Holy crap raw looks good, sick build! How do you choose between the two De Vincis and this? o_O

I still have the dixon for xc/am stuff, but i decided to go with the tr250 over the wilson because it's a more fun bike and just as capable; had I been serious about racing the wilson would have won, but when it comes to a good riding day with my friends, it's the tr250.

Ah, good choice! Boring to see everyone switching to dh bikes, I wanted something playful as well though. Prefer to have fun track days instead of being faster in races. Its my only bike as well so a full DH rig would've been a bit too much.
Any idea of the weight? Mine is 17,4kg at its current state planning on putting it on a diet until spring though, target weight is sub 17 :p

It's 36.3lbs, so 16.47kg, the tubeless wheelset was a big weight savings.

WTH? o_O That must be with out pedals though? Still 17,1 vs 16,47 :/ Can't see what's bringing up the weight on mine as I'm also running tubeless. Well, I'll try to put it on a some kind of diet this winter.

Nope that's with pedals, What kind of tires are you running?

that so sick man. how do you like it compared to the wilson?
(Dec 10, 2012 at 16:59)
Its allot more playful. It corners exceptionally and I am in the middle wheelbase setting so I could still have it shorter and snappier. I was however most surprised at how well it is in the rough technical stuff, I thought it would struggle in comparison to the wilson but it feels completely stable. I haven't had a chance to get the wheels off the ground yet but I could only imagine that is where it will really shine. Considering I have done next to no adjustments or real time on the bike it will only get better, can't wait to try it out in the bike park!
