Up for sale is a used Crank Brothers-branded Project 321 hub, in excellent shape. If you don't know P321, you should know that they're made in the USA and use a magnetic pawl technology that is so good that Stan's has licensed it for their new hubs. The only difference between this and a standard P321 hub is the Crank Bro's branding, which is nicely subtle. Specs: 144 points of engagement (POE) Axle: 148x12mm (boost) Disc mount: 6-bolt 32h (J-bend) HG freehub body. (Capable of being swapped for MS or XD). Condition: Has been built up once. Bearings are smooth. Pawls and freehub body seal work perfectly. Axle and endcaps are brand new ($75 + shipping on its own). Freehub body has one small chip in the spline from dropping a tool on it, but it doesn't affect cassette mounting or hub function in any way. (See photos.) A P321 hub in this configuration goes for $415 plus tax. Asking $180 OBO. Full asking price means I'll pay shipping and PP fees.

Had this on my Ibis Hakka (custom build) for a few months before I decided I wanted something with rear rack mounts and swapped it for a different gravel frame, which doesn't have a T47 bottom bracket, so this is just sitting around now. This is for a T47 frame, outboard style, for 30mm spindle cranks (Race Face, Easton, White Industries, some others), with ABEC-3 bearings. Includes middle sleeve and both silicone dust seals. Bearings feel new, as bike was minimally ridden. Threads are perfect. Full info here: https://wheelsmfg.com/bottom-brackets/t47/t47-outboard-abec-3-bb-for-30mm-cranks-black.html Paid $120.

Round Up: 19 Bike Industry Jobs Available Right Now
@Sscottt: being a warranty associate, or at least a good one, requires quite a lot of technical knowledge. Any mechanic who has submitted a lot of warranties can attest to that. $19 per hour just means Yeti doesn't give a f*** about you

I got these Giro Havoc mountain bike pants for fall/winter riding, but they're a little too baggy for me, so I'm selling them. Size 30. Lightly used. No tears, holes, or stains. Paid $170 plus tax. Asking $50. Full description: "The Havoc™ Pant is built from the same quiet 4-way stretch, DWR coated Durablend fabric as our acclaimed Havoc Short, for ultimate comfort whether you're cruising high alpine singletrack, dropping into cool canyons, or charging down rugged descents. Comfort with real durability is key, so we've added perforated ventilation in key areas, giving you plenty of adjustment with exterior waist tabs, and utilized a gusseted inseam to make sure these go more than a season. The inseam length and leg opening are dialed for seamless compatibility with pads, and the fit is tailored for a casual feel that's not too baggy. Once you try them, you might wonder why you suffered so long without 'em." https://www.giro.com/p/mens-havoc-mountain-bike-pant/350250001200000013.html

Continuing to clear out the parts bin... Shimano Ultegra ST-6800 left STI shifter for 2x11 drivetrains. Mechanical shifting, mechanical braking, i.e., not hydraulic, not Di2. For compatibility questions, Google "Shimano compatibility grid." Works perfectly. Cosmetically 7/10, with some small scratches. $70 OBO.

Excellent condition PNW Rainier IR V2, 150mm travel, 31.6mm diameter. To prepare it for sale I installed a new seal head and DU bushing, cleaned everything, and rebuilt it with new grease. (I service these posts professionally at a PNW dealer.) It works perfectly. There are some light signs of wear on the lower part, some of which is below the minimum insertion line (i.e., not visible when installed) -- see the photos. The stanchion is flawless. As the IR in the name implies, this is internally routed. Includes a cable bushing.

Installed for one month in my Pike thinking I would need it to tweak the amount of ramp for my ride style, but decided I didn't need it. Was worth the experiment though. Like-new condition. The is the RS 35mm Ramp Control Model D ("long-body"): fits 2015 and newer Pike forks with "Boost" 15x110 axle spacing, all 2017 and newer Pike forks (regardless of axle spacing). Not compatible with Dual Position Air forks. Recommended for 120 and 130mm 29”/27.5+ and 120mm 27.5” and 26” forks. I paid $149.99 + tax = $163. Jenson has this part for $139.95. Please read the paragraph above this one about fork compatibility.

I upgraded to the Enduro bearing press kit so my old one has to go. This kit is excellent for hubs and some suspension pivots. Kit includes: -Two aluminum handles from Bearing Pro Tools; solid and fits nicely in the hand -Threaded rod from Bearing Pro Tools -7 pairs of Wheels Manufacturing bearing drifts (14 drifts total) in the following common sizes: 15x26 17x28 6902 6903 6802 6803 6804 Some of the drifts have some visible wear but everything is 100% functional. These drifts sell for $9.50 each at Wheels Mfg and the handles for $25, so with tax this would cost you around $200 if you were to buy it all new. I'm looking to get $90 OBO. Will ship at your expense.
