Pinkbike Poll: What Factors Influence Your Bike Purchasing Decisions?
@onawalk: Haha, I’m just hoping my 135lb rider weight is light enough to prevent a blown shock, we shall see. I also hope the new Float X is better at handling side loads.

Pinkbike Poll: What Factors Influence Your Bike Purchasing Decisions?
@onawalk: hmm, really good solution, I didn’t think of that. I did try to install some sort of fender much like the forbidden bikes but wasn’t able to get it to not rub. I see your solution was swapping to a Horst link, which was coincidentally my solution as well (SJ evo)

Pinkbike Poll: What Factors Influence Your Bike Purchasing Decisions?
As above, all of these things. However, recent experiences with an SB130 have put reliability and serviceability at the top of my list. The wet season in NorCal (I know not joking) DESTROYED my bearings and SI unit. In my personal opinion, I think the SI design (with regards to durability) is flawed as it places a sensitive suspension component right in the firing line of a ton of debris. I tried to stay on top of cleaning lubing etc of the unit but just got sick and tired of removing both wheels, undoing the main pivot, cleaning the unit entirely, then reassembling. Call me soft but even at its fastest an SI unit clean took me 15 minutes, which is way too long to spend after each ride. Not to mention the three sets of bearings I blew through in 18 months. Yetis ride nice, but just not for me

Check Out: A Tiny Electric Pump, Sunglasses, Ergonomic Grips, & More
I like that pump as a replacement for CO2. Sure it’s a compromise with regards to battery life, but not having to waste CO2 cartridges every time you get a flat would be cool. If I wasn’t on the OneUp pump train in the SWAT box, I’d think about that pump.

Bike Check: Rae Morrison's Unreleased Liv Intrigue LT
Wow! Giant/Liv bikes usually don’t tickle my fancy but this has a beautiful straight top tube! The SRAMano drivetrain really is the icing on the cake, it must shift so smooth.

Opinion: Five Things The Bike Industry Could Do Better
Agreed! I was taking a look at the SC sale and noticed that the XO1 AXS RSV Nomad 6 has a GX cassette and chain! What a dick move, honestly. Calling it XO1 without actually having a full xo1 drivetrain. Even the AXS controller was downgraded to GX!

Yeti SB130LR Size S

$3350 USD
Size S Yeti SB130 from 2021. It started as a C2 build but I made changes to better suit my needs. All bearings were very recently replaced (read: one ride on all bearings), including the bottom bracket. The fork lowers and seals were serviced prior to listing, including a clean/lube of the air spring. The Grip2 damper is also pretty fresh and only has a few hundred miles on it. However, the SI unit will need replacing within the next few months as it is showing patterns of wear. I also installed new MTX ceramic brake pads. The frame does have paint chips and scratches from wear and tear as a daily driver. Two rides after I purchased this bike, the right stanchion leg took a pretty big rock strike. I cleaned up the strike to remove any burrs and filled it cavity using the SendHit Stanchion Repair Kit. After many lowers services, I noted minimal bushing damage, no bushing play, and no leaking oil (even when stored hanging vertically). Also available for this bike is a PUSH 11-6 with 350 pound spring. Inquire within if interested. Shock: Fox Float DPX2 210x55mm Fork: Fox 36 Performance upgraded to Grip2 damper Headset: Cane Creek Handlebar: Raceface alloy, 35mm bore, 750mm width Stem: Raceface 50mm Grips: ODI Elite Pro Brakes: Shimano XT (right lever replaced with XTR) Rotors: Shimano 200mm front/180mm rear Shifter/Derailleur: SRAM XO1 (shifter has PNW shifty lever) Cranks: SRAM GX alloy Chainring: SRAM 32T XO1 (0 miles) Chain: SRAM XO1 (less than 0.5 on wear indicator) Cassette: SRAM GX Eagle 10-52T (3 months use) Front wheel: DT Swiss XM1900 Rear Wheel: Stan’s Mk4 Flow laced to 32H Industry Nine Hydra hub Front Tire: Maxxis Assegai 3C MaxxTerra Exo+ Rear Tire: Maxxis DHR2 3C MaxxTerra Exo+ (current in photo has a massive plug in it, will replace with brand new identical DHR2 prior to shipping) Saddle: Specialized Bridge Comp 155mm Ti rails Dropper: PNW Loam 170mm drop with BikeYoke Triggy lever Misc: OneUp threaded steerer with OilSlick top cap and bottom bung plug STFU chain silencer SI Grease Gun and leftover SI unit replacement bearings included with sale RideWrap essential’d the bike and then added some 3M tape to the other high wear areas

The Ibis DV9 Hardtail is Back
Bent top tube…I get increased stand over but at the extreme costs of aesthetics. Call me vain but I can’t buy a bike with a bent top tube. Went with the SJ evo over the Bronson for that reason alone

Is no one going to mention Dario and his sudden appearance on the PB article scene? Mad kudos to Dario for the high quality entertaining and well written articles.
