Norco Aurum HSP

$4500 USD
I am selling my 2019 race bike. I used the bike last year on 5 of the NW Cup race weekends and that is all the use it has gotten. I was not able to race this year due to scheduling conflicts. The bike was serviced by Ride Bicycles at the end of the year last year and as only been used once or twice this year. The bike has also been upgraded with the World Cup cartridge for the fork and a 500# spring. I weigh 185# and I am 5'8". Right now the bike is set up in Medium but an easy flip of the headset spacer and it will be a Large. The front wheel has a Huck Norris insert and a Cushcore in the rear wheel. This is a light but very effective set up. Tires are the very sticky compound and 90% in the front and 60% in the rear. The Norco Aurum HSP is one of the best DH bikes that I have ever used. It works well on dirt jumps or flow trails and holds its speed yet it will also smash through the chunder with ease as well. There is one blemish on the fork from when it rubbed my bike rack on one of the long drives out to the NW Cup races. It has no effect on the bike's performance and could easily be covered up but I'd like to be as transparent as possible.

Whyte G-160

$1900 USD
I am selling my Whyte G-160. This is the original long and low frame from the UK. I had to work pretty hard to find this bike in 2016 but now all bikes are using the same long and low geometry. The frame is new as of 2019 I had it replaced because of a crash. The handlebars are new Deity bars that are color matched. It has a hope 4 upgraded rear hub with color match. Dropper is a Reverb 150mm. I upgraded the brakes to Shimano XT this winter and I have just done a bleed. The pads look to have quite a bit of service life on them. The bike has a DVO Diamond fork with 170mm of travel. This is a really great fork. It is very easy to tune and is an upgrade from stock. There are some scratches on one of the stanchions but these are cosmetic. I scratched them on a rock in Ashland in 2019 and the fork has never leaked oil. I had the fork rebuilt last winter by Progression bike shop and it is still not leaking oil or in need of maintenance but will probably need a service this winter. The shock is in need of a service now but functions fine. I will throw in new tires and a Cushcore set up for the rear wheel that I have not installed. I also have a set of 175mm carbon XO cranks that were new with the bike but I replaced them with a set of 165mm GX cranks that are better for my height.

Trek Ticket Stub

$600 USD
I am selling my Trek Ticket Stub 2012. I have mostly used this bike on pump tracks and flow trails. I like to jump but I usually use my trail bike. Overall this bike is in good condition. There are some scratches on the fork and handlebar and a few chips in the paint. The mechanical disk brakes are functional but they never worked very well. I just put new grips on the bike and overall it feels pretty good.

Mountain Bike Access Issues Flaring Up in San Diego County
It would have been cool if the story touched on the losses caused by ever expanding Wilderness in California and how this ties into so many problems in the western US.

Chromag Announces Doctahawk, a Super Aggressive 180mm, 29er Hardtail
This is my next bike. I'm currently running a Whyte 905 with a DVO diamond set at 170mm. It feels great. This looks like the next step in the evolution.

I run a 170mm DVO diamond on my Whyte 905. I started it at 150 and 170 feels much better.

Kona Announces All New 2019 Kona Big Honzo
I was super excited when I saw that Kona was releasing a new Honzo. Then I looked at the geometry chart. I need to run an XL to get over 1200mm wheelbase. In fact the XL is the same wheelbase as my size medium Whyte G-160 or even Whyte 905. Why is it soooo hard to find a hardtail with forward geometry? It would be great if a company like Kona would modernize their geometry and make and aggressive forward geo 29er affordable. I'd really appreciate it.
