bit where i clear up what i meant. also i took back my comment so why are you still tryin to poke it with a stick? but whatever i guess thats what you get for being on the internet, right?

 lol my bad i was on my pms or something, long day and just kinda snapped...... sorry dude. lol. this is why school is bad, makes you yell at strangers... and i personally have the lively as my definition. lol i kno people don't actually use it for that but i do. again sorry...
