Giant Reign XL

$1600 USD
This bike was purchased as a demo bike in store, was ridden once, but has never seen any real trail time. Virtually Brand New, Zero Blemishes. The Reign is the all-mountain bike of choice for any rider looking into a Giant. Frame featuring 150mm of active Maestro suspension, the this is your ticket to mastering technical climbs and the roughest descents. This is the personal choice of bike for most of the employees here at our shop. Top-tube is on the smaller side for an XL, and will fit nearly anyone above the 6' mark. In fact a few of us here have decided to size up, and install a smaller stem (which can be included with the purchase if you desire), to update it to a more agressive, modern feel.

Giant Glory Medium

$2300 USD
I'm selling my 2012 Giant Glory with a BRAND NEW FRONT TRIANGLE. I built this bike as a race bike through the shop I work for, ground up, starting with the frame. The reason why I'm selling it is it doesn't get ridden as much as a bike of this caliber should due to the unreadily available terrain in the area to ride it. I've put a few good shuttle days, 2 races, and a handful of days at the local jump spot through the first summer of 2012. The bike sat for the entire year of 2013 except for 2-3 days total riding, mostly hike-a-bike. The bike is mechanic owned and maintained. The fork has about 6 rides total on the seals and will come with fresh oil. The fork has one main scratch in the right stantion high up on the leg, mostly right at the end of the 200mm mark, and numerous scratches to the lowers. It has been sanded down so that any contact with seals with be super smooth. The shock is second hand, has been rebuilt once by me before I built the bike, and will come with a set of seals that any capable mechanic can rebuild with. The brakes will come with a fresh bleed and new pads. The rear derailleur is brand new, never been ridden and is also coming with a brand new Jagwire Housing and Shimano Cable. The wheels have seen some dents, primarily the rear, but are still tensioned well. The rear tire is worn, but the front has 2 rides total. The cassette has been cut to 6 speeds, the guard is a G-Sport BMX hub guard, and the derailleur has been limited to only the six gears. Parts are as follows: Frame- 2012 Giant Glory - BRAND NEW FRONT TRIANGLE Fork- 2010 Fox 40 RC2 Shock- 2010 Fox DHX5.0 Crankset- Shimano Saint 165mm Chainring- E13 36t Chainguide- MRP G2 32-36 Chain- Wipperman Stainless Connex 9sp Cassette- Shimano SLX 11-21 6sp HubGuard- G-Sport BMX Rear Derailluer- Shimano Saint 9 Sp Shifter- Shimano XTR 9 Sp Cable/Housing- Shimano Cable / Jagware LEX Brakes- Shimano XT F+ R Rotors- Shimano XT 203 IceTech Rotors F+R Hubs- Hope Tech Pro 2 Evo F+R Spokes- DT Swiss Competition F+R Rims- DT Swiss EX500 F+R Tires- Maxxis Minion DHF F+R Tubes- Giant "Heavy Duty" DH tubes Presta Handlebar- Race Face Atlas 19mm rise, cut to 760mm Stem- Sunline 50mm Grips- ODI Troy Lee Designs Blk Seatpost- Thomson Elite Seat- Fizik Gobi Headset- Cane Creek 40s Zero Stack Buyer pays Shipping.

2013 Red Bull Rampage: Top 3 Winning Runs
Zink didn't just take it easy because of the shock and awe of his success after the flip. One of the event staff got in his way on the road on the way into the same jump Kyle hit next to the boner log. Thus the "bad luck" Cam was referring to in his interview. The event staff was shit this year btw. No one knew where anyone was going, and multiple punk-ass suburban rich kids on a power trip trying to do crowd control.

Maxxis, Magura, and e*thirteen - Interbike 2013
It is funny actually how the industry works in that fashion. Everyone is trying to regain the feel of their hard tail from 10 years ago, but don't want a sore ass. Firm for up, soft for down. I myself will also turn the fork to 'descend' mode for tricky, rocky, tight, steep climbing. Allows me to shift my weight around more, and the bike stays planted. However, I'll find myself turning the fork to 'trail' mode for descending. The fork doesn't dive, and it allows me to push the bike harder through the rough and corners.

There is a place for both high TPI and low TPI. The more threads you add, the less rubber you get inside the tire. High TPI makes for a nice, lightweight, supple tire, good for xc and cx. But with less rubber, more fabric, this also makes for quite fragile tires that will be prone to sidewall tears and punctures. DH tires are low fabric, high rubber for durability reasons. Adds a bit of weight, but very resistant to anything you throw at it.

Results: Mens DH - Hafjell World Cup
So... I've been up since 5am GMT and never saw the race broadcasted. I've been watching red bull tv waiting for it to come on. But all I see is the Sebastian Vettel bullshIt on repeat. Glad you guys got to watch the race.
