Hello,

I'm a real fan of the old intense bike. I thus decided a few years ago to collect them.

One of the most important thing is, i use my bikes for my differents rides, it's not just collection bikes, it's players bikes

I begin with the intense uzzi slx i've buy last month too Beepbeep.

His text about the frame :

A 2002 model that I bought NOS in 2006, and then built-up in 2007 if my memory serves me right. As you can see in the photos it’s in great condition, it’s lead a fairly sheltered life as an all-mountain ride for the forests of Sweden. The only bad points being a small dent in the headtube from the postage to me, which I carefully pressed out, and has caused no problems since (shown in photo below) and a scrape on the left chainstay (also shown). Has been helicopter taped but still has the odd cable rub mark. Bearings and shock are fine.

It’s a versatile and tough frame with technology borrowed from the M1 – with adjustable top tube, shock mount, head angle and wheelbase. 6” or 7” of travel (7” only possible with included 5th Element shock).

The shock also has loads of possibilities for fine-tuning and has been upgraded with a titanium spring (original steel one included). Also included are adaptors to run a regular QR rear wheel plus Intense and 5th Element manuals.

Size small/16" with a 22" or 23" top tube.

Go !

Next time i speak about my wife uzzi sl

Looking great Simon! Love the forks 8)

Enjoy it, I think this will be a real classic in years to come, it was one of the first do-it-all frames on the market.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of your collection! :D

Hello,

Now the intense uzzi sl !

Image

This frame is a prototype created by Jeff steiber on the basis of a classic uzzi sl but with an anodisation on the place of the paint.
There was only 3.
Galand Hervé boss of rsp import the first importer of intense in France fell in love with this version and managed to have one of it.
He was used by vuillemin David for a report for a French magazine mountain bike mag with Nicolas vouilloz

Now that's cool! 8) 8)

Bet you're happy to have something special like this! I'm no expert, but it looks like the headtube gusset is different from the production models too. Looks great in grey.
