    Blur TRc pictures

    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

    I decided to try this shadow+, because I wanted to know if I could ride without a chainguard and don't drop my chain.

    My experience after 1 month:

    No, the shadow+ doesn't eliminate dropping the chain from the middle ring totally.
    On really ambitious descends with rocks and roots I've dropped down my chain sooner or later ...

    The shadow+ reduces the oscillation of the chain, that's for sure. My chain is more quiet, less hammering against the chainstays

    My conclusion: the shadow+ is perfect for smooth trails, but for engaged all mountain riding the shadow+ is not enough for me. A chainguide will be the way to go in the future.

    axle to crown is reduced to 520mm, so the travel should be around 135mm I think

    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.

    Do want. Badly.

    Will wait until better colors come out . . . . though that green and black would go nicely with my Special ed. Hopes

    What a great bike, super fun

    Here are some pictures of my Trc. The handling of this bike is off the charts. Super fast and super fun.

    I changed most of my parts over from my XCc - the bar is new and the XX revelation world cup with carbon crown is new. Nice.

    Trying out the Lopes limited edition chain guide. I have been pretty happy with it so far, doesn't drag too much on the climbs. However, these things get noiser with use (I am betting).

    Anyway, loving the bike. The more aggressive you are with it the more it rewards you.

    ^^^ How did you get a Gloss frame? I thought these were only available in Matte carbon?

    High quality pictures William

    I'm thinking to put this chainguide on my TRc.
    Is it a good choice?

    Today I've some moved pictures of my Blur TRc.
    Nothing special, but I hope you could imagine the fun factor of this trailbike

    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.

    Thank you for helping me rationalize owning a TRC while still holding onto my NomadC.

    I think the gloss finish is a result of using heli-tape. I've got a very similar finish on my Blur XCc as a result.

    Maybe he uses a (carbon) polishing wax or something like this, because Matte surfaces are very sensible.
