You can set the 250 really slack, but its still lighter/more playful than the 450. The mech and CoC had his set up like that and it was dope.

can't you adjust the travel in a Boxxer down to 7"... or am I talking out of my ass?

Internally you can, but there's no point. A Boxxer on front of a slack 250 is mint with the stock height.

Yep. Same AC height as a 180mm single crown e.g. the Totem or 66. Having 200mm up front doesnt hurt either Razz

so when you change the travel on a Boxxer it actually pulls it down. In the 40's you switch those spacers around and it just changes the bottom out and keeps the same axle to crown.

TR250 as of August 8th 2011

I don't understand the Boxxer on TR250 thing. Why not get a TR450?
Anyone?

30.5lbs.... f*ck ME THAT'S LIGHT! And nothing on that bike looks sketchy except for the cranks!
no way it could be 30.5 lbs,
the syndicates FULL CARBON is 34.38 lbs.
full carbon V10 holmes dropped 300g with the carbon swingarm diet and 300g more witha thinner lighter front triangle. shits danky.


thats one of the lightst builds posible. dont get me wrong im not hating on that build or the bike. i ride on myself all iam saying is 30.5 lbs seems a bit far fetched Blank Stare

It's lighter than that. Also, that Syndicate bike is an extra large, this is a medium. The wheels are lighter, the cranks are lighter, the whole cockpit is lighter, the tires are lighter, the seat and seat post are lighter, the shock is lighter, the brakes and rotors are lighter, the pedals are lighter, so on and so on.

i agree here, that syndicate bike could be made lighter than 34.38

But the syndicate has allot of a more solid bike build than Christiaans V10c,don't get me wrong but that bike wouldn''t last long if Minnaar or Peaty wrap their legs arround Christiaans bike to take it for a spin.I love that V10c of Christiaan no matter what but how ever amazing weight.

sorry guys, but i think markcahill is right. There is a half to 3/4 pound in the shock... but there isn't a clear 4lbs especially with an alum rear swing arm.

I now politely ask everyone to shut the front door

yeah i cant see how you can drop roughly 4 lbs by things such as break rotors etc. remember the fact that its a carbon rear end. im sure the syndicate could drop that weight even further but not to 30ish lbs
