This 3-Piece Foam Tire Insert Replaces Air - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
@thenotoriousmic: I just put a few zip ties in my bag. If I slash a tyre I zip tie the sealant covered insert to the outside. I suppose you could attach it to the frame if you didn't ride with a bag.

For sale is my 2013 Specialized Enduro Comp Large 26” in red. The is 165mm travel on the rear and 160mm on the front. It rides really well and is so fast downhill but also climbs well. Makes a great enduro race bike or trail bike. This bike made it into the Dirt 100 in 2013 https://dirtmountainbike.com/dirt-100-2015/2013-dirt-100-specialized-enduro-comp.html Size large is perfect for me and I’m 5’10”. I think it would be fine for people a bit taller and a bit shorter than this as well. Geometry in mm: Chainstays 419, Effective ST angle 75 deg, Headtube angle 66.5 deg, wheelbase 1185, BB height 350, standover 773. I’ve upgraded some bits (full spec listed below). Wheels are Hope hubs on Mavic 521’s. Tyres are now Maxxis Minion / Highroller. I’ve added a Rockshox Reverb. Gone is the long stem, replaced with a 50mm Raceface. Brakes are now XT with 203 / 180 rotors. Pedals are fairly new DMR Vaults, which are outstanding flats. The bike is in excellent condition and ready to ride or race. There are the usual cable rub marks and a few scratches plus a small dent in the underside of the downtube from a low flying rock. The original manual is supplied for the bike and the reverb. Would prefer local pickup as it's cheap and easy but can post within UK at cost, which I guess is around £40 or £50. Full spec: Frame: M5 Aluminium, 165mm travel, tapered headtube, ISCG 05 mount, 142+ dropouts, sealed cartridge pivot bearings Rear Shock: Fox Float CTD Evolution with AUTOSAG. Climb, trail, descend settings. Fork: Fox 34 Float CTD Evolution 26. Tapered steerer.

For sale is my Thomson Elite Dropper Seatpost to fit a 27.2mm seat tube. This is the best 27.2 dropper post bar none (see reviews online), the quality of this post is superb. I've only used this post three times but unfortunately have to sell as it doesn't fit my new bike. Drop: 125mm Length: 425mm Dia: 27.2mm Postage will be charged at cost, which I assume will be around £5 From Thomson website: Our cartridge-based system is designed to have the longest service life in the industry. If repair is needed it is fast, affordable, and simple. Every single component is the best available. Custom made Norglide bearing bushings, custom made Trelleborg O-Rings and seals, Thomson saddle clamps and fasteners, Motul Oil. This is the drop post good enough to be called a Thomson Elite. The Elite Dropper uses side mount actuation so we can keep all the critical dimensions of the Thomson Elite cradle, bolt, and clamp geometry. One piece forged inner post for strength and reliability, no joint to loosen and fail. Actuation is by cam, so you get smooth, variable speed and height without resorting to a complicated, damage-prone hydraulic actuator; no bleeding required. 27.2, 30.9, and 31.6 diameters available. . The 27.2 Elite Dropper features the external housing and cable installation and will let you re-build that aggressive hard tail you have been dreaming of. - The return speed is damped in the last 15mm of upward travel to be gentle on your seating area. - 4 inches/100mm or 5 inches/125mm of infinite travel. The dropper has 5mm of setback. - Overall weight is 592 grams including remote lever, housing, and cable. Our droppers pass EN fatigue and strength tests for seatpost. Lighter dropper posts do not! - Our droppers have the smallest most ergonomic remote lever available and short throw for quick height changes.
