Please read the full ad before contacting me with questions. (I know it's long, sorry.) Thanks! (P.S. Buyer pays all shipping, packing, and PayPal costs) Hey Pinkbike, I have a 100% custom XS mountain bike for sale. Read the full following description for the build/model explanation. This bike began its life as a 2015 Kona Lana'i that I bought to build for my now ex-GF. The only stock part of the bike (original bike shown in last photo) is the frame and headset. Every part was upgraded for maximum performance and custom tailored to suit the riding style of someone who would fit this frame. This bike is NOT female specific, it is a unisex XS frame for people around 4'10" to 5'4" tall. The only reason this bike has "Spot" decals on it is because I ride as a brand ambassador for them and thought it would be a cool touch because the bike was supposed to stay in the "family" so to speak. I thought about getting some Kona stickers off of eBay to properly label it, but honestly at this point I just want to sell it. This build took me about 3.5 months to complete, and the frame was taken down to bare metal and professionally powder coated candy purple (looks amazing in the sunlight, harder to see the proper color in the photos). The bike is absolutely mint, no scratches anywhere, it literally looks new. There is one minor scuff on a stanchion, but it's higher up and literally doesn't affect anything. The wheels spin true and it was just tuned. This bike is perfect for smaller kids, female riders, or anyone who falls in the size range. I showed the bike to some buddies after I got it back from powder coat and they were drooling over how good the purple looked. It hasn't been ridden since I built it, I gave it to her and we broke up shortly after and she gave it back before it was ever ridden. Here's the reasoning behind each part of the build. The fork is the biggest deal for smaller bikes- because riders are always lighter and often most bikes this size you can find are quite cheap, they come with coil forks that light riders can't compress meaning they're essentially riding a rigid bike. Even if it does compress under a lighter rider, the dampening is poor and the fork doesn't hold up long. I put on a Fox Float 32 because it is an air fork with a proven damper- the pressure can just be dropped based on weight until the rider is using their travel effectively. I totally rebuilt the fork when I put this bike together, so it has 0 miles, and fresh oil and new seals. I even custom ordered the lowers decals to match the purple and silver colorway. The drivetrain is an extended range 1x10 (with an 11-42 cassette and a 30t NW chainring) which gives ease of shifting and an amazing range, perfect for the size of a rider fit to this bike. The wheels are tubeless ready which can reduce both flats and rolling weight. (The bike has tubes at this time) The Maxxis tire combo ensures great grip for any rider and low rolling resistance. The short stem and wide bars give amazing control, confidence, and stability to the rider compared to many bikes this size with a long stem and narrow bars. The mechanical disc brakes have great power and were chosen for their ease of use and low maintenance compared to hydraulic disc brakes. Even the carbon seatpost was chosen because it helps take the harsh jarring of aluminum seatposts away. The wheels are 26", which some argue is outdated, but if you're short enough to need a bike this small, then 27.5" or 29" wheels just prove too cumbersome in handling issues and weight to be practical (which is why only the medium through XL sizes in this model come with 27.5" wheels) When I got the bike (pictured stock in the last photo) it weighed 31.04lbs, and as pictured it only weighs 26.74lbs. For someone small enough for this bike, that weight loss is a BIG deal. Any extra weight affects handling and especially pedaling performance. Also as a side note, if you see the price and wonder how a bike that cost $529 new is suddenly worth $775, think about how every part has been upgraded so significantly, along with the custom paintwork and details that went into this thing. I guarantee you'll never find another bike in this size, of this caliber, and with this much attention to detail for a price anywhere near as good. That is, if you can even find one at all. (Trust me, I looked for a long time and couldn't find anything.) Here's a full parts breakdown: Frame: Kona Lana'i (Professionally powder coated candy purple) Fork: Fox Float 32 (New seals, oil, decals) Wheels: Bontrager Duster (Perfect shape, smooth bearings, spin true, tubeless ready) Brakes: Shimano Deore Levers on Tektro Calipers (New cables and housing) Rotors: Shimano RT-66 (180mm front, 160mm rear) Crankset: Race Face Ride Chainring: Race Face NW 30t Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore Shadow Plus (w/ clutch and OneUp RAD cage upgrade) Shifter: Shimano Deore (New cable and housing) Chain: SRAM PC-1051 Cassette: Shimano XT (w/ 42t OneUp extender cog) Front Tire: Maxxis High Roller II 26x2.4 (Like new) Rear Tire: Maxxis Ardent 26x2.25 (Great shape) Bars: SMAC Innovations (720mm wide) Stem: Intense (50mm) Grips: Ergon GA2 Seat Post: Carbon Fiber (For good comfort and compliance. Also, light weight and looks) Saddle: WTB Speed She (Brand new, can be swapped for a unisex saddle if preferred) If I've left anything out, let me know and I'll get that info to you. The price is firm given the time and money I've invested in building this thing. (Yes, I actually took it from that stock white and orange Kona to what you see in the pics.) I haven't even valued any of the custom work involved in building this thing. Just call, text, or PM me at the number under the "contact" tab above if interested or with any questions. If the ad is up, the bike is still for sale. Serious questions or buyers only please. Let me know if I can help with anything. Thanks for looking!

Hey PB, I have an awesome brand new, never ridden Fox Float DPS Evol rear shock. It came on a bike I bought but I already had a build lined up, so I don't need an extra! No morning hardware included- it is specific to your frame. Shock size is 200x57 of 7.875x2.25. Price is firm, and buyer pays the $15 shipping and PayPal fees (so that means $265 total shipped). Thanks for looking!

Bike Yoke Shifty: SRAM Derailleur Upgrade - Review
Totally agree guys, I meant no harm by it. I'm OCD about certain things, mainly related to my bikes and truck (think checking the oil and then pressing down on the dipstick 10 times to confirm there's absolutely no chance it's the slightest bit uninserted.)

Bike Yoke Shifty: SRAM Derailleur Upgrade - Review
My OCD started screaming seeing it in the derailleur/cassette photo- that thing looks orange and doesn't match!

Price is firm- this is by far the cheapest Rollik on Pinkbike- I just want to pass on a good deal! Hey Pinkbike, I have an unbelievable 2017 Spot Rollik 557 for sale! It’s a size Large. This thing is made by Spot Brand, based out of Golden, CO and is made with only the best TeXtreme carbon fiber (seen on other rigs like $10k Felt bikes) that provides superior strength to weight. If you haven’t heard about Spot, now you have! This was their first full suspension bike and first carbon bike, and they did it all on a one off suspension design! If you won’t take my word for it, take a look at some reviews that I’ll include towards the end of the ad. This bike is unbelievable, especially with how I built it up! (A 160mm fork on a 140mm travel rear end- beautiful balance on Front Range trails all the way to resort downhill laps.) My ONLY reason for selling it is to get the 29er version of it with just a bit less travel; it was always my end game to go back to a 29er, but the suspension design was SO good that I had to go 650B just because of the ride quality and handling. As for the condition, this bike is in amazing shape! The frame doesn’t really have a scratch on it, thanks to the fact it had a clear bra on it most of its life. Some of it has been removed (because I baby the bike and it wasn’t getting used- it looked better without it), but I still have it on the bottom of the downtube and the inside of the rear triangle (where stuff will get touched regardless of where/how you ride). The wheels are in great shape, just a small dent/flat spot in the rear wheel that doesn’t affect anything. The fork and shock stanchions are clean, there is only a little scuffing on the insides of the fork lowers from a tiny front fender being mounted. (Putting one on again would cover it completely) Other than that, there really isn’t anything I can think of noting. This bike is in that great of shape that those two minor things are seriously all that I can nit pick! This bike has been maintained unbelievably well and is tight- no play or work needed at all! Here’s a detailed parts spec with any other information I can think of including: Fork: Rockshox Pike RCT3 (160mm, custom lowers decals, rebuilt at end of last season) Rear Shock: Fox Factory Float DPS Evol (custom decal, rebuilt 2 rides ago) Wheelset: Stans Flow EX 27.5 (Rear wheel is hand built on Hope Pro4 hub- 44pt engagement) Front Tire: Maxxis Minion DHF 3C MaxxTerra EXO TR (Tubeless, nearly new) Rear Tire: Maxxis High Roller II (Tubeless, nearly new) Brakes: Shimano XT (New pads front and rear in last 6 rides, great bleed!) Rotors: Shimano RT-86 Ice Tech (180mm front and rear) Crankset: SRAM GX (Entire drivetrain is nearly new, only about 300 miles on the entire setup!) Rear Derailleur: SRAM GX (Just tuned) Shifter: SRAM GX (New shifter cable) Cassette: SRAM GX Chain: SRAM GX Seat Post: Rockshox Reverb Stealth (125mm, works awesome- has been super reliable) Saddle: WTB Volt Handlebar: Race Face Turbine (35mm clamp, 760mm width, super comfortable) Stem: Spot Brand (35mm clamp, 70mm long) Grips: Ergon GA2 (New) Headset: Cane Creek Forty (New lower bearing and just regreased) The promised reviews on the bike: https://www.bikemag.com/gear/mountain-bikes/review-spot-rollik-557/ http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/spot-rollik-557/2 Mountain Bike Action also wrote a glowing review that they published in their magazine: The Rollik is a trailbike like none other and loves climbing up the trails as much as it loves darting back down... For a trailbike, this thing can seriously climb. The Rollik is a mountain goat... The Rollik was designed with out-of-the-box thinking, and that is what makes it so fun to ride. This bike is an absolute trail killer.” If I've left anything out, let me know and I'll get that info to you. The price is firm and very fair, this is a great build for the money and the frame alone cost $3000 new! Call, text, or PM me if interested or with any questions. If the ad is up, the bike is still for sale. Serious questions or buyers only please. Buyer is responsible for ALL shipping, PayPal, and boxing fees! Let me know if I can help with anything. Thanks for looking!

Hey Pinkbike, I have a brand new Race Face Aeffect 35 bar and stem combo for sale. The combo also includes a set of ODI Vans grips. Everything is brand new, unused.

This is a great way to update that outdated/worn out cockpit to all the new tech! Altogether it would cost $105 new, I’ll let it go for $75 firm.

Please Note: Price is FIRM. I don't know what it is about PB users, but I don't know how "firm" turns into a half-off low ball offer. Please respect the price, thanks! Hey Pinkbike, I have a brand new SRAM GX Eagle 12 speed drivetrain for sale. This comes with everything you need: cranks, rear derailleur, cassette, shifter, chain, and a GXP BB! It’s a complete brand new 1x12 drivetrain for only $460! Please, no asking for specific parts, I want to sell this as a whole. It came on a bike I just bought but I already had a 1x12 drivetrain waiting for it, and I don’t need two! Figured I’d just sell the new one. Call, text, or PM me if interested or with any questions. Buyer is responsible for shipping and PayPal fees. Thanks for looking!
