- Any Intense Tracer Owners on STW?
A quick sizing question: would a Medium Tracer be the correct size for me (6′ tall)?
Compared to my previous 2 frames the head angle is the same, the seat angle is 1.5-2 degrees slacker & the effective top tube length of the Tracer is 1″ shorter.
This is the figure that bothers me the most.
A layback seatpost &/or slightly longer stem could compensate for this.
(I have a 50mm stem on my current bike, so going longer (65/70mm) is a valid option.)

Although not mine, my dad has has a Tracer 2 in a size large. He’s 6’2″ and I’m 6’1″. For me it seems perfect, lots of standover and very comfortable when sat down and stood up.
What I’d be looking at is the difference in TT length between the medium and large, the large is an inch longer, which would make it similar to your previous frames. If you like the feel of this top tube length then plump for a large, which I’d recommend.
Best way to find out is to sit on one, I’m sure there will be people on here local who’d let you chuck a leg over their pride and joy 🙂Posted 6 years agoKryton57Subscriber
@ Slowrider – we talked earlier in the week – I didnt realise the shock(s) you have/had for sale is from a Tracer? – I’m interested then of your experience with the DHX 5.0 – would you mind emailing me with an opinion – I still have my eye on your ad!
