I loved my SC Blur TR from years back. While lighter than any of the bikes that came after it, it was no lightweight. It was over-forked, over-braked, had AM wheels on it, stem and bars similar to what I run now etc. And I still broke wheels, cranks, forks etc. Pete's Blur experience has been awesome, for the trails he's riding it on. If I took that down what I like to ride I'd likely flat both tires, damage the rims, and so on.  I hear you though, I do still enjoy the idea of having a smaller bike but I always end up building them to survive the trails I want to ride. Now my lighter bike that goes fast and has me itching to ride is my dirt jumper. Just carving the road and cycle paths to the local pumptrack/jumps/bmx track is a hoot and gives me the feeling you get from the shorter travel rig.
