    i'm not sure it's good or bad.....although it is thinking outside box...so good on Bambax for that.

    curious as to why you think it's a non-good idea?

    Think you need an e-type mech and this clamp to run a triple
    Triple ring set up on Uzzi VP?

    Not sure if it compensates for the seat tube angle which is a bit steep as it comes from the BB shell, I currently have an M660 fitted but it is no good when the chain is in the granny. I have seen a few bikes on here that are fitted with the M770 this has a longer cage than the M660 so I pressume it compensates for the seat tube angle. Or if you arent going to run a chain device fit an e-type this is the only thing im still not happy about with my build. Maybe someone else can comment.

    liteville 301 uses a swingarm mounted roller and although the suspension design is different(less movement) , the company has come out with a few cool ideas.

    if one speaks german they are likely saying why they mounted the roller on the swingarm.

    Lots of chain pull. Better make sure th chain is long enough. It looks like it would work though.

    I know there isnt much chain pull from the suspension design. Im saying as the suspension moves the roller is going to pivot up and pull the chain and in turn shorten the chain. Does the roller pivot parallel to the bashgaurd in an arch? Or does it pull away from the bash?


    I take back what I said. It looks to be a GREAT idea... if it works. I wonder if it would work on a 951. That would make a super light guide.

    What did you use? Any pics of the install or the making of the part you bolted on?

    Liteville uses sealed roller on the swingarm because of the available space. A bush bearing with an additional sealing is too wide. Leaving the sealing doesn´t fit with the durability requirements at Liteville.

    Only the lever in the upper tube has a bush bearing because the superior friction should reduce the influence from pedaling forces on the suspension. The response characteristics is nearly not affected. In the upper tube sealings are used.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Sorry for all the questions

    Hang on
    Can't compare because my 6.6 before is medium size. Basically at now my small uzzi to short for me,

    Sweet looking ride! Is that a large or extra large frame?

    Cheers, the frame is a large, i remeber Jeff mentioning an XL would be produced if there was enough interest but havent seen any about.

    Im 6' 3" and am pretty happy with the L frame have change to a set of 36's on the front really changes the handling.

    Will have to post some action shots

    hi.
    could you tell me the shock length of the rear shock of the uzzi cause I want to replace the original fox dhx 4. I ordered some minutes ago an uzzi and it takes 2 weeks until it arrives, meanwhile i want to buy an air shock too, cause I want to switch it when i need it more for all mountain use, for freeride use I would grab than the coil.

    anyone tried the cane creek double barrel on the uzzi??
    better than the foxes??

    cheers

    so, why didn´t you order the uzzi with the custom tuned dhx air plus the dhx 4 coil?
    i ordered mine with the custom dhx air because of the intended am use.

    I'd be curious to know how that works too. I've ridden an Evolver equipped bike briefly and it seemed to have an extremely solid pedaling platform. The bike was set up for someone that weighed 50lbs less and it barely sagged and didn't bob while still feeling very good on bumps. Since the VPP design relies on sag to get the suspension in the sweet spot for pedaling, this type of shock may actually work against it.

    Cool-blue Rhythm using TALAS 36

    Finally I finish building up my UZZI, I could not get a new fork so I am using a old sherman which is heavy, I also have a TALAS 36 but is 6". It's worth in changing the fork or stay with the Sherman until I can get a TOTEM? there is anyone running a TALAS?

    The stealth black Apparently is anodized.
    It's true that it is not clear on the intense site.

    I asked my local Intense dealer if the black stealth was anodized cause it looks like it is on the Intense web site and they said it was powder coated. I didnt totally believe them so
    I emailed intense about the ano paint in August '09 and this is what they said,

    "At this time we are going to stick with powdercoating our frames. We have not ruled out the possibility of bringing anodizing back as an option....I just don't know when and if it will happen. Thank you for your email. BTW, the Uzzi VP is a great bike....thank you for your interest."

    Unless something has changed since August the paint is powder coat

    We use 4043 filler rod on our frames since switching to EA6X tubing.
    If you anodize 4043 it turns black meaning all the welds would turn black.
    Stealth Black is a powdercoat.

    RTW, Thanks for the explanation. I would prefer an anodized paint since I have had good experiences with it being durable. Do you have any thoughts on the toughness of the paint thats used on the Uzzi VP bikes? This won't effect me buying the Uzzi VP but a little insight would be good. Also, I understand it's a mountain bike and its gonna get scratched and beat up but it is a big investment that I want to look good for as long as possible. Thanks

    I knew there was an issue with anodizing but I didn't know what it was. Thanks for the explanation.

    You're welcome.
    Believe me I know its a big investment, that being said, I prefer the works.
    It shows our craftmanship, with no excuses.
    The first post on this thread is Marshalls, check it out, like I said, it looks like a weapon.
    My 951 is a works, could'nt bring myself to paint those welds.........

    Raw AL. reacts with oxygen, oxidation. Every time you scratch it, it chemically starts to repair itself.
    Paint in any form does'nt inhibit it. Does it slow it down ? nothing has been proven it does, or does'nt.
    I think it is an individual preference, how do you roll ?
    If I was to paint my 951, I would go with the Stealth, or the Signal Blue.
    The Pimping would be done with the components.

    RTW.

    I am debating between the Stealth Black and the Copper. The copper is such a unique color it will definitely turn heads. Plus I already have a black and red bike in the stable. I figure either way I go I know I will be stoked.

    My bike

    Took her out for her shake down ride today on the shore. Coming off a large 08 nomad I was looking for a little more travel and shorter chain stays. Also have a 5" bike with a talas 36, so looking for a little more gap in travel between my 2 bikes. Swapped all the parts off the nomad. Added a Thompson masterpiece to replace the elite post off the SC. The medium uzzi is about 1 pound heavier. Set up in the short travel mode with short chain stays. Coming off the nomad I have a few observations. I noticed flex in the rear a couple of times where I never really felt in the SC. With the shorter C.S. the uzzi felt a little more nimble and seemed easier to get the front end up than the S.C. Cant compare the climb up as just pushed up today. All in all, pretty much what I expected. One nomad for sale. Build parts, totem solo, juicy 7 with straitlines, Hadley 823, gravity lite cranks, sunline v1 low rise, Thompson x4 45mm, vsixty mag pedals. Thanks to Davet for letting me take his uzzi for a spin before I took the plunge............................................ .................................................. ..........................
