    Blur clasic ?

    I just built up a Blur clasic for a friend and I have never own a VPP bike so I need some help. I was wondering if someone could tell me what the proper sag amount is to get the bike in the "VPP sweat spot" that would be great.
    Thanks John

    What shock

    Hello there,
    Most rear shocks are reccomened to have a 15mm amount of Sag. for new frames you can use the official SantaCruz website. for older frames you get go to :
    Santa Cruz Model, Photos, Setup & Geometry Database
    it takes some time and patients but everybody (even me :-) seems to get it after a while

    Its a POS leaky 5th Element shock. The frame is brand new but she got a deal on it because it came with a used leaky shock. She weighs no more than 115 pounds so I hope the shock will hold enough air for her.

    Santa Cruz is doing closeouts of old stock shocks for $99.

    I don't know if this one fits on a Blur classic, but it might be worth a shot:

    I Have a similar question:

    What to you think about the difference between the classic and the LT?
    Has the Blur Classic the same geometry like the new Blur LT?

    My LBS offers me an Blur Classic (XL) in white and an Blur LT (L) in Liquid Blue. Both sizes would be ok for me, i prefer white before blue, but blue would be well too.

    Thanks!

    For the classic, 10-15mm of sag measured at the shock.
