Just got a blade

I'm lucky enough to live in san diego up the street from the FLX shop. Went and tried the bikes and took advantage of the open box deals they had going to get a Blade for a bit of a discount. They were super friendly.

One thing I would note for others is that I'm short, 5'6" and the trail felt better to me than the blade, and in talking it through with the guys.. the handlebars on the blade are very wide. So, in making it more friendly to me i'll be swapping the handlebars out

You can often cut the handlebars down to a width you prefer. It's done on mtbs all the time - some bars are even pre-marked to make it easier to cut.
