I live by the "run what ya brung" philosophy. Just have fun with whatever bike you have.

Sam Blenkinsop to Race 2016 Enduro World Series
I raced Mega in 2007 and Blenki raced it on his DH bike and ended up 7th. Everyone thought it was nuts somebody could do so well on a dual crown big rig. On some of the uphill sections he would just run with his bike.

This made me think back on my job as a tire product manager about a dozen years ago. I used to hold a tire over my head and stare at the tread pattern. I would imagine I was the trail and how to best shape the knobbies and sipping to best grab hold of me. I think my co-workers thought I was a bit nuts. Merry Christmas buddy and thanks for another great year of fun videos and comments.

2013 Norco Sight Killer B-3. $1325 USD. Will ship in the USA only. Shipping costs not included. Typically will do business using Paypal because of protections for both buyer and seller. Frame was used for 1 year but with a different build kit and is in good condition. I took all the stock parts off and saved them while I used the frame. Now that I'm selling I put all the original parts back on. Three exceptions to a bone stock build include. 1. the brakes Avid Elixir 5 are an upgrade over the original (Avid Elixir 1). 2. The X-Fusion rear shock didn't work after the first week. I had a SR Suntour Durolux RC that I put on instead. 3. Maxxis High Roller II tires. 2013 // SIGHT KILLER B-3 FRAMESET FRAME 2013 Sight 650B 140 mm travel trail FORK Rockshox Sektor TK solo air 140mm, 15mm 650B REAR SHOCK SR Suntour Durolux RC WHEELS RIMS Sun Inferno 25 650 B TIRES Maxxis High Roller II 27.5 x 2.35 TUBES N/A FRONT HUB Formula 15 mm REAR HUB Formula 142 x 12 SPOKES/NIPPLES N/A DRIVETRAIN SHIFTER FRONT Shimano Deore SHIFTER REAR Shimano Deore FRONT DERAILLEUR Shimano SLX direct mount FD REAR DERAILLEUR Shimano Deore 10 speed RD CASSETTE Deore CS HG 62 CRANKSET FSA Comet 24/38 10 speed Mega Exo PEDALS N/A CHAIN Sram PC-1031 COMPONENTS SEAT POST Norco alloy 2014 double bolt seatpost 30.9 mm SEAT POST CLAMP Norco design alloy QR with s-post cable guide SADDLE WTB Silverado Comp SHIFTER CASING Jagwire LEX housing HEADSET FSA #57B ( tapered internal ) 1.5" to 1-1/8" HEADSET SPACER 1 x 10 mm and 2 x 5 mm plastic TOP CAP Black alloy STEM Norco short reach 3D forged HANDLEBAR Norco 1" rise bar 740 mm width , 6061 alloy GRIPS T-One lock on FRONT BRAKE Avid Elixer 5 hydraulic disc / 180 mm rotor REAR BRAKE Avid Elixer 5 hydraulic disc / 160 mm rotor CHAIN TENSIONER N/A BRAKE LEVERS Avid Elixer 5 hydraulic disc BRAKE CABLE CASING N/A

Interview: Eric Carter's Magic Season
Hey EC and Tippie....two of my favorite people on a PB forum, that trip to Ray's took days for my face to not cramp up from laughing so much. https://www.flickr.com/photos/srsuntourwerx/sets/72157640782900283/ EC great interview, stoked people have another insight into all your bring to the MTB world....pretty rad to add WC team manager to the list of "done that"....successfully.
