    The axle is a Hadley, and the Ti spring is a 400lb Obtainium.

    Thanks Rick, I'm lovin' the Uzzi.

    I ordered the spring through Obtainium's website, so I never actually talked to a human.

    Here's my rig... Just got the rear wheel back from building (Hope Pro II @ 150X12), as you can see I like Hope (brakes & front 20mm hub as well). Just tooled around the yard with it, need to lightly loctite the dropout bolts yet and I'm ready to go for tomorrow.

    Couple of upgrades needed yet (shifters are ghetto - 1 X9 HS, and a rear X* twistie). I tried the grip shift on the HS and it does work, but if you don't nail the shift the whole way, the HS slips, the thumb shifter is the way to go, and I'll have to convert fully in the near future. The XTR derailer is a long cage, I'd like to stick a new SRAM on there sometime, just not now... I have 5 hungry kids as well.

    Brando - How come you got a team green Uzzi? Seems there are white ones and green ones that aren't officially available. Do you know them at Intense?
    oh, OK - just saw the post about the "mistake".

    So Brando - I just got mine built - photo to follow. I put on 1.5" totems. I think it looks like you went for a 1.125" steerer. How come?

    I got the 1.125 WAY cheaper than I could get the 1.5. I had a thread going in the "Shocks and Suspension" forum about the stiffness difference between the two sizes in steerertubes and nobody could really say they felt the 1.5 was noticibly stiffer. The general consenus was that the 1.5 size headtube allowed for a stronger frame/headtube, which was the weak link, not the steerertube.

    I'm loving this setup!
    If/when I retire my SS this would be the setup I throw down with.. Can I ask what the bb height & head-angle is on this rig? Love the color as well

    Sorry, I don't have the exact specs on that bike and it's currently on its way to Whistler (man, am I jealous!). I can get the specs when he comes back.

    Infamous - Plz tell me exactly what chain guide setup that is and whether it works. Did you make any mods? Spacers?

    Hey Phat Hair - It's not my bike, so I can't speak first hand. But, that's a 2010 LG1 E-thirteen guide. My buddy didn't modify anything, and said It was tight on the bottom around the bash plate/ISCG mount but fit just fine.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Dre. BB is 14.3", this is with G3 in longest wheelbase setting and shock in 7" travel mode. Bear in mind the 2.4 Rubber Queens have mahoosive volume! I'm not clever enough to measure head angle...care to advise how? Cheers.

    I usually cheat & use tiltmeter or clinometer on my iphone, or you can get an angle finder at the hardware store for pretty cheap. Thanks for the info, she's a beauty

    Ok, Ipod says 66 degrees. Don't know how accurate that is, but interestingly, two separate angle apps said the same thing.

    Nice Uzzi pictures !!!!

    I ask my question here about Uzzi frame sizing. I'm 1m72 tall (5,64 feet)
    Actually i run a SantaCruz Heckler Medium frame with 22,5" toptube size with an 50 mm stem.

    What will be the best Uzzi Vp size for me. The small size have a 22" toptup and the medium size is 23".

    My ride is like for all do-it-all bikes : pedals (30-40 km), jumps, freeride and dh

    Finally got mine built up last night. Not quite as exotic as some, but I am digging it! Sorry the photo quality isn't great.

    Frame: Medium Uzzi VP, Works Blue,
    Rear shock: Fox DHX 4.0
    Fork: Fox 36 Van RC2 tapered steer tube
    Headset: King 1.5
    Stem: Pro FRS 50mm
    Bars: Pro FRS
    Seatpost: Pro FRS
    Seat: WTB Devo
    Brakes: Shimano XT 180mm front & rear
    Shifters: Shimano XT
    F/R derailleurs: Shimano XT
    Cranks: Saint 175mm
    Bottom Bracket: Saint
    Chain: Shimano XTR
    Pedals: Shimano 647
    Wheels: Shimano XT, XTR cluster
    Tires: Kenda Nevegal 2.35 tubeless

    She tops the scales at 35.0 pounds. I may need to procure some ti springs as a dietary measure. The gear indicators will be coming off too!

    I'm curious why a DHX4 comes with the Uzzi as opposed to a DHX5?

    Unless I'm mistaken, I'm pretty sure there is no DHX5 for 2010.

    Nobody can answer me? What is the best ?

    A medium frame with a 35 mm stem
    or
    A small frame with a 60 mm stem

    All I can say mate is that I'm 5' 10" and the medium is spot on for me with 45mm stem.
