    Oooohhh...

    ...that is trick.

    Questions: any provision for internal dropper post routing, a la Reverb Stealth?

    And, uh, got a carbon one coming by any chance?

    Good to see some focus on the pedal-able big bike segment, nice work!

    Hot, hot, hot!

    Any word on the weight of the frame?

    Is the swingarm retrofit-able to the old Uzzi VP?

    Will there be a CCDBair option?

    Any changes on travel?

    Jeff, you mentioned it is lower and slacker in the vid from Eurobike. Any numbers?


    Cheers!

    exactly my thoughts as well. noodle of a rear triangle is the 1 fault I have with my uzzi vp--even with a 12mm thru axle back there. it's not as bad the 6.6 was but a 7.5 inch travel rig should have a solid rear triangle.

    Love my uzzi...just sayin'

    Hey Jeff,
    Home run once again!

    Excellent news, more pics please!

    Any word on the specs yet?

    Someone posted something about slacker angles, hopefully not too much though. I’d like to see the Uzzi clearly positioned in the AM-Enduro category meaning something like HA66.5-67 w/ 160mm fork & HA65.5-66 w/ 180mm fork with balanced rear travel say 6.5” & 7” --> good in descending and yet ‘pedalable’ as hell. Uzzi doesn’t need to be a DH bike, that’s why they have the SS2, 951 and M9 to choose from.

    I’m also hoping the new Uzzi will loose (some) weight and be closer to rivals such Nomad, Firebird, MojoHD…..

    Just some thoughts for discussion…

    Why not just buy a tracer then? I want a bike I can pedal around and still take to the bike parks.

    Have the Tracer as my trailbike, it's great. 'Basic' trail build w/ 150mm Talas, RP23, 2x10 drivetrain, light components and so on...

    Yep, you're right. One option is to go with second Tracer w/ 160mm fork, coil shock, 1x10mm drivetrain, chainguide, wider bar.... build it for trashing and Enduro racing. But that's a goddam boring idea, and the trade-off is to forget future tuning w/ 180mm forks.. Uzzi, however, sounds like a lot of fun and what I meant in my previous post was that I see the Uzzi as the next step upwards from the Tracer in Intense's 'frame portfolio' and would therefore like to see it's geometry/weight to be in the range of what you'd expect of AM-Enduro frames.. Not going too slack, and all that.. No need to address the DH aspect too much as there are other models for that, right? Have the 951 FRO also, btw..

    Hmm, another fun idea, get the Carbine, build it for trail and 'convert' the existing Tracer for Enduro.. Well, let's wait and see the new Uzzi first..

    New Uzzi has G3 dropouts, so you'll get three head angle settings. I'll bet running it in the steep setting will put it pretty close (if not right on) to 66.5 - 67*, especially with a 160mm fork.

    Does anyone know what the rear axle is on the new Uzzi? Would love a 142x12 setup.

    Interested in hearing more about the finish on this one. Doesn't look like the standard raw finish on my Slopestyle. Ball-burnished maybe?

    Well done! Please make a carbon version soon. I want Intense to be around a long long time. Carbon is the new aluminum. Remember what happened to steel?

    NO asian made plastic bike is worth of the name Uzzi!!

    And yes, I remember what happened to steel. You can still build sick bikes with it if you have not outsourced your manufacturing know-how.

    We will continue to make the new UZZI and all our high end VPP full suspension frames in our Factory in Temecula , Ca. U.S.A. There is just something magical about the sound of CNC machines & tig welders buzzing in our shop, I hope to be able to hear that music for a long time!

    Unfortunately not, as I have adjusted the Geo & suspension a bit on the 2012 as well as the tube set and shock link.

    I don't know how that would be possible while keeping a full length seat tube, but I guess we'll have to wait for a more thorough release! I've been wrong before, a lot actually.

    edit* after looking at the photos on bikeradar it does look like there's a seatstay bridge and the truss on the old rear section is gone, that should be good for additional tire clearance when in the short chainstay position, which is welcome as well.

    My dream for the Uzzi would include a couple of mm's more clearance for chainguides on the driveside link.

    Bingo... fitting chainguides is so much fun on this bike... but well worth it.

    Can you give some more insight on geo, shock options and weight?

    Hey Mr. intense, When do you expect the launch to be, I was just about to purchase a 2011 UZZI frame and now I will wait for the 2012. Just wondering how long of a wait I have. It took months to long to decide on the UZZI but now it will be longer....uggghhh. But worth it I'm sure

    Bonking ... not feelin' well

    Looks like the 2010 I am trying to sell just got overpriced. Thanks Jeff.

    Send a Carbine my way and I'll feel better.

    BTW, the link looks to have only one setting? Is it just me or are the Uzzi/951/SS getting really close to all being the same bikes?

    That said. I had a really hard time parting with the Uzzi. Probably the best bike I have ever ridden.

    Noup, it's not just you... Dunno what you're getting at with this comment, but this is kinda what I'd tried to say in my previous posts in this same thread Uzzi somehow being 'too close' to the upper end of Intense's frame offerings..

    Although i would have to ride one to get it. i like my 2011 uzzi with the 180 van front, 7.5 travel rear setting on the rc4 coil, and the longest wheelbase in the G3 droput setting. the beast is on fire........

    Waiting for a 6.5-7 lb Carbon Uzzi frame with both 135 & 150mm rear end options.... Could be a 29-30lb trail bike or a 33-35 lb DH rig with a Fox 40.

    Don't need carbon for that... my 2011 Uzzi is a 34.5lb DH rig albeit with a Fox 36 180 and no stupid parts. Although, I wouldn't turn a blind eye on a carbon Uzzi...

    Same here. Mine weighs 35lb and it survived more than 12 days at the ski hill with out a hitch.

    Hi Jeff,
    I would like to order the new Uzzi 2012 but how can I buy the right size, since the geometry are not availble yet?
    Thanks and good job!

    I've seen a few uzzis with dual crown forks. Are they designed to handle them? Normally I ride with a totem but would like to put a fox 40 on for dh races and some park riding.
