I almost fell out of my chair when I came across these today. This is a new budget bike line from Intense brand. Read about it here:https://www.pinkbike.com/news/int...ikers.html
As a veteran mountain biker I ride $6,000 bikes, and own too many. I've never seen a legit brand of bike with specs like this sold at a big box store --until now. Components are SRAM Eagle and Fox suspension, with full carbon frames. You can get service parts directly from Intense. These are not your typical Chinese down-spec'd bikes. I would recommend these to anyone that is _seriously_ interested in getting into mountain biking on a budget. These bikes look like maximum value for a reliable, serviceable, upgradeable bike with gearing and spec's to shake a stick at. Weights are quite reasonable, these are not lead anvils by any means! These are real bikes. In stock and ships free.
You can probably sell these on craigslist for as much or more given the supply shortage. I am tempted to fill my garage with them.

Sweeten the deal with a 50$off 500$ coupon code (search the forums), and 2% cash back executive membership.
I mean really, wtf more can you ask for at this price point with Costco backing the purchase?
