Giddy Up 2.0: Transition Teases 4 New Bikes - Video
This video makes me want to ride my bike. Also, I'm looking at a Patrol carbon frame. Now I may be able to get a good deal on a 2017 :)

Specialized Update Enduro for 2018 - First Look - Crankworx Whistler 2017
I'm wondering what shock people would put on this instead. You can get a Fox Float x2, CCDB Air and an Ohlins coil. I think that covers the spectrum of awesomeness. Love them or hate them Specialized is big enough for shock companies to adhere to their standards.

ENVE's New Carbon Rim and Protective Insert - Crankworx Whistler 2017
Given what my rims look like after a month of use, you would think a set of $1500 hoops would come with some kind of 3m wrap to prevent rocks from chipping away at them. I know it's mostly cosmetic but that would anger me if I ever felt so compelled to buy such a novelty.

Meekboyz's Carbon Fiber Kids Bikes - Crankworx Whistler 2017
It's funny that many people who are complaining about the prices of these bikes will drop $5-$10k per year per kid on a club team sport (travel, etc), an overpriced car, McMansion or some lame ass trip to Disney.

Bike Check: Richie Rude's Yeti SB5.5 - EWS Aspen 2017
Another year of top pros choosing alloy rims over carbon. I keep thinking that the pendulum will swing but it appears this guy is running a relatively low-brow set of $1100 wheels?

Graphic: Broke My Ankle Riding DH - Video
This ^^^. I broke my foot 2 years back in a not too different scenario. I also just started riding moto and the gear is way more advanced. I'd like to see a downhill shoe which provides more ankle support but allows for the mobility/grip needed.

Push ACS-3 Coil Spring Conversion Kit - First Look
In Push I trust. My Push'd Fox 36 is the single best mountain bike product I've owned or ridden. If they developed it, it will work well and do as intended.

Specialized Stumpjumper Elite 29er Small

$2500 USD
This is the highest end alloy Specialized Stumpjumper from 2016 (same frame as current model).This is similar to the "Expert" but with an alloy frame. It is a small 2016 Specialized Stumpjumper Elite. This one has been ridden less than 10 times and only has a few superficial scratches on it from transport. It's never been crashed and is like-new. X1 1x11 drivetrain with Shimano SLX Brakes. The Pike is amazing as is the Kashima Float rear shock. The wheels are the high-end 29mm internal wide rims with very durable hubs. Everything is in perfect condition and even has a new set of $150 Maxxis Minions on it (DHR 2/DHF 2.5). The stock tires will be included in sale and you can see by their wear just how little this bike has been used. I'm selling for my brother who is 5'7 and it's just a little too small for him. Pedals are not included. Thanks and let me know if you have any questions. Full specs below:

Maxxis Forekaster Tire - Review
I love Maxxis tires for exactly 7 rides before they are nearly worn (especially the rear). I've tried the latest WT DHF and DHR 2's with the same result. To be fair, I am a heavier rider (190lbs kitted up) but they get trashed very quickly when compared to my current choice, WTB. I'm running a 27.5 Breakout TCS tough fast 2.5 in the rear and the new Convict 27.5 tcs light high grip in the front. They have been a lot more durable, grip very well and able to withstand countless blows to the sidewalls. Not perfect but the best I've been able to find for our rocky terrain.
