The frame was new as of winter 2016. It was ridden for the 2016 season, and then stored since then because my career doesn't allow much time to ride. The fork was purchased in summer 2017 and just came back from being overhauled at the Fox factory, with new seals, lower legs, bushings, oil, hardware and decals. The rear shock is a 2017 model, and has only been ridden one full season. It’s a huge upgrade from the original shock. The suspension on this bike is so buttery smooth and plush, and yet it pedals extremely efficiently. All bearings are running smoothly. Front hub bearings were serviced yesterday. The bike was upgraded to an 11 speed drivetrain in summer 2016, so the shifter, rear derailleur, cassette, chain and chainring are relatively new. The shifting is crisp and precise. The brakes are strong, and there's plenty of life left in the pads. All of the Chris King components (hubs, headset, bottom bracket) are user serviceable and will last a long, long time. The front tire has about 80% tread left, and the rear tire has 99%. As far as wear and tear goes, there a subtle blemish here and there, mostly from being loaded onto an overcrowded bike rack. It’s what you’d expect to see on a bike that’s been ridden for a season. There was protective tape covering a lot of the frame, so overall, it’s in great condition. There are scratches on the crank arms, and some scratches a couple of dings in the rear rim. The rims are still straight and true, with no big dents or anything like that. The fork has a teeny tiny blemish in on the right stantion tube. It has been inspected at the Fox factory and deemed a non-issue, purely cosmetic. It’s hard to see in the photos because it’s so small. It’s the type of thing that I’d want to know about before purchasing the bike. No surprises here. As you can see from the photos, this bike has been well maintained and is super clean.

Rockshox Pike RCT3 160mm travel (reduce-able to 150mm with included Rockshox 150mm air shaft) Axle spacing: 100mm x 15mm Wheel size: 27.5" Steer tube cut at 7 3/4 inches, 197mm (as seen in photo) Bonus items: 150 mm air shaft, original owners manual, decal Fork has 3 seasons of riding on it. It was overhauled 2 times: once when changing travel from 150 to 160mm, also given new seals, O-rings and oil. A season later it was again given new seals, O-rings and fresh oil. It currently needs another full overhaul, likely needs new seals, O-rings and rebuild of damper cartridge. Fork sometimes sounds creaky. The fork has some scratches in the paint on the lowers, paint wear on the crown from cable housing rub, and a few teeny tiny blemishes on the left stantion tube. The blemishes on the tube have been evaluated at my local bike shop and are cosmetic only, and haven't caused any issues. Overall, this fork needs a bit of love, but has plenty of life left in it.
