Selling for a friend who cant write an ad. The bike is in my possession and I've given it a tune up. Medium Pitch frame 150mm - X fusion shock has brand new seal kit and rebuild Marz 55 Micro Ti. 160mm . Coil sprung with air assist. Very plush Very recent XT brakes. Awesome stoppers. Sram 9 spd shifts great Raceface Atlas cranks, recent BB 45mm stem Brand new DU bushing and reducers Just straightened the derailer hanger Lower chain guide Solid geoemtrey for an older 26er. Slack head angle, steep seat tube, long front centre. A great buy. The bad Couple creaks and squeaks as expected from a used bike. Bikes a solid runner. Frame is solid no cracks or dents Fork lockout no longer works Seat has hole or two Handlebars only 28" wide The front brakes works perfect. The rear pads might be contaminated and may need replacing. Rear wheel is DH casing but I might change it out for lighter tire. I'm guessing bike is 33-34lbs

Fox's Featherweight 32 Step-Cast Fork - First Look
At this travel and weight category the lefty rules. An XC race Lefty is below 3pounds and probably twice as stiff. Oh and more supple. Just sayin'

Ask Pinkbike: Lefty or RockShox, Clips For Park Riding, and Finding Fork Offset
If you took the chassis stiffness of the lefty and combined it with the damper performance of the big players youd have the ultimate suspension. I ride both, a lefty and now a durolux. The lefty is so stiff and precise the chassis design speaks for itself. It is superior in that regard. Oh and lower axle to crown as well just like a dual crown fork vs single crown.

SRAM Announces NX 1x11 Drivetrain
540g cassette?!! at that weight just run a smaller 250g 11-32 cassette, with a 2x system and you've got more range and less unsprung weight and wayyy more money in the bank. This 1x craze is getting stupid.

I bought this shock off pinkbike a few months ago for a project. Ended up not needing it. Previous owner said it was on his daughters spec stumpy and had new seals last year. I had the shock apart and put in new 2.5 oil, gave it a good clean and lube. I can confirm it holds air, rebound works, just went with a different eye to eye as I lowered my travel on project frame. Currently have volume reducing spacers "aluminum tape' than can be removed on request. Included mounting hardware for a (2009?) spec stumpy. I can confirm when I got the shock the tune sticker was medium (M) but the little sticker fell off. I believe this applies to both compression and rebound. Previous owner took all the other decal off for a clean stealth look. IFP pressure set to 100psi
