    Intense Tracer help needed

    There is Intense Tracer for sale ($660), a frame build up, and I'm would like opinions on this bike. I'm not familiar with this model, seems a bit heavy. Does it have a 1.5" headset?
    I have been looking for a used Stumpjumper XC with disk brakes. However this Intense Tracker is interesting. Below are the specifics.
    Thanks in advance,
    Uni

    The add reads:
    I built this bike from a bare frame (used 2003 model, size large, 24"TT) in July of 2007 and only rode it 30 times total (only 5 times in 2008). Most of the components were new in 2007, including:

    Fox F80 RLT fork with lockout and adjustable rebound and travel (2006 model),
    Raceface ATLAS X-Type crank (new in 2008)
    Shimano XT Shadow rear derailleur (new in 2008)
    Thomson Seat post,
    Specialized S-Works carbon handlebar ,
    Mavic X3.1 Tubeless Wheelset with XTR hubs,
    SRAM 9 speed 34-12 cassette for getting up those steep hills

    The following were used, but are in good usable condition:

    Fox Float RC rear shock with lockout and adjustable rebound (leaks down from 200psi to 150psi over the course of a week, but holds 150psi),
    SRAM 9.0 Hydraulic Disk brakes (new pads in July),
    Deore Shifters with new shift cables
    Specialized Roll-X tires (non-tubeless)

    *pedals are not included*,

    The bike is in good riding condition and currently needs nothing done. It weighs 29lbs and is built to withstand the abuse of a 6' 200lb rider. You couldn't build a bike like this right now for under $2000. It should fit someone 5'10" to 6'2"

    1.5 headset? Uh, no.

    If you can get a look at the thing, and it's in good sahpe/no messed up pivots/bad dents/cracks, etc., then that is a decent price. Though the brakes are either Juicy brakes from Avid/SRAM or they are some older SRAM units that were re-labeled Gramica units. SRAM doesn't do brakes under the "SRAM" name, but Avid.

    Thanks for the info, especially about the brakes. I like the Tracer's rear suspension but I'm going to wait till I find Stumpjumper. I went to Intense's website and their phone number isn't even there. I didn't like what I read about their customer service.
