Carbon Wheels That Cost Less - Taipei Cycle Show
@ratedgg13: I don't hit road gaps on my fat bike, but I ride pretty hard. Both rims cracked straight lining through steep rock/root section of trail! I've never ridden DT rims maybe I'll give them a try

Carbon Wheels That Cost Less - Taipei Cycle Show
I'd love to read an expanded explanation for carbon wheels being a "negligible return on your investment depending on what you've picked up and how you're using them." I can venture some guesses as to why carbon is a money pit (I ride hard and have cracked two carbon rims in the past year, a roval traverse fattie 30mm and a whiskey carbon 65mm), but I enjoy hearing other reasons. Carbon wheels sure feel good but I might need to switch to MK3 flows...$100 fix vs $400

Command IRCC dropper post 125mm Specialized TRADE

$1 USD
Anybody have a 150mm dropper post 30.9mm diameter that they want to trade for my 125mm Specialized Command IRCC? Or you can buy this Command IRCC 125mm and provide me some money to take to my LBS to buy a 150mm dropper. I am 6'4'' so 125mm isn't long enough. Thanks, Will

Winter Woolly - Lift Access Fat Bike Event at Highland
Sounds awesome! 7 Springs should just reopen their bike park considering the only snow we have is machine blown on the main groomers.. : /

Gravity Logic Built, US East Coast Bike Parks
When the most challenging trails can be ridden on a warm up run, you know something is wrong. 7 Springs has so much potential...if they paid for gravity logic to cut two trails on north face's 750ft vert and had more than three raw dh trails, the place could take off. However, years go by and no new trails get built. But hey, owner Bob Nutting's net worth is only 1.1 billion, so there is clearly a shortage of cash! Definitely not a resort for the riders.

Specialized Demo 8 I Alloy - Review
My cable frays and needs to be replaced every 4 or 5 rides, despite proper set up. Good to know that a 10spd cassette does the trick for 2017 prep.

Trek Superfly Elite HT 29 Carbon Full XT

$1600 USD
I am selling this bike for my dad, he is the original owner. He rode it a lot for the first few years, but has only ridden it once a month since because he spends all of his time on his fatbike and full suspension bike. Just about everything has been upgraded since the original purchase. Recent upgrades include brand new Shimano XT 1x11 drivetrain and brand new front rim (Stans ZTR arch mk3) and front tire (Specialized sworks Renegade 29 x 1.95), all have under 100 miles. Chris King hubs. Full XT brakeset. Thompson elite carbon seatpost. Easton monkeylite carbon hadlebars. The original frame got cracked 3 years ago so my dad replaced it with Trek's new model Carbon frame. In the past few years my dad used this Superfly mostly for family/friend rails to trails rides. This bike is incredibly fun to ride. I have been lucky enought to take it for a few rides and it accelerates unlike any other bike I have ridden. This model is raced by some of the fastest xc riders for a reason, and it somehow makes climbing fun. Just a heads up, the water bottle cage bolts are a little loose, can be tightened by a bike shop. Still fully functional holding water bottles. Complete specs listed below. Weight: under 24lbs Thanks for reading and feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Local pickup in Pittsburgh area, otherwise buyer pays shipping. Asking $1,600 or best offer.
