“Blur TRc Custom Build”

The Good: This bike is very stiff when pedalling and is great on the hill climbs, when you turn the trail down it becomes a very stable and agile machine that makes you feel very confident and capable and able to go faster. The suspension platform is great on the climbs with very little "bob" and then comes alive on the descents. The RP23 with kashima coat gives a noticeable difference over the older RP23 shock. I have been running with a 140 fork giving a HA arounbd 67 degress, which does give slight front end wander on steep climbs but nothing that cannot be fixed with good body movement. Currently set up 1x10 whichallows me to get up the majority of climbs and then have all the gears I need for descending and general riding.

The Bad: A slightly higher BB would have been cool but doesnt overly affect the riding that I do.

Overall Review: A stiff, stable, agile, confidence inspiring bike that gives you a grin from ear to ear whether you are going up or down. This bike can be built in many ways to fulfill many roles and would not dissapoint. A truely awesome trail bike.
