    You can use the stops and cut the cable housing, or you could also use these little guys:
    Universal Cycles -- Sram PitStop Rotating Dual-Line Hooks


    If you have a front derailleur cable going through the other stops, just clip those to the housing.

    My aluminum frame cracked, so I had Santa Cruz upgrade me for a few bucks to the Blur LTc. Just got it back from the shop today, and I'll be hitting the trails tomorrow. Setup as pictured is 28 lbs. 10 oz., weighed on the shop scale. Not too bad considering the dropper post and some meaty 2.4" Purgatory carcasses on there.

    Specs:
    Frame: 2012 Blur LTc Medium, Matte Carbon and Silver
    Fork: Revelation RL Solo Air 150mm
    Shock: Fox RP23 Kashima
    Drive Train: Shimano XT 2x10
    Wheelset: Shimano XTR Trail
    Tires: Specialized Purgatory 2.4
    Brakes: Shimano XT
    Seatpost: KS LEV 100mm 30.9
    Saddle: WTB Volt Race
    Stem: 80mm Easton Haven
    Bars: 711mm Easton Haven
    Grips: ODI Ruffian
    Pedals: Shimano XT Trail



    Gotta love the clutch mech:


    Due to the strange cable stops for the dropper post routing, I made some cuts in the housing for the KS LEV. Came out pretty clean!

    Hello all, I am hoping you guys can give me some information on sizing. I have a 2012 blur lt carbon sitting here in front of me, it was to be my wive's new trail bike but due to some circumstances it's going to be either sell it or built it up for myself. I am 5'6" and I do prefer smaller bikes but was wondering if this would be too small.

    Medium would fit, but you're right on the edge of small/medium. If you prefer smaller frames, go with the small size.

    Sucks to see the Blur LTC drop out of the Santa Cruz lineup. I'll be enjoying mine for many years to come if it holds up. Right now I don't have any desire for bigger wheels but a short shocked 650B conversion might be a nice option in the future.

    I've been through the 650b conversion experiments, and once the dust settled, the LTc with 26" wheels is by far the best trail bike I've ever ridden. I see no reason to change anything. I admit I was a bit shocked to see it dropped, but understandable from SC perspective. We're officially retro-grouches!

    Actually brain fart -I'm 5 ft 8.5 but found a medium blur lt too be too short in the top tube with a 65mm 5 deg stem and sketchy with an 80 mm 5 deg hence the upgrade to a larger frame with short stem

    I dropped down to a 65mm until I went with a wider bar, now I'm running a 50mm.
    I still feel like a large frame is a touch big for me. A medium Bronson or Solo may be next.

    This is what I actually planned on starting with. 60mm stem on a 725 bar and 150mm fork. I have 50, 60 and 90mm stems but no 70 or 80mm.

    Large frame with 140mm X-Fusion Velvet (almost the same axle to crown as fox 32 150mm)
    Raceface Next 725mm carbon bar 3/4" rise
    90mm 5 degree stem with 1/2" spacers under

    Feels little cramped but I got used to it (my other bike is a shorter DJ and does not feel as tight, go figure).

    As an aside, but to others who may be reading, I rode the BLT2 with a 150mm Fox Float for a long time, and it was good. Dropped it to 140mm and its excellent. All aspects of handling are spot on with the shorter travel . . . more stable up hill, and way more precise downhill.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I'm really interested to get a 160mm fork on my LTc. At this point, I think I'll wait for the X-Fusion Slant. 34mm stanchions, 15mm thru, and comes in a 130/160 travel adjust(DLA). A few stores have them listed, but they are not in stock yet. Pretty competitive pricing at around $700, especially when comparing the Pike and Fox 34 CTD forks at ~$1000.

    Really nice setups, will post mine as soon as itīs finished.

    I see some of you are running XT/XTR trail pedals... was wondering what (enduro, AM, trail) shoes you would recommend for those pedals. Donīt mean to hijack the thread but havenīt found any info regarding this.

    I've been wearing the shimano sh-m162 for about a year. Really like them.

    Few updates on my Blur so I thought I would post a new picture. The 2014 damper on the fox floats is a massive improvement.
