    question for Jeff? What is head angle of 2013 T29 in 5.5 travel mode?

    Hi there,

    The Intense website says 70 degrees, but before it was 69 for 5.5 and 70 for 5".

    Has this changed for the 2013 run of this frame? It would be awesome to know, and I'd really appreciate if you or anyone maybe with a new frame could confirm.

    I'd like to know this too, in my case, with a 140 Fox 34's and ann external lower headset cup.

    Also, my shock is currently in the upper position, is that the long travel mode? I can't find anything on the Intense site that says which position is which.

    I emailed Intense (Sam) and got this response which has left me even more confused. I don't know how going from 5'' to 5.5'' can have no impact on head angle or bb height.

    'Changing the travel on the Tracer 29 between the upper and lower holes does not affect the bike’s geometry at all.'

    Changing the travel settings on ANY of our bikes will not affect the geometry at all. The only thing that changes is where the shock sits in the link- not the position of the link itself. This means no change to the geometry of the bike. The headangle remains at approximately 69 degrees, depending on the fork you are using.

    So which is the long travel position, and which is the short?

    Upper hole is long travel.

    HI Sam,

    The website states the head angle is 70 degrees with a 150mm fork. Is this incorrect? Should it say 69 degrees with a 140mm fork?

    I also noticed the TT length states the xl model as being 25.5 but the equivelant in mm is 635mm which equals a TT of exactly 25". Would really appreciate it if this could be cleared up. Thanks

    Mine is 69

    I'm running a Fox 34 140 on my Tracer 29 with the bike in the 5.5 setting and my inclinometer reads with the needle resting on the high edge of 69 degrees with the same tire on both ends.
