    Would be great but sadly I'm not in the US, I'm in Guatemala City, Central America. Bike, or at least the frame, would have to be sent out.

    It takes about three weeks.

    Schnell, that's one of the best looking BlurLTc's I've seen... of course, I'm very partial to the bright blue as I have a "seabright blue" Blur LT myself. Very nice!

    Thanks, I also custom painted a Blur TRc but I guess that belongs in another thread.

    xhailofgunfire, nice bike! The gold chain really stands out in a good way. It should look even better with a all black Pike.

    Thanks dude, I think I put my bike on the wrong page, these guys with the custom paint jobs showed me up big time! lol I wish on the Pike, although I have this bike setup a little more for trail riding, I have a Nomad with a Lyrik for heavy duty stuff.

    Is it possible or even advisable to use an adjustable head set on Blur LTC? I would like to slacken head angle just a touch.
    Ive searched and can not find an answer so am posting here in hopes someone has experience they can share.

    I can't imagine why an angleset wouldn't work. Like you, I'd prefer the bike to be a little slacker, so I opted for an offset bushing. Based on a level floor and my buddy's angle measurement tool (not an iPhone app), its now right at 67.5*, but I'd honestly like it at 67 or less. Just my personal preference though. The downside of the bushings imo is changing the shock location slightly and consequently the shock rate as well. I've not detected any unusual suspension performance since installing the offset bushing, but I may be bad enough to not notice any negative impacts. My reservations about anglesets were cost, finicky installation, and potential creaking issues. If I were going with the angleset option, I'd lean towards the Works product. Based on what I've read, the Works angleset largely addresses my concerns other than the expense. Anyway, I think there's plenty of room to lower and slacken the Blur LTc, so I say go for it.

    Sure it is!
    I got a 1.5 Works Components angleset on my Blur LTc and although i still haven't ridden it since the installation, just seating on the bike fells much better and much more like my NomadC
    Just do it and i'm sure you won't regret it.

    The pictures I have isn't the current setup as I have changed several parts such as Hope 8" disc in the front and Hope 7" in the rear plus the tire had been switched from Maxxis CrossMark to Schwalbe Hans Damp Trail Star 2.35 front and rear.

    Great looking ride, how's the suspension action while pedaling on the 30t? Any changes you noticed?

    I am working on a new build on a '13 BLTC and had a couple questions for the group.
    the frame in question is actually featured earlier in this thread.
    This frame has the ISCG tabs, are there any fitment issues with certain chainguides I should be aware of? Could have sworn that I read something about that. I'm considering pulling the LG1+ off my DH bike to try it out but I'd rather run one of the more XC oriented ones or possibly even go to one of the 22/32 front derailleur guides available.

    Can anyone give advice on a short shock setup that works well? I do have a 7.875x2.25 on hand that I have mocked up but not ridden, it seemed to have too much travel. I'm thinking that internally limiting a 8.5x2.5 to something like 8.25x2.25 may be the best compromise? what about shock tune? this is uncharted territory for me. I am looking to get ahold of a 7.875x2.0 small can RP23 for dirt jumping that will be kept high pressure and have another shock for general trail purpose.

    Pics to come, it's basically ready and I am stoked. The goal is a bike that could be pedaled on big XC rides or moto whipped on real dirt jumps with only slight parts tweaks. as much as I hate the term, a "quiver killer."

    Cannot help you on the guide. I use a Bio C-Guide myself to help keep the chain and and reduce slap. Works well. I seem to remember in this thread discussions on guides, so, if you have not done so already, search this thread.

    I am replying mostly because--Why to you want to short shock this frame? Seems you will be limiting yourself. Also, there are other less-travel frames that may work better? Just wondering.

    blur LTC: strong, pretty light, stiff, pedals well, fairly affordable, etc. I am fine with how it rides in stock, ie trail mode if a little steep/tall. but I specifically picked this frame amongst others because while it is a pretty decent XC bike it also can be short shocked into something more like a 4x/slope bike. and it is strong enough to be ridden as such unlike other frames in the same weight range. And then pull 2 bolts and its back to stock if you have 2 shocks. I'm making an attempt to have less bikes, IE one bike that can be made to do a variety of riding pretty well. instead of an AM bike, an XC bike and a DJ it's 1 bike. my fork is a 34 talas. I did PM some people who have posted about it in the past but they did not reply so I am posting in this thread. if nobody knows then I will probably just start playing around with some stuff.

    I ordered a RF 30t narrow/wide, xt chain and cassette and an OneUp 42t cog, how has performed your drivetrain? I have an xt derailleur...

    I am currently running a wolf tooth 42 tooth with a wolf tooth 32t direct mount ring. I am also using a medium cage x9 clutched derailleur. The blur Ltc loves this drive train. The bike seems to climb and descend better. My only regrets are now I need to buy a 34 ring because legs are getting stronger. I have found no need to run a chain retention device.

    Absolutely fine, the bike feels so much better plus it lost quite a bit of weight. Not one dropped chain so far and no drag. Very silent too. You only need to pay attention to your chain length when setting up the new drivetrain.

    A 1x11 system surely is a better option, but for the price difference this is perfectly good.

    Anyone put a Pike on their LTc? The Revelation I have on there is having a tough time keeping up on some of the rougher trails I ride and I kind of impulse-bought a 160 Pike last night to put on mine.... Should get here next week. haha

    That should be REALLY nice!

    Maybe reset the travel down to 150, or 140 if you don't need the high speed stability...just to bring the BB height back down from orbit.

    I stuck an older 36 on mine and shorted it down to 140, but also shorten the rear to 127mm. Got the BB down to ~13 1/4". If I get a set of 27.5 wheels on it, I think I'd have almost a 5010, but w/ a shorter top tube for the given size

    so, its the Dual position Pike, so i can lower it to 130 if need be. i dont know if you can internally modify the Dual position spring down to 150/120... ill give it a go at 160 and see how i like it. if need be, I can just drop it down to 130

    Yes. I'm running it at 160 w/ 25-30% sag and it feels dialed! I bought the Pike slightly used locally (also an impulse buy), figuring I would get the 150 air shaft to install later, but it feels so good at 160 that I see no reason now to reduce the travel.

    Also, FWIW, I felt my BLTc with Pike was a sweeter ride than this Mach 6 I demoed. Probably an unfair fight since it had a Fox 34 Evolution on it, but still... the Pike is keeping the new bike demons away for now.

    awesome. this makes me excited. also, you forget to add a photo of your BLTc + Pike!


    had to buy new headset lower cup, 15mm axle and disc brake adapter to make this new fork work. better be worth it. haha

    I've been running the pike 160 dual position airs on my BLTc. Works really well, 130 setting is good for steep climbs, middle-ish setting fine for most trail riding, and I run it at 160 on steep/fast terrain. I reckon they're an excellent fork - stiff and never feel out of their depth on any terrain.

    thanks! looks good. my Pike is "Out for Delivery" according to USPS so I will have pics of mine tonight once I install it. Hoping for a quick and trouble free install.

And then pull 2 bolts and its back to stock if you have 2 shocks. I'm making an attempt to have less bikes, IE one bike that can be made to do a variety of riding pretty well. instead of an AM bike, an XC bike and a DJ it's 1 bike. my fork is a 34 talas. I did PM some people who have posted about it in the past but they did not reply so I am posting in this thread. if nobody knows then I will probably just start playing around with some stuff.
    Wrote the whole thing up...
    Blur-LTc-Short-shockd Photo Album - Pinkbike

    BTW, made some recent changes...went to a 1x10
    - RF NW 30T
    - OneUp RAD cage
    - Hope 40T cog
    - XT 16T replacement cog for the 15 and 17T cogs.

    Took her out to Trestle yesterday and was highspeeding the green and blue runs w/ it. SO fun! Oh, and the whole time, no dropped chain...this included some baby jumping...nothing bigger than 15 ft long, 3 ft up.

    Also got a Pike for my BLTc
    Got the RC version, as i don't think i would use the RCT3 feature
    I'm coming from a 160mm Float 34 and expect the Blur to come even more alive with a 150mm fork.



    Unfortunately i still haven't had the chance to go for a ride after the Pike was installed, but the fork works amazing in the "parking lot" test.

    What are you guys doing to protect the low hanging pivot? Mine took a direct hit on Saturday
    Also thinking of throwing some innertube on the link area behind the bb to cut down on mud buildup in there.

    I have a kit from Amygos AMYGOS - Blur LT carbone
    If you just want to protect the VPP then you just need this AMYGOS - Protection biellette pour Santa Cruz Blur LT (not sure if the carbon version is any different)

    I used dual lock, a 3M product, and backed it up w/Velcro straps.
    Did you click on that link I posted earlier? You can see how I looks on the BLTc.

    BTW, that dual lock stuff doesn't really need the two velcro straps...it's some stouty stuff! I use it alone on my Jedi to hold the Jedi's Cytoe plate on...

    Just get the surface warm, stick it on, roll out the air bubbles, and done.

    In terms of aesthetics, I think the dual lock without velcro straps would work better. That's great advice - thanks for that.

    Does the plate act as a mudguard for the bottom part of the linkage? Seems to be a bit of a mud magnet down there...

    Here's mine - running XT drivetrain, RS pikes, reverb post and Stans Flows on American Classic hubs.

    Got 60mm stem on there at the moment - think that's the right length.

    Hi everyone - so I have a stupid question that I absolutely cannot locate the answer to. SC's site no longer has any info about the LTc, and I'm getting different answers from both the bike seller and Joe at SC Tech Dept.

    I'm currently shopping a 2013 SC BLTc, and can't figure out the rear axle setup. Did the frames come with a 12x142? 12x135? 10x135? Also, for the rear....does SC use a thru-axle or thru-bolt?

    Thanks!

    13' Should have the 12x142 dt swiss rws thru axle. If not actually a 13 then it will have a quick release 135.

    I bet it is a 12x142 since it is a 2013 (but do not hold me to that). I do not think they ever had a 12x135. Do you need to know before you buy? Even if you get one with a 10x135, you can always use a thru-bolt or bolt-on with the correct hub. That is what I do.

    Oh, and the 12x142 comes with its own bolt (or should). The 10x135 will be whatever hub you have--QR, thru-bolt, bolt-on.

    Thank god I spotted this in the ad pictures. He had the bike listed as a 2013 Blur LTc, but I asked for pics of the rear axle setup. Sure enough, the frame has standard dropouts and he was running one of those 5mm skewer QR's. Total fail.

    Thanks a lot for your help guys, I relied on your knowledge as the basis for challenging him. Hope someone else doesn't get ripped off for $3500 and then find that little surprise.

    Blur LT Carbon Setup Thread

    Anyone had 650b fork on their Bltc and still running 26" wheels? Would be great to hear what it's like as I won't have a new frame for a few weeks and pikes are getting cheaper! ( would be the 160mm pike but lowered to 150 ) currently running a 36 float at 150mm with a 1.5 degree minus Angleset

    You know, the qr dropout frames are really pretty stiff too when you run a bolt on wheel. Yes there is a small weight penalty and pulling the wheel takes slightly longer. But they don't command a premium like the thru axle frames do.

    Since you've dug this up here's how my BLTc currently is. Got her an Inline a few months ago.
    Still love to take her for a ride sometimes.

    How did the 36 perform w/ the angleset? I've shorten mine to 140 and have a -2* Works headset but haven't had time on the bike yet...friggin' Colorado is turning into Oregon w/ the damn rains!
    I stuck on a pair of Conti TK 2.4s...they're like only 1/4" short of a 27.5 HR2 2.3s in diameter.

    Can anyone illustrate how to tell the difference? I'm looking at a used one, and the seller says it's a 2013 but after reading this post I've done about an hour of research and it looks like the bike may not have the new style through axle.

    How about asking the seller directly? They will be noted as either 135x10 Or 142x12 qr and thru axle respectively.
    Qr dropouts are a slot that is vertical on the frame and the rear axle is part of the wheel and slides into them vertically. On a thru axle the dropout appears as a round hole in the frame, the wheel has the same thru hole and the axle slides through all.

    The 2013 models have the 142x12 axles. All earlier models had the 135x10 axle. I don't think this was a mid-year change.

    I've got a black xl BLTc nearly brand new that I'm looking to sell, if anyone's interested.

    I did, and he said 2013 but looking at photos it looks to be 2012 judging by extensive google research

    Just a quick question...
    I found some cracks around my main pivots on the main triangle and the rear triangle. It's under the 5-year warranty still. Has anyone had their BLTc warrantied and what has SC been offering for replacement? TIA.

    My BLTc has had both front and rear replaced under warranty. The front was for cracks like you have described while the rear was for a true failure near the attachment to the upper pivot on the non-drive side. This was in 2012 and in 2013, though, so I can't help with what SC is doing these days. I doubt they have BLTc frame parts still but I would be really interested to hear what you find out.

    Myself and a good friend have had this happen to our 26" santa cruz bikes.
    They don't have any 26" stuff left.
    You have to take a Bronson instead of a blur.
    So you either have to run 26" parts on it, get 650b parts, or sell the replacement frame and try and buy something else.
    Aaanndd, the shock from the Blur is not the same size on the Bronson. And Santa Cruz doesn't give you a new shock for the frame replacement

    Yup, thanks. Understand all the drawbacks, not too worried there. I also have a Tallboy LTc which means one of my 3 shocks from the TBLTc can go on the Bronson. I also have a set of 650b wheels on hand for my DH rig. Unmount and relacing wheels is not an issue either.

    So, is the general path for this warranty a Bronson?

    So, is the general path for this warranty a Bronson?
    I had a TRC they offered me a solo. My friend had a blur lt they offered him a bronson.
    Obviously a bronson is the closest current bike to a blur lt.
    I don't know if they will let you pay extra and go in a different direction, like get a nomad or a furtado or something.

    Call them up and get the ball rolling

    It happened to my Blur XC last summer. I was told to take my pick of current frame offerings. You may have your choice. Or, wait a month and see what new colors or revisions come out.

    HEY, I like the sound of that!

    Just out of curiosity, what did you pick?

    Since I had the 650b wheels from my Blur, I went with a 5010. I wanted a Bronson but my typical trails are better suited to a Tallboy, and since my bike budget doesn't allow for both, I went in the middle. I noticed the ring crack just before I went on vacation for a couple weeks. In that time, they released the new colors and when I finally called SC, I was able to get the 2015 Black and white frame. The only down fall was that I had to get a new shock and fork which cost about what most people spend on a complete bike.

    When hoping for a smooth warranty claim (with any company) make sure there is always something in the background of your pictures from the same company. It won't hurt if they see your TBLT and any other SC bikes in the background.

    You see how clean that pivot on the rear triangle is. The bike has some miles, but NOTHING like my Tallboy LTc! It's a MK1 BLTc, the one w/ a symmetrical main link and 135mm rear spacing. I didn't mistreat the bike...it's covered in clear bra stuff, and looks brand spankin new! It wasn't ever hucked beyond 3 ft...

    BTW, SC customer service ROCKS! I did get it warrantied...got me a large powdered blue/fuschia Nomad coming! I wanted a lighter color so I can ID cracks better.

    THANK YOU WILLIE B! YOU DA MAN!

    So, you got a Nomad 3 as a replacement? If so.... CONGRATS!!

    I think it's time for me to make a claim for my BLTc (has a very small crack on the lower pivot front triangle, just like yours) and try to get a Solo, as i already have the N3

    Yeah, was told by the shop I sent my pics and receipt to the N3 will be what I'm getting.

    Hey BTTR, what fork and shock are you running on your N3? I'm looking at the Metric and possibly the Float X2 when it's released. That warranty frame won't come w/ a shock...typically they don't anyway.

    i have the same BLTc as Paul11ie and no cracks on mine that I can see and I ride mine pretty hard. regularly hit lots of rocks and 4-5 foot drops.
    I have worn off all the paint down near the pivot on my main triangle. I had issues with dropping the chain a while back, and getting stuck between the small ring and frame. and getting the chain out just wrecked the paint down there. It looks really bad, but i see no cracks.....

    Cool

    I have a Pike and up until recently had a CCDB Air Cs which i liked, but decided to try a CC Coil and was blown away with the improvement.
    Sometimes i think about trying a new Fox 36 up front, but for the time being the Pike has been fine.

    So, the X-Fusion Metric never made it on your radar for a fork?

    Nope, never. I don't even know why.
    But considering that weight range i think i would rather go with the Marzocchi 350 NCR Ti

    To those guys who have had a Bronson as a replacement; did you get a new shock?
    I've been offered a bronson but no shock, and the old one (from the LTc) won't fit. I'm not dealing with SC direct YET (european).

    Sorry if I wasn't clear; did SC supply a new shock with the replacement frame?
