Mavic's 2017 Quest XA Carbon Wheelset - First Look
When can we start talking about more spokes more better? I hear you can corner 2000% faster with a 48 spoke wheel. I'm working on a Boost, 48 spoke carbon wheelset with a 40mm wide rim. Send $3000 via PayPal, you won't regret it.

Selling a very, very nice Banshee Spitfire frame with an Avalanche tuned Fox Van RC. The Van RC really just provides a shell for all of the Avalanche intenals, and it's Craig's preferred Fox shock to tune - this has a new IFP, new internals, expanded nitrogen reservoir, and custom bottom out bumper. Also includes a titanium spring. The shock was completely rebuilt and revalved just 2 rides ago. The linkage bearings were just replaced this past winter, and I will include a whole set of extra bearings for the next rebuild. The frame also includes a Cane Creek 110 headset, the nicest they make and, in my opinion, on-par with Chris King. The bearings are perfect. I'm also throwing in a Thomson seatpost clamp. $50 covers shipping I am trying to sell this bike as a complete, but in interest of selling quicker, please let me know if you are interested in any of the parts from my other ad and we can negotiate pricing http://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/1975059/

Yeti SB5.5c - First Ride
At some point in their recent history, Yeti clearly had a company meeting where Cocalis decided their company strategy would revolve around 2 things: sponsoring a top notch EWS team, and making bikes that unapologetically cater only to dentists. Seriously though, how does a company with a history of making fairly reasonably priced mainstream bikes suddenly start almost exclusively producing $3000-3500 carbon bikes? I had loads of buddies who started riding on Yeti bikes because of their bang for buck (Think ASX, 575, ASR5...) an, but we've had to throw any sense of brand loyalty out the window...now none of us can even begin to consider one.
