Pardigm Cycle Works fender included. Cane Creek DBairCS, Mid size volume spacer. Fresh lube and air can seals. RaceFace Next SL Gen 3 Cranks. 175mm, 32t ring. Bottom bracket has maybe 5 rides on it, will have new booties on as well. RaceFace Sixc 35 Carbon Bars, 19mm rise. Were replaced at start of the summer. Ergon GE1 Grips, pretty worn.

Pads are in good shape DT Swiss 240s CL hubs w/ 36t ratchet laced to EX471 Rims with Competition Race Spokes. Rims/Spokes were done at the start of the summer, in great shape. MRP AMG Carbon, Gen 2 Shimano XTR M-9000 11 Speed Shifter, Derailleur, and 11-40 Cassette. (Like New) KMC SL11DLC Black/Red Chain. (Like New) WTB Convict Tires 2.5 Tough/High Grip. Very good shape. Tubeless This is an awesome bike that absolutely shreds. The 11-speed XTR M-9000 Drivetrain and KMC Chain have less than a dozen rides on them. I laced the wheels with new rims and spokes at the start of the summer. The bottom bracket, headset, and rear hub bearings all have only 5-6 rides on them, front hub bearings still feel like new. The MRP Stage was just rebuilt with a complete damper/spring service, that included some upgrades to the damper. I have ridden this bike hard and it shows with some small cosmetic stuff, but the frame is in good overall shape, and most the components are like new. I am a full time professional mechanic of 10 years. I have built and maintained this bike to a very high standard and with a compulsive attention to detail. There is some cosmetic wear to the toptube/bottom of down tube and the fork from shuttling. The crankarms show some wear from shoes and rocks. With the current tires she is a bit portly at 33lbs, but is super fun on the way down. With "standard" Maxxis tubeless tires, this bike ways 30.5-31 lbs. TRADES! I don't want your xbox or RC Cars. I'll trade you my bike for money.

Ask Pinkbike: Shoes, Stems, and 180mm DH Bikes
Tr500 can be run in a 180mm travel setting with a 64 deg. head angle and 435mm stays if running 26" wheels...basically a TR250 in slack setting and mid stay length.

Vail Resorts Aquires Whistler Blackcomb
@leelau: that was 2006-2010. FIG bought Intrawest, then went public (2010). KSL bought those majority shares in 2012. The convoluted owner history of whistler doesn't really matter at this point. What matters is there's a new owner that, yes could possibly f*** everything up, or they could make huge improvements all over their North American resorts by learning from whistler. im personally hoping for the latter.

Vail Resorts Aquires Whistler Blackcomb
@SteveDekker: who was the majority after buying out Intrawest and taking over the management that's Vail. Anybody can go buy stock in whistler, doesn't mean you get to decide anything on how the hill is run. Unless vail decides to clean house and hire a bunch of new people, it's still the same managers who actually run the hill. But instead of having to work for a firm of rich dudes who aren't really in the ski industry. They work for a bunch of rich dudes who actually own ski hills now and for better or worse know how to run a high end resort. Seeing as they own, what, 12 now? Plus, any season pass you get to one of their other resorts, normally gets you minimum 5-10 days free at any other resort they own and with hotel benefits.

@SteveDekker: Nope, private equity that owned the majority share.

Soooo, Intrawest sold their remaining shares of Whistler in 2012 to a private equity group. How much has really improved at Whistler since then? Intrawest used to be significantly larger than Vail Corp. They had just as bad, if not worse reputation than Vail and are down to only a handful of resorts now, such as Steamboat and Winterpark. Both great parks, but ones that have also slowed down in progress over the last couple of years. If Vail can bring some growth into one of the many resorts they own and use Whistler as a prime example to learn off of, what's the problem? This has the potential to develop more quality bike parks in North America. Based on the premise of, don't ruin a good thing, you think they'd buy the crown jewel of resorts in North America and ruin it? They may be a giant corporation fueled by profit, but they also know how to effectively run a business. They've bought multiple ski hills in the last few years that were in reality struggling financially, and kept them going. Atleast Whistler is now owned by a ski corporation again and not a bunch of hedgefunders. Obviously it would be amazing if whistler was owned buy a bunch of shredders who happened to also be billionaires and new everything about how to run a business that pleased everybody, but we also don't live in a fantasy world.
