I don't know the exact year, but when i google it, it appears to be a 2008. Selling this one for a friend, who got it as a trade from a customer. I am a professional bike mechanic and this bike is in excellent condition. It looks like the bike has barely been ridden. There is no wear on the chain (chain checker doesn't even drop in 0.5%) and all bearings feel new. Pictures show a few scuffs on the frame and cranks, but really nothing to be worried about. I've very carefully inspected for cracks and could not find any. Bike shifts perfectly and tubes hold air. I took off the aero bar and there are a few scuffs to the handlebar, but it's all just cosmetic. Paypal fees included, but shipping is not. I will only ship insured through bike flights. Specs Frame: SL6 Carbon Fork: SL3 Carbon (I am unsure if it's full carbon, but it is likely it has an alloy steerer) Rear Derailleur: Ultegra Front Derailleur: Ultegra Shifters: Ultegra Brakes: Tektro Quartz R740 Crankset: FSA SLK Light Carbon Triple 53/39/30 175mm Chain: KMC Cassette: Shimano CS-5600 Handlebar: Forte Stem: Forte Seatpost: Carbon w/offset Saddle: yep Wheel: Mavic Aksium Race Tires: Continental Ultrasport Pedals: Included, SPD compatible on one side, platform on the other

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
@sino428: Homicides by firearms are down historically since 1993. A lot of mistakes by the local and federal agencies there to protect the citizens on this latest school shooting. Lets focus on things that will actually reduce the gun violence. So far I'm on board with firing sheriff Scott Israel, firing the cop on duty who didn't try and put a stop to the shooting, firing the backup from broward county pd who also sat there waiting for backup, raising the age to own any firearm to 21, hardening soft targets, some sort of flag on your record if you get expelled from school and want to buy a gun, and better background checks. I'm not going to punish a company because a social justice warrior at pinkbike told me to.

Rocky Mountain Recalls 2018 Altitude, Instinct, and Pipeline Models for Brake Issue
It just means they didn't give enough slack in the cables when routing from the front to rear triangle. It's a super-simple fix that takes less than a minute. Basically you can either take out all the air in the shock and check to make sure the housing does not contact the frame at any point in the rear suspension's travel or stick a socket with an outer diameter of 30-45mm between the BB and the housing and adjust the loop of housing when the suspension is at rest. Lots of bikes have an issue like this. If you own a Pivot Firebird, you might want to check that you have enough slack in your lines as well.

RockShox's New Pike - First Look
Really annoying when you have Sram at the shop and you ask them whats new and they don't know a thing, but one or two weeks later PB puts up info like this. RS-1 dropped a lot of weight, and I'm hoping I can swap out dampers to charger 2 on my old one.

Pics aren't updated yet, but I took Di2 off the bike to drop the price. This bike has about 50 miles on it. MSRP of the Pro build is $5500. I've put about $500 in upgrades on this bike including Shimano Saint Brakes, DHF 3C MaxxGrip/TR/DD tubeless front tire, and a WTB hightail pro saddle. Rides great, but I'm trying to reduce the amount of bikes I own. I have two springs for the shock and fork and will ship it with the springs of your choice. FRAME: Smoothwall Carbon. Smoothlink Design 200mm. Pipelock Bearing Pivots. PF BB107. ISCG05Tabs. Ride-4 Adjustable Equalized 27.5/26 Geometry. Di2 Ready. SIZE: Medium FORK: BOS Idylle 27.5. 200mm.

I built a bike with spare parts I have around my home. I took it for a ride today and it felt fantastic, but I want to downsize my stable. It is a mixed wheelset bike because I just like mixed wheelset bikes. I am a bike mechanic and this bike is in good condition. This bike has very little miles. The oldest part is the fork and it will need its 100 hour service if you want to keep it in pristine condition. I only used it for a few months and then put an RS1 on my other hardtail. Color: Solid Gold Bars: Whiskey Carbon Riser 740mm Stem: Ritchey Trail 45mm Headset: Chris King Navy Spacers: Chris King Navy Brakes: XTR Race M987 Rotors: 180mm (RT66M front, G2CS rear, G02A pad front, F01A rear...yeah its weird, deal with it) Brake Adapters: Shimano Front Wheel: Syntace 32h hub (can be converted to 20mm), Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes, alloy nipples, Syntace W35 Rim (28.5 mm inner/35mm outer). (there is an issue with the preload on the bearings that I will leave up to the next owner to resolve. It either needs new 61805 bearings or thinner shims, but it will not be difficult to resolve...maybe a $10-$20 fix), Maxxis DHF 3C MaxxGrip/EXO/TR 29x2.3 (about 70% life left) Rear Wheel: Chris King 32h Navy, Giant AM2 rim (stickers can be removed), Giant spokes, DT alloy nipples (28 navy, 4 gold...yeah I'm weird like that), Maxxis Ardent Race 3C MaxxSpeed/EXO/TR 27.5x2.35) Cog: Endless Kick Ass Cog 21t Black, Silver Fibbonaci Spacers (I will include the extra spacers if you need to adjust chainline) Chainring: Race Face 30T Blue Chain: Sram PC1091 (less than 0.5% wear) Crankset: Sram (I forget what it is) Bottom Bracket: Chris King Ceramic Navy Seatpost: Giant Alloy Saddle: OE WTB A few things: Oi bell not included. Pedals not included. I will fully strip down the bike and clean it before shipping. As I believe you shouldn't have to service your new-to-you bike, I will also do an oil change on the fork so you don't have to immediately service it. If you want gears, we can talk about that too, but it needs a shimano direct mount derailleur (I have the SS dropouts, just didn't when I built it). The bike weighs 27lbs with pedals. I also have the 26+ rims and tires if you want to convert this to 26+, but it's super fun the way it is. Head tube angle is roughly ~66.7 degrees.
