is a santa cruz blur a good choice bike for xc racing
my objective in buying the bike is speed over comfort within reason
the kind of racing i want to do is shorter track 2 hours ish up to 100k events in aus
ive compared the blur to the superlight, and the superlight does seem a little quicker under pedalling and may have ben down to rar shock pressure however this has been a road test only. i looked at a second hand superlight from 2001 and detected a crack in the rear swingarm which is a little offputting.
im fairly open on bike choice and am considering an ellsworth truth and a yeti asr as well
any advice appreciatedthanks
