(Update, getting it cleaned a tune up today!) I'm selling my, roughly 9 month old bike to make way for something different. This bike is awesome, I just don't have the time to ride the mountain bike recently. The bike probably has about 300-500 miles on it. I upgraded it with a dropper seatpost (Crux I KS) Thomson stem and bars, (70mm stem, 800mm bars) Ergon grips and saddle. The upgrades alone are worth about $550 and the bike New was $2550. It has no known issues to me. It has an excellent build. Frame - Giant XTC 29 Advanced Carbon frame. (Good trail bike geometry, but still fast. Full Carbon frame, 29 or 27.5 + tires, sliding dropouts, so Single speed is possible, Boost spacing, Bash guard mount around BB, Rubberized protective down tube guard and chain-stay guard. ) Fork - Fox Stepcast Float 32 (Midrange 100mm travel Fox fork, Air adjust, dampen control, rebound adjustment) Wheels - Giant XC2 - (Aluminum 32 spoke sealed bearing tubeless wheel-set, solid stock wheel-set, boost spacing) Brakes - SLX - (Great stopping power, ergonomic levers, tool free reach adjustment) Drivetrain - SLX 11speed ( 1x11 drivetrain, full SLX, 30t chainring, 11-42t SLX Cassette, SLX 175mm cranks, SLX Clutch Derailleur, SLX Shifter) BB and Headset - (FSA , Headset is 1 1/8" tapered to 1 1/2", PF92 Bottom bracket) Seatpost - KS Cruxi 100mm (Internal routed, cable actuated 100mm, seaetpost, value of about $265 that I upgraded, it works great) Handlebars and Stem - Thomson! (American made aluminum at its finest, Thomson 70mm stem worth $100 and 800m Thomson bars $110, Really comfortable cockpit set up, much better handling than the stock 90mm stem and 750mm bars) Small Things - Ergon Grips and saddle, bell (Upgraded these things, Saddle is about $65 and grips are around $25 the bell is $5, so about $100 in accessories there) Cash only.

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.
