Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Light, Fast, Long Travel, Quiet, Great Climber

Cons: Not as nimble as smaller bikes, which is to be expected... Press fit BB VPP linkage collecting dirt/debris

Recommendation: The Intense 29er is a great all around bike. It is my first 29er and it took a bit of time getting used to but I love it. It rides really quiet and is fast up and down the hill.
