Excellent, lightweight and stiff wheels, still in outstanding condition. Ten speed hub size. $300 for the pair.

Shimano Ultegra wheels, in great condition. Probably only around 1500k total on these wheels. These wheels are very smooth and comfortable, and good for endurance riding. I’d suggest they are more suited for a lighter weight rider, as heavier riders (i.e., me) will find themselves needing to true them regularly. In the interest of full disclosure, I observed this with these wheels from brand new, but it never caused me any issues: https://www.bikeradar.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12612099 I also have a few extra spokes that I can include.

This is a great endurance-style road bike, with a 56cm seat tube and 57.5cm top tube length, built to fit someone approximately 5’11” to 6’3”. The titanium frame offers lots of smoothness and it is a really comfortable bike. As good as steel, but no rust! The frame is in perfect shape, other than that the notoriously gutless Lynskey stickers are peeling off. The bike currently has an Easton carbon fork, MEC carbon seatpost, a really nice Specialized Phenom saddle, and top end Ritchie bars. The stem is nothing special. The wheels are a mid-level Mavic road wheel- nothing fancy, but strong and reliable. It’s got an FSA/Shimano 105 triple drivetrain from around 2013, which doesn’t have too much mileage on it, but is finicky like all triples from that era- I think I did a good job of adjusting it, and it is decently functional, but it’s the one part of the bike you may want to have a professionally tuned or that you may want to upgrade. The pedals are brand new, clipless SPD on one side if you want to go that route, or standard flat pedals on the other. Here’s a link to information about the frame: https://www.maplewoodbicycle.com/product/lynskey-performance-peloton-frame-192279-1.htm The bike is located in Nanaimo, but I often travel up and down the island, so delivery is definitely possible. Thanks for looking! This has been a great bike for me, and I am only selling it because I bought a new bike.

Do You Ride Responsibly? – Poll
"My response was that the locals may be annoyed about losing their fresh and loamy-looseness, but many of the trails here are unofficial and on private land. Secondly, everyone is a local somewhere. If we all take care of a spot, then trail karma will spread and all spots will improve and extend. Right? Maybe." Really? Ever heard of Tragedy of the Commons? So the 50to01 crew conferred with the private land owners and asked if it was OK if they beat the crap out of their trails? And, it's OK to destroy anything on "unofficial" land? And the 50to01 crew is carefully tracking how much work they do and keeping it equal with the trails they wreck? Call me skeptical because I say BS to every single one of your justifications.

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
"I’ll also argue that it’s worth your while to ride an e-bike before you pass judgement on them. That is, to my way of thinking, common sense. We should understand a thing before we form an opinion about it. It might change your mind. Or maybe it wouldn’t. Either way, you’d be informed." Man, Felton, I love your writing and all, and basically agree with most of your points, but this is just wrong. Big wrong. I don't need to ride an eBike to understand it any more than I have to wrestle a pig to know something is awful. There's no mystery in understanding eBikes: they provide a boost for people who can't and/or won't pedal hard enough to get where they want to go. And I don't mean that in a disparaging way. I see the purpose and utility in eBikes, and I am especially stoked to see the local ancients here out riding the bike paths instead of whiffing past my elbow in their sedans. But, I don't need to ride an eBike to know that more power in the hands of morons never has a good outcome. Your argument for regulation and clarity is totally sound, but not the idea that I have to cross to the dark side to understand my (possible) enemy.

I'm glad they corrected the spelling of her name on the cheque! I've always wanted a huge cheque like that, though. I'd fold it up about 20 times and shove it in the ATM.

Up for sale is an unused 6 cell 11.1v lithium ion battery. I got this from the Pro's Closet on Ebay, hoping it would work with my Light & Motion Seca 800. Turns out this is one of the L&M lights that cannot use this battery, nor is my L&M charger capable of handling a 6 cell battery. So, here's the battery at an excellent price. I haven't used or charged the battery (for obvious reasons) but it does look brand new to me. The box the battery came in looks a bit beat up like it has been sitting on shelf somewhere for a while, but the Pro's Closet has an awesome reputation on Ebay, so I am sure the battery is as new and fresh as they claimed. The battery comes with a velcro frame strap.

Up for sale, a Light & Motion Seca 800 in great shape, and the charger. I used this light infrequently for a couple of years, and it works fine. The battery has rolled over, however, so here's hoping someone out there has a compatible battery and wants a great light for cheap!
