Enduro World Series Round One: Punta Ala, Build-up
500+ entries, pretty much the who's who of MTB. It's a pretty compelling case for the next big thing.

For sale is my 2013 Fox 36 Float RC2 160mm. These are a very rare set in black which you can't currently buy. The fork is approx 2 months old, and condition as a result is good. There are a couple of nicks in the stickers & a few little scuffs on the lowers, but that's all. Tapered steerer, which has been cut at 215mm, so long enough for any bike. They have just come back from being serviced. Only reason i'm considering selling is for a set of Fox 34's to save a bit more weight on the bike.

You could do with with a Dremmel or something similar. I used a plasma cutter at work. I couldn't tell any difference in the flex, never any issues with them cracking either from what I have read elsewhere. The upper & lower linkage on the Sunday is pretty substantial, the brace I imagine made next to bugger all difference, as there have been various versions of the lower DW link to accomodate different shocks.

Sadly my DH bike is for sale. Due to not racing the BDS this year, and getting more into Enduro racing, it seems silly to have this gathering dust in the spare room. As you can see, this is a fairly unique spec bike. Firstly the frame was opened up around the BB area to lose weight, improve mud clearance and ease of adjustment to the rear shock, This is very similar in the approach to the Monster Energy/Iron Horse team did. This is the 4th Sunday I have done this to & there has never been an issue from it. The frame was then re-powdercoated in a lime green/yellow mix to create the unique colour you see. At the same time I made the decision to modify the lower link in order to be able to run the latest Fox RC4 rear shock. All the reviews of this combination of shock & linkage confirm my opinion, it's an incredible ride. Dave Weagle himself also commented on how perfect the RC4 was on the Sunday's DW linkage. Lastly, to bring the bike up to modern standards, I am running a Works Components -1.5 degree headset, to bring the head angle down to 63.5 degrees and lower the BB a touch. The condition of the bike as you can see is very good. Save for a few little uplift marks. The bearings and pivots were all replaced not long before I stopped riding it, and as a result there is zero play in the bike anywhere. Also included in the sale will be a full set of replacement bearings. The full spec of the bike is as follows: Customised Medium 2009 Iron Horse Sunday Factory frame £650 Modified DW link to accept Fox RC4 rear shock RCS 400lb Ti spring £85 Rock Shox Boxxer RC forks £300 Truvative BooBar 750mm bars £35 ODI Ruffian grips Sunline black DM 50mm Stem £25 Shimano XT M785 brakes, 203mm rotors. £150 SRAM X0 9spd shifter £50 SRAM X0 9sped rear mech £50 SDG I Beam seatpost £20 SDG I Fly seat £20 Shimano Saint M810 165mm cranks £80 Shimano BB E13 LG1+ 32-36T chain guide £75 Shimano Ultegra 11-25 rear cassette £20 Burgtec/Mavic 721 wheelset built with DT Swiss DB Spokes £200 Maxxis Minion DHF tyres.

Ibis Debuts New Ripley 29er Trailbike
What relevance is that? A clutch mech does not stop dropped chains or offer the security of a proper full chain device. Seems silly not to include it as an option.
