Core Show and The Bike Place - Intense Bikes and Hope

These shows are getting big news these days but there's loads of exciting things that I think everyone should see. Both of these shows are reserved for the trade and press but it too good not to share! 

There's loads to say about all of this but I will keep it brief.

Intense Bikes

Tracer 275, available as a frame or a build kit. Frame set comes with a Fox Kashima shock but the build kit is equipped with X-Fusion Forks and rear shock as part of the package. Orange is the standard colour and there are some other colours in the range available as an upgrade. The Orange is super bright!

Other bits from the intense stand include a XX1 equipped Spider 29, Hard Eddie 29 frame set and the Carbine 275 frame (in a rather good matte black and yellow!)

XX1 still looks weird with that crazy cassette.

The Hard Eddie is on my Christmas list... Full carbon fork, internal cable routing, replaceable dropouts for 142, 135 and single speed. WANT! Matching fork looks well in the matte colour scheme. 

Carbine 275 is what people really want. It seems to have everything you could want from your everyday full susser. 


These always loads of pretty-ness in the Hope room but this time there were two rather famous bikes. One of which from a recent TV programme. Guy Martins Rourke built, Hope spec'd speed bike was great to see. You can tell this bike wouldn't have been easy to design or build but as we know, it's one fast bike!

The other is Martyn Ashton's Pinarello from the recent crazy trials, road combo video. 

The new purple colour way is going to be popular I'm sure. Seeing it all in one place gives me ideas for a bike build.. It's a great addition to the range and we will have it in store ASAP!

More Show pictures to follow.
