Will upload non-potato photos this weekend. Selling my custom built Mongoose EC-X since I don't ride it anymore. This this is a beast for pump track, 4x, DS and won the 2006 4x national champs Size is a S/M (I'm 5'11") and it's a good size for 4x/DJ's for me First off. The rear triangle as it's built right now is only a few years old. When I was painting it, the bike shop that I had press out the bearing on the frame broke the rear triangle so they actually got an entirely new frame from Mongoose. So included with the sale (haven't taken photos yet) is an entirely new, never been ridden, front triangle that is unpainted. Frame: Mongoose EC-X Shock: RockShox MC3.1 (has a "lockout" that is adjustable to how much force takes to overcome it) Fork: Marzocchi MX 2008 100mm (what the Commencial 4x team was using at that time) Front Wheel: Mavic 719 28 hole w/ Kenda Small Block 8 2.1 Rear Wheel: Mavic 721 32h laced to Bontrager Earl Hub w/ Schwable Racing Ralph 2.1 Headset: FSA Sealed Bearings Bars: Race Face Atlas (think I cut them down 10mm on each end) Grips: Lock ons (forget the brand) Stem: Truvative Hussefelt 60mm Brakes: Avid Elixr 5 front Avid Juicy 5 Rear 6" f/r Cranks: Saint with 32t ring on there right now. Also have a 34 and 36t e.13 ring that I could swap on. Guide : E.13 LG1 Shifter: 9sp Alivio 2016 Derailer: 2007 XTR Short Cage Chain: SRAM 970 Cassette: SRAM 970 (might be 950) 11-32 Seatpost: Easton single bolt (forget the model number) Seat: MOST road saddle from a Pinarello Dogma (MOST is Pinarello's house brand)...it's light. Pedals: I can include either no name flats or no name spd's if you want. 400 is not firm I can ship to the USA. If it does ship I'm not sure if I'll be able to fit the extra front triangle in the same box so not sure how much extra the shipping on just the triangle would be.

Big Berms and Flat Turns: Sea Otter 2017 Dual Slalom - Photo Recap
DS is by far the most spectator friendly AND exciting form of MTB to watch. Yes DH is exciting to watch but seeing two people go head to head is way better to watch from an outside point of view and you can see the entire course. DS FOR LIFE. Also sea otter wouldn't be worth going to without it.

Marin Wolf Ridge: First Ride
Missed the Polygon release but the way that it works reminds me a ton of what Yeti was doing years ago with it's track system on the 303s. It has a funky visual weight though :/ Reminds me of the old GT and mongoose frames with their floating BB before they figured out the right way to massage the design so it looked less blocky. Or the original Giant Glory with it's very bottom heavy visual weight.
