Just built up, nothing but parking lot tests to set the sag. Feels like it's going to be a perfect compliment to my SS. Gonna take her out tonight and thrash her good. I can hardly remember a time that I did't have an Intense in the stable and each time I build a new one up , I'm reminded why that is.

37.8 lbs on my Ultimate Digi scale as she sits with UST DH casing tires.

Note the new Corsair pedals, very similar to pedals that I've used in the past with some promising enhancements. Grippy as hell!

Damn that is pimp, nice touch with the CCDB & works blue color.
Ti spring on the way once it's sorted but I do dig the all black in the particular instance. Note the removal of the blue from the Fox stickers on the '09 40. Kinda nice to see a change there and the blue on the frame is enough.

Good work!! Loving the works blue!

I keep looking at Socoms, and trying to work out why they look slightly better than my SS when they are almost identical frame-wise. And now i realise - i don't like the decals on my SS, i prefer the Downtube Intense decal, and the TT Bike name. The SS decals are a bit rubbish - Custom Decals here we come!!!
