FOX Talas 36 RC2 4" -6" Travel

$100 CAD
2007 Fork, serviced regularly by Suspensionwerx in North Van. Shows its' age - chipped paint on lowers and crown, cable wear on crown. Uppers are clean and scratch-free though. 1 1/8" steerer tube (about 8" long), 15mm axle. Adjustable 4" - 5" - 6" of travel, high speed/ low-speed compression damping adjustment, rebound adjustment. Would work well for an all mountain/enduro bike, I used it for more freeride, but I'm a lightweight.

FOX DHX Air 5.0 7.875" x 2.25"

$100 CAD
2007 shock, serviced regularly, all by Suspensionwerx in North Van. 2013 new air can, 2015 new shock body. Found crack in my old frame just after getting it serviced in June 2015 so it hasn't been ridden since. I meant to put it up for sale earlier but was otherwise pre-occupied (read: lazy). Propedal (incremental lock-out), high speed/ low-speed compression damping adjustment, rebound adjustment, and adjustable volume piggyback (bottom out resistance). Would work well for an all mountain/enduro bike, I used it for more of a freeride shock, but I'm a lightweight. No wear on the shock. Has some misc. mounting hardware attached (for an '07 Norco six) but I doubt that'll be of use to anyone.

VP Components Harrier Pedal - Review
I can't comment specifically on Banshee's bushing situation, as I haven't done any reading on it. But I can say that there are multiple big names in the bike scene that I know for certain (I know someone in technical sales who has been selling bushings to some of these companies) who are moving to bushings in some or all of their lineup. These include Giant, Norco, and Rocky Mountain. As bushing technology continues to improve I think we''ll see a majority of the market move to bushings.

VP Components Harrier Pedal - Review
Putting the TL;DR first: You need to do a tiny bit of research before posing a question like that. You are wrong, bushings are good, bring on bushings. Bushings are self lubricating by design: metallic bushings are sintered (metal dust pressed together at high heat) and soaked in oil, the oiled gets held in the tiny pores and releases itself through the life cycle of the bushing. Synthetic bushings (like the ones in the found on bikes) are also made by compressing material into shape while being subjected to heat, but they have graphite dust added into the main material, graphite is an extremely good dry lubricant, and again new graphite is exposed as the bushings wear. In applications such as pedals and suspension pivots, good bushings actually fare far better than good bearings. In pedals, where there is lots of impact action, the balls in the bearings can form flat spots that lead to bearing play and accelerate wear rates. In suspension pivots, the small, irregular, and fast angular movement of the components means that bearings often do not move enough for the balls to actually start rolling, instead the bearing is relying on the grease packed into it, this also leads to premature wear and failure. Finally, bushings have HUGE benefits over bearings when considering max load capacity to weight ratios. Source: 3 years of Mechanical Engineering school.

Brendan Moon's Bilt Eight DH Racer
Don't understand people knocking a pretty badass looking bike. Looks bombproof to me, and I'm a fan of that. Kinda cool to see an elliptical ring on a DH sled too.

The linkage system is not a rip off of Knolly, these bikes do not have the parallelogram link. This design is just a 4 bar linkage with an uninterrupted seatpost and a shock yolk. Same style suspension as older Norcos, but slacker, cleaner, and with an axle concentric pivot.
