    Can't go any bigger than XL with the blur!
    I've already dropped the stem height 10mm after that pic and it'll be going lower for sure. As I ordered online I got them to leave heaps of length on the steerer tube, just in case (as I saw on the geometry specs the headtube is shorter than my LT1). Long arms & legs are my reasons for the long post & stem. I did consider going for a shorter stem, but the 120mm is what's recommended by various fit calculators & it's what I've been comfortable with on my previous blurs. I like hill climbing so the long stem fits in with that too.

    That makes sense. Online fit calculators made the same 120mm recommendation for me. But then I tried a much shorter stem and loved it. I do a lot of steep climbing, and have no issues once I adapted my position. I think it's worth at least trying a cheap short stem if you haven't already.

    +1

    Short stems and the smaller cockpit they provide have no effect on my climbing but enhance downhill and general bike feel immensely. As an old school XC race guy it took a while to make the transition but my XC race bike even has a short stem (and wide bars) now.

    I was on an xl heckler and tried the short stem thing. I felt it to be too cramped for the climbing and settled on a mid length at 90mm. I have found it to be a good trade off. That same stem will be going on an xl blur ltc as soon as it arrives. It's definitely worth the time to buy a cheap stem and try some different riding positions, but no sense in caving to trends if you have something that works for you.

    Hey Max, did you find a fix for the chain rub on front mech? I'm going with the same drivetrain setup. One more question, did you go with a long or medium cage RD? I'm thinking the medium is the way to go but worried the chain growth on VPP could be a problem for the RD capacity.

    Thanks in advance.

The front mech is an XTR direct mount, for use with the double rings (as specified by the Shimano agent). When pedalling in the 38T ring and any of the four biggest rear sprockets, the chain will hit the top inside of the mech cage (or the cable anchor arm) partway through the suspension travel. In the 36T sprocket I estimated this to be round about 60-65% travel, by measuring eye to eye distances with the shock free, at normal sag and at the point when the chain fouled the mech. The problem is less as I change up through the gears, but still exists. The front mech is adjusted correctly. Moving it up improves the situation but compromises shifting performace and chain security, and is clearly not the answer. Has anyone else encountered this? It bugs the hell out of me because it effectively means I can't use the big ring on lower speed, technical riding where I might find myself pedalling while the suspension is working more than a little bit.

    Lahrs,
    I've mated a X0 DM tall 2x10 frt mech to a 22/34T rings and 11-34 9spd stack and have not had rubbing issues. You just cannot sit the front mech right above the rings. There's a little hump on the inner derail plate that HAS to be above the chain while on the ring (34T). Once you have that, use the frt mech's throw limiting screws and cable tension/slack to adjust out the throw range. On a X0 trigger, I give the barrel adjstr 32 dedents of slack. Once the cbl is in the front mech and pulled tight, give the 32 dedents back to the cbl as slack and the whole thing will just fall into place.
    I know you're using XTR, but give this method a try. Good luck.

    You did a great job on cable routing and putting on nice frame protection. I'm also glad to see I am not the only one with a Reverb on the LTC that goes all the way in, as if my frame is too large. I'll post a shot of my Steel Blue LTC when it isn't literally covered in mud. You can barely tell the color of mine.

    BLTc in action

    ...I really think this bike can handle a 160mm 36 Float! As it is w/ a 150mm Float, it's a great XC bike. I lost it over the front of the bike in the rocks, where I feel if I had a 36, I could have rolled over that same section.

    Pa11y, how do you like your Answer ProTaper Carbon bars? Been wanting longer carbon bars, and considering the ProTaper as well as the lighter Easton Haven's & the wider Race Face SixC.

    1st ride on them and I didn't notice anything outstanding bout them. This is a good thing! No flex, angle was fine, not too wide (I have a set of 745 Sunline V1s on my Nomad, and they're a bit too wide). It's mated to a 95mm x 10 degrees stem. As it sits, the bar level to saddle is dead even. I'm sitting on a 90mm x 5 degree AM stem that I'll put on to try later. It's white
    I may change the V1 to the Answer...need to try rotating the bar first. But that tiny extra bit of width creates a pressure spot in my wrists that gets a bit irritating on longer rides.

    Chainring / grease fitting guard

    Just putting the finishing touches on a new Blur LTc build and was wondering if anyone was using a chainring guard. Seems it would protect the grease fittings and keep the chain from popping off and damaging the frame. Looking at the XCG from MRP. http://www.mrpbike.com/buy.php?secti...roduct=2660671

    Check page 10 of this thread. I used a roller type to deal w/ chain management. And, on my maiden ride, the boomerang took a hit since it's not the lowest point off the BB. I'm perfectly OK w/ that, so long as it's not those grease ports

    Some have reported that the Blackspire Stinger BB mount can move and/or bend when it's hit, and cause major issues, trapping your chain, etc... How flimsy is the boomerang? And how loud is it?

    Seems like the bash guard may be a bad idea on the LTc. From what I have read on this thread they have come loose and done more damage than good. I don't care to run a roller type so I may just do without.

    I agree. Got my damage that way.... But... in lieu of a big chainring a nice bolted bashguard is pretty nice.

    Just noticed that MRP is coming out with a new version shortly. 40T. Going to wait to see what this design looks like.

    Coming to this late, but can you tell me the difference between this bike and the SL? I've been on a SL for 8 years, but am starting to feel the need for a bit plusher ride. Thanks.

    What's the deal on the 15mm thru axle Reynolds wheels? Is that the new ones or did you re-lace?

    Not a relace. Chainlove had these "Reynolds MTN-C Special" on deal for $575. It came w/ the 15mm TA end caps. Contacted Reynolds and they said the "Specials" w/ the white hubs were capable of being converted, but the later black hubs weren't.
    Those endcaps were identical to DMR Revolver 20mm to 15mm adapter except they're red on the Revolver. From the shape of the hub body, I think they're pretty close to the I9s also. The rear hub looks a whole lot like the Hope Pro 2s, altho I don't know that Pro 2's were ever mfg'd w/ 24h drilling.
    I may relace these wheels w/ DT Competition spokes to gain some meat on the spokes. I'll just need to figure out what the nipple situation is...maybe the Hex ProLocs?

    May have a solution to protect those low-hanging carbon pivots: Race Face SixC rubber boots for their crank arms. Found/ordered some from BikeBling. I'll update this post when/if I'm able to get it put on the bike.

    There are some concerns on here of it moving and slamming into your stays, causing more damage than it prevents. Mine hasn't moved so I can't speak to that. It is low! I've already touched the tip on a rock. What I am a bit concerned about is if the arm bends from one of those touches.
    What I have noticed is it acts a bit like a rock shield. The leading side on mine is getting all sorts of dings. This is a GOOD thing! I wonder if it'd be worth my while to mount just an arm on the other side to do the same thing?
    I'm still waiting on the rubber crank boot to try and mount on the lowest pivot. I think I can be mounted around the axle (needs disassembly) as they come w/ pedal holes on both sides.

    New plastic blur for me

    hasn't been ridden yet, I was surprised by its weight at 25.08lbs (complete)
    will use for XC racing, 24hr solos and general lots of fun bike

    I chose the LTC over the XCC because I used to have an Alloy LT2 and basically I missed it (even though I had an Alloy BXC and Nomad).

    Paint Chips

    Just got my white LTc from Competitive Cyclist and noticed a paint chip and was wondering what everyone is using to touch up your bikes. Granted it is built to be ridden but I would like to touch up these areas as they happen. I am currently installing protective film to help prevent this in the future.

    Ha! I just read this a day too late!

    The exact same thing has happened with my Stinger - see photo. I don't even remember hitting it on anything, but the result is that the boomerang has taken a square edged gouge out of the chainstay in front of the metal protector - maybe 2mm x 3mm (5/64 x 1/8). I emailed the SCB importer here in NZ today to see what he recommends I do about it.

    If I have to junk the swingarm I'll be well and truly bummed :O(

    HI guys,

    need some help and am sure You know the answer since the question is rather basic.

    I have a Blur Ltc and need a headset - can't get any Cane Creek 110 here in Europe so I decided to get Chris King. I plan to ride a tapered fork so it seems to me that Chris King Inset 3 (i3) is the way to go.

    What troubles me is that specs of both CK and CC say that ID of the lower headtube should be 49.57-49.61.mm but on my bike the bottom tube's ID is 49mm exactly? I presume that is quite normal but I need to get that confirmed before buying the headset.

    thanks

    Did you mic it or just took a ruler up to the head tube?
