Interbike Cancelled for 2019
The on-hill demos at Northstar and exhibitor area there went really well - seemed to exceed expectations all around (whereas the show itself in Reno was a bit sluggish for sure). I guess it's too big a risk to take for Emerald if they're already losing money, but it seems cutting out the convention center and focusing on more demo would make some sense. Heck, it's a lot cheaper setting up a tent in a parking lot vs creating those elaborate booths. That alone would save exhibitors a lot of money.

Mavic 823s with Hadley Hubs

$275 USD
Solid wheelset: Mavic 823s with Hadley Hubs. Hayes rotors (203mm front and 180mm rear), Shimano 10 speed cassette, Michelin 2.6 front tire and Geax 2.5 rear tire. This is not a light/xc wheelset. But, it's pretty bomber and ideal for shuttles, bike parks, etc., especially with the current tire/rotor set-up. 100 x 20 front and 142 x 12 rear. Let me know if you have any questions.

Ibis Mojo HD with new suspension & 2 wheelsets

$2250 USD
(PRICE DROP) Tough decision, but I'm selling a really fun do-it-all / quiver-of-one bike. It's a 2013 Ibis Mojo HD that was stock with Easton Carbon wheels and Formula "the 1" brakes. That's a great starting point. I've since put on carbon X0 cranks, and the big upgrades are to the suspension. I put on a 180mm Fox 36 which slackens it out to 66.5 degrees and a Fox Float X in the rear. This took a great all-around bike and really added to its DH capabilities without much, if any compromise on climbing. The newer Fox 36 actually weighed a bit less than the stock Fox 34 160mm fork. You're not going to find many sub-30lb bikes with 180/160 travel. This is one of them. It's set up as a 2x10 with X7 up front and X9 in the rear. Additional parts: KS Lev dropper (serviced in the past year), Raceface Sixc carbon bars, Ergon grips, Chromag Lynx DT saddle, Maxxis DHF 2.5 and High Roller II 2.4 with good life left on both. I have a burly DH wheelset that I can throw in with a deal close to full asking. Mavic 823s with Hadley Hubs. Michelin 2.6 up front and Geax 2.5 in the rear. Rotors and a cassette on there too. So, if you do want to shuttle or go hit up a bike-park, you're all set. This is a really fun, nimble bike that can take big hits on the way down, but also get you to the top of any trail and is fun for all-day epics too. The bike has some scratches/scuff marks that are paint only - no cracks. Both the fork and shock are buttery smooth with no scratches. Never ridden in a bike park. It has been on the back of my truck and the downtube has some wear from that. The travel on the truck was almost entirely to/from trail-heads. I've shuttled with this bike less than 10 times. I'm in South Lake Tahoe, but I'm willing to drive up to 3 hours each way to make a sale (not for a look-over). Hit me up with any questions. Thanks! Anthony

Video: Off the Beaten Path - Extended Trailer
I'm a little late to the party, and Pat hit on some of this, but something I'd add is: You're totally right that some of the places we shot are definitely places you could ride a "regular" MTB (slick rock, granite, etc.). But, the extra traction of those big tires made certain lines doable that I know I wouldn't have felt comfortable doing on my Ibis for example. That extra traction didn't just come in handy on steep descents, it also meant we were able to ride up a lot of things that we'd have to push other bikes up. All that said, I fully get they're not for everyone. It's not going to be a one-bike quiver for all but very few people. I still love my Mojo HD... But, in addition to using the fat bikes on more variable terrain, I now find myself riding fat bikes more often that I thought I would even on singletrack just for fun. That's one thing we don't really touch on in the film - trails. We wanted to do as little singletrack as possible for the project. Though when things get loose here in Tahoe (by mid-summer usually), those tires actually help you ride faster on the descents. For example, I gotta brake before going in to sandy berms on the Ibis whereas I don't on the fat bike. And, even when conditions aren't loose, it's a really fun change - just a different ride. Thanks! ac

Forgot to mention the second song in the trailer is "The Rentals" track "It's Time to Come Home". Really glad to have gotten the chance to use that song in the trailer. So, thanks to The Rentals, Polyvinyl Records and Bank Robber Music for working with us to make that happen. And, thanks for checking this out. This project has been a labor of love and we really didn't know exactly where it'd take us early on. Along the way we got to meet some amazing people with a true passion for riding bikes.
