    Thanks bro, I'm really lovin the new geo. No, there's no clearance issues at all. The original coil size is 8.75 x 2.75, so I just took off a quarter inch from the eye to eye and stroke. The end of travel is exactly the same position for the two shocks.

    A few changes... ti spring for the DHX RC4, dumped the Straitline Amp pedals (garbage) and replaced with plastic Nukeproof Electrons, Blackspire bar, Selle Italia SLR XC saddle, Thomson seatpost, Mavic Deemax wheels.

    Did you get the shock custom valved for the Uzzi? I´m thinking of getting myself the RC4 also. I´m wondering will it work properly straight out of the box.

    No custom valving... the RC4 seems to have enough adjustment to feel right for my riding style. I may have it tweaked when I send it in for servicing but at the moment I am happy with the peformance. The bike really stays glued to the ground when I want it to, and still has enough pop for jumps.

    Having just finished polishing my T2 I know the work that goes into it - nice job. Put a rub on type of sealant on it occasionally and it will keep the polish for a pretty long time with little maintenance. I polished my TVP almost a year ago and it still looks really good with just regular cleaning.

    Thanks for the props guys.

    @Zuzi, I am running a 65° head angle. I'm liking it so far but I haven't had a chance to take it on any steep stuff yet, just some single track. I was planning on ridin some DH trails this weekend but it's been raining here for two days. Damn the rain I'm itchin to ride!

    Couldn't wait any longer and had to share my Uzzi build in progress(hoping to have it completed this Sunday finally!):



    I pulled the Lyrik from my Tracer for now and it will probably be great for local trail rides, but I am debating on a 180mm for more fun/chunky days. I'm currently thinking either a Marz 66 RC3 Ti or a Rockshox Totem Coil.

    Had planned to install an old set of Elixir CR's on it that I already had, but decided to go with something new and these babies came yesterday:


    I will get more pics up as soon as it's complete

    You will definitely appreciate a 180mm fork on the Uzzi... nice choice of brakes as well. I have the M4s on my Uzzi and they are great.

    What about for mostly trail/ all mountain riding, you think a 180 is ideal for the 2012 uzzi? I have a lyrik 165 currently on my 6.6 but want to get a new uzzi.
