Canyon Sender - Review
"It's incredibly hard to pick faults with the Sender." - The rear shock that comes standard doesn't work well with the bike. - The angled headset came loose and couldn't be fixed without potentailly voiding the warranty. - The hub spacing is 157mm wide, with far too small a hub/spoke bracing angle. - Difficult to attach on air pump - Rear end has more flex than usual. No I don't think a rear end should be flexy, it's the number one complaint Giant has had for years... - Suspension stiffens under pedaling load, making it potentially difficult to control when in rough situations - yes some people do pedal DH bikes. And if the YT comes with a selection of vastly more valuable parts for the same price, than yes it is better value. The argument about replacment part costs is irrelevant, that's rather an argument of practicality and necessity.

Boxxer World Cup (Team upgrade)

$1500 zl
Near new 2016 Boxxer World Cup i.e. Team with Solo Air upgrade (from new) for sale, only a single day of use. Had fresh oil put in during rebuild so no dry issues. Diffusion black lowers. Long story short, built up the bike and then broke my arm. I've only ridden them once, but as I gave my 2016 frame to another rider and can't get a new one until June think it's a better idea to sell off the componentry and get a 2017 full bike.

"World Cup"... It's a wonder anyone outside of Europe gets to race these things.

Did anyone else misread the title and wonder why Go Pro were making a jacket?

YT Adds More Sizes, Updates Build Kits for 2017
@bridgermurray: You still get carbon TSR race's on the top models (some models last year didn't have a Pro Race, just a Pro), with this years Pro models getting the alloy TRS+. I've tested them both alongside my DT Swiss XMC's and the E*13's are much superior, particularly in compliance. The DT's are honestly brutal to ride on solid terrain.

@badbietz: CF Pro Race has X01 11 speed but with a 9-44 TRS cassette (488% range but smaller and lighter than Eagle). While cheaper it does make sense for a race bike I guess. CF One has Sram X1.

Kashima Coating is a proprietary product of the Miyaki Company, I would imagine Fox have to pay to use it. That probably makes the black coating a cheaper more suitable option for their Performance range of shocks, with Kashima reserved for the top level Factory stuff.
