Anyone own one/ridden one? All the other Intenses I've ridden (including the slopestyle I own) have amazing angles for descending - so I was curious if this one with the 27.5 was as good. Kinda thinking about getting one ;-)
Just got my Carbine out to the trail for the first time this morning...and it rips. I'm running it in 26" mode until I get a 27.5 and 142x12 parts that I need. First impressions are very good, though I need some more trail time on it to get it dialed. Only have one ride on it, but I see my Pivot Mach5 going up for sale soon.
As far as I understand, I believe the carbine 275 is basically just a carbon version of the tracer 275. Same travel, .5 degree headtube angle difference, same wheel size obviously, very similar bikes. I don't think there will be a "carbon tracer" because I think the carbine is that bike.
If it was my money, I'd probably get a tracer and not worry about the carbon
