Video: Invading Silver Star Resort with Tyler McCaul
When I went to Silverstar once and I'm pretty sure I just handed over a pass that I'd been given. Does one now have to dress up like a Viking, slaughter then local men and children, and do naughty things to the ladies in order to get on the lift?

As above, looking for a fairly decent fork with an untapered 1 1/8th steerer, axle to crown somewhere around 500mm with 20mm dropouts. Seems these are getting a bit rare. Thinking OG Pike but but could be something more unusual too. If you have something lying in the back of your garage feel free to let me know :) It could be old but it would have to be in decent condition and not hucked off roofs as I intend to ride on this fork!

Short version - modern All Mountain / Enduro bike. Long top tube. Slackish head angle (around 66.5 with the external cup headset). 15mm fork / 12x142 bolt thru rear end. Fork and shock lock out - rear shock is much more adjustable than a Fox one and is really plush. Remote dropper post. Reasonable weight. Buy this, or buy a Norco tank from 2009 ;) Now comes with free tires - almost new Maxxis High Roller II 2.4 EXO and an older Specialized Butcher 2.3 but still plenty of life in it. The bike comes with an Ardent up front and Specialized The Captain in the rear (both fast rolling summer tires) Long version: 19" / 48cm Ghost AMR+ frame but up as a complete bike by me (bike mechanic) but it's a bit too similar to my other mountain bike so have decided to sell or trade this for something with a bit more travel. The frame is around 2 years old. The following parts are either brand new or around three rides old: Cassette Chain (SRAM 971) Crankset (I have penguin feet so have already worn the decals off the crank arms...) Rear rim (Mavic EN521) All spokes and nipples Fork lowers Brake pads and rotors Headset (cartridge bearing) Front derailleur (SLX) Bike has a Rockshox Sektor RL fork (just serviced), X-Fusion 02 RCX rear shock, X Fusion Hilo dropper seatpost with remote (just rebuilt), Shimano Deore brakes with almost new sintered pads, 2x9 sp drivetrain with mid level Shimano components (SLX rear derailleur and older LX shifters). The bike has 150mm of suspension front and rear and both can be adjusted and locked out. The geometry is fairly slack and well suited to riding on the North Shore and Squamish. I built the wheels around 3 rides ago. Hope Pro 2 142 x 12 rear hub and Shimano SLX 15mm front hub. Red and silver anodized nipples. Please note that the rear triangle of the bike has been replaced so is a different colour to the front. It's black but I've covered it with black tape to hide the small green highlights but it's just electrical tape so can come off easily. I replaced the main pivot bearings when I replaced the rear triangle. I think the price reflects this modification though. $1200 OBO but I'd be interested in a trade for a 'bigger' bike, maybe even a DH bike. It could be something older but interesting in some way.
