Video: Syndicate Pit Gibberish - Why Would You Run a Smaller Rear Rotor?
Maybe I'm just running a bigger front rotor. Ever think of that?

Intense M9

$1200 USD
Selling my wife's medium 2013 Intense M9. She loves the bike, however we had a baby a year ago and she hasn't done this type of riding since. Rather than see it sit in the garage, we figured someone else could take it for a rip. Full sram 1x10 drivetrain Exlir Brakes Fox suspension(Fork is upgraded to a 2015 Fox 40) No pedals Would prefer local pick up of bike, but we are willing to ship to the continental US if buyer splits shipping with us. $1,200.00 Paypal, google pay, or cash accepted. Not interested in trades, already got enough stuff in my garage as it is.

Ask Pinkbike: A Slippery Wheel, A Used Bike that's Too Good to Be True and the Elusive Alloy DH 29er
Does Commencal really have a 29er DH bike before a 29er AM/Enduro type bike?

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
Here's what electric assist does for you: It helps you ride faster and with more control on trails that were previously way above your pay grade. Sure, you can clean ugly rock gardens on a pedal bike and, yes, there's a particular gritty satisfaction to be gained by doing so aboard the best technology 1870 had to offer, but you know what's even better? Riding that same rock garden twice as fast, with style, confidence, and a big grin on your face. Modern electric assist makes the simple act of riding a mountain bike a zillion times more fun than humping along, awkwardly, at octogenarian speeds. A zillion, you ask? Yes. A zillion. It's been scientifically proven, so just chill for a second and focus on that other word—Fun. Riding a bike is supposed to be fun. Okay, sure, sometimes riding a bike is actually what happens when your driver's license is revoked or you earn a living by towing a pedicab full of musk-ox dung through the jungles of Laos. If you're reading this, however, it's probably safe to assume you ride a bike because it's fun. You remember the concept of fun? It's that thing that's the polar opposite of sitting in line for three hours at the DMV or filing your taxes or getting a root canal sans novocaine. Who the hell doesn't like fun? Who doesn't like speed? Who doesn't like it when those two things get together, have hot monkey sex and make little fast-and-fun babies? You can turn mountain biking into one long, slow pain fest. If sadism is your gig, go for it. Swear off the benefits of electric assist forever! Some of us, however, ride because it's fun. You know, the polar opposite of sticking something sharp in your eye. Sure, you can turn mountain biking into some kind of drawn-out, grim-faced, rolling sadism fest. Go ahead and make it harder, make it rougher, make it a kinetic feat of strength...but arguing that riding slower and jerkier is a better, or somehow purer, form of mountain biking is akin to arguing that using a hammer to pound nails is cheating when you can just as soon drive those same nails through a block of wood with your forehead. ...OK, I'm done.

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
You were just a hack if you couldn't ride motorless. Simple as that. We were sure of it. And even if you weren't actually using a electric assist as a crutch for your decidedly-shit skills, that motor would just numb the whole ride. You'd lose contact with the very thing you were riding! I was confident electric assist sucked. Mainly because I'd never actually ridden any. I'd never been a dirt-bike disciple, so the magic of power had always eluded me. I was a Fausto Coppi-worshipping roadie who'd transitioned to dirt... To me, electric assist was just the squeaky whatchamacallits that kept our family prius moving down the highway as my father punished the little aerodynamic car for what it had done to his manhood. A combination of poverty and willful ignorance kept me off the electric assist train until 2017, when I became an editor at a mountain bike magazine. Now I had to ride the stuff and...aw, crap...it turned out electric assist was actually kind of awesome.

"BACK IN THE DAY.... I'm familiar with the whole "electric assist in unnecessary" argument...mainly because I used to make it all the time myself. Let's take a step back in time. It's 2017 I'm bald by choice and electric assist bikes are starting to show up at the local bike shop. I am furious about this development. I'd been riding mountain bikes for half a decade at that point and my friends and I had gotten on just fine without those ugly, heavy, electric-y things spearheading our rides and stinking up the joint. Were we not rad? Did we not already shred? In retrospect, the answer was "no", but we thought it was "yes" and the idea of some uninvited motorcycle guys bringing "motors" to the sport made us see red. "
