Ok, so looking to N+1 things. '### LOOKING TO BUY ###' Ideally 2017 or newer, so the front end already has 150mm travel. 1x11 or 1x12 is just fine. Firm on the carbon frame part. Size is Large. Ideally, that fantastic YT red colour. Ping me if you're thinking of changing your ride. Making things hard for myself here, but it looks like due to border taxes of ~15-20% this will be much more successful for a bike already in Canada. Bummer, but true. Can work with your local bike shop to have them vet it for me, pack it and ship it. We'd just agree the shop and you take it down there for them to look over and call me. From there we sort the sale and the pack/ship is between me and the shop. Cheers, JM

Study Finds Potatoes as Effective as Energy Gels
Wow, this, uh, stayed more or less on topic and didn't spin-off into PunCentral. I'm shocked. I'm going to go have a potato.

Review: Marin Mount Vision - Strange Looks, Intriguing Performance
Wow, the part of the bike protecting all that low hanging carbon from huge rocks is... uh, well, all that low hanging carbon. What could possibly go wrong?

SIZE: 7.875" eye to eye and a 2.25" stroke (metric 200mm x 57mm) This shock has the XV air can. HISTORY: Used for a year on my Kona Process 153 DL. Last serviced at end of 2017 by Fluid Function in Squamish, no rides on it since then. NO ISSUES: Really smooth action, great shock, no issues, no scratches on piston, no air loss. Ran it for a year, but have moved East and opted to downgrade to a RS Monarch Plus to save a bit of weight. I'm not a bike park guy, so its life has been dealing with rolls rather than drops. A very adjustable piece of equipment (I'll include my cheat sheet for setting it up for your tastes/trails). The Climb Switch does really work great on the uphill ! INCLUDED ALSO: Will send all the extra volume reducing spacers, too (unused, see photos). LOCATION: I live in Western Quebec, but for some reason my profile won't update to show that.

Tioga Spyder Outland Seat - Review
So, for water and mud coming up off the back tyre....that seems like it might be a bit of an issue for general backside dampness, no? Hoping not, looks interesting. Might try the lighter cheaper version.

MRP 2x bashguard and chain guide Black 36-38T, ISCG-05, 10 (or 9) speed. Straight and true, no scrapes, cogs run smoothly. Went to 1x and smaller chainring, so surplus to requirements. MRP web link: http://www.mrpbike.com/2xguide/ MRP info: ======== Removable integrated skid protects chainrings and glides over rocks and obstacles Dual pulley design provides precise chain engagement while reducing noise and drag Raised top fin profile prevents the chain from dropping to the BB shell BB mounted guides are only compatible with traditional, threaded BB systems 130g (36-38t ISCG-05) & 147g (39-42t ISCG) Designed to work seamlessly with the new wave of 2×10 drivetrains, the 2x utilizes MRP's patented integrated skid chainring protection (US Patents RE 42,436 / 8,235,849 Patents Pending) and features a dual pulley tensioning system. Notable on the 2x system is the absence of a crank-mounted bash guard or guide ring, instead it relies on the front derailleur and cutting-edge lower pulley assembly for complete chain retention. The integrated skid protects the chainrings from impacts without the added weight of a full bash ring. The dual pulley tensioning system ensures that the chain is properly tensioned and in the right position, keeping it on the chainring in the roughest conditions. The dual pulleys also reduce drag and noise compared to other designs, ensuring a better riding experience. Finally, the raised top fin profile prevents the chain from dropping to the BB shell.

RaceFace 32T NarrowWide chainring. Black. Went down to 30T, so this is going spare. Based on chain stretch at time of removal, about 2/3 life left.
