Taming Mountains: My Trans-Provence
Good article Matt. It was great to meet you and ride with you for part of the week. Good riding skills and great photos. Have a good month in Europe and stay safe. Might see you back there next year (if I can get a place).

Brand new in the box (cleats included) Shimano PDM785 Trail pedals. Cheaper price than the M8020 model and essentially the same. These are an excellent trail pedal, good SPD action and a good platform especially with Shimano shoes like the M200 or AM9. These XT level models have an excellent reputation for being almost indestructible, good bearings and are rebuildable. Selling because I was given a set of M8020 pedals which are a little wider and thinner. No low ball offers please.

New Raceface Turbine 440mm 31.6 x 150 mm travel dropper post, new in box. I bought as a spare for 2016 Trans-Provence due to hearing horror stories of failed dropper posts but it was not needed or used during the race. Still in box. Has been test fitted but has new cable housing and a new Shimano Sil-tec gear cable included. Firm price as this is $50 cheaper than Dunbar (best Canadian price) and $100 cheaper than retail and you don't have to pay tax.

Renthal's new 35mm Bars and Stems - Review
@hamncheez: Agree. 35 mm bar and stem with new V-10. Tried them for two weeks (12 full days riding) and then went back to Answer DH Carbon 31.8 and Thomson DM stem. The 35 mm bar that arrived with my Nomad did not even last two days, too stiff and wrong sweep angles. Nice try Mr 35 mm 'standard' but a well made 31.8 mm carbon bar at 780-800 mm wide, with trim marks and about 220 grams keeps everyone happy. Just stiff enough to be precise, forgiving enough to prevent arm pump and the vibration dampening properties of carbon so you don't need to fill your bar with foam or some buzz word technology that sounds like it was stolen from the sex toy industry.

Pivot Switchblade - First Look
@jon123rjk: And SCB send a clear 3M patch kit for cable rub areas anyway.

Vitus Sommet Carbon - First Look
@mattwragg: But it is not Nomad and Vitus don't have the long term development history and proven reliability that Santacruz Bicycles have. In addition, any one looking at the US$/£ exchange rate and having a kindergarten level maths ability, can work out that UK SCB buyers are getting screwed some where and it is certainly not all by the government on import duty. CRC also get preferential pricing on SRAM hence a complete build and it does not seem that they are passing on that saving with their direct to consumer sales model. Less margin leading to more sales might help them whilst they are getting established as a brand.

2015 KS Lev Integra 31.6 mm x 125 mm seatpost. Would suit most modern carbon frames (31.6mm seat tube) and particularly small and medium frames that probably don't have the room to run a 150mm dropper. Excellent condition. I received this as a warranty repair replacement for an actuator upgrade but repair centre sent me a 125 mm instead of the 150 mm dropper that I sent them. I have now re-installed the 150mm dropper so don't need this seat post. New cable and housing (un-used). Includes original remote (un-used) that integrates with an ODI grip and Southpaw remote (with grip tape thumb patch #doyouevenendurobro). I have used KS seat posts trouble free for over five years (LEV and LEV Integra) they are an under rated product and certainly more reliable than a certain other well known brand. Prefer to sell locally but will ship if buyer pays post.
