The Blur XC Carbon is tailor-made for hard, fast days in the saddle. Part of what makes them such great bikes is the finely tuned VPP rear suspension. But the bearings only last so long and the folks at Santa Cruz know this. So one of the coolest things Santa Cruz does is to offer a lifetime bearing warranty to the original owner.
While you must cover the cost to get your bearings to Santa Cruz, they will pay to send replacement bearings to you. However, Santa Cruz Bicycles will not be liable for any labor costs involved in swapping out the bearings. If you want to get your new bearings fast, include a description of your frame (size, model and serial number) and how long you've had your bearings.
So why are we telling you this, and why do we sell bearings? We suggest that you buy a bearing kit in advance to avoid down time, then send in the old bearings to start the cycle. That way, you get to keep riding while the bearings are in the mail.
The Santa Cruz Blur XC Carbon Bearing Kit includes:
- 4 -- Enduro 7900Z MAX greasable lower pivot bearings
- 2 -- Enduro 7900RS MAX bearings
- 2 -- Enduro 6800LLUMax bearings
