It's somewhat a pity that Intense stopped making this gorgeous ride


It wouldn't really rate in the tops in any category, but I still like the Monocog

I agree. The FSR rear on that was one of the best executed licensed copies I've seen

I don't have a favorite...it'll vary depending on the type of riding I want to do. I'm not attached to anything but a wide range of bikes catch my eye. But I am going to head down to the bike shop this Saturday and might pick up one of these...



They have an '05 left over at a good price...or at least they did last week.
