SRAM Code RSC Brakes - Review
I've had Sram Guide RE's (slightly better than meh), XT's (cheap enough the adjusting/couple bleed sessions was worth it), and now both my hardtail & Bronson2 both have Saints (whatever the latest model -820?) You can't convince me (without me riding these new Sram brakes) - that I'd want to give up my Saints. Saints do act like a on / off lever if you just install the pre-bled ones, but if you bleed them they modulate really well IMO. Saints are just such a final answer, so I'm real skeptical these can out-perform them.

Rock Shox Pike RCT3 / dual air / 160mm / boost

$500 USD
Selling a Rockshox Pike RCT3 160mm fork I had installed when building my bike up. It is boost size, 15x110 I've seen 2 other 'solo air' for the same (or more) --- so I think I'm the best deal going on a near new Pike for Boost'ed 27.5" people. It's the 'dual suspension air' model, one of the current 2017-2018 Pike RCT3 range - I took a pic of the labels on the back of the fork tubes so you can verify anything, HTH. It's had very easy use as I pulled it early Summer & just now got to advertising it. The fork was on for maybe ~4mo (Mar-June) - during early/cold WA Spring & I hate cold rides, big time. I'll guess at 50 miles total on it since my local loop is a ~4 mile track between street & mild single-track & I did about 10-12 rides to shakedown the Bronson 2 I'd built from a frame up. Never down or dropped, the 2 paintchips are pictured (just 2, front & rear of center bridge - very small & on the crown where you pull the bearing race), shock tubes are absolutely 100% perfect. It has 8.75" still on the tube (new is 10" & most for a SC frame get cut to ~7.25"), since I knew it was going to get resold I didn't cut it shorter. (My other fork was on warranty getting fixed) -- I wanted to leave options for the next owner. IDK the other frame builders, but mine has the most tube uncut on it as well. It has the 'stealth black' set of stickers (not sure if they show in pic, PM me if you need another) - on it & will ship in the original box, star nut in tube. Stickers were either from that guy in Canada or the guy in England, I forget which. $500, you pay the ride and paypal fees - so if you're lower 48 say $525-530 I just looked it up & they are $950 & up, plus tax & ship, so I my price is about 1/2 of new for a 4mo installed shock. If it had a straight steer tube I'd stick it on my hardtail & keep. Prefer to ship to the lower 48, but have shipped globally plenty. Or can meet if you're local, save you the ship. Link to the fork on Rock Shox site: https://www.sram.com/rockshox/products/pike-rct3-0#sm.0000mi7g9d1cfdoeuo72p3xuflxk2 __________________________________________________________ The *** only *** trades I'd hear are for older Fox Float forks with a straight tube (~100mm travel) & Shimano Saint brakes - I have a old hardtail I love/keep, but your stuff has to be in great condition. Or I'd add cash for a Santa Cruz Heckler frame in 'Large' & 27.5" generation, I STILL want my old one back.

Too Long? Too Slack? Not Enough? – Pinkbike Poll
To me the annoying thing is the way the standards of all the componentry keeps changing - I'd easily still be riding an older GT Ruckus hardtail but by the time new standards come around, you can't even run the same hubs from a Bronson to a Bronson V2. I try to buy from my LBS & they just can't keep all the generations of any decent component -- so really I'd rather they slow down how fast 'standards' change (can we have 5-7 yrs SRAM???) -- and then let the frame builders go nuts making a range of frames for different rider styles. Heck, right now I bet most of the companies you can't use the same hubs across all their 2017 lineup, it's that bad.

A Quick Guide To The Most Effective Poses For Mountain Bikers - Monthly Yoga With Abi
I like these if for no other reason than I can "try" yoga in my own home rather than subject some poor local yoga instructor to my complete lack of experience. -- I know I'd be 'that clown in the back row'. You're doing the world a service keeping some of us out of local yoga studios, Abi !!!

Who Won The Push Industries Pimp My Bike?
Congrats to winner. I had to take the consolation prize, bit the bullet on a R-n-D one. At least I have tire money left.

2 Reasons Why Your Disc Brakes Don't Work
@fartymarty: Same - I bet the Hope camp will dis on my going Saints, but XT & Saint is all I've had since V-brakes died, have always been great to me. I was either taken by propaganda or it really works, but I run the sintered metal pads, never saw pad material mentioned in article. Propaganda?
