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.

Mountain Bike Access Issues Flaring Up in San Diego County
@Almazing: Regarding enforcement and ticketing: this happens every few years at some of our riding spots. Del Mar Mesa, East Elliott, Ted's and Calavera all come to mind. It's always short lived though. Nobody is paying thousands in fines. All I'm saying is the riding here is great. Sure it would be great if the trails were legal, but for now they're not. Lots are though and more are on their way to becoming legal. Look at Black Mountain and Fanita Ranch. Absolutely fantastic trails with advocacy and support on all sides.

Mountain Bike Access Issues Flaring Up in San Diego County
I disagree with the core argument in this comment. San Diego is a great place to ride mountain bikes; you just have to get used to riding illegal trails.

Canyon Recalls Mountain Bikes Due to Crash Hazard
Same thing with Specialized. I went through three chainstays on a Stumpjumper and no recall ever.

Do You Ride Responsibly? – Poll
Just checked to see if you're in San Diego. Apparently in Utah you guys have the same problems we have out here. The only difference here is that it's pretty hard not to ride illegal trails, but one can make an effort to stay off the trails that are disputed at any given time.

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. Large 2017 Rocky Mountain Maiden frame DVO Jade coil shock with 550lb/in spring Enve M90 Ten wheelset with DT Swiss 240s hubs 54 tooth star ratchet in hub SR Suntour Rux fork Race Face 6C Cinch carbon cranks Race Face 36 tooth chainring Shimano Saint drivetrain Magura MT7 brakes Maxxis DH casing Maxx Grip tires (Minion DHF front and High Roller II rear) Spank Spike 800mm Vibrocore bar Spank Spike stem WTB saddle Race Face seatpost

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
