    Blur Set-up for XC

    Just got my rootbeer Blur this week. So far a great bike. I'm working on some set-up. I know the bars are way too wide. They are the Monkey Lite XCs. Wondering about a flat bar instead. Seems like I'm too upright. Right now the bars and seat are just about at the sam level.

    I'm glad I did not go to riser bars (which I've been using on my other bikes the past 5 years) on the Blur as I would definitely be too upright on my med frame. I'm even considering that I might have to go to the Thompson kick back seat post to open up the cockpit a little more..........but probably not as I intend to use the Blur for some very long races.

    Well things are getting more comfy. Swapped the stem to a Thomson 100mm, took a spacer out from the headset and trimmed the bars down. Still might try a flat bar. We'll see.
