On One Fatty V2 X01

$750 GBP
on one fatty v2 size medium (im 6ft1 and its just ok, anyone shorter it would be perfect), full rigid model, top spec with sram guide rsc brakes with uberbike race matrix pads, sram x01 drivetrain with upgraded ceramic bb, upgraded wheels with drilled rims and 54t rear hub and (lightest fat tyres available) kenda juggernaut 4.0 tyres along with the original on one floaters, carbon fork and bar, 125mm reverb, wtb saddle, specialized 60mm stem. Also includes a second wheelset with the standard 24t hubs and 29er rims, which enable touring or road tyres to fit to add versatility,they have a xt 11-42 cassette and ice tec rotors fitted (only rear currently fitted, needs rotor bolts for the front) it will come with 700x42c continental touring tyres and on one 29er chunky monkey/smorgasbord trail tyres. no grips or pedals included, price is plus postage but including paypal fees. this is a used bike and as such has the usual cable rub and small marks here and there, overall id give it a 8/10 condition for a 2.5 year old bike, the only real issue is the reverb needs a bleed/service. with the juggernauts on its around 28lbs in weight, making it one of the lightest non carbon fat bikes around, and it was designed as a trail fatbike, meaning a longer wheelbase and slacker head angle, making it much more capable as an all round bike. paypal or cash on collection from lancashire only.

Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
erm, ive got a bike that has 26x4 tyres on one wheelset but 29x2.4 on another, with 32x700c ice spike cx tyres and 42c touring tyres as options, and with a 3rd wheelset would be able to take 3.2 650bs. the only place im struggling is the mx tyres lol

2017 Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year Nominees
@brianpark: ok so why didnt specialized make it a 170mm drop with it? oh thats right because their frames seat tubes are still stuck in the 00s, and its a band aid for a problem they are causing by not lopping 2 inch off and speccing a 170+ dropper. im not disputing it has some merits, but shit like this where you can already get a bigger drop is not innovative in my mind, whereas if it was a 170 drop to give 205 effective and theyd reduced their seat tubes by 2 or 3 inches across the range, that would be because itd make the seat dissapear, not still in the way at a slightly better angle.

@Pedro404: thats fine, but a 170mm dropper with corresponding seat tube length would mean even more room...

Niner Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy with Pending Sale to Colorado Investment Group
@Airfreak: so moving parts = worth more? thats wierd logic, and no, but why doesnt every supercar use the same running gear? again, theres pretty much no 'standards' on motor vehicles and thats not a problem, if you get a new car you buy stuff to fit that instead of your old model, but if you have to do that with bikes suddenly its an issue? i just dont get it. and a 10k dirt bike in relative levels of performance is like a 200 quid mtb, i.e. right at the bottom end. its like saying for your 250k rolls royce you can buy a plane. its a cessna, not a f16, but you can buy it for the same money as a car so surely its better value because its more complex? not at all. compare the costs at the top end of other areas and mtbs are still cheap to some degree, cars can cost millions, motorbikes half a mil, planes billions, ships 10s of billions. yes you can get a much cheaper one of each, but you can get a much cheaper mtb. again, comparing the top of one area to the bottom of another the other will always look favourable, otherwise you wouldnt be making the comparison. how about air rifles? can spend 2500 on an air rifle with about 3 moving parts, mtbs are suddenly looking cheap. anyone can make comparisons with anything, but unless you compare the same relative level (top end, mid range, low end etc) its a rediculous argument to use because your not comparing like for like.

@Airfreak: why is it? oh thats right, one is a beatifully engineered machine with a 96% efficient drivetrain, and the others a crude oil burning piece of shit.
