    Santa Cruz Blur TRc w/27.5 BB Height?

    Aloha,

    Was just wondering for those who have converted TRc from 26 to 27.5, what is the new BB height?

    Thanks so much,

    489mm a2c fork. Mine is at 13.25". An internal cup headset would probably get pretty close to thé same. With santa cruz's stock 501mm à2c

    Thanks so much, sort of the research I'm doing at the moment. The new 27.5 SC bikes look great bur are expensive. Am noticing that their BB's are kinda low and was brain storming potential combinations here. That 13.6 height is looking great.

    You are right on...13.1 may work on buff trails, but as others have pointed out, in rooty, rocky gnar, too many pedal strikes.

    My Nickel is right around 13.7 and it is ideal for me.
