      I think the difference was like an inch in the toptube, when looking at L vs XL Blurs. Post the geo stats for bronnys in L and XL so we can see.


      I ended up adding a layback seatpost to the Heckler which fixed kneepain, but effectively also added an inch to the top tube, as it put the seat back an inch, transferred this to the Blur XL though so you could say the Blur is effectively an XXL based on seat position lol

      I'd say the Blur has a slight edge giving a bit more room on the frame, but to be honest it's very hard to tell.

      I contacted invisiframe but they didn't do a template for a Blur, I could have got the closest match Solo or Bronny, but would have meant some messing about. I just put lizard skin rub patches where appropriate and polish her when she gets a 3 monthly wash.
      Ah cheers - good to know

      Sizes are:

      Invisiframe for Blur (not sure if ride flavour)

      • Yeah Blur TR isn't as big a travel as mine and older model, couldn't find the Blur LT 2.3, the last Blur they made with long travel before it went EOL and SOLO and Bronny came out.

        I'd deffo invisiframe it if an option lol

          • Can you search google and singletrackworld for yellow bronson, see if any have been stolen, same with bikeradar etc

            How about the serial number does the frame have one, or has he chiselled it off? lol

            I think leisure lakes recent break in lost a yellow bronny

            • TBH im very tempted just to pull the trigger on a new one ( ) and get the frame / bearing warranty and 0% finance - need to read up but assume you can pay it off early with no charges or penalties


              Pink or black ? ............................

                    I think black, more understated and less pinch me, see this on back of my car follow me home etc

                    Stealthing about with Santa Cruz VPP plushness

                    I took finance out with Stif 8 years back or so and they used V12 (who aria use now) and I had 2 year interest free monthly payments, but decided to clear balance after 16 months without penalty.

                    Give Stif a call super helpful guys, and see who they use now on finance.

                    I think brand new is the way to go if i'm honest, I mean its pretty cheap when you look what you get, and 0%, and its your main hobby right? How much a month would it cost?


                    Some peeps spend 10k+ on a car, I mean WTAF, 20k on a wedding, 10k on a new kitchen, 3-4k on a bike which can take you to some amazing places in sheer utter comfort and plushness, give cardio and health gains, and just make you smile everytime you see it, priceless!

                        • What do we have here then?




                          Hoody is very comfy and great long sleeves and back

                          Shirt is nice and long, comfy with breathable stuff


                          Shorts are cool too, although I think I need to loose a bit of weight to really fit them

                          Not bad at all for 34 delivered

                            Im prolly looking at sub 100/month and save some too and pay off in under a year (thats the plan)

                            I like the pink but don't have anywhere near the skillzzz to try and carry it off and do like the black

                            Invisiframed, with pink decals lol
