Santa Cruz Blur Pix ... post 'em if you got 'em!

I'm looking for some actual rider taken pix of the Santa Cruz Blur - not a pic from their web-site, etc.

Does anyone have one/two/many?? If so, would you please post?

ThanX!!!!!!

Try sarching Pinkbike.com's photo section. You might find a few pics of the Blur in action there.

ThanX for the pix, Singlespeedster. Also, I got a few from the pinkbike.com site - thanX Moab!

Anywho, I have one on order, and I just wanted some bike porn to get me through. If anyone has any more - shoot them my way!!!

Singlespeedster, now that you've put in a few rides, can you give me some feedback? What do you like the most? How do you have your shock set-up? Do you have the 03 XTR shifters? If so, how do you like them? Any other comments are also greatly appreciated.

ThanX!!!!!!

Hey SS. In the pic of you at the Creek, why are you looking at your front tire?

'Cos I was 30 miles into my ride and I hadn't yet begun the Dutch Creek climb.

The bike is awesome. I have had the pleasure of riding many different fulle suspension frames, and this is one of my favorites by far. It will alow you to go big, and be able to climb in one package.

I run the Fox Ava shock set up to Fox' recommendation. The Ava chamber is all the way out, I don't run too much rebound damping and it works quite, quite nicely.

The only Shimao parts on the bike are the front derailleur and the cassette, both XTR. The shifting duties are taken care of via SRAM 9.o sl and I am very pleased with the performance therein.

I likes the black ano, but I saw a poweder blue ano the other day, and I instantly had a vision of how sweet that bike would looks with all silver Thomson parts and the new silver Crossmax Sl disc wheelset.
