After a few more rides, I'll post a review. However, my initial impressions are that this is going to be my dream ride! The Mavic Crossmax SL wheelset combined with the Fox TerraLogic fork and 5th Element Air shock make this bike just jump out from underneath me!

It was worth the wait!!!!

Dude, that's one ugly bike, you should give it away! To help you ease your burden and being such a nice guy, I'll accept it from you.

Nice bike! Glad to hear you love it!

Sweet!!!

Funny, I was thinking of retooling my Scalpel with very similar components. I'm glad to hear you like them.

P.S. - Where in Pennsy are you?

I don't think you should care cause not like you'd even see it if you rode with him i'm sure cause all you'd see was his dust!

It's a Santa Cruz Blur. Read all about it (I've read every piece of it over the past 4 months!) here:

Do they say anything in the warranty paperwork about carrying a battery pack in your water bottle cage?

Out of curiosity, why would they?

Is there some reason not to?

Trek has a warning about not putting a battery pack in the water bottle mount on the Al frames. I was wondering if this one had the same restriction seeing the battery pack in the cage on the top photo.

I might be a little kid at 17, but most would disagree. I can honestly say I am not even .5% jelous of that bike, and I dont like how it looks. Or was I supposed to agree with everybody else and say the bike is beautiful? I dont know why I even wasted my time replying to what you said.
