Hey Jon, will OneUp socks make me walk up steeper climbs?

3-2.5 grade titanium frame (rare Kona Haole frame - first road bike they made. Destickered). From 1994. 54cm frame measured center of BB to center of top tube - old school medium. Non-compact geometry. Almost new full carbon fiber fork. I can potentially throw in the older carbon fork. Wheels - American Classic hubs. DT spokes. DT Swiss RR 1.1 rims. Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tires. Older Dura-Ace brakes. Shimano R600 brake levers. Drivetrain - Dura-Ace 9sp cassette, Dura Ace chain,Dura-Ace front derailleur, Ultegra rear derailleur, Shimano bar end shifters, Sugino crankset (old school Syncros 34t small ring with original Sugino large ring - I guess you might want a larger large ring if you want to get that KOM down Cypress but I like the set up). Other stuff: Tune seatpost with titanium hardware. Selle Italia saddle. Cinelli bar Fizik tape Easton stem FSA Orbit X headset Weight - 17.5lb without pedals. I'm including some random pedals. Everything on this bike is in great condition and mechanic owned. No drive wear. No significant rim wear. Many things like the seatpost, headset etc are pretty well new. Selling (if I can get a good price....) because I'm a mountain biker at heart and this just hangs on the wall despite taking a long time building it up. Unique, fast and comfortable. ***May consider partial trades including 31.6mm Reverb with remote under left side of bar, interesting 'beater' bike that I can ride with my dog....., retro MTB stuff such as wheels or derailleurs from early 90's, really nice 15mm / 142 hubs (or wheels but I'm looking to build up a decent set of tubeless 650B wheels)*** *****Local pickup only!!*****

Video: Dean Tennant - Growing Pains
Awesome riding, trails and video, but I always find terms like 'slaughter more fresh corners' really painful, especially when ironically Dean rode with a lot of finesse and with minimal impact to the trails. Maybe I'm just an old fart, but it seems like every other edit refers to destroying the trails in one form or another and it's just ammunition to the haterz like M0nica Cr@ver, M1ke Vandertwat etc....

First Look: Bold Linkin Trail
Yep. It could also be argued that Manitou had their shocks built into their seatstays ;-) And then there's all the soft tails....Moots etc.

A refreshing lack of bumbags / fanny(!) packs in this vid.

Now Over: Norco Ask Us Anything - DH Geometry and Suspension Kinematics
Do you find it annoying when people ignore the time requests and ask questions early? Will Norco ever rebrand? They make some great bikes now but 'Norco' sounds like something from the mining industry from the 1960s.

Video: From Dust Till Town - The Full Story
There's something to be said for quality over quantity. There was a time when you had to wait a year for the next Earthed and the like. Now there's just a million 'edits' and they are all pretty well boring and shit. And all the slow-mo / 'arty' stuff can piss off as well. More Warner strapped to a hovercraft fan please :D

Now a pair of tires as I am selling both the ones that I have. $40 for the pair As above. Evo Line. Tubeless Ready. Folding bead. Pace Star compound (to save you potentially 5 hours trying to figure out what the eff 'Pace Star' means, it's a reasonably firm compound - good for rear wheels or for cutting down rolling resistance - maybe not ideal for riding Lower Ladies on a wet day). Still has the little 'knobs' from manufacturing on most of the tire knobs so hardly used. Maybe trade for a decent 760mm or wider bar. Or some Hollowtech2 style cranks - I don't need rings or BB.

Opinion: Driving With Dad and the Boost Hub Standard
"When I bought my fat bike I didn't whine about the 100mm BB or the 170mm hub in back or the 135mm hub for the fork" - why not? You bitch and moan about everything else!

As above. Fits Fox DHX shocks (as it came off one) but no idea what else. Might trade for MTB cranks (68 / 73mm BB), decent 760+mm bar, decent 'retro' suspension fork. Maybe something else! Maybe even an old bike that you've forgotten about in your garage / storage space that needs some love!
