Buying an Intense frame is close to a fantasm for many riders. A frame is handmade in the US, it smells US, it works well et and costs a lot… and we talk only about the frame kit.
Intense cycles just reveals a complete bike based on the Tracer 275 called Tracer 275 Foundation. Key idea is to propose a bike with a very adjusted price and a tight selection of components. No Fox or Rockshox for suspensions, you find here a combination of X-fusion products. Drivetrain is SRAM ready, wheels are Sun Riglé Inferno, components such as stem, seatpost, handlebar comes from Intense own naming products. It would be perfect with an adjustable seatpost but it costs too much..
So, the price for this beauty is $3400, equivalent to 2500€ for us.. but it’s not a good economic rule to think like this ^^…
Intense cycles does not reveal many things for now since the Foundation was revealed through a post on the online magazine mbaction
More news coming soon.
