    Since my FSR is back ordered for a few weeks .... suggestions?

    My Stumpjumper FSR Comp is on back order for xx amount of weeks and I was wondering what you guys would suggest besides this rig. I'm willing to spend a little more cash, but nothing over 2 grand. Can I get a Blur for around that or are they way out of my league? I don't really like the NRS and I'm in the process of lookin' at some Treks.

    I ride some pretty aggressive XC ... no really long downhills even though I love em ... learning to take some jumps and drops, but getting myself to take the 3 foot drop is kinda hard ... lol.

    all blurs are on back order that i know of. If you really want the FSR and you've already ordered it just wait it out. Sucks but that's the thing to do.

    I got a last years model in a 19inch frame...probably to big for ya. But if not, I'd sell it cheap.

    if you aren't having fun, then you get rigid, stiff, crash, cry and then you make your new friend run away..... (there don't you feel less nervous now?)

    Blurs are really back ordered and as far as I know damn expensive. Just be patient. (or buy used)

    My LBS has several built up Blurs and Superlights. They are very pricey though. I think they were in the $2500-$3500 range.

    There is a shop in my area that usually has a Blur frame or two laying around.

    I built one up a month ago and I have to say that it is a very, very impressive ride. The VPP lives up to the hype, the suspension has little to no pedal induced bob, and even out of the saddle anything close to a smooth pedal stroke will minimze actuation of the rear suspension. I really think it represents a notch up in suspension sophistication from the venerable FSR platform. Definitely worth waiting for.

    I was lucky to get one in my area. Had to hunt all over, but as soon as i found one, I ran and got it. Its a sweet bike and if you can hold off till they arrive, do it. I understand the frustration. Due to the availability of them, they went up $200 around here. Hang in there. I think you will be happy if you can get your hands on one. You may want to hit the phone books too.
