    T29 starts shipping!!

    Tracer 29s are moving through production and out the door. Mediums and Larges first.
    I grabbed some quick pics as I know a lot of you have been waiting for these.
    We are also adding a small size as it translates nicely with the T29 geometry and will expand the T29 to riders in the 5'6" to 5'10" range, 22.5" TT & 17" ST.

    Hey Jeff, do you have any data/info on the shock leverage ration of the two different shock mount positions? From the 26" Tracer threads, there is quite a difference in mid-stroke blow through on the upper (5.5") vs. the lower (5.0") mounting positions. Some have had PUSH Industries re-valve their RP23's for the upper mounting position to achieve the performance of the lower mounting position. Any insight would be great.

    Boo yah.



    Waiting for a call that the UPS guys dropped off my frame with ignazjr at Redstone Cyclery...

    ETA: Mine's going to be way cooler, without all that Shimano stuff.

    I can't get the file to upload but it went something like this:

    Med- 23.5 ETT
    Lrg- 24.5 ETT
    XL- 25.5 ETT

    Most everything else was the same. It would be nice to have clarification.

    The chart sent out to dealers is correct & I didn't notice that old chart posted here was wrong, plus we added the small @ 22.5 TT & 17" st so we will put up a new chart tomorrow.

    Assuming the multiple chainstay numbers can be attributed to the G2 dropouts?

    Whats with the multiple head angles and seat angles? Different forks - 120 vs. 140?

    Frame weights?

    Probably running the 5.0 vs 5.5 travel setting. The Tracer VP 26 numbers vary the same way and its 5.5 to 6.0.

    G2 changes chainstay, wheel base, head angle, seat angle etc. It doesn't just change the stays.

    how long before the small would be available? I want to try one out.... I think the medium might work if I throw a shorty stem on there.

    Love to try this bike but there really isn't a fork to complement it. I assume you can run a 36 float or the like with some kind of travel reducer spacers instead of the weak rock shox and marz offerings.

    So tempted to order this fame, but I think I'll hold off to see if Intense comes out with a new Tracer for 2011.

    Wow. Wow. That is one fine looking filly. I got this 180mm Dorado specifically to put on the T29, but then reverted to PlanA and got an Uzzi instead, so that`s where it resides.

    Just weighed the large raw that we got in today. It's 8.09lb with an RP23 and a QR seat collar. It's beautiful. I can't wait to get it built up!

    We just built one up for a customer. I don't want to steal his thunder so I'm just going to post a teaser shot. The bike should be completed and then delivered today. I'll let him take it from there.....

    One one of the greatest bikes to date! Jealous of the Angleset...mine will have to wait a little longer for mere mortals to obtain. Hammerschmidt makes it look awesome. I'd go that route, but I'm hellbent on staying under 30lbs and still AM. A few more weeks yet.

    I like the gunmetal.
    In fact, I love the gunmetal.
    More acurately, I`m now convinced that Jeff has traded his soul for a StarTrek-type space alien machine that transforms beautiful, sexy, nearly-naked women with machine guns, into bicycle frames.

    I can't find a colour (yes, I'm British) chart on your website. What colours are available for this frame and where can I see them? (not necessarily on a T29)

    Finally decided on one of these frames over a Gary Fisher Rumblefish
