Shoes have less than 10 rides on them, maybe less than 5. they are too small so i cant use. These are my favorite shoes from Bontrager. they are light but you can still walk in them. They are super durable and the boa works great. These shoes also have a fairly recessed cleat position for how light and 'XC' they are. I have a set in 44 that fit me perfect. I have a high arch and the standard sole works great. these shoes list for 160 bucks. my loss is your gain. buyer pays shipping. US/Canada only please. thanks for looking!

2016 Session 88 size large. 650b. Miami Green. Bike is stock except the brakes cassette tires and chain. Bike also has these following parts that are either new or have less than 4 days riding on them: Fork, rear derailleur, rims, chain ( shimano), cassette (shimano tiagra), brakes, grips, tires (muddy marry, Bontrager SE2). The rest of the bike has two bike park vacations on it. Totaling about 10 days of bike park use. The fork is new because after the first bike park trip the OE fork had a defect and was replaced by SRAM under warranty. The brakes are no longer the code R. I was not pleased with avid/sram track record for brakes so i chose to sell the bike with shimano m447 brakes. this may be a place of upgrade for some buyers. but with the 200 mm rotors these brakes are reliable stoppers. The rims were also replaced with identical aftermarket replacements. The OE rims had weird bulging at the valves while this didnt bother for the time of my ownership i felt the rims should be replaced. The rear shock has not been serviced and may be something the buyer chooses to explore but i found the suspension to be consistent and smooth with out issue so i chose not to service the rear shock since it has so few hours on it. The suspension linkage is smooth and with out play or looseness. The rear spring has been bumped from 450 to 550. the sale will come with the softer spring. i am 175 lbs and the 450 spring was way too soft. however i felt the firm spring in the boxxer was way too stiff. so the fork has a medium spring. the firm spring will come with the sale as well. Other than what is mentioned above all the components are stock and everything is working 100 percent as intended. The bike does not have any mechanical problems. Cosmetically the bike is very good. no major points of rub or scratches and no dents or places that would be considered damage. the paint has a deep gloss like new. There are chips on the chain stay but only a few. So does the down tube. Selling the bike because i dont use it enough. Buyer pays paypal and shipping/packing fees. will ship to US/canda only. super clean house kept Session PM for any questions. thanks!

Hope HB160 - First Ride
@MTBrent: It has been predicted that mtb may go the way of the motorcycle mfg to mfg proprietary--ness. However, If anyone can pull off this first leap it would be Hope. Trek could too and so could Giant and Spesh, but they prefer to swing their big D and push the whole industry towards their new idea rather than just make it for themselves. One could argue either way as to what would benefit the masses and the industry the most.

2015 Trek Remedy 9.8 29er 18.5 inch frame. Carbon main frame and seat stays with magnesium rocker and aluminum chain stay. This is a 140mm travel 29er with a 68 head angle, 437mm chain stay and 432mm reach in the low position. The high position raises and lengthens these numbers. this bike would fit someone great between height 5'8" to 6'. Im 6 foot and ran it in the high position with a 150mm pike fork and a 70mm stem. This worked great for the more xc style trails in my area but was a little short feeling in the reach. This is first boost rear axle spaced frame! 12x148 rear spacing. This is the also the best bike for someone looking to make a 650+ bike (27.5x2.8) This bike has a higher bb than most bikes in its class thus preventing the horrible pedal strike problems current 27+ bikes have. Ok, lets try to make it quick. All of the bigger scratches are pictured. the frames paint has a nice deep gloss to it, but has numerous scuffs and swirls in the paint. this frame is mechanic maintained so all the frame bearings are perfect. yes this frame has absolute butter movement to it. no play, no noise, all smooth. the frame bearings have been replaced twice across all of its pivots. yes even those pesky little 8000 series bearings are smoother than on a new bike. It comes with two shocks. the original shock is the fox drcv re-active. It has has had one basic service and was used for the first year of ownership. the other shock is a RockShox Monarch Debonair rt3. it has had two basic services, one quite recently and it is also stacked with 4 tokens. this is the perfect shock for this bike. Check the pic of the chips of the frame bottom bracket area. these are the worst of the whole bike. These have been there for a year. Since there isnt any structural damage they have not spread/spider webbed. There arnt any soft spots or areas of structural damage on this bike anywhere. it is 100 percent structurally and mechanically sound. The add is for the frame and shocks, but i have also included some extras to help the buyer get this awesome rig up and going. pictured you will see the extra seat stay and shocks along with a Bontrager Pro stem and 780mm handle bar. also included is some frame parts for additional cable routing and bottom bracket parts (SRAM GXP). the frame already has a very good condition bottom bracket installed and a cane creek 40 headset. The bike has routing for internal dropping seat post and can be set up for internal routing on shift and rear brake. The bike also has brackets for external cable routing. I found the bike could be made to look very clean and current if you removed all this hardware and ran the cables/hoses internally and covered the holes with black electrical tape. If you have any compatibility questions for shifting and braking please let me know before committing to payment. i will not return the bike due to buyer error will ship to US/Canada only Thanks!

This is the latest generation of reverb available. These posts are more reliable than previous models and are rated for the 200 hour service interval. This post is no where near 200 hours since it was removed from the bike it was on since it was too long for the rider. It was purchased early in 2017. It works perfectly in every aspect. It does not have any play or the dreaded squish. The post depresses easily and smoothly and the speed of the return can be controlled at the remote from moderate to fast. The post is the stealth internally routed model and has 170mm of travel and is intended for use in a frame with a 30.9mm seat post standard. The hose is approximately 5.5 feet long and the remote is intended for right hand use, however it is very popular to use the right hand remote installed upside down on the left. This is the desired reverb remove configuration for riders with no front shifter. There is a scratch in the outside of the body of the post near the top. the scratch was filled and polished. scratches on the outside of reverb do not affect any of the internal operation of the post so this will not affect the reliability , function or reduce the service interval. I will only ship to US/Canada and buyer pays shipping. I will not accept a return because the post does not fit/work on buyers bike. If you have questions on bikes that are compatible please message me. thanks!
