Whats better than an all carbon Santa Cruz Blur XC? Apparently a TI front end makes sense for this application. I don't get it, I understand the vibration dampening quality of ti, but DOES This bikes front end change anything on the blur XC carbon? Headangle, maybe the lust for a slacker headangle makes sense; right? Well they could have solved that problem with an angleset, instead of welding up a ti front triangle for this "gem" I wonder if this was some sort of under the radar build with "crash replacement" parts. Whatever it is here is the mong0loid stepchild carbon ti blur/non blur, guess it really does blur the line. At least it has a nice build kit on it.
and the the linkage and shock mount are gorgeously machined, this isn't NAHMBS guys!
NEXT up ... cool concept I have seen this somewhere before though... these are still sick, post one up in your woodshed, workroom, garage, or your bathroom...Pick a place or collect all 4...
BTW lampcycle produces a it more dope stuff than the "other" guy
REDLINE FLIPPER TINY RAMP
Remember maxm components/ titus exogrid? well these guys sure do. Thought it was kinda funny that they were talking as if it were some new technology
about new technology: there were a lot of electronic bikes at the show, everything from di2 Dura-Ace, Ultegra, and my favorite Campy Super Record... Didn't see any SRAM RED electronic bits... guess they are keeping it under wraps till the tour (commence rumors now)
WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO BE DOING RIGHT NOW
Speaking of titus previously On-ONE (famous for the inbred back in the day) now owns Titus
this "one" looks a lot like a NINER RDO even the lines are similar, and the fork looks like a beefed up Pinarello slightly... Alas, you could have three of these for the same price as one of those..
