Ask Pinkbike: Protect Your New Frame, One-By Drivetrain Conversions, Gravity Hydration Pack Alternatives
I would suggest that commenting "Then that makes you gay if your are a male rider" only reinforces said stereotypes.

2010 Specialized Enduro - Medium. I have loved owning this bike, it can do everything! Moving to an area with no hills is forcing the sale. I've given it a big overhaul ready for sale - new chain stay, new wheel bearings, bottom bracket, rear rim, grips, seat post, jockey wheels. Brakes are a month old. Both wheels have been trued by the manufacturer, rear shock has been serviced, Rear derailleur is only a couple of months old. It's riding fantastically! I will either ship by overnight courier (£25) or you can pay cash on collection from Heanor, Derbyshire. Here's a detailed description: Frame: Specialized aluminium. There are plenty of scratches, but the structure is excellent. Chain stay is brand new as I noticed a dent on the old one so have replaced for the sale. Fork: Rock Shox Lyric Air. I cannot get over how good and reliable this has been. I have had it serviced plenty, often by SRAM. There is some superficial scratching on the stations. That happened a couple of years back and they have never leaked or had any problems. Seriously fantastic forks. Shock: Fox RP 2 - I just serviced this, works really well. Has pro pedal mode that counteracts pedal bob well - I've placed top 10 in XC races on this bike! Wheels: Superstar hubs, Front is Stans rim, rear is brand new superstar tubeless. Both wheels have new bearings, are true, and are taped ready for tubeless - you just need a valve and some sealant. Tyres: Front is Maxis High Roller II Exo 2.4, rear is Maxis Advantage. Both have loads of life left in them. A great combo for having fun and going fast! Brakes: Shimano hydraulic. A joy to bleed, and have all the power I've ever needed. There were some knicks in the hoses of the old ones I had, so I replaced with he same model a month or so ago. Gears: Raceface narrow wide front chainring, Shimano Zee Clutch rear derailleur (new jockey wheels) with 11 - 36 10 speed cassette. I've only dropped the chain once since I changed to this setup over a year ago. So quiet and smooth. The granny gear is still on for any big grinds up fire roads, and that means you can easily return to a 2x10 setup if you so desire. Saddle & Seatpost: Brand new Crank Brothers seatpost, which looks great, and Chromag saddle. Bars & Stem: Sunline V-One. Bars are 745mm wide, which I find perfect. Brand new lock on grips. Email me with any questions. No Trades means I won't trade it for anything other than money!

2.4" Maxis High Roller II EXO protection 650b / 27.5" Folding Tyre. A great all round tyre. I'm only selling as I'm moving to a place with only hard pack and no gnarliness! As you can see from the close up, this tyre is hardly worn at all. It's condition is basically new. It's only done a couple of rides. Knobs, sidewalls, etc are all in great condition. The EXO sidewalls are great, especially if you're going tubeless. This tyre hasn't been mounted tubeless, but I've mounted the exact same one tubeless before and it went on great. £25 including postage to mainland UK.

2014 Kona Process 134 Small. This bike is amazing, corners like it's on rails, check out the reviews. Internal cable routing and clutch derailleur make it very quiet, and the dropper post is awesome! Bought new this year and only lightly ridden (as you can tell by the condition of the grips!). Moving to an area where I don't need a full suspension bike, so I'm sadly selling it. Comes with all original parts, manuals, touch up paint (only very very minor scratching on the frame) and the receipt for warranty purposes. Can be collected in person from Heanor (between Derby and Nottingham) or couriered to mainland UK (add £25 for courier). Here's the spec in detail. Frame: Aluminium with carbon seat stay bridge. The farm is designed with very modern geometry - long front centre and short stem. This is what gives it its amazing cornering ability. Forks: RockShox Sektor Silver Air 140mm QR15 - working very nicely Shock: RockShox Monarch R - matches up nicely with the fork. Wheels: WTB SX23 rims built on Shimano Deore hubs - The doer hubs are great, run great and really easy to service. This is wheelset is a good compromise of strength and weight. I have put tubeless tape on the rims, so it's ready to go, just get some valves and sealant and you're tubeless! Gears: Shimano SLX Clutch rear derailleur - crisp and so quiet. Once you go clutch you won't go back! Deere shifters work great, and SRAm X5 front deraiileur does it's thing with no fuss! Chainset: Deore cranks, double ring setup, 10speed. Gives you all the gears you could want. Brakes: Shimano Deore, with 180/160mm rotors. Work fantastically. I have bled the recently, and they're so simple to bleed, it's a joy after suffering SRAM/Avid brake bleeds! Seatpost: KS Eten R - Really nice and smooth, not genital smashingly fast. I cannot overstate how good dropper posts are - they've transformed my biking experience. Tyres: Maxxis Ardent. A great compromise of grip and speed. Bar: 740mm a great width on a small bike. Stem: 40mm - nice and short, designed to work perfectly with the long frame to make the steering so responsive. Pedals: Nanotech flats. Great condition. Let me know if you don't want them including in the sale and I'll knock £20 off the price.

The wooden features pretty much took themselves out. As far as I'm aware it got a bit of a rebuild for the beast race in Whis last year. It was wet for that, and scary enough without wet wood features to deal with!

Tracy Moseley's Remedy 29 - Enduro World Series, Round 1
Metacomet, I do what you suggested. It was great when I lived in the mountains and you might be climbing for an hour or more before doing full on downhills. I had just broken my chain guide and middle ring, and needed a new derailleur so decided to give it a go. It's been good for the last year, though I have dropped my chain twice in the last month, which is annoying. In general, if a climb looks short I'll just push on through in the middle ring, but if i know it's a grind I'll take the 10 secs to change my front gear manually. Rode the EWS in Whistler with it last year and it was great, really saved some energy / walks on the transfers.
