Video: Evil Following Dream Build - A Little Big Bike
The original preference was for the black Performance uppers, actually, but you take what you can find these days...(and it's hard to complain when that's Kashima!) I'd still be keen to see what it'd look like all-black, but luckily for me the Kashima looks a lot better than terrible.

2018 Size Large Yeti SB6 Turq XO1 build, upgraded with Fox Factory 36 Grip 2 fork and Sram Code RSC brakes. Bike is exactly 30 pounds, as pictured, with pedals and Schwalbe Magic Mary tires. The Fox Factory 36 Grip 2 fork is, almost unquestionably, the highest-performing aggressive single-crown fork on the market, and the Code brakes give great stopping power--both of these upgrades made a huge difference to the ride. I've owned this bike for a year-and-a-half, but have spent lots of time on other bikes in the meantime and have only ridden this regularly for roughly half that time. The 36 Grip 2 fork and Code RSC brakes are only about six months old, and the bike has only been ridden regularly for 3-4 months of that time. I serviced the bearings and pivots about a month ago, and all is running quietly and smoothly. I can include a new set of tires. There are two cosmetic blemishes on the frame, one caused by shuttle rub and the other by rubbing from a tube strap. See photos, both are purely cosmetic. The cassette and chain are fairly worn out. The drivetrain still shifts and rides fine, but I would replace the two if I was holding onto the bike longer. This explains the low asking price. This is such a fast and fun machine, and I thoroughly enjoyed riding it every time I took it out to the trails. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions! Outside of San Diego, buyer pays shipping to the rest of the United States.

Brand new, in the box Giro Switchblade MIPS helmet in the matte white/grey color way. This helmet has never been worn and is just taking up space, so I'd love to get it to someone who'd use it. Make me an offer! Includes extra camera mount visor and cheek pads. From Giro: "The Switchblade™ MIPS is our new ASTM downhill certified full face helmet with a removable chinbar. Everything about the Switchblade is optimized for the descent, and that’s why it’s certified to CPSC, EN-1078 and ASTM-1952-DH with and without the chinbar. The chinbar is easy to remove—just push the buttons under the chinbar, rotate up, and remove—and it’s just as easy to reinstall. The Switchblade MIPS features the new Roc Loc® Air DH fit system, which has a bumper around the dial to prevent accidental adjustments if your helmet contacts your backpack or neck brace—all while keeping you cool. When the chinbar comes off, Wind Tunnel cheek pad ventilation adds even more cooling power as you start to climb. Plus, the full-cut style gives this helmet an aggressive look and provides ASTM certified coverage even when the chinbar is removed." Will ship anywhere in the US, buyer pays shipping.

Brand new, in the box Bell 4 Forty MIPS helmet in the matte/gloss copper/black color way. This helmet has never been ridden in and is just sitting around my house taking up space, so I'd rather get it to someone who'll use it. Make me an offer! Will ship anywhere in the US, buyer pays shipping.
