Kramer – it should be pretty easy to get a demo ride on an alu LT2, tons of dealers out there. The carbon LTs are only just coming into the country though.
xc4pot – I’ve ordered mine with an rp23, just wasn’t sure on the long term reliability of those monarchs yet. I see what you mean about the front mech cable routing…seems they could have planned that a bit better.
pedalhead – I just bought something else instead. Didn’t want to spend a summer demoing different bikes, just wanted to get out and ride. Am very happy with my new wheels, but Blur, Spesh, Trek etc lost a potential sale by not being at Bike Radar with demo bikes.
same thing happened with me – wanted to test ride a Blur LT but didnt have anything bigger than a med to ride
Everyone very vague about when LT carbon would be in, so I ended up buying another bike on Wednesday instead – they’ve lost a sale that they could have had
