Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
Electronic shifting is stupid. I'm sorry, but what's inefficient about a steel cable? I'm also not on the gearbox train - though some people have a love affair with complex engineering (after all, we are all riding mountain bikes, the epitome of over-engineering), the elegant simplicity of the modern drivetrain really is something to behold. To me, dropper posts are still a joke. How can making something go up and down be so unreliable? Fox appears to have made strides in the reliability department, as has 9point8, but weight and complexity remain an issue. I think there's opportunity for some cool innovation there.

Hi, Selling a non-Boost, 29" Rockshox Pike Solo Air. This came stock on an Evil Following, and is the 130mm travel option. It has seen a few months of riding and has a few very small scuffs in places, but has never been crashed, has significant cable rub, and looks great. I have recently refreshed the bath oil, cleaned the seals and re-soaked the foam rings. Currently has 1 additional token added to the Solo Air chamber over stock. Make an offer.

Selling a pair of Easton Heist 30 wheels. These wheels are very highly regarded as a very strong, fast wheel at a great value. Internal rim width is 30mm to provide amazing tire support at low pressures, and hubs are easily convertible. Front is a 15x100mm axle, rear is 12x142mm, and the rear hub is set up with an XD driver for SRAM's latest 11/12 speed systems. Wheels have about 50-60 miles on them and are in excellent condition. Hub bearings are smooth as new, and the hub mechanism is super clean. Includes quick release adapters, as well as spare spokes. Will ship anywhere in the US, $40 flat fee.

Best Ride of the Year - Opinion
It's interesting reading all of these crash stories and hearing how they do/do not change peoples' perspectives. For me, I had 2 pretty bad crashes in the last year, all involving sizeable jumps on my downhill bike, and decided that it wasn't worth it to me. It's a tough mindset to get over because I have a few buddies who are into sending the biggest things possible, and I feel almost ashamed for shying away from things that I otherwise would have been excited to hit before my accidents changed my perspective. I've managed to rein in my confidence a bit more again, but I don't think it will ever be quite the same. I've never had any major impacts to my head, but broken bones in the last couple of years have taught me that going for a sketchy, big ass sender in the woods isn't worth the ensuing time off the bike and potential for lifelong impacts to my mobility, etc.

Custom color Charge Spoon saddle. Synthetic leather cover cleans up very easily and feels great. Super high finish quality. The cover is black with tan/gum stitching and a white base with gum accents. The saddle came on a new bike and was removed immediately in favor of a trusty old saddle from my old bike. $5 shipping

I can't imagine it's the case, but would it fit on an Evil Following? That lower mount is quite tucked away, but...(fingers crossed)
