I love building, shooting/filming, and almost anything on two wheels, but shuttling/lifts are the best!

Macklemore would approve of that name but not that price...

From Specialized: "If you go hard and have a playful style, you're going to love the nimble ride of our Stumpjumper . . . with an X1 setup, plus a 150mm Pike RC fork that complements a snappy, trail-eating geometry." Specialized completely redid the Stumpjumper in 2016 to make it the ultimate trail bike. If you approach riding like I do, wanting to have the most fun on the downhill and suffering the least on the uphill, this bike strikes the perfect balance. It's fast, sharp, capable, and playful going up and down all kinds of terrain. Key Specs: SRAM X1 drivetrain Shimano SLX brakes RockShox Pike RC fork Fox Float Factory CTD shock w/ AUTOSAG Specialized wheels, tires, dropper post Bike will be sold stock except: Deity Dirty30 handlebars - 760mm length, 25mm, 9 degree bend x 5 degree upsweep, 31.8mm clamping diameter Choice of stems: 50mm Deity Cavity (extra $), 70mm Specialized, 70mm Kona, 90mm Giant. Sensus Disisdaboss grips Set up tubeless Pedals and bottle cage not included Bike has some minor cosmetic damage (pictured). There are a couple loose spokes on the rear wheel. I recently discovered that I bent the seat rail. I would be happy to include one of the random old saddles I have laying around but I would expect the buyer to want something newer and more in line with the build of the rest of the bike. Thank you for looking! - Liam

Deity: New Digs in Idaho
By far my favorite bike brand in this crazy industry. Since buying my first pair of Deity bars 5 years ago nothing else has felt quite right. Thank you for continually progressing our sport, bleeding style, and staying true to your rock solid values. Can't wait for the giddiness of throwing some new Deity on my next build.

MUST WATCH: Brandon Semenuk - ''Vice Versa'' - Video
Disclaimer said it was a closed course. If Subaru handed me a brand new car on a road all to myself with instructions to floor it I would happily oblige.

This bike has just been sitting for almost four months. The low price reflects my desire for it to find a new home. I bought this bike new in February 2013 and barely rode it my freshman year of college (last year) so it has less than two years worth of riding on it. The Slash is Trek's longest travel bike below a full on DH bike so it's an absolute blast on descents and will still get you uphill without complaining. I have raced everything from XC to Super D to Sea Otter DH on this bike and it makes a great burly all arounder. The bike is in great shape, brakes work super well (although I will still include brand new pads), and it has brand new front derailleur cable and housing. The only issues are that there a few cosmetic imperfections in the frame (mostly from shuttling) and the bottom bracket makes some noise. I have kept the bike mostly stock except for the following upgrades: Spank Spike pedals e*thirteen TRS+ Dual (chain) Guide Continental Trail King 2.4 tires SRAM X9 Type 2 long cage rear derailleur Brand new Specialized 70mm stem AND used Easton E70 85mm stem WTB Dual Duty rear wheel Here's what Trek has to say: http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/2012/archive/trek/slash_7/#/us/en/archive-model/details?url=us/en/bikes/2012/archive/trek/slash_7

Video: Slowmo Bro Learns How to Share the Trail
This is super interesting. I grew up in Marin and raced in the NorCal league of NICA for 3 years. Of course everyone on the trails is there to have fun and courtesy is king, but the concept of bikes and horses legally sharing singletrack in the Bay Area is very sparse. I've experienced everyone from horse riders enthusiastically following me down trails to hikers who won't let me pass and threaten to call the cops on me for trying to ride legal trails. I'm really not surprised NICA would portray getting your tires off the ground as a douche move, they make all races sign a contract saying they will NEVER do this. I for one find getting creative while riding downhill with my friends far more fun than spinning up a hill and being overly polite to a bunch of strangers. NICA does many of great things, but I often worry that their mission is too firmly rooted in amassing new riders at the expense of the quality of experience of the many riders that do participate. Finally, congratulations to Kate for continuing to slay races after high school for Stanford.
