    Just setting up my new TR450 now. I'm at 87kg/192lbs and I'm deciding between a 400lb spring with 180psi in the RC4 and a 450lb running about 150psi. The softer spring feels super supple, but the bike wallows a bit in hard g-out corners. Could probably correct with more LSC but need more time to sort it out. The harder spring feels good for corners and jumps but doesn't track as well. Guess just more experimentation is needed.

    Don't you blow through travel super fast on a 450lb spring? I'm 71kg/156lb with helmet, clothed, pack, etc and run a 400lb spring. Granted I reckon a 375lb would be closer to what I need, but at 87kg I would have thought you'd be bottoming it all day long?

    Weird thing is, I'm back running the 400 again at the moment. Gets the right sag and lets the HSC do its work. How much sag are you getting on a 400 if you're only 71kg?

    I weigh the exact same as you do, and eventually went with the 450lb spring and 150 psi, and I prefer it because it seemed a little wallowly in the mid-stroke with the 400lb. I'm getting ~33% sag with only a few turns of preload, which is generally my preference - versus a ton of preload. Seems to have more pop and I can still man-smash it through the chunder. All that said, given that the RC4 seems like a "progressive" shock (i.e. I have the bottom out adjustment all the way out), I've been thinking real hard about a CCDB.

    Here's a link to an article that has a couple photos of a rode-hard-and-hung-up-wet TR450 with worn away Transition stickers. Pretty awesome.

    Yep, I've been trying the 450 with about 150psi in the reservoir as well. I'm back on the 400 running 180psi, but I increased the HSC to about 9 clicks out of 12 which stops the bike "wallowing" in corners as much. I'll do some back-to-back runs with both setups and decide which works best I think. Just waiting till I'm out at a track that provides a bit of everything so I can try it out. The spring calculators on the web all provide different recommendations.

    Fox - 350
    TF Tuned - 360 - 380

    To add to this can anyone outline the upgrades from 1 to 2 and from 2 to 3? Any help appreciated dudes.

    I might be wrong but - I think from 1 to 2 they got lighter, 2 to 2.5 the got new HT (?), 2 to 3 they got CS adjustability & 0.25" longer front end. In 2013 they get Enduro Max-E bearings and different HT bearing spec

    My TR450 made it through ~30 days in the whistler bike park without needing any maintenance at all (to the frame itself, wheels and drivetrain are a different story). I was pretty psyched on the abuse this bike took and it just kept coming back and asking for more.

    Sweet rig fella
    Did you go for build option two and just swap out the build option bars and shock for the CCDB and Renthals at extra cost or was it a complete frame up build?
    I ask because most of your spec is per the build two option.
    Sorry if it seems like a dumd a** question, but I'm currently in the process of researching all DH bike options.

    I bought a cheap $10 fender and trimmed it myself to fit the tr450.

    I think I might be joining the club with a 2013 frame guys. Going to build it ground up. Very nice looking sleds on here ! ... how is that CCDB holding up? Im assuming its not a problem to run one on these frames?

    Hey Transition folks,

    Do the new TR450s come with a replaceable dropout, or do you know if they will fit a 650b wheel?
    I emailed them, and am waiting to hear back, and I can't tell from all the photos I've seen about the rear dropouts.

    Thanks

    BTW, The guys over at Airborne seem a bit defensive when one mentions that their new bike looks like a TR 450.
