    -CB Iodines with a 2.4 Minion up front & a 2.35 High Roller out back
    -SLX cranks & SRAM 2x9 drivetrain
    -Point1 50mm stem & Easton Havoc DH carbon bar
    -Formula The One brakes
    -CB Mallets & a Kronolog post, switching the saddle to a Fizik Tundra 2

    I've only had 1 ride on it and it felt great. Very fun bike! I'd like to change to a SRAM XX1 drivetrain and maybe a RS Revelation WC. I weigh about 225, so I'm not sure I want a smaller fork than the 36...
    nice bike !

    Hi thx for the replies regarding sizing and rider heights etc.
    Another question I forgot to ask was there space or if possible to carry a water bottle
    Cage and bottle on the small frame ?
    As I thought someone told me that's one downfall of the blur trc.
    Thx Andy

    Hi

    I was looking at the picture you posted last March? What crank set did you on your TRc? Is that a raceface Next SL? If so, What is the BCD of that crank. Looking at the picture I think it is 104? Am I right?

    Here's mine. Most of the parts were transferred over from my Blur LTa. First ride was yesterday and strangely the cockpit felt more cramped than my old LT(both are mediums). So I guess I'll be tweaking the settings some more

    hi wondering what size your frame is here as i've heard and read water bottles are hard to fit in on the blur trc but your pic it looks all ok, thought i heard that on the small frames its a problem and i'm looking at buying a small.
    thx

    It's better than BLTa? Climbing? Descending? And do you note the lower BB?

    I'd say yes, definitely on all levels. Climbs better, descends better and handles FAR better. The advantages in climbing and descending are there, but not enough to warrant an upgrade for me, but the handling was NOTICEABLY better when I demo'd one. Sure the BB is low, but just like with any other bike, you learn to adjust . . . for the first hour of the demo, I was very conscious of the BB. However, once you get used to it, its second nature.

    IMO, the BLT just doesn't have a place in the lineup anymore . . . as a 26" bike anyway

    26" Trail? --> TRc.
    26" AM? --> Nomad.

    Doesn't mean the BLT isn't a great bike, because it is . . . I just think that the TRc and Nomad are more purpose built bikes and offer less compromise for an intended purpose than the BLT.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    My cranks and pedals are all beaten by rocks and the BB on my BLT is 13.5, I like the TRc but the BB is very very lower, and I love my Skidmark BLT

    Yeah, I mean I love my BLT as well but the TRc was a superb bike for what/where I ride . . . faster and more stable in every regard. However, the difference wasn't THAT noticeable to make me want to take a financial hit.

    I went from a BLT2 to a TRc and kind of agree with 007 that it's all around a better bike but probably not worth upgrading for most. That being said I don't regret the upgrade, I get a lot of enjoyment from riding. I love the LT but there were some little things that I thought could be better and the TRc fixes those.

    I'll be in the market for a new frame here in the next few months and its going to come down to the TBLT or the TRc . . . all a matter of how much money I want to drop

    No. Only the Nomad can take a fork that big.

    Quick question, if you were to get a Monarch Plus for the TRc, what tuning (low, medium, high) for compression and rebound would work well? I also understand that the rp23 has a volume reducer in too, is it the medium one?

    Finally a pic of mine. Was 2x10, just went 1x10 and added a Zee short cage. Used to have an MRP 2x, broke it, and it's got an e13 LG1 now. Much more bomber.



    Just put a minion dhf up front (used to be a weirwolf) and I'm in love all over again.

    Product of the VPLS. One ride in and I'm happy. Need to dial it in and will probably swap the bars with Havens so my Nomad can have its bars back. In the process of tracking down some 650b wheels. These are off of my Nomad with some 2.35 rubber on them. I'm 6'2" and have often ridden large frames; I'm very glad I went with the XL this time.

    Has anyone used a zero stack lower cup on a medium TRc with a Revelation fork?

    I'm worried that the compression lever will foul the downtube
