Mr. Intense (aka Jeff Steber) just posted some photos and short details about their new 2009 Team M6 evo in our Intense forum.
Here are some of the highlights.
Thanks for the sneak peek, Jeff!
“Its that time of year and I am getting frames ready for some of the teams & riders we work with. This is the refined version of the M6 evo we were prototyping last season based on racer input from Matti Lehikoinen & the boys from CRC team.”
“The frame features the G3 adjustable drop out and a new Adjustable headtube with + or – 1 degree. The headtube is very simple & light and uses the same bearing peices as the internal 1 1/8″ flush headsets in the rotaiting cups. You can still use a standard with this setup .”
“The frame has the ability to run both the 10.5X 3.5 shock for 9.5″ travel and a very m6 type feel or the 9.5X 3″ shock for 8.5″ travel and a livlier feel while maintaining the same leverage ratio. The mono tubes have been slimmed down and the frame comes in at 9.2 lbs.”
