Great condition, protected with proper 3M 8672 Leading Edge Protective Tape. Serviced by Fanatyk Co Whistler. Purchased Oct 2012 and only used during summer (too busy skiing in winter), serviced and stored in a dry garage. 90% tread left on the tyres. Includes new Santacruz grease gun and grease There is also the option of an XTR M988 Trail wheelset and XTR M988 Trail brakes for a $600 up charge (ie total price $4900). Also have two brand new Continental Mountain King II Protection 26" x 2.4" tyres that you can have for $110 for the pair with the bike. The stickiest, fast rolling, grippy and long lasting tyre I have found after riding here for six years. No time wasters please, this is a great bike that is being sold so it goes to someone who will ride it not to cover some credit card debt. It is being replaced by a new Nomad and I just know that it will sit in the garage and rarely get used.

I don't care if you are a pro - if you are off the bike get off the track. What an amazing run! What an animal to keep pedalling in that mud!

Profile Racing Helm Stem - Review
@ glasvagas: I can think of four immediate reasons: 1. Bbecause the customer can see what grade the bolts are. 2. Immediately commercially available with high quality and relatively low cost. 3. They are less likely to strip out when being ham-handed by those that don't read instructions or insist on doing everything with a multi-tool. 4. They will probably never fail (the stem is made in the Land of the Free and Home of the Litigious after all).

Video: BOS Suspension's New DH Fork
@rakeothon not strictly true there is a service agent in Las Vegas. Most proper suspension tuners can service them as well even if they have not been to BOS (France) to do the course, which is something that BOS insist on. Re the Idylle RaRe and Void: despite not being able to push the suspension like the pros can one can immediately feel the benefits, the small bump sensitvity and compliance is out of this world, the suspension stays in the mid travel better then my Fox 40 and RC4 do, somehow when I use the full travel I don't even know that I have done so until I look at the o-ring/s at the end of a run. Also the combination has led to the best balanced feel I have had on my V-10 (third year on one now and three different suspension set ups; V-10.4C Fox 2012 FIT RC2 & RC4 Ti with Ti spring, V-10.5C Fox 2013 FIT RC3 & RC4 and V-10.5C BOS 2014). Running exactly the same set up as last year except for the new suspension so far easier to notice the difference in just the suspension. Also only running 22% sag BTW feeling better control on the bike but way less juddering into the hands and arms. If you can afford it it is amazing.

Garmin Edge 800 - Review
K-Edge has delrin insert which is replaceable but a very good point. Barfly 3.0 an improvement over 2.0 which hung out the front. Need to sell my Barfly 2.0 to a roadie.

As much as it is more work for the bike companies a bit better size specific and region specific options would be a great choice. Size specific, maybe have normal bars and grips on Medium and above. Region specific? a chain device with a boomerang like the Blackspire TwintyX is a sensible addition for BC Style single track, a clutch can only do so much especially on a 2x or 3x set up. Men's frame suggestions, sure not bad if you are selling just the frame but as the bike will most probably be built to fit a lady then it is still a ladies' bike when you sell it regardless of the frame (ie saddle, grips etc).

Learn to spell please. One does not "loose" feeling in one's fingers. Repeat: "Lose", "Lose", "Lose" for example "I lose at spelling. Whilst we are at it the things on the wheels linked calipers and levers are "brakes" which allow "braking" Not "breaking" as in "You are breaking my ability to read your articles with your s&^t spelling"!! Just saying!

Barfly or K-Edge. Prefer the K-Edge stem mount as it puts the GPS centrally over the stem.
