Medium Santa Cruz Blur TR Carbon with 27.5/650b wheels for swap or sale
2012 Blur TRc 5 inch travel medium frame with 27.5 wheels in great shape. The TRc frame, with low bb with 26" wheels and excellent clearance for bigger tires, is known to be a perfect candidate for 27.5 conversion (do a Google search). Geometry on my medium is virtually the same as Santa Cruz's current 5010 model, with the same angles and bottom bracket sitting at 13.25 or so. The rear tire (2.25 Schwalbe Racing Ralph Snakeskin) fits fine with no need for shimming the shock.
Component package includes de-stickered Arch EX rims on DT240 hubs (15mm front, 10mm DT thru bolt rear), Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.35 Snakeskin front and aforementioned Ra Ra rear, both set up tubeless with Stans tape and valves, near new SID RTC3 120mm 27.5 fork with black stanchions, Noir carbon crankset with 22-32-bashguard rings, 9 speed X9 drivetrain, Thomson stem and seat post, Haven carbon bar, ODI Rogue lock on grips, Avid Elixir 9 brakes with 180/160 rotors, Fox RP23 Kashima shock, and after-market plastic guard for frame and linkage. Nice stuff throughout. Pedals and water bottle cage not included, but I will throw in the SC grease gun for frame linkage grease fittings and a couple of lightly used 2.25X27.5 Schwalbe Nic tires.
I'm only thinking about getting rid of it because I have a couple of 29ers and find it hard to switch back and forth. with this bike. I'd be interested in a swap for an equivalent short travel full suspension medium 29er, or perhaps a
quality fat bike. Or I'd sell for $2500 firm, a screaming deal for a carbon frame and components of this caliber. No low ball offers please. Email me at alanrtinti at cox dot net if interested. I'm located in central CT.
