Carbon Wheels That Cost Less - Taipei Cycle Show
I'm at around 5000 miles of hard riding on a set of their XC 21x27mm 29r hoops with no issues. My riding weight has been from 200-250 lbs and they're still true. I now have them laced up to a set of the new Sram XO boost IS hubs using Sapim CX-Ray spokes with the build weight being @ 1450g. www.light-bicycle.com makes a great product at an extremely good price. I really have enjoyed their wheels since my days on a 26in sled. If anyone is worried about getting a set look at the cheap Chinese carbon fiber thread on MTBR.

I have 9 months of ride time on this fork and have 12 hours on the fork since the last oil and seal change (seals are the brand new SKF low friction model)(https://www.shockcraft.co.nz/fox-34-mm-fork-seal-kit-skf.html). It came as a 120mm but I wanted more travel so I got the longer 130mm damper from Fox and also added 1 more yellow air damper spacer just an FYI as well this fork can be set up with the 140mm damper. I've been running it at 58psi with fairly fast rebound and 2 clicks of LSC in full open and 5 yellow air volume spacers. It's an awesome fork and as with all of my items my loss or better yet expensive tastes are your gain. It comes with the stock 15x100 axle as well as the Fox KABOLT race axle, the 120mm damper (can be changed using a 26mm chamferless socket), the remaining single yellow air volume spacer, and the factory tuning booklet. I've been anywhere from 215-245lbs riding weight and this fork has held up very well under me. I have been religious with oil and seal changes and there are no scratches in the Kashima Coat finish or signs of wear. This is the same damper as the boost 110mm version and feels the same as the boost version. I'm only selling because I got a deal on the boost version and a deal on a new front Sram XO boost 110 IS hub. 7 11/16" steer tube left and the star nut is undamaged and straight. This is the same fork offered on the Ibis Ripley LS and the YT Jefsy 29. It has the lower headset race installed properly as seen in the provided pictures. All knobs work perfectly and are not damaged at all. There are some small signs of use but nothing causing this fork to perform any less than a brand new one. FOX Isolated Technology Now in its fourth generation, our patented FIT4 (FOX Isolated Technology) closed cartridge system provides three on-the-fly compression damping positions—Open, Medium, and Firm—to adapt to varying trail conditions. Factory Series forks feature an additional 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjust in the Open mode, allowing riders to fine-tune their exact damping preferences. The FIT4 cartridge damper was redesigned based on our award-winning HSC/LSC damper, resulting in a much higher performing damper across all forks. This year, the FIT4 damper received an updated tune that provides more sensitivity while maintaining support. FLOAT AIRSPRING Patented Air Transfer Port System The FLOAT air spring system developed for 32, 34 and 40 is lighter and reduces the force to initiate travel, providing excellent sensitivity and small bump compliance for all riders and pressure settings. Similar to our FLOAT rear shocks, the new FLOAT system features positive and negative air springs that automatically equalize during use to give each rider the right pressure balance. The progressiveness of the spring curve can be adjusted via air volume spacers, allowing riders to fine-tune the feel of the air spring. PayPal or cash in hand and shipping within the Continental USA only.
