28 Bikes of BC Bike Race
I just completed the race on a 2018 Transition Scout (150 F/ 130 R), over built with TRP Quadium brakes, Bontrager XR4 Front/ DHF and DHR2 Rear (after puncturing the DHF). I'm a regular guy who had an absolute blast on the setup. Sure, a lighter bike with faster rolling tires would have made climbing a bit more enjoyable, but holy crap the downhills were fun. I ended up 148 overall with this setup. Even if riding on a rig referenced like the ones above shaved off 30 spots, who really cares??? I wouldn't have changed a thing, the downhills great knowing I could plow through anything I wanted.

Ask Pinkbike: Coil Shocks on Trail Bikes, Changing Fork Travel, and Drivetrain Upgrades
I have the same bike, had the DPX2 send to Avalanche and it feels like a brand new bike. I didn't really love the small bump compliance on the stock tune. The difference was really amazing.

2016 Large Transition Scout frame with Dvo Topaz shock. Frame bearings were replaced with enduro bearings on 8/25/17. The Topaz honestly was a great upgrade. I was looking for a bit more mid stroke support, and also found that the stock shock would heat up on 4+minute descents. I'm a 200 rider with gear. You can add volume spacers trail side with that shock, and also adjust the psi in the piggy back to change riding characteristics. I'd be happy to help with base settings if u like. The shock was new and installed in April 2017. Here is a link to the Pinkbike review of the Topaz: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/dvo-topaz-t3-air-shock-review-2017.html . I still have the stock shock and could throw it back on the bike and knock $250 off if interested. Im replacing this bike with an XL Scout. Rides great, just a bit too small. I'm 6"2with monkey arms and just want to be a little more stretched out. Please let me know if u have any questions or would like any different pics. No dents, just a couple of scratches and paint chips, but really in great shape. Sorry, the bottom bracket and chain guide aren't included, just waiting for my tool to come in the mail.

Purchased new in 2015, rear shock was Pushed last spring for agressive trail riding for 195 lbs. They installed a bumper in the shock to prevent 27.5 wheels from rubbing. The frame has a brand new set of bearings installed. I took pictures of the frame blemishes. Fair amount of chain shall. Also, I file of the front derailleur cable stop so 27.5 wheels would fit, so u gotta run a 1X. There is some paint wear from the rear tire before Push Industries installed the shock bumper. The rear through axle and Santa Cruz grease gun is not pictured but included. Thanks for looking!

Brand new POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Pads, size XL. I bought them on Amazon from a seller who is going out of business and doesn't accept returns, and they are too big for me. $75 shipped.
