2017 Small Stumpjumper Comp Carbon Bike is in excellent condition with barely any marks on the frame. Stock 2017 model with several upgrades: - 160mm air spring in the Pike. At the same time a service on the air spring side and lowers was done. - 150mm Reverb B2 (latest version with all the upgrades). The quick-connect hose was swapped for a standard hose to allow the post to be fully inserted in the frame. - 1x Reverb lever. Better ergonomics. - 740mm 31.8 Next SL carbon bar. Works well for lighter riders. - New Guide RSC brake levers, recently replaced 180mm rotors and metallic pads. Full bleed at the time of service. - Maxxis Minion DHF MaxxGrip 2.5 WT up front, DHR MaxxTerra 2.4 WT in the rear. Both tires set up tubeless. Front tire is nearly new, rear is at 85% new with no cuts or tire plugs anywhere. All the frame bearings have been recently checked and serviced if they required it. Rear hub bearings are new and the front ones have been cleaned and re-packed with fresh grease. The chain and chainring have recently been replaced with very low kms on both. The shift housing and cable was recently replaced as well. This bike needs absolutely nothing fixed or serviced and is ready for a winter of riding. Great bike for a small rider (5'5" or shorter) in the sea to sky area.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
There's quite a few reasons why manufacturers don't wrap frames from the factory but I'll give you a few: - Shipping containers that exceed temperatures of 60*c during transport cause material deformation and defects. - Paint off-gassing causing a reaction with material adhered to it. - Long term effects of glue interacting with paint, leading to possible warranty scenarios. - Discoloration of the wrap material overtime as it gets sun-affected The list goes on. I applaud companies like RideWrap offering a high-end solution to protecting frames. We have staff in our office that have gotten their personal bikes wrapped and they look great. However, due to a myriad of known and unknown issues with adhering copious amounts of 3M or off-branded protective tape to bicycle frames, we're happy to let RideWrap provide this particular service.

Gully Explores Route 16 with BC Bike Ride North - Video
I hit all the same destinations the week after, camping along the way. The fuel / food costs to drive there from Vancouver (need a truck when you're there) and ride for a week weren't insignificant. Adding guiding (with first aid knowledge...), transportation to and between locations, shuttling wear and tear, having staff cook, clean and attend to you, etc so you literally have to do nothing but ride is where the rest of the cost comes from. The logistics alone were very time consuming.

Rocky Mountain Instinct Carbon 90 BC Edition - Review
The early sample that Pinkbike received was sent without protectors but rest assured that the new Instinct comes with protectors on the seatstay, chainstay, and downtube.

Mountain Bike Hall of Fame 2017 Nominees
Wade is already in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. Bender certainly deserves to be in there along side him and the other pioneers of our sport.
