Bike of the Week- Brook’s Intense Carbine custom build
Brook’s carbine is built to be light and strong to compliment her aggressive yet smooth riding style. Some of the standout features are a full carbon fiber frame with our favorite full suspension upgrade, a cane creek DBair shock. A 1×10 SRAM X9 drivetrain featuring our new favorite shop upgrade, a raceface wide-narrow chainring, a Fox 34 fork and those beautiful Industry 9 purple wheels.
Why it’s cool- A 26 pound bike with 160mm of travel is always going to be pretty cool, this one is extra cool because of how incredibly capable the Carbine chassis is, the i9 wheels add to the performance level with their quick engagement, the 1×10 drivetrain is upgraded with our new ‘shop favorite upgrade’, a Raceface wide-narrow chainring which pretty much renders chainguides obsolete for trail bikes.
Brook’s bike is pretty cool because this is one amazing bike that has enough personal touches that make it 100% unique, just because every part on it serves a singular purpose of making this a no compromise trailbike, doesn’t mean it can’t be one amazing looking bike at the same time.
