I'm riding an Intense Uzzi-SL. What can I say, it's a great bike. The Tracer has been voted the best all around trail bike by numerous mags. The Horst 4-bar suspension is licensed from Specialized and is IMO the best suspension design available. Quality from Intense is top-notch, all the welds are beautiful, there are a ton of CNC'd parts (even cable-guides) and the paint is thick and perfect.
My only complaint would be the stickers are OVER the clearcoat. Not a big deal!
The difference in the Tracer and the Uzzi-SL is the seat tower is integrated on the Tracer, and it's built to be a lighter bike utilizing an air shock as opposed to a coil-over. I chose the Uzzi because I'm a Clydesdale and wanted a bit beefier bike.
You really can't go wrong with the Tracer, or any Intense for that matter!
