    Just find someone that does anodizing and send them off. If you get them done, tell the anodizer that they are 7075-T6. The rest of the parts I had done are 6061-T6. That's what it looked like at least from how the anodizing turned out.

    Smile intense tracer 2 build

    hey guys,

    I was wondering weather the Hammerschmidt crankset would work on the Tracer 2 frame. I know the frame has ISG05 tabs but would the crankset still work well the bike.

    Did any of the T2 owners check on tire clearance under full compression? How big is the gap between the seat tube and the tire (2.5 Maxxis or comparable) on a medium T2?

    Thanks!

    Nice! How did the Stinger work out. No fitment issues? I'm looking at putting one on mine.

    One bike to rule them all....

    Just finished building my new tracer this morning. Only managed a roll down the road this morning as i'm moving house today, closer to the trails though so happy days.

    Bikes feels awesome, so smooth, and it looks the nuts!

    This is the bike that i've settled on after an Orange 5, Intense SS, Intense 5.5 and an Intense 951. All great bikes, but this one looks to suit the riding i do most often and cover pretty much all bases. Here's hoping.

    So:
    Large 2011 Tracer in Gunmetal
    Fox RP23BV
    Fox Float 32 RLC 15QR ('09 with 2011 stickers)
    Hope / Mavic 521 wheels
    Maxxis Crossmarks (ATM)
    SLX Rear Mech
    XT Front Mech
    XT Cranks
    XT Cassette
    SRAM Chain
    Diety Decoy Pedals / Crank Bros Mallets
    Thomson X4 70mm stem
    Race Face Atlas FR bars
    Ragley Grips
    SLX Shifters
    Avid Elixir w/203 Hope floating rotors.
    Ritchey WC seat post (pile of crap)
    Charge Spoon Saddle
    Cane Creak HS







    Can't wait to ride it!! Thanks Intense and Southfork Racing. (http://www.southforkracing.com)
    Its All Downhill From Here....!

    @L. Ron Hoover: compliments for the bike, but have you measured the effective angle with Cane Creek angleset with the -0,5 cup? because is zero stack and for have effective 66,5 degrees, for me you have to use the cup -1
    Excuse me for my elementary language...

    For Intense Staff: is it possible that there isn't yet a "shock setup guide" and a "rebuild guide" with torque infos??

    I haven't measured it, I'm just going by the specs. It may indeed be that my head angle is 67 and not 66.5. I'll try to mesure it to see.

    And your English is fine!

    New Tracer 2

    Here is mine. I only have one ride on it so far and think I still have some work to do to dial in the suspension. So far it rides well and like a 6 in bike. The steering is a little slow but maybe a shorter stem will help. Anyways it is great looking and is a great descender for sure. Mine weighs about 32lbs, but I could run some lighter wheels, just need to break these ones first.

    Anyone Knows if T2 is made with Easton aluminium tubesets?. The frames doesn´t appear any Easton stick, and not on donwtube with headset, like T1.

    Correct me if I am wrong. I came from Rocky mountain bike, they too no longer use Easton tube. From what I know many bike manufactures are going for the hydroformed tubing than Easton tube. Its a cheaper cost technology in tubing design because the Easton tapered tubes are patent stuff. Performance wise not sure but you will not get a nice straight tapered down tubes. Instead u get a bloated 'S' shape down tube. TheS shape down tube might post disadvantage, will tends to get hit by rocks & stone as compare with straight one if clearance not good enough.
    But what I see is an Art Intense has made. A combine monochrome *** hydroform tube. Hope price is kept low.
