Bike Brand Partners

Honed by a legend of MTB Jeff Steber Intense Cycles grew from a small workshop in Temecula, California and still now resides on the sunny west coast of America. Having developed some of the most influential race bikes of all time, namely the M1, Intense Cycles have delivered riders legendary bikes in their long history.

Making a move to develop carbon bikes in recent years the Intense Cycles range covers everything from super fast, lightweight XC race bikes to full on cutting edge downhill bikes.

For the team at +3 working with Intense in the UK means we can offer customers an unique experience to setup and learn about their dream bike. Working on the JS Tuned suspension platform that is utilised across the whole range we understand how to maximise it’s performance and make sure that each rider attending a +3 event will leave with their bike dialled and riding improving.

With roots in aerospace testing, love of riding and a passion for building things Joe McEwan decided it was time he built himself a bike. A week long course with Dave Yates gave him the brazing skills he needed and with tubing in hand it was down to his shed and the beginning of Starling Cycles.

Named after the birds that roost in the tree above the shed Joe has built a name for Starling Cycles that has resulted in his bikes winning awards, praise from the MTB media and the freedom to build whatever bikes he and his customers want to ride.

Joe now has 6 bikes in his range including the much coveted Murmur 29 and his latest creation the Sturn, single speed downhill bike. Starling customers can buy a coaching and setup event place when ordering their bike, making sure their dream in steel is setup to perfection and their skills are tuned too.
