The Tracer was a great bike and one of my all time favorites but at this point I would not recommend buying one. They have been out of production for a few years. That means there is no warranty or or spare parts for them anymore.
Those are not the spare parts I'm refering to. Thats standardized stuff which is pretty easy to find. My biggest concern would be stuff like rocker arms which are virtually impossible to find, swingarms and front triangles. These bikes were very nice and the 03's were much improved and reinforced over earlier ones but the seat towers can break, or the horst link can crack. They were not as robust as the VPP models.Molasses said:I would check with Intense to see if the frame (if it is new) would come with the waranty. I believe it would. As far as spare parts go, I don't believe any parts are hard to find. I have a Tracer and have spare r. derailler hangers, pivot bolts, bearings. I love my Tracer. I think it is a great, great bike. How much do they want for the new frame?
