The only thing I like as much as riding is building trails. Nothing better than getting a high five from your riding buds after they ride a trail that you just built.

27.5+ wheelset fits 29er

$599 USD
-Sunringle Mulefoot Rims -Hope Hubs red in color -WTB trailblazer tires -Set up tubless -Extra spokes included -Can be set up single speed or will accept any cassette -brake rotors and ss cog not included Really nice gently used wheel set. Does not come set up single speed and can accept any cassette you like.I built this wheel set to convert my specialized carve 29er into a 27.5+. Sunringle Mulefoot rims set up tubeless with red Hope hubs, red spoke nips, WTB Trailblazer 2.8 tires. Front is 15mm and back is a regular spaced 9mm skewer. Fits great on my 29er and completely transformed the bike. I am sold on this wheel size and I bought a full suspension 27.5+ trail bike. I have $940 in this build and less than a dozen rides on these wheels. These would make a great 27.5+ set of wheels for your current build or would be great for transforming your 29er.

Crank Bros Dropper post

$50 USD
Crank brothers Kronolog dropper post. 30.9dia 405mm 125mm travel. Im selling because it just does not work like when it was new. It could be worked on or maybe rebuilt and be like new again but I didn't wanna mess with it and I bought a new one. If you can work on it or wanna send it back to crank bros for service it will probably work well for another 3 seasons. Make me an offer.

Checked my sag to see if compression damper makes a difference. Full open at 30%=26-27% in firm setting

hey Paul. I just bought that shock for my stumpjumper fsr evo and was having trouble setting sag. I called Rock Shox and they said its perfectly fine to go as high as 350psi. I was 30% sag at 300psi. The guy from RS said he runs his at 30% sag and thats the sweet spot. I'm going to try mine between 25-30% and see whats best. So far at 30% it already feels way better that my fox rp23. Not as much bouncing or pedal bob and the travel is far more linear You can run some volume reducers but it will effect the way the shock works more than it will lower your pressure setting. I haven't read about any problems with blown seals or performance issues with the high psi settings. Try cycling the shock before you measure the sag when you're adding air and also see if it runs closer to 25% sag in the stiffest damper setting.

Eurobike 2013 - Good, Bad and the Ugly
Quit saying ebike it's a f'ing moped and they have no place on the trails. Mopeds belong on paper routes not on singletrack.

The Argument For Short Travel Bikes - Opinion
Love this article! I started riding on a 6" bike and my learning curve was warped. I ride a Enduro Evo now but I have a rigid SS that has made my riding better than ever. I do everything better on my Enduro ever since I started riding my rigid SS. A big bike doesn't force you to learn how to go fast. You wanna go fast? Train on a less than super bike or go to a skills clinic. Even if you are the fastest in your group, there is a thousand people out there that can smoke you! Besides getting better is fun :)
