Just for interest, can you tell us what the new numbers are, and the reasons that led you to the new numbers? Thanks!

P.S. The grey scale camo is pretty funky compared to the green. I think I'd almost ride that. ;)

Great to hear that you're experimenting with the numbers before going to production. No better way to do it.

The Mavic wheelset you're using lacks a little in the lateral rigidity department. They're certainly rideable and lots of people get many miles out of theirs, but not optimal.

Just thought maybe you might wonder where some of the rear end wag was coming from!

I'd be happy to build you something more suited to the bike (in weight and lateral rigidity, not to mention bling) when you get to that point.

Follow the link below if interested.

of the rear tire clearance. Looks awfully tight.
I'll bet that with a photo in another direction, the clearance isn't as tight as it might seem. I cannot imagine Intense designing a bike with out factoring in clearence. Especially knowing they shortened the c/s on this prototype.

Just find some reviews on the 26" Spider. And remember: PROTOTYPE
I friend of mine has a 26 Spider and complains about how susceptible it is to junk damming up around the lower pivot/swingarm area. He's gonna try to fabricate something out of plastic to reduce the buildup.

Are you able to swap the rear triangle between the two proto frames to try the different geo. combo?
No not yet, this bike was just built Weds and will be ridden this weekend with the Reba from the other 29r, waiting to get more RS forks for side by side testing, R building a 26 spider with identical setups to side by side comparo.
