Used for maybe 5 rides. Come with finned pads installed and four sets of non-finned spare pads. I've had a change of plan with my build and have gone with a more retro feel to my hardtail so have put Avid BB7s on it.... No rotors or hardware. I might be able to throw in suitable brake adapters depending what you need though. Let me know before you turn up so I can have a dig around. 127cm rear hose - maybe check if that's long enough. 80cm front hose which should be long enough for anything. $100 bucks firm as I'll just keep them for spares if I can't get that for them.

I made it to the end of 'enduroing' down Half Nelson. "Let's get outta here!!" I did.

Two tires. Used on a demo ride apparently and I picked them up a while ago but not used them. Performance Series / dual compound - so bit bit harder compound than the higher end Schwalbe tires, but at least the knobs won't rip off them after 3 rides!

180mm tapered steerer. I've put model year 2014 as I think it is. Not totally sure though, but I don't think they changed since RS dropped the Dual Air versions. Some have black stanchions (ooooooh!). The good: It's nice and shiny! Stanchions are clean Had a lower service and fresh oil in the damper a few rides ago. The 'CTD' function works as it should. The seals don't leak. The less good: As with seemingly most Maxles, this one got a bit chewed up by a previous owner / ape. I cut a new edge to allow the QR mechanism to screw in the axle properly and I've had no issues with it since. Probably not a good idea to reef on it when tightening, but you are not meant to anyway!! Missing the cable hose clamp (oh no!) The low speed compression / threshold adjuster is seized. I took the damper out and can't see an obvious way of releasing it so just rode it was it is. The fork doesn't dive much so maybe the previous owner / ape tried to turn the adjuster up to 11 when it only goes to 10.....(a Spinal Tap reference.....no idea how many clicks it is meant to have because it doesn't bloody move!) I guess the previous owner / ape had a loose fitting crown race so got around the problem by punching the steerer in a few places to effectively increase the diameter. The same as knurling the surface so not a big deal other than it looks a bit ghetto. To be on the same side, I used bearing retainer when installing my crown race. There was no issues, and had to remove the race with a crown race remover so all was good. Short version: it's a 650B 150mm travel fork that goes up and down and locks out, but has a few minor things going on which you may or may not have an issue with. It's a $1000+ fork for $120 bucks though.

Almost new X Fusion HiLo SL seatpost. 420mm x 125mm x 31.6mm. Comes with the original remote, plus a 2014 XT trigger shifter with a ratchet removed so it actuates the seatpost (which is what I used). Current model with the twin bolt head, rather than the crappy one bolt design of the older ones, and the SL model is much lighter than the normal model. Works as new and pretty well unmarked.

Giant Reign 27.5 1 - Review
Shops should just charge per minute for installing internally routed cables / hoses / dorpper posts. It's be interesting to see how long the trend lasted then!

Yeah, you've either got to remove the wheel, or the caliper. One is much quicker than the other ;-)
