beautiful bike. how do you like the dt swiss fork? is that the 20mm or the new qr15 on there?
Thank You! 20mm. The fork is still a mystery. Its like -5'C to -15'C so riding is minimal right now. And all gets stiff in cold. But what little riding have do, i like it. Its smooth and responsive. Eats small and big. Bobs a little when hammering on the tube, but aint they all ;)

Sticky please!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, there seem to be a ton of Tracers on this board but not many reviews in the review sections. What gives?

I have not yet had a chance to do an actual trail ride but I plan to this weekend. I will post a review once I shred some trails on it. I have done a test ride around the neighborhood and the bike feels awesome. It's very plush yet pedals very well. The geometry feels spot on. I think this will be the ultimate "do everything" bike.
