No XC. Downhill, trials or street/dirt only. I want a BMX.

New Renthal Fatbar and Fatbar Lite
315g is a massive weight saving? What the hell did the old ones weigh, and why were they so expensive if they're so heavy? What are people paying for, the name or the ugly colour? Also... I thought the colour was meant to match non kashima stanchions?

Throwback Thursday: Mountain Biking Console Games
Jesus pb why talk about something you have no knowledge or experience about? "games that, only a few years prior to their release, were a dream." I assure you, nobody in the 90's dreampt of games like this. They were shovel ware. A good mtb game would have been great, but the fact there isn't a mtb game franchise now is testament to how terrible these were. "he graphics were mindblowing (at the time, anyway)" No, even at the time they were terrible. So the article is a few factually wrong quotes and some YouTube links... great journalism guys, can't wait for the e-bike feature later today.

Ibis Mojo frame, overall very good condition, but does have two areas of cable rub near the seat tube, some paint rash on the under side of top tube and seat stays from car rack, and a small indent to the rear chainstay from tyre rub - I had this checked by an Engineer "specializing" in carbon mountain bike frame design, he said it's nothing to worry about just looks worse than it is (or "just looks ugly" as he put it). Has some other minor marks and signs of wear and teat but overall an excellent frame. Comes with Fox RP23 shock which is superb but has started squelching so could possibly do with a service. I think the price is pretty fair but open to sensible offers. Also open to offers of similar but large/x-large frames as only reason for sale is I'm way too tall for this. Also available as a complete bike if you're interested, see other listings.

Forgive the copy and paste but I don't have the time to write this all out all over again: Ibis Mojo Classic One of the first true "super bikes" this bike is amazing. Recently built using modern components to be my dream bike, unlike a lot of high end bikes on ebay this is in excellent condition and the components are excellent. Unfortunately this is just too small for me, so with great sadness it must go. Entire bike has been stripped and serviced prior to sale. Bike was cleaned and lubricated after every ride after building. Size is medium, which is recommended for riders of 5'4" to 5'9". Hence, at 6'2" I'm just far too tall. Hence, I am happy to sell the complete bike and start again or just the frame, as almost all the parts are new or in excellent working condition. The following parts were new 167.5 miles ago (thanks Strava!) Shimano XT M8000 Rear Mech Shimano SLX M7000 175mm Cranks & 34T Narrow Wide Chainring Shimano SLX M7000 11-42 Cassette SRAM 11 speed Chain Shimano SLX M7000 Shifter with M8000 indicator window Shifter and dropper cable. Ultra-Light inner tubes (around 100 grams, can't remember exact weight but similar to weight of tape valve and sealant without all the fuss and mess) Blue Hope QR for rear wheel DMR V12 Mag Pedals Cane Creek Heaset Reverse Engineering 50mm Stem Spank Spike Race Tyres: Originally this bike was built with super light Schwalbe Nobby Nic 26x2.1's, these were amazingly fast but a little sketchy over wet roots and loose rocks in the winter, hence I switched them out to Schwalbe Hans Dampf Evo MTB Tyre - SnakeSkin in Trailster compound, 26 x 2.35". These are increadible in all conditions, they've done about 80 of the 160 miles ridden on this bike. The Nobby Nics have been kept for summer use, I'll include them with the sale, as well as two pairs of XT M8000 brake Pads which are new in packaging. Remaining Spec: Forks - Fox Talas 32 Fit RLC with Kashima Coating. Serviced and not ridden since, internally these are in mint condition - these forks are super plush and retailed for £850. They're probably the best of all the TALAS forks that were made, with 120 or 150mm travel modes (though tbh I'd only use 150 on this bike). I was going to switch these out to FLOAT internals but the performance is so good there's honestly no need. Brakes - Shimano M8000 brakes, about a year old and still performing amazingly, these are easily the best brakes I've ever had. Wheels - Rear Hub HOPE PRO II in black. Front hub not sure of brand, it's a nice CNC'd hub with super smooth bearings. Both 32 Hole. Rims are WTB Laserlite FR, chosen as I wanted a rim around the 400g mark with proven strength and a decent width (these are about 29mm internal). WTB Saddle (Think it's a 'pure') X Fusion Hi-Lo 125mm Dropper Fox RP23 Shock BAD BITS Cosmetic Marks: - The frame had an invisi kit on when I purchased it, however some places have become marked - primarily near the seat post as shown in the pictures. - There are minor marks to the metal chain stay protector - There is a minor indent where a tyre has previously rubbed against the Chainstay. I was worried about this and had it looked at by an engineer who develops carbon mountain bikes who assured me it looked a lot worse than it is and not to worry about it. I've tried to photo this for you - Annoyingly the black cane creek headset wore through to silver against the cables, has black electrical tape around it at the moment - Forks have minor cable wear to the crown and one tiny chip near the top of the kashima stanchions. Probably less than 1mm - Frame has quite a few minor "rash" marks, these are from the bike rack on the back of the car so mostly under the seat stay and top tube. Also some minor marks to the paint laquer around the chain-stay. Parts that may need attention/servicing in the near future: - The RP23 shock has been amazing but recently started "squelching" (one ride ago) still is performing perfectly and holding air fine, but likely needs a service soon. I was going to try a basic air can service to see if that helps, and if not I'd just buy a new one to be honest. - The X-Fusion dropper is working fine and has been for hundreds of miles, but like all droppers it can be a pain sometimes. Lost all it's pressure over the winter and started returning very slowly, but when pumped up again it stayed fine for the next few rides (about 50 miles). There seems to be about 10mm of compression when you sit on it at full extension. Like all droppers it has a little play from left to right (twisting/turning) but NOT wobble. In use it's been great but worth mentioning that it's not perfect. Also it's meant to have a noodle over the cable around the top of the seatpost where it activates, this part is missing so it can get stuck with mud which prevents it working properly if it dries on - this has only happened once whilst dealing with the nasty winter conditions that we have, probably worth putting a short length of gear outer over this section of cable to fix the problem These are being pefectionist - overall condition is very good and the bike is simply amazing. The only really significant things are the rear shock and the dropper, both of which I would expect to be fine for the foreseeable future but worth mentioning in case they don't last. This is a used bike, it is sold as-is, I've done my best to describe everything as accurately and fairly as possible but please ask if you have any questions. Cash on collection ONLY, NO PAYPAL. Location is SW London (SM4 4HF is postcode for sat-nav), viewings are welcome and encouraged so you can see what you're getting, no tyre kickers though please.

Wyn Masters' Prototype GT Downhill Bike - First Look
So, after years of avoiding paying for the horst link patent GT are back on horst link. Also after years of trying to tell us idrive was superior. Anyone who rode a Lobo/STS DS back to back with the idrive that replaced them could tell you the old horst link was superior. Now nearly 20 years later we're back where we started, and all the while people go on and on about how suspension design gas come on such a long way over the last few years. ... not saying it hasn't, santa cruz,yeti and the pivot/ibis implementation of dw link are all progress, but I still don't think they're revolutionary.
