Top 2017 Mountain Bikes: 2017 Intense Tracer Bike Review and Test Ride. Join me and Rick today as we explore Vale Lake trails. Today Im reviewing the 2017 Intense Tracer. This is a special review for me since I currently own the 2016 Intense Tracer. The Intense Tracer was equipped with Rockshox Pike Fork. Shimano XT 1×11, with XT brake levers and breaks. The 2017 Intense Tracer that Im demoing today is an expert build, which is just above the entry build. The wheel set on this expert build is quite heavy compared to the pro-build. I highly recommend getting the Pro-build the weight difference on the mountain bikes wheel set was very substantial. The way in which the 2017 Intense Tracer differentiates itself form the 2016 Intense Tracer is that it has boost, rear shock is mounted to the bottom tube, unlike the 2016 Intense Tracer that is connected to the top tube. The geometry of the 2017 Intense Tracer is lower and slacker than the previous model. The Rockshox fork also sports 165mm in travel in front compared to the previous 160 from the years previous Intense Tracer. All these modifications make for bike that is geared more towards enduro than the 2016 Intense Tracer. The is a two part review, which starts with some steep climbs and some descent single track. The following episode will have the full on descent from the top! LET’S DROP IN!
