    Yup I weighed it, and with a very precise scale (well, it's very accurate when i hang dumbells from it). The wheels are tubeless, perhaps that helps. Oh, and it's 18kg on the nose, which is actually 39.6 pounds. Pardon me Also, the pedals are really light, as is the saddle. Having now looked at the weights of some of the lighter-spec'ed bikes here (my cranks and fork are heavy), I wonder if maybe my scale has some issues at the 18kg mark. Personally, i can't say I really care much about the weight, though....

    Bpatterson, you're around Denver, right? How do you like the Wicked Wills for the local shuttle terrain?

    i am wondering how the 450 rides in comparison to the blindside (setup with a 200mm fork etc) ?
    has anyone ridden both and can share their experience?

    i havent had the blindside for long (half a year maybe). back when i bought it i thought i want a bikepark rig that can also do uphill decently. but i got my covert for all mountain stuff now and im kind of considering getting a true downhill bike maybe by the end of the year or next season.
    but im curious if its rly worth it or if i should just wait until its time to replace the blindside due to its inevitable decay.

    I just got my bike and it's the V 2.5 It will now accept the angle set. That's the difference between the V2.0 and the V2.5 Everything else is the same from what I have been told.

    Color code for red V1

    Hey I just bought a used V1 TR and it's got a bunch of nicks on the frame. I was wondering if anyone knows the red color code so I could drop by the hardware store to buy touch-up paint.

    Thanks.

    First true DH bike

    Went from this (2008-2011):


    To this:
















    By the end of next week: Nukeproof 250lb ti spring (stock steel spring is 350lbs, getting pretty much no sag because I'm 125lbs after a meal), short-cage derailleur (medium cage's on there just to get the thing ridable), and Muddy Mary 2.5 DH and tubeless conversion (Ardent 2.4 3C will be the back-ups).

    Down the line: Hadley/Hope Pro II laced to ZTR Flows (Hadley rear hub was on backorder, I've already got the Flows and DT double-butted spokes), I may entertain the idea of a Vivid Air and swapping out the coil spring for an air cartridge on the Boxxer.

    At this point, I just want a properly rated rear spring so I can go out and get this thang dirty.

    Looks sick. Minus the baby blue grips of course.

    I actually like them. FWIW, when they were purchased the black version were out of stock and both colors of the Twisted Waffles (the grips I originally wanted) were out as well.

    It's pretty cool that it's kinda hard to tell that the frame, brakes, and fork are used (all three are 1 season old).

    Someone could give me some advice about sizing...

    At the moment I have a tr450 2010 in medium size (I'm 6.1 tall for 180 lb with long arm and leg) but I'm thinking if a large size could fit better for me, my trail are not so fast but I'd like to know if between medium and large there's a lot of difference (in the shop large size is not available and so before thinking about I'd like to understand something more)

    regards

    Henry

    2011 TR450 - Refinements

    Any one have photos they could share of the new rear axle system and headtube design used on the latest 2011 TR450. I understand there is no more pinch bolt, a reverse thread nut, and a headtube to allow for a wider array of headsets...

    Thanks

    Thanks In the Trees,

    I have a frame on order, getting ideas on what I'll soon be building. Any suggestion on Cane Creek vs. FSA for headset choices??? Fork will have an 1"1/8 not tapered steerer...
