    Special Edition Tracer VP

    Many of you and many consumers have commented on the colors available on the Tracer VP. The CRC team blue has been one of the most sought after colors. We have decided to produce a limited batch of Special Edition Tracers. The frames will be CRC Blue with Nickel plated links and bolts. It will be offered as a complete XTR bike with a white Fox Talas 150 RLC fork with tapered 1.5-1 and 1/18 steerer, white DT SWiss wheelset, white grips and saddle. Complete weight minus pedals is 26.4 lbs in a medium. MSRP is $5999. We are planning on making 50. Make sure you get an order in if you want one. Late Decemeber delivery.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Is this just for the US? Also can you explain the nickel linkage and bolts, what's the difference between stock?

    I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

    Yes, the links , shoulder bolts & pivot pins are all Electroless Nickel or "EN" plated.
    The EN plating process uses no electrical current and offers very even coating and high corrosion resistance.
    I will work on getting some better pics of EN plated links as they are beautiful and have a almost Pewter look to them.

    Std Qr

    we were origianlly planning on the XTR wheelset which is only available as a QR so that is the fork we spec'ed. After seeing the white DT wheels, we had to go with them.

    my original plan was a works red with more of a freeride build... but the blue is too sexy...
    will it be available as a frame only?
    Do we order from Intense directly or thru a dealer?
    any plans for shock options.. like CCDB?
    thanks!

    edit: just wanted to say, that even though I was asking for a frame only... this special edition build is probably the best looking bike i've ever seen.

    I gotta say that you guys making this a limited prod color partly because of the comments you've recieved from riders (possibly primarily on mtbr regarding this thread: works blue ?) is frickin awesome. Possibly the best example of giving the customer what he wants, and direct customer/company interaction (although still keeping support through the LBS; man you guys can't stop!).

    I mean seriously, I've never heard of another company in any industry doing anything like this. You guys rock! And dope bike too, although I think the xtr wheels (albeit they're not white) would be sweeter, but I bet it would bump the price tag mmmm, 6 grand....

    I'm interested in to get a frame only with CCDB too.
    will it be possible?

    You are kidding, right? You are letting the color of the rims dictate that you spec a 9mm QR?!

    There are lots of white wheels out there. Lots and lots and lots. It has been the trend for 2 years now.

    There is NO WAY I would ever spec a 9mm QR on a 150mm travel bike.

    I think he means the original full XTR kit caused them to pre-order a bunch of QR forks which they are essentially stuck with. The wheelset change was just for color but they had to keep the QR because they had the forks? I don't know any of this just guessing based on his first reply.

    I agree thought you can keep a QR wheel on a bike like this. No thanks.

    I guess my son can start his first year of college at the local community school, instead of a private university
    I could just sell his Socom to pay for it...

    XTR wheels

    Good choice on the wheels. Keep The XTR wheels on XC race bikes. We trail riders need an all mountain wheel. and a XTR wheel just doesn't sound to up to the task for burly rock gardens and flying, and dropping off things like we like.
