I carry an Intense 5.5 full suspension mountain bike, and enjoy riding in mountain bike parks at ski areas, and do some local riding. depending on where I am, on local trails. Being from Southern California I have spent a lot of time at Mammoth Mountain (southern Sierras) in their bike park riding downhill on single track.....sometimes up to 50 miles per day.
chockwald, the Intense is my favorite bike. I have two of them and would love to switch things up a bit and haul them on or in an RV. I'm loving my new Tracer 275 with the 5.5 - 6" of adjustable travel.
