Rims are both Stans ZTR flow EX 29er rims. 25mm wide, 32 hole. Spokes front and rear are 14g straight non-butted. Alloy nips'. The front hub is a Novatech hub branded as Ibis. I Currently have the 15mm caps on it but i have 20mm caps for it too. The front wheel is in good shape. No broken spokes, rim spins true with a slight little wobble that can totally be trued out, bearings feel great too. The rear is a Speed Tuned hub which is sold through Ibis on there bikes OE. 142x12mm. The rear wheel is hammered. One broken spoke, remaining spokes vary in tension. A couple flat spots in the rim. Rear free hub will need to be replaced as it no longer engages and one bearing is blown (By blown i mean there are various bits of the bearing rattling around in the free hub body). You can purchase as new fee hub body directly from Ibis on their website. I believe it is about $60. The other bearings in the hub feel good though. With a bit of mechanical aptitude and some wheel building knowledge i'm sure you could get the rear back to a reasonable state. If your looking for a back-up wheel set this could be good too.

Tioga Spyder Outland Seat - Review
I rode an old seat with no padding and a bunch of holes drilled in to achieve a similar idea for a short while. It wasn't bad, and i wouldn't be surprised if this was a comfortable saddle too. The only problem is your buddies will never let you live it down if you show up to ride with it. Trying to explain how a cheese-grater looking seat is comfortable is no easy task...

"Dayum girl, look at you!" This is what all your riding buddies will be saying once you get this fork on your bike. This is indeed, a 2015, Fox 34, Float, 140mm travel, 29er (Stay with me), Factory Series fork with a 51mm offset, 15mm thru axle, CTD FIT damper, Kashima Bling Bling Coated, A tapered steer tube cut down to 6 5/8ths of one inch and is colored black. If you just said that all in one breath, you my friend, are the type of person i would like to go get a beer with and thus, also an ideal candidate for a fork of this caliber. Stanchions are is flawless condition; 10/10, would bang. Brand spankin' new fork seals (About a half hour of ride time) with some fresh 20wt gold oil in there too. Stickers have a couple scratches but hey, that's what happens when you go ride mountain bikes. I rode this here sophisticated piece of equipment on the front of my Ibis Ripley and let me tell you something bud: This is the real deal. This isn't no OEM take-off either. No indecisive travel setting AKA Talas. This is a Float, you know Float what that stands for? I don't know either, but you're gonna have 140mm of travel once a year for 365 days. This fork will put some chest on your hair and peaches on your fuzz. Buckle up and send that jump you've been looking at for the past week, cupcake. I am passing on the torch to the next person who feels worthy. The chosen one must pay shipping though.

When will 2015 frames (higher end models at least) actually be in stock for bike shops? We're 4 months into 2015 and last time our shop called we were told frames won't be in stock for another month or so
