Up for grabs is a really rad bike, something that anyone who appreciates niche brands and hard to find gems will appreciate - the Sinister Shenanigan! Not only is this bike hand crafted by the likes of Frank the Welder... but it's got some nice custom bits beyond the typical Shenanigan (for how few were sold, even)- zerk fittings for greasing the main pivots are built into the frame, and apparently the headtube may be more slack than what's listed below (per PB user UNITEDFREERIDE, the original owner of the frame). For those of you who have been around long enough to know of FtW and Sinister, you know how good this deal is.

Frame: Sinister Shenanigan, horst link, 152mm travel via Rock Shock Monarch + (comes with spare sleeve/seal kit)
Grips - LizardSkin Moab (the old, superior, pattern)

Fork - SR Suntour Durolux RC2, 35mm stanchions, 160mm (170 & 180 adjustable via roll pin) of air sprung travel, high/low speed external compression adjust, low speed external rebound adjust, 20mm Q-loc thru axle (best QR 20 style out there, tbh)
Brakes - Hayes Prime Pro, white/gold, 160 mm rotors.
Seatpost - KS Supernatural Dropper, with Southpaw Remote (there's maybe 7mm sag, I won't lie), or Thompson Masterpiece + Sunline V-One Saddle
Seat Collar - Nukeproof Warhead
Seat - Kore I-Beam
Crank - Shimano Zee with 32 tooth Race Face Wide/Narrow Chainring
Pedals - Crank Brothers Candy (included)
Shifter - Shimano Saint, 10 speed (rear only)

Like new Kenda Excavator Pro 26"x 2.4" Stick-E Tire for taking her to the park.
Chris King 1-1/2" -> 1-1/8" lower race, if you've got a straight steerer fork you want to run.
Hayes Pro Bleed Kit
Grease Gun with zerk connector and grease
XT Chain cut for a 30T chain ring, lightly used.
Sunline Chain Retention System - Brand New.

This is a super fun bike, probably the most versatile rig I've ever owned. I've done some light DH on it (a small hill by my house which is open 2-3 times a year for lift access, Swain), but mostly typical NE trail riding (predominantly Hunter's Creek, some Ellicotville). If you want to take your trail riding descents to another level, while still being able to climb up to the top with relative ease (this isn't a cross country race bike up hill, but it won't kill you thanks to the decent seat tube angle, and solid lockout/gate switch on the Monarch, not to mention how good Horst Link suspension is in general), this is a great choice for you. It's currently my only bike, so it's been a quiver killer of sorts (I've sold a DH bike and a 5" travel trail bike in the time I've owned this, because I can fill those with this whip).

Honestly, I just want a new bike, and to be able to afford one, I've got to part ways with this one (crazy how expensive bikes have gotten!), along with several other bike frames/parts I've had kicking around for a while. Moving on with life, and I've got to consolidate the massive amount of bike stuff I own. Guys who are looking at this bike probably get it, I'm sure.

At any rate, the 850 is firm, plus shipping. I've priced it extremely fairly, so we can save ourselves the trouble of trying to haggle over it. This is a great bike for the money, just filter 850 as the max on PB and see what comes up. You'll find this bike is head and shoulders above the rest. Thanks for looking, folks!
$850 USD
