Review: Fezzari's 2019 La Sal Peak is a Fun & Modern All-Rounder
For a bike that's well equipped with modern geometry, I can't get past the branding. Fezzari always carried a "cheap knockoff" stigma for me, and until this article, I had no idea where they came from. I always thought it was odd having such high end components on what came across as a cheap frame. I think an overall rebrand would do well by what looks to be a solid bike for folks that have the same misconception (I know I'm not the only one).

This is a brand new takeoff RockShox Revelation RC DebonAir fork with 15x110mm Boost spacing for 29" or 27.5" wheeled bikes. It has 130mm of travel and 51mm offset in Diffusion Black. This is the version with 35mm stanchions like the Pike. It has ghost back decals, star nut installed, axle, and 7" of tapered steerer. I have ridden these forks and absolutely love them. Couple quick points if you're curious- yes you can change travel with new air shafts as you would in a Pike. If you have a non-boost wheel, you can get an aftermarket adapter to reduce axle width if you want to go that route.

Business in the front, party in the back! What you see here is a 69er built using a 16" steel On-One inbred as the platform. Best of both worlds- climbs & descends all with the easy simplicity of a SS. It's unique, it's cool, and it'll probably start a conversation wherever you go. It's currently set up single speed, but it has an integrated derailleur hanger to run gears if that's your cup of tea. The rear hub is a geared hub that's been converted to SS with a spacer kit. Set up 32x19t and tensioned with a DT Swiss RWS ratcheting skewer on sliding dropouts, and chain tugs are included. Has room out back for a 27.5" / 650B setup too. Full Specs: -On-One inbred DNC6 chromoly frame with vertical dropout and integrated derailleur hanger, 16" (small/medium depending on your sizing preferences) -Steel 29" rigid fork, 490mm A2C, refinished in black- I think it began life as a Salsa or Redline -Shimano XT Hollowtech crankset w/ 32t ring, recent bottom bracket, 175mm -Avid Elixir CR brakeset, 160mm G3 rotors -Wheelset- front 29" WTB Frequency i23 Team rim laced to a fully sealed DMR Revolver QR hub and rear is a Mavic Crossride 26" with straight pull bladed spokes and sealed bearings -Tires- front WTB Bronson 2.2", rear Maxxis Minion DHF 2.3" -Cane Creek S5 headset -WTB Moto-X lock-on grips -19t steel single speed wide-splined cog w/ anodized red SS spacer kit -Fizik Nisene saddle -FSA OS168 60mm stem -Funn Full On riser bars, 785mm -Extras: DT Swiss RWS ratcheting skewer, chain tugs for sliding dropouts, carbon headset spacers, Salsa Lip-Lock seatpost collar The bike is in great shape without any dents or cracks. I don't know if you'll spend more time riding it or fielding questions about it, but it's a sweet rig for sure.

This is an XL Misfit Dissent 29er with sliding dropouts. The frame uses a 1-1/8" steerer tube, a threaded 24mm bottom bracket, and rear spacing is 135mm. I had it listed previously as a frameset, but decided to build it back up to a complete, including many new parts. I was going for a mostly black theme with it. This is my third Misfit DiSSent and I've loved all of them. It's one of the most compliant aluminum frames and rides like a steel frame. These frames almost have a cult following, me included. Full build specs- -Misfit Dissent 29" frame with CNC’d sliding dropouts, XL (21.5") -Steel Kona P2 new geo disc fork with 470mm A2C, matching matte black -Salsa flip-lock seatpost clamp -Ritchey Comp seatpost, 27.2mm -Brand new sealed bearing headset- just pressed with completely sealed bearings, it's basically a Chris King knockoff; I run these on a few of my bikes and they've been maintenance free and buttery smooth -Ritchey Comp 4-axis stem, 120mm -Bontrager Mustang disc single speed wheelset -Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.25" front, Continental X-King 2.2" rear tire, front is nearly new with about 20 miles and rear is brand new -FSA V-Drive MegaExo hollow forged crankset, 175mm -Easton Haven carbon riser bars -KMC Z410 single speed gold chain w/ master link, new -Giant Contact SL Saddle, SS Ti rails, new takeoff -Avid Elixir 7 brakeset w/ brand new 160mm HS1 rotors, bled and grippy -Blackspire 34t Mono Veloce aluminum single speed chainring -20t steel single speed cog- I think it's a Surly not positive, but it's not the cheap stamped steel type of cog -Troy Lee Designs lock-on grips with custom brushed aluminum bar plugs -Extras: brass headtube badge, rear aluminum badge, Salsa front skewer/SRAM rear I went over the whole bike when I built it back up and installed new parts where it needed it. Between the Ti railed saddle, hollow cranks, and carbon bars, it's a pretty light bike even with tubes. The brakes have strong, fresh bleeds, the bearings on the bottom bracket are good. There are no dents or dings on the frame, and I touched up a few rub spots. Whoever gets this is getting a very fun bike. I parking lot tested it to make sure everything was tight and torqued, but it hasn't seen trail time yet. You'll get to be the first to ride as she is pictured right now. I'm in the DC/Maryland/Virgina area, and I'm also willing to ship for cost on BikeFlights.

This is a 58cm Fuji Cross Comp cyclocross rig. Miles are low and was used sparingly as a backup. It's completely stock except the saddle is a brand new and upgraded Prologo Nago Evo Tri 40. Has a 105 drivetrain, aluminum frame and carbon fork. It was my second Fuji Cross Comp and I love how these things ride. Full Specs: -58cm Fuji Cross Comp aluminum frame with carbon fork -FSA Gossamer MegaExo crankset, 46/36t, 172.5mm -Shimano 105 2x10 shifters -Shimano 105 front derailleur -Shimano 105 10spd rear derailleur -Shimano 105 12-25t 10spd cassette -KMC DX10 10spd chain -Shimano 105 integrated brake levers and Tektro RL-721 cross top mount levers w/ Tektro Oryx calipers -Alex DC-19 w/ Kenda Kwick Cross tires -Fuji CGC 110mm stem -Fuji CGC seatpost, 27.2mm -Prologo Nago Evo Tri 40 saddle, T2.0 rails The bike is in great shape. No dents or cracks, and the drivetrain shifts smooth and looks nearly new.

These are a set of Avid XX carbon brakes off a large hardtail. Lines are plenty long for most frames. Pads are in great shape, and the brakes are very light. They have carbon levers that are in great shape without cracks, in-line pad adjustment on the levers, and mounting hardware for the handlebar clamps. Ready to mount and ride.

This is a 29" Reba RL Solo Air set at 100mm. It has a tapered steerer tube and 9mm quick release dropout spacing. Offset is 46mm, it has 7-1/8" of tapered steerer tube, and there's a star nut installed. It looks new aside from a little dust near the seals, and functions as new. Great fork, and I also have two travel spacers I'm including. They are two 10mm spacers, so you can lower to either 90mm or 80mm internally. Cane Creek crown race included if you want it (can remove if you don't).

This is a brand new 2018 RockShox Reba RL 150mm fork for 15x110 Boost spaced wheels with a tapered steerer tube and 51mm offset. It will take a 27.5"+ or 29" tire setup. I purchased it for my Kona Honzo, but am going with a lower travel option that I have on hand instead. It has ZERO miles. You can reduce travel internally. This is the longest travel option Reba available, making it the lightest long travel fork in the RockShox range. It uses the magnesium Revelation lowers before the Revelation switched to the Pike chassis so it's plenty stiff and light at the same time. I run the same fork on another bike and I'm very happy with it. This is the diffusion black model with stealth logos. I cut it at 7-3/4" and installed a star nut so it should fit any frame. Cane Creek 40 crown race included if you want it.

This is an XL Misfit Dissent 29er frameset with sliding dropouts and a bunch of extras. It has both the geared dropout with derailleur hanger and the single speed dropout. They don't make the hanger any more, and it's very rare. There are no dents or dings on the frame, and it's in great shape. I touched up a few rub spots too. It comes with a Kona Project 2 steel fork with updated geometry that has a 470mm A2C and width to support up to a 2.8" tire (3" if it's on the narrower side). Frame uses a 1-1/8" steerer tube, a threaded 24mm bottom bracket, and rear spacing is 135mm quick release. It has a headset, stem, seatpost, and seatpost collar all included. This is my third Misfit Dissent and I've loved all of them. Every time I go to a geared bike (I prefer running these SS) or a boost frame, I keep missing the simplicity and lightness of these and return to them. I've had these built up as low as 22lbs in the past. While it's aluminum, it is very compliant and rides like a steel frame. They almost have a cult following, me included. Full build specs- -Misfit Dissent 29" frame with sliding dropouts and both single speed and geared derailleur hanger dropout, XL (21.5") -Steel Kona P2 new geo disc fork with 470mm A2C, matching matte black -Salsa flip-lock seatpost clamp -Generic seatpost, 27.2mm, 350mm -Brand new sealed bearing headset- just pressed with completely sealed bearings, it's basically a Chris King knockoff; I run these on a few of my bikes and they've been maintenance free and buttery smooth -Ritchey Comp 4-axis stem, 120mm -Extras: brass headtube badge, rear aluminum badge, both dropouts

I have a lightly used Trico Sports Iron Case in great shape with good foam. Straps, buckles, wheels, and all three foam inserts are all in good shape without any issues. It will fit nearly any bike (it was most recently used to ship a 22" hardtail frame). Condition reflects the limited use. $225 picked up, or I'll ship for an additional $50. Between the buckles securing the box, foam inserts protecting the frame and wheels, and hard shell, your bike will always arrive undamaged.
