Profile Elite Stans Flow EX ZTR Custom Wheels

$600 USD
Looking to sell my 1 year old custom built wheels. they have blue Profile Elite hubs in 20mmF and 150mm by 12mmR hub sizes. These have DT spokes and nipples the wheels weighed 1820 grams!!!!! The hoops are good and roll true. I just installed Michelin Wild Rock'R 2 tires. They have 4 rides on them! TIRES "Traction, we have met your master, and its name is Michelin Wild Rock'R2 Advanced. There is more rubber in the massive, square shoulder knobs than in the entire mass of knobs found on other tires, especially those of the "fast-rolling" variety. With flat, ramped, moderately spaced center knobs, the Wild Rock'R2 spins up hill faster than expected, based on its weight and super sticky rubber. Make no mistake, however, the Rock'R2's sole purpose in life is to charge rough terrain and make you like like a hero doing it. Two editions, Gum-X and Magi-X, are available for your riding pleasure. Gum-X Wild Rock'R2 tires are recommended for rear wheel use, featuring a dual compound structure of 55A-durometer center knobs and 53A-durometer shoulder knobs. While there is no doubt that grip is the main goal of the Gum-X compound, there is a slight concession to wear resistance in this combination. Michelin's Magi-X compound, on the other hand, is fully intended to maximize performance. With ultra-slow rebounding shoulder knobs providing pro-level hold, and a center tread balanced for traction and responsive braking, Magi-X is better suited for front tire use. Michelin's Reinforced Technology places a high-density, bead-to-bead breaker ply under the tread for supreme puncture and pinch flat resistance. This lets you rail with confidence—confidence boosted with the staggering effectiveness of the Wild Rock'R2's tread design, rubber compound, and robust construction." HUBS "Profile Racing's bulletproof hub design comes to the world of 150mmm hub spacing. The hub is designed for a 12mm thru axle (such as the Rock Shox Maxle) (not included.) ISO disc brake mount. Shimano/Sram compatible 9/10 speed driver. 32 or 36 spoke hole drilling. Tall flanges use shorter, stiffer spokes, and centered flanges allow wheel to be virtually dish-less for added strength. Flange Diameters: 59mm Center to Drive-Side Flange: 26mm Center to Non-Drive-Side Flange: 28mm 150mm OLD 12mm Thru Axle (no Skewer) weight: 356g/12.5oz" RIMS "With multiple World Cup and World Championship victories already in the books, improving the legendary Flow wasn't easy, but input from the best riders in the world and countless hours spent sweating even the smallest of details has led to a rim that redefines what even we thought was possible. The Flow EX is lower, wider, and meaner, offering a lower profile sidewall and redesigned Bead Socket Technology for maximum durability and tire seal on even the most punishing of technical trails. At the same weight as the original Flow, the new EX offers 14% thicker sidewalls for maximum dent resistance and a 33% thicker spoke bed for added pull-through strength. Increasing the outside width of the rim to 29.1mm and the interior width to 25.5mm let us reshape the bead socket for an even tighter seal and allowed our internal arch to add even more stiffness to the rim's structure. The Flow EX: the strongest, fastest rolling, and best sealing tubeless rim available for 26-inch, 29-inch and 650b tires sizes just got even better."

Hope Stealth Tech V4 Evo Brakeset

$450 USD
Selling the brakeset they will have brand new pads in package included. Also they have the 203mm floating rotor option these have an MSRP of $75 a pop!!! These have braided lines..... Hope Tech Evo V4 brake details: • Intended for Downhill and Big Mountain riding • Quad piston design using staggered 14mm & 16mm pistons • 183mm & 203mm rotor compatibility • Solid, floating & vented rotor options • CNC machined 2014 T6 Aluminium construction • Titanium bolts (Stealth Edition) • Braided stainless steel hoses • Colours: silver (standard) or black (Stealth Edition) • Weight: 482g each (actual) including 203mm rotor & titanium mounting hardware • MSRP: apprx £250 inc floating rotor (vented +£50) "As we had these fitted to several bikes over the course of a few months the V4 proved easy to set up and get comfortable with. This was helped by the high quality finishing of both the adaptors and calipers, discs which remain virtually impervious to heat warping, and copious adjustment to both reach and bite of the brake at the levers. It’s worth noting that of all the brakes out there on the market, the Hope Tech lever seems to be one of the very best for riders with small hands. It allows for the independent adjustment of reach and bite, and thanks to this the brake can be set with the lever very close to the bar for easy reach. It also retains full power and a positive feel even when run this close to the bar, something that other brakes have been known to struggle with. We were supplied with both sintered and organic pads to test although given the weather recently we ran the sintered for the majority of the time. This is the same compound as used in the rest of their range and the pads are incredibly hard wearing while providing great feel and control to enable easy modulation of the power. Bite is firm but beyond the initial contact of pad to disc there’s a wealth of control available; the V4 is certainly no on/off switch. Comparing the brake directly to the new Saint, as many others are also likely to do, there feels to be similar power and control but the way in which they go about providing this is certainly different. Where the Saint could be described as slightly soft around the bite point, the Hope much more positive, although not as good as the outgoing V2. This is normal on brakes where the pistons are of differing sizes as the pad doesn’t make perfectly square contact with the rotor initially. Beyond that initial bite though and there’s little further movement available from the Hope lever, the modulation instead coming from altering the pressure on the lever from your fingers. Having been a long-time fan of Hope brakes it would be easy to say that the Hope is better, but that avoids the subtleties. All the top brakes work very well on the trail and that’s what we’re testing here; dyno figures are all very interesting but they don’t count for anything if the end result is a product that doesn’t instil confidence. The Hope feel is powerful, controllable, and gives very precise feedback to what the brake is doing, relative to braking effort. Subtle changes around the point of locking enables a rider to maximise their control of the bike, a must in greasy conditions, and the intuitive nature of this means its very easy to get used to them."

Custom World Champs Bikes and Gear
Luca's helmet is pretty cool. The Syndicate should be playing these for Steve... "Do you want to know why the world is so great?... Because: This is England. I hear a gang fire on a human factory farm Are they howling out or doing somebody harm On a catwalk jungle somebody grabbed my arm A voice spoke so cold it matched the weapon in her palm This is England This knife of Sheffield steel This is England This is how we feel Time on his hands freezing in those clothes He won't go for the carrot They beat him by the pole Some sunny day confronted by his soul He's out at sea, too far off, he can't go home This is England What we're supposed to die for This is England And we're never gonna cry no more Black shadow of the Vincent Falls on a Triumph line I got my motorcycle jacket But I'm walking all the time South Atlantic wind blows Ice from a dying creed I see no glory When will we be free This is England We can chain you to the rail This is England We can kill you in a jail Those British boots go kick Bengali in the head Police sit watchin' The newspapers been read Who cares to protest After the air attack by flare Out came the batons and The British warned themselves This is England The land of illegal dances This is England Land of a thousand stances This is England This knife of Sheffield steel This is England This is how we feel This is England This is England" Be sick just his entire run that cranked so the entire pits can hear it.

Riding Jared Graves' Prototype Yeti SB6c
"My initial pushes on the fork and shock had me assuming that I was going to be pitching back and forth through the stroke with every pull of the brake levers or push of the pedals, but the amount of control on tap from the fork and shock's dampers was next level." If the suspension works right compression and sag shouldn't be needed to fight pedal bob. Would the Yeti platform fall into one of these designs or is it still needed the shock to keep the bob away?
