Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
I would disagree on the small markup. My last two frames I were brand new, last years models and retailers were blowing them out 50% off! I keep hearing about small profit margins but im less convinced every time I research it.

Bought this 2012 carbine brand new and used it for about 1.5 seasons. Lightly used and it's never seen a bike park. Has adjustable 5.5-6.0" of travel. Carbon Fiber frame. Geometry: HA is 67, Top tube is 23", and BB is 13.7.....with a 160mm fork up front. Selling because I'm trying the new T275. And the ONLY reason I like it better is it has a steeper seat angle. That's it...this carbine is just as good dh as the t275, if not a little more comfortable due to the slacker seat angle. (but highly recommend a 1 degree headset to slacken it out to 66 degrees). I'm 5'9" and it fits really well with a 50mm stem. Probably wouldn't recommend more than 5'10" for this frame. Pics show it's general condition but only a few scuffs here and there. The Good.. ALL new suspension bearings!....super smooth. The upgraded monarch plus only has two rides and isn't even broken in yet. All parts for 650b wheel are included....drops, 12 mm axle, and brake adapter. The Bad.. (One thing... about the derailleur hanger...it's .5 mm out of true. Easily fixable but I don't want to mess with it. It barely affects the chain line in the small ring, no mis shifts or anything...just a little noisy. but the chain line perfect when in the middle ring up front.) And no iscg tabs....but easily remedied by a 1x11 or a clutch derailleur which is Intense's original reason for omitting them at first.. I ran a clutch and 2x10 and never dropped a chain. Includes seat post clamp but no post as shown. Thanks for looking and lmk if any questions. Im very fair on shipping 35-55 depending on your location.

2015 rockshox monarch plus debonair extra volume air can. Tune is Med Rebound and Medium Compression. High Volume air can, not low. Bought brand new and used three times. Selling because I got a different frame. Biggest thing I noticed with the debonair is the increase in small bump sensitivity. The extra volume deceases stiction in the first third of the travel making it much more sensitive. And definitely noticeable. Just a few marks from hardware instillation....and a small mark on the top of valve stem. No biggie. The stanchion is flawless and this operates perfectly. Add $5 for shipping to lower 48 states...thanks.

Since my switch to 650b I've got these two tires FS. 1-Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.3 trailstar compound with snakeskin sidewall. Tubeless ready. All side knobs are intact and I trimmed the center row of knobs to decrease rolling resistance. This tire is starting to show wear but still has a lot of life left in it. I used it for a front for about two seasons and never had any problems with it. Figure it's worth $15. Looks weird in the photo due to vacuum seal when I deflated it. 2-Maxxis Ardent 2.25 Exo sidewall. Used as a rear but much newer and barely showing wear. Again...no problems and makes a killer rear tire. Figure it's worth $35. Add $7 shipping and you've got arguably one of the best all mountain tire set up. Thanks for looking!
