Hey @BrianGT3 how do you like the new Blur? Does it live up to the hype? Any thoughts you can share?
First impressions - this bike is amazing!

What ever Santa Cruz did with the geometry they did it right.

Solid climber, lots of grip, good acceleration. Seat tube angle isn't far off my road bike, easy to lay down power. With a low BB height it loves to corner, loved the single track. On the tech and downhills it rides like a trailbike! I took conservative lines but barely uncorked it's capabilites. I'm really looking forward to racing it this coming Sunday.

I hoping after racing it this weekend I get gather a little more data and experience getting a solid ride on it. I'm planning to write up a review which I will post up on the board here sometime next week.
