Bruce Cormanwrote a review of Santa Cruz Bicycles Blur XC Carbon - 2012 on March 6, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is my first FS bike. Reviewed lots of on line reviews before pulling the trigger. Competitive Cyclist had a awesome deal. This bike is light and climbs like a mountain goat. Down the mountain is confident and fast. Flow tracks are my favourite as the bike curves into the track with flick-able fun. Twenty-niner seem so much heavier and not geared as well. Twenty-sixer has been the standard for the last twenty five years I have been riding. Bottom line...This is a fun bike.
