    Yes very rad! I can't wait to hear the difference between the two bikes and which one you like better, climbs better, descends better ect. What fender do you have? I need one

    I've been riding this bike for over a month now and find myself pushing it harder than I have for a really long time. It just encourages you and allows you to carry more momentum. It climbs well. I'd agree with others that its not going to win any XC races but this is a Enduro bike. When you point this bike downhill, you feel like you are on a mini DH bike. The travel is noticeably deeper than the Carbine. The T275 just seems to carve turns with the precision that only a really stiff rear end could give you. This frame does feel stiffer than the Carbine as well. Overall, its a confidence inspiring ride! Im loving it. I'd also agree with others, I think I will be keeping this one around for awhile.

    There is a big difference between the bikes id say the Tracer climbs better but the Mach 6 is much faster DH. The Mach also feel longer and feels a better fit in both mediums. The suspension on the mach works well with the Fox shock and locks out better but.

    The front mud guard is a Mucky Nutz Frender.

    Wow really, I would have figured that the T275 would be better on the dh and the pivot better on the climb...?

    i did a lot of riding during the last couple of days and here are my comments on the bike:
    Its climbing ability is excellent, the bike is very responsive to each pedal stroke and accelerates really well even with the compression damping fully open.
    When the trail points down the bike really shines. Suspension is not super plush but when at speed you just dont feel the impact from the terrain.
    At rock gardens, the bigger wheels are flowing nicely over obstacles and give you some extra confidence.
    Before this bike, I had a nomad 2 and all i can say as conclusion is that tracer feels a lot like the SC nomad but it is a little better in every aspect.
    i have set the air pressure in both fork and shock slightly less than recommended, just to get a Little more small bump sensitivity.

    cleanest dropper cable routing is to use the KS Lev (because the cable attaches at the base) and run the cable through the top tube and straight to seatpost clamp area. that way there is no cable/hose on the downtube to only have a small amount contained for the stealth...

    Hey all

    Very nice bikes indeed. Planning my next build and now I'm on the tires. Can any of you measure the clearance in the triangle, and fork if you have a Pike? The conditions around here (mid Norway) is typical high roller II exo/3c. Wondering if the new 2.4" will fit.

    Thanks in advance.

    Maxxis HR II 27.5x2.4" will clear the Pike as well as the rear triangle no problem, I've ran that quite a bit.

    Size small, nekid carbon, Pike, DB, 1x11. It took few rounds to get it to climb (90% body weight for air pressure seems to be just about perfect). Down - it's fast. Make sure to bed the brakes in before your first ride.

    I rode a 2011 Uzzi last weekend and also own a T275. The Uzzi is awesome on the DH but is beast to climb. The Uzzi had a RS Monarch on the rear and was in the short travel mode so it climbed better but I'd say I would go with the T275. It decends as well as the UZZi and is stiffer/ lighter and more versatile. I owned a Uzzi a couple of years back and it was my one bike to do everything so I climbed on it daily but it was a lot more weight than I want to haul up the hill. It came in at around 31.5 lbs. too so it was built pretty light. My T275 weighs 27.5 lbs. and is stiffer and more efficient and versatile. The T275 does great in the rough/ chunk. There seems to be enough travel to handle the steeps and chunk yet it still climbs great. Still love the Uzzi though.

    I dig the nude frame, especially how well it matches with the graphis on the pike. Kinda how the spider comp looks like the color scheme was pulled right from a fox 34.

    Thinking of selling my 29er and doing an XT build on a Tracer 275 and making a one bike quiver. Would the Tracer be good for local trails and lift served days at Mountaincreek and other bike parks in the Northeast or would I be better off with a full on DH rig?

    I'm an aggressive trail rider and want to start getting into lift served DH as well.

    I ended up selling my DH bike once I built my carbon Tracer 275. Such a capable bike both up and down. Just used it at Intensapalooza at Mammoth mountain and it took everything I could throw at it. Obviously it will not ride like a full on DH bike at the bike park, but it is definitely a "one bike to do it all" style rig

    I would agree with Sam. The T275 does great at lift served DHing. Keep in mind though that a light weight build that works well for climbing and XC/ Trail riding will probably not hold up well fro lift served DHing. Consider having a heavier tire/ wheel setup for the DH days. The frame will handle just fine as long as there arent a lot of rocks that could be kicked up and impact the frame.

    Great thanks! Would it be better to use the CCDB rear shock option if I want it to pull double duty at a bike park or is the fox shock ok? Also I would probably go with a Fox Float 34 160mm up front.

    Are there any 27.5 wheels being made specific for DH right now? When I was looking at DH bikes I considered the Spank Race wheel set.

    I'd be getting the aluminum frame. I read one review that said rear tire clearance is very tight. That could be an issue if I want to set it up with some DH tires. Anyone have issues with that?

    Also, will the XT componentry hold up for DH as well? I would probably get 203mm rotors for the DH specific wheels.

    Any other things I should consider for the build if I go this route? Maybe a bash guard? Are they easy to remove if I'm just hitting some local trails?

    If your getting the aluminum tracer, I would defiantly get the ddcc shock. Also an angle set so you can slacken that thing out. I would stick to the pike or new 36, the 34 felt too wimpy.

    I'm still no the fence about selling my m9 since I got my t275. It's such a capable bike going dh. That being said, I wouldn't be flying down some our nasty dh trails we have a attitash, killington or sunday river. I'm sure I could ride those trails on my t275, it would be more about surviving and not about having fun.
    Once you go slack, you never go back!

    Really? I would be using the t275 for some trips to Killington from time to time. Highland too. I guess there's a point where the t275 will feel overmatched?

    Ugh. The one or two bike quiver is such a tough decision. I think the t275 is so sexy and am really trying to rationalize getting one. But I'm a Long Island flat lander with a decent amount of riding in Westchester, NY which has more elevation but definitely still a XC bias.

    Going to the bike parks is an effort to find more elevation...

    Ugh. The one or two bike quiver is such a tough decision. I think the t275 is so sexy and am really trying to rationalize getting one. But I'm a Long Island flat lander with a decent amount of riding in Westchester, NY which has more elevation but definitely still a XC bias.

    Going to the bike parks is an effort to find more elevation...
    Im with ya on highlands T275 is a funner bike on the jump trails cat scratch, hellion, NEstyle it getting a little big for me on the T275' I like the extra bike for saving my bacon. But Maiden Voyage and Threshold those are big bike trails.

    So let me ask you this. I have not been DH mountain biking at a resort, I'm just an all mtb type trail rider but I want to get into DH. Would the t275 get me down a good deal of the trails at mtn creek, Killington, highland, etc.?

    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.
