    My new sticker...

    I put it on my T2 late last night, pics aren't great but you get the idea. Its a sticker for a 275 down tube, I cut it into two pieces so my carbon fiber guard wouldn't cover it.

    Nice touch. Where did you get the Tracer 275 decals from? I haven't see T2 or T275 decals online anywhere.

    Just say that you are a test pilot working on a prototype for redline

    Why, you ask because i cant find any REAL T2 decals. Even on the net i cant find any. Sure, perhaps Intense has some but they are not displayed in their store and im not going to pay 50$ for them either. Just so you know the Redline decals look great and are of good quality.

    Naw, mine went on without a problem. Make sure you have the right der, mine is an SLX 3 speed. Set up just fine. If it is an angle problem not an in and out problem you might be out of luck.

    I found out the hard way that new LV aircan will NOT fit! I tried it in both travel settings and it contacts near the bottom of travel.

    I considered shaving the mount slightly but hate having to do that to my painted frame. Have the old RP23 on for the time being.

    Not sure if anyone still rides 26in wheeled bikes anymore, but thought I would post a few updates to my Tracer 2.
    Crank bros handlebar
    some new rims
    Formula oro puros
    XO ten speed drive train in silver
    cbdb air
    Next sl ten speed crank
    Hoping to get it under 30 lbs, but didn't quite make it. Might have to find a cabine frame on ebay or and ibis. I still love this bike though.

    I'm still running 26"

    Made a few changes to mine, now running 10 spd with clutch mech and narrow wide. Biggest change was the frame shock, after the 2nd RP23 failed at the cap threads, Intense UK kindly admitted my frame shouldn't have had that shock fitted and upgraded me with a CCDB f.o.c which was amazing on their behalf.

    Been a while since I have posted here. A few changes. XTR Shadow plus RM. Spank Oozy wheelset replaces the 2010 Crossmax SX with 2012 internals. 2nd freehub failure spoke nipples coming loose, and spoke corrosion. Spank wheels seem ok quality considering they cost half as much as the Crossmax's.

    Now for a Random T2 pic:

    Those green parts are looking mighty spiffy.
    A quick question to any T2 owners with 135x10 dropouts: has anyone had any wheel alignment issues? When I seat my quick release axle all the way down in both dropouts, the wheel doesn't sit straight in the rear triangle. I have to have a space between the axle and one dropout for the wheel to sit right. Just wondering if it's normal, bad dropouts, or a bad triangle.

    You may just have a badly aligned/welded triangle. The rear wheel on my T2 was also a bit out of alignment. Never really affected anything but bugged me nevertheless.

    Is the hub off center or the rim off center? You may need to have the rear wheel dished over so that it is centered.

    Even if the rim was off centered and needed to be dished the wheel should still sit parallel when looking at the bike from the rear.

    In my case the wheel looks slightly angled.

    Well hopefully you got the bike through a good store that will set you up with an RA number so you can send the rear end back to intense and have them check the alignment. I was concerned about a weld on the rear end of mine and I sent it back and they ended up building me a new one. It took a little over two months. So get this done before spring comes. It will cost you shipping is all and time without your bike. Do you have a local shop that can take a look at it for you? Are you a pretty good mechanic in your own right? If you live in northern Colorado I might be able to meet you somewhere and help.

    Thanks. But, unfortunately, I'm in NorCal and got the bike second hand. I'll just have to deal with it. It's not too bad and I can offset one side in the dropout to make the wheel set straight. I just won't be able to upgrade to the 12mm thru axle or to 650b dropouts.

    Ride it till it breaks or until I can afford something else.

    Oh, I also checked with Intense and they said it could cost up to $600 to get a new rear triangle. Not worth it considering I got the frame for only $740.

    Flo yellow and blue

    Hey guys
    Here is mine. size Large
    I bought the frame as an upgrade for my 08 Prophet
    Its built very light now. it has 11kg. 24.2pounds
    It feels fantastic, how agile it is, but for this season i have to sacrifice some weight for better function.
    First thing that will unfortunatelly go is the lefty.
    I love how it looks and rides, but its just 130mm and it makes front end and BB too low.
    New 160 supermax would be kickass, but its too expensive for me right now. i dont know.
    (BTW LEFTY fits large frame perfectly!! No ugly spacers..)
    another change will be rims. these are ZTR olympics. They are holding up very well actually (no truing), but they r very narrow and i have to keep tire pressure too high to avoid burping
    The last change willl be dropper post. Probably thomson.

    cheers
    jan

    Right on @worlkaoz, looks like a fun ride and stoked you get so much singletrack time with it. My T2 has been going strong for 3 years now and still loving it.

    I'm actually taking it with me to Oahu 5 1/2 weeks at the end of the summer season here in colorado, super excited to ride the trails out there
    and I stumbled upon this video, if you read the description the rider is on a tracer 2

    26" is not dead!

    i went through the same with my intense 951....at the end of the day's quest, it was not the frame, it was not the pedals or BB, it was not headset, it was not what you would think.....i took the hub shell of the wheelset (easton havoc dh and greased it and the hub body that it slides into as well as well as where the cassette slides on the shell.....VOILA....creaking gone. it is usually not the frame, but its moving parts when pedalling....so if you have not serviced your rear wheel hub for a while, give that a look....
