    One more thing, my bike weighs in a scant 24.5lbs, before I upgraded to the heavier
    shimano M324 multi-purpose pedals.. I'm thinking of adding disc brakes, but am
    worried that may add a pound to the overall weight. Heh, I can stand to lose several
    times that in body fat .

    Is it a size large??? If so it looks like 2001 frame. Rear triangle is 2001 and earlier design, and the sloping top tube is 2001 design on large. I ride a 2001 medium, looks like new and still love every second of it.

    Yes, it is a large. I'm 5"8' and it fits me perfectly. I know medium is my size, but I feel
    more comfy with the L frame. My friend has a M heckler and it feels a bit small for me.

    Nothing But Love

    I never rode the Blur but after riding this I don't feel the need. I went from an 02 NRS to this and man what a difference. I clean everything I used to walk, just point the bike and hold on. I tried locking out the rear on climbs and that might as well not even be an option, I bounced more with the rear rigid than I did with it unlocked. At 6'1" and 180 pounds this bike has no noticeable flex or bob and I would recommend to anyone looking for a XC rig.

    Check the serial number on the bottom of the BB shell, the first two numbers represent the year (at least for mine which is an '02).

    My starts with 2K....... So I think it's just a coincidence with yours or perhaps they
    started stamping the year on the BB in '02?

    Weight of your superlight

    Hi Guys, I was just checking out the thread on weight of the new Blurs.
    Some of those blurs weigh 27-28lbs, as much as my friend's Heckler.
    To be fair, there is a guy with a 22.x lbs Blur, but most people are at 25+lbs.
    How much does your Superlight weight?

    I have mostly XTR components with Propel wheel set and avid ti v brakes.
    I weighed my bike on two different scales and it comes in at 24.5lbs.
    Size of frame is L.

    ..it's not a coincidence with mine, someone told me to look for it. And with yours, 2K tells me it's a model year 2000..??..

    New question here. Santa Cruz Superlight

    Hi,

    I see that you have a chain stay protection on your Superlight. I just bought a Superlight frame and will be riding the bike in couple of days (as soon as i figure out how to install the hydraulic brakes). Anyway, I'm contemplating if I need the chainstay protection since the chain is below. Thanks in advance and I'll post my ano-orage frame soon.

    Sometimes I lust for others (Blur, Heckler, 5.5, El Cham, X-5), but I always seem to come back to my baby below. '00 anodized blue. Manitou Black 100mm Fork, Manitou Swinger 3 Way SPV shock. Mix of SRAM/Shimano drivetrain. Avid Mechs.

    I placed her on my front porch, where keg usually goes... so that's a special place.

    I have been riding my SL for several months now and have never had any problems with chainslap. I do run a fairly tight chain though.

    Matte Black

    Does anyone own or have you seen the matte black powdercoat Superlight? Looks like they don't make it in anodized black.
