Included with each complete bike is an Intense Cycles branded torque wrench set and shock pump, precision tools to keep your new bike in peak performance.
Good looking and very efficace DH machine. But after 1 day, there was already some play on the back wheel and on the headset. I hope I can fix it myself. And of course the spring was not adapted for my BW (a 550 spring is for riders of 95-100 kg). But as I said , very convincing sensations on the bike and very glad that I can finally have a ride on a XL bike!
At my first ride I felt really save and comfortably on the bike.
Most notably is the calm running, and the high quality.
I am really happy with the purchase. I would by it again and will definitely buy more Intense bikes.
