Ask Pinkbike: Brakes For a Big Guy, and Should I Drill My Frame?
+1 to this, also better biting knobs on the top of your tread will help a lot.

Hey Pinkbike, I'm selling my Cannondale Bad Habit because I'm needing to focus on other cycling disciplines besides mountain biking. The bike is a blast, excellent for technical trail riding and just overall fun. It has a full sram GX1 1x11 group, WTB Scraper wheels with 3" wide WTB Bridger tires,Shimano Deore brakes (while not blingin' still feel pretty awesome.) It uses Cannondales Lefty fork, the best fork I've ridden, that's compared to Rockshox Sid XX, Rockshox Pike, Fox 32. The shock is an mmid range Rockshox with lockout and rebound adjustments. Additionally I've upgrade to 800mm ENVE DH bars value of $180 and Thompson Stealth Dropper Post value of $500. The bike only has about 200 miles on it. The tires, chain, and brake pads all still have lots of life. The bike is awesome, just not what I need right now. I will consider shipping the bike if you pay for the freight. Otherwise cash only. Give me a call or PM with any other questions.

Sorry, the bike is actually a 2015 not a '16. Hey Pinkbike, I'm selling my TCX this summer because I'm making room to get a new mountain bike this summer. It's in really good shape and has been ridden as a commuter, and on the occasional road ride. It's got a full shimano 105 11 speed spec, with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, Giant branded DT swiss wheel set with a thru axle on the front. The bike is a ton of fun and is really versatile. With the bike I will include three sets of tires, some Gatorskins 700x25, x-king's 700x35 and super swan 700x35. Also I'll leave my pump, matching bottle cages, bell, and seat bag with spare tubes. The value of the additional tires, bottle cages, pump and seat bag would be $350 the bike brand new was $2875. The bike is giant's lightest aluminum frame with a carbon fork and seat post and the total weight is about 20lbs. This is a link to the full spec sheet. https://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-us/bikes/model/tcx.slr.1/18743/76163/ Text, call, or email me with any questions. I'll ship within country, or in person pick up.

Hey Pinkbike, I'm selling my 3 month old Surly Krampus because I'm moving and need the money and space, this is a pretty unique bike with 29+ tires on it which are 3" wide, its a really fun bike that is just super quirky but has solid trail bike geometry, I have upgraded it with the Thompson Elite Dropper post which is worth $525 and I set it up SS which costed $80 which makes this bike, if new $2300 so this is definitely my loss your gain. I also have the old seat post and SLX 1x10 drivetrain that I will include.

Hey Pinkbike I have my beautiful Reign 27.5 1 for sale, it's MSRP when I bought it in march 5 months ago was $5975 I'm selling mine for 4200 which is 1700 dollars off! The bike is in excellent shape and has less than 600 miles on it riding on XC style trails. The bike is super fun and rides up relatively well for being a 30lb bike but the thing just destroys on the downhills. So fun. The spec on this bike is awesome, the only reason I'm selling is because I'm moving and need the money and space. Here is a detailed spec Giant Rerign 27.5 1 Frame - All 6069 aluminum with the amazing maestro suspension, similar to VPP or a DW link. The bike will work for people 5'11- 6'4. Rockshox Monarch+ debonair - 3 position damper, really smooth, never been bottomed out. Rockshox Pike RCT3 w/Travel adjust - 3 position damper, low speed compression dampening, 160mm-130mm of travel, best fork ever... Rockshox reverb stealth seatpost - 125mm of travel with a right hand lever flipped upside down on the left side. Fiz;ik Gobi saddle - Looks cool, not for everybody though. Truvativ Howitzer Stem and Bars - 50mm stem 800mm bar, it takes some adjustment to get used to the width, but it does feel pretty awesome. Sram 1X 1x11 drivetrain - I've ridden XO1 drivetrain on a previous bike, I really can't tell the difference here. 32t chainring, 175mm cranks, î0-42t cassette. Sram Guide RS - Yes they're better than old Avid brakes, yes they have better modulation than shimano's. Win. DT Swiss Spline wheelset 142x12 out back 15mm up front, ballin enduro/all mountain rims, they're aluminum, pretty light and have good engagement. Maxxis Minion DHF and Highroller tire combo, 2.35s cornering gods. Text, call, email with any questions.
