Finally finished building up the TR450 for the year. New Decal Kit, Cranks and Pedals. This bike rides like a dream, unreal.

Man, you spent all that time on the flashy decals and still just have a tube for your chainstay guard?? That is pretty NASCAR! Make sure you find a way to throw some 100mph tape on there, too!

Good looking bike, get some velcro pads for the stays!

Really really in love with this bike…but I've been thinking lately that if I spent that much coin on a new rig….would I get a single pivot DH race bike?
We'll see in 2032 when I can afford it.

Im liking those bikes your build is sick but your sticker set up is way too hokey for my liking. You got way to much going on there :lol:

Question about the TR450 - does your rear wheel clear much mud [HTML_REMOVED] crud into the shock/linkage area? I've seen V10's with little fenders on the back to help keep the important bits clean. Was wondering if this is an issue at all? If it is you could probably fashion some sort of fender using an inner tube and zip ties.

I couldn't see how much mud, if any, could get past the upper swing link and onto the shock. When it comes to keeping mud out of where it's not supposed to be, I don't think Transition left any stone unturned. It's actually quite impressive.

Transition has this thing dialed, like WBC said, they didn't leave anything out. Saying that, I live in kelowna, we dont know what mud is, if its not super dusty, we call it muddy. Personally I dont see it being a problem, but really haven't had a chance to give that mud thing a true test. As far as the decal job goes, the cyclepath stickers are new, before that it looked way cleaner, still thinking i might go back to less cyclepath decals. The joys of sticker, easy to replace.
