    The 09 Uzzi is going to be sold. I just haven't had time to post it in the classifieds yet. When I got the CB Iodines they just didn't look right on the works blue frame.

    And with the Totem

But one certainly need not fear anything in the forest with this setup. (Don't bring a knife to a gunfight mentality here)

    that strip is transparent. noticed how it's the frame's blue where it touches the paint and lighter blue where it does not?

    let me have my guess.... cut open a transparent hose that has a large enough diameter but not too thick of a wall. although i've never seen one before.

    Oh man, all this large, raw Uzziness is making my palms furry.

    Still waiting on my frame - just got home from work, Fedex tracking says it`s here, in Tokyo, cleared customs, in the local depot. So I call Fedex - JUST MISSED TODAY`S delivery cutoff....

    Anyway, TOMORROW MORNING, LIKE 12 HOURS FROM NOW, IT WILL BE HERE:

    Been riding it since last September, no problems. Just have to make sure the chain guide is rotated all the way forward. I feel like it's probably slightly slower off a dead stop, like at the beginning of a course, but all in all got to say I really like it. I do 3000 ft elevation climbs with it regularly, and it's taken some pretty good whacks in the rock gardens that haven't phased it yet, so it's pretty tough. The spring is a Obtanium #400.

    hi guys

    so I read the complete uzzi thread and I need your help. everyone writes something different about the Hub on the dhx air.

    according to the intense website it shoudl be a 2,75 hub on the coils and a 2,5 inch on the dhx airs and that makes also sense to me why the travel reduces on the air according to the 0,25 less hub.
    but some guys are writing that their air has 2,75 hub ?!
    if it would be 2,75 than the travel should be constantly the same on the airs like with the coils?!

    the travel with the air dhx with 2,5 shoudl be 162 mm and 173 mm
    travel / hub 2,75 = ... x 2,5 = ...travel with the air

    Do-it-all

    I started a small bike company last year and had to sell all my bikes to fund it. Not like I had a hundred bikes or something but it hurts selling your loved ones on eBay.

    Anyway 10 months on and after the forced clearout, companies running and I decided to get a new love... a do it all weapon that everyone on this thread knows pretty well.

    Up and Down


    Down


    Changeover takes about 30 mins.

    Thanks to everyone on this thread I've been following it for 5 months or so and you convinced me to get the Uzzi you see here.

    Awesome man, loooooooove it.

    I just got my Uzzi; I have a `05 180mm Dorado and I`m awaiting a 2011 Fox 36 and I`m planning to switch them out like you. What`s your front brake situation? Are you using one front brake, or two? And what headset did you go with? Any feedback to report?

    Cheers, Running a Hope M4 front and rear. 200mm rotor works pretty fine and stops me on the button, but I'll possibly experiment with a V2 on the front at some point.

    Headset was a CK devolution. Didn't really have much option on this as I needed a headset I could use a 1.5" (Lyrik) and a 1.1/8" (40) steerer, without any fuss.

    Feels a bit weird having quite a high front end, as I've been used to running Zero Stacks and flush reducer headsets, but it's a whole lot cheaper than new set of forks plus I like 1.5" steerers' in general.

    I'm off to the Alps later this week to 'rag' it so I'll let you know which set up I prefer!

    Fixed rotors for Hope V2 brakes. I was supposed to get a smaller rotor for the rear, but somebody made a mistake and I ended up getting 203 for the front and rear. A smaller one has been ordered...

    I do not find these discs not ventilated for my V2 by any side.......the Ventilated ones sound very much (clink,clink,clink) and they will weigh more.

    Great bike.

    Thanks. You can order the rotors through any Hope dealer, they are even cheaper then the ventilated ones. I do think the (thinner) ventilated ones are a bit lighter though, but the difference is marginal and these have better clearance (ventilated would not fit with my fork / hub in the front).

    Couple recent updates and a (slightly) better pick. Swapped out the GARBAGE prowler mx tires for a set of minion dhf 2.5 3c and a minion dhf 2.35 60a paired with a larsen 2.35 for climbing / trail days. Also swapped out the bar for rf atlas fr. Saint cranks, e13 lg1+ and tapered 2011 fox talas 180 rc2 on the way.

    Hi,
    i'm considering to invest my hard earned money into the UZZI VP.

    - BUT there is one big problem: WHAT SIZE should i take M or L.

    This annoying question is probably asked twice a week- BUT for those who are in possession of this toy- please give an Answer!!

    I'm 185cm & innerleg 86cm
    Riding style is more descent and singletrail- i really do like compact bikes but i don't know if i would be comfortable with a M?

    i don't have a chance on demoning.....

    Cheers from Berlin

    I would say L with a 0 set back post and short stem. I built mine with a 20mm set back post and 90mm stem (accidently, thought I was using a shorter one) and the fit is great. Will be testing with my 70mm stem, but set back post is staying 189cm).

    I'm looking into getting an Uzzi or something like it. I'm looking for a bike that is more downhill performance oriented but can also climb a bit, I don't do really any technical climbs most of the stuff I do is on fire roads and occasionally some trails but again nothing technical! Would the Uzzi be a good fit for me? Also how is The Uzzi as far as jumping?

    Yes, it should fit that description well. It, pretty good for technical climbing too. If the fireroads are very steep then go for a fork that has u-turn (or similar), but even with a 170mm fork, low stack headset and no travel adjust it still climbs well.

    Just got my Uzzi together. Just wanted to thank you guys for the info you gave me, so I could get this thing together. Everything is together but the shifters in the pics. Broke its cherry alittle. Got some amazing air time on this bike. It lives in the air. Just need to spend some time dialing it in alittle more.

    those brake levers are a bit pointed down don't you think? it would look painful seeing your wrist when you're on your bike.

    Lol...yeah nothing on the bars were tighten down. I had to add the shifters later b/c I ran out of cable housing. So they are just kinda hanging out. This bike is begging for a 180 vanilla. I cant believe how well it rode. Climbed better than I thought. Got to get used to that lower BB.

    Hell yeah Pumpkin that rig is cooooool. I`m thinking about putting the 180 Float on my large/raw, so it`s great to see yours with the Talas.

    Did you polish your frame?

    My problem is, that it's very rare for me to have my bike in a pretty location and my camera in hand (the camera is too large). I'll work on getting a pic, personally I prefer the gray stickers.

    They are only loud when they are wet, like all hopes... Few brakings to dry them and the noise goes away.

    Medium to short cage switch?

    Has anyone here (using a single ring up front) switched from a medium to a short cage rear? notice any differences (good or bad)? Pedals worse, or better? Less chain rattle? I'll be posting pics of my new uzzi soon.

    Derailleur cage lenght will not affect pedalling, just shifting. I switched from a long cage xtr to a saint, and have switched between short and mid x9's in the past. Shorter cages shift a bit crisper.

    Nothing to do with Uzzis, I ride a Tracer, but I run 2x9 with a long cage xt. Will going to a mid cage for me give me a tighter (shorter) chain and crisper shifts? Wjat are the benefits?

    The cage length has nothing to do with the bike and everything to do with the cassette you run. With a mid cage you can run up to a 30T, anything bigger and you need a long cage.

    just when your are running tripple in front. with 2 rings you can use the medium with 34T too.
    Sokrates is dead, Galilei is dead, Newton is dead, Einstein is dead, Pantani is dead and i am feeling sick too.

    so with a single ring up front and 34t on the cassette, a short cage should be fine, right? Ive seen them on a lot of bikes.... but then again I don't know what the cassette size on those bikes were.

    Short cage will be fine with a single front. Generally medium for two front rings and long for three. To be on the safe side there is a thread in drive train Forum section with instructions on how to calculate.

    Yeah, I was just about to move this discussion to drivetrain. Sorry for highjacking the Uzzi thread. I lurk here a lot. If I had bigger mountains, I would be riding an Uzzi. Great looking bikes.

    Back on the Trail

    So after The Stick From Hell, I finally have my Uzzi back together. That stick cost me one rear i9 Enduro (or more exactly 11 spokes; waiting for them so I can rebuild it), one XO rear derailleur, one G3 dropout, and on my first ride yesterday I realized that my XTR cassette is all bent up too, from having the derailleur wrapped around it. Also, I noticed that I had yet more sidewall tears in my tires from that damned trail, so the new parts are:

    Spinergy Enduro wheelset, with 2010 NobbyNics (which are amazing)

    SRAM x9 RD - can`t say if it`s better/worse/different from the xo, because my cassette is so wonky I`m getting lots of chatter and the occasional unwanted shifts

    New G3 dropout which may as well be made out of gold or platinum...

    I rode that trail, finally, all of it. No sticks. No 3 hour walk. No busted ass bike. Just a super sweet trail and my amazing, wonderful bicycle. All`s goooooooood

    I recommend you look into this a bit more. I've never run a cassette with less then 34t on a short cage derailleur, and never had a problem. If I would have more then one chainring on the front it would be a problem.

    How many teeth on your front? Is the Widget everything it claims to be?

    I don't really know what it claims...

    + It's light
    + Chain stays on
    + It's a good size for most of my local trails

    I feel the "bash" (should not call it a bash really) is made of tin rather then aluminium. You just show it an obstacle and it folds over. I've had to twist it a few times just to be able to get the chain to run freely. I'm going to mod a proper bash on it if I have the chance before it completely explodes (it's actually pretty bent in that picture too).
