Pro Bike Builds - Mark Scott's Santa Cruz Blur

Pro Bike Builds - Mark Scott's Santa Cruz Blur

Our mechanic, Tomy, recently had the pleasure of piecing together Mark Scott’s brand new Santa Cruz Blur CC - we all love building high end bikes, but it’s even more special when it’s for a friend and professional rider racing at the highest level.

Mark Scott is a familiar name in the mountain bike scene both locally and worldwide. With racing experience through almost all disciplines ranging from World Cup Downhill, the Enduro World Series, National Cross Country and Cyclocross, and other personal challenges all you need to do is glance at Mark’s Strava profile and you know he means business. The Santa Cruz Blur CC that Mark’s now riding is the perfect tool for his huge days out and long distance efforts. 
The new Santa Cruz Blur CC is a work of art. With 100mm of travel front and rear, the slim carbon frame and super-efficient Superlight™ suspension platform, the Blur is built to be as light as possible but with no shortcuts or details forgotten. Two water bottle mounts are a great representation of what Santa Cruz had in mind while designing this bike - it’s not just designed for shorter cross country races, it’s built to take on the longest, multi day expeditions with ease.

Mark’s build is unsurprisingly at the top of the range, running the new Reserve 28 XC wheelsets, SRAM XO1 AXS drivetrain and Reverb seatpost, and a RockShox Sid SL Ultimate fork paired with RockShox SidLuxe Ultimate shock with bar mounted lockouts to maximise power output on smoother climbs.
