King/Hope Stans Arch 29" wheelset

$350 USD
New frame means none of my parts fit anymore. These were my spare wheels and never saw many miles. Rear is a King hub, 12x142, front is a Hope Pro 2 Evo with 15x100 end caps, hoops are Stands Arch, still straight as an arrow but have a couple little marks (see pics) black spokes and red alloy nipples. These will come with a set of Hans Damf 29x2.4" tires with good tread if you want them. I've got a King bolt on rear axle if you still have a QR frame and probably have some 20x110 end caps for the front you need those. Shoot me an offer, my spare parts pile has been ruined by Boost 148 and I'm willing to make deals.

Review: 1 Year on Cane Creek's Ultra-Light Titanium eeWings Crankset
I've been running cheap cranks for a while now because I like to test out the density of rocks with my cranks and carbon just wasn't on the menu. I think I may just reward my decade of frugality with a set of these, they're stupid, but so, so cool. I'm also getting the purple anno Paul dropper level, again, stupid, and awesome

Video: Kirt Voreis Chooses the Desert
Where was this filmed? The high desert is approximately gigantic, but those trails look rad. Need to do some camping and riding where ever that is.

First Ride: Salsa's New Spearfish and Horsethief
The bikes look interesting, but the price is a little out of whack IMHO. As far as I'm aware, Salsa is still QBP's house brand, and should be a bit less expensive that the "name brands", or at least that's how they've always been before. Was interested in the Horsethief, but at $200 more than a comparably equipped Smuggler, or a whopping $800 more than a GX built GG Trailpistol my interest dropped off significantly.

Review: Enve’s M735E Wheelset Fails Our Test
@ecologist: I suspect you're not in the manufacturing field. Those are insane numbers, that's 1 in 50 customers having a warranty claim (assuming most people have 2 ENVE hoops on their bike). An acceptable number would be something like 1/10 of a percent warranty return rate, for any factor, and significantly less than that for catastrophic failures as seen in this review. These are heavy rims being ridden as designed. They were on an enduro e-bike, that was presumably built with other parts designed for similar applications, the rims failed, the rest of the bike did not. The replacement rims failed, and the one that didn't fail should have been caught in QC and would have also been a warranty return due to being drilled by a blind gopher. Also, as somebody else mentioned, wasn't most of the justification for price and argument of their merits on ENVE rims the molded spoke holes and the resulting uninterrupted fibers? I know at one point I asked i9 about building me a set of torch hubs with alloy spokes on ENVE rims and was told they're not compatible because of the molded spoke holes. When did they switch to drilling?

Review: Enve’s M735E Wheelset Fails Our Test
@heinous: Hidden in that drivel about rim strips are two fairly disturbing numbers. First the warranty rate before the strips, at a bit over 3%, that's pretty horrendous. Second is the warranty rate with the strips at 1%, that's 3x less horrendous, but still horrendous. It also says nothing of denied warranty claims, who knows how many of those there may be.
