I apologize if you already know abut this, thought it would a good read for those who dont know.

Blur LT
The original Blur won many hearts with its incredible rear suspension performance and its amazing handling. People immediately began putting longer travel forks on them and going out in search of bigger, rougher terrain and new limits to push. Hmmm, we thought, maybe we should design something suited more specifically for this kind of riding. This in turn led to the genesis of the BLT.
It’s a Blur, swift pedaling, good climbing, and blessed with very sweet chassis integrity. But it’s a little more than that, too. More rear wheel travel (5.3 inches), slightly longer wheelbase for more stability, more tire clearance, a little more metal around the head and downtube for added strength and the ability to run up to six-inch forks, and a more kicked back geometry (69.5 degree head angle measured around a five inch travel fork) for added confidence in the steeps. All that, and it can still hit the trail at easily less than 28 pounds.

Expected release date for the Blur LT frame – June 1st, 2005
Estimated USMSRP for BLT frame with Fox Float RP3 rear shock – $1,499
