I haven't ridden the new Blur, but I'd guess its quite different than the Tallboy, based on my experience here:

TIL, mid-July is Geometron Week on NSMB.com.

Bike Weight vs Bike Geometry - July 15, 2021, 9:47 a.m.

Sure... but look at WC XC bikes.

"Are bike fit and a comfortable pedalling position more important than bike weight?"

Bike fit/pedalling position are independent of weight, which you kinda touch on, but as its stated above, that question makes no sense to me.

Ha, no worries. Yeah, the Spur has 50mm less travel on either end, and is 6lbs lighter.

The Spur is miles faster up anything. It makes pedaling on the Altitude feel like you've dropped anchor. 

The Spur is, however, not the bike to be on when you get into properly heinous trails or big moves.

If you want "data" - I'm consistently faster down Boogieman on the Spur with a DHF/Rekon than I am on my Altitude with Assegai/DHRII.

I'll be interested in your longterm thoughts on the remote lockout. 

Its obviously a must-have for XC racing, but the SiD/SiDluxe are *quite* locked out when activated. I find myself using only using it on paved climbs. For the average buyer, the remote seems like a bunch of weight they don't need. And I hate the rats nest of cables hanging off the front [glances at Scott...]

I had an over-forked 200....2? air-shocked Kona Bear De-lux that I overforked, 1x'd with the appropriate orange MRP rollers, raced dual slalom on, and rode trail on for a few years. It was quite fun! 

unfortunately if died after Delta put a huge dent in the top tube.

"I wonder if the people waxing poetic about old bikes would still feel the same if they actually rode one back-to-back with a modern bike?"

I don't think any of them would.

If they can survive a year in Bootleg they can survive anything.
