With certain members of the Dirt office being on the tall side, and the Blender only coming in one size, there’s been a considerable amount of hunting around over the years for a similar bike in a larger size, but such a thing doesn’t seem to exist. That made us realise just how unique the Blender is, and for those that it fits it’s almost impossible to beat for hooning about. You can jump it, you can take it to a trail centre, you can rag it down a DH track, you can cut up traffic round town on it... it just makes you smile whatever you do on it, and we love bikes that make you do that. It must be a combination of the build and the geometry that makes it so good, but whatever it is we like it...a lot.
