The perfect wheel set for anyone who wants a lightweight (1450g) bombproof wheel and still has a 26" wheel bike. Front hub is a 20mm, rear is 142x12. Front wheel has some scratches on the rim while the rear wheel is brand new unused from warranty. (Took a reasonable sized drop to flat landing rim first on a sharp rock, this caused a small crack in the rim allowing me to ride out. The same impact would have completely demolished an aluminium wheel) If you are not sure if this wheel set is right for you I have never owned a stronger wheel, they have comparable strength to your standard aluminium downhill wheel with the weight of a lightweight XC wheel. Front and rear hub bearings are mint

I am selling my Trusty 2013 Rocky Mountain Slayer.If you are looking for a bike that climbs well and descends even better look no further. Buying this bike is a step towards becoming a strava LEGEND! I have added an after market frame dent on the down tube by the bottom bracket, this was caused by my bike being attacked by a rock at Kicking Horse, Don't worry the rock ended up in much worse shape. Bike has the regular scratches expected from being ridden hard for 2 years but everything is cosmetic. Both front and rear suspension has been serviced, Pivot bearings have been replaced, new Drive train, and the bike is running perfectly! Parts List: Fork: Rockshox Lyric Shock: Rockshox monarch plus Brakes: Shimano XT (NEW) Shifters/ derailleurs: Shimano XT Cranks: Race Face Turbine 24-36 Cassette: Shimano XT 11-36 Chain: Shimano XTR Wheels: DT Swiss E1.6 Straight pull wheel set (Star Ratchet Free hub) Bars: Race Face sixC 785mm wide Stem: Race Face Turbine 70mm long Tires: Maxxis Minion DHF front, Maxxis Ardent Rear, or your choice of numerous other roached out tires. Pedals: Shimano XT Local pickup Recommended. If you live close by (~2-3 hours) in an area with sick riding I can most likely road trip with the bike to drop it off but only if you are 100% certain you want it.

2010 X-Fusion vengeance HLR fork, adjustable high speed, low speed compression, and rebound adjust Air preload. Fork is in great condition, and runs extremely smooth. for those of you who don't know this fork is pretty much identical to a fox 36 prefer to sell locally, but can make agreements otherwise

Pinkbike Product Picks
Are the Trail Kings really that much better than the Mountain Kings? My bike came stock with mountain kings and I have honestly never tried a shittier tire. What i hated about the tires was for one thing they would slip out at any sign of moisture on the trail, It pretty much felt like I forgot how to bike. Just to top it off the tires have butt loads rolling resistance. The review for the trail king is the exact opposite experience that I had with my mountain kings. Did they really screw up that bad. All I can say was switching my Moiuntain kings to Highrollers was probably the best upgrade that I made to my bike.

Pinkbike Poll: How many Gears Do You Need?
This man speaks the truth. As someone who rides almost every day during the summer climbing big hills to get to the big descents, I find my self burning through chains every 1.5 - 2 months with a 10 speed chain. 9 speed would last 2-2.5 months, depending on the conditions. Note when I say burning through chains I am talking about wearing them to 0.75% on a park tool chain checker not snapping them
