When I had my first child and gave up my on the side racing 'career' a few years ago, it also meant giving up the bikes that I was riding on for sponsors. It was Intense that I laid my hard earned cash out for after several years of riding sponsor's bikes. I have always thought that Intense has one of the best, if not the best, craftsmanship and attitude of any high end suspension builder. They ride bikes, they love bikes, and they build beautiful works of art. I picked up a Tracer and it did not dissapoint. It was worth every penny that I paid. Fast forward to now - I finally got my first couple of bikes in as an Intense dealer. It feels good to become a larger part of the Intense family.

I was super stoked upon the arrival of a large 6.6. I had seen a few 6.6 pics but nothing super detailed so I thought I'd snap a few for everyone to see. The whole bike is gorgeous and the details are exquisite. This bike will soon be built up for a Front Range demo. I can't wait to get it built!

Nice looking frame!

That color looks nice! Are the stickers gold? I think I've seen some either grey or silver. Those stickers would look good on the Ti gold color. Great photos! I like that solid piece in the rear. It looks like it might help keep some dirt and mud out of the pivot area.

Hey ignazjr, just wanted to say thanks for the props and the hookup with the 6.6 Demo.
We like you have shifted our focus or I should say some of our focus from racing to growing our" Demo Tour". This has been a valuable tool in growing our brand and connecting with not only the racers but the lifers and weekend warriers intersted in Intense products.Cheers to you and keep up the good work!!

Come on now, if you're sharing the 6.6 pics, you should share the 5.5 pics too!

Hi there,

Just wondering if you have any pics of the bike built up?

I've just ordered a large 6.6 in Orange and am curious to see how a large built up 6.6 looks, especially given the larger gap that makes up the seat post/top tube gusset.

well, erm, soon is a relative term. I've been pretty busy with other projects and it's been on the backburner. Looking at about 2 more weeks. It's going to get built for steep and technical (up and down) backcountry CO riding, ie - I'd like to come close to 30lbs. Can't wait to get 'er going. I'll have some pics up for sure!

I'm curious as well. That's a long seattube and a relatively short cockpit.
