Hope Pro 4 XD SRAM Driver Freehub

$55 USD
Used about a year on a spare wheelset, but then I used that wheelset to build a second bike. I got a great deal on a Shimano drivetrain, so I swapped to the Shimano freehub and don't need this one.

FOX DPX2 Factory 7.875 x 2.25 (200x57) New Take Off

$365 USD
This was removed from a brand new 2018 Santa Cruz Bronson frame. I removed the shock as soon as I unpacked the frame, because I already have another shock that I'm going to use for the build. I literally touched this one time when I unbolted it and took pictures of it. It has never been compressed, I don't even know how much air pressure is in it. Includes the mounting hardware shown and Fox owner's guide.

Field Test: Trance vs Sensor vs Habit vs SB130
@allenfstar: Most pressfits might be ok, but they are still a hassle to work with. Pressing bearings, loctite, etc. compared to a socket and ratchet. And time has proven threaded is a better design, and it doesn’t have to be a compromise for the frame designer. There are many great frames out there with threaded. Say what you want about Specialized (I’m not really a fan, never had one and not sure if I ever would) but the fact that the Stumpjumper now has a threaded bb and non-proprietary shock says something. They obviously thought those things were important enough to influence their design. High end brands especially should be called out more for this. If you spend almost $4000 on a frame, you shouldn’t have to then spend more on aftermarket products to address the issues you might have with the bb.

It would be interesting if the aspects of the bike that come into play while actually owning it were also considered. It’s great to have a review of how the bike rides and handles for a few weeks or months. But what about how easy it is to live with for a few years? I’m not saying it should be the main factor when reviewing a bike, but maybe just some more notes on some of the design choices the manufacturer made, and maybe have them weigh on the overall score a little. Does it have a press fit bb? How difficult is the internal cable routing (although most brands have this mostly sorted)? How difficult/expensive is it to change linkage bearings? And special tools needed for anything? Proprietary stuff? Weird bars/grips (Pivot)? Water bottle location? Oh wait, that’s covered. Maybe most people only keep a bike for a year or two, or don’t ride enough in the time they do have a bike to require addressing things like bearings. Or maybe they just pay a shop to do everything. But for the enthusiasts that do, more info about those things would be appreciated.

Consortium to Buy Amer Sports for 5.2 Billion
@canadianenduro: I have their Agent wheelset and it has been great, I can’t recommend We Are One enough. Hand made in Canada, with no filler or sanding to hide anything, just a really great product right out of the mold, made by great people.

Review: Shimano XT Flat Pedals
I think Burgtec has the best pin design. Can always be removed using only a hex key, regardless of damage. Similar to Hope, but much more grip than Hope.

DT Swiss RWS Plug In 148x12mm Thru Axle

$25 USD
DT Swiss RWS Plug In 148x12mm Boost axle with ability to remove the handle. Lightly used, but still excellent condition. This fit a 2nd gen Santa Cruz 5010, and will probably fit the rest of the Santa Cruz line (with boost). Verify other brands/models before buying.
