I guess Christopher Walken doesn't care if his buddy will hold his water bottle.

SRAM X1 GXP 175 w/ 32 Eagle Boost XO weight

$80 USD
X0 weight at a fraction of the cost! I just “upgraded” to X01 cranks because — thanks to the interwebs — I thought these cranks were 800 grams. Just took them off and weighed them at only 627 grams (including ring), which is only 38 grams more than XO1 carbon cranks. I should have measured before I bought! These X1 cranks are stiff, strong, and, apparently, really light. Everything on these cranks is in excellent condition. The crank arms look great and only have a bit of shoe rub on the non-drive side. The Eagle X-Sync 32t chainring is in outstanding shape with minimal wear. I’m also including a direct mount 2x spider with brand new, unridden 34-22t chainrings, so you have that option. 2016 SRAM X1 GXP (works with GXP external and PF92/BB92 bottom brackets) 175mm arms 168 Q Factor Eagle 32t Boost chainring SRAM 2x spider with 34-22t chainrings Let me know if you have any questions. -David

Pinkbike Awards: Value Mountain Bike of the Year Winner
Short chainstays, big tires, and 170mm of travel -- the rear wheel needs somewhere to move.

That ENVE 50” front rim would cost like $15K all by itself.

@friendlyfoe: It's called the RedBull FoxHunt. It's absolute carnage and amazing. Wouldn't mind a whole season of that.

@bman33: I hear your point, and I think we have the same values, we just prioritize them differently. In these murky gray matters, we’re often left to weigh not what is most good but what is least harmful. I see the downsides to limiting things in the name of fairness. However, for me, in the case of keeping MJ illegal, the benefit to individuals and communities is worth the trade-off of giving up recreational use. I appreciated your reasoned and balanced response. It’s refreshing when people calmly express their opinion without vilifying others. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

@NYShred: I’m certain I know what cannabis is and how it affects people, but perhaps I’ve seen more the negative impact it has had on people and communities (not simply because of illegality or enforcement), so my take on it is slanted negative. Perhaps you have been spared from seeing that, so your take is slanted positive. I fully understand that people enjoy weed and that it has medicinal attributes, so I understand the up-side. But l also understand the down-side, which seems to be something you’re not willing to acknowledge. End of the day, we have different takes on the matter, which is fine. My main objection to your reply was the all-too-common approach of dismissing others as uninformed and/or threatening just because they have a different opinion.

@NYShred: Seriously, I frighten you? Broadly stating someone is ignorant but not providing specifics or clarification is pointless. If you have some facts or reasoning to back up your opinion, I’d be interested to hear — I have an open mind. What’s actually a little scary to me is when a person throws around a charged word, such as “ignorant” without any explanation, and writes off a whole group of people with a different opinion as threatening/evil/worthy of contempt. That mindset does frighten me.

@bman33: Respectfully, I disagree. I see the cop-out as hiding behind the fact that life is unfair in order to justify your desire to get high, knowing full well that it does more harm to people with fewer resources. By all means, get high if you want, but you don’t get to pretend (settle your conscience?) that drugs don’t harm to other people, especially those with less opportunity.
