Mike XT says:

The category between cross country and enduro has been around for a long while. It’s called the trail bike category. Anything from 120-150 can fall into that range depending on geometry.

Sam Long says:

what trails are those? they look hella fun

John Terpstra says:

I do like the concept of riding a non pro bike. I think most people would purchase the basic version. The average rider really doesn’t need a pro bike as nice as it would be.

Rick Louie says:

I like the review of the non pro components too. Nice to review while you are actually on the trail too.

scott wilson says:

I’m ordering this bike . Now I’m haveing issues on choosing the size . I’m 5foot 9 . would the L be to big with 150mm dropper? . I normally like a big size but I’m worried the large would hit my ass when hucking jumps

Mountain Biking Simplified says:

Great video, definitely subscribing for more videos like this

Bullseye Fowl says:

Sick you are at Greer! Makes sense, Intense is a local company. Double Ds

Will McElroy says:

Intense bikes look sooo good!!!!!

Soso64bit says:

How does sizing work for this new bike? I hear the frame fits a bit smaller. I’m 5’10” and Intense’s website says a large would be ideal. Any input? Great video, keep it up!

Peter Tran says:

I’m 5’6″, riding a Recluse Pro medium frame. The cockpit is indeed long, which makes the bike feel so much bigger. Experimented with different stem lengths. In the end, I slapped on the Renthal Apex 35mm. Was very concerned that it would make the bike twitchy. Not a problem at all since the head tube is so slack. Try it out!

Jason NOT Bourne says:

Saw the Pro version at the shop, this bike is a beauty. Intense does make nice looking mountain bikes.

Christopher says:

This channel will earn my sub from now on – like your style!! 🙂 Keep it going just like this – differentiate yourself from all the pro build reviews out there – but really, who can afford a + $6000 bike “this year” ? Thanx for this though!

Spencer Han says:

Same as ACV almost…

The MTB Crashing Dad says:

The seatpost most likely has play (suspensioning) due to it being stored in the down/compressed position… taking the air chamber from 250 psi to 700 psi… which is a lot of pressure for rubber seals… so the air leaks into the fluid chamber causing the play/suspensioning…
moral of the story: always store your dropper in the UP position 🙂

Bullseye Fowl says:

They probably didn’t do the hydraulic fluid right

Lambert Mixson says:

congrats on hitting 100 subs dude! love the channel, keep the vids coming!!!

Eric Russell says:

Great video. Just found and subbed to your channel. Looking forward to seeing more to come!

MtbFiend says:

Rad bro!! So thats your friends bike you are borrowing?

California MTB says:

Always wanted to ride An intense bike, sweet bike

Jason NOT Bourne says:

a dude on craigslist has a 2017 intense recluse for $5,000
