It's time to pass my current bike on - It's an 09 giant reign X, 170mm travel front and rear. Not a single part is stock. Rides fantastic, but it's too much bike for me. It absolutely shreds highland, jiminy, plattekill, and all the big NE mountains I've taken it to and raced DH with. However, in the past year it's only been out a couple of race and a few weekends on chairlifts isn't enough for this bike. I'm the second owner, the first owner must have barely used it since it came with the OEM spec tires on it and they weren't worn, frame was impeccable, etc. Doesn't show much use, since I really didn't get to use it much since I'm in college now...a few scratches on the headtube from shuttling, cable rub on the frame and that's it. Complete build w/ pedals, dropper, freeride tubes, and an MRP AMG guide instead of the gamut SXC (much lighter) that's on it now, came out to 32 and change on the scale, so it's not that heavy. Wheels are UST tubeless compatible so if you wanted to drop a pound or so right off the bat, lighter tires and tubeless will get you there, I just never bothered. TONS of new parts on it! Frame: Size SM (I'm 5'9 and it works for me), anodized grey Fork: 2013 Rockshox lyrik RC2DH, solo air - chips on lower of fork, nothing bad Shock: 2014 Rockshox Vivid air R2CDH, serviced by RS last season Wheels: 08 (?) Crossmax XT UST ready wheels, both run true, rear wheel has a small flat spot in it, never been a problem Seatpost: 2014 Rockshox Reverb - may need a bleed, there's a little bit of sag (10mm or so) when I sit on it, or maybe the air spring just isn't sealed right Brakes: 2014 Shimano SLX front, XT rear, 180/160mm rotors Chainguide: Gamut trail SXC, not the MRP currently pictured Chainring: Gamut 32T Narrow/Wide Derailleur/shifter: XT, 9 speed Bar: TruVativ BooBar, ODI ruffian lock ons Stem: RaceFace D2 stem (mad heavy, but I never bothered to replace it, nice rise/length) Tires: Maxxis HRII, EXO, 2.4, plenty of tread left I'll ship within the continent at buyer's expense/risk, I've shipped one bike before and it went great, it's just an annoying ass process. I'd prefer a local pickup, or I'm willing to meet somewhere if somebody local wants it. Pretty firm on the price, but 1) make me any non-douchey, non-lowball offer you want and the worst I can say is no, and 2) I'll lower the price a little bit if you don't want the reverb - it would be replaced with a raceface evolve seatpost in that case. I would be willing to trade+cash for something newer and with less travel...knolly chilcotin, warden...ibis mojo...a newer reign or giant trace, cannondale jekyll. Basically, either a 150mm bike or something really light with 160mm travel would be ideal, I just rarely use this bike for freeride or more aggressive stuff. With college, track, lifting, etc...I just don't have the time to have such a capable bike anymore. I'd rather have a ligher all mountain/trailbike that I could take out and do XC on the weekends instead of just doing a few trips a year. PM me any questions, and I'll respond ASAP. Check out my seller history, I've never had any problems with anyone and I've sold two bikes and a bunch of parts on here. Thanks for looking, and happy trails!

Video: World Cup Test Event at Windham Bike Park
I went to the Windham WC last year expecting it to be tame and lame from PB comments and preview videos. As others have said, it's not just about the's still a rough, fast east coast tech style track. But, it's also a big mountain, and a good town that can SUPPORT the number of people there. Block party, fireworks, dj,'s all part of what makes the race enjoyable for the spectators. If you're sitting at home watching the redbull broadcast, I agree, it's not as exciting as other stops. But don't shit on it just because.
