LUKE’S IN­TENSE TRACER PRO £3,999

Mountain Biking UK - - LONG-TERM RIDES -

While I’ve man­aged to get the Tracer’s cock­pit set up just right, with an ENVE M7 bar and stem, I haven’t had any joy with the rear shock. I swapped out the bro­ken Fox Float X2 for a top-tier ‘Fac­tory’ se­ries re­place­ment. But again, a faulty seal has led to that tell­tale squelch­ing sound that in­di­cates cav­i­ta­tion, where air is mix­ing with the oil. Ad­di­tion­ally, a sus­pected bro­ken shim stack has been caus­ing a loud clunk over rough ter­rain. On to my third Float X2 and I’m hop­ing for a bet­ter re­sult! www.sad­dle­back.co.uk
