    Great build you there TLM!

    But I would like to see the back part of your Hope brake levers. Do they come with some sort of a matchmaker? Coz I don't see a ring clamp of your XO shifters

    Congrats!

    Hope now make a "matchmaker" clamp for their brakes which suit both Shimano and SRAM. They work perfectly and keep everything looking clean and uncluttered.

    Random ?

    Hey, random question for BLTc owners.

    Are the frame decals removable? I would imagine that they are.

    thanks.

    They are removable if you slide your chainstay on a rock. I managed to loose the VPP decal on the left chainstay. Didn't get into the carbon though.
    Go that way, really fast. If something gets in your way...turn.

    Hi All,

    Here is my new Blur LTC. Crap picture but awesome bike!

    Wettest November in years in UK so it's been slow and muddy but it's still a complete blast. Responsive, stiff climbs well and comes down like a beauty!



    Cats not too bad either ;-)

    Nope, but I am really interested in trying a Lyrik 2 Step.

    I think that would yield awesome versatility to an already awesomely versatile bike.

    A Revelation 2 Step would be awesome.

    I am a U-Turn hater...two specific and easy to switch to settings seems like the perfect setup to me.

    agreed on all counts...
    U-turn - not for me either
    Lyrik 2 step - I'd love to try one on a LT
    Rev 2-step - we can dream!

    I built my LTc with a 36 TALAS 160 fork. With a GravityDropper seatpost, the 160 fork, and standard X9 build kit, the bike weighs just over 30 lbs. It's an absolutely incredible all around machine. The longer fork makes for a slacker head angle, which in turn makes the bike very stable on the descents. For climbing and flat trails, I use the fork's 130mm setting and it handles great. I am very happy with this setup.

    What's your wheelbuild?

    What's the BB height @ 160mm?

    What tires? Tubes or tubeless?

    Define "just over 30 lbs."

    I'm considering one, but I've got questions that you've answered for me...

    Thanks!

    Wheels - DT 340 hubs laced to DT Swiss 5.1d rims. I could definitely save some weight here.

    BB height - no idea

    Tires - Front: Kenda Nevegal 2.35; Rear: Kenda Small Block 2.3; Tubes in both, another place I could easily shave some weight.

    I also run Crank Brothers Acid pedals, which are not the lightest.

    The weight I believe was 30.5 lbs. I think it would be pretty easy to get down to 29 with lighter wheels, tubeless tires, lighter cranks (I have SLX), and carbon bars. That's where I'll be spending my money. But with the long fork and the adjustable seatpost, this bike is never going to be in the 26 lb range like some of the builds on this thread. I would like it to be under 30 (not sure why really), but after that it's all gravy.

    I endure the climbs in order to enjoy the descents. A lighter bike would be nice, but the 36 fork is, I think, a must.

    Hey guys,

    New to the forum and looking at purchasing either a LTc or a Nomad.

    Now i have read this thread and the Nomad thread and i must say i am no closer to a decision than i was before...

    On the one hand, the Nomad could be built lighter and be at a respectable weight to serve as a do everything bike and on the other hand the LTc could be built up a bit burlier to be more AM ish and have the advantage of a stiffer more responsive frame.

    For those who have had a 36 up front, what sort of riding would you describe yourself as doing? I am thinking that even though it will slacken the front end out it would be great on the rough stuff and downhill runs.

    I would be doing more AM style riding with it. So at the end of the day my question would be is the LTc suited to this or am i better off getting the Nomad. Ideally i would love to be in a position to have both, but i have to chose one!!! Arrrgh. This decision is killing me and there isn't one around that i can test ride. I live in Australia too if that sways anyone's decision.

    Special Circumstances on the shock, going to give it a go, there is always the possibility of picking up a 8.5 x 2.5 fox rp23. The h3 has a bit shorter eye to eye and might be cool for some of the slalom trails around here. Wont know till I try it

    I've been riding a Blur LTC for a week or so on demo from my shop, and the thing is awesome! I just wanted to know though what kind of luck people on here are having running the LTC as an AM bike. I'm almost positive I'm gonna get one, I just wanted to see what people think about the bike as more than an XC bike if that makes any sense.

    This frame is super stout and will ride differently depending on the build. I have a 150mm fork and 2.5 tubless tires on mavic 823's so it's wide and burley. A little heavier than most at 28 lbs but I'm riding the same stuff as my fiends on nomads, all the jumps, drops and rockgardens and faster....this is THE bike to build to your taste

    looking for some input from BLT2 owners on fork height. i'm not a fan of adjustable travel, i prefer to set and forget.

    questions:

    - i'm guessing that 150mm of travel (530-535mm axle to crown) probably results in a nicely balanced position for both climbing and descending? feedback please.

    - for those running a lyric or 36, how do you find the climbing position/performance at full travel?

    - regarding stiffness, i've heard the frame is hella stiff and i'll likely be running a coil shock so i don't want to have the bike "under forked". for those running revelations or 32mm fox/others, do you notice front end flex/deflection when pinning it?

    appreciate the input...

    I have a 150mm Float RLC Fit Fork with a tapered steerer on my LTc. Climbs and descends well. Best "compromise" I guess.

    I have a 36 Talas on my Nomad2 and have never used the Talas feature. ( I should have got the Float). A riding buddy has a 36 Vanilla on his alum LT2 and he climbs with the best of them.

    Yes the frame is stiff. No front end flex/deflection here.

    Good job!

    I'm running a 2010 RP23 on the rear and from reading several reviews this years model is hard to beat even with a coil!
    Up front I have a 2010 Talas 150 and have no problem with flex or climbing. I do use the adjustability for very steep hills but more because it's there! If I had the Float with no adjustablity,it would be fine for climbing.
    I would definately recommend 150 travel as a minimum because the geometry feels better at this angle.
    The frame is very stiff and inspires a lot of confidence, which is why I built mine up with quality kit!
    Good luck choosing the build...

    I've had the bike almost a month and am loving it. Coming from a 4 inch XC bike (Epic), I was worried about how this would climb, but I've been pleasantly surprised with how good it feels on long sustained fireroad climbs. Technical climbing is insane - a whole new world for me coming off an Epic - the rear end feels like it pushes you up and over rocks/stair steps. Descending is even better than expected - super plush/stable - I find myself going so much faster downhill than I used to. It also rails flat/rolling singletrack really well. The only thing I've lost vs. the XC bike is acceleration - doesn't have that instant power transfer the Epic had. The drop seatpost with remote is heavy, but worth every gram. Combined with a TALAS 150, this thing truly is an all-mountain dream bike.

    No issues with the KS seatpost. It's really solid - no play - and the remote works great. It's really great to be able to instantly adjust seat height on the fly.

    Its definitely an AM bike. Im living in Malaysia on assignment and had brought my Team Scalpel out. Great bike for California but it just beat the crap out of me where I ride in Bukit Kiara (check out youtube). Lots of big rock gardens, big drops, wet roots - i bought the LTc with Fox Talas 150 and RP23, Kenda Nevengal 2.35 upfront, 2.1 in back, XX brakes, XTR cranks, cassette, XO shifter derailler, spinergy wheels - weight is 25.5 lbs and it just floats through all that crap... also climbs well, not as great as the scalpel, but i have a lot more energy to climb now that im not recovering from near misses all of the time and can relax a bit on the super technical.

    No regrets at all beautiful bike that rides better than it looks - wholeheartedly recommend

    I got it to work, you'd think I'd be savy enough to make it work, haha. She's a dirty one right now, the weather has sucked so bad my first rides have all pretty much been done in the rain. Soon though!!

    Photos of my Ride

    So I have had my LTc since about November or so. Rode a Superlight for almost 10 years and will never look back with the Blur. Take a look and enjoy. This is a large with Crank Bros Cobalt Rims. I have never ridden a better bike, it far exceeds my abilities.











    The entire gallery can be found here http://www.garysworld.net/Blur-LT-carbon

    Along with hours of entertainment with the other galleries, but do be careful if you are at work.

    Enjoy, Gary

    Which headset for BLTc with 1-1/8" steerer??

    Just got my new BLTc frame and I going to be running my Revelation (1-1/8" steerer) and I'm trying to determine which headsets will fit.

    I need a 1.5" lower cup (preferably external) which has the race to accept the 1-1/8" steerer (not tapered) and then I guess a zero stack upper cup (1-1/8").

    Anyone else running a similar fork steerer size and if so what headset are you running?

    THanks in advance!!!

    Cane Creek 110ZS for 1-1/8" fork on BLTc

    I ended up going with a Cane Creek 110ZS 1-1/8" upper and a 110 1.5" lower BUT you need to also get the correct crown race (Cane Creek part# .HD1406) which fits the 1.5" BLTc headtube size AND down-converts to accommodate the 1-1/8" steerer. I ordered the headset direct from CC and they hooked me with the correct crown race for FREE in addition to the 1.5" crown race (which comes with the lower cup) so I can use it with a tapered fork as well.

    Thanks yoyoz and Thanks Cane Creek!!!

    Blur LTc - Optimal RP23 Air Volume Settings?

    Looking for some feedback on what's working for others ....

    I weigh 190lbs and I've added 160 PSI air pressure to the RP23 in order to get the recommended 18mm of sag in the shock. I'm finding, however, that this feels a bit harsh on the trail, especially at low speeds.

    I've experimented with 150-155 PSI and the result was that the shock felt OK at slow speeds, but way too soft at higher speeds - in fact, the O-ring was knocked right off on several occassions.

    I live in Vancouver and ride primarily "XC" on the North Shore, so the terrain tends to be slow, technical XC with some fairly large hits thrown in for good measure.

    Just curious if anyone has found the magic sweet spot?

    I would go with 175mm. People who run- 165, 170 mm cranks are most likely on DH, FR bikes. P.S I am 5'10 1/2
