Movies For Your Monday
More and more North Americans DO care! Don't lose hope! Vote with your wallet! Know where your food comes from. The fact that the staff at a mountain bike website felt compelled enough to put this politically-charged video on this list means that compassion and concern are indeed growing :)

I got this beautiful little DH/bike park machine in 2012 straight from Transition direct. I built it up with the help of professional mechanics at Trail Head Cyclery, in San Jose, CA. It has treated me extremely well over the past few years, conquering everything from Santa Cruz redwood loam to big bike park jumps in Whistler. I am not going to pretend I didn't ride it hard, however, it has been professionally maintained during its entire lifespan at Trail Head Cyclery. This bike truly shreds just as hard as it did the first day I built it. It is almost entirely stock, except for grips and tires. I love this thing to death but I just haven't really had time for DH runs lately. Specs: Frame: 2012 Transition TR250, size L, purple, 180mm travel Rear Shock - Fox DHX RC4 Kashima Fork - Fox 36 Van 180 RC2 Black Tapered w/Kashima Stem - Transition Temple Lite Handlebar - Kore Torsion 800x35mm Headset - FSA Gravity DX Pro Crankset - Truvativ Descendent GXP83 w/36t chainring Brakes - Avid Code R Tires - Specialized Butcher DH 2.4 Seatpost - Truvativ Hussefelt DC Saddle - Transition Diamond Stitch Grips - Sensus Swayze single ply (DIY undersleeve to make them thicker for big hands) Cassette - SRAM PG-950 11-26 Wheelset - TBC Revolution 32 150 Rear Shifter - SRAM X7 9spd Rear Derailleur - SRAM X9 short cage 9spd Chainguide - e.13 LG1+ Chain - KMC X9.93 Pedals - not included The good: Everything on it works perfectly. I had the suspension serviced by Trail Head Cyclery mechanics once a year. Fresh brake pads. Barely-used tires - 90% tread left. It is super playful and nimble, making it great for flow-based jump trails, but also has the DH plowability of its big brothers, the TR450 and TR500. Bombproof components in a snappy, playful package. Aside from the minor fork creak, this thing is QUIET. And it's purple. Did I mention it shreds??? The bad: Minor cosmetic damage. There are a fair amount of scratches in the frame's paint, but no structural damage (no dents, dings, etc.) The stock Transition rims were a little softer than expected, but are still holding up and spinning true. The fork has a small creak emanating from where the crown meets the steerer tube, but it's only noticeable doing endos. The professional mechanics at Trail Head Cyclery informed me this was a common problem with Fox forks from that year. There is also a tiny nick in the derailleur cable housing, but it has not affected shifting at all. She's got a few scars, but is still alive and kicking! Make me an offer. Once again, this bike retailed for $4500. It's really really solid. If you are looking to get into downhill/freeride for under 3 G's, this is a killer way to do so.
