Intense all round machine, 15 years old now can't believe that. MBR gave bike of the year to the Spesh Enduro 2003 but I think this was a close second with value for money letting it down in comparison plus high maintenance for the bearings in harsh UK winters.

Haha, yes! Indeed that’s the intense saddle you sold me :) Intense bikes deserve to be red, especially the old M1’s. Love the responsive, quick steering the 5.5 provides but some people don't as it saps your energy quick also :)

ahhh yes......but black and red decals are up there too! I was particularly drawn to black and the almost black looking midnight blue. Surprised we don't see more Intenses even though there's a few on here, most must be hidden or not active for a long time
