Thanks, it was fun to build and I've really enjoyed riding it. Easily the most playful bike of it's kind that I've ever ridden.

Don't recall the weight at the moment, but it is fairly light considering the frame is fairly heavy. No offset headset, but a 20mm longer fork than standard which slacks it out nicely for some more spirited downhill runs.

Thanks. For a single pivot design, it pedals pretty well especially with the addition of the Climb Switch on the Cane Creek shock.

Transition Bottlerocket, Medium, Mint Green

$1900 USD
Selling my Transition Bottlerocket and I want it gone, so make me a reasonable offer. It's a 2010 frame bought in 2011 and built in many forms over the years. I'm a former bike mechanic, so this thing has been really well taken care of and kitted with the best components. It's been built in it's current form to be more of an all-mountain rig, but I still have the dh cassette and Saint derailleur/shifter if someone wants that on instead. This is easily one of the most fun park bikes I've ever been on. Most components have been put on in the last couple years, so none are as old as the frame. Fork was serviced within the last few rides, new frame bearings have been put in, rear freehub serviced. Only thing it could use is a new DU bushing but rides fine without it for now. Spec list: Frame: 2010 Transition Bottlerocket Medium, Mint Green Fork: Fox Float 36 180 RC2 Kashima Headset: Chris King InSet Shock: Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS Brakes: Hope Tech V2 with Braided Lines Disk rotors: Hope Tech Floating (203/180) R/Shifter: Shimano XT/Shimano Saint R/Mech: Shimano XT Shadow+ 10sp/Shimano Saint Shadow Cassette: Shimano XT 10sp with Hope Tech 40t T-Rex Cranks: Shimano Saint Bottom Bracket: FSA MegaExo Chainring: Raceface Single NW 30t Chain: Shimano XT Bars: Enve DH Stem: Straitline Pinch 35mm Pedals: Straitline Defacto Grips: ODI Lockon Troy Lee Seatpost: Thomson Elite 410mm Seat clamp: Loaded AmXC QR Seat: Fizik Tundra Wheels: Fulcrum Red Zone XLR Tubeless Tires: Continental Mountain King 2.4 Tubeless

Video: Your Kid's Going to Want This
It's Transition... the entire video was tongue-in-cheek. My parents couldn't get me a 'good' bike at that age either, but you know what I did, I got a damn job, saved up and bought the bike I wanted. One can either sit around and feel sorry for themselves or do something to change their situation.

First Look: SRAM Guide Ultimate Brakes
Never in these tests do they do use some form of compression test, where they use a specific amount of weight and compress the fluid and see which one compresses less. That's the info I want and feel like they are missing half the point of a comparison test. Boiling point... sure it's a good number to know, but I would like to know how many people truly have boiled their fluid whether DOT or mineral. I never have on my bike, that's something that happens on race cars. Also a note on the boiling points in the Shimano test. The ones listed for DOT fluid are the minimum boiling points to meet DOT specifications. Many companies boiling points far exceed those minimum requirements. There are DOT 4's that go up to 680 degrees F before boiling.

Just look up the word 'native' in the dictionary. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/native No, you are not a Native American in terms of the proper noun you used (see you even capitalized it) but if you were born in America, you are a native American (native used as an adjective). Now we don't say that out loud because it would get really confusing, but you can say you are an American native to take out the confusion. What do they teach kids these day?

Your statement contradicts itself. I'm assuming you're confusing the word indigenous with native.
