2008 Intense Pro 24

Bought new in summer of 2008, and started my renewed interest in BMX.

Great bike, but some components definitely need upgrading. Mostly stock, 1st day replaced pedals with sinz pro platform unsealed pedals. Later replaced seatclamp with sinz ano. red slimmer seat clamp and replaced stock c-star v-brakes (short arm length, no leverage/poor braking.) to sinz/tektro v-brake kit. Added sinz expert chain tensioners, ano. red valve caps, home made crossbar pad and T.H.E. # plate. Over the winter I replaced the stock sinz cranks and chain wheel and b.b. with a profile b.b. and profile 41t imperial sprocket and profile 3pc chromoly race cranks. ( what a difference in feel profile cranks make) I got the flame stickers on the bottom tube from a local autozone and applied them to the frame to cover up/camouflage a greasy looking colored mark on the left bottom side, near the bottom bracket of the bottom tube that was under the clear coat from the factory and I couldn't remove the blemish. I think the flames work well, and look factory since the intense headtube emblem has flames as well.

update 5/15/09.  I replaced the cheap stock headset because the plastic top bearing cap cracks! with an FSA orbit MX sealed headset and also replaced the stock sinz boat anchor of a stem (12.5 oz.) with a forged alloy piston style Bullet Proof brand stem (9.5 oz.) from bike parts usa for around $ 20.00.  This combination is awsome and brought my handlebars up and out a bit for more comfort and knee room. Warning stay away from Sinz pro headsets are junk! tried one and they don't work properly and make creaking noises.

Update, summer and fall of 2009 changed seat to a black T.H.E. seat and added dragon decals from autozone to down tube and forks. check out new picks.
