Bike Check: Brodie's 2002 8-Ball & the Case for Incremental Improvements
Cool article on an old bike - definitely brings back similar memories! In seeing this tho - I was hoping to see the old bike get ridden on today's trails! It made me think - why doesn't pinkbike do a series (monthly?) where they do a back to back comparison of an old bike vs. a new bike - but to make it interesting to watch, make it a race against the clock. Have a retired pro ride the new bike down the trail and compare times with one of the fastest up and coming racers riding the old bike down the trail - add in some highlights about the (lack of) performance of the old bike with slo-mo corner and rock garden clips and voila! Might be a liability for the young racer's career - but would be fun to watch them try and wrangle the old beasts down the hill!

2013 Specialized Tricross Custom – Size 52cm – Custom build This is a custom build based on the 2013 Specialized Tricross Custom bike, in frame size 52 cm. The bike was built to work as a gravel touring bike for a bike packing trip I took in 2016 to Europe. It worked very well but I realized it’s about 4-6 cm too small for me and I’m looking to pass it on to a fellow biker that it will fit better. As Built, it weighs 22.8 pounds without pedals. As a touring bike, I customized a few things on the bike, mainly just the gearing to have a wider ratio with only 2 front chain rings. I used a mountain rear cassette with wide spacing, and a mountain rear derailleur with a long length to shift reliably. I ensured that these all mated up to the road shifter/brake levers properly and it shifts flawlessly throughout its entire range. The stock aluminum fork was switched out for a carbon fork that has bosses, which were used for a front rack. The carbon fork absorbs the small chatter bumps nicely. The Avid BB5 disc brakes are nice for touring when the weather is adverse and they have brand new brake pads in them which should last a few thousand miles no problem for the next rider. I put a wider bar on the front, mainly since I’m more of a mountain bike rider – but it does have a nice width and bend for touring. Local buyers to the Golden, CO area can meet up with me to avoid shipping costs. I’d prefer Local buys to avoid tearing this beauty down and stuffing it in a box. Bike doesn’t come with pedals - but I can put some plastic ones on it for test/parking lot rides and the buyer can keep them if they choose.

2014 Santa Cruz V10 – Size Large – All Carbon This is a custom build based on the full carbon V10 frame from 2014. As built, it weighs 32.8 pounds without pedals. Component Spec is as follows: > Rockshox Boxxer with Charger Damper and light spring > Fox DHX2 Coil with SLS 350lb spring > Professional Hand built Light Bicycle carbon wheelset (32mm inner width) with DT double butted spokes with a Hope Pro2 hub (40 engagement points) > Maxxis Minion DHF Super Tacky front tire (buyer gets 1x extra, unused) > Maxxis Minion DHR II 3C rear tire (buyer gets 1x extra, unused) > Race Face 35mm Atlas handlebar (uncut) > Race Face Half Nelson lock on grips (The best… in my opinion ) > Shimano Zee Brake Calibers, Ice Tech 200mm Rotors and new XT levers (upgraded adjustability, lighter) > SRAM X0 DH carbon crankset with 36T direct mount chain ring > Shimano Zee DH short rear derailleur and Zee shifter > And the other components are generally a mixture of light weight, strong and durable for DH park riding and racing longevity. This bike was ridden about 5 times a year, maybe more if I was lucky haha! This bike will ideally fit a rider 5’-7” to 6’-2” and in the realm of 150lb to 180lb pretty darn well without touching a thing. Heavier riders may want a heavier rear spring – but the front spring works well up to nearly 200lbs (with gear). Local buyers to the Golden, CO area can meet up with me to avoid shipping costs. I’d prefer Local buys to avoid tearing this beauty down and stuffing it in a box. Bike doesn’t come with pedals - but I can put some plastic ones on it for test/parking lot rides and the buyer can keep them if they choose.

Get ready for the winter in style - imagine yourself with these brand used ski racks on top of your car! These Thule ski racks in GREAT used condition will haul 4 snowboards or 6 skis of normal proportions - get some fat bastards up there and you might only fit 4 powder skis - but at that point you're still ahead of the game! Also included in this setup are adapters for round style crossbars - currently installed is the aero clamps which is more common on most cars with new roof rack setups. Shipping is not included on this item - shipping will be between $20 and $25 depending on where you live!
