I just bought a used 07 Blur 4x frame to build up for my recently retired Dad. He wants to get into biking at 69.
I have most of the components from when I upgraded my Heckler, but there are a few I need some help with.
Could someone please help with the follow
rear derailleur hanger?
Other than that I either have the parts or know what I need. I appreciate the help.
Headset is 1 1/8" traditional
Front derailluer is bottom swing/dual pull...get a 34.9(it'll have shims if it is smaller)
Check the Santa Cruz web store for derailleur hanger/dropout. 1st Generation Blurs were all the same.
I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
The carbon is way more durable than most people.
thanks for the help.
realized I need one more component,
rear derailleur, long, medium, short?
depends on how many rings youre running on the front and the size of the cassette. If youre running a 1X or 2X on the front, you prolly want a medium cage. definitely not a short cage (basically reserved for downhill bikes when running a road cassette and 1X).

so what is the setup? you mentioned a front derailleur earlier, so i assume youll be putting 2X or 3X on the front.
I'm planning on a 2X up front. Don't think the old man needs more than that.
