Turn your 10spd cassette into a 1x11 equivalent range for a lot less... I've been running this configuration for over a year now with no issues. Had an extra cog, selling the bike so I no longer need it. This adds a 42T to your 11-36 SRAM cassette (take the 14T or 17T out) see http://bythehive.com/e-thirteen/components/extended-range-ex-cog and this for compatibility http://bythehive.com/download/5474/ These sell for $70+.

This is a 32T 104BCD (standard) narrow/wide chainring by Chromag that was used for a short while on a 1x11 carbon bike. Selling because I need a lower ratio. while the black coating rubbed off, the teeth are still full thickness and show no wear - the chain that was used didn't even stretch (matches brand new one I measured). This is a higher quality than RaceFace NW rims I've had before and much better fit on 11 spd chain (works with 11/10/9). the only chainring that licenses SRAM X-SYNC for tighter chain retention (see http://www.chromagbikes.com/chainrings/sequence) they sell around $60 - save yourself some dough. ship extra.

XTR M980 crankset, 180mm - GXP style (not BB30) - good for taller people or those who want max power while standing up during climbs. Some shoe rub but good working condition. Currently mounted with 32T single Chromag NW X-Sync ring with little use - just black finish removed, still full thickness. Chromag license X-Sync ($99 rings) from SRAM - much better than other NW offering like E13, Raceface, etc...). REDUCED to sell: $140 for cranks only (can be used 2x 3x), $170 with ring which I'm listing separately as well (will update once gone). Ship extra.

Roval Traverse SL Fattie Wheelset - Review
enduro29erHack, how are they holding up ? I fit somewhat in that category (210#, tend to plow rather than bunny hope over things). Just got an Enduro 29 that came with those wheels so hoping they would last - worry about spoke count though. Running Mobby Nic Evo/Snake 2.35 (22psi) front, Rock Razor EVO/Snake (25psi) rear - only have 2 rides so far. Procore sounds interesting as I managed to destroy a 26" DH derby rim on my 4th day at whistler earlier this year (tire had loud pop, rim was exposed soon afterward - Derby did not want to crash replace (lame). Spec list #125 crash replace, but hopefully I won't have to find that out.

Tech Tuesday - Specialized Command Post Blacklite Maintenance
Update: I was able to 'fix it' (had to get a new seal head + the shim kits to properly reinstall new one at the end) by building a made up shim that was narrow and RAMPED so I could jam it back into the grove. Went to hardware store and I used a plastic 1" or so table hole cover (similar to what you use for cable covers on your desk) that had a lip I cut out and sanded down to the right thickness. The shim ramp up is critical to get the seal (hard plastic) to go over the bottom groove - took a lot of hammering in my case as it wasn't such a good fit so it ended up damaging the seal but I got it off. then bought a new seal kit and proper shims (Spec took forever to send those!). In the end you might be better off just sending it in if you don't like to tinker.

The Passion People - Magura Factory Visit
Magura has been great for warranty more than once and love their brakes. I bought a used bike with Martha SL - best brake I had - and when it came time to swap to a newer carbon bike, I kept the martha on them as they were much better than the 2 others I tried. 5 years later I started having some air/bleeding issues (and yeah I did crash twice when that happened), called Magura USA and they promptly replaced the calipers with new MT8 (silver version) including a bleed kit (even though I had one and extra olives). They didn't have to since I wasn't the original owner and it was past their 5y period. Bravo! Year+ later I had a weird piece of membrane show during a bleeding - which freaked me out (didn't want to ride it) so I called them and again they took care of me. I now have the MT5 which I can't wait to try. Have been using the louise BAT on my DH bike (they have so much power not sure I need quad piston) and have been flawless for 3 seasons. I use Shimano ice Tech rotors which I know a thinner, but like the cooling idea better. You just need a bit more fluid in the MT for them...Occasionally I run out and get air when they pads get to the metal. Also the plastic bleed screes on MT can strip so easily (bad design). Only down sides.

First Look: Pivot Cycles Mach 429 Trail
boost - Yike...like we need yet another axle sizing. Ghee, What's wrong with the original 2 sizes: 135 or 150 ? carbon rims are so stiff now, you might not even need wider than 135 on 29", and if you do what's wrong with the DH sizing...
