Customer Bike Check: Intense Carbine 275

At Art’s we are in the business of making dream bikes a reality. One tool that makes that job easier than breaking Lindsay Lohan out of rehab is the Bike Builder. The Art’s Cyclery Bike Builder allows you to take your dream mountain frame and spec it to your heart’s content. You can dress your shiny new Pivot Mach 6 in a full X01 getup or reward yourself with a Tracer 275 complete with Enve hoops. The world is your oyster, my fellow dirt devotee, and Art’s Cylery has the shucker.

The latest build to come out of the Art’s Cyclery bike forge is this classic all-black Intense Carbine 275. Highlights include a Rock Shox Pike with 150 millimeters of delicious travel, a full Shimano XT kit, and a sturdy, yet sexy, Renthal cockpit. Feast your eyes on this masterpiece and know that one of your own is just a click or two away.
