For sale is my 2012 Fit Eddie 3 in flat black and teal. It's a 5 tube cromo frame with fully sealed bearings all around. The bike is pretty much stock other than the Fit DLR drop stem, black KMC chain, and Revenge Flow pegs. I've kept the bike in superb shape (bike mechanic owned), with no dents and only a few scratches from an airplane trip to Vancouver and very, very light grinding (which I touched up with paint to prevent rusting). I'd love to keep this thing, but all my riding buddies sold their bikes and I'm just a loner on a BMX now. It retailed for $800 last summer without any of the extra parts. I believe I can also include a Fit Top Load stem (if I can find it), and an extra chain if you want it. Let me know if you need any more pictures. Looking to get $500, will ship globally, but you'll have to pay for it (shouldn't be more than $50 if you're in Canada). This bike will get the looks, and is as solid as the day it was bought, maybe even more so.

Hands down the funniest thread I've ever read on pinkbike.

Basic rule of thumb for the rear is around your body weight (or 25% sag when you gently sit on your bike), and for the DJ1 you're looking at 30-45 PSI for a 150 to 200 lb rider, but I can see running these guys a little stiffer for better street action. 65 is technically pushing it to like a 250 lb rider, but if you like it stiff, do it up. Just a heads up that some marz run at 15 PSI, so make sure you don't have one of those models so you don't blow your seals.

Swatch Rocket Air - Replay
OK, they need to get rid of quarters at the end of the course. Sods just had the sickest run (triple tailwhip??) and comes out with a 57 because he slid out on the pointless little flair that everybody does at the end.

For sale is my Norco Empire 5. It is a Short frame size, but I'm 6'0" and love how it fits me. The bike is a 2009, but was bought brand new in late 2011. It's been mechanic owned and is in fantastic shape. The bike is mainly stock, with some key upgrades bringing it to around the 32lb mark. I put on the Fox Talas so it is a capable downhiller at 160mm or travel, or a sick pump track/dirt jumper at 100mm with the back locked out. I upgraded to a Deity/DMR cockpit, and got some nice blue Straitline levers for better brake stiffness and some bling. Other than that, the bike is mainly stock, but is one of my favourites I've owned; I've just been finding I've been looking to do more XC riding, and this fella ain't quite cutting it. The pic is a little older as I haven't taken the bike out of winter storage yet, so it doesn't show the brake levers and shorter seat post (fork is at full travel in this pic). No trades, buyer pays shipping, Canadians preferred, don't plan on going any lower than $1500, seeing how the fork itself was almost worth that much. Thanks for looking!

To the Point: Cartridge Bearings
Scandium rider is correct. Most decent shops don't charge more than a 50% margin, and often much less on small parts. And on the ceramic note, from my personal experience, ceramic bearings spin waayyyy nicer than steel. A lot more expensive, but it's pretty sweet when your wheel legit takes like 10 minutes to stop spinning haha
