Intense Cycles is known for its handcrafted, championship-winning race frames, and is regarded by many as the “Ferrari of the mountain bike industry.” How does a company born in 1992 gather such a prestigious reputation in such a short period of time? Let’s take a quick trip back in time to see how one man’s idea flourished from the kitchen table to UCI podiums. In 1991, Jeff Steber designed and constructed his first full suspension mountain bike in his garage, and the following year would see new additions to the frame such as CNC machined parts and sealed bearings. Then in 1993, Jeff decided to try his luck and go public with his product at the 1993 Interbike trade show, and his gamble paid off. Jeff sold every frame he had and then some. His success with the short travel frame fueled the passion to construct a downhill specific model, and the unparalleled history of the M-1 was born. The M-1 needed some serious testing and exposure before it went public, so Jeff went to work on rounding up his first factory DH team. Little did he know that his team and its members would become legendary: Randy Lawrence, Mike Metzger, and Shaun Palmer. Palmer brought to the DH racing world an attitude and race style that will never be forgotten, and one that rarely lost races. The spirit of the original DH team set the standard for Intense Factory Racing for years to come, as well as raising the bar for other manufacturers to step up to. It still has yet to be met. Intense race frames saw an ever-increasing demand with other racers and manufacturers, and established a new standard for competitors to follow. The M-1 saw action under the likes of Brian Lopes, Eric Carter, and Leigh Donovan of Mongoose, John Tomac of Giant, Gregg Minnar of Haro, Toby Henderson of Iron Horse, and of course John Kircaldie, Colin Bailey, and April Lawyer of the multi-championship winning Maxxis DH Team. Indeed, Intense Cycles’ image and heritage in the industry is unmatched by any other racing or factory effort as they continue to establish the benchmark in product development and design.
Project: Restore Dad's Bike
Project: Restore Dad's Bike
I've been wanting to do this project for awhile now. I'm restoring/updating this Schwinn High Sierra for my Dad for Christmas. I think it's a late '86 model. I picked up some NOS Suntour Roller Cams on eBay a few months back as these are missing some parts. Planned work: -Strip it down to F/F (check) -Clean up -Check parts for replacement (so far: brakes, brake/derailleur cables/housings, tires(maybe)). -Re-pack bearings in hubs, BB and headset -Ergon grips -rebuild/tune up. Can't wait! I'm glad he wants to ride it again because it's a cool bike and would make a rad commuter if he didn't want it and I had the space.
