2015 GT Fury WC Size MEDIUM Fork: Rock Shox Boxxer WC Charger (will Include 2 tokens) Rear Shock: Fox DHXRC2 with SLS Spring Wheels: Novatec Demon 650B Tires: 1 set Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5 70%/80%, 1 set Schwalbe Dirty Dan 70%, 1 set Bontrager G Mud 60%/80% Handlebar: Renthal Fatbar Carbon 20 mm rise Stem: Renthal Integra Brakes: Shimano XT w/ ice tech 203 mm rotors and ice tech metallic pads Grips: Ergon GE1 Derailleur: Shimano Zee Shifter: Shimano Saint Chainguide: Shimano Saint Cranks: Shimano Saint Chainring: Renthal SR4 36T Cassette: Shimano Ultegra 10 sp Saddle: Nukeproof Sam Hill Signature Ti Rails This is a solid bike. Really great if you are looking to get into racing. The bike design is really well thought out and super easy to maintain and has a clean design in general. There have actually been instances where I have been able to service the frame pivots between DH practice and my race start time. The bike has a traditional threaded BB, which is nice, and a 150 mm rear end. There are some scratches and scuffs on this bike consistent with east coast downhill racing and riding but there are no dents in the frame and mechanically the bike is solid. No creaks to speak of and I just disassembled, cleaned, and checked all of the bearings/ bushings in the rear end. The fork was re-built in August and the seals were replaced. All in all there is a TON of life left in this bike. THE BIKE IS NOT BEING SOLD WITH PEDALS (even though they are pictured). If you are interested in this bike...make me an offer. It would be ideal if the buyer could pick it up or at least meet somewhere half way but I will ship if need be. If I have to ship this bike, I will most likely end up having to ship the extra tires as a separate shipment...just a heads up if the bike only shows up with the tires that are on it. Thanks for looking!

From the Top: Transition Bikes
@veero: I don't ride a Transition at the moment but I have a vast amount of experience working on FS bikes from nearly all big manufacturers. Giant, GT, Kona, Trek, Cannondale, etc. In Transitions defense, I have never once experienced pivot bolts greased from the factory. I just replaced every bearing in my Kona Process with Enduro bearings and there was no bolt grease. I also completely disassembled my brand new GT Fury linkage because the bike was creaking after 1 ride...again no bolt grease. I think the only reason companies grease bolts (if they are greased) is due to the anodize. That stuff can cause your bolts to seize if not careful. If you are having problems with bolts coming lose, I have had a lot of success with blue thread lock. Also helps with the seizing prevention. Also, does Transition not use sealed bearings in their frames? How did you inspect the bearing grease? Did you physically remove the bearing seal? If you did, I suggest you just replace them now. They'll never be the same. I work a lot with bearings in general and once those seals are pulled after factory install it is usually a death sentence. Transition probably sources those bearings so they are coming pre greased...probably from NSK or NMB or something like that (mfgr label will be on the seal). Transition may have received a bad lot. Insufficient grease is a really difficult thing to catch my means of QC inspection...especially with the variety of sizes Transition is probably using. If you have to get new bearings...the Enduro ones are tits! As for the side load on your shock...that could be a problem. I wouldn't sweat the oil weeping like your shop said. I have the EXACT same shock on my Kona. Just installed it aftermarket so it is new. It weeps oil. Give it time...it will stop. With that shock, if the side load thing is going to give you issue, it will come in the form of noticable air loss. If you constantly find yourself pumping up your shock to maintain your sag settings...that may be from the side load. On mine...I maybe have to check my shock air pressure 1 to 2 times per season.

Banned in the USA: Part 1
This article infuriates me. I don't live in an area that has many or any protected wilderness areas so I don't think any of my trails are in danger of getting banned BUT...some of the trails listed above are on my list of places I would like to ride. Pisgah!?!? I mean come on! NC is gaining some real ground as of late with some epic trails systems now they may get closed? This could be total ignorance and detrimental to the cause but...what happens if you ride in one of these wilderness areas? Are you chased down by a forest ranger on horseback? Does a helicopter follow you back to your vehicle? IF you do get caught, are you looking at jail time or a fine? Is anybody even policing it? I guess what I am saying is...if a bunch of duches start denying us access to our trails simply because they don't like us...F THEM! Solution, get fast, ride the once legal now banned trails, and try and catch me you d!ck$! Because...I could be dead or unable to ride a bike by the time a bill leveraging for riders rights passes through our worthless congress. Again, this could be ignorance on my part but...if someone started closing down my trails because they didn't like me? That is what I would be doing. Wouldn't stop me from riding on them...then I would just deal with the fallout after the fact...if I got caught. Man this article has me pi$$ed!
