    Great Trailbike!

    About 3 weeks old! Built from an 02' frame.

    Built up for general trail duty.

    A Joy to ride!

    Hey all,

    Im thinking about picking up an SL this summer. I want know the nitty gritty about it. What dont you like about it? and...that...that.....ughh...that irreplaceable droput!?.

    Im 165Lbs, and will be racing casually and trail riding with 2-3 foot drops max. (note: im not a hucker..when i mean drop i mean flying over obstacles and stuff.)

    Think this will give me what i need?>

    It's probably best to start a new thread. Also be sure to search this forum because you will find some good info - usually in a Blur v. SL or a SL or Heckler type discussion. As for the dropouts, and this is pretty much from what SC says, since it's not the two-piece type dropout, it is much stronger. And I've never heard of anyone breaking it on a SL. I think it could also be bent back if needed. After all these years, I think if it was a problem we would hear more complaints on this forum or SC would change the design. The SL is arguably one of the best XC designs ever made. Good luck with your SL purchase

    Last Pictures before I have to sell her

    I'm moving to Minnesota for med school, and I know I wont have much time to ride.
    So I'm thinking I'm going to have to sell her. I just wanted to post some pics of her so I
    could look at her during the freezing winters that my Nor Cal A$$ wont be used to.

    The specs.
    King head set, King wheel set, Thompson stem, Push'd Fox shock for a (170-190) rider.
    Brand new WTB Ti saddle. Hope Mini Mono disc breaks. Marz MX Pro w/ ETA 2004
    fork. Carbon handle bars. 8spd XT drive train.

    She was so much fun.

    Continental Vapor front and Geax Sturdy rear.
    I have had the Vapor on my SS and have quite liked it as a front tyre.
    Cannot go past the Sturdy as a rear tyre for over here in Australia on the trails I ride.

    Thanks. I didn't notice the Sturdy on the rear What size is it? The Sturdy is actually on my list for my next tire purchase for my hardtail. Would you say it rolls pretty well on hardpack/pavement? [I've a road ride to the trailhead and use the same bike for commuting to work]

    Sturdy is a 2.1 if that is what you mean.
    Superlight is a Large.

    Sturdy rolls just fine on hardpack and pavement.
    Tough tyres too. I have had that tyre on my bikes on and off for over 2 years and it is still in great condition. Cannot kill them with a stick.
    Very tall sidewall too which seems to help stop pinch flats.

    Oops, I meant the tire

    Just bought a Superlight

    I have been looking into a Blur. I have tested a SL and Blur and Intense. They are no longer making the regular Blurs they are all XC. I only need a frame. Based on a lot of investigating and COST I bought a SL. Everyone raves about its climbing which is what I want. The Blur is awesome also, and maybe better on the downhill. The cost difference was 700.00.
    Not only that, in my area there were no Blurs my size and it would have been a 8 week wait. I am stripping my Spec. Epic. I'm happy, it is silver anodized. With the less cost I can lighten it up even more with a new seat post and handlebars and adding travel to my forks.

    "Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket?"

    Short-term Superlight love

    Only had 'Kermit' for a couple weeks but loved every ride. Got the frame as the Blur XC I ordered wasn't going to make it in time for the TransRockies. Count Stylie (the NZ importer) gave me this XL Apple Green beauty to use for the race. All I can say was that it was a magic bike that had no problems, climbed incredibly well and decended like a champ. I just hope the Blur XC will match the high benchmark set by Kermit!

    Anyone else running Kenda's 2.1 Nevegals in the rear and getting rubbing on the seat stays? I think my crummy deore wheels have bad dish, or, anyone ever bent their rear triangle?

    Here's a obligatory pict of the ride --loving it nonetheless!

    Rubbage

    I had some rub marks from the Nevegals on the seatstays for sure. I was running the 1.95 version so I would imagine the 2.1 would rub for sure.

    ... and if we just ...

    im about to buy a Fox DHX Air 5.0 to put on the rear of my circa 99-00 superlight!!! cant wait to feel the difference from my Vanilla RC rear shock. i just got confirmation from scott @ santa cruz that the size should be 7.875 x 2.0, but a 2.25 will fit but squeezed.

    just some good data for the db.

    What made you decide to put a DHX air on it? I thought the biggest advantage of the DHX shocks was the bottoming control, but with the riding I did on my Superlight I never had a problem with bottoming a Float RC (which is more progressive than a vanilla). I'm not saying a DHX air is a bad idea, but it's a fairly heavy (for an air shock) and quite expensive shock, so I'm curious why you chose it.

    That said, I would die for one on my Heckler right now.
