    2011 intense uzzi shock length

    Good day guys.i would just like to ask if i can use a rear shock which has an 8.5 i2i length for a 2011 intnse uzzi frame? does replacing the original 8.75 i2i length will affect the overall perofrmance of the frame?thanksp

    I tried it with my Uzzi. It lowered everything and made the seat tube angle even more slack than it is. It might be ok for lift access riding but otherwise it sucked.

    Not a good idea to use a shorter OR longer shock than your bike is meant to use. Any reason behind wanting to do this?

    Doesn't lower the BB.

    Give me the 13.3" BB of the Tracer 275 in a Tracer 2 frame. Plus 65 HA and 74 SA.
