    Got a Blur 4x earlier in the week - Front shock is a Fox Talas RLC (thanks Snacks) Rear shock is a Fox RP3. I took it the BMX track today and raced it in the cruiser class - I didn't do too well, but it was a lot of fun :D I just gotta stiffen up the suspension....yes, that's a Mac ibook laptop in the background.

    I was thinking of getting it in white, but the VPFree is white and my BMX bike is white too, so I thought I'd change it up a bit. Plus the trans blue is just oh so pretty.

    derekpearson - I think the retail cost of the frame is around the $1450-$1500 range.
