Singletrack Slayer Medium Trek Superfly Comp SS

$1500 USD
Hoping someone buys this soon, so I don't have to go through the hassle of parting it out. Time to get rid of my dream bike, since my dream changed over the past year. This is a RIGID SS that comes ready to ride at under 20lbs (with XTR pedals, not included, and bar ends, bottle cages). I built it up to slice and dice singletrack on my local trails (Del Mar Mesa) and it is an amazing bike for that. It is light, stiff, climbs better than any bike I've ridden, and is about as agile as you can get without being "twitchy". The only reason I am selling is I am shifting away from XC and focusing my riding on Enduro racing and more aggressive trail riding. This isn't the bike for that. It has been hanging in my living room for the last 6 months. My boredom is your gain! The only thing this bike needs to be tearing up the trails is a new chain tensioner (almost ordered one, but since I am selling it and SSers are picky, I didn't bother) or a rear derailleur/shifter/chain. I am open to parting out some of the larger items if the price is right. Spec: Frame- 2013 Superfly Carbon Comp; which has one scar (see photos) where an OTB in a rock garden put a soft spot in the top tube. I took it to a very well respected bike industry insider for carbon repair ( recommendation of the shop that's been servicing my bikes for over 15 yrs). That was @ 4 yrs ago, and I've put thousands of miles on it with ZERO issue since then. He even got the cable bosses tapped into the original holes, so everything is like new. Fork- Whisky 9 Carbon fork (@ $500 retail) Wheels- Easton Trail 70 Carbon (@ $1600 retail and sub 1500gm) Cranks- Shimano XT ($75) Brakes- Shimano XT ($200) Stem- Easton EC 90 ($200) Bars- Easton EC 70 ($100) Seatpost- Easton EC 90 ($175) Seat- Brooks C13 (brand new) ($140) Tires- Vittoria Barxo 29x2.35 ($80)

Review: Troy Lee Designs Stage Helmet
@troyleedesigns: getting mine any day now, after a pretty solid crash at 20mph that buried my A2 in the trail. Figured if I was looking a bit further ahead when i went down, my face would have been hamburger. Looking forward to the extra protection of the Stage!

Review: Yeti's New SB100
For what most people ride, this bike is actually pretty killer. Of course the true big terrain folks need more, and the racers need lighter (depending on the course) but this will do just about everything, with just a minor tweak to your riding style.

Review: Yeti's New SB100
@Golden-G: All these people hating on Yeti for the money sure picked the wrong sport to be cheap about. I can get tires for my KTM Enduro fornot much more than they cost for one of my mtn bikes. And even the "cheap" bikes are a few grand. Try running if the price hurts, but don't judge people who choose to buy the high end stuff. We all ride, and that's what matters.

First Ride: Yeti’s New SB150
@Christianjurkowski: Congrats if it is a new engagement, but dude, 10 diamonds for under $ are a fool for posting that on a website where someone (the one who got the ring?) might see it and realize a bike cost more than her ring.

First Ride: Yeti’s New SB150
@wibblywobbly: But it is a fair comparisson, as you aren't racing Pro so who cares what the pro bikes do. I have a KTM 690 that is an absolute monster and barely cost more than the top of the line Yeti. There is a valid argument to be made on why the mtn bike costs so much. Instead of focusing on "what if" crap, focus on the reality. Primary reason they cost so much is we will pay for them. Secondary reasons are tied to economies of scale: spreading the cost of R&D, molds, equipment, floor space, etc...over lower volume items. Now what the bike shops charge, that is just crazy.

Race Face Introduces Next R36 Carbon Wheelset
I'm 220 w/ gear and was riding Next Sls on a short travel bike for 2 yrs with ZERO issues. They are now on my trail hardtail and are still going strong. Every brand has their failures, and the only way to know what brand is good vs bad is to look at overall recall/failure rate. Anecdotal evidence ("I know someone", "My crank broke") isn't a meaningful indicator or brand performance without the big picture, since most negative experiences get far more traction than the "set it and forget it" experiences most of us have.
