Wanted: Tapered 26" 140+mm travel fork

$300 USD
I'm looking for a 140mm up to 160mm travel 26" fork with 34, 35 or 36mm stanchions. If the fork can be lowered to 140mm travel that works fine as well. I can't use any steerer tubes under 7.5"/190mm. Looking for Pike, 34, 36, 44, 55, Ribbon, Loop TR, Mattoc, Lyric... something along those lines.

Intense Announces Lower Retail Prices and Hybrid Direct-to-Customer Sales
@freestyIAM I own a bike shop and that's exactly how we function. Custom wheels, suspension work, brake overhauls, high end hub rebuilds, and normal repairs is our focus. I can't afford to have a fleet of bikes on the floor only to have them be blown out by the suppliers and crush any margin I may have had. When sales reps come in looking to get their bikes represented in the store and I have to turn them away because it's a bad investment in my local market. People come to us because we stock what we know is durable, what works in our area and what has good company backings and we try to bring in as many USA made options as well. There are only 2 of us at the shop. Both UBI and DT Swiss certified. My mechanic makes $3.50 an hour more than I make because I know that the wages in a bike shop don't compare to working in a mill and I want my employees to strive to pick up every bit of feedback we get from our experiences riding trails, parts and from our customers. I looked at the way the industry has been moving over the last 15 years that I've been wrenching professionally and structured my shop to take up the slack from online direct sales and poor LBS experiences. It's really the only way I can be competitive on my prices and keep the doors open. What I think most of these companies aren't seeing is that when bike shops quit recommending or pushing brands of bikes because the brand, model and are irrelevant to the shop (pick what makes you happy and click order on your smart phone) combined with the perpetual need to one-up the next guy with a new "industry standard" that is actually more proprietary than standard; I imagine we will see a heavy stagnation of bikes in an oversaturated and under supported market. Try calling the big companies that do online direct sales and getting good customer support. They say take it to you LBS and have them contact us. That's terrible in the eyes of the customer especially when the LBS is a dying breed and not everyone has access to a shop.

Felt Bicycles 2018 - First Look
It takes a 6mm allen at the shock bolt, push the shock out of the rocker with the lower shock bolt still in, simply lift the swingarm with one hand to relieve swingarm pressure. Those flip chips are o-ring lined too for those of us in Washington that ride in rain more than in sun. It's easy. I can flip modes in less time than friends eat a granola bar on mid-ride breaks.

@jclnv: That's a pretty close minded view. The Decree feels exactly like a slopestyle bike you can pedal. You know the bike that every couple months someone posts in the forum wanting to put a really long seatpost on a slopestyle bike and take it to the trails... The Decree is a fine tuned version of that. I's a BMX bike with suspension. It may not be at a 63 degree headangle like all the new trendy enduro bikes but the Decree is a far more versatile trail tool. if you want a slack angle, then keep an eye out for the new Compulsion. it's far closer to the "enduro' market with 160mm travel(and it's all new for 2018).
