Cant find a thread with TRc pictures, so I'll start on off with my build.. Sneeks in at 24.95lbs.. first ride in the Rocky Peak district England and its one Rocket of a bike.. never felt under travelled
The Chainset btw, is XTR M970, then I turned down a worn out outer ring to make it into a bash, the ceramic coated at Shawnee bike coating
My Large TRc... 22.9 pounds in it's current form. No dropped chain with my Shadow+, but I'm sure the XCX guide (1x10) is helping with that, and it's definitely quiet. I only have crappy iPhone pics at the moment, but it'll give ya the idea!
For anyone that's curious about the lighter build, I also have a Nomad, so the TRc really is my XC/Trail rig although it's taken everything I've thrown at it so far.
Oh I forgot to mention I upgraded my XX brakes to 2012 models. The new ones are very smooth to use, I am very impressed so far. The smoothness adds to the already excellent modulation.
So far so good with the chain guide, the test will be how it goes over time I guess.
Hey great video zauberer. It shows some really good high speed sections, nice. I will be planning a trip to Switzerland, and I loved that footage you had there - some similarities to what I expect it will be like, I saw the cable car in the background in one spot. Good work mate.
