There is always space to do something better.

Weight, functionality, design, stiffness – there are plenty of parameters which have to be kept in mind in the beginning of a development. My personal aim are bicycle parts which are better than the usual ones. And additional to this, they are made with fair conditions. Fair prices with fair wages. A good and reliable relationship to all suppliers as well as customers is the basis of every business. 

This is what I stand for – Cornelius Kapfinger

Who is Intend?

Intend is me, Cornelius. Born in 1986 in Regensburg / Germany. I studied in vienna at Technical University, graduated in industrial engineering. My passion are mountainbikes. My job and what I love the most is to develop unique bicycle parts.

Some day I started to make a own fork, from the bottom: valves, rods, stanchions. Some years later I decided to focus totally on this passion.

This is what I do now with Intend Bicycle Components.

What is Intend?

Intend is very small, very very small. All parts were assembled in my flat in Freiburg, that’s all. There is no big factory.

The goal is to concentrate on the essential things and to be able to have the focus on high quality engineering, precise products, and good service. This is what I try to do – every hour, every day. There is no big production line, it’s a small working place. More you don’t need.
