Intense Tracer

$500 CAD
This is an awesome beginner bike for yourself, or your girlfriend/short boyfriend that you're trying to get into biking, but don't want to drop your life savings on (yet). My wife loved this bike, and we discovered that she also loved mountain biking! So we upgraded her, and are now selling this trusty steed on to the next person to enjoy! I know it's got 26" wheels. I know its got 3x9. I know that the dropper post doesn't go up by itself. But I also know that the brakes make you stop, the suspension makes you comfortable (and it's adjustable!) and the wheels are Mavic Crossmax's! That's crazy! There's not a tonne to say about this bike, it's all there, it all works good. You don't have to be afraid of scratching it (we've done that for you) and it's pretty cheap for a very decent beginner bike.

Also, just for the record, I am not saying I think forest fires should be left to burn. We need to stop them, as they are destroying good forest, and endangering humans... I hope I didn't come across that way! I purely wanted to comment on the forest management side. It is very commendable what James is doing, and I am very thankful for all of the men and women committing their time and risking their lives for this province.

@SithBike: If you don't mind, I would like to clear some stuff up regarding BC forest management... "Old growth" forests are amazing, however they are not prime examples of forest sustainability. Naturally, forests would burn down in forest fires sparked by lightning. This would reset the eco system, and completely re-vitalize the soil. New vegetation would start growing, creating habitats for a lot of different animals such as deer, bear, rodents, etc. As the forest grew up, it would bring new habitats for birds, and other forest type animals. The deer and bear would move to the next fledgling forest, and the cycle would repeat. Now days we are so efficient and effective at stopping forest fires, that there isn't enough "recycling" going on. This leaves forests susceptible to other plagues such as the pine beetle epidemic. Thankfully, a lot of our forest fires lately have been burning these useless dead forests down. To replace the naturally occurring forest fires, logging is the next best thing. When a forest is cut down, all of the branches, roots, stumps, foliage, and cut offs are left to decompose, which puts good nutrients back into the ground. Then the forest cycle can reset from there. In the old days, clear cutting was a thing, and obviously bad. Modern logging cuts down forests in "patches" almost like a 3 level checkers boards. This leaves forests standing ready to be cut, next to patches of forest mid way through it's regrowth cycle, and then freshly cut forest, all layered throughout the area. This gives all of the wild life great habitats to live in, while refreshing the soil. After a cut area has had a chance to rest for a bit, new trees are planted. This, combined with the natural seeding from the fully grown forests nearby, allow healthy new forests to grow up quickly. A large area of forest is permanently left around any creeks/lakes etc or any special habitats for fish and other wild life. All of this leads to healthy, sustainable logging. If you've ever spent much time in any old growth forests, you would notice that, while the trees are bigger, they are generally dying. If you cut down an old growth tree, most of the inside is rotten and dead, while just the outer foot or two is actually alive. These trees end up just falling down, or get hit by lightning and burning anyway because the rotten wood inside isn't full of moisture. The fact is that that we need wood. We need it for so many things its crazy. Things we don't even think about. This wood has to come from somewhere, and BC is bristling with forests that would otherwise burn or be infected with pine beetle or whatever else. They are a renewable and sustainable resource, so why not use them? Most of the forests that are logged and everybody complains about, will only ever be set foot in by the people logging them. I would far rather use our forests well, than be pumping the earth full of chemicals and burning away our ozone layer with a "use once and discard" resource such as oil. Some of the most beautiful forests around BC, a lot of which the general population think are either old growth or second growth, are actually more like 3rd, 4th or even 5th growth. There are huge misconceptions around logging and forestry, but the reality is that BC forests are some of the best managed forests in the world, and something to be proud of.

LOL @ no resort tax. Maybe you've been in Whistler a little too long to remember what it's like outside the bubble.
