    Cheers bud, i'll be on a pound hunting mission now! Probable cause of the portly weight is the 05 boxxers

    Is the Boxxer coil or air? I don't think there is more than a pound in there compared to a 10 or newer Boxxer.

    BTW: just checked my notes and a medium works Socom w/o shock, shock bolts, rear axle and seatpost clamp should be around 3250 g from the factory.

    It's coil sprung - pre hydra-coil so it's old... and beat. There's nothing else carrying much weight, an 1800g wheel set, 2.3Swampthings at the moment, XTR cranks, no chain guide, 1x9 SLX, Saint brakes, ti spring and decent enough finishing kit. Just double checked the weight; 37lbs. I'll have a closer look at the specs of some of those <36lb Uzzis and see what they've done differently.

    The fork you know, tubes could be heavy too, SLX cassette, Saint breaks are not the lightest, maybe they run lighter tires? It all adds up, probably not a single super heavy item in there but also nothing crazy optimized. 37 is not bad at all for a Socom. But you might be able to find 1-2 pounds without going too crazy and expensive.

    yeah, I'd be looking at the tubes first.

    My Uzzi is in the 34's with a Dorado and nothing really weight weenie.

    IMHO Uzzi is a slack bike even with stock 8.75" shock, so putting on a shorter unit seems a bad idea for me. If you are super-aggresive rider, often on gnarly DH tracks, maybe you could risk and try, but other than that, I'd stick with stock lenght.

    I'm unsure what year Uzzi he has, but the 2012s use 8.5" for both air and coil.

    Updated with a new 888 RC3 EVO Ti, Answer Protaper780 DH bars, and Easton Havoc direct mount stem. No dirt yet but it soaks up curbs nicely

    Sorry for the crappy phone pics:

    First time out on the uzzi for a while, spent the whole day ripping at the FOD

    Seeing a lot of UZZIs on here with DC forks whats the consensus is a DC generally better than a 180mm SC??

    I would imagine the general consensus is still that a SC fork is a better fit, but I imagine some people just prefer a DC, had one ready or found a great deal...

    Nah not got anything in mind at the moment looking for a coil conversion for the ATA but doesnt look like they are avaialble. Just looking at the cost of a new fork most of the mini DH type SC forks are roughly the same price as a DC!

    Uzzi VP photo album

    And this is trail mode. Only real difference is the wheel set. Mavic 823 ust laced to king hubs, with tubeless muddy Mary's.

    Since this photo I changed the headset from devolution to a king inset. Oh, and a different handlebar.

    Question about the (2011) Uzzi. Can a 150 rear be converted to 135 or 142 by just changing the rear dropouts?

    Uzzi VP photo album-uzzi-1x9.jpg
    For everyone. I decided my self for Truvativ XO chainguide. Fitment of guide is excelent. I added 3 washers under guide and with my 135 rear axle and 32tooths front and 11-36 cassette rear is just perfect for anything lads! And Im not any light and fast rabbit
    So I can recommended this set-up.

    How does the db feel on your uzzi? does changing the travel options make you have to retune the shock?

    Can I just reconfirm...
    The shock linkage holes: Upper Hole for Longer Travel, Lower Hole for Shorter Travel?
    Am I right? On the older and newer Uzzi its the same logic? Infact should be the same for all adjustable travel frames of Intense?
