This is a Trail / All Mountain wide range 1 x 10 speed 29er, with 130mm travel in the back and 140mm in the front. It has geometry designed for traction on climbs, and a mix of stability and nimbleness in all situations. It is plush and fast, with powerful brakes, stiff wheels and bulletproof components. It needs nothing to slay your favourite trails, uphill or down. This bike is perfect for technical trails like Kanata Lakes, faster trails like LaRose Forest, and steep downhill ski hill trails like Fortune and Mt Saint Marie. I have also enjoyed riding it on the Hydro Cut in Kitchener and Kingdom Trails in Vermont. Upgrades / Component Swaps Fork: X-Fusion Trace RL2 140mm travel, 34mm stanchions (comes with new, unused set of replacement lowers and matching axle - see my other ads) Shock: Fox Float CTD Factory Series w.

Purchased new. Has been unpackaged and threaded into fork lowers but has never held a wheel or been used for riding. This axle fits the X fusion Trace 29er fork lowers that I am selling in another listing. Just a heads up that this axle has the wrong thread pitch for my older (2013/2014) X fusion Trace lowers.

Compatible with X fusion Trace, 34mm stanchion, 140mm travel 29er fork. Purchased brand new from x fusion canada. Installed on my x fusion fork and then removed again because i needed to buy the matching axle. By the time the axle arrived I no longer needed the lowers. Some chips in the external enamel finish around the holes where the fork internals bolt on. Some leftover grease on the seals.

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
I think Cross Country (or perhaps Trail) and downhill is enough categories. Cross country for bikes that you can climb on and downhill for bikes that aren't designed for climbing at all. Realistically everything else is relatively small nuance (+/- 30%) in geometry / suspension / tire width reflecting resulting in relative strengths and weaknesses in climbing / descending and suitability for the topography Categorization is related to marketing and so I am not surprised that Pinkbike is interested in collecting our thoughts to feed back to manufacturers. The proliferation of categories in "Mountain Biking" might mask a lack of true innovation (as opposed to gradual improvement). It may be that retailers are concerned about category fatigue?
