Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have two months and 223 miles on this bad boy and I'm lovin' it!
I was considering a Trek Fuel or Remedy when a buddy let me borrow his Tracer for the day. I was hooked.
I was originally thinking I would go with the Expert build, but I really wanted a 1x10 drivetrain, so when my shop's owner told me he had all three builds in stock in my size, I took a hard look the the Pro Build.
With the Enve wheelset, XX1 drivetrain, XTR brakes, and carbon Renthal bars, the Factory Build is definitely a substantial bump up from the Pro Build, but for me, the Pro Build was the sweet spot in the lineup. The Pro Build he had in stock had the Cane Creek Double Barrel Air shock upgrade, and as the one I had demoed had it as well, it was a done deal.
I'm totally stoked on this thing. I've never had this much fun on a bike, ever. The Pike fork (and the Tracer overall) is everything you've heard and read about. It's a hero maker.
