    My 2010 Uzzi VP built to replace both DH and enduro bike. It's 2-in-1, so there are two setups for both types of riding:

    Sub 30lb Enduro Uzzi

    This year I've been working on getting it down as light as possible for Euro enduros. This is how she's ended up.

    And reached my goal of sub 30lbs. In this set up it's 29.7lbs.

    Gretch that`s beauty and the beast rolled into one machine....

    Right, fellas, I`m finally going to take the 180 Dorado off my Large Uzzi and put a new Float 160 on it, thereby dropping

    1 . 6 K I L O G R A M S

    off the weight of my darlin`. . .

    If anyone has a pic of a large Uzzi VP with a fox160, please post it!

    OUCH! davet I had a set of i9s - the rear got destroyed by a GreatDane-sized stick. I still have`t got it rebuilt.... The spinergys I`m on now are great though, though not light.... I figure dropping 3.5 lbs off the front end should change the handling a bit !

    Any reason you're not going for the float 180? Easy to use spacers to set at the height you want and not a lot heavier.

    Coincidentally Drop I just got home from the LBS here in Tokyo. With the strong yen the 2012 Fox forks are about 20% cheaper than last year - a very pleasant suprise. They had the 180 in stock and I was surprised at 2 things: it is in fact only negligibly more expensive AND its only 300g heavier. I had gotten some bad info/misread something somewhere and thought the 180 was 2.9 kg; in fact it`s only 2.35. The 160 is 2.04 or something.... So to answer your question - I don`t know. 180 or 160 ? I thought there was a big weight difference. But as I`m thinking of going with the short positions on the G3 and rear travel, I thought the 160 made sense. More of an AM build. Now I`m confused, need to do more research.

    Any opinion Dropadrop? Anyone else? (Probably this has been discussed to death on other threads; I`ll start searching....)

    jstuhlman how about you? Why did you go for the 160 and not the 180 ?

    When I modded my Lyrik from solo air to coil I expected the added weight would be bad, but actually I only feel it while picking the bike up, not while riding. I would imagine either fork will feel light compared to your current one?

    The 160 will feel good in the steepest G3 setting, but might cause problems if you go slacker. The 180 can me shortened to 160 if you want or kept at full length...

    I know which one I'd choose, but I don't ride the same trails etc so it's hard to say what you should go for...

    My fork was transferred over from my heckler . . . I've felt it to be quite well matched to the frame for my needs. I use it mostly for tooling around local trails, taking some small drops, etc., so I tend to keep the rear dropouts in the shortest position or else the steering slows down noticeably.

    The handful of times I've had it up in the mtns. on some steeps and more rugged terrain I put it in a slacker setting and felt that the fork was still able to keep up really well. I really didn't feel like it needed more suspension--the geometry of the bike was the bigger factor. So I'd consider a.) what type of terrain you'll be on most of the time and b.) what the axle to crown measurements are of each fork you're considering, as this will affect your geometry and thus the quickness of the steering and the feel of the ride.

    Just my uninformed 2 cents . . . I'm sure that a 180 would rock, esp. if you could dial it down to 140 if need be . . . but I've been happy enough with the 160 not to lust after a 180 quite yet . . .

    You would have better luck either using the search function, or starting a dedicated thread for the question. This is about Uzzi VP's which is quite a different bike to what the Uzzi SL was.

    I just picked this rig up a few months ago and enjoyed Northstar for the first time in over seven years. I'm considering picking up a second fork for local trail riding. A 160mm Lyrik U-Turn has been offered to me. I'm looking for feedback on the fork and whether it's worth picking up or simply sticking with the Totem Air.
