    Ok, hi all, quick question...does anyone know if the new fox shocks with the LV aircan will fit on a tracer 2, instead of the more traditional XV style aircan? I know that the LV has a larger top eyelet section and wondered if this would cause fit issues?

    Shock Update

    Got my Tracer 2 a new shock: CCDB Coil
    Such a great performance! It's a different bike in comparison to the rp23 I rode before.

    Thanks! The pic was taken during last week when we were in Vinschgau, Italy.

    Great place to ride with good weather conditions also in april and a lot of great trails. Some of them are marked and man made others need to be found with a gps which is provided by local bikeshops including different routes.
    There is a gondola which brings biker in the morning and in the evening up the mountain.
    Additionally there are a lot of good shuttle service options.

    most of the bolts on the bike are now gold titanium. got them from some canadian ti bolts seller. just measured them all myself and replaced with the equivalent. the gold shoulder bolts were bought that way from here:

    Yes it's happened to mine I was worried at first. I had a inner tube zip tied from the seat tube to chain stays worked well. But then I just learned to deal with it and accepted the grinding of rocks in thereTracer 2 Builds-imageuploadedbytapatalk1369278239.185911.jpg

    just stuff it with foam and velcro it, as I always do, eversince I had my 5.5, T1, T2, and uzzi. It'll bounce off those small rocks out in those area.

    alright guys, excuse the username! The dune cracked and was replaced with a tracer

    here's mine-



    And my solution for the getting stuff stuck in the vpp



    As i'm in the UK it's more for keeping the gritty mud out rather than stones but has worked quite well so far

    Hi pvflyer,

    before the BOS I had a Fox 36 Talas.
    After riding the fork on local trails, in bike parks and in the Alps for one year I can say that the BOS is performing excellent. Way better than the 36. So smooth on little bumps as well as on the heavy stuff. No matter how fast or hard you go. Plus it's lighter. No technical problems so far.

    Just built up my new T2 frame, still need good pedals (Spank Spikes). Weighs 32.01 lbs. I just put a Rockguardz carbon fiber guard on the down tube (not pictured) but looks pretty good.
