    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?

    Lets see those LT2s

    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.

    A question, if I may. Apologies if this is not the right place.

    Iím faced with either replacing pretty much everything on my LT2 except the frame or upgrading to a 5010 or Bronson. Would you still build up an LT2 (2009) with new, high quality (expensive) parts or are the new SC bikes, with the new geometry and bigger wheels, so much better that spending that amount on an LT2 would be a silly thing to do?

    Opinions appreciated.

    I think replacing everything with high end components would be cheaper than buying the 5010 or bronson with high end components. my buddy just spent 7k on his bronson c. That aside i think you need to ask yourself what you like to do. if climbing hills faster isn't your game and you are more of a downhill ripper then stay with the 26. If you want to get up the hills a little easier and rail the downhills pretty quick as well then move to the 5010 or bronson. i've ridden a full bronson c with enve's and it moves up the hill a little better then my blur lt2 but downhill at my skill level they are about equal.

    Thanks gexas. A bit surprised but delighted to hear that the BLT2 is as quick downhill as the Bronson for you. Reading all of the hype about the new bikes it's easy to think my old faithful BLT2 would be miles behind whoever was riding it!

    You will probably find limited options for fork upgrade on the 2009 LT2, that had a straight 1-1/8 headtube. I would upgrade the frame if I were you, or get a nice drivetrain and parts that could be moved over to another frame later.

    You're correct about the headtube and the lack of forks. I think I will stick with my frame for now as I can still get some Revelation RCT3s with 1-1/8 steerer but if I break those in a year or two I could be in trouble. As you say, I can swap the other stuff over to a new frame then. Thanks for posting.

    Has anyone tried the new Monarch RT3 or RC3+ Debonair shocks on the LT2? I am interested in getting one but I am concerned that the stock compression tune (M) might not suit the LT2, which normally comes with a L tune, if I'm not mistaken.
