Intense runouts.


Not necessarily bargains, but with the lack of supply might be worthwhile for somebody.
I just got this email too and my first thought was - how on earth are bike stocks non existent yet Intense still have stock to clear?? They must really be in strife

Don't the carbon frames have a bit of a bad reputation for cracking?

1K for a carbon frame. I have not connection to this so can’t comment if it is any good but someone buy it as I am saving at the moment

Checking out pushys and they have some pretty good priced fox stuff.
Socks $10
XXL Dirtpaw gloves (pretty much an XL size) $15
Fox Flux $50 (not mips)

Giant Reign 1 2020 L- brand new frame
A$1,500

is this a bargain? NFI. but it's in narre warren nth, VIC by the looks, so local burners might want to look it over in person.
hard to tell if new with all the packing foam etc and in a plastic cover. One hopes that the seller is legit, but it's facebook, so YMMV.

@Plankosaurus do you need a reign frame?

Pushys have the Icetech RT86 Rotors for $72 - 203mm which is cheap when you add in the %12 off toooooo

Could someone mention to @HamboCairns these will improve his braking abilities in a more efficient manner than xt 4 pots .

I can vouch for them as a chunky 100kg rider !

Don't buy from mtbd as they are $89.......

Don't ask me how i know
does anyone know the rotor thickness of the Icetech RT86 ? or have callipers handy to measure them?

Would they work on Formula R0 calipers? I think the Formula rotors are 1.8mm. pretty sure 2.3mm is a no-go for R0 brakes

@Boom King would you know? or have you only used formula rotors on yours? (I know you are on curas now but I seem to recall you having R0 brakes at some point

Now $400 on gumtree... Anyone know how much it costs to ship a frame from east to west coast?
I've posted frames for around $20 via Aus Post. Wrapped in bubble wrap and then a layer of cardboard cut to fit the shape of the frame. I think Aus Post stopped charging by cubic and now only go by weight. Except for their online calculator - that's a clunky POS.

Can depend on who you get. One bloke here still gets out his tape measure trying to cube them....but I always make it a dog’s breakfast of a shape to thwart him.
Agreed on the price. $18-25 max if done right.

Hahaha! Does his tape measure only read imperial too?
I go to the Black Hill PO, they always chuck it on the scales there. I've sent all manner of weird and wonderful shaped parcels. I found out last week that they are open on the weekend - if you ever need to get something shipped out on a weekend @moorey

Any suggestions on a reasonably priced tubeless compatible 26” XC tyre?
I’m planning a rebuild of an old Ellsworth Truth.
