YT Tues CF Pro

$2500 USD
Selling my YT Tues CF Pro, because I am no longer able to put it to good use. The first season (2016) I had it, I put 12 days on it, 10 at Winter Park, and two at Angel Fire. The following season saw about 5-7 days at Winter Park. The bike has sat since then. I was unable to ride last year, and don't see myself being able to get up to the mountains enough this year to justify keeping it. I purchased the bike new in from YT, and removed the BOS suspension, and replaced it with Fox before fully assembling the bike. At this time, I also replaced the tires with Schwalbe Magic Mary Super Gravity. These are not a true DH tire, but are more than adequate for Winter Park. The current tires are the same ones I installed years ago. The rear is definitely approaching the end of its life, but could maybe have a few days squeezed out of it. The parts I've changed/added: Fox 40 RC2 Fox Float X2 Crank Brothers Mallet DH. (These are included if you want them) Grips, Bar, Stem (Spank stem, Raceface Atlas bar, Ruffian knock-offs) GX Rear Derailer. I have the original X0, but the knuckle is broken. I have not gotten around to ordering and installing the $20 piece. But I will include it with the bike. Tires. Marsh Guard. The good: It's in overall great shape. I've included photos of most of the large scratches, including the area on the top tube where my knee pads made contact, and the area where my heel rubbed the chain stay. The rear shock was just rebuilt by Dirtlabs this month. I have paper work to prove this. So you're basically getting an almost brand new rear shock. Both brake levers have been warrantied. I don't have the paper work to prove this unfortunately, but you'll also be getting semi-new brakes. The bad: The rear wheel probably only has another 1-2 seasons in it. It has a few flat spots, but nothing major. Holds tubeless just fine. The fork could probably use a rebuild soon. The tires aren't true DH. If you frequent Keystone/Angel Fire, you'll definitely want to replace both. I hate to see this go, but I feel that someone with the time to go to the mountains on a regular basis will enjoy it much more than I will. Let me know if you have any questions, or want pictures of anything in particular. I'd be happy to upload more.

Red Bull Rampage General Admission ticket

$60 USD
I have one Rampage General Admission ticket. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I won't be able to attend. I'm hoping to get some of that money back. Thanks, Connor

Spotted: New Shimano XTR
How nice of Matt Delorme to remove his watermark from these for you guys. Same camera, lens, date, etc...

Hunt Launches Range Of MTB Wheelsets
I like that they claim 6069 is 70% stronger, like they are claiming their rims are stronger than others. Stans, e13, Raceface, and many others are the same material. Or maybe I read too far into it.

Sick!! Nice to see PODs that aren't just riding. Riding bikes is a diverse experience that has so much to do with what happens off the bike...

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
@polebicycles: Perfect, thank you!! And for those that don't understand why tensile (pulling) strength is relevant, an isotropic material has identical properties in both compression and tension, assuming buckling does not occur. so a 1" diameter aluminum rod that is twice as strong in tension, is also twice as strong in compression. It's the easiest way engineers can quantify the general yield strength of a material in a way that is not geometry dependent.

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
@polebicycles: Curious why you're talking about hardness, and not the more important mechanical properties like Kic, tensile strength, and modulus.

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
@Brightside: It's going to be a similar epoxy to what is used as the matrix material in a composite frame. It's not biodegradable, and not really recycleable. But if you dump an aluminum frame into a molten pot, it will burn off. on a composite bike frame, roughly 50% of the weight of the frame is the epoxy matrix. The epoxy might make up 1% of the weight of this frame if they're very liberal with its application.

@Gregorysmithj1: I would argue the opposite, I see cracked carbon frames on a daily basis, but aluminum frames almost never crack/fail. Perhaps that's the dependent on the quantity of both being sold. But one could argue that either way if provided with the appropriate data, however I highly doubt any company will release their warranty data to the public. Aluminum frames are hand welded. Almost no machines are used in the assembly/welding of a bicycle (head tubes, BB shells, drop outs, etc... are obviously machined, forged, or turned on their respective machine), whether that be aluminum or carbon. There could possibly be a few more jobs involved with hand laying a composite bicycle frame, but the additional energy usage (huge electric ovens to cure the epoxy, with production rates as low as 1 frame per day) are massive compared to aluminum. But this is mixing worker's rights into a discussion of environmental impact... Don't get me wrong, I hate e-mtb on so many levels. But carbon is comparably bad. The only place e-bikes belong is as a car supplement and/or replacement where they can actually do some good.
