Fox 34 Talas 26 FIT CTD Fork

$150 GBP
2013 Fox 34 Talas 26 FIT CTD Fork 26" wheel, 150 mm travel, 20 mm axle, tapered steerer tube cut at ~193mm, star nut fitted. Overall the fork is in great condition having been regularly serviced by myself. New seals and foam rings were fitted only 3 months ago and it has just had a strip down, clean and service of the lowers and talas system ready for sale. Internally the fork is perfect. As you can see in the photos there is no stanchion wear at all (indicative of running with dirty oil due to poor maintenance). Talas travel adjust, CTD and rebound adjusters work as expected and there is no bushing play. The FIT damper has no air ingress and is working great. Externally the fork has the usual few stone chips mainly around the axle area, however generally the paintwork is very good and the decals fully intact. No cable rub on the crown, just a slight rub on the blue talas adjuster (shown in photo). The only flaw is a bit of abrasion on the upper talas side stanchion. There are very minor surface scratches in the anodising (5 mm long) which are perfectly smooth to the touch and have never effected the forks performance - no sharp edges, no oil loss, no seal damage. Detailed photos are included. I can honestly say in use you would never know the marks were there and they haven't had any detrimental effect on performance or reliability. £150 to Newcastle/Sunderland area. £160 for UK delivery - Paypal or bank transfer.

Solid Blade Mountain Bike, 26" Enduro/ All Mountain 160mm

$500 GBP
For sale is a Solid Blade, 26" enduro/ all mountain build: One of the fore-runners of the enduro/ big mountain bike market is the Solid Blade which in 2008 saw 3 out of the top 10 Mega-Avalanche finishers riding this bike to glory. This build has plenty of life in it and is still ripping! the clear laquer has marks in it on the top tube and there are plenty of scratches but since the frame is polished aluminum it still looks great! ( see photos) There are no dings or dents and there are no problems with the bikes function. The fork is well reviewed and plush as it always was and has plenty of adjustability. The shock is fit-and-forget it just works well. As do the brakes - they just keep on delivering the power. I don't believe in selling something which is not going to work how it should and have spent a long time making sure the bikes up to standard to sell - to the standard I would expect if I bought it. As such: I have installed new bearings in rear triangle, I serviced the air can on the rear shock, I had the wheels trued and tightened, I bled the front brake as the rear was fine and installed new sintered pads front and rear for the sale, I put in 2 new inner tubes, I serviced the pedals and put in new pins, I checked the chain/ cassette for wear but it has under 100 miles use and around than 0.3% wear, and I put on Continental tyres which have under 50 miles use. I would expect this bike therefore to run well right away without any tinkering needed besides suspension sag set up and I have the adapters for the fork. Frameset - Solid Blade 160-130mm rear Fork - Marzocchi Z1 RC2 ETA Freeride 150mm Shock - Rockshox Monarch 3.1 high volume air - Rebound/ compression adjust Drivetrain - SLX rear/ deore front, 9spd, XT/ Deore shifters, RPM El Toro Cranks, Bash Rear Wheel - Hope Pro 2/ WTB Dual Duty - brass nipples/ db spokes Front Wheel - Giant / WTB Dual Duty - brass nipples/ db spokes Brakes - Hope Mono Mini - new pads, 160mm rotors Chainguide - Blackspire Stinger dual Headset - Chris King Tyres - Continental Mountain King 2.4/2.2 Saddle - WTB Devo titanium Pedals - Crank Brothers 50/50 Get back to me with any questions!

EWS Official Video: Tweedlove Highlights, Rd 3, Scotland
Hit both shoulders like Joe Barnes said he did on that last 20m of track two weeks ago, kind of proud to have crashed like an EWS pro.
