Intense Spider 29 Alloy Frame

Intense Spider 29 Alloy Frame

The next generation VPP platform of the 29er Spider makes this an excellent pedaling bike for cross country to enduro.  It shares many of the improvements made to Intenses best-selling Tracer 2 frame such as the G1 dropout and the new shock links.  The sleek tubeset adds sexy lines to the bike and the tapered headtube means a stiff front end.

Best handling mountain bike that I have ridden so far. Tested a Spec Stumpy, Giant Anthem and Trance 29er and the spider just fits my riding style well, ymmv.

It climbs as far as the rider be able to pedal it, and it handles like a 26er. Descending requires you to be on your toes with a steep head angle especially at 90mm front shock setting. At 120mm its fine. I can only speculate how good it will be with a 140mm fork.

Bought the small frame with CTD and it comes with the standard g1 dropouts along with the plastic cable tabs. It was packaged nicely and the box held up quite well.

Note: It does not come with a ISCG 05 Mounts. That's for the Spider 29 Comp.

Built it as a XC with a Fox Talas 90-120 CTD and fitted it with full XTR components. Weight comes in at 28 lbs with everything. Went with Stans ZTR Crest with Continental MTN King II.

Had some issues trying to figure out the right headset since the description was not obvious. The Intense Website DO require more work when it comes to detailed info like this. Manuals are not available online. Emails are ignored. I ended up getting a Cane Creek ZS44 on Top and EC49 on the bottom and fits perfectly.

Bottom line: If you only get to choose one bike that can do pretty much everything, the Intense Spider 29 should be at the top of your list. Its not the lightest, nor the heaviest, but it handles like a dream.

Super Sick.
I love this bike. Cross country geometry w/ 120mm of travel makes for a quick handling, fun bike. Not great for everything, but nothing is. Very versatile bike. I love it in technical rocks and it's great for high speed flowing single track too. Jumps more like a 26er than a 29er if you know what I mean. Nimble and quick. Been lovin' it.

Awesome Ride
I love this bike! If it wouldn't have been on sale I wouldn't have purchased this frame, I wasn't even looking for a new bike, but when I saw this frame for this special price made in USA I bought it. I was told it was going to be too small for me since I am 5'8", but it is perfect.
This bike climbs amazing, downhills even better, thanks to Mike for having a clearance on this frame and his crew for helping me with the purchase,
At 29 lbs I don't know if that is good or bad for a 29er, but I love this bike.
