To the Point - Kirk Pacenti on 27.5-inch Wheels
This is the most absurd series of comments. Why the hell is everyone so resistant to change? It's just like when full suspension rigs were just getting popular and everyone on their hardtails was calling them clunky pieces of crap with no future. The reality is that Pacenti spoke with a series of people that had been interested in 650b in the past and decided to try it out for himself. He didn't convince Cane Creek or White Brothers to produce a ton of 650b product, he got them to produce a few one offs that he could try out and let others take a look at. The handmade bicycle show is not a place where the latest and greatest typically shows up - it's where creative minds are given an opportunity to show off their latest creations. Pacenti was dabbling with something that was of personal interest, and it ended up catching on. Do I think it's stupid for companies like Giant to ditch their entire 26" lineup? Yeah, I do, because there are going to be people that dislike 650b and will therefore not buy a Giant. Nobody is forcing you to buy 650b - the market moves with consumer preference, and you vote with your wallet.

Brand new, never mounted, uncut Race Face SixC handlebar in white/raw carbon colorway. No retail packaging, but these bars have never even been mounted on a bike. Width is 730mm - please text for pictures.

Not much to say - I have a barely used Shimano Zee rear shifter for sale. Buyer pays shipping. Message me for pictures or if you have any questions, cheers.

Just how it sounds - a Thomson Elite seatpost that has seen VERY few miles. Cosmetically perfect with no scuffs or anything - it could go right back in the case at the shop and not look out of place.

Frame is in great shape - over $800 in suspension upgrades have been invested in the last year. New RC4 shock with Push Factory Tuning System including full compression revalve and needle bearing instead of DU bushing. Push link make the bike ride very well with a coil shock and changes it into an enduro machine - I have never ridden a frame with this degree of rear suspension quality. Includes Santa Cruz seatpost collar, Cane Creek Tapered headset, and stock link. For $1700, will include 2012 Rockshox Reverb For $2300, will include new 2013 Rockshox Lyrik RC2DH and TruVativ Stylo GXP cranks. I will not sell this frame without the rear shock - the shock is custom valved for this particular bike and the PUSH link. Frame has been heli-taped since it was purchased and is in exceptionally good condition. Only damage is a small scratch on the top tube from an old XT brake lever making contact - I have confirmed that it is only in the clear coat and have email documentation from Santa Cruz confirming that it is not a problem.
