Cane Creek's Titanium Enduro Crankset - First Look
Know where else titanium and hirth joints are used??? Gas turbines. This thing is basically a freakin' jet engine.

Cane Creek's Titanium Enduro Crankset - First Look
@yeti951SD: That is a picture of the "Sweet Wings crankset from the mid-1990s" The new ones do not have a chain ring spider... because it's not the 1990s anymore.

Garbaruk 10 x 50 Wide-Range 11-Speed Cassette for SRAM XD Drivers - Review
@zdebruine: One piece construction would require a whole lot more machine time since you would have a hell of a time hollowing out the billet from the back side of the cassette. That last (largest) cog has to be the one to have splines that drive the XD driver body. It is the only logical way to design it from a load transfer standpoint. I suppose you could do some sort of torque tube driving off one of the smaller cogs, but that would require a lot more strength at the small end of the cassette since it would then see huge stress when climbing in a large cog. All steel is easy. One piece construction is not.

Sram Guide R Brakes

$130 USD
Selling a set of Guide R brakes. I planned to use them for my new build but came across a set of RSCs and jumped on those. I just rebuilt the master cylinders with the 2nd generation internals (see pictures). I have done this before with the Guides on my old bike and can confirm that it does solve the "sticking when hot" issue that plagued the first generation of Guides. They were fully disassembled and cleaned, then reassembled with the new internals using Sram DOT grease and then bench bled with new Sram DOT 5.1 fluid. They are fully functional and ready to go. Front measures 1040 mm (41") from the bar clamp to the center of the caliper Rear measures 1670 mm (65.75") from the bar clamp to the center of the caliper. The pads and rotors were only used for a few rides (barely bedded in). Organic pads and 180 mm 6-bolt rotors. The rotors are the new ones that have the rounded over outer edge (CNC milled) to make them "safer" i.e. slightly less likely to slice off body parts in the event of a mulit-rider pile up. Rotor and Caliper bolts included. One of the handlebar clamps is missing in the pics but I have a new one that will be included. Buyer pays shipping.

Intense Carbine 275

$2600 USD
Bike was mostly ridden on local single track in Charlotte NC. Pisgah trips a few times per year. I weigh ~160 lbs fully geared up. I am the original owner. Bike has always been kept clean and maintained. It was a Jenson custom build (Cane Creek edition) when I bought it, but I have upgraded many parts since then. Buyer to pay paypal fees and shipping. Frame: 2015 Medium Intense Carbine 275. Rear travel can be set to 150 mm or 135 mm. Frame has been heli-taped since Day 1 in all the right areas including bottom of downtube, top of top tube, back of seat tube, rear seat stays and chain stays around the tire clearance area, and all cable rub areas. The frame is in excellent condition overall. The rear triangle was replaced last year under warranty with the improved design (serial number ends in "R"). I have the paperwork to prove it. ALL frame bearings are in great contition and have been replaced and/or degreased and re-packed with Phil Wood waterproof grease within the last year. The BB92 pressfit has been made permanently creak free by installing the Wheels MFG BB which threads both sides together and sandwiches the frame. Fork: 2016 Fox 36 Factory Fit4 160 mm (Kashima). The original Pike was replaced with this fork a little over a year ago. I have done two lower leg services in that time. Fork stanchions are in excellent shape, no nicks, dents, or bushing wear. Rear Shock: 2017 Rockshox Monarch Plus RC3 Debonair. Brand new take-off from the frame of my new build (Bronson). Shock is brand new with only a couple rides on it so far. Excellent small bump sensitivity with the Debonair can. Seatpost: 2017 Fox Transfer Factory 125 mm (Kashima). Has been on the bike a little over a year and has been (and still is) flawless, both in it's operation and the condition of the stanchion. Fox 1x remote lever. I opened up the bottom and re-greased the sliding parts once with slick honey. Never had to touch the internals. Wheels: Sram Roam 30. The freehub body has been upgraded to the 4-pawl body of the Roam 40 wheels (52 POE). All wheel bearings have been replaced within the last year and were re-packed with Phil Wood grease before install. Rims have a few scratches and nicks, but no major dents or flatspots. They were re-tensioned and trued this winter, they spin true and round. Brakes : Sram Guide R. Master cylinders have been rebuilt with updated internals to solve the sticking on hot days issues that plagued the originals. (metal pads installed) Rotors: Sram Centerline 180 mm front & rear. Cranks: Sram XX1 Carbon 175 mm GXP. Have been on the bike a little over a year. Always run with crank boots. No major chips or scratches. Overall great condition. Chanirings: Included with sale is the Absoulte Black 30T oval ring, along with a lightly used Sram 30T round and a practially new Sram 32T round. Chain: XX1 Hollow pin (replaced ~200 miles ago). Cassette: Sram X1 10-42t has some wear, but has plenty of life left. Derailleur/Shifter: Sram X1 Headset: Cane Creek Forty series Stem: Raceface Atlas 50 mm Bars: Raceface SixC 785mm (31.8 mm clamp dia) Grips: ODI Rogue Tires: Maxxis Minion DHF 2.3" 3C MaxTerra Front / Maxxis Highroller II 2.3" TR Rear (Both setup tubeless) I have several other tires to choose from if you want something different. Pedals: Not included. Saddle: WTB Silverado Thinline (Brand new) is included. The WTB saddle mounted to the bike is NOT included. Extras: Have a spare set of replaceable dropouts w/ integrated derailleur hanger. Volume spacers for the fork. The two spare chain rings. Last time I weighed it was around 28.25 lbs (w/ pedals) but that was with the Cane Creek shock, and probably different tires (Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 Snake skin Fr / Schwalbe Rock Razor 2.35 Snake Skin Rear)

When Are New Standards Called For? - Pinkbike Poll
@oogens: I don't remember ever seeing Sram say what their tolerance was on the shaft diameter, only that the nominal shaft diameter was 28.99 mm. But for reference, a +/- 0.01 mm tolerance is really not that absurd in the machining world. I have some interference fit diameters in my job that require a +/- 0.008 mm tolerance, and that is on a diameter with a nominal size of around 500 mm. Achieving that tolerance from a turning process is difficult, but not impossible. When you get into precision grinding machines (which i am sure is what they use to finish their bearing race fit diameters) a +/- 0.01 mm tolerance is easy. I regularly order attribute gauges in that nominal size range with tolerances of +0.005 / -0 mm. I do agree that they should have just called it 29 mm for marketing reasons.
