Online Deals - May 2018
That is a bit ridiculous, but I regularly get tires in 3's or 4's from TBS. They're usually $60-70 CAD each at that qty, with free shipping. A year's worth of tires is just setting yourself up for success.

Ask Pinkbike: Unwanted Unclipping, Badly Bled Brakes, & Toolbox Tips
Or use the "Marshy Method". Either with the fluid pot at the lever bleed port, or a syringe with removed plunger... You just let gravity do the work and don't need to attach anything to the lower bleed port. Works a charm. Easy as pie.

Chromag Aperture (Medium)

$750 CAD
Chromag Aperture Size Medium. Complete bike with a great parts spec. Fork will need new seals soon, and that is reflected in the low sale price. I purchased this frame in 2013 and enjoyed it for about 3 years before I stopped riding it. It's time to pass it along to someone else who can extract more fun from it. Drive Train: Raceface Turbine Cranks, One Up 30T NW ring. 10spd cassette with One Up 42T expander ring. SLX clutch derailleur and Shimano 10spd chain. Shimano 10spd rear shifter. Fork: Fox Talus 32, 150/140/130mm travel adjust (very handy for steep or grueling climbs). Open bath system, so very simple and easy to work on. Has a very effective low speed compression, rebound and air spring adjustments. The fork just works well. Brakes: Formula R1 (front) and Formula RX (rear). Fresh bleed and brand new semi-metallic pads front and rear. Wheels: Mavic CrossMax set up tubeless with new condition WTB Vigilante Tires. Tires have a very aggressive tread pattern, with sticky yet durable rubber and tough sidewalls (tread is at 100%, only a few rides). Cockpit: Raceface Turbine 760 bar, with 6pack Racing SAM65 stem, and lock-on grips. Saddle/Post: WTB Silverado saddle (in good shape) bolted to a brand new Raceface seat post. Pedals: Price does not include pedals. The ones pictured are Saint Flat pedals in good condition with all the pins in good shape. If you want these pedals it's $30 extra ($780 total), because they belong to my GF and I'll have to replace them with something else to avoid any negative vibes. This bike is in good shape, and has been well maintained. As mentioned above, the fork will need fresh seals very soon (fluid beginning to appear on the stanchions, one side). The fork has been regularly serviced at SuspensionWerx, and historically has needed a service every two years of regular use (regular means lots...). I'm happy to answer any questions/inquiries about this bike, but please no low-ball offers. I'm selling this at a price that I feel is a good deal so it will sell quickly. The price is firm. Thanks for looking!

Throwback Thursday: Wade Simmons' & Shaun Palmer's Legendary Bikes
@ninjatarian: Disagree. A steeper HA would drop the front end more than a slack HA, given the same fork travel (fixed). That means the steep angle would actually dive more and make the huge chainring collide more than with a slack HA. Also means that the fork wouldn't be as efficient in soaking up forward impacts and would be binding more against the bushings. And as for chain ring size, the pie-plate chain rings were used because pedaling sections were far more prevalent, and they just jacked up the BB to compensate as much as possible. If you look at the cog size of DH bikes today, they're probably the most similar component to the old DH bikes, that you'll find. Actually, today's cog sizes probably average smaller (7spd now, limited on the tall end).

Race Face Announces New Turbine R Dropper Post
@formilouis: I was surprised that I hadn't even heard of that post yet... Had to look it up. Get on it media!! Some really cool features on that post, and once the price of a remote is factored in, it's in-line with the CAD pricing on the X-fusion. The only place where the X-fusion wins is that replacement cartridges for x-fusion are about $30 CAD, compaired to over $100CAD for One-Up.
