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.

MSRP of the Pro build is $5500. I've put about $2000 in upgrades on this bike including a DHF 3C MaxxGrip/TR/DD tubeless front tire, Shimano XTR Di2 with XT 11-40T cassette, a WTB hightail pro saddle, and Shimano Saint brakes. Rides great, but if you check my other ads, you'll see I'm just 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. Bike will include the Di2 charger.

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. Just so you know at the time of posting, this bike has 1 ride, and many parts including the frame, rear hub, rear tire, bb, chainring, headset were brand new. There's nothing quite like the sound of fresh king hub, so you're gonna be stoked if you've never owned one! 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 Silverado Race off my RM 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. I do have the matching King navy front hub if you want to buy it or pay me extra to lace it to the W35 with new spokes if needed. If you want gears, we can talk about that too, but it needs a shimano direct mount derailleur (I'm just using the sram X0 for a tensioner to be rediculous and my coworker gave out my bike box without emptying it and I don't have the SS dropouts). 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.

Day One Randoms - Taipei Show 2016
I've been on 29+ for 2 years waiting on a less-xc front tire. Finally someone shows us some love.
