    Thanks
    I hoped it would have been lighter though.

    Nice setup. That is a very reasonable weight for a "trail bike". No issues with the 650b NN and that Fox fork right?

    Nice bit of kit. I wouldn't complain about that weight with a dropper post. You must have a TB LTc to get close to that weight. I gather you run all 3 wheel sizes depending on the trails,like me.

    It is a TBc (Not an LT though)
    It is almost identical, Easton Carbon wheels, xo group 1x10.
    I run it more XC with Schwalbe RR 2.4 front and 2.25 rear.
    Formula R1 brakes and XX cassette. Different stem. 125mm Lev.

    Turned out pretty nice I'd say! Is that that a 2.35 Nobby Nic on the front of the 650b wheelset, and could you possibly provide a bottom bracket height measurement (to center of the spindle)?

    Cool, thanks for getting that. Seems low (i.e. good) considering stock is listed at 13.1 w/ a 130mm fork, but I think I remember seeing others listing a sub 13.5" height w/ 650'bs too, so the stock height must be taken using some pretty big 26" tires.

    I had to limit the travel, the tire hit the fork at full compression.

    Wow, sweet expensive rig. 25.26lbs. Nice. My TRc with XT drivetrain and Stans Crest 650b wheels comes in at 26lbs 7ozs.

    The TRc is one of the best mtb's I've had. I'm actually starting to like it more than my 160mm Mojo HD. It's 32lbs 13oz so its not great for climbing but a bomber on DH. But this TRc with the 650b feels nearly as capable but what a breeze climbing being 6lbs lighter.

    Your TRc must ride super sweet. I've got the 2.35 NN on the rear and they are very confidence inspiring - gobs of traction.

    Just wanted to make sure that is not a typo. 2.35 650B Nobby Nic fits on the back of a TRc?

    bump...

    Think he's runnin a 2.25 racing ralph in the rear but would also like to know if the 2.35 Nobby Nic fits the rear as well.... or is it too much junk for a TRc trunk?

    There is room in the frame to run the 2.35 Nobby Nic. But you would probably have to limit the travel a lot to avoid rubbing the seat tube on big hits.
