Intense Recluse

Dan’s Recluse


The Build

Dan was coming off one of the original Intense 27.5 carbon Carbines that had taken him on some amazing rides! It saw regular maintenance but had just been worn down throughout the years. With geometry and component technology seeing such an evolution in the past years it just seemed time to trade up. That brought on the move to this custom 2017 Intense Recluse. Our goal was to build up a killer bike that had the component technology where it mattered most while also using great budget components to control price. All said in done we ended up with an amazing looking bike that is ready to go on some great new rides. Thank you for the opportunity Dan!
