Intense stopped making this frame!

Bottom Line:   
Have always dreamed of having an Intense XC frame... finally found closeout for the last year of this production 2013 -26" and couldn't pass up the opportunity!
Beautiful bike, light, strong, long adjustable travel.
Responsive in the tight technical stuff and rail like on everything else. Climbing has no bob with the VP.
