It's all love right here

Where is the Superlight love?
I test rode the Blur twice on real trails when looking for a new frame. It was either going to be that or a Superlight. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't convince myself that it was all that and a bag of chips, I just didn't think it was that over the top great ride that everyone else seems to experience. It felt too sluggish in the twisties for my tastes. It is a good bike no doubt - probably very good. But the Superlight was just more fun to drive. Plus the Superlight has a been there, done that simple proven design.

I think the Superlight is still an awesome bike.

I Loved & Rode the snot outta both of my SL's but they were a little flexy for my 205 pound frame. Totally setup to your preferences the Blur is over the top.....And if your not setup spot on it does make a bigger difference on the Blur over the SL.
I still have an OG Tazmon (wish I never sold my 1st one) that I'll be putting together soon just to have around....I've always liked that bike over the SL. :D

Apparently, it is no longer hip or fashionable to love or ride a Superlight since the much balyhooed Blur hit the scene. Which, of course is good for me, as I am neither hip nor fashionable. Viva la Superlight!

I'm Feelin' the Love!

Here's my '03 silver anodized SL with Chris King headset, upgraded Float AVA, White Brothers AT-4, XT group.
It's currently up for sale as I may buy a Blur or I may keep it.

Got it back in 2000 with a help of student loan -- one of the smartest choices I made in college :D Pretty much all the components have been changed though over the years:

- x317/Hugi240/DT Revolution
- Avid mech
- CT2/Chris King
- Old school XTR rear d.

There were times when I rode almost every day, and this baby never let me down. This one's definitely a keeper!

You are making me pine for the `00 SL I sold this fall. I just now realize that I have no pictures of her. :(

I needed a change..

You sold her????? WHY!!! What did you get in place of the SL??
I was looking for something that would have a a more active rear end, and had 5" on both ends. I ended up with the Heckler. Actually, it is only a little more active than the superlight, but it soaks up big hits and drops far better. The geometry is also better suited for flying off of things than the superlight. I am a little surprised I bought another single pivot bike. Hey, it is a good design that is reliable and it works. I am running a Z1 FR on it, though I am probably going to switch to a TALAS for the sharper steering and more efficient ride. I hope the buttery-smooth, bottomless (and taller) Z1 has not spoiled me when hell breaks loose on the way down the mountain.

I like the stealth shock

Got my shock tuned up and my Beauty is back in business:
It looks like you took the sticker off the rear shock. I did the same with mine. Much cleaner looking. I took them off the fork as well.

Very nice. What year is the frame?
Don't know, the guy who sold me the frame was not sure about the year .It is probably a 01 frame, originally came with a cane creek shock. Is there a way to know a superlight frame year?
