Ask Pinkbike: Bikes for Smaller Riders, & Saddle Suggestions
Second that- I got a SQLab “611 Active” saddle this spring and it is the shizz. Worth the high price.

Kona Process 111 DL Med, Two shocks, New Pivots

$700 USD
The Process 111 is a classic and I might regret selling this. Best bike I’ve had, fast and so fun. Kona killed the 111 line this year. Has been used as a mountain bike, so it has 3 minor rock dings, some cable rub, and paint chips/scratches. The rear triangle is pretty wide, so there is heel rub wear through the paint on the drive side seat stay. These are cosmetic issues only. No frame problems, B.B. shell is round and smooth in bearing lands. Good Cane Creek DB Inline Shock with low hours, and working stock Rock Shox Monarch RT3 included as spare. Comes with FSA ZS headset, rear Maxle, and Kona seat collar. Brand new Enduro pivot bearing kit just installed. Linkage is straight and smooth. 12x142mm Maxle rear axle, PF92 bottom bracket, ZS44/ZS56 headset, 31.6 seatpost with external and internal dropper post routing. 1x drivetrains only, no front derailleur possible. The geometry is sweet. I ran a 130 fork and know that many have run 140mm without issues. Can easily run an Aheadset for steeper seat and slacker head angles. Geometry with 120mm Pike fork: Top tube 610mm/24” Reach 435mm/17.1” Stack 608mm/23.9” Head angle 68 Seat angle 74 Chainstay 430mm/16.9” Standover 660mm/26” Wheelbase 1145mm/45.1” B.B. drop 35mm/1.4” Reviews: http://dirtragmag.com/trail-tested-kona-process-111-dl/ https://m.pinkbike.com/news/Kona-Process-111-DL-Review-2013.html PM on Pinkbike if interested. Lowball offers will be ignored.

Syncros Silverton SL One-Piece Carbon Wheels - Sea Otter 2018
Carbon fiber is a material that’s super strong in tension, not compression. Spokes are set in tension and in use see compressive loads. Carbon fiber is super strong until it sees impact forces, then it has unpredictable failure modes. Mountain bike wheels seem like a bad venue for full carbon.

Transition Smuggler Carbon - Review
The Scott Spark is a heavier duty XC bike, comparable to a Ripley IMO, and is not a good comparison for the usual Transition buyer. The new Kona Satori and Evil Following MB would be good counterpoints. The new Smuggler’s limited tire clearance is pretty much unforgivable these days. Maxxis 2.4s will be really tight there, too tight for mud.

Breeding the Ultimate Mutt Bike - Opinion
I kinda do this cross breeding on my own. Adjustable geometry is cool. I have a large Evil Following set in High mode with a minus 1.5 degree Works Components angleset. With 130mm fork it works out to about 65.9 HA, 74.7 SA, 440mm(ish) reach. For a Medium size rider that’s pretty good. It pedals well, has traction for days and feels to me like it has more than 121mm travel. Does not climb as well as my friend’s Ripley but way better than my Process 111. Descends, corners and handles chunk better than either one.

Topeak Shuttle Gauge Digital - Review
AccuGauges can be found for as little as $12. They won’t die after being left in a pack/garage/car for weeks and have a bleed button. One less battery can’t be bad. Brass and steel FTW. Digital seems nicer and possibly more accurate but these analog gauges still show half psi increments as long as you get a low range scale gauge (0-50 psi.)

Thömus Lightrider Dual-Suspension 29er at Stellenbosch World Cup XCO - Bike Check
Wonder how much faster these guys are when they don’t have to “worry about screwing up their shifts” on an archaic cable shifting system. I’d guess it’s zero much.

Prototype Wireless Electronic Drivetrain - Stellenbosch World Cup
Unneeded, expensive bling. XT M8000 with the coated Shimano cables is amazing, as in it works absolutely great in crappy conditions for long periods of time and won’t cost $400 if I break the derailleur on a rock. If y’all want this, go for it, but it’s way too expensive and complicated for an incremental gain. I’m happy to replace cables once a season if needed.
