I’m moving and thinning out bikes and parts in preparation. Need to sell one frameset, so I’m offering my near-new GG Smash. Guerrilla Gravity is a small manufacturer in Denver. The Smash is their bigger-travel 29er. 140mm of plush Horst-link travel, meant to be paired with a 140 to 160 fork. Longer wheelbase for high-speed stability, pretty slack head angle, steep seat angle, Boost. You can get all specifics on the frame and the company at www.ridegg.com This bike pedals very well and mobs downhill. Excellent all-rounder or one-bike quiver. I took delivery of this frame about six weeks ago and it’s nearly perfect. Still assembled so you can test if you’re local, but the price is for the parts listed. Smash frame, size Large, none-more-Black with gold decals. It includes a Rockshox metric Super Deluxe coil shock with 400-lb spring (not the air shock shown). The coil performs significantly better than the Super Deluxe air in Phoenix terrain. Also includes the GG water bottle and cage, the NUTS bracket and strap to hold tools, axle, clamp, FSA DX Pro headset ($45), BSA threaded BB for 30mm axle ($50), and the needed wide 143mm Race Face axle ($80) to run modular cranks ( RF Next, Turbine, etc.) All told, I have close to $2700 in those parts, so $1900 with immediate delivery — no waiting weeks for your frame to be built and shipped — is a good deal. Serious only, please. No trades. Scottsdale. PM with questions or to make arrangements. Thanks for reading. I’ll eat the PP fees and will ship insured Fedex in the lower 48.

The real problem with getting old? Not fitness; I’m fitter now than I was 30 years ago. It’s short-term memory issues. I am mind-blind when it comes to hardtails. I love the simplicity and the beauty. My ankles, knees and lower back, however? Not so much. This is a freshly rebuilt 2015 Canfield Bros. Nimble 9, size XL 29er. For aggro hardtails, this is arguably as good as it gets. I’m the original owner of this frame. I sold it to a local who’s been riding it and I recently bought it back, rebuilt it and have ridden it a few times. And, yes, it’s chrome. I truly love this bike and don’t want to see it sitting in the garage. Frame: 2015 XL Canfield Bros Nimble 9 steel hardtail, chrome, perfect condition. 142x12 rear, slack, super-short rear that clear big tires even when slammed, adjustable drops so it can be run SS. I’m 6’2 with a 34 inseam for sizing reference. Headset: Cane Creek 40. Fork: Rockshox Pike RC3, set at 130, perfect, non-boost, long steerer for cockpit adjustment. Wheelset: Very nice Response 30 non-boost wheels. I understand these are locally built. Stoked with these wheels and would run them again. 30mm internal, 102 poe rear hub, XD driver. Tires: Specialized Butcher 29x2.6 Grid front, Maxxis Minion DHRII 29x2.4 Exo TR rear, both tubeless. Cockpit: Race Face Atlas 800 bars, 35mm clamp, RF 50mm stem, Deity grips. Brakes: Shimano XT M785 180/160 rotors. Seating: KS Lev 150mm dropper, WTB Silverado saddle, Thomson clamp. Drivetrain: SRAM GX 1x11, Shimano cranks with RF 30-tooth ring (includes 32-tooth ring). Includes Shimano clipless pedals and Arundel bottle cage as shown. $1600, cash, Scottsdale. Very, very strong preference for Phoenix locals, but will consider shipping on buyer’s dime. I will consider certain things in full or partial trade. A newest-gen MacBook. A very nice 160 travel 29er fork with minimum 8-inch steerer ( Lyrik, Ribbon, etc). An XL Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 or Hightower frameset. Will add cash for a more complete build. Thanks for reading. PM to make arrangements.
