Magura's Four Piston Brake - Sea Otter 2014
those look great. Love my MT8/MartaSL caliper on AM and Louise BAT on my DH bike, but wouldn't mind having those for the DH bike... never have too much power :)

Brake Force One Disc Brake - Review
have you actually tried maguras ? love mine... and the reviews of Martha SL and louise (haven't tracked the latest MT models) have been very positive. Expensive, yes, though I bought a set of latest Louise Bat new for under $160 2 years ago (and a slightly used for $100) for DH bikes. hard to beat that price and power...

Brake Force One Disc Brake - Review
look reminds me somewhat of the magura (caliper) though the MT8 lever are much better looking. Surprised to read so much negative feedback on magura as I've been very happy with them - yes they are expensive but I love their power/modulation and long lever comfort. customer service has been incredible to me - they replaced a pair of 4 years old martha SL lever with brand new MT8 for free when I ran into issues and threw a bleed kit. Try that with shimano ! I have 3 of them (martha SL on AM bike, now MT8/Martha combo, and latest Louise BAT on DH bike (cheap) and very happy. I've tried Formula One (came with bike, not very powerful and noisy as hell) and Hayes Stroker Trail (really inexpensive in a very bad way) and my friends have nothing but problems with avid elixirs.... never tried XT though. Competition is always good. vote with your $

To The Point - UST Rims and Tires
bingo... and this is why stans is so much better (and wide + light rims).

To The Point - UST Rims and Tires
that's what I run as well, but the conti TK 2.2 (non UST, black chili) has to be the worst tire to seal I've had (swiss cheese side walls) - and I tried 3 different ones (thank god for Amazon return). Had to paint the inner walls 3 times with stans glue and let dry before even mounting it. the TK 2.4 (at 1000gr vs 740g for 2.2) have better sidewall leak, but still some work. SP Ground control and others were a snap to run tubeless...

To The Point - UST Rims and Tires
> UST is unnecessary. > Have not had a tire failure(of many different makes) on new and old style Flow rims over the past 6+ years. big proponent of running tubeless as well (2 stans Flow/EX wheels on Trail and DH bike, CB Iodine 3 on Trail) but I have burped the front tire 3 times so far - including 2 hard landing on CB Iodine which caused bad crashes (!) (don't think it was too low pressure) and once on my DH bike (front was pretty low). Tires: TK 2.4 for bike parks, else TK 2.2 and SP ground control 2.1 for trail. On my last Whistler trip I managed to get a 'pinched' flat near the bead (too many fire road section due to tail closing), which sealed right away once I added stans back (was dry) - by comparison my group got about 8 flats tubes so I did much better. Bike also a lot lighter. Tubeless is not all rosy. Starting to think UST bead an rim might have prevented 2 crashes for me so far. I had 819 a while back, but never bothered with UST... heavy rims for such a narrow rim. Much happier with Flow EX

$200 USD
Gravity dropper turbo (see http://gravitydropper.com/gravity-dropper-turbo/) in great condition. Has the new shaft (stronger ALU), re-greased and a new longer cable (so you can run it backward facing) with just a few rides since. Those are super reliable and trivial to take apart (few mechanical parts) to service/grease - unlike hydrolic ones which I had problems with.. only reason for selling is that my next bike came with one and i don't need a backup. paypal + ship, or local cash pickup please. Specs: * 27.2mm (fit any frame) * multi position 0-1-4" drop, 350mm length, left hand side switch * BONUS: will include 2 shims for 30mm and 31.8mm * BONUS include small spare parts -Alain

looks like you are missing 2 spokes in the rear... what year are those deemax and get you still buy spokes for them, or are the thread broken on the rims ? any flat spots preventing tubeless mount ?
