I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike. I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride it where I like.

I am selling the Frame + shock + rear wheel + bottom bracket + chainguide + dropper seatpost + headset + front derailer 2009 GT Sanction 2.0: Size small for riders 5'4" to 5'8". Bike has only been ridden since 2011, and has been expertly maintained and serviced after every ride. I am selling it because I'm moving to something less aggressive and shorter travel as I'm focusing more and more on climbing and XC riding rather than descending. Almost everything is in great or excellent condition, with no mechanical issues to speak of except for a few those noted below regarding the dropper post. If you have any other questions, or want more pictures, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help! Shock: 2014 Manitou Swinger Expert (Not the fashionable choice, but it's been an awesome performer, with not even a full season of use on it: helluva lot better than the DHX air that it used to have too!) Wheel: Mavic EN321 laced to unbranded (Formula) 12x135mm maxle hub (No boost anywhere to be found here!) Chaingude: Blackspire stinger (top part has been filed down to allow for servicing bearings without removal of the chainguide or bottom bracket) BB: Shimano Hollowtech II threaded BB (no press-fit!) Front derailer: Shimano SLX Seatpost: Kindshock Supernatural I-beam (Serviced at the end of last riding season at Cyclepath Kelowna, but still has issues with not always returning to full height without a nudge. Not major, but worth noting.) Headset: Origin8 sealed bearing headset (uses same parts as FSA)

I want to be 5 years-old again and have one of those First Bike sled/ski balance bikes! It's 2015, let's have that time machine going; chop chop! Also in before verbal violence concerning the Kranked e-bike kit.

A joy to read! Always immensely fun to take a trip through the facilities of the folks that make bikes work. Maybe some day we'll be able to see into the Fort Knox that is Shimano too!

HR/fittness monitors in the helmet? If they're not too expensive, I'd be very willing to give one of those a look. Chest straps are...annoying to say the least.

6 Urban DH Bike Checks - Valparaiso Cerro Abajo
Very, very interested to keep hearing about the BOX components. Wanna see these guys succeed, even if only to throw some new life into the drivetrain market, and hopefully shake things up a bit with some more players.
