I build trails and ride them.

Pinkbike Poll: Who is Responsible After the Digging is Done?
When I build a trail it's for my buddies and I to ride. I probably hid the entrance and you probably have to hike into what could only seem like nowhere to find it. If you do, good work but I take zero responsibility for your safety. My job is not to be your personal trail crew. Maybe I haven't been there in a while or there's some weird sketchy quirk up there right now that I haven't had a chance to take care of. Plus, while I feel you can safely trust me on my building decisions, you should never blindly trust me on things like that unless you know me. It's stupid. Maybe I built an impossible 80 foot creek gap. I wouldn't, but you have no way of knowing. Trailbuilders should always have the safety of trail users in mind, and some are better at that than others. At the end of the day though, we can't be responsible for the safety of our creations forever and ever and ever. If I hear some kid got taken out by a fallen tree on my DH track that I didn't know about I'll feel sorry for him, but never responsible. The ideal service you should expect from a builder is a well constructed initial concept and build. After that if they also happen to stick around and ride and maintain, so much the better. But it can't be expected. Take some personal responsibility and look out for yourself, otherwise the people that build your trails won't be able to do it any more. The finger pointing, responsibility and liability of making someone else responsible for your mistakes is enough to make it worthwhile for the builder to just kick you right the fuck out or leave entirely.

He sent it, but that's definitely part of the trail. Pretty easy too, it's kind of the natural line.

Maybe he likes them. Spec makes great tires, better than Maxxis in a lot of conditions I find.

Mostly stock 2008 Blk Mrkt .357 Complete. Fantastic condition. Ridden primarily as a pumptrack bike by a fairly light and not very aggressive(good) rider. No hard landings. I never went big enough on it to land hard. Only a handful of minor cosmetic scratches. Just enough that you won't have to worry about putting the first scratch in this otherwise mint bike. Wheels are perfectly true and all other parts are in prime working condition. Owned and ridden by someone with more than a passing knowledge of bike maintenance and a deep dislike of annoying sounds, parts damaging themselves or anything not working as it should. This is an incredibly fun and playful bike for everything one might want to use it for and it rides like it's brand new. Specs are listed below. Several, including brake, grips and pedals have been upgraded. Price includes pedals listed, however it could be adjusted if you prefer to use your own or one of the many worse pairs I have in my garage. The same deal applies to grips. I really like both the grips and the pedals and I would be happy to cut you a deal if you don't want them. Will ship anywhere at buyers expense and can arrange drop off between Calgary and Kamloops. Feel free to ask. Reasonable offers are encouraged but no lowballing please. Only willing to trade for $650 cash or items that I can sell for vastly more money.

Nukeproof Launch the Sam Hill Signature Series
Why on earth would Nukeproof not be about selling stuff? Isn't that kind of the point? I strongly suspect that without selling things they would have a very hard time making money.
