Thomson External Dropper post 400 x 125 x 31.6dia

$225 USD
Thomson External Dropper. Lightly used. It's been bomber, but I got a new bike frame with a 30.9 dia seat post so this needs a new home. It's 400 mm long, has 125mm travel and fits a 31.6 dia seatpost. It's a bomber post that saw only a few months of flawless use before I got the new frame. Buyer pays $12 shipping within the continental US, $18 for AK and Hawaii. Paypal only unless local pickup.

Thomson Stealth Dropper 31.6 x 125 x 400

$275 USD
Thomson Stealth Dropper. Lightly used. No bleeding, no failing seals, just reliable, infinite adjust. I'm selling it because my new frame takes a 30.9. I got this post to replace a Reverb (or should I say, "reverbs" as the original post had to be replaced too many times to count). It's been bomber, but I only used it a month before swapping to a new bike frame and this wasn't going to fit. It's 400 mm long, has 125mm travel and fits a 31.6 dia seatpost. Buyer pays $12 shipping within the continental US, $18 for AK and Hawaii. Paypal only unless local pickup.

Bontrager XXX 70mm stem

$100 USD
Super lightweight (107 grams), but strong enough for XC racing and trail riding, this is a weight weenie's dream stem. It features 7 deg of rise/negative rise. I used it on a Santa Cruz tallboy but swapped it out for a shorter stem after a few rides and found this gem in the garage. I don't race anymore so it needs to go. It's obviously the black version of this stem with the clear coat. Hmmm, anything else? Standard 31.8 clamp surface would be it, I'd guess. Shipping: $5 within the continental US, $8 to Hawaii/AK. Paypal only unless local pick up.

Fox Float CTD Adjust Boost Valve Factory Shock NEW

$200 USD
Fox Float CTD Adjust CTD Boost Valve Factory series shock. 7.875" x 2.25" (7 and 7/8" eye to eye by 2 and 1/4" stroke). This shock has never been ridden. It has the Kashima coating, the boost valve air sleeve, and the CTD adjust in the trail mode. It's valved for a Ventana El Zeus; the air sleeve tune reads "boost valve tune 200", "Rebound tune L 225", "Velocity Tune L". The bushing hardware is for a 6mm bolt, so if your bike uses 8mm bolts you'll need to get new bushings. Buyer pays shipping: $8 within the continental US, $12 for Hawaii, etc. Paypal only, excepting a local pick up in Hood River, OR.

Fox Float CTD Boost Valve NEW

$125 USD
Fox Float CTD Boost Valve non Kashima rear shock. 7.875" eye to eye, 2.25" stroke (7 and 7/8" x 2 and 1/4") Valved for a 2014 Lapierre Spicy and the tune code reads "CMSG". Shock was never ridden as I upgraded to a Cane Creek inline straight away. This is not the high end fox CTD boost valve shock, but not the bottom of the line, either. It's a good, solid damper, it simply lacks the adjustability in trail mode of the trail adjust, and doesn't have a kashima coating. Otherwise the guts are identical to the Float CTD adjust. Buyer pays shipping ($8 within the continental US; $12 to Hawaii, AK, etc). Paypal only. Waive shipping by meeting locally in Hood River, OR.

@Royal28: someone did make that approach a few years ago in the ski industry: check out Beyond Clothing. It's changed hands since it was founded but the principles of the company remain the same. And I do stand by the principle that you get what you pay for. Quality apparel should and (typically) does last for years. Fashion, on the other hand, can live and die in a single season. There are warehouses filled with neon crap from the 80s ski industry proving that.

@tipsword: happy to help you out, chum! Not. But seriously: sure, I'll hunt for a deal first, but if I absolutely gotta have it, I'll pay full price for it if I trust that quality of what I'm purchasing. In my collection of personal gear are 2 pr of bib shorts from 2002 that are finally on their way out--gotta love the quality of a good Italian chamois. I paid full retail for them: $110 ea. And I've also got 2 sombrio jerseys from 2012 that I also paid full price for: $80 ea. And I've screwed up and had to buy a tech t or a pr of shorts, etc at the last minute and gone rock bottom cheap whenever I've done that and you know what? None of that stuff lasted a season. Shoot, I had one pr of $20 gloves not even last the ride before the palm blew apart. Bottom line? You get what you pay for.

First, enough light has been shined on cheap child labor practices in India, Malaysia, Mexico, China, etc that it's pretty much a thing of the past for reputable companies to engage in. All the companies who's clothing was reviewed here don't subscribe to that kind of labor practice. 7Mesh, for example, discloses their manufacturing process in detail here http://www.7meshinc.com/manufacturing/ Secondly, even if the sewing is cheap, the tech involved in the fabrics is not. And there's a LOT of tech that goes into making quality textiles, like the Icefil and Xylotil fabrics in the Sugoi RSX jersey. I mean a fabric that works to lower one's skin temp by up to 2 degrees F by absorbing heat? That's star trek stuff. And it's not inexpensive for Sugoi to purchase.

A lot of people are barking about the price on the items reviewed without bothering to read into the design or the tech that went into each piece. Yes, a lot of this gear is expensive, make no mistake; but when you factor in the design time, the tech used in the fabrics, etc; it boils down to you get what you pay for, and the manufacturers will stand behind their gear. Check, for example, Giro's return policy on their clothing and gear.
