Rider Perspective: Jared Graves Wins On Yeti's Home Soil
Sweet write up. This is definitely more complete and has better pictures than the last few ones. Great on the yeti wins, no better way to introduce a product.

Video: First Look at the 2015 Specialized Demo
Yes, wakaba...because if there were bikes that were leagues better than the "parkbike" demo that's been WC proven (and a f*ckton of racers and joeys) then people would run taped up frames like the days of intense. Oh wait, that hasn't been happening. And 50% stiffness gone? More like the single sided bar on the front triangle *probably* has a much thicker carbon layup, and is just as stiff as having two thinner structures. Ya know, cause that's what the "no go" carbon frames do nowadays...

ISCG MRP G2 bashguard, white

$60 USD
For sale is a white, ISCG old MRP G2. You know the deal...steel back, PC bash guard, slider up top and a roller under. Completely bombproof. I've run this one for less than a season - never hit the guide bottoming out or anything, I've run over logs and overly large rocks, so the bottom bash has a few scrapes. Great condition. Comes with a 36t RaceFace ring if you want (10$), or if you don't want the ring it's 60$. Ring has been used but has minimal wear on the teeth, perfectly straight. Will come with all needed mounting bolts. Selling due to sponsorship deals on more minimal guides. Given that this guide hasn't seen any abuse under my normal riding, I think it's time to downsize the package. PM me with any questions or offers. Shipping within continent only please...I'll upload more detailed pics later. Thanks for looking, and happy trails.

Nope. Mine isn't as progressive as the dhx3 w/ boost valve (ran full boost always & a massive bottom out bumper from a RS shock). You gotta put in enough air to get it to 30% sag. I mean it should take up to 275PSI no problem. Not sure how much PSI I'm running, I can check when I get back into town. Don't forget to add enough compression to set your sag and stroke correctly...while the maestro means you can pedal with 0 clicks of compression, I run 3-4 most times just so that it doesn't have a weak, undamped stroke. If all else fails you might need to take out some volume spacers in the can...or put in a fresh shim stack. I put in fresh shims into my vivid coil for my last bike, and it made a world of difference. Don't know about shim stacks for the Vair though, it's a little harder to work with I assume. Good to hear. I think I'm going to downsize to a 32. Short climbs are fine with 36 and I can get up most stuff...but long/overly steep stuff is a killer.

It's a great climber for the amount of travel. It just has issues if the build is outrageously heavy, or if the gearing is too high. What size ring do you have on there? I'm thinking of downsizing my 36t...but there might be pedal bob once I get down to 32 is what I'm thinking.
