It has been a long time coming but with the arrival of a new Tracer 275 it is time to retire my old faithful 1999 Uzzi SL.
After two good rides this past weekend it amazes me how much faster the new technology is - both up and down the hill. With the bigger wheels and wider bars it did feel like holding on to a bull descending the whoop sections.
Tracer is pretty standard kit with XT build and reverb stealth but gives me something to tinker with over the next few years. For anyone out there considering upgrading from a retro steed, if you have the means, go for it. I couldn't be happier.
It is a lot cheaper mid-life crisis than one with a Porsche in it.
