Fox 36 factory 160 fit4 Boost 29 / 27.5 + kashima

$780 GBP
As title says, Brand new with uncut steerer, never even left the bag and box. Axle is 15x110mm boost size, 160mm travel but this can be adjusted with an air shaft swap. Retail for £1059 so good chunk off for brand new forks.

Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
Looking at the slow motion video it looks like the pawls engage in order, so when as described the second third and fourth pawl engage it will be one sided, for example if 3 pawls engage then it's the 3 all on the same side so would be an uneven load, would it not of been better to have them engage as opposites to more evenly distribute the load as the extra pawls engage? Or is the flex great enough that all 6 pawls will engage to evenly distribute it?

Marzocchi 350 CR fork 160mm 650b 27.5” 15mm axle

$180 GBP
As the title says, they had upgraded SKF seals at the last service. They haven’t been used for over a year as I got new forks and had other plans for these but that has changed now. They are in prefect working order, all adjustments work and they feel smooth, the stancions do however have some early signs of wear from the bushings, a routine service with fresh bushes is all that is needed to stop it getting worse. it is only cosmetic on the coating and barely noticeable, just some faint lines on the lower of the stancions I have pictured the best I can, but it's hard to show with the reflections. They have had helitape on since new so the lowers look great, only marks are at the very bottom /axle at the top from the crown headset race and a little under the arch from the mudguard. Steerer is 188mm long and tapered 1 1/8" - 1.5" 100x15mm axle Feel free to ask any questions Collection or will ship UK for £20 (to cover insurance)

YT Introduces New Limited Edition Top-Spec Alloy Capra
I think it’s around 2lbs heavier full bike than the top carban models however they have air shocks where this has coil and carbon cranks over alloy so the frame itself probably Isn’t much heavier

YT Introduces New Limited Edition Top-Spec Alloy Capra
I like to think my comment on the original Capra release post of "No high spec alloy models is disappointing" has contributed to this bikes existence!

Cane Creek Lowers Price on Helm Fork
@ninjatarian: Wasn't aware of that however every review I've seen has been glowing so selling more than expected wouldn't surprise me and on the flip side if they had a sale for a short time it would get more forks out the door and their performance would do the talking from there. Maybe i just like to have faith that a company might be genuine about passing the savings on, certainly makes the world seem nicer that way.

Cane Creek Lowers Price on Helm Fork
I'm not going to defend the pricing as it is absurd, however, comparing the car industry isn't fair as cars sell in volumes premium mountain bikes could only dream of, your average BMW in the car industry is the equivalent of a £500 hardtail, all our carbon fibre enduro bikes are much more comparable to super cars, and they ain't affordable.

Cane Creek Lowers Price on Helm Fork
Looks to me more like demand was higher than expected so because its spread over more forks they can reduce the cost, although that might be what they want you to think. If there wasn't demand i'd expect a sale or price offer to make them look like more of a good deal if price was the issue, not reduce the RRP.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Have an Air or Coil Sprung Shock on Your Trail Bike?
@NotNamed: until we start to see progressive springs I think the ramp control air gives you is well worth it, a cool won’t work on every suspension design but air will, even if you have to service it a little more often. While I do like set and forget I also like being able to tweak it every now and again for different riding without having to buy and swap a spring out.
