What? No Intense listed!

I voted my second choice Specialized, since I just got my new Enduro SX frame.

I don't have a favorite, so I just voted for Giant, because I've got one.

But we do have a disproportionate number of Specialized nutcases running loose around here...(my best biking friend loves Specialized, so I'm hating them out of spite.)
