The Blur LT in it's natural habitat:  muddy and smack dab in the middle of a great downhill run. This is the first iteration of my Blur: Sektor Coil fork, 3x10 Deore crank, Crosstrail wheels. First iteration Blur on Third Divide in Downieville. Blur LT drive train - Shimano XT stuff w/ chain guide. Blur LT on the trail in Upper Bidwell Park, Chico, CA.  Some of the toughest, most technical riding in the state!

    Although I loved my old Sektor Coil fork, the Revelation is slowly growing on me as it gets broken in. The seals were really sticky at first so while the big hits were butter, the small/fast chatter was rough and annoying. I would like a dual position Revelation RT3 at some point, just to take advantage of a better climbing position. The Blur LT is planted going downhill, but sometimes is feels almost too slack on those long sustained climbs. Dropping down to 120mm for a long climb would help a lot.
