Has anyone else looked at the Blaze and wondered how the price hiked with around 500 over the pro model? Yes, it's "limited", but that can surely not be the only reasoning

In Canada the Pro is $5700 and Blaze is $5400. I went with the Blaze over the pro because:
-Prefer rockshox suspension
-did not like tires, short bars, or lockout on the Pro. Would have to spend too much to make the bike how I want it.
-prefer the 140mm fork travel

You do take a hit on weight with the wheelset on the Blaze, but coming from a 34lbs aluminum Enduro bike, it’s like night and day for me.

One thing is that its too bad it doesnt use the SRAM UDH for such a new bike.

Yip, loving the Blaze. I just did not pay enough attention to the spec sheet before getting it.
Guess supply is a factor, but here in Auz all the models landed at the same time a month or so ago.

i ended up switching out the shock to a 3 position DPS and removed the cables and grips.

i bought an interim shock while i had FOX convert mine. don’t recommend that option. cost so much

i have slightly used DPS elite if anyone is interested

Anyone know what size the headset is? I'd like to replace it with something without a lock block.

OK, please don't laugh. This is my first bike. Razz
I wanna disassemble the lower pivot as I suspect it causes the creaking the bike has had since day 1. I assume it needs to be greased (?)

In order to access the bolt, do i simply pull the cable on each side of the round plastic thingie? (pull it straight out?) I tried a little bit while wiggling but it didn't move. I was afraid to apply much force though.
