Default Need some advice about a new full suspension mtn bike


I am currently riding a hard tail mountain bike and I am interestd in
upgrading to a full suspension. I have heard that the Santa Cruz blur
is quite an awesome bike, but the price is a bit out of my range.

I am willing to spend up to 2k for one, but I definitely want the best
bike for my buck. Any suggestions?

I was thinking of maybe using my HT for a commuter - I suppose I could
switch out components. My HT is a mix of LX and XT parts (kind of
dated). My front fork is an older Marzocchi - although it still works
well, I think I'd need a new one.

Since my components are a little out of date, wouldn't it be better to
buy a whole new bike?
