Race Face Atlas 31.8 785mm uncut 1.25" rise

$45 USD
I've had these on for a couple months. Nice and wide! they're in perfect condition besides the expected marks from clamping brakes, shifter, grips. There is also a stem pictured. It's not included at this price but it's made by Kalloy and it's only 87 grams! Rated strong enough for mountain biking too, making it an incredibly light stem. Really shave some weight with these. Just mention them if you're interested and a price can be figured out. Thanks! Atlas Bars - 31.8 clamp. 785mm wide. 1.25" rise Kalloy Uno Stem - 87 grams, 6 degree rise 60mm length. Rated for MTB +35$

Continental Race King 2.2 Folding (Brand New) 26

$55 USD
If you are looking into some durable, fast, good traction and great durability tires that also shed a lot of weight off your bike, then these are something ought to know about. This is the nicest version of this tire, with - ProTection to protect from flats but also setup easier if you want to go tubeless - Black Chili to give you great traction and durability. Continental is the only brand known to achieve such a breakthrough compound - Folding bead. Lighter, convenient - Super light! 580 grams. Most tires for this intended use are around 750-900 grams and they aren't any cheaper! It's a really nice XC tire. It's also great for downhill/freeride bikes that are being on trails that don't need aggressiive knobby heavy downhill tires. I find myself pedaling effortlessly up hills and still having plenty of traction and protection on the way down. Most tires don't offer this in such a durable/light tire. OR maybe you want these on a dirt jumper? It's very light and fast rolling. I almost guarantee these are lighter than what you're using now! My asking price is for a single tire. These are absolutely brand new! Be reasonable, and we can work something out. I would actually prefer to sell as a set. "Continental Race King Tire 26 x 2.2" Folding ProTection Black Chili: Super fast rolling tire with widely spaced knobs to handle a wide range of conditions. ProTection: updated with an UST-style bead and an additional layer of rubber-coated, high strength nylon that spans the complete width of the tire providing added durability and air tightness. Combined with sealant, ProTection models deliver low-pressure tubeless performance with improved damping, traction and rolling characteristics"

Yeah but that's much less relevant. Consider that you have 2 seals...so automatically twice the friction. Stanchions are bigger too so there's more surface area per seal which is more friction as well. Several times more just based on surface area.

from drooling when you saw this bike? Or from something else?

Forks suffer so much more friction. I wish forks could have some kind of leverage and compression ratio. Then, like the shock, the force applied would have an advantage over the resistance of the shock, whereas with a fork it is even. 1 inch of compression is 1 inch of travel...so none of the friction is minimized either. For this reason, rear suspension will always be more smooth than the front. It always bothers me just a little. Not like I have any ideas, really...I just notice it.

Pinkbike Poll: What Style of Grip Do You Prefer?
I like lock-on but prefer lock-ons that only lock on the inner part. Your typical lock on locks on the outer side too, costing you about half a cm of bar width on each side which feels like a waste and it's kind of annoying to me. I really like Ergons new grip. The GE1 but I do wish it were a bit thicker. It just doesn't have quite enough diameter to fit my hands as nicely as they could but everything else is great and no grip seems to be quite as big as it should or could be. Why can't companies offer thicker sizes? I don't need a squishy grip so much as I need one that gives me a good sizable squeeze. I think a grip with more diameter would relieve my hand of fatigue a very good bit more. Like...come on. I only hold onto my bike for dear life by the grips and my feet are just resting on the pedals. You'd think there would be more engineering and selection for grips but I think it's an under appreciated component of the bike. I hope it gets more attention. Grip is a huge factor in control and fatigue. It's why bars are getting wider and more advanced but I think grips would be the other half of it. Please hear our cry for bigger grips! I'm talking to all the biggies...Oury, ODI, Ergon, Lizard Skins...there's a demand for it! I would pay 40-50 dollars for a grip if it was perfect for me. Please, up-vote this post if you want the companies to hear this. I would love me some bigger grips.

Yeah when the hell did this sport become so hateful? It's mountain biking...If a VOD is going to ruin your day then you're doing something wrong with your time.

Continental Race King 2.2 Folding

$60 USD
Tires are doing well. Front looks just about perfect with the rear slightly worn. It's been ridden a few times but no more than 50 miles. This is the nicer and lighter racesport version with black chili compound for ultimate traction and durability. Very light tire at 500 grams! Paypal works great for me.
