Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year
if March of 2015 took place in the year of 2014, perhaps it would be the innovation of the year. Instead, it has been the tease of the year.

When the wheel was invented, it was one more thing that could break... so let's keep dragging stuff behind a horse. *cue sliding/grinding sound*

Light Bicycle carbon 27.5" 35mm wide hookless rims, pair

$200 USD
I have a pair of Light Bicycle 27.5" carbon 35mm wide hookless rims. Here are the specs: -All-mountain carbon fiber lay-up, not the heavier DH layup -28 hole for both(28H Hope Pro2 Evo's are cheaper) -Uni-directional matte finish -35mm outer, 30mm inner width. -400g +/- 15g -2nd generation design that uses the latest Light-Bicycle manufacturing process for a stronger and more consistent rim. I built up both wheels, BUT 1 rim saw no riding whatsoever. I was doing a 27.5 conversion and the rear didn't clear so it was taken apart right away and sat in my closet unused. Both rims were bought in August of 2014 and the 1 rim that was used was a front wheel. It was used until January of 2015. Condition: It's actually hard to tell the used rim from the unused rim. Carbon doesn't bend or get out of round like aluminum does. There are only a few, very tiny surface scratches which can barely be seen. All the close-up photos feature the cosmetic surface imperfection, if you can find it in the photo. There are absolutely no cracks, or actually any sign, besides rim tape residue, that it was even used. Let me know if you have any questions. If you want to see them, I'm willing to meet you to show the rims. If you're in Canada, I can meet you in Bellingham, which is ~30 minutes below the border and you can do some riding at Galbraith. Feel free to text.

ALL DONE: Ask Us Anything with WTB -Tubeless Technology
What is the most important thing that you guys have learned about tread design? We know about your emphasis on a bead-rim interface that adheres to a standard for proper sealing, but what would you say makes your tread design better than the competition? I love the peace of mind that comes with UST when going tubeless, but I think one factor that keeps my customers from purchasing WTB is because the tread patterns can be a little different compared to the majority of the tires out there. Minions, Hans Dampfs, and Magic Mary's seem to be the most common up here in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks, WTB!

Santa Cruz Blur TRc Carbon Frame

$1100 USD
I built up a brand new Blur TRc in late August and have just disassembled it, cleaned it, and greased the bearings. -142x12mm DT Swiss RWS thru-axle included. -The Santa Cruz grease gun will be included. -Frame weight with headset cups(not included) is 4.4lbs!!! -Includes ti shock bolts, but no shock. It utilizes a 7.875x2.0 AKA 200x50mm shock, so you can purchase your own DB Inline instead of a stock shock. -Internal dropper post routing is featured on this frame. -The 44/49 tapered headtube can accommodate an angleset if you want to slacken the bike out even more than its already slack(for 125mm) 68 degree head tube angle. Excellent, lightweight frame with a low BB and slack head angle(for a 125mm travel bike). It pops off lips and it's so much easier to throw around because of its shorter travel, yet it still handles everything I rode on my 6" travel bike because of the geometry. Shorter chainstays than 27.5" bikes make this bike very flickable, easier to manual, yet pedals with incredible acceleration for an all-day ride with climbing. Only minor signs of use: cable rub, signs of chain contact on the chainstay protector(although both chainstay and seatstay were mostly wrapped during riding), and built up in August 2014, so it has not had a long life. No damage to the carbon whatsoever, anywhere on the frame! Let me know if you have any questions. For your peace of mind, I always take photos of the open box with the item inside at the shipping counter scale and provide tracking info ASAP. Thanks. -Ron

RockShox 27.5" Pike RCT3 Dual Position 140/110mm OR 160/130

$700 USD
Hello I have a 2015 RockShox Pike RCT3(the one with low speed compression adjust on top of the blue dial) for a 27.5" wheel. I currently have the travel set to a rare 140/110mm for the dual position setting, which makes it an awesome trail fork with a lot of versatility. I ALSO have the stock 160/130 air spring, which I can swap back on if you'd like. If you'd like to swap back and forth, we can talk about selling the fork with the 2 air spring options. Condition: -The fork is in excellent mechanical condition, having been installed in late August. The fork is perfect except for very minor cosmetic imperfections in the lowers and 1 side of the crown that can be clearly seen in the photos. -The seals are still in excellent condition, and I'll include a spare dust/oil seal kit. -The steerer tube is tapered and 8 1/4" inches long or about 21cm. -The Maxle is intact, doesn't even have 1 mark on it, and even has the original warning sticker on it. -The stanchions are immaculate. -Absolutely no leaks or oil accumulation. If you have any questions, let me know. To provide peace of mind, I take paypal, take photos of the open package with the fork in it on the FedEx or UPS counter and provide tracking the very minute that I get it. If you live close to Seattle or in British Columbia, I'm willing to drive part way to meet you. Feel free to text or call. Thanks. -Ron

Upgrade your Fox 34: NEW revised CTD FIT Factory damper

$150 USD
Hello, I have a brand new Fox 34 CTD Factory w/Trail Adjust 26" with the revised CTD FIT damper found on the upper end forks . I'm going to take the damper out of the fork before the it is even used, so if you happen to have a Fox 34 with the open bath evolution series, or a 2013 or earlier 34, Fox significantly revised the CTD damper for 2014. The 2013 Fox CTD got horrendous reviews and complaints and Mike Levy did a review on the revised 2014 damper to explain how much better it was in this article: http://www.pinkbike.com/news/FOX-34-TALAS-FLOAT-X-FIRST-IMPRESSIONS.html "While the fork's increased suppleness was nice, it was the re-worked CTD damper that was most appreciated. It's no secret that the 2013 CTD damper, with its under damped compression stroke, left a lot of more aggressive trail riders a little underwhelmed, and the fork's 'Descend' mode was basically unusable for this reason." - from the article Let me know if you have any questions or offers. This includes everything on the damper: top cap, dials, full damper, etc. I will have photos soon.

Marzocchi 380 C2R2 Titanium - Review
There's a non Ti spring version with the same damper and no SKF seals... $50 cost... for much less. I'm REALLY considering that option. It's 6.5 lbs vs 6.something for the expensive Ti version.
