2016 Mondraker Crafty R+ XL Run only as a 29er, but sold with the original 650b+ wheels. Rockshox Yari fork has been upgraded with a Charger 2 damper. Monarch Plus shock regularly serviced, as is the fork. Original wheels/tyres (currently has a WTB rear on, but original Maxxis included) which have only been ridden twice on a different bike, tubeless. Shimano Zee brakes. Original Race Face crankset, new Shimano SLX rear mech with 11 speed drivetrain. Original Mondraker handlebars, stem and seatpost (never ridden) and saddle. Frame and fork were fully Invisiframed from new. Now peeling at a couple of edges but left on as still good. My name sticker is under the Invisiframe on the top tube, I'll peel back the Invisiframe and remove the sticker if the buyer wishes, or they can stick something over the top. Overall the bike is in excellent condition, only chips are on the brace of the rear triangle behind the BB where running a larger 29er tyre has caused chips from rocks getting wedged and underneath the BB (see photo). Its more orange in real life than my photos make it, for some reason my phone makes it look rather red. It is a long bicycle, and an XL frame. It suits larger riders, 6'2" and over really. If you are 5' something, don't bother ;-) Any inspection welcomed. Happy to meet at a neutral location within a reasonable distance. Just inbox me to discuss.

Tracy Hannah looking fast you say? Sadly too fast. Broken femur means she is out for a while. GWS.

Red Bull Gives Emilie Siegenthaler Wings..
pentrials2 says "UCI officials riding the course in XC helmets and Warners camera man riding the course in a pisspot is a much bigger deal in terms of safety on the course IMO." Both of those were riders using the course outside of official practise or race times. The UCI technical delegate is responsible for checking the course before the start of each day. To walk down it would take way to long, so as the tech delegate is an experienced DH racer he chose to roll down it to check it. Perfectly sensible. Warner and his cameraman ran after the course was closed (the two official course clearing riders had come down already). From a UCI point of view the course was closed. The marshals were told two TV riders were coming but only so they could make sure the course was still clear. The decision to allow TV is then from the organisers not the UCI. krixmeister - It doesn't mater its RedBull, it matters its a tv production company working officially, since they then have more responsibility. Doddsy2801 - armour is recommended by the UCI. Look what happens in France when armour is required, you get people with cardboard spine protectors and bandages for elbow pads. Thats a joke and would look hugely bed for the UCI if it happened like that at all rounds. At a World Cup riders are a lot more responsible for themselves than at lower level events and they are allowed to make decisions about their own safety themselves, largely. Would you rather than only certain equipment was UCI verified and riders had to use it? That would be a right ball ache for everyone and cost you ('cos manufacturers would past costs onto consumers) a load of money. Less than great. ste-tommo - saddle levels were not checked simply because no official UCI jig was available (I'm only half joking). As for this specific helmet mount. It was a well made rig by a professional TV production company. Its legal in the rules and was allowed. Simple. Storm in a tea-cup, thanks Si.
