    Intense announces that it is the latest major bike brand to add a big wheeled carbon bike to its line. The Hard Eddie can be rocked full rigid or with a little squish up front, and it looks badass. Check out the pics inside.

    Intense Cycles recently announced the launch of its all new Hard Eddie bike–the company’s first hard tail 29er.

    The Hard Eddie was designed for the cross-country rider that appreciates quality and does not want to be ‘just like everybody else on the trail’.


    The frame weighs in at about 2.5 pounds and comes with 135mm, 142mm and single speed dropout options. The ride quality comes from the refined Intense geometry and quality frame construction. Sticking to the successful formula used in the creation of the popular Carbine and Carbine SL, Intense used the design talents of Jeff Steber, and the Engineering skills of SEED Engineering to create another carbon fiber work of art.


    Hard Eddie frameset is available in two color options: naked red and naked. Intense also offers a matching rigid carbon-fiber fork option. With 100-millimeter fork Hard Eddie runs a 70 degree steering angle and 72 degree seat angle. The PF30 bottom brakcet and integrated headset both help to keep the frame light weight and stiff.

    With the optional matching carbon fork, this bike can be built up to be a 18 lb race weapon, or a light weight street rocket.












    Hard Eddie is Shipping Now. Check out Intense's site for more details.
