    "Ultimate Bike Build"

    I wanted to share a big thank you and share a quick story I thoughtsome might get a kick out of about how one Blur LT2 is "changing the world"....
    Santa Cruz donated a bike frame to be auctioned off back at the end of 2008 to help support the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship at Downieville.

    I won the ebay auction, bought the rest of the stuff at my LBS and have thoroughly enjoyed the bike. I also enjoyed the thought that I was supporting something that many others would benefit from. This LT2 has been a fantastic all around bike, chewing up anything I could throw at it and coming back for more. However, Iately I've had a taste for an even lighter, faster ride so I found a great deal a 2010 Blur XCc and absolutely love the 23.lbs razor rocket that it is. So I figure I'm gonna do like most people and sell the LT2 and recoup some $$ to feed my mtb fever, but then a thought hit me, this bike helped build a trail system for people to ride and enjoy, what else can this bike build? You see, I've had an interest in supporting a project to bring clean drinking water to the some of the nearly 1 Billion people that don't have it, but honestly the thought was pretty overwhelming. Average cost of a water well is $5K, but hey, this bike has still got to be worth some decent coin so I put it on the local Craigslist and within a few days a Firefighter from a few hours down the road comes with his buddy to pick it up, but not before I give them a tour of our local trail. He loved the bike, so soon I'll be making a sizable donation (100% of the sales price plus some) to really jump start this water project.
    Check it out at http://mycharitywater.org/believe and see what these people are doing to put a dent in the global water crisis and how you can help.

    Anyway, it's a great feeling when you finish a great bike build, I expect it will be just as good or better to witness what this bike builds next.

    All Glory to Him.
