I'll throw up a few posts here on occasion. The riding season is rapidly coming to an end in my parts but I'll be posting some ride reports and such once Southern Utah warms up a bit. Then when spring finally rolls in up here in the north I'll be able to post some more local stuff.

I coulda swore I had a yoga pants picture around here somewhere that I could post though...

Hmmhh? I thought that I had posted pics of Agent orange here already? Guess not.

I have since added a KS Integra dropper post.

My year old Flux 3.0 after a ride today. I wanted raw but they were out of stock so they put me in a small polished and it's slowly becoming raw. Sounds like the aluminum Flux is no more.

Picked up another banana bike early last month and been riding it a lot dialing it in. Last night I took the fatty out for a neighborhood putt and caught myself reaching down to the top tube to shift it :lol:

Between all my bikes I have 1 grip shift, 1 trigger, 1 stick, one thumb and 2 single speed coaster brake so confusion is gonna happen

Hey DJ, where's your new frame? I was wondering how you found it? Was it local? I'm looking forward to seeing it all put together, hopefully soon. :handgestures-thumbup:

Did you consider a newer frame (not that the ol' Uzzi isn't a good ride!)?

Nice bike! How do you like the smaller wheels, Hawg?

And yes, I miss Bootleg canyon and the perfect Nevada weather. :mrgreen:

Let me try this again. I couldn't get a photo to upload the other day due to it being too big.

_______________DIVIDERS________________;)

Did someone mention "tis the season"?

There's nothing wrong with my current UZZI-SL frame.

BUT

I came across something on eBay I couldn't pass up. A NOS "new old stock" UZZI-SL frame identical to one I have. It just arrived and it's brand spanking new. It's been hanging on a bike shop wall as a show piece all these years. A 2K. frame back in the day I picked it up for what people are selling used rear triangles for this frame. My plan is to rebuild my fork through PUSH industries and then switch over my current build to this frame. New frame new shock new pivot point bearing. As you all know my current Intense has lasted me 13 years. This one should have the same longevity. At least get me through a season or two up until I'm ready to get a current frame.

Edit: Well the photos to big to upload, sorry.

Mook I wasn't in the market for a new current frame. Just not in a financial situation right now to drop that kind of coin. This bike has been outstanding in every way. Great descender and decent climber. A playful 26'er that's a great all around trail bike.

Too big a photo?

Yeah, I agree, nice find DJ! It's pretty amazing that a frame like this was available. I'll be looking forward to the completed build.

Thanks guys, I knew if I had passed it up I'd be kicking myself. Is that photo too big? Should I delete it?

The pic is fine, if humongous. But it doesn't affect the width of the entire thread, only your post so no problem. Plus we're getting a nice closeup of the hardware. :handgestures-thumbup:

Well it's good to know it's not effecting the whole thread. It made the thread smaller on my end.

Keep that photo up there, DJ. That frame design is very effective, and with a current day shock it can be turned into a very efficient climber as well.

For example, my '05 Joker now has the largest stroke Manitou 3-way Swinger shock that Answer makes. I have the pro-pedal pressure set at just enough to do the trick, and the bike climbs better than most 4" travel bikes.
For a single pivot frame, it doesn't have any issues with stiffening up while braking that I can perceive, so that's pretty good for a 7" travel frame.
I also set it up with a good 1" of sag, which makes for excellent small bump compliance, even under braking.

So, I find it really cool that you are using a 13 year old frame and design. It's as good now as it was then. Just like the Joker, but over the years, I've re-done it a few times, and in its' present configuration, I think it's the best Joker yet!
And like your Intense, it's also my second frame of the same design. There's something to be said for consistency!

Actually, I'd like to see MORE photos of that frame. How about some closeups of them fine Intense welds?

Yeah I've always wondered how a modern shock would change the climbing efficiently of that design. The 4-Bar Linkage is an excellent climber and descender and I've never been disappointed in the FOX Vanilla RC shock in any situation. But a change would be interesting. As for some photos of the welds I'll try to get that done tommorrow. I put the frame back in it's box and to bed until the future build. That's one thing that has always impressed me is the amazing welds that Intense hand built in the USA frames possess. One well known welder named "Rick The Welder" was the craftsman [possibly still] back then.
