    I've already put a deposit down last week at my local dealer I was trying to decide between the Tracer or the Uzzi, but my decision has been made.

    Mr Intense, are the silver links and drop out going to be an option? or just a pre-production item.

    Those links are just raw machined finish , most likely stock production will be the black ano & maybe we will do a special edition with the Electroless Nickel links.

    HB,effective TT on XL will be 25" , the WB w/ 160 fork in the short drop out setting would be in the 46.5" range and increase @ 1/4" increments in middle & long settings & of coarse WB will grow with longer forks.I will have a full geometry chart soon as the adjustability of this frame allows many combinations of HA, BB, WB/CS.
    The BB has a machined in ISCG 05 mount so mates up perfectly with the HS.

    Jeff, What build kits will be available for the New Uzzi?- From Intense. What kind of wheel sets would your DH/FR kits have? The Uzzi is looking very good. Thanks.

    Please do a special edition in red. That color looks so great, I have seen one of Your prototypes with red links and dropouts.

    Weirdest thing is, the intense red / yellow graphics on the tires have changed to Blue, which is exactly what happened when fiddling with different colours in photoshop changing the colour balance - (when i wanted to see what works blue would look like when all i had was a pic of a works red......?)

    With all due respect, is this GENUINELY a photo of a works blue Uzzi? And if so, where can i get those intense tires with blue graphics? They look cool!!

    The tires are some prototype 2.35's with dual compound and a new lighter casing .

    Ahhhh-nice. And theres me getting all suspicious!!! Thanks for the feedback!

    Are they going to production at all? (With the cool blue graphics?)

    I love the look of this bike so much, i think you've nailed the look of the '08/'09 range, and i think this Uzzi might just be the next bike for me. I currently ride an '08 SS and have started to do more and more trail / DH riding, and am thinking the extra travel would be great. What are main differences/benefits over the SS (Besides new better VPP)?

    Huge thanks for the feedback. J

    when i'm looking at that bike I'm seeing a strong, very capable frame on xc parts. seems like jeff made a mistake of grabbing the Uzzi frame when he meant to really reach for the Tracer.

    what's with the seat post? i thought this frame can take a seat post slammed all the way down.

    I predict the new bike will be called "Uzzi"

    Do I win a free one?
