    Nice build!!!
    I would really like to know your thoughts about how the T275 compares to the Mojo HDR. Give us a ride report when you have some time on the T275.

    I also went from and HD to the alloy version of the 275 cause i was excited the frame was still built here. That and I kind of wanted a vp style bike again like my vp free. Gonna do mt wilson tomorrow see how it holds up!

    Think it would be a good idea to ride that bike on my local trails and the bike parks for a couple of years as my DH skills increase or just get a dedicated DH rig. Reality is I'll only be hitting the bike parks a few times a year.
    I have a bunch of friends that have nomads(their only bike), and have passes at highlands. Their bikes or the T275 is a funner bike for the most part on the flow jump trail than a full on dh bike. That seems where most bike parks are heading, smooth and flowy. I have gone to killington and Sunday river with them and when trails got steep and deep, their fun turned into full survival mode, and they quickly became tired and scared.

    You defiantly want a burly wheel set and wheels if your hitting up a park once or twice a month and be prepared to have premature wear on your bike, bearing, bushing, brakes, ect. Also know if you want to progress in your riding you and your bike are going to at some point take some hits. I know these things are made to take a whack or two but the chances of throwing it down in a big pile of slimy rocks when all your doing is bombing dh laps goes up. You kind of give into that with your dh bike and you know thats what they are made for.

    If your want a barely use M9, pm me

    Very nice! Please give us a report on the wheels. I have been rocking some Derbys for a few months and love them. I'm going to build an other set, but I'm considering some 741s.

    Curious to hear ur feedback. I had a mojo and really like the suspension but not the flexy nature of the frame. I am a heavy rider.

    Very nice ride by the way.

    This is the end result of 3 months or so of obsessing over every little bit and piece on this thing. I'm loving this bike.

    Wow, that's a light build! Curious where did you save all the weight from what's your build up parts list?

    Here's the stuff that's changed from the Pro build I started with:
    Shimano XTR Trail brakes
    Shimano RT99 180mm Freeza front centerlock rotor
    Shimano RT99 160mm Freeza rear rotor outer disc riveted to 6-bolt RT86 spider
    Race Face Next 35 760mm bars
    Race Face Atlas 35 50mm stem
    Light-Bicycle AM 35mm wide carbon rims, 28f/32r
    Sapim CX-Ray straight-pull spokes
    DT 350 straight-pull centerlock front hub
    Roval/DT 142+ rear hub w/ 36t ratchet, drive-side spacer machined to give 143.2mm total hub width and 0.025 clearance between chain and frame when in the 10t cog
    Sram X0 carbon crank
    Absolute Black narrow-wide spiderless ring
    Xpedo MF-8 Ti/Ti pedals
    WTB Volt Ti saddle
    Maxxis Ikon 2.35 rear and Ardent 2.4 front
    Woodman TC seatpost clamp
    Titanium bolts just about everywhere
    And a handful of other little stuff that adds up

    Fun stuff!

    Nice I ordered the Pro build Large frame. But i'm getting it shipped with the Fox rear shock, I plan to upgrade that to the Cane Creek DB Air Inline. I have a set of 31mm wide Carbon rims laced to DT Swiss 350 hubs and am going to swap out the Renthal light to the Carbon Light. Go tubeless. Are the tires you used light. I figure tires can add a lot of weight but yours are pretty large at 2.35 & 2.4?

    Ha! That's awesome. What do I win?!? Seriously, this bike really kicks ass. I love it. Pretty fast going up, and absolutely stupid-fast coming down.

    I'd be curious to ride with the CCDBIL as well, though I'm not $500 curious.

    Yes, these tires are lighter than the stock HR ii's. The HR's are really grippy though. HR ii weigh 895g each (advertised weight). My Ardent 2.4 is 765g measured and my Ikon 2.35 is 735g measured. The Ikon is really fast rolling, and I think it makes for an excellent rear tire. I suspect a Schwalbe Rock Razor would be similar. The Ikon made a really big difference in speed on the bike for flats and climbs on the trail. I'm a tad disappointed in the grip of the Ardent up front compared to the HR so far. It rolls faster and is lighter though. It's also a bit rounder, and might be better on the wide rims (the HR is a bit more square-ish). I will likely try a Specialized Butcher Control up front sometime down the road.

    I just demoed the Tracer yesterday to see how the bike would perform. Man this bike ripps! I managed to throw down 25 miles on my local trails at El Morro in SoCal. This bike is so fast down that I PR'd several trails without even trying! I just floats down chunder and builds speed so quickly! I was blown away! I demoed a large Pro build and it weighed 29lbs with pedals. Which is much better than the 33+lbs of my current Enduro SL. But I hope with carbon wheels, different tires, carbon bar and DB inline I will get the figure down to 27 or so pounds. Because we have such steep climbs in El Morro I'm also go into put a Race Face 28 tooth front sprocket and maybe ride the bike in the 145mm rear setting. Then when I go to Mammoth I can adjust to the 160mm setting.

    I currently use Specialized Butcher Control up front and Pugatory Control back for tires on my Enduro. They seem to work very well don't weigh too much so they may be a good option on the Tracer.

    Are there any stickers on these bikes or are the different colours/patterns all paint? I've not had the opportunity to see one in person, apologies if its a silly question.

    Dropper routing on your tracer 275c

    I routed my KS LEV dropper through the front deraueller cable hole in the frame. NO EXTERNAL CABLES - very clean looking and easy to wipe bike down.

    What rear tire is that, is it a spec?

    Nice detail there with the Lev! I like!! I'm going to do the same thing on my new Spider Comp. I wish the internal routing on these Intense carbon bikes was a little cleaner and in the DT and ST. Let's see the rest of your T275.
