Ask Pinkbike: Used Carbon, Shoe Advice, Replacement Cranks and Super Gravity Tires
If you're gonna buy a HD, just get the "performance" one honestly. Cheap, last well, good tread, and while not technically tubeless, they work readily.

2014 Felt Compulsion LT3, size small (16 inch) almost like new with just a few tiny scuffs on the handlebar caps and drive-side chainstay. That's it. It's set up tubeless (the proper way, not ghetto'd!), and is waiting for the perfect rider to throw a leg over it and shred! This bike is in like new, has never been wrecked, and has less than a dozen rides on it. After every one of those few rides it was meticulously cleaned, detailed, and babied. It climbs and descends better than any bike I've owned ('07 c'dale prophet, 08 compulsion, '09 GT sanction, '13 pivot mach 5.7), and is all in all a fantastic piece of carbon fiber and aluminum with 2 wheels on it. So if it's such a fantastic bike, you my be wondering just why I'm selling it. Well, it's not by choice, that's for sure! I bought this bike while back home from college on winter break in early December. At the time it fit PERFECTLY and I thought for sure I finally had THE bike that would be mine for years to come. I got just a few rides in before break was over and I had to return to Canada for college. I locked this up in the family garage, covered it with a tarp and blankets to keep dust and dings away, and went back to school with spirits high, and eager to finish the semester and return home to my new baby. Unfortunately my body decided that would not be the case, and after a small growth spurt, this black-and-orange enduro-matic, all mountain-tastic bicycle is too small. As you can imagine, I'm not super happy about that, but the bike's gotta get sold if I can even hope to afford a new bike in the proper size. I know nobody likes to see "THIS BIKE RETAILS FOR $XXXXX AMOUNT!" in ads, but this bike costs $4000 new, and apart from a few tiny scuffs and a little tiny wear on the rear tire, it's like buying a new bike. I have kept every single piece of owner's information included with the bike, every manual: everything. Bottomless tokens for the fork, spare metal cable clips if you want to change the cable routing, even a few orange anodized aluminum bolts for stuff! Specifications Weight (with Shimano clipless pedals and tubeless): 28 pounds, 4 ounces. Frame: Compulsion LT3 Carbon (Felt calls it "UHC Performance" if marketing terms matter to you!) front triangle, aluminum rear triangle, THREADED 73mm bottom bracket: no press-fit silliness Size: 16" (Small; fits up to 5'7". I'm no longer 5'7" which makes me sad) Fork: Rockshox Pike RC (Rebound, compression. Charger damper, includes bottomless tokens) Rear shock: Rockshox Monarch RT Shifters: SRAM X7 Rear Derailer: SRAM X9 type 2 Front Derailer: SRAM X7 Cranks SRAM X7 2-36-Bash Pedals: Shimano clipless or Animal BMX BPE flat pedal: your choice! Brakes: Magura MT2, 200mm rotors front and rear Stem: Felt 60mm, ultralight top cap and carbon spacers Bars: Felt bars: 740mm wide, 1/2" rise Seatpost: KS E-Ten 100mm dropper, 30.9 diameter Saddle: Felt-branded saddle with cro-moly rails. Nothing fancy, but lightweight with a great shape and pretty darn comfy! Wheels: WTB Speed Disc i23 (Tubeless!) Tires: Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 (set up tubeless with fresh sealant) Rear hub spacing: 12x142, shimano style BELL: IT HAS A BELL.
