Motobecane Night Train

$1000 CAD
Price is firm. Pick-up is in Brooklin. If the ad is up, the bike is still available. No need to contact me asking “Is this still available?” Reason for selling: I’m building myself up a full carbon beast for this winter. Priced to sell. Pick this up before the fall/winter rush. For sale is a Motobecane Night Train fat bike. Size Medium / 17.5”. Good for riders 5’ 8” to 6’ tall. The bike is virtually new. If you are unfamiliar with Motobecane, it is a brand distributed by BikesDirect. They are a direct-to-consumer retailer that skips the local bike store. They offer the entire range from basic bikes all the way up to high performance models. They offer incredible value through using “catalogue” frames from the big manufacturers while cutting out the distributors/bike stores. The Motobecane Night Train is no different. The frame/fork is made by Kinesis (the top Taiwanese aluminum frame manufacturer). Kinesis even makes the 9:Zero:7 aluminum frames . This has a latest 197x12 thru axle rear end. No quick-releases to mess with. (2016 version, specs are different than the 2014 version I’m selling. But frame/fork are identical). Current version is now $1,400 USD (~$1,850 CAD + tax = $2,100…and you have to pickup across the border). This Motobecane Night Train frame is currently shared by the Felt Double D and Apollo Stout. (Both of which cost a lot more and have much lower specs). Key highlights of this Night Train are: SRAM Guide RS brakes, SRAM X9 Derailleur, Sram X7 Shifters, Weinmann Factory Drilled Rims, Novatec Hubs, Thru-Axle front and rear. I am the original owner and it is about 18 months old. It has a total of ~150km on the bike. However, many parts are brand new with zero kilometres. I bought this bike for winter/snow riding. It has never seen dirt. With this past winter’s mildeness, I barely rode it. There very few if any scratches or scuffs on the frame/fork. You will see a very tiny ding on the top tube from transport. It is virtually impossible to see if I didn’t point it out, but full disclosure. When I first got this bike, I tore it down to the frame so I could inspect everything and re-build it from the ground up. I also added all of my upgrades at that time, so many parts are brand new. See below: Upgrades: - 26 x 2.6 DH tubes and purssple duct-tape rim strips. The most important upgrade as it lowered total rotational weight by about 3 pounds! - Fizik Gobi Manganese Saddle Brand new parts (zero kilometres): - Bar - Stem - Post - Front Derailleur (X7) - Front Shifter/cable/housing (X7) - Crankset, bottom bracket and Chainrings (no pedals ever installed) (Samox) - Seat post collar Parts with about 100km’s on them: - Cassette (PG1030) - Fork (Alloy) - Wheels & Tires (Weinmann DHL80 factory drilled + Novatec Hubs) Parts with full 150km’s on them: - Frame - Headset (FSA) - Chain (KMC SL) - Rear Derailleur (X9) - Brakes/Rotors (Guide RS + Centreline rotors)

Küat Sherpa Platform Rack - Rare White Finish

$350 CAD
For sale is a Kuat Sherpa in rare white powder coated finish. If you’re looking at this ad then you know how good and rare Kuat racks are in Canada. Especially in the limited-run white finish. The Sherpa is a dedicated 2-bike rack, for road, hybrid, touring and mountain bikes. It can accommodate downhill DH bikes that are sub 40 pounds. It is an all aluminum construction which results in a feather weight of only 25 pounds. This can easily be installed and manouvered with one hand. This rack fits both 1.25” and 2.0” hitch receivers. It is natively 1.25” and will come with the aluminum 2.0” adaptor. Also included is the original hitch pin, cylinder lock, two keys, Kuat anodized orange key ring/bottle opener, and Kuat 6’ security cable, and the original hemp baggie that all the accessories were delivered in. What is NOT included from original is the 20” wheel adaptor. This broke the first time I tried using it. I never bothered replacing it. They are about $10 USD to replace if you really need it. I am the original owner and I have used this rack for 3 seasons and it has faithfully delivered on its promise of being a lightweight, simple, well thought-out rack. And customer service is amazing. You will see that one rear wheel tray is brand new never used. I broke the strap in storage this winter. Kuat didn’t have the “grey” wheel holder available for order on their website (only black), so when I asked them if this colour was available, they apologized that the strap broke and sent me a free replacement with free shipping. Amazing customer service. The rack was never used in the winter. Summer only. And stored in the garage most of the time when not in use. Combined with the fact that it is mostly aluminum, you will see from the pictures that there is essentially no corrosion/rust/etc. at all. Just a little corrosion on the non-aluminum hardware. The only reason I am selling is that I got a fat bike with true 4.8” tires for this upcoming winter season and this rack will only fit up to 29+ x 3” tires. So I regrettably have to part with this rack to get something that will fit 4.8” tires. Price is firm. I am NOT in a rush to get rid of this rack, so no lowball offers please. Lowball offers will not be responded to. If I don’t respond to you, you know why. This rack sells for $600+ Tax CAD ($678 total). And there are no Kuat Racks even listed on Kijiji (Ontario) and one on Pinkbike (in North Vancouver). Pick-up is in Brooklin.

Blackspire Badger C Carbon Crankset - Review
Closer to $350 USD at today's FX rate. I like how responsive they are. Including the tool, changing to stainless bearing races, including rubber ends...this is a great deal vs. the NEXT SL. I wonder where RF found an extra +100g in weight savings? I'm also assuming the review is comparing the stiffness to the Next SL's...lighter and stiffer?

Magura Vyron Wireless Dropper Post - First Ride
Why NiMH? Lithium has higher power density, less self-discharge, more shape/size options for packaging, less voltage sag in discharge cycle, etc...And arguably longer useful life. And the dead NiMH battery must be sent back to Magura for replacement. So what is the time and cost for such service?

The Definitive Guide to the East Coast Open Canada Cup
@TBLeldarado: As a local Blue Mountain resort race series...I see no problem holding it on the same weekend. Those racing DH are not likely also racing a 24 hr. event. So attendance doesn't suffer. But for a Canada Cup, part of it is the entire event/promotion objective is to create an entire weekend-long festival/event/atmostphere with other supporting event/races/etc. For that, you NEED the general MTB community out for this to make it a success. Other than hopefully getting some good racers coming out to snatch some points, there's a good chance it'll be a pretty dull atmosphere in the village and on the side of the course....unless you count all those foreign tourists.

The Definitive Guide to the East Coast Open Canada Cup
It's too bad they put this on the same weekend when thousands of mountain bikers will be at the 24 Hour of Summer Solstice. I'll be participating at the 24 hrs. and won't be able to head up to Blue to watch.

A Nation's Pride: XCO World Cup Round 3, La Bresse
It's amazing how he Racing Ralph/Rocket Ron are the pro's choice for such a slick/muddy course. I must be riding too much rubber for my local trails. Time to go semi-slicks.

Andrea Tiberi's FRM Anakin - XCO World Cup Round 3, La Bresse
Schurter's new "scale" debuted last week was rumoured to be maybe 850-900g, right?

First Ride: SRAM's 12-Speed Eagle Drivetrain
The only real news here is the 50T cog. This would be real news if OneUp didn't release the Shark earlier this week. Unfortunately Sram was one-up'd by OneUp. And...the Shark is ready for sale/delivery while the Eagle won't be ready for another 3 months. The fact that there's one more gear (i.e. closer ratios) isn't as significant to the average dirt rider as it would to a roadie.
