Cannondale Jekyll 2, 27.5, Stans Carbon Wheels, XL

$2199 USD
Up for sale is a bike that hasn't been ridden since April 2019. (Collar bone break, surgery, new Trance 29, and new 2020 Enduro). Can also swap out some of the purple if that isn't your jam. This thing rips and wants to fly, both through the air and on the trail. The Gemini system (hustle/flow modes) changes travel from 165 down to 130, but leaves your compression settings the same. So it can definitely be an all-day ripper and handle any track. I was always surprised how fun it was to ride on more mellow, flat trails that XC stage races cover. It also loves gnarly tracks at Snowshoe and can eat all the rocks you throw at it. Had fork and rear shock serviced in Feb 2019 and probably have 50 miles on it. I did replace clapped out shifty bits with new stuff from the Enduro, so maybe 10 miles on that stuff. New rotors, too. Ditched Guide brakes for TRP Quadiems, which was amazing. Power for days, and all the modulation, but mineral oil and shimano-style bleeding. 495mm reach on XL Carbon front triangle, alu rear. Fox Float 36 Performance Elite, 27.5, 170mm, Fit 4, 3-pos Adj., 110x15, tapered steerer, 44mm offset Fox Float X Performance Elite EVOL w/ Gemini remote-actuated dual mode air spring system, Flow Mode - 165mm / Hustle Mode - 130mm 3-Pos lever Fabric Scoop Shallow Elite with Cromoly rails Stans Arch cb7 carbon wheels Maxxis Minion DHF 27.5x2.5" front, DHR II 2.4" rear, 3C Compound, EXO puncture protection, folding , Tubeless Ready Truvativ Descendant Carbon Eagle, BB30 150mm Raceface Turbine R (basically Fox Transfer) Dropper post New GX cassette 10-50, New GX Chain New NX Shifter New SRAM 200/180mm rotors TRP G-Spec Quadiem brakes Buyer pays shipping via bikeflights and paypal fees

RockShox Super Deluxe RCT 165x45 Trunnion

$125 USD
Great little shock from an Evil Following MB. I also put it on my XL Giant Trance Advanced 29 for a bit to get more travel (maybe 122 instead of the 115 the 42.5 gives you). After finding a crack the frame in a crash, I returned to the DPX2 for color match purposes. Selling to build up a dj bike. Trunnion mount, 165x45mm. $10 shipping

Oh, and reading a review of the reign 29 here (https://www.singletracks.com/mtb-reviews/2020-giant-reign-29er-a-whistler-test-ride-review/), the reviewer suggested sizing up if you think you are between. That is also what I figured since my tt length has remained fairly constant and comfortable over the last few years, but sta and thus reach has increased. S5 enduro was super comfortable to pedal and hit on the trails. I think just a smidge more hinge or lower of the bars would help offset weird feels, plus more time on the bike.

Same. I have one ride on an s5 specialized enduro (511 reach), and you can definitely feel it is long. But I grew used to 495 on my jekyll, though it took some time. Sadly I broke my collarbone in late June, had surgery in July, and was slow to recover and ride my trail bike lightly between. It was only at the end of my ride that I felt I could get the big boy airborne, but like this review noted early, it was just body positioning. I would love to try a size smaller to compare, but I am unsure. For both the Enduro and the Reign 29, I could go with the "large" size to be closer to what I ride now, or the XL to get more of a sled feel.

Interview: What It Will Take To Win Rampage This Year According to Judges Randy Spangler & Josh Bender
@salespunk: The most jackass thing was then he challenged people who thought it was getting easier to come ride it, right after he said it was way easier now. I don't really care how much shit they've gotten from Brendan's run last year (I thought others were also robbed), he comes off as an ass.

Interview: George Brannigan on Breaking His Collarbone 4 Times in 12 Months
Damn, I had hard enough time with my collarbone. Didn't have surgery because two fractures looked like his (good enough to heal inline), but at 3 week follow up it was hella displaced. So 4 weeks post-break I had surgery (plate and 13 screws). And muscles were slow to recover then even after I was cleared to ride some. Which makes it even nuttier that someone was at Joyride 4 weeks post break/surgery. But that mental toughness is to be respected.

@lognar: I do, quite a bit, but sometimes when you reload the shit sneaks in down the feed and you don't see it. Shit happens.
