3. WORK IN PROGRESS
The M29 isn’t pretending to be a finished product, which is why the team frames have a raw finish and are wrapped in vinyl graphics.
4. LINKS & LEVERS
Like all Intense bikes, the M29 uses a virtual pivot point suspension design, but it has a reconfigured pivot arrangement that rotates around the BB. The lower link has been designed to keep the shock as low in the frame as possible too.
5. OLD CODES
SRAM launched new Code downhill brakes earlier this year but, interestingly, Dean was still running the previous-generation Avid stoppers at Fort William.
