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.

Personally I think the colors clash...but that's me. Great build spec though! Bet it rides great.

Flat Pedal Foot Placement For Best Results
The point about not wanting to go to triple extension is a good one. I've always sorta pedaled in squares with flats anyways...no worries there. I'm wondering about your claim that "runners don't try to add power with the return of the trail leg". I'd say that this is totally untrue. In sprinting, for instance, tons of power is generated by the trail leg kickback and, stemming from that, the knee drive. Yes, all the *reactive* forces from your stride stem from the drive into the ground. However, it's quite impossible to achieve anything other than a weak, short, upright block start or a weak stride if you don't generate power and drive with the trail leg. Sure, it's a reflexive movement to swing your knee. No, it's not a reflexive movement to generate enough knee drive to achieve good angles or enough power with a proper start. It's an outright absurd thing to claim about how to make power, no matter what distance or style you run.

Opinion: A Secret Trail and an Argument Against E-Bikes
Funny...if you'd read the other coments, you'd see that there's a few people complaining that RC HAS in fact posted pictures of him riding e bikes. Come back and try again when you're done making blanket statements about something you clearly don't know.
