Intense Hard Eddie – Sneak peek

New carbon fibre 29er hardtail

Hot on the heels of announcing their first foray into carbon fibre with the full-suspension Carbine, Intense Cycles have released pictures of another new composite bike, this time a 29er hardtail.


The new bike is expected to be unveiled at this week’s Eurobike trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany and all we have to go on at this stage are these arty photos and a name – “Hard Eddie” or “Hard Eddy” (the frame says the former, Intense’s blog the latter).


Features look set to include a tapered head tube and BB30 bottom bracket for improved stiffness, post mount rear brake tabs, internal cable routing and Intense’s G1 modular dropout system, which is compatible with a host of rear axle standards. We’ll bring you more on the new bike as soon as we get it.
