- What fork on a blur LTC
I know it’s a first world problem, but I have this lovely frame and want to build if back up.
Had lyric 2 step airs before and not that impressed. Fancy a single purpose fork, making this Wales and Alpine friendly bike.
Sold and re homed all other bits to build another bike which suits most my usual XC needs, so I’d like to make this into a bit of a thug.
Thinking 160, maybe 150mm
What fork seems a good choice for stiff, light etc….
Whilst I’m at it, what wheelset too

I’ve had Fox float 160s and recently put new 160mm 27.5 Pikes on my Blur LTc.Posted 5 years ago
Feels great to me!posiwevMember
Just taken dual step Lyrics off mine and put 140 CTD 32’s much plusher, just the job for trail riding.Posted 5 years ago

Plays well with these,
160mm 34 Floats with the Avalanche Cart in them.
Alternative would be the pikeskidsareforkidsMember
I like my 160mm 36 Talas RLC, I also liked my 150mm Revelation Teams I used to have… Would be interested to try 34s or new Pikes as a comparison, but I would definitely say 150/160mm travel works very well 🙂Posted 5 years ago
I’d also add I was running older 36s and 55s on my heckler before I got the blur and I don’t notice a lack of stiffness at all.Posted 5 years agohaggis1978Member

160 Pikes on mine. had 150 Revs and they were good but Pikes rock. only 5mm longer overall too.

Dual position pikes here – great match for the LTcPosted 5 years ago4130s0ulSubscriber
Fox 36 TALAS 160mm’s for me (2011’s I think) they’re a great complimentary fork for the bike.Posted 5 years ago
at 160mm they’re all the burl you need
at 130mm they help on the climbs.
and the thickness of the stanchions match the frame perfectly. anything thinner and they just appear too spindly IMO
