OK, I'll bite.
XC Race capable?
Yes, but on any sort of smooth course I'd grab my NRS first. I think the Blur will flat out move over most sorts of terrain, but the NRS suspension is hard to beat in terms of efficiency. I plan on doing some Local and some Colorado races with the Blur, so we will see.
25.6 Bike is set up with a Marz. Marathon S 100, 9.0 sl shifters and rear mech, xtr front. Race Face Turbine lp Isis cranks, Race Face Sig. XS ti bb. Hayes hydro disc brakes, Mavic Crossmax disc wheels, Python tubeless tires, King HS, Thomson post/stem, Easton carbon flat bar, titec micro b-ends and a Giro Nisene Ti CP saddle.
It is definitely the most stable downhill platform I've been on.
So far I have found very little to dislike. It is still relatively new though. Overall I think that this is a great trail bike, one that I can happily spend hours aboard, riding tasty, technical terrain.
