Well, I've owned my 2009 Tracer frame for about 8 months now. It's starting to look like a real commitment.
Probably the best "one bike" I've owned. I've put a few Super D races, a 50 mile XC race and quite a few trail rides on it. As good at climbing as it is at descending, the Tracer is a very balanced handling bike the does it all well. I wanted to be able to race XC and SD on the same bike, and with it's current spec I feel good about the set up at either type of event. There will be some obvious compromises on a burlier SD course or a tamer XC course - but there will always be compromises with a one bike quiver.
Maybe a more detailed review later........the muddy pic's say it all. Pure joy.
