    They route them on the inside so it is less likely to snag on something.

    routing it on the inside(front hose) is a lot safer because in the event of a bad crash or fall, u don't want to be stuck in the middle of the trail with a busted hydro hose. IMHO. speed safe!

    Incredible ride today on the Exploration Trail up by Running Springs and got a chance to field test the Bionicon C-Guide I just put on. Perfect way to spend a b-day weekend. I honeslty like this bike more and more every time I ride it. AM perfection IMO.

    After two weeks in the Crimean mountains I would agree with that statement. T2 proved to be an excellent bike, uphill and down.

    Angleset in -1 degree is the rule for this frame, IMO

    Actual setup: CCDB, tubeless tires, 50mm stem, Spank Spike flat pedals

    This has goooone already and has been replaced with a nice Yellow Tracer 2. Same build kit, only added a little weight, so should still be a swiss army bike. Came in at 12.68kgs.

    Hey Vern, how do you like the coil? I've heard some that really like it and others say it's not the right match for T2 because of a soft mid stroke. Cool color too, is that a custom "champagne" type color or just the sun hitting a raw making it look different.

    Love it. I'm 250lbs, so if there's anything soft with the mid stroke it's not affecting my riding. Still climbs better than my old cross country bike and soaks up everything I've thrown at it. Color is called gold over raw. Purposely took pics in sun to show what it looks like up close

    Intense used to offer that service..fresh paint and bearings. I called and asked about it a few months back and they gave me the contact info for the paint shop they use in Temecula. I e-mailed them and they were super helpful and very reasonable. I forget their name though. Call Intense.

    After having been riding it for a couple of months, I figured that I ought to put a picture of my 2012 Tracer 2 here. I had an '09 Tracer and the "2" is a great improvement and a great "do it all" bike

    Could you throw up a close up some close ups of the 2X chain guide clearances to the inside of the chainring and to the lower linkage? I just spent a solid day trying to install this guide on a medium T2 and found the metal guide plate was rubbing on the lower linkage. If I rotated the lower guide down and away from the linkage (near the 7 o'clock position) then the pulley wasn't tensioning the chain at all. The plate was installed flush to the ISCG5 mounting surface (no spacers) and I'm running a Race Face Atlas 3x9 crank with just a 34/22 ring combo. Interested to see how you made this fit because mine was a nightmare and never worked out

    Sorry, don't have any pics but I just helped my buddy install a Stinger on his TVP and the clearance is very tight, but we used small spacers on the CG and had to add an extra small one on the BB. It's a pretty tight setup, but it seems to work once you get it right.

    Hi,

    I've just removed my MRP 2X as I couldn't get the correct chain line especially in 22 ring, or any significant chain tension.

    This is probably not what you want to hear but i use Shimano ZEE rear mech with clutch and a Bionicon C-Guide V.02 and MRP bash ring, it works perfectly, NO chainline issues, NO Linkage clearance issues. Just quiet secure chain riding.

    Hey Oldmanrich, I with ya on the Bionicon. I just posted this in the AM Forum about 15 minutes ago..


    BIONICON REVIEW on my 2011 Tracer 2: I got enough trail time in all conditions to form a good opinion on the Bionicon Chaing Guide I've been testing. So far it has exceeded all my expectations for such a simple device. I was drawn to the fact that it weighs practically nothing (less than a seat collar) and drastically reduces annoying chain slap on fast bumpy trails. Simple installation and virtually not detectable chain drag. - works really nice with my 2x9 and feels like it shifts a little more crisp. A little pricey for such a simple part but what isn't on these damn things.
