If you want a bike that you can have fun with everywhere, yet also allows you to grow and progress as a rider, this is the ticket. Video description: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkK3gcdGdFk Everything on the bike was serviced following last season, including suspension, brakes, dropper, hubs, and was completely tore down, cleaned, re-greased, and rebuilt. Featuring: - An upgraded DVO Topaz shock: This bike deserves more than a Monarch. - Rockshox Pike at 150mm. - Angleset headset combined with a raised fork: Slackens out the front for a more capable bike while still preserving that legendary Process geometry. - DT350 hubs with WTB Asym rims. And those fancy WT Maxxis tires. Lots of new stuff: - All new drivetrain parts last season: New XT derailleur, new XT shifter, new XT cassette (11-46), new RaceFace crankset. And a new bottom bracket about a week ago. - The shock is new last season - The wheels and hubs are new last season - And how about the brakes? New last fall. - Tires? Last fall. - Pedals? Hah, plastic ones from the drawer. Don't ride on these pedals. Caveats: - It's a mountain bike and it has been ridden in the Canadian Rockies. So there are a few bumps and bruises. Though relatively few as the more tender bits have been covered in 3M since day 1. - Small flat spot in the rear rim. Still runs tubeless fine. - Rear tire has a repaired puncture. But that doesn't matter because I'll give you another rear tire. Honestly, this is the most fun I've ever had on a bike. It's no wonder these are legendary bikes. I've ridden this thing everywhere from Nose Hill to Whistler and it has been a party every time.

Video: Setting the Guinness World Records Achievement for the Greatest Vertical Descent in 24 hours
From 2014: "Our intention was never to set a world record that we thought would last. Mount 7 is the last place you would choose if your intention was the biggest possible number. There's no chairlift and it has a steep uphill that added 5180 feet of climbing to our day. The opportunity existed to start something official with Guinness and bring exposure to our sport, so we wanted to set the bar on a track that is notorious for its punishing nature and really defines what DH means to us. It can easily be beaten elsewhere, but we hope to see someone try to take the title where it began; Psychosis on Mt 7. We'll even let you try it in the dry." - Mark Haimes By contrast, this record is the equivalent of those dudes who basically get Sherpas to carry them up Everest for a summit photo-op.

Have a giant mellon? Need a rad helmet? Well, good news because it turns out I bought the wrong size. This helmet is in new condition, having been ordered last fall and only used a handful of times (probably because it fit me like something worn by the Great Gazoo). It is free of blemishes as it has never seen any kind of impact. Also it is completely clean. Included are all of what you'd get with a new helmet - extra cheek pads, removable GoPro/light attachment, bag, and literature.

YT Introduces New Spec Levels, Colours & Sizes in 2019 Range
@Tr011: Yeah - I'm only familiar with the CAD pricing, but everything (with the possible exception of the lowest end model) seems to have gone up in price for us. It's funny because the higher end Capras are now quite in line with what you'd pay for a bike from a comparable brand on a sales floor. Brands that actually answer emails and warranty bikes. $6K CAD hits a lot of regular MSRPs (which most don't pay anyways...). Can't imagine why I'd ever buy a Capra without the savings normally associated with direct-to-consumer sales.
