    Nice build, I dig that black - I'm positive you will love the way it rides in just about all conditions. Have fun and get it dirty now.

    Update to my Tracer VP: swapped my Rockshox Rev for a Fox Float 34, then added TR Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35" Pacestar tires, F & R. Absolutely fantastic

    Made a few changes - why did I wait 3 years to get a CCDB???? even with the wrong size spring (500lbs rather than 550) giving me almost 50% sag it rode better than the fox ever did.
    Plus the Reverb makes life easy, but it didn't like being cooked in the shed in the recent UK hot weather!! (but my friendly not-so-LBS sorted it when they fitted my DB - few!)



    Pre Leigh Woods/Ashton Court blast, some proper ridding next time to work the shock!

    Added race face 32 tooth narrow-wide and dropped the front derailleur! Here you can see it poking out from underneath the Bash Guide because I couldn't see fit to get rid of that.

    I've long thought about going single ring. After today's ride, I love it! I may look at getting an 11-34 cassette out back, but the narrow-wide ring does its job. No upper guide needed. Combined with the C.Guide down low the ride was as quiet as it's ever been. I kept the C. Guide on because my rear derailleur isn't the clutch-type.

    I've got red elsewhere on the bike but they were out of the red ring when I was ordering. I also got to thinking, "why does my bike need to be based solely around the very much overused black and red palette?" I think it looks great, but I may be biased.

    New (to me) 2010 Tracer VP!

    Just finished getting her built up today, and went on my maiden ride! This is what I'll call an eBay bike. Bought the frame/shock used, then searched and found mostly take-offs and slightly used components to complete the build.

    2010 Intense Tracer VP size small, with Fox RP23 shock
    Fork 2013 Fox Talas 34 CTD 160mm
    Wheels Easton Haven UST. Front 15mm through, Rear 10x135 QR
    Tires Kenda Slant 6 2.35" non UST, running tubeless
    Headset Cane Creek 40 series
    Handle Bar Easton Monkey Lite 690mm
    Stem Thomson Elite 70mm
    Brakes Shimano XT hydraulic disk
    Rotors Shimano SLX 160mm
    Rear Derailleur SRAM XO Type 2 med cage
    Front Derailleur N/A
    Crankset SRAM XX1 32t
    Cassette SRAM XO 11-36 10sp
    Chain KSG 10sp
    Rear Shifter SRAM XO trigger
    Pedals Crank Brothers Mallet 2

    Haven't had a chance to weigh it yet, but I'm thrilled with the build so far. I think I'm going to like the 1x10 set up. It was very quiet, smooth, chain stayed on and had minimal chain slap. I did have to hike a bike but not much more than I've recently had to do on this same ride with my lightweight hardtail. Without even trying, I set my PR on the downhill section of the ride. Awesome!

    I think the first pic is a more accurate depiction of the color...

    Looks great! I hope to upgrade to XX1 or the level below that is coming out soon on mine. 1x seems like a great choice for my area. You will set many new PR's on the downhill sections, trust me.

    Looking good Jeremy!

    If I ever upgrade from my Lyrik, it would be to a Pike or a new Lyrik (lighter like Fox's new 36 - if you're listening SRAM). I've been running a 1 degree angleset to slacken the bike out and I really like how it feels. Can you say how much the addition of that bottom cup slacks out the HA? Looks like you're running a large, so in stock trim I'm estimating the HA was around 68degrees...

    Love my Tracer VP and with the reduced amount of riding I get to do anymore, it's all I need. I imagine someday I may be upgrading to a 275 wheeled bike (might not have a choice), but fork will likely come first. Are you running the 275 fork or the 26?
    You guys wanna ride bikes?

    Coming from 09 36 VanR which has always been overkill for me. A great fork though. Believe the hype this thing is like butter out the box... set up air pressure as per chart on fork and your good to go.

    Mines is 26" 150mm. I just don't think upgrading to 27.5" and carbon frame will give me more fun. As much as i like the look of the BronsonC or Nomad. Mines is XL frame. As for running a few spacers thats just to get the bars a bit higher to my liking.
