That looks really good! :thumbsup:
Maybe it is the pic, but the BB looks rather high. Do you have an actual measurement?
Mostly due to the pic, but it's right at 14" in long travel mode and big tires. This bike is freaking fun.

I really like it, easiest guide to setup that I've ever used. Should've ran one on my M9. No crank mods needed, just remove the inner ring and use the 2.5 mm spacers provided with the guide.

How do you like the straightline silent guide? I bought one and plan to put it on the tracer 2 as well. Did you need to modify the cranks at all?

How long did it take to receive your frame? I just placed my order last night at Jensons. Yeah, I know, there is a long pre-order list. I should've pulled the trigger a long time ago. :madman: Oh, well.

@ichabod-can you post a ride comparison vs. heckler (that's what I'm on now ant trying to decide between uzzi/tracer/sx trail). thanks!
The best way to describe it is like the heckler but with vpp, the heckler never had very good small bump performance and was just awful with a float shock but the tracer is super plush across the small bumps and even with the float feels bottomless on drops. I loved the riding feel of the heckler and wanted to get something as close to it as possible and it seems I have succeeded in doing so! Like I said it really is a super charged version :)

Mine arrived around March the 10th and I pre-ordered in January it was one of the first frames in the UK. So really the actual wait time was just for Intense to build the frames which was only a few weeks.

1 degree slacker or steeper on your angleset? (Can't tell if -1 is neg one or hyphen one)

How'd you end up deciding on 160 Talas instead of 180? (or maybe the thought never came up?)

P.S. Those pedals are hot!

It is 1 degree slacker, giving a HA of 66 degrees and and a BB height of about 14 1/8th in the long travel position.

Oh and the frame behind is a battered up Santa Cruz Heckler, we both upgraded to the Tracer 2 :thumbsup:

The Tracer2 had it's first outing this weekend in the Scottish Highlands. :D

Verdict: Descending is just amazingly quick and lively. I demo'd a Rocky Mountain Slayer Carbon back to back with the Tracer2 on a rocky/rooty/loose section. The Tracer2 was MUCH more fun. :D

. With the 66degree HA it is like a mini DH weapon! For the climbs I ran the fork down to 120mm which worked ok. I was running 2.4" tyres so I was never going to be that quick. :p

@zhengki The right leg controls of the 36 clears the frame with about 2mm spare. The left leg with a few mm more.

@P-townDave. 180mm forks apart from being too big for the bike are more than I need for the intended riding of the Bike.
