Without sounding cynical but is the reason we don't have an intense hardtail because of money? VPP linkages & shock technology all add to the cost of around $2000 for an intense FS frame. I don't see a hardtail from intense being sold at that figure unless made with exotic materials.

An intense hardtail spider like the ones currently being used by your racers. I'm sure there would be a market for such. Even if the answer is" we are fully booked and have no space for more projects" then I hope in time you'll have an intense hardtail for trail use available to the masses.

Its definitely not because of money, it's all because of time, demand and capacity. We're just 24 people, 8 CNC machines, 4 welders and one giant toaster (heat treat oven)

I will say there is a HT planned in the near future, but not an XC HT. :eek:

Dude- sign me up I want one..........the camo spy photo in a magazine(I forgot which one...Decline?) a few months back had me drooling. I think it should have sub 16" chainstays, maybe even a little higher bb hieght than an STP, so you can run 24s without hitting your pedals when cornering hard. I know my buddy I ride with would be interested in one aswell.

Some nice short chainstays would be awesome.

damn color , you can't really see the frame , but then again i guess it was sorta the object of this color :rolleyes:
The color is just to hide the dents in the frame. It had a pretty big one at the downtube right were the S of the INTENSE decal is... :D
