    Any 200lb.+ riders on a Tracer VP

    So I am looking at doing away with the one bike for all riding category, as it is just too much of a compromise. The Tracer VP is on the short list of frames to build up in the XC/AM side of riding and I was wondering if there is anyone riding the new Tracer that is 220'ish?
    I will be selling my existing frame that is very stiff and I was wondering how laterally stiff the new Tracer is for the bigger kids.

    I am not 220 but I am 190 in only what God gave me so close to 200 with gear / water. The Tracer is stiff as a board compared to my 6.6.

    Hey Ban'd4life, if you ever get up north to the Boulder area, I'll have a large Tracer VP built up next week for demo. Hit me up if you want to check it out.

    Thanks Dave-

    I think I will have to get up to Lyons to check it out. I'm curious to see how it rides compared to my Ventana.

    I'll check with ya in a week or two- weather permitting.

    Although I am not a rider yet, I'll be rolling a good 210-215 on a TracerVP in a few weeks. Granted, I was a little scared of an air shock so I've spec'd mine with a CCDB. Nothing like coil steel to keep the big men where they belong.

    6'3" 210# without gear on a large for the last month or so. Laterall stiffness way better that previous Intense's. Compared to 6.6 and 5.5 29er, which i have ridden, it is much stiffer.

    Currently on RP23 which is ok but I am more of a coil fan.
