Brand: Intense BOS
Intense 6.6 frame purchased brand new and been in my ownership since it left the shop.
Those that know me will know that my bikes are looked after with no expense spared. This frame/shock has been maintained to the highest level.
A full frame rebuild and fresh powdercoating was carried out in February of this year. The frame was professionally stripped (NOT shot blasted) and powder coated in matt black. New decal set, OEM Intense bearing kit was sourced from Extra UK and applied along with frame protection tape in all the right places. Whilst the frame was in a raw state it was fully inspected for cracks, none found. Since the rebuild the frame/shock has done 6 days riding.
The VPP linkage system is in my opinion one of the most superior riding systems available. Small bump sensitivity is excellent and the bike always feels planted on the trail. With the addition of the BOS Stoy rear shock the bike rides superb and it will be the plushest frame/shock you'll ever ride.
The BOS Stoy........one of the best coil shocks available on the market. Before fitting a Stoy to this frame I had a Cane Creek Double Barrel. The Stoy has a far superior small bump compliance over the CCBD and when pushed hard on big hitting trails performs second to none. Wee Dirt review here:
