Intense has just unveiled the redesigned 2011 951 downhill mountain bike, the “younger, punk kid cousin of the M9-FRO” pro model. The American-made DH rig is not only redesigned with frame improvements, it’s now cheaper, too. God bless the USA, no?

Intense says the 951 is made for downhill runs, but works just as well doing sick whips at the bike park or going out of bounds for some freeride adventures. More pics and full specs after the break…

Algun fabricante ha pensado en hacer bicicletas para descenso con ruedas de distinto diametro?.
Me explico:
Por que no construir una bici con una rueda delantera de 29 pulgadas, i la trasera de 26?. No funcionan así hace años las motos de enduro i cross?.

Si alguien se decide a hacerme caso, que pinese que la patente es mia!.
Un abrazo.
