Qualifying Results - Lourdes DH World Cup 2017
Clearly 29ers have future in Downhill, but for that to mean they will be the only wheel size is quite a stretch. I was sad to see 26 go, but understand 27.5 replaced it as the fun flickable wheel size. 29 may become the "fast" size but will never be more flickable and quick handling. I am fine with that because in most people's case we slowing down our bikes, not the other way around.

Hi Everyone, I am selling a pristine and pampered 2014 YETI SB66c (Medium) with about a season and a half and less than 500 miles of use. In december I upgraded many parts with the upcoming season in mind but my wife got me a 2016 SB6c as a surprise gift so an unexpected change of plans forces the sale. To be candid, I like the SB66c as much as the SB6c if not better, but can’t really reject such a nice gift from my wife and the new bike is also pretty nice and kind of similar. I have always preferred the 26” wheel size but I am sure I’ll eventually adapt. The bike is a top spec build throughout and many of the parts were installed early this year and only saw 4 rides since then. A few parts, like the brakes, saddle and grips are brand new and never been used as they were swapped new form the 2016 SB6c. Below I will list the specs and the date when I purchased the recent upgrades. If needed, I can search for receipts on many of the parts I got in December and installed earlier this year. All the photos are of the bike as it is today with the exception of the last three that I took before swapping the brakes, saddle and grips with the new bike. I am asking $2,900 + Shipping for a quick sale as the bike is in paid conditioned storage and don’t want to keep paying for too long. Will entertain offers but unlikely to lower it much. - 2014 Medium SB66c (not one scratch and never crashed or fallen) - Invisiframe frame protection professionally installed with no bubbles at all (Matte finish) - Fox Talas 36 1600mm with 20MM through Axle - Cane Creek 110 Series Inset Head Set. - Fox Float X CTD (Purchased in August 2015) - e13 TRS+ Wheel set (Purchased in December 2015) - Schwalbe Magic Mary Trailstar 2.35 Tubeless (Purchased in December 2015) - Schwalbe Razor Rock Trailstar 2.35 Tubeless (Purchased in December 2015) - Shimano XTR Crankset with One Up 30t Ring (Purchased in December 2015) - Shimano XTR Bottom Bracket (Purchased in December 2015) - Shimano XTR Real derailleur with One Up extended Cage (1x) (Purchased in 2015) - Shimano XTR Shifter (1x) - Shimano XTR Chain - Shimano XT 11-36 cassette with One up 42t Conversion (1x) (Purchased in 2015) - e13 TRS+ Chain guide - KS Lev Dropper Post - KS Lev Southpaw remote lever (Purchased in Dec 2015) - ENVE RSR Carbon handlebars - Race Face 45mm Respond stem - SRAM Guide R brakes (Brand new) - YETI WTB Volt Custom (Brand New) - YETI Lock-On grips (Brand New)

Video: Vanderham and Shandro go Chasing Trails in Chile
By Chilean summer, I should be riding that dirt and breathing that crisp dry Chilean air. I can't wait to be in Nevados de Chilean!! For now, the east coast of the US will have to do.

Andes Pacifico Enduro: Day One - Anti Grip, We Meet Again
Great photos, but the landscape sure helps. By the way, this race was not the one that was part of the EWS last year, that was further south near Neavados de Chillan, a more traditional "alpine type" geography. I think the Andes Pacifico is a much longer and difficult race than what EWS normally hosts and that might turn out to be better. I look at this race as a stand alone event that may turn to be one of the most challenging Enduro events in the world, sort of a Dakar race for Mountain Biking. I do hope EWS brings back Nevados de Chillan to the 2016 calendar. So many of the riders called it the best race of 2014 and I think it should be a fixture in the EWS calendar.

Applications Open for Andes Pacifico 2015
mtbswindler , I don't know if you have seen the photos and videos of the inaugural Andes Pacifico, but the organization had an impressive setup with an Sky resort as the starting point, very nice tent camps with great services, several choppers, motorcycle patrolling etc. A lot of the europeans said it was a world class level and beyond. In fact, it is organized by the same guys that did the Chilean World Enduro Series race. Also, keep in mind that Chile is an expensive country with standards of a developed economy, in fact it has lower crime and poverty levels than the US.

OneUp Components RAD Cage - Review
I got one if the first RAD Cages to go up for sale and installed it at the same time as my 16-42 cogs, a RF 30 front narrow wide, an XTR rear Deraileur and a XTR shifter on my YETI SB66c. I had never installed with a drivetrain or adjusted my gears to any degree, but with a little help from YouTube and a book, I was able to install and adjust my new drivetrain and have it work to perfection. It shifts smooth and precisely and does not rub, stick or drag. I could not be happier to have dropped redundant or unnecessary gear while also reducing weight and complications. This system has worked flawlessly so far. I do wish the offered other colors as green can be a bi limiting and not everyone wants to go with black.
