That’s just a stupid self indulgent waste of time and money. You need these. Thanks

Further to my last, There’s a specialist builder in North Bristol that can fit the tubes for you. Not sure if they guarantee its integrity should you wish to ride it in anger. They’re on face book. I know he can be a bit difficult to work with and if time is an issue he may not be for you.

Its a bit far, can you guarantee the integrity of the finished product during transit?

Intensely intensity!

Stole the bits off my Fisher

XT, LX, DT Swiss, with a Manitou fork.

Rides a lot nicer than the Fisher.

Some tweaking to do before its first proper ride

8) got to love an Intense, beautifuly engineered and a great suspension action.

The frame looked smaller when you got it, not that i was hoping it wouldnf fit, and i would come to the rescue and give it a home :( , but it looks more your size now built.

Move the shock to the lower fitting to lower bb height/slacken head angle.
Remember you can also adjust the wheelbase via the dropout pivots.

Oh and......(extends hand palm up) ahem ahem....

Looks very similar in design to a specialized fsr. I guess they paid them a license for the Horst link design. They do ride eerily well too. Changing the shock mounts to slacken that angle is a good idea should make a good all rounder.
