I like to ride bikes on dirt. When I'm at home I like to dig in the dirt. When I'm not doing either of those two things I'm probably at work, building machines.

Specialized Update Enduro for 2018 - First Look - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@Uhlrichl1: also the Butcher Grid is awesome. I ran Minions for a long time, them tried the Butcher Grid in 27.5 x 2.8 and I'm not going back.

Thanks. I love the bike but I broke my collarbone recently so I can't ride it for a while. I figure when I get back on the bike I'll get a Wreckoning or something similar so I can climb too.

Rocky Mountain Maiden - Large

$4500 USD
Full carbon DH bike with 650B (27.5) Enve carbon wheelset. This is a $10K+ build with no issues whatsoever. It has very few rides on it. Everything works and the only signs of wear are minor scratches and scuffs. I'm selling to make room for a long travel AM bike. This is the bike of choice at the Whistler bike park. You can set it up with a 650B wheelset or 26" without affecting the geometry. This bike has nice tight geometry, making it a playful DH bike. 425mm chainstay length is super tight and you know it when you ride it. It pops off lips and lofts the front wheel with ease. Super fun bike. I'm selling it cheap, but not any cheaper than I have it listed for.

Intense Spider XVP

$1200 USD
This is a very nice 120mm travel Trail / XC bike. It is built up with mostly Shimano XT components for rock solid reliability and ease of maintenance. It has a newer carbon wheelset built up on DT Swiss 240s hubs. The hubs have custom white decals to match the bike, but they are not the cheaper Taiwanese-made DT 350 hubs. This wheelset alone cost as much as I'm asking for the bike. This bike is snappy and responsive. It climbs like a mountain goat. The lightweight carbon tubeless wheelset helps tremendously on technical climbs due to the low rotational inertia. The kinematics of the VPP rear suspension are excellent for climbing and descending. There is no noticeable pedal bob or pedal kickback, so the bike climbs efficiently and decends smoothly. Descending is excellent for a bike in this category. Intense is a company that has made great descenders for decades, and the Spider was their take on an XC bike. It also has a nearly new KS LEV dropper seatpost. If you have never ridden a bike with a dropper post, this is a game changer. You can climb with full leg extension, then when the trail points downward, press the KS button and drop the seat out of the way for the descent. This is one of the last Made in USA Intense bikes. I've got over $6000 into this bike, including the upgrades it's had over the years. It's a very nice bike at an entry level price. Buy it, ride it and have a good time. Here is a list of the components: Intense Spider XVP w/ Fox Float RP3, 120mm of rear travel Fox 32 Float RLC fork, 120mm of travel Light Bicycle 33mm (27mm internal) carbon fiber rims, laced to DT Swiss 240s hubs w/ DT Swiss Competition spokes and brass nipples KS LEV dropper post Shimano XT brakes with big 203mm/180mm (front/rear) rotors Shimano XT 3x9 drivetrain Thomson stem FSA carbon fiber handlebar WTB saddle Lizard Skins lock on grips (same clamps as ODI, so lots of options) Maxxis Minion DHR II 2.3 front tire Maxxis Ardent 2.25 rear tire

@Waldon83: If it made me ride like Joel Anderson I'd grab one now! Check out the bike on the BTR Fabrications website. The welds and finish are beautiful. Prettiest ladder I've ever seen!

Intend Suspension – Bike Festival Riva, 2017
@Bustacrimes: Agreed. One point though: stiffness is quantifiable as well but it's harder to publish. We would need to use standard tests with meaningful constraints, loading conditions and reasonable confidence intervals. From what I understand, testing and publishing values for frame stiffness is common in Germany, but the tests don't necessarily represent what the frame sees in actual riding conditions and too few replicates are taken in order to know the statistical significance. Thus the published stiffness values are touted about like weights are here, but they don't really mean much.
