Top end SRAM build for 2012: Boxxer World Cup, Vivid Air, Code brakes, 30" Havoc DH bars, Truvativ Descendant cranks, Nukeproof Ti pedals, XO drivetrain and E13 guide... 37 lbs with DH casing tires and welter-weight tubes. Wheels: not quite so fancy, but getting the job done as consumable items. Havoc front and newer Canfield rear... both are true and the bearings are smooth. Major maintenance items are dealt with for next season. Frame bearings are the Enduro kit and only have a few rides on them. Boxxer lowers were just re-lubed before taking pictures and uppers serviced a month ago. Comes with 4 sets of unused brake pads for the excellent Code brakes. Comes with geometry adjustment center chips and the newer style rear axle that is a breeze to work with and very secure. It's currently set to the longer chainstay length and 180mm of travel on the Vivid Air, which is the best shock I've ridden yet. It's ready to rip! TR250 frames are very strong, but have weak paint. There is no base/prime coat and it wears easier than some other bikes I've had, so touch-up paint has been used on the usual wear spots. There is also a small dent on the top tube from shuttling shown in the pictures that has made no difference to an exciting and safe season. Willing to discuss a long-distance shipping arrangement within the U.S. over the phone using Paypal if you aren't local to western Washington.

Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
New flow trails get people into the sport and there should be plenty of room for them in most areas, but don't dumb down the trails the experienced riders were already enjoying unless people from that user group are consistently getting hurt in a certain section. It's about risk vs. reward and fine tuning the ratio so challenges are enjoyable, rather than unnecessarily risky (or boring), for the intended style (green, blue or black).

Video: Rowdy The Clown Goes Fat Biking
Just when I thought fat bikes couldn't get any more fringe, this happens! The funny part is that I totally dug it. Classic weirdness like back in the day when MTB was still underground enough to be unable to offend mainstream sensibilities.

How to Touch Your Toes Without Stretching
Don't mind the pinkkids. Eventually they too will age, crash, get hurt and be forced to listen to the wisdom of trainers like James to get their health back. It's the cycle of life :)
