2022 Transition Spire Alloy XT - Large I've owned this bike for basically one year, and it has seen about 35 hours of ride time. As you can see in the photos it's in very good shape. It has been ridewrapped since day one. It has many brand new parts, the build is completely stock. The brakes have been bled, and the fork has had a lowers service. There are a couple small blemishes in the ride wrap, one on the fork lowers, one on the nds chain stay, see the last couple pictures.

What you see is what you get. Selling a frame, fork, wheels, tires, rotors, stem, bar, seatpost, saddle for the asking price. The bike started as a '21 Karate Monkey complete, and I recently swapped all the parts that I had on it to a different frame. Strava says the frame saw ~1000km, the rest of it is all pretty much unused. The wheels are set-up tubeless, and the spec on them is a WTB ST i40 TCS 32h with Novatec hubs and 27.5 x 3.0 Surly Dirt Wizard tires. I never really used these wheels, the tires have seen maybe 25km riding the 'xc' trails in Stanley Park. The saddle is a WTB Volt, it was unused. The bars/stem/seatpost were all from the stock build, and unbranded. I don't dare try to remove the Thrill decal, for fear of tearing, so you get that too. I did have a custom frame bag made for the bike, if you're interested in some bike packing, perhaps we can talk about including it for an extra $200. There is no: drivetrain, brakes, headset, or bottom bracket. There is still a crown race and a star nut installed on the fork.

For sale is my '20 Trek Top Fuel size Large with brand new unused XT drivetrain, and WTB/Raceface wheels (with rotors). I built this bike with the intention of doing BC Bike Race, but that never happened, so now it's time to move on. The bike is super fun, and much more capable than you'd expect for 'only' having 120mm. This bike was built from the frame up, so it doesn't quite land on any of the spec options, but it's probably closest to a 9.8 XT build, but a little more "Down-Country" as the kids like to say. According to Strava I have ridden this bike apx 582km, for 60 hours, I owned a Slash concurrently with the Top Fuel and ended up riding the Slash a lot more frequently. I am selling the bike as pictured. I have taken an entirely brand new XT drivetrain, and brand new unused WTB/Raceface wheels (with rotors) from my new bike and swapped them on here. I did a lowers service on the fork, and an air can service on the shock about 10 hours ago. Brakes have new pads and have been bled. The wheels will be setup tubeless with fresh sealant. Here is the complete build: Frame: Carbon main and stays, magnesium rocker, Knock Block, Large Fork: Fox Factory Step-Cast 34 Fit4 120mm Shock: Fox Performance Elite, remote lockout, 115mm Shifter: Shimano XT M8100 12-spd Derailleur: Shimano XT M8100 - NEW Cassette: Shimano XT M8100 10-51T - NEW Crank: Shimano XT M8100 175mm 32T Chainring - NEW Wheels: WTB ST Light i27 w/ Race Face Trace Hub & DT Swiss Competition spokes - NEW Brakes: Shimano XT M8100 w/ 180mm RT66 rotors F&R (Pads and Rotors are NEW) Tires: Bontrager XR4 - 29 x 2.4 - NEW Dropper: Bontrager Line Elite - 170mm Saddle: Bontrager Arvada Pro Carbon Bars: Bontrager Line Pro 35 Carbon 15mm rise - 760mm wide Stem: Bontrager Line Pro 35 - 50mm (I also have a 70mm stem that came with the frame if you want to get really XC) Grips: Ergon GE1 Evo

2021 Trek Emonda SL - 54cm This is the new version of the Emonda, with an aero front end, but still has considerations for weight at the rear. The bike has a full Ultegra hydro disc build. I built it using an Easton EC90 Aero handlebar to keep the cables concealed as much as possible. The seatmast is the 'tall' version, and the saddle is a carbon railed Bontrager Montrose Pro. The steerer is uncut. The wheels are a bit of an odd one for this bike, they are Bontrager Paradigm Elite 25 (meaning they have a 25mm internal rim width), and I'm running 32c R3 TLR tires. I am selling the bike because I really just don't ride on the road anymore. I thought maybe having a fancy new road bike would get me out on the pavement, but it didn't. Strava says I've ridden the bike 2200km, I'd estimate that under 200 of those kms were outside...this bike literally lived on my trainer. The only scratches on the bike are from an errant rear wheel insert while moving the bike from the trainer. I also once dropped the chain off the small ring, putting the bike back on the trainer. The following parts are new: -CN-HG701 11spd Chain -RT-MT800 160mm rotors front and rear -CS-R8000 11-32 cassette -Bar tape -Stan's Sealant Sizing of things: -Crank 172.5mm 50/34 -Bars 40cm -Stem 100mm -Seatmast 175mm w/ 5mm offset I have a 4iiii Left side R8000 Power Meter I can add for $350. I will sell the bike without the wheels/tires/rotors/cassette for $3200. Let me know if you have any questions... although I feel this is quite thorough.

For sale is my 2020 Slash 9.8 XT in Large with upgraded Fox Factory suspension. It’s been a great bike, that has handled everything from alpine epics to bike park to after work laps. The frame, wheels and bars are carbon. The drivetrain, as you might guess from the name, is 12 spd Shimano XT. The photos of the bike really don’t do justice to this paint, the colour is called Purple Phaze, and it transitions between shades of purple/brown/blue depending on the light. The bike was Ride Wrapped before seeing any dirt. First ride was June 2020, and I have ridden the bike about 800km according to Strava. Original spec lists can be found here: https://www.trekbikes.com/ca/en_CA/bikes/mountain-bikes/trail-mountain-bikes/slash/slash-9-8-xt/p/31093/ https://www.vitalmtb.com/product/guide/Bikes,3/Trek/Slash-9-8-XT,27376 The bike has the following upgrades over stock: - Fox Factory 36 w/ Grip 2 - Fox Float X2 with all the dials - XT 4-piston brakes - Ergon GE1 grips The bike has the following brand new parts installed: - SE5 front tire 29 x 2.6 - SE4 rear tire 29 x 2.4 - Shimano CN-M9100 XTR Chain - Shimano SM-CRM85 XT 32T Chainring - Loam Goat Brake pads front & rear The fork has just had a lowers service, the brakes have been bled, and the new parts listed above are installed. Included with sale is the original RockShox Deluxe RT3, it was never used. I also have the original grips (the Ergons are on their last legs, but I think they look and feel way better). There are some dings on the bike, as one might expect with a used mountain bike, and I’ve tried to highlight them in the later photos. There are a few scrapes on the side of the fork lowers (stanchions are 100% clean), there are a couple scratches on the handlebar and one brake lever, and there was once a rock stuck in between the chainstay/swingarm and the seattube that left a mark. None of these scrapes affect the integrity of the bike in any way. Will ship at buyers expense.

Bontrager XXX Carbon Handlebar Had this on my road bike for a bit, but have since switched to an aero bar. Silly light, and very comfy. Has ports to run Di2 bar end junction box. 31.8mm clamp, 42cm C-C, 100mm reach, 124mm drop. https://www.trekbikes.com/ca/en_CA/equipment/cycling-components/bike-handlebars-accessories/bike-handlebars/road-bike-handlebars/bontrager-xxx-vr-c-road-handlebar/p/593850/
