Selling a brand new Fox CTD Factory series shock with Boost Valve remote, yes this comes with the remote and it works on either side of the bar. Shock is 6.5x1.5" or roughly 165x38mm. I'll get into more details about that below. This was originally for a 2015 Trek Superfly FS (previously known as Superfly 100), and would work very well right out of the box any Superfly it fits on. However, if you're riding something different and the tune on this shock is either too firm or too soft, you could simply get it re-tuned by various suspension service centers (preferably Fox) according to what you'd like. This shock retails for $470, and the remote for $100. I'm looking for $400, this is the lowest price I've been able to find for this shock online so far. Amazon sells it for $550. I won't give you a list of every bike this fits on, but to give you an idea it's the smallest size this shock is made in and is for an XC rig, probably 100mm of travel. However, I can give you a list of all the Trek bikes this will fit on. Again though, this is tuned for a Superfly FS/100 but might be great on some other bikes, it all depends on the way the linkage is laid out in the frame (think leverage). That said, here's a list of the more common Trek bikes this will fit in. 2005-2012 Top Fuel - all models 2013 Superfly SL - all carbon models. NOT ALUMINUM MODELS 2014-2015 Superfly - all models There's a few other models from the early 2000's and late 90's that use this same size shock, so if you have a Trek FS bike that you don't see here but think it may use this shock, just PM me and I can check for you. You may need different eyelet hardware for this, which should be available through your LBS. If you don't have any idea what hardware you'll need for this shock, again, PM me and I can check for you. I'll try to reply the same day but please be patient if I don't. I'll only take Paypal for this as you can imagine and I won't take returns. Just PM me with any questions and I'd be happy to answer them, however I can't tell you if it will fit in a non-Trek bike. There are plenty of non-Trek models out there that use this shock I just can't verify it, for instance I believe the Santa Cruz Superlight uses it as well as the Rocky Mountain Element, but it's up to you to verify that stuff.

Mountain Biking in the Midwest
Great trails for sure! But the Midwest has so much more to offer, mostly along the lines of trail/AM riding. I'd love to see Pinkbike do more features based in the Midwest, or really any areas of the country that don't get the spotlight nearly often enough.

Opinion: How To Save Downhill Racing
I want to see Gwin and Atherton on the Red Bull cans. I want to see Hill on the Monster commercials. Show him with his arms around the Monster girls after he wins, you get the idea. I've wondered for YEARS now why this isn't happening. A Downhill race only takes a few hours, play it on espn for god's sake instead of f#cking sports center! Hell even do a replay of it during the week when there are no games on or something. This really isn't rocket science and we could easily make this the talk of the dinner table for some families.

Saris Makes it Happen – Made in the USA
I bought my Fluid2 trainer from my boss because he wanted to get rollers instead. It's about five years old, and still works like it's brand spankin new.

Preview: MET 2014 Helmets
I saw a guy with one of these skeleton full face helmets at the Dakota 5-0 this year. Kind of stuck out like a sore thumb...
