Join Kona in the Alps on the All New 2016 Precepts - Video
Could someone explain the main differences between the process and precept in terms of suspension kinematics, ride and manufacture? I'm just wondering what makes this bike their budget offering. There must be differences in terms of the frames performance, or is it down to the spec of the kit on the bike too? Cheers.

BTR Fabrications' New 650B Ranger Demo Bike
Considering the sort of hard tail bike you can get for £1000 the cost of this frame seems a little excessive. I understand that it's hand built in a shed and they'll only sell a few, but wow, that's an eye watering price for 11 tubes of steel welded together.

Selling for a friend: He has recently started up his own company and is struggling to find time to ride it. This is a reluctant sale, but the bike is currently gathering dust and deserves to be ridden more. The bike has been extensively overhauled recently. New forks, brakes, bars, and drive train have been added. Everything is fully functional and good working order. The frame has new pivot bearings, endcaps and pins and the shock has new bushings fitted. Frame: Santa Cruz Bullit Forks: Rock Shox Totem DH Shock: Fox DHX 3.0 Wheels: Hope Pro 2 with Halo SAS rims Tyres: Maxxis High Roller Rear mech: SRAM X9 Short cage Chain ring: RaceFace Bottom bracket: RaceFace Shifter: SRAM X7 Chainguide: MRP G2 Cranks: RaceFace Evolve DH Pedals: DMR V12 magnesium Brakes: Hope Mono with Goodridge braided hoses Bars: Renthal Fatbar Headset: Chris King Grips: ODI lock-on Stem: Cannondale Saddle: WTB Pivot Seatpost: RaceFace Any queries, then please message me on here. I'll get back to you ASAP and get in touch with my friend to confirm any details/offers. Thanks for looking.

Unfortunately, I have decided that it is time to sell my Froggy. It doesn't get ridden anywhere near as much as it deserves; life just gets in the way and I don't have the time to spend out on it. This has been a hard decision to make, but I don't feel like I can leave it sat around any longer. This bike has not been ridden a great deal in the past three years. I bought the bike as the standard 318 model and have since made upgrades to it to make it more of a mini-DH bike. I upgraded the Domain forks to Totems, put a wider bar on, made it single ring upfront and upgraded the drive train (SLX to XT rear mech, Deore to SLX shifter). Everything is in working order and the complete component list is below. The only issue is a slight marking to the fork stanchion (this can be seen in the pictures). I managed to do this during transport by allowing the front disc to rub against the stanchion. Although the stanchion is marked there is no burring and it does not affect the performance of the fork. The marking cannot be felt by rubbing your finger across it. Frame: Alloy 7005 Multibutted Hydroformed OST 180 mm Rear Shock: Fox Van R Spring 300 Fork: RockShox Totem DH Coil 180mm Tapered steerer. Chain Device: Superstar Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT Shadow Shifter: Shimano SLX Chainset: Truvativ Hussefelt Bashguard: Raceface Bottom Bracket: Truvativ Howitzer XR Cassette: Shimano HG50 9 Speed 11-34 tooth range Chain: Shimano HG53 Front Brake: Formula ORO K18 200 rotors Rear Brake: Formula ORO K18 200 rotors Handlebars: Funn Fatboy Stem: Syncros FR50 50 mm Headset: Nukeproof Rims: Alex FR32 Front Hub: LP Rear Hub: Shimano M525 Front Tyre: Continental Rubberqueen TR 26X2,40 Rear Tyre: Continental Rubberqueen TR 26X2,40 Saddle: Charge Cro-Mo Seatpost: LP XC Comp 6061 31.6X350 The bike is very good condition. Everything works fine and is in good condition. It does, however, have scuffs and scratches on the frame as you would expect from a second hand bike. If you are interested or would like to know anything more, then please get in touch via Pinkbike message. Thanks Martin

Northern Enduro Championships and PMBA Enduro Series Round Three
Is it possible to ride the full route on a normal day? I've been to Lee Quarry quite a few times and would love to add more to the route. I'll check out some segements on Strava.
