Hello PB! Up for sale is my Frankenstein bike! This bike has two different configurations to be used as either a trail bike or XC bike and is very good at both. I currently have it set up as a trail bike which is: Drivetrain: SRAM XX1 with X01 casette (chain replaced 5 rides ago) this will come with 30T, 32T, and 34T XX1 chainrings to change the setup! Fork: Rockshox SiD XX w/ handlebar remote lockout on left hand (I will include the service kit and manuals RS provided) Brakes: Shimano XT with IceTech 160mm rotors front and rear Wheels: Roval Control SL 29 (new rear wheel with 5 rides on it thanks to specialized warranty) Cockpit: SWORKS mountain stem (I believe to be 90mm length?) and Truvativ Noir T30 carbon flat bars @700mm width Seatpost: bike is currently using a Thomson Elite 27.2 dropper post with 125mm travel($400+) but will also come with an SWORKS 2 bolt carbon seat post Saddle: Specialized Phenom Pro Carbon 143mm (carbon rail and shell) Tires: bike is currently wearing Specialized Captain Control 29x2.2s but I am including a new set of SWORKS Captain 29x2.2s so it be set up lighter. Extras: it will come with two Whiskey Components carbon water bottle cages, because water is nice and I have no need for them. For most of the components I have all of the original packaging, so if you would like it I can definitely give it to you (I.e. Manuals, warranty stuff, etc.) The frame was damaged before I rebuilt the bike and it was repaired by Craig Calfee of Calfee Design down in Santa Cruz and it has been just as great as ever. The only issue I've been dealing with since then is a creaking noise coming from the bottom bracket area when is the bike is under torque. To try and solve this issue I pulled the cranks, regreased everything, and put a new bottom bracket in (a month ago) but to no avail. So if you want an amazing bike and tons of extras, this is your chance. ALSO, I AM WILLING TO SELL EVERYTHING AND KEEP THE FRAME: Full, complete bike with extras: $2,500 All parts but no frame: $2,000 Hit me with offers, I'm eager to start a new build! (NO TRADES, BUYER PAYS SHIPPING)

Hello PB! Up for sale is my brand new (5 rides) Trek Slash 8. First off, this bike is SICK. The geometry is dialed and it goes downhill like a bat out of hell. I've never felt more comfortable or confident on a bike going downhill than I do on this bike. The bike, due to its very low usage is in new condition (apart from a scratch on the derailleur cage) so this thing is set to go. I also made a lot of really nice functioning upgrades because out of the box, I feel the build isn't entirely complete. The upgrades include: -A new set of Bontrager XR4 Team Issue 650Bx2.35 tires set up tubeless -I swapped the original crap Shimano rotors to IceTech rotors (front/rear) - I also upgraded the stock 2x drivetrain to the awesome Oneup Components 42T 1x10 drivetrain, which performs very similarly to X01. I will have the brand new front shifter and derailleur and old chain ring, so you can swap it if you'd like. This bike is bulletproof and has a really nice build on it with all SLX or up, and full Rockshox suspension with a Pike dual position fork and a Rockshox Monarch Plus Debonair, and a Rockshox Reverb Stealth dropper post. I love this bike and I don't need to sell it at all, but I need the funds as my car's transmission just gave out. Price is negotiable, but NO TRADES.

Pinkbike has been pretty boring this last week, but this video actually made me a bit more pumped than rampage did.. This is fucking sick, I've never seen riders shred this hard.
