That's what I have been hearing too. The only thing that has me kinda wigged out about that is...there was a sticker on the Fox shock on my Fury that said something to the effect of "Shock Tune XXXXX". I am just a bit afraid that GT and Fox collaborated on this bad boy to get the ultimate tune for the bikes leverage ratio and if I switch to the x2 I'll loose that. Maybe I wouldn't even notice the difference though. If I could put that x2 on it though...you're right...that thing looks and sounds really promising.

Nice bike! Where did you get the ti spring and did you buy the same weight as the steel? I just bought one of these myself and was going to upgrade the spring. Looking for some advice.

Is This The World's First 'Crowd Designed' Bike?
I agree, especially if you compare the numbers. Process...you ARE the father! That being said I own a process and the geo is spot on so...I imagine this bike would be pretty sweet.

Personally, I have never been screwed by any online outfit and I do about 5-8K worth of business per year on line alone. I have however been screwed by local bike shops. Just one for example, I was trying to support my LBS so I brought a manitou circus fork in for a basic service (didn't buy the fork at the shop). I could have very easily just sent the fork out to Shockspital or any one of the service centers Manitou recommends. Shockspital would have charged me 130 for the service. All told with shipping it would have been 150 bucks. So I pull the fork off my bike, bring it to my LBS, it sits there for 2 weeks, then they call me and tell me they can't service it and it needs to be sent out. So, they ended up sending it to Shockspital anyway because there wasn't a wrench there who knew how to service the fork. So I had to wait another 2 weeks for it to be turned around at Shockspital. So 4 weeks later they call me to tell me its ready...and the service cost 170. So I paid a 20 dollar luxury tax so the shop could put it in a box...that shockspital provided. Another example, I went to a different lbs for some basics. Bought 4' of shifter cable housing, 4' of brake cable housing, 2 road brake cables, 2 shifter cables, 6 cable ends, about a dozen ferrules, and 2 standard 700c road bike tubes. The shop charged me 70 bucks! I literally almost left all the stuff on the counter and walked out. I could have purchased all that on line for 1/2 the cost after shipping! Maybe it is just shops in my area but...at the end of the day I feel that shops in my area turn the screws to people who don't show loyalty to their store. I'm sure it is different state by state and country by country and there are some actual decent shops out there, they just don't seem to exist here. Frankly the "Fraternity" mentality is chasing customers away to big box stores or online shopping. Ultimately it will be to the demise of LBS.

That's a good point. Owning a shop is a challenging business for sure. Margins are super tight especially on bikes and at the end of the day you gotta put food on the table. The thing that is frustrating (to me anyway) is it seems like every time you go into a brick and mortar shop now a days to purchase something...it's almost like you have to pay a luxury tax to do so. Saint cranks for example, Chain Reaction is selling them for 175 bucks for the 83 mm version without a chainring. If I strolled to my local shop to order them, A.) they wouldn't have them in stock, and B.) if the ordered them for me they would have no problem charging me 299. So by shopping local I have to pay a 125 dollar luxury tax and wait longer to have the part. Just like automation technology eliminated manufacturing jobs, it seems like the internet is making it tougher for small retail outfits to stay afloat. Not saying this is a good thing, believe me I like walking into shops to actually see the new gear in person and it is good to have them in a pinch but...anymore it seems like the only business model that could work for a shop is...carry no inventory other than the basics (cables, chain, brake pads, etc), tell your customers to buy all their stuff online, then have them bring the online goods into your shop and bill them labor to install said parts.

Airborne Pathogen DH w/ TON of Extras

$2800 USD
The bike is in nearly perfect mechanical condition and super quiet. The only thing that could make this bike more quiet than it already is would be a clutch type rear derailleur. There are a couple scratches on the frame and handlebar (pictured) but the fork is flawless. The fork looks almost as new as when I bought it at the beginning of the year. There is a little bit of discoloration on the stanchion (pictured) but it was there when I bought the fork (new) and it is not a scratch. None of the suspension seals are leaking and the fork performs as new. I had the brakes bled at Snowshoe Resort in August of this year and since then they have been issue free for me. The rear derailleur, although scratched, shifts flawlessly through all the gears. The wheels have some scratches but are nearly perfectly true. Spank wheels from my experience are almost indestructible. The bike is spec'ed as follows: Fork: Marzocchi 380 C2R2 Ti (26/27.5) Rear Shock: Fox DHX 5.0 Wheels: Spank Spoon 32 Tires: Kenda Honey Badger 90% (RSR Compound Front) Handlebar: Spank 777 Grips: Eargon GE1 Grips Brakes: Avid Elixir R's (New bleed done on Aug 2015) Rotors: (Hayes 203F 180R) Seatpost: Easton Carbon Saddle: SDG Ti Rails Rear Der: Sram X9 10 Speed Shifter: Sram X9 10 Speed Chainguide: Straightline Silent Guide Cranks: Truvativ Decendant 36T (BB Replaced Sept 2015) Stem: Deity Fantom (48 55) Pedals: Spank Spike Cassette: Sram DH 10 speed In addition to the bike, I am selling a TON of extra parts to keep this bike running for a long time. All of this stuff is included in the price so if you buy the bike you also get the extras free of charge. The extras include: Wheels: Shimano Saint Hubs with Sun MTX 33 wheels and SLX Centerlock Rotors (203/180) - Just re-built the front hub. Rear hub is still smooth. Rims have some dings and such but MTX hoops are cheap and rim transfers aren't that complicated...and these were my back-up's. Brake Pads: 2 pair new in packaging. Frame Hardware: - All new pivot bearings (bearings on frame are still good) - Extra rear dropouts - Extra pivot bolts (including main) Extra Shock: X-Fusion Vector Coil Extra Tires: - Set Maxxis DHF's 70% - Set Specialized Storms (mud spikes) 80% - 1 Maxxis Wet Scream (mud spike) New - Set Schwalbe Muddy Mary 70% This package is pretty much everything someone would need if they wanted to get into the sport of DH racing or even just DH in general. It would be excellent for someone just getting into it at the CAT 3 level but would also be well placed at a CAT 2 level. I raced this bike for a year at the CAT 1 level and was able to be fairly competitive (usually top 4) against people with sub 38 lb 27.5 wheel bikes. At the end of the day, this was probably the most reliable bike in my garage and it is super easy to wrench on post race (which is probably why it still runs so smooth). In terms of shipping, these items would probably arrive in multiple boxes over multiple days. So don't be alarmed if the bike shows up first then the extras start pouring in later. Ideally, I would like to sell this local pick up only. If I have to ship it somewhere, I will cover the first 200 bucks only. Anything over 200 bucks (including the bike packaging at a shop) is on the buyer. From my experience, if I am covering the first 200 bucks, the buyer may only be responsible for an additional 100 or less. Text or call at: (four_one_two) - (four_one_seven) - (one_four_eight_three) Thanks for looking!
