Here's My Zerode Taniwha Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
If you break it, (assuming you'll break it (please break it!)) how do you go about fixing it?

It's been a hell of a project to put this thing together, but it's time for a new one (open to suggestions). New, this bike would cost $11K!! I am very particular when it comes to how my bike rides, and this is the best bike I've ever ridden. It started as a 2016, but have made upgrades and replaced parts throughout 2017. I live in the mountains, so the riding season is April-October. It's a dry climate, so parts are not affected as they are in the wet. It's been ridden only a handful of times since major service on 9/2/17. Here's a rundown: 2016 Carbon Patrol Medium 2017 Custom Push Elevensix shock (Valve 1 is tuned for DH. Valve 2 is tuned for Trail.) 2017 Fox Factory 36 160mm FIT HSC/LSC 20mm Axle (Rebuilt 9/11/17) 2016 Enve M70 HV wheels w/DT Swiss 240 hubs (Lifetime crash replacement for second owner) 2016 Cane Creek 110 headset 2016 Thomson X4 50mm stem 2016 Enve Minnaar Bar2 (cut to 798mm) 2016 Sram Guide RSC Brakes (200mm front, 180mm rear, Pads installed 9/12/17) 2016 Sram XO1 Shifter (New Cables and Housing installed 2/25/18) 2016 Race Face Turbine dropper post w/anodized blue lever 2016 Race Face Sixc Cranks 170mm (Bottom Bracket and Spindle replaced 8/24/17, 32t DM Chainring installed 9/2/17) 2016 WTB Pure Saddle 2016 Sram XO1 11-Speed Rear Derailleur 2017 Sram XG-1195 Dome Cassette (XO1) (Installed 9/2/17) 2017 Sram XX1 11-Speed Chain (Installed 9/2/17) 2017 Maxxis Minion DHF 3C MaxxTerra 2.5 WT tires (front and rear replaced on 9/2/17) All Frame bearings were replaced with Enduro Max bearings on 9/2/17 The bike is in great shape. It's the perfect blend of playfulness and capability. I've ridden it on 6 hour XC rides and Dirt Merchant laps. It has not been raced or ridden DH. Reasonable offers only please. If you have specific part that you don't require, I'll consider removing it for a discount. I won't part it out though. I hope the winter weather is treating everyone well.

This frame is in great condition! It was built up and ridden 8 times. It was never crashed. It includes extra derailleur hanger and adjustable angle Syncros headsets. There is some minor wear on the non-drive seat stay and there are a handful of small chips in the paint. Other than that, it's cherry.

All 8 bearing were replaced with Enduro Max bearings on 5/28/17 and it hasn't been ridden since. The frame isn't perfect. There's a large scratch on the top tube. This happened while boxed up during a flight. There's also wear on the non-drive stays (apparently, I pull my heels in...). The Frame is from 2015, but the DHX2 was added in 2016. It has a 400lb SLS spring. It has a Shimano BB and Cane Creek headset installed. I will leave these in if you prefer.
