Jeff Steber Introduces 2009 Intense UZZI VP PROTOTYPES!

From Jeff Steber himself, August 28, 2008

RED FRAME: Here’s a sneak peek at 2009 Intense Uzzi VP prototypes. There are changes still to be made as this is the 2nd proto but we’re getting closer. Travel adjustment (like 2009 Intense Tracer VP) at 6.75 inches or 7.25 inches. Second generation VPP with new bearing Zirk system for easy maintenance. ISCG 05 integrated bottom bracket, 1.5 head tube. A nice leverage ratio in the 2.5:1 range, with coil or air shock. More info to come.

RAW FRAME: This is another test prototype set up with a Travis 180 singlecrown fork. Please remember these are still protos and there are changes in process to address shock fitament, rate etc. The welds on the dropout are set at 135 but use a chip that will allow standard, 12mm or Maxle rear axle configurations. This is a lighter setup…as you can see we are trying both.
