Uphill is good, too.

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.

Truvativ bashguard off my 2015 Kona Process Black, aluminum, super light (58g) 4-hole, std 104BCD Would also work for protection of your NarrowWide down to 32T size. Great shape, no big hits, one small scrape in black anodize. I went down to a 30T so this is going spare. Wish my current bash was this light.

Actually, the stem should be mounted backwards. Gives a negative stem length. Even better.

2L would be 2 kilos. So, job done.

Specialized Enduro Expert SL, Medium frame (aluminum) I had SuspensionWerx replace the Float uppers (new steerer/crown/stanchions assembly & the bushings) last year. Bike stored vertically to keep that investment in prime condition (keeps the bushings soaking in oil when not in use). 2014 RP23 Kashima rear shock, new last year. All parts except M5 frame, Hollotech II cranks and Shimano front derailleur have been upgraded. Got this bike when I moved to the North Shore. Has been an excellent steed. Used it as my “laboratory” to try half a dozen different kinds of tyres, multiple different kinds of bars/pedals/seats, coil and air shocks, fixed and Reverb seatpost, 165/180/205 brake rotors, etc. Got a great deal on a new ride, so have decided to go with that and sell my Enduro. Am an engineer by training, so (with the assistance of the BikeRoom here in North Vancouver) proceeded to disassemble and maintain/replace/upgrade pretty much everything on the bike. Recent updates/upgrades: =================== New seals and oil in the Fox 36 Float RC2 shock two months ago. Reverb seatpost JUST got a full rebuild (4 weeks ago) at Bicycle Hub in North Vancouver – like new now. Replaced ALL the frame bearings with Enduro sealed bearings. Replaced the front wheel bearings with Enduro sealed bearings. New Cane Creek C110 headset, red anodized. Replaced full drivetrain & bashguard (cassette, front rings, chain at only 0.25% stretch) As noted, it was my “lab” bike and my new ride isn't compatible with some of the things I was trying out, so I can throw in the following: ========================= Continental 2.2 Tire King (60% life, but a good backup if you cut a tire on a weekend away) Continental 2.2 Mtn King (same state – very fast rear tyre) 205 Avid CleanSweep rotor (I just don't need that much rotor up front – not a bike park guy) 165 Avid CleanSweep rotor with anodized blue central carrier (was on back, upgraded to 185 now) Bontrager bar (7deg up sweep, 9deg back sweep); unused. New rear shift cable & housing - if I get time I'll get that replaced before the sale. One pair, new, still in the package, Avid metal brake pads. Will include original Specialized fixed seatpost, as after another year you may need to send the Reverb for service and you can put that in and keep riding while you wait for it to come back. The build: ======= Fox Float 36 RC2 160mm travel, stanchions pristine (see above) -Seals, oil just serviced. -New uppers, bushings last year (see above). Fox RP23 Factory Series, Kashima coating, Boost Valve, high volume air can, 7.875” x 2.25”. -Purchased new, serviced and setup by SuspensionWerx last year. RockShox Reverb 5” travel, 30.9mm dia (just fully rebuilt, see above), external routing. -Lefthand remote mounted inverted under bar on right (better protected location). SRAM X-9 Impulse shifters Shimano LX front derailleur SRAM X-0, Carbon Blackbody cage, rear derailleur (put the money where it counts) Shimano Hollotech II cranks, running 2x 9 speed & bashguard -22T Blackspire ChuckRing chainring (steel for maximum life) 64mm BCD -34T Shimano large chainring (just plain shifts better than everyone else's) 104mm BCD -BlackSpire C4 Ring God bashguard RaceFace bottom bracket (running great). SRAM 11-34T PG970 cassette SRAM 991 9 speed chain with SpeedLink installed (only 0.25% stretch, about 75% life remaining) Avid Elixir CR Mag(nesium) brakes with carbon levers, blue anodized 180mm Avid CleanSweep rotors front & back (spare 165 and 203 available, see above) Avid sintered metal pads Kenda Nevegal John Tomac Series DTC (dual compound) 26” x 2.35” tyres -front and back (about 80-85% life left) -Running with tubes (I like the Nevegals and they're not compatible with the Tubeless goo) DT Swiss E5440 rims on Specialized wheelset (new sealed bearings front, rears repacked) -straight & true -20mm front maxle -9mm x 135mm standard quick release rear (convertible to 10mm solid) VSixty Magnesium pedals, black, super light, drilled and tapped to add more pins Easton Havoc stem 60mm, 7deg rise Knolly/LizardSkin LockOns (wow, these things feel great) Selle Italia X2 Flow Saddle
