Tomac Magnum 204 (L)

$500 USD
Retro bombproof muscle-bike goodness. Don't like low, slack, light bikes? This is your baby. Whip it and the frame turns into a wing allowing you to fly over wimpy plastic 27.5 wheeled bikes. Made in the USA, just like M-1 Abrams tanks. I rode this bike for a year out West, then moved to England and it's been in storage ever since. It has an original Dorado fork and a Romic rear shock. The Dorado has no scratches on the stanchions and has held it's oil since 2003! Both fork and shock actually still work OK up and down my driveway, but they are pretty old now...I can't really guarantee how much longer they will go. The frame itself is solid without a doubt, but cosmetically is kind of dull, with typical scratches here and there. I guess I fell a lot in 2003. There is a dent in the swingarm where I hit a rock, but it's pretty minor and didn't compromise strength. This bike has got some quirky design features too, like a 100 mm bottom bracket. This extra wide Q-factor is good for stability when running over other foreign made disposable "bikes". It also has an extra wide rear hub, which builds a supremely strong rear wheel. Both the hub and bottom bracket are good quality and should go on a good while. The brakes are the original Hayes units, which also work - at least on my driveway. Oh, and check out that custom brake therapy floating brake! One of a kind baby! Apparently back in 2003 I tried to make up for my falling with my credit card. Bottom line is that there are a lot of old parts and I don't know how they'll do if ridden in anger, but the frame will survive the apocalypse and just looks plain awesome. PRICE DOES NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING. I will get a shipping quote if you are seriously interested and let you know the cost.

REEB Cycles All-Mountain - Review
Yes, kind of chuckled then they said 17.3" are "short chainstays". 16.3" is short. Canfield and Kona have got it figured out.

REEB Cycles All-Mountain - Review
To summarize, "all mountain" covers just about every bike in between a pure XC race bike and a DH bike!

Opinion: We Need A Cyclocross...
Agree with the author, cheap thrills, great idea! Maybe add in a muddy steep hill climb to get back to the top - then you've got the fitness component too.

Banshee Legend MK2 MKII - Large (PRICE DROPPED AGAIN)

$2400 USD
WHY HASN'T ANYONE BOUGHT MY BIKE? THE FRAME IS LIKE NEW - YOU ARE GETTING A COMPLETE BUILD KIT (ALBEIT USED) INCLUDING BOXXER WORLD CUP AND I9 WHEELS FOR FREE! Sorry for shouting, just can't believe it :) I love piecing together my bikes and picking the best of everything, and this bike was exactly what I wanted when I built it up a few years ago right down to the chain ring bolts. Unfortunately, that coincided with my moving from the UK to Ohio, and the result is that this bike is very lightly used and in excellent condition because there is nothing worth riding around here! I've taken one trip to 7 springs in the last 2 years and that resulted in a visit to the hospital, so I've decided reluctantly to sell. Some of the parts were off of my last bike, so there are parts of varying age, but everything is in good working order and ready to race. - Banshee Legend Frame, raw with custom graphics, excellent condition (very few scratches), titanium hardware - CCDB rear shock, 5 years old maybe, good working order, 400 lbs spring, RWC bearings at the lower shock mount OR FOX DHX 4.0 (you choose) - 2010 Boxxer World Cup, works well, some decal damage on lowers (see pic), stanchions perfect, mouse sharpened its teeth on a few areas before I put it on the bike! I had to touch up paint...see pic. - I-9 wheels w/ green spokes - Front rim is DT Swiss 6.1D with a few dinks, rear rim is Mavic EX721, also with a couple dinks - see pictures - Saint cranks and rear derailler, some wear but good working order - Ultegra 11-28 cassette - MRP G2 chainguide, has seen some rocks - Formula The One brakes with 200 mm Hope rotors, recently bled, working well - Point One stem with 6 mm spacer underneath - Deity Black Label bar, 780mm wide - Gussett Slim Jim magnesium pedals, pretty worn - Bontrager FR4 tires with tubes, handcut to roll better, freeride casing...will throw in some other tires since these probably aren't your first pick. See list below. I haven't weighed it lately with the Bontrager tires, but I'm sure it's sub 38 lbs. I will throw in as many of the following tires as you want: Specialized Chunder Kenda Excavator, handcut 2x Maxxis wet scream with centers cut 2x 2.35 Muddy Marys, worn Shipping costs included in the asking price.

An Exclusive and In-Depth Look at Kona's 2014 Carbon Operator
My comment was made with the utmost sympathies for those who have been impacted by gun violence. Right now this nation is still mourning the loss of those small children, not to mention all the other deaths that occur daily from gun violence. I'd rather my bike be an escape from that, not a reminder.
