650B Think Tank
I have been intrigued by 650b for years. It just makes sense. But what I find difficult to swallow is the the over night killing off of 26". How many riders own 26" right now. Tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands ? People that have invested thousands of dollars into products that suddenly have become obsolete. Not everyone can afford to buy a new bike every year or every 5 years for that matter. How much longer will the industry support high end 26" products ? Eg. Wheels, tires and forks. What happens to all the 26" bikes that no one wants, can't sell or buy parts for. How can I sell my 26" bike to anyone at this point to fund a new 27.5 when it is obvious that the likelyhood that 26" support will be gone in a couple of years. I think the industry jumped into this too quickly without thinking about the effects. Or maybe they know exactly what they are doing and are forcing hundreds of thousands of people to ditch their old bikes because they are faced with an industry that will no longer provide support for 26" products. I am not hating on wheel size at all. I will probably buy 27.5 in the future. Not like I have much choice anyway. But for many riders like myself that have invested $10k or more in the past 2 years on 26" bikes it's no wonder why this is a bitter pill to swallow. I just hope that the industry will continue to support 26" with top end products for at least another 5-10 years to help make the transition easier. But I have feeling they won't.

DT Swiss Spline ONE EX1501 Wheelset - Review
Affordable with monthly installments on your credit card. Many people purchase with CC and justify the purchase by having a small payment every month. $5000 over 5 years is a lot easier than $5000 cash today. I believe this is part to do with the escalating prices of bikes and parts, it's in the culture to buy things we can't afford on credit cards. Dont get me wrong. It's high tech. But damn. It's too expensive.

Finalists Announced for 2014 Bell Built Grants
Not only will it benefit the area. it's right off of I-5. Thousands of riders travel up and down the I-5 corridor to bike destinations. Prescott park just adds to Oregon being a mountain bike destination state. It's literally 15 minutes from the freeway. The city of Medford is also encouraging race events. it will become another race destination on the west coast and it will have legit tracks.

The Prescott park trail system in Oregon is super rocky. The flow trails will definetly be uniquely built. The trail system will have a mix of a little bit of everything. XC to DH. Race events will will be part to the gig. The city of Medford wants to promote the park as a destination for riders and race events.

Reign X1 Frame

$960 USD
Medium 2012 Reign X1 Frame that I received in early 2013 as a warranty replacement for my 2010 frame. Frame is in very good condition with very little use. This frame is an excellent all rounder. Climbs exceptionally well for a bike of its travel. Descends like a mini DH. I love this frame but I am selling to fund a new bike build. I have been very impressed with ride qualities and durability of the Reign X. I have been riding giants and Reign x's since 2008. Time to try a new long travel bike. Frame includes tapered FSA headset, maxle, an extra lower link and DHX 5.0 air shock. Does not include seat, seat post or seat clamp in picture. I also have a Fox DHX 5.0 coil shock with Ti spring for an additional $200.00
