    It is actually dull. The fluorescent lights from my workbench are behind me and casting a glare.

    Now, can I interest you in a large Blur LTc?

    This exact same frame is up for sale again under a different account and different location in CA. Same wording, same photo. Scam? Frame didn't sell and Masemoto selling under different user account? Something seems odd.

    Yup. The TRc frame sold so this guy is borrowing my listing info.
    However the Blur LTc one didn't sell so that one may get reposted. Weighing my options.

    So the buy bought it and is reselling it, or it's a total scam in every regard?

    The frame I sold was shipped to FL and then I think forwarded out of the country.
    This guy is probably too lazy to make his own listing, saw that mine sold as presented and so copied it for his own.

    It makes me sick that you can get a new TRc in this sale for $1500, that's just under 1000.

    At the moment the cheapest you can get a 2012 TRc on sale in the UK is 1800, when I saw they'd been reduced from the usual 2700 I was excited, now I just feel sick!

    Edit: I made this post before reading the thread - lol seems I'm not the only one keyboard raging

    Currently only if you want Small or Extra Large. They have been appearing on ebay with some regularity, or you could track down someone in the US/Canada willing to facilitate a transaction.

    You guys have to keep in mind the name of the sale... Parking Lot Sale. Basically a garage sale. From what I hear their non-internet Parking Lot Sale in the past had much bigger discounts.

    Just received my frames and are very excited. However, there are a couple of questions I'd like to ask you all.

    First off, the paint around one of the Heckler's pivots is peeling off a little. Will this lead to additional paint peeling off or is it just cosmetic?

    Second, the Nickel's bottom bracket has some rust-colored marking. I couldn't rub it off. Should I worry about this?

    Lastly, the Nickel's rear dropout has some paint peeling off also. Anything to worry about it?

    Sorry for all the questions. This will be my first time building a bike for myself and one for my gf. Thanks all.

    It's a mountain bike, it's going to get a lot worse when you start using it. Buy some touch up paint if anything and try steel wool for the rust spots. Well that's what I would do. Mine won't be a trailer queen.

    Shoot Santa Cruz an email with the same pics and questions you posted here.

    Oh and check your PM box. Sent you a message.

    Sneaky, my $.02, I wouldn't worry about that stuff.

    SC uses powder coat which is tough, but can be brittle. Sometimes it chips in areas near pinch bolts, etc. The rust stuff, no idea what it is, but its on the inside of the bb shell, you'll never see it once the BB is in. When Alum rusts, its white, not red like steel.

    Thank you both for the response. I was leaning more to forgetting about it, but wanted to check first. Can't wait until these bikes are finished, especially with my gf recovering from her injury.

    All good info. Now I won't freak either when my butcher gets here in a few days if it has a few tweaks out of the shipping crate...

    That rust like stuff is probably dry oil of some kind, left over from the manufacturing process. I see it on new guns all the time. Sometimes it comes off and sometimes it doesn't.

    When I pulled my bearings for the 1st time, there was a similar amount of rust. It came sparkling clean with some steel wool.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I know the feeling.
    Curious what size you ordered ? If it's an xl, they must've had a few in stock !

    Another wallet emptied. Medium chocolate butcher on the way!!

    I am a bit concerned about sizing, I'm 5'10" with pretty even proportions. I rode a medium 2005 Heckler with a 50mm stem for about 2yrs and loved it, and the TT lengths are the same on both bikes, so maybe I am just being paranoid.
