    I used a ZS bottom headset cup.
    I've just added a EC one, 1 cm more, the bike is just better !!! Brillant
    I going to mount a Deville 1'1/8 with the ZS, 530mm A2C+bottom cup.
    I's the best way to ride the trc. It's so well balanced.

    Sweet TRc flipin. How are you finding the forks @150mm I never liked my fox at 150mm so I'm back down to 130mm seems to be the sweet spot I think... I have pikes on my bronson and they really are the best forks out there.

    I'm digging it so far. I actually have another TRc with a 140mm fork which I think is the sweet spot (I like a higher bottom bracket) but wanted to give the 150mm a try. It just takes some tiny adjustments in body position during very steep climbing, but the performance advantages of the Pike over the 32 Float more than makes up for the slight inconvenience.

    My new to me TRC medium.
    XT brakes, shifters and derailleur. DTswiss wheels. Since I got the bike. I changed out the grip, raceface carbon handle bar, 50mm stem, odi grip, spanks spike pedal and took out the big ring and put a gamut bash on it.
    I drop the chain once, thinking about adding the chainguide to it if the chain drops again.
    Coming from a Blur LTC. This one is so much more fun that the LTC because this one fits me better as my LTC was a size too big for me. I found the TRC has a little bit of bob when pedaling. The LTC on the other hand doesn't have much bobing maybe because the Kashima is so much smoother or the higher leverage shock on the TRC compare to the LTC.
    But overall, This bike is perfect for where I ride and I love it so far.

    hi all,

    has anyone swapped from a Float32 to Float36 or vice versa? is there a remarkable difference? i'm wondering if i really need to upgrade like all the mechanics at my LBS think i should.

    here's a little about myself. i'm a fit 265lbs. i'm 40yo, so i'm not hucking off any huge boulders... i'd say 5' is my max. i run the fork at 130mm. i've got a 203mm rotor up front and have only noticed it rubbing after a long downhill.

    open to all input. thanks in advance...

    Here it goes, in XC long distance setup, this bottle cage installed on seatpost is truly nice.
    Probably final iteration before move to 650b... No cracks nor dissbonding yet, so far so good

    Re: Blur TRc pictures

    Only had a quick spin but it feels amazing.

    Its not night and day but the weight difference in the wheels is very noticable and i hope the roll over will be improved when i get into some rock gardens.

    The longer travel is great, at 150 the front feels a little lighter on steep climps not unmanagble and of course i can drop it to 120.

    Only negative is the fork is used and makes a clunk when i pull ul hard... got some work to do to diagnose that.

    Have some flat pedas and a shorter stem on the way. It will have two personalities for play and racing by swapping out tje dropper/stem/pedals. Hoping it proves to be a true one bike quiver!

    Figured I would post a picture of my after work ride. I'm really liking the Pike now that I've put a few miles on it and got it dialed in. This bike is seriously a blast to ride.

    No TRc on the updated santacruz website, maybe I'm missing something but are we to assume it has been discontinued?

    I think that's a pretty good assumption. I'm surprised they didn't post a V10 with 27.5's.

    How are you liking the DBAir on the TRc? I had one on my previous bike (Tracer VP) and loved it. Seriously considering the DB Inline if I keep my TRc. Are you running the pike at 140 or 150? Sweet setup. I ride Aliso about once a week, demo'd a new Nomad last weekend and took it for a lap at Aliso, super fun bike. Made the rock garden on Rockit feel like a carpet, ha.

    I wonder if they will offer the remaining frames on sale, like they did 2 years ago.
    Or they might just keep them for warranty replacement.

    Hi Steineken, I built it up for a point to point stage race 40kms but I ended up racing my bronson c it's a large and more comfortable. Being a medium and I'm 5'11 it's a bit small for me I prefer to take it out on shorter rides. I hope this helps cheers Clint

    Thanks! I'm loving the DBA! The stock RP23 was an improvement over the stock RP23 on my BlurLT, but the DBA is just so supple when the speed picks up. My one complaint is that I can't fit a waterbottle on it now for shorter rides. If I didn't already have the DBA I would get the DBInline in a heartbeat. The Pike is a 150mm. (The fork before that was a Fox Float 34 160mm lowered to 150mm.)

    I moved to Aliso in mid-January and didn't get a chance to ride for a few months, but I'm loving it now. Funny you demo'd a Nomad, I've been wanting to demo a Bronson on Rockit just to see what it feels like on the 27.5's. Now that I have the suspension pretty dialed my TRc rockets through the rock gardens pretty well. I just don't have the confidence yet to fully let it loose.

    Thanks for the info. When I had the Nomad my buddy was following me on his 5010. He's usually a little faster than me and he was blown away with how fast the Nomad was through the rock garden. I usually take the mid/left line and those huge holes at the very end are pretty harsh on my TRc. I wasn't even phased by them on the Nomad, it was crazy. I suspect the Bronson would be between the two. I'm currently debating selling my M9 and TRc and building up a Bronson or Nomad as my only bike. The Path has both for demo btw.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Hey Guys,

    I guess I just get one of the very last Blur's!
    I offered me a TRC frame before Christmas.
    The building part is done now.
    Nothing very fancy but It's efficient enough in my opinion (and for now).

    I love the bike.
    I just noticed some flexibility coming from the lower link when I push hard on the pedals while braking. I guess it's normal...
    What do you think?
    Otherwise it feels stiff when I use it.

    Hi Nico30,
    Nice one!

    This is 142model, don't think any flex should be easily feel. If I were you would check immedietly all axles.

    It just happen when I break from the rear and if I push on the pedal.
    I don't feel any play it only seems to flex. It did the same on my old bike, but I hoped it won't happen on this one!

    I live not far away from the french SC importator. Maybe I should go there and check.

    I don't have any torque wrench for now...

    Check and see if your rotors are tight. It could also be play in the brakes.

    I had the same issue with my TRc. My crank would actually rub the driveside chainstay during hard climbing efforts.
    I know this doesn't help you, but the Solo is MUCH stiffer. If you are the original owner, just wait for the circle crack
    and warranty it to a newer/stiffer frame.

    I assume you've checked that all the pivots are torqued to spec? My new TRa does not move like that. I weigh 190 geared up.

    Don't crank on them for no reason, check the torque like this: Tech Tuesday: Adjust the Pivot Bearings on Any Santa Cruz VPP Suspension - Pinkbike

    Nico30,
    You are overthinkig simple things, I guess. Can you sleep at night?
    It has been said, check pivots... Play is not normal, especially you dont look, pardon, to be heavy giant

    And one more thing, Nico. Even racing road frame will flex if you hammer it strong while bike is standing stil, on brakes etc etc

    No one designs and builds absolutelly stiff frame cause it would weight double

    Check pivots!

    Take the same video but this time use a high gear (big chainring / small cassette cog) and no braking. To me it looks like normal lateral flex caused by a high drivetrain torque load, while stationary.

    Men, you may be right.
    I got a stressfull job, I managed to be not stressed anymore. And now I got stressed by a bike!

    Anyway when I bought a Santa Cruz I expected to buy engeneering and quality. I'm a bit disapointed. I just wanna know if what i see is normal or not. I'm not pushing hard on the pedals in the video... I'm not trying to break my chain!

    I biked all afternoon today though and, men, it is the best bike I ever owned!

    Nico30, I had to watch your video a few times to make certain I understand what you are talking about. I doubt anything is wrong with the frame, so it is just the design of the frame I guess. I have a TRc also, and it is not the stiffest frame I use. I can feel a little flex on the trail, but nothing extreme. As others have said, check the torque and watch for those cracks (though you may never have a problem).

    My main ride is a Blur LTc built big, which is much, much more stiff than the TRc. But then, the LTc is more stiff than a Nomadc or V10c that I have used.

    Thanks for your answer.
    I didn't know the LTc was more stiff.
    I have no crack yet! Good thing because I've been riding this bike for less than a month!
    I don't have a torque wrench... That's a shame, I know! I'm gonna get one and check my pivots.

    I wouldn't bother using a torque wrench, the rating they use 100 in/lbs if I remember correctly) is way OTT and I broke a couple of bolts, 50in/lbs is enough or just go sensibly and use grease and loctite as necessary.

    That's the locking bolts not the pivots, but yeah, that's still too high as admitted by SC.

    Interesting observation. I don't see any reason why the Blur LTc would be stiffer than those others.
