Rocky Mountain Slayer - 750 MSL + Upgrades

$3500 CAD
Didn’t get what you want for Christmas? This bike has been nothing but great to me over the past few years. It’s all in working order and it’s still charging through rock gardens and popping off jumps happily. It’s living a great life, but it certainly looks like a used bike. It’s got paint chips and all sorts of cosmetic wounds. Think of these scratches on the bars and chips on the downtube as stories the bike has from a past life. It’s got some scars but it’s still a happy enduro bike that’s ready for its next chapter in life. In addition to the bike, I’ve got some spare parts to give you! You’ll need these eventually if you decide to live with this bike for a while. Here’s what I'll throw in with the bike for the right price: - 2 new (still in package) 2.5" Maxxis DHF tires (over $200 value) for the bike when the current tires wear out - 1 new (still in package) Shimano 11 speed chain (over $70 value) for the bike when the current chain reaches the end of its life - 2 new tubes (not in package, but never inflated) for the bike if some oopsies happen out on the trail Although when it was stock it was a 750 MSL spec Rocky Mountain Slayer, I’ve given it some upgrades over the years: - DT Swiss FR560 rear wheel: You may notice the wheels don’t match. The stock rear wheel came into contact with the wrong rock at the wrong time and ended up with a gnarly dent. Perhaps my line choice wasn’t the best. With this new wheel, precise line choice isn’t as necessary. This wheel is indestructible! - OneUp Dropper Post V2: I needed a tall-people dropper post, so I got something with 210mm of drop! For reference, I’m 6’2” and I have the dropper post up a fair bit. If you’re shorter you could easily just lower the dropper post into the frame and it’d happily accommodate your height. I really like the tall dropper post because it gets the seat out of the way (way more than a 150mm dropper) when you’re descending. - Shimano Saint brakes: Sometimes you need to slow down in order to go fast! These are outstanding brakes that will stop everyone, even if you ate a bit too much on Christmas. - Shimano Ice Tech Rotors: These rotos have been great to me. They have given me consistently excellent braking performance from the top of the bike park to the bottom. - Nukeproof Sam Hill Flat Pedals: I really like these pedals. I don’t know if I want to give them up… we can talk about it though if you want them. Over the years, things happen. As you take a look through the pictures you’ll see some cosmetic paint chips, scratches, etc. Here’s a few oopsies of note that you should know about before buying the bike: - On the fork, at the top of the stanchion, there’s a bit of a scratch from a crash. It looks worse than it is. I’ve had local bike shops take a look at it, smooth it out a bit, and tell me it’s good to go. If you run your finger along the stanchion, you can't feel any kind of scratch. It doesn’t impact how the fork feels or moves through its travel. The seals are pretty happy too for a regularly-maintained fork of that age. - On the rear wheel, there’s one bent spoke. I’ve attached a photo of it. The wheel still runs pretty darn true and straight. - On the front wheel, the hub is a bit grouchy. I wouldn’t say it’s crunchy… but it’s kind of crunchy. It spins fast and doesn’t make any noise, but it can feel a bit vibrate-y if you hold up the bike and spin the wheel. When you’re riding, it isn’t noticeable. The bike shops I’ve asked about it have all said it won’t get worse and that it doesn’t really matter if it doesn’t bother you. - On the frame, there’s paint chips and rub marks from the bike rubbing against tailgates. It looks like a used bike, but you’ll get it for the price of a used bike! This bike is eager for its next chapter in life. Message me here on pinkbike or shoot me a text if you’re interested in coming to take a look at the bike. If this ad is still up, the bike is available.

How do I submit a video for future weeks of this post? I've got a big project that I'm working on that I think the community would find entertaining. Is there an opportunity for user-submitted videos?
