    I was noticing some rear end flex that would result in brake howl when I cornered with my XCc, and when I moved over to a TRc, it was the same. I moved to a DTSwiss 10mm axle, converted my then AC hubs to take it and the howl went away.

    Now have upgraded wheels with CK hubs which also take a 10mm thru axle. I have converted my road bike to DTSwiss RWS skewers too, much better than qr skewers imo.

    Its 25lbs, but needs tubeless conversion with ikon exo 3c. Apparently the version of ikons i was sent are impossible to do tubeless, but i have run the exo3c without tubes with no issue for ages now on american classic rims.

    My frame showed up. Took less then an hour to rebuild it. Previous weight was over 28.5lbs. So I decided to lose some. To my surprise 23.90. Bam shocked!!! It came with an aluminum upper link. But was told I could keep the one on my first frame. So I weighed the carbon linkage vs the aluminum. The carbon is 15 grams lighter.

    Great looking TRC , Kardne, what stem length are you running? Is it 650b or 26 inch wheels?

    Thanks for that, I'd be interested on how that 55mm stem feels, if/when you do it. What fork are running?

    Could you do me a favor and measure your stanchions from the seals to where they meet the crown.
    I lowered my 140 to 130 and I measure 14cm of stanchion. Not sure if it measured 15cm before. I want to make sure that I'm actually lowering my A-C.
    Thanks in advance.

    I have a 32 float 140 on mine and the seal to crown is 15cm. You are lowering your a-to-c.

    Hits to the Lower Link

    Even though I've adjusted to the lower BB and suspension I still hit the lower link on the non-drive side once in awhile. I fixed this initial/early damage by sanding lightly and filling in with epoxy resin (purchased from an auto parts store). Finished with some black nail polish. Since then it's held up well to a few other hits...

    I have the skidplate but it's not a perfect solution as I too have a chip missing from the lower link, the skidplate would need to wrap around slightly to protect this area, it does do a great job of protecting the front triangle though.

    I'm always looking to improve the design. If I add 1/8" to each side, would it there be any chain clearance issues?

    That is a pretty cool idea - first time I've heard of this link/frame protection. Also like Shelter Tape and the Plate from Cytoe (but already spent my budget on the TRc for now so I'm sticking to the epoxy fix and maintenance for the near future.)
