Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by good quality light frame It does not have all the latest buzz-word features like tapered headtube, press-fit BB or post mounted brake, but it's a good quality light frame. I was skeptical about the outcome, but my first bike build came way better than expected. I have nothing to complain about. 17 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Quality For The Money! I bought this so I could build my own bike. The frame is very impressive! It's light, strong and well finished. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this frame to anyone who wanted to build their own bike! 15 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommended I'm 6'8" and struggle to get frames that are big enough, but the XXL 23" version of this frame is fantastic. Nice long reach and a tall seat tube, with very good geometry overall for somebody my height. The frame looks and feels to be of a high quality, and seems strong and sturdy when riding. The red paint job is nice too, not that I've seen much of it recently due to the wet muddy weather. My only minor criticism of the entire frame is that the rear disk brake mount on the frame didn't seem quite right. I had to use 1mm thick washers to lift the brake caliper slightly further away from the frame because the brake pad spring was catching the top of the rotor. It might just be my setup, but I didn't have the problem with the same brakes on my previous frame. Got it in the CRC January sale and given the scarcity of big frames for tall people, plus how impressed I am with it, I'm about to order a second one to store away for a couple of years. 14 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing frame What an amazing frame . Truly a very ridged frame that can take a beating on the hardest of trails . Cannot say anything bad . Love the frame and a very good choice 06 January 2014

Answer: 
This frame is a standard 26" wheel MTB frame. As a general rule of thumb, if a frame/ bike does not state its wheel size it is safe to assume it is the 26" standard. 29er and the new 650b frames will usually be titled/ coded with the wheel size in the product name.

Answer: 
Yes; the Blast frame runs a 44mm Headtube so will accept the Cane Creek 40 series or any of the options linked below.
The cover option is up to you; it refers to the height of the top cap (short = 8mm, tall = 15mm).
