    2010 (aluminum) Blur LT2- worth buying/good frame still?

    I've had two Blur4X frames-loved them. I've been offered a good deal on a 2010 Blur LT2 frame- is it a good frame or quite tall/steep-angled?

    Thoughts on how it rides compared to others etc? I tend to like low, stable bikes.

    I'd swap my current build over- 150mm 2014 Mazz 55 CR's, mix of SLX etc and 1x9 raceface narrow wide set up etc.

    based on a 140 fork (A2C of 529mm), the LT has a 68 degree HA. with a 150, youll prolly get to 67.5


    the BB is alot higher than the 4X though. 13.8 inches. the 4x had a BB height of 12.6 (although the numbers i found are based around a 471mm A2C fork, so your 150 fork probably makes your 4x a good amount higher

    Geometry numbers here:
    Blur LTc (same as the LT2): Bikes Blur LT Carbon | Santa Cruz Bikes UK
    Blur 4X: Santa Cruz Bicycles | Blur 4x > Geometry


    The Blur TR would probably be a better fit if youre looking for a low bike.... but the LT2 is still a great bike. just depends on what youre looking for.

    What is "quite tall" the size of the frame or the head angle...!?

    At 6,2" you need a size Large at least, the medium may feel fun to ride downhill but it will hurt you going up hill and on long rides..
