    Thanks for the info, as I have previous mentioned I really want an Intense, but that would be buying with my heart, my head is telling me, Nomad!! - Which is so frustrating!!

    Think of it this way, which one is more likely to leave you wanting the other one?

    Just to muddy the waters, the Tracer is an awesome ride. With some 36s up front, I'd imagine it'll do almost anything (within reason!).

    Crash Bang

    I have built up my Uzzi for trail riding (see blue frame with pink/white components above) and it is 2 lbs lighter than the 03 bullit I had been using with only 0.5inch more travel. I ride Afan regularly and based upon my use of the Uzzi so far (I have not had it down to Afan yet) I would have no problems riding this on whites or doing the whole skyline route. I'm 6'4" and weigh in at about 220 lbs and so I'm running an large. Main thing is that it climbs very well and can certainly handle any kind of decending. I'd go with the Uzzi - any extra weight will just make you fitter

    What fork is that? It looks small. Is it a 36?
    You wouldn't be in so much pain if you didn't ride like a dork!

    How much does it weigh? Curious combination of Mavic 823s and XTR bits

    8.75 x 2.80 (222 mm E2E), and you can chose 135mm or 150mm rear dropouts.

    Very nice build you have there. I am thinking of replacing my small 6.6, for this can you please measure the stand over for me in the middle of the top tube. How tall are you? Thanks.

    I had a Tracer with a Fox Talas 36 RC2 and the RP23. It was a great bike but was more XC oriented. The Uzzi decends much smoother and corners much better.

    The shock is a 8.75" x 2.75" Not 2.8" (that is just what fox uses on their steel springs).

    Hi Pedalhead, nice bike. I am setting it up mine right now. I notice that with CK headsets and stem that is 45mm thick, plus the tube that is already 5 inches, I have to cut my steer tube length more than 8 inches. is that the case with yours?

    Hi, yes I've just measured mine & the minimum (without spacers) you could get away with is about an 8 inch steerer, on a medium frame anyway.

    Only thing I don't like...I have to fold down the rear seats of my car to get the bike in...
