The wife's pretty bike must find a new home, for it doesn't deserve to be stored in the basement. Someone must ride it! Used primarily to train for (and then crush) the Wilderness 101, the Obsess lived a life of gravel, mixed in with a few teeth-chattering descents (but mostly gravel). Fox Float Evolution CTD with lockout on the bars. FIT4 SLX shifters, SLX rear mech, SLX Brakes sram front mech (a 2x, oh my!) 11-36 10s cassette Pink ESI grips FSA SL-K Carbon seatpost Perhaps one of the nicest paint schemes Liv has ever done Stans Crest wheels (way lighter than the dumpster stock ones) Maybe trade for a dope small dh bike (her interests have, um, changed)

TRP's New G-Spec Trail SLC Brake - Eurobike 2018
I was wondering about this, too. I know people at eurobike won't badmouth the new stuff, but I wanted someone to really mention the difference/benefits over a slate g-spec. I guess the caliper with the cooling fins, but don't know. I have the quadiem g-specs on my jekyll and love them (even more after replacing pads after a few months). I wanted to swap out the xt 8000 on my following because the feel is too drastic of a difference (so, too, is the reach difference between XLs). Now maybe wait until they closeout the slates (though they are already gone on qbp and bti for sets; still on hawley).

Swapped out this my18 pike for a lyrik on the wife's bike. Probably had about 10 rides on it at most. She just wanted the comfort of the lyrik fork she knew and loved. Custom stikrd decals, but with a new set of black ones included. steerer tube is cut at at about 6.25" or 158mm. Was on a medium stumpjumper that has 105mm headtube. Ran about 10mm spacer and stem. 110x15 boost spacing 46mm offset $475 plus shipping via bikeflights.

The Camber is pretty much a do-it-all bike. Currently setup with a 130mm pike (120mm rear), this can tackle any XC stage race while handling the enduro days with joy. Spent more time on the TrailFox and now Jekyll. Can include a regular 60mm specialized stem if you aren't feeling the flatforce. Size XL Rockshox Pike RC, 130mm (can include 120mm shaft if you want) SRAM S-2200, carbon cranks, 30t chainring SRAM XO1 shifter and rear mech Shimano XT 11-42 cassette Hope Pro 4 hubs to WTB KOM i23 (rear has a dent that doesn't affect performance) Specialized Butcher front, Purgatory rear tire Syntace Flatforce stem, 55mm; Syntace Vector bars 780mm (amazing combo, but can put on regular 60mm stem if you prefer) FOX Float CTD Factory rear shock (serviced May 2017) XT brakes, rotors, 203/180 Specialized dropper, 125mm Shipping via bikeflights, so you can get an estimate coming from 16801.
