I bought this right before our driest winters in recent memory. So that means it has maybe 10 snow rides on it. I never did dirt rides on it since I have a trail bike for that! This a 17"(for reference, I'm 5'10") Fuji Wendigo 1.1. Full carbon frame and fork with DT Swiss wheels and SRAM XO1 drivetrain and SRAM Guide RS brakes. It has Raceface Next SL carbon cranks. Original retail price $4995.00 The weight out of the box was 25.8 lbs. I changed the front chainring to a 28t for snow riding. I also swapped the Schwalbe tires for some Surly Bud/Lou tires for better traction. The Surly tires are 2.2 lbs heavier but the traction is sooo much better than the Schwalbes. I put a shorter 50mm Spank stem on it because the original stem was long and made the steering slow and heavy. Thanks for looking!

A Cycling Passion Without Boundaries: This is UR World Episode 3 - Video
Kenta is such a great guy! I was lucky enough to take him on the iconic Monarch Crest trail last summer and it was super cool to see his riding style- a combo of World Cup XC and World Cup DH. And he was quite kind to wait for me at the top of every climb and the bottom of every descent. Ha! Best of luck to him this season!

For sale here is a 2016 Smuggler frame (size L) $900, a 2016 Rockshox Pike RLC 140mm $350, and a hand built wheelset $350. Frame details: has a Fox Evol Shock upgrade (recently serviced) with Syntace needle bearing shock bushings, headset included, fancy Salsa seatpost clamp. No dents or gouges in the frame, just normal wear and tear. Fork details: not boost, recently serviced, has the new charger damper seal head which is smoother than the original, 4 air volume reducers installed, one small scratch on the stanchion but only cosmetic, normal wear and tear with no dents or gouges. Wheel details: hand built non boost 29" wheelset, DT 350 hubs: 6-bolt, 32 hole, 15X100mm front axle, 142X12mm rear axle, XD driver. Spokes are 14/15 silver with black alloy nipples. Front rim is Colorado Composites carbon with 29mm inner width-great condition with normal scratches but no hits. Rear is Race Face ARC27 aluminum with a couple dingers but still running pretty true and holding air pressure with no leaks. Extras: DT HG cassette driver body for the rear hub. Rockshox Monarch Debonair RL (original shock from frame), internal housing anti-rattle foam, headset made from several spare headsets-still feels like new.

Watch for Clare Hamilton in the future. She's never raced an Enduro, entered Pro, won a stage and placed fourth overall. I'd say she is destined for greatness!!
