Coming from a DH and Motocross background and racing during the days of NORBA DH Nationals I was a little hesitant moving forward with this "new technology" 27.5 tire size?? HUH??? I read all the reviews and coming from an older Intense 5.5 26er I really was very skeptical. I figured it would take a long time getting use to the geometry and feel of a 27.5 after riding a buddies 29er that I was completely turned off by. I picked up the new INTENSE Tracer 275 and first ride out PRíd almost my whole ride. I couldnít believe how amazing this bike was. Geometry was identical to my 5.5 26er, Bottom Bracket height and handle bar height was exactly same and felt like I was on my 26er until I pointed it down the hill. This thing is a missile! I was so confident after the first ride I took her up to the new BIG BEAR MTB park the following week. Big Bear had been closed for over 10 years since the last national I raced and I didnít know what to expect. AMAZING.. this bike railed those tight banked turns and just flew over everything. I felt like I was 10 years younger flying down those trails. Success is when you demand more of yourself than anyone can expect. Intense built this bike beyond what most expect and feel this is one of the best bikes out there today across the industry! AMAZING.
