Differencies to Intense...

FSR rear suspension is much smoother and propedal is really working when put on.

VPP did´t work together with RP23 and propedal. I had shock tuned and did´t use propedal at all... then it was ok, but FSR is much better.

Frame is lighter and a lot stiffer.

Head angle is now what it says, I dont believe Tracer had what they promise, it felt steeper.

Great looking bike there Shamus, be sure to post an update with the red King hubs 8) Nice photos too!

The Horst/FSR system takes some beating IMHO. I own/have owned quite a few bikes using it: 1st gen Specialized FSR, Dagger FS, Intense Uzzi and Tazer and a Titus Racer X as my current main ride.
