Best in Show Award Winners - NAHBS 2019
The Black Cat fillet brazed bike was just amazing. The details on the bike are stunning. I hope they do a set of detail photos of it. It was the best looking MTB at the show with the Retrotec Sierra Nevada bike a close second. The Porter Cycles city bike had amazing hand made everything polished to the 9's. It was kind of hard to see at the show because of the crowd around it.

Here is an all original Marin MTB. While the bike came with no decals when new, the serial number, frame construction and materials match up with other early Marins. The year is based on the date codes of the Shimano XT parts and the frame details. The purple and blue colors however, don't match with any catalog I can find. Marin started in 1986 and I suspect this may have been one of the first bikes they produced. The pictures represent how I found the bike. I've had this bike in my collection for a little while and I'd love to see it go to a collector or a museum.

Here is a very nice Trail Machine with the fantastic VPP suspension design. Bike pedals very efficiently and rides smooth with a new drive train, brakes and fork. 2x10 Sram X7, X9, Shimano hydro brakes have tons of power. New Rock Shox Recon Fork is plush and smooth. King Headset, Fatboy bars, Truvativ shorty stem. The bike would ideally fit someone 5-9 to 5-11. I'm 6' and it's a touch small for me with the short stem. It's currently setup as 1x10, however the brand new shifter and front derailer are included and I will install prior to the sale.

An Air-Pressurized Frame For Adventure Bikes? - Eurobike 2018
Very Cool. Boulder bikes back in the day put the air shock inside the frame top tube. Pressurizing the entire frame could eliminate the piggy back shock reservoir and inflate your tires to boot.

Here is my 2017 Yeti SB5.5, identical to the 2018. This is a fantastic do it all bike and you'd be hard pressed to find a trail that this thing can't handle. This is the stock SLX/XT build. I rode this bike for about 6 months and with my schedule lately I'm just not able to spend the time riding that this bike deserves. Low miles on this bike and with the exception of scratches on the down tube, there's hardly a scratch on the bike. BTW, I have the touch up paint and I'll include it with the bike. The suspension is buttery smooth and the Shimano brakes are fantastic. This was my first Yeti and I can say these guys make some amazing bikes. I cant say enough good about how the Switch Infinity works. Just flawless! Pedals not included and buyer pays shipping.
