Liv Intrigue 2 size Small w/ Upgrades! Cheap! Buy now!

$1500 CAD
My fiancee wants a new bike and has tasked me with selling her old one. This bike HAS to go ASAP and we're open to offers. Why? In short, because while she loved this bike for a while, she bought it when she was fresh out of law school and just done articling. A couple of years of call later and she's riding faster, riding more, and frankly wants a bike that'll fit in with those her lawyer friends are riding. Much like a rescue puppy this 2016 Liv Intrigue, size small, is now in need of a new home. What makes this bike awesome? A lot. First off, it's been taken care of properly, including fork and shock seals. So it's actually ready to ride with minimal work on your end. It's been upgraded with a wide-range 1X10 drivetrain, which not only lightens the bike up quite a bit but also gets rid of that annoying front derailleur. But don't worry, the 42 tooth high gear at the back with the 30t narrow wide Race Face chainring means you've got all the gears you need to go up and down easily. Bragging Rights to the top of Merlin? You'll be spinning up without even breaking a sweat and bombing it on the way down. Worried about stopping? Don't be, we upgraded the brakes to Guide Rs, which modulate well and give you a lot more power than the stock non-series Shimano brakes thanks to their 4 pistons. Grip? You got it, courtesy of a nice 2.35 soft compound Nobby Nic up front and a faster rolling Nobby Nic in the rear. Shorter stem and wider bar with super comfy and colour-matched Race Face Half Nelson grips? Of course. Dropper post? Uh, so about that. Stock this bike didn't come with one. We've got a 150mm travel Giant dropper (slightly used and working super well) that we could sell you with this bike but it's a bit too long for the frame. I might be able to scrounge up a 100mm travel post for you, either way don't let the lack of a dropper become a deal breaker. We can work something out. We're very reasonable people, so we're very open to reasonable offers on this bike particularly given the lack of a dropper. No I won't ship to whatever sketchy, halfway to failed state country you live in, no I don't want to partake in your Nigerian inheritance scam, no I don't want your Xbox/PSwhatever but yes I'll deliver if you live in the Calgary/Kcountry/Canmore/Banff area. Make us an offer, let's find this bike a new home together.

Norco Search A Tiagra 53cm

$950 CAD
I'm once again selling a bike of mine. I'm running out of storage room and my loss is your gain. Read on if you're in the market for a great deal on a rad gravel bike. Truth be told I don't want to sell this bike. I recently broke my ankle, which means I have 2 months of injury rehab ahead of me and need a road bike. I love my Search but it's just not what I need for now. So it's up for sale and hoping to find a good home ASAP. Spec highlights as follows: - Full Shimano Tiagra 10 speed gruppo, minus the crankset and brakes. FSA crank w/ 48/31 subcompact gearing because you need that low 1-1 gear ratio when you're climbing on gravel. - Brakes? TRP Spyre C cable-actuated discs, which just happen to be the best cable discs money can buy. I'll even throw in a set of new pads because I'm a nice guy. - Carbon fork, because vibration damping and lightweight. - Don't like the bar tape? That's cool, I'm including some brand new tape with the sale. It's the courteous thing to do. - 40mm Clement tire up front (absolute max width that will fit) and a 32 mm Schwalbe tire in the rear just to make sure clearance is good. I've run this set up to commute on, ride gravel, and general drop-bar hooliganism without any issues. Not set up tubeless because Norco chose non-tubeless rims initially. Not sure why they did but I've had no issues so long as I've run decent tires. - No crashes, no damage, not ridden all that much. Always taken care of by excellent mechanics. This Norco Search A Tiagra is offered at $950 Canadian. No I won't ship to Nigeria, no I won't trade you for whatever video game system you're desperate to get rid of. But if you're a decent person and in the Calgary/Kananaskis/Banff area I'll probably deliver at no charge!

Whyte Bikes Win Legal Battle Against Haas F1 Team's Title Sponsor, Rich Energy
Winning is half the battle. Collecting on your judgment can be the hardest part. Given how little is known about Rich Energy it seems like Whyte Bikes might be in for a challenge. https://jalopnik.com/what-you-find-when-you-look-into-rich-energy-the-myste-1833303620?utm_medium=sharefromsite&utm_source=jalopnik_copy&utm_campaign=top

NAHBS 2019 Grand Finale Photo Epic
@zoobab2: definite similarities. Dekerf took it a step further with the custom painted fork. Both companies took inspiration from the famous Gulf livery known to motorsports fans everywhere. I’d love to see forks matched to more bikes.

The creativity evident in all of these builds is staggering. I wish colour-matched suspension forms like the one on the Dekerf were a more common thing and can’t wait to see what Allied has to offer the mountain bike market.

Pinkbike Announces Acquisition of Road Cycling Site CyclingTips
If this means Pinkbike gets James Huang content then I’m all for it. If this leads to Pinkbike polluting cycling tips, on the other hand, then no thanks. Hopefully Pinkbike can learn a few things from their new acquisition.

First Ride: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Pro Carbon
Nope. Sorry, the component difference doesn’t wash. I went ahead and doubled checked Canadian retail pricing on a Pike rct3 on Lambert (Canadian distributor for sram) and compared it to pricing for the Lyric, a fork I know from experience is comparable price wise to the Fox 36. I did the same for Guide R brakes VS Code RSCs. And same with the price difference for the shocks. All in all, $550-ish difference at retail pricing. Less than that at cost. Even if you give Fox a 10% price premium over RS it STILL doesn’t add up. Geometry? That’s technically free. It comes with the bike no matter what. R&D? Sure, that costs but it’s amortized over your entire product line (ie: $700 hardtails sold by the thousands subsidize the rest of the line up). There’s no excuse for this. It’s straight-up thievery. Don’t believe me? Go look at pricing for a Giant Reign Advanced 1. Carbon frame, GX Eagle, housebrand parts, comparable suspension and it’s $5299 Canadian. We can get nitpicky and upgrade the Code R brakes to Code RSCs for about $300, so call it $5599. That’s a difference of $3620, or enough money left over for another bike, or a trip to go ride somewhere for a week complete with luxurious accommodations. Or at least 10 heli drops in Revelstoke. Take your pick. I can guarantee that you won’t notice the “better geometry” during your luxury riding trip and/or your dozen heli drops. Not once will you think “damn if only I’d spent all this money I’m literally burning in heli fuel on a bike that’s $3600 more expensive than the one I’m on now”. “Geometry” isn’t an excuse for pricing a bike as if it’s an entry level Nissan Micra. @nouseforaname:

Put another way, what makes this bike worth $2300 Canadian more than the “regular” long travel 27.5 Stumpjumper with a comparable GX build?
