Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 799 MSL

$1400 USD
2015 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 799 MSL Frame/Fork/Extras Solid bike, no issues, one small chip in the upper chainstay from being loaded carelessly in a truck(see pic). Otherwise in great shape. See frame specs/geo at Whats included, Frame: 2015 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 799 MSL Shock: Stock Fox Float CTD Remote Kashima Fork: Fox Float 32 Evolution 130mm Extras: Thompson seatpost, seatpost clamp, Fox remote/splitter, bottom bracket, f/r axles. rear brake hardware and some misc. frame hardware. I've enjoyed this bike, when I bought and built this bike up in 2016 (got it to 22lbs) and i rode it on and off for the past 2 years. Never raced, but took out on long epics mainly. All and all it has been a fun bike, but it was too slack/enduro for long distances. I'm young and my knees are fine so i'm back to a hardtail.

IMBA Opposes Bill to Allow Mountain Bikes in Wilderness
After reading this and all these comments, I feel the need to agree with the IMBA. Its a conservative stance. Sure we all want more trail access, but allowing bikes in wilderness should be determined on a case by case basis by the local USFS reps and input from the community. If this bill was to backfire and/or something undesirable was tacked onto this bill we could loose access FOREVER in even more places. Our gov reps. should be concerned with more pressing issues anyway.

Huck Norris Tire Insert - Review
This would be ideal for cyclocross tubeless! Although closed foam from the hardware store would do the same thing ... Arts and craft time!

Trickstuff Deckele - Review
This review lacks comparison to conventional compression style starnuts most commonly used for carbon steer tubes. It is not uncommon for stock starnuts of this style to weigh in excess of 65g. Even for this extreeme comparison even 50g (.11 lbs) is not a huge amount of weight loss, especially after eating a 1/2lb burrito, but dollar/gram it's hard to beat this kind of upgrade especially for the road bike. With this said my mountain bike, using a standard starnut and an AB top cap/bolt I'm at ~15g.

What's the Perfect Tire Width For All-Around Riding? - Pinkbike Poll
So I'm assuming trail riding refers to 650b/27.5 for a wheel size? For this size, 2.3 is good and 26 I'd add an inch and 29 I'd subtract one for a general rule of thumb. Also this is relevant for the Pacific Northwest, sizes would be different for other areas of the world.

You Don't Need to Learn on a Hardtail - Opinion
In my opinion everyone should start out on a decent 26er fully rigid SS hardtail, with flats, and work their way up. This recommendation has never been the kind of thing that I would recommend to a new rider out of spite or tradition, it is simply due to the skills that can be gained; learning lines, being light on the bike, standing, lifting your front wheel up, and so on. Also there is less of a learning curve when it come to maintenance. There are no excuses; sure some will complain of back problems or old age, but these are excuses of those with a feeble mind and body and could be corrected with the kind of bike I describe. This article is a load.
