Feeling confident because the Walsh boys took my deposit and posted a pic of the start of a 250r frame.  This will be a purpose built XC width 250r from Walsh.  There will be some use of the TRX450 components like 04/5 spindles, 450 F/R brakes, 450 rear pedal and rezzy, 450 axle carrier and axle, and hopefully 450 standard peg mounts (fingers crossed).  The frame should be coming together this month and hopefully in my hands not to long after....

Starting Point:
Frame - WALSH xc Narrow cr500 link
Swinger - WALSH cr500 link trx450 carrier
Stem - Walsh sr +1h and 3/4f
Arms - Walsh +2.5 XC sr series for 04/05 trx450r spindles
Engine - Duncan 275

The trx450er rear master.  Tried to talk them into a CRF450 linkage but it was gonna require way too many changes to make it work.  So sticking with the trusy cr500 linkage.

Funny Walsh talked a bunch of shit on 250R's not to long ago saying how out dated the geometry and entire machine was... Not to mention they weren't interested in building any 250R frames they were focusing on their new "Hybrid" quads cause that's the future...Guess your money was green enough for them to look over that stuff. Goodluck but I personally wouldn't purchase anything from a company that has no interest in our community.

I'd personally like to see where Nate or Mike talked shit about these bikes. These bikes are what made the Walsh name.

Of all the big names they were the only one who was willing to update the old platform.  I doubt anything would hold a candle to the Walsh hybrid and I think that would be the context of they were saying the R geo is outdated.

It's gonna end up around 47ish running 4:1 wheels.  Doing narrow frame with +2.5 arms running 2005 trx450 spindles.
