LOL I forgot they have like a 3.6% alcohol limit on drinks. That's a lot of near-beer!

Darren Berrecloth at Rampage, Ask Me Anything!
Just wanted to say I love your Hornby Island video. I watch it almost every time before I go for a ride. I gets me so fired up, I get goose bumps just thinking about it. Totally encapsulates the feeling of what it means to connect with mother nature with a bike. You're the man.

Up for listing is a USED EASTON EX90 XC 26 INCH WHEELSET. 1 1/2 seasons of use primarily for racing with some training/casual use. Front wheel is in better condition as it was used only about 50% of the time I owned it (it's easier to swap wheels for certain trail conditions instead of tires especially for tubeless setups). There are a few small scratches on the rim, nothing really noteworthy. The front hub is a QR15mm. spins well, but it has a "gritty" feel and I'd say the bearings, although functional and useable as is, are about 60% life. The rear wheel has the majority of wear and tear. All the photo close ups of the rim blemishes are of the rear wheel rim. The rear hub is a 9mm QR, similar to the front, spins well and is functional, but again has a "gritty" feel. The life on the rear hub bearings is closer to 40%. The rear hub is the M1-221 and is eligible for the Easton Hub upgrade, the current hub bearings are the original. The rear wheel has a spoke replaced with a Easton Haven spoke (identical design, just black color). QR15mm axle in the front 9mm QR in the back. The rear QR skewer is included although not pictured, it shows signs of regular use. Both front and rear hub bearing feel used feel like they have some dirt/dust contamination but both wheels spin freely with no obstruction. Hubs are the models as follow: M1-213 front M1-221 rear The rear wheel IS eligible for the rear hub upgrade (which includes new bearings). Rear freehub is shimano and has signs of use from the cassette mounted on there. The rear wheel has a spoke that has been replaced with a Easton Haven spoke which is a black spoke with a black nipple, the originals are chrome spoke with red nipples. The function identically to the original spoke except for the color. The wheels may need to be trued. They've been off my bike for a couple months now. All close ups of rim blemishes in the photos are of the rear wheel. Not all blemishes and wear are pictures. Pictures are meant to be an indicator of general condition of cosmetic appearance of the rim. ----- Message me for more info or questions. I also have these listed on ebay. Just search "easton ec90 xc" . Free shipping to the continental US 48.

To The Point - UST Rims and Tires
I was actually thinking about Tech Tuesdays on my last ride. "Man they had some cool and useful articles. Why did get rid of that?" I think to myself ..... Remembers article about replacing zip-ties with airplane wiring on your bike. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/Tech-Tuesday-Replace-Plastic-Zip-Ties-With-Safety-Wire-2012.html

Prototype FOX DH Shock - 2013 World Champs
Graves is supposed to be on a Fox 36 180mm. As long as the track is down hill it's still fair game IMHO. I don't think I'd care if they raced tricycles down the mountain. as long as they slay that track on the way down as fast as humanly possible, I'm a happy customer. I say use the most effective tool for the job!

Seen and Heard at Crankworx
Regarding wheel size and enduro.... it's easy to forget and overlook at the Jared Graves wins almost every stage he rides (without a crash or mechanical) with a 26" Yeti SB-66c. And many of those are crushing margins as well. Sure he's in 3rd overall (still incredible) but, barring a perfect run, he's the man to beat in my opinion... 26 inch wheels and all!
