    Long steep ones for my old and weak legs. LOL

    Just trying to match the 22/36 ratio on my 2x10. The current 28/36 is a bit tall on those long climbs even though I could still make it without knee pain afterwards. When the 42 comes, I may try a 30t.

    Dig the coil & Lyrik setup! Nice to see a LT2 with some balls! I want to set up my wife's Blur like that for park & DH riding.

    My blur has a coil fork. I have ridden coil over air for years, coils are smoother in my opinion. I have air on the rear, that seems to be ok.

    Thanks TZ. It's my one-bike-for-everything (all mountain?) setup, so coil front and back. Easier to maintain too.

    How does Float X feels on the blur?
    My CTD is great for climbing but is a bit harsh on the square edge and fast hits so I am looking for a replacement.

    Can't help with the Float X, but as I posted on the owners thread, I just put a ccdb air on my LTc and so far it's been a surreal improvement in bump compliance (square edged or otherwise), overall traction, and even pop on jumps. The possible short coming is the lack of a lock out for climbing, but not a big deal for me (and they do have a climbing switch option now). Assuming it doesn't spontaneously catch on fire anytime soon, its easily the best suspension investment I've ever made. I only mention it in reference to the Float X because I don't think there is much difference in cost between the two - although I have heard positive reviews of the Float X.

    Prefer the Harbor Grey.

    RoRode a Blur LT2 with 140mm Fox fork and 650B front wheel in Colorado for a week. Since the frame is designed for 150mm-160mm fork, the bike geometry was essentially stock. One of the best handling bikes Ive ridden. The only thing keeping me from owning one is having to carry two tubes. Dumb reason huh?

    Yes, because a 26" tube can easily work in a 650b or 29er tire.

    Maybe for you, but I couldn't get the 650B tire to mate with the rim because the tube stretcehd so tight. Have you actually done it?

    Pump up the tube a little bit before putting it in the tire, this gets it to expand a little and is easier to get it on. I didn't have an issue putting a 26" tube in 650b using this method.
