I like bikes. I can ride them fine, but I fix them better. I'm one of the few that can make a decent living doing what I love. Emphasis on decent. It's adequate, but not enough to fund the eccentric lifestyle I thought I would be living.

Rocky Mountain Reaper with 26" wheels

$1400 USD
I'm selling this for a good friend. It's his son's bike. It's a 2018 Rocky Mountain Reaper. It's build is the Reaper 24 stock build but the 24" wheels were swapped for 26" wheels and it has a KS e20i dropper. If you don't know about the Reaper, it's a full-suspension bike with 130mm of travel designed for kids. The bike was designed to accommodate 24" and 26" wheels so you don't have to buy a new bike the year after you buy it because your kid hit a growth spurt. The bike is still in great shape because his son didn't get to ride nearly as much as he would have liked because he's so involved in team sports. Tires and brake pads still have lots of life left and overall condition of the bike really is excellent. I didn't notice any significant scratches or chips when I was cleaning it up to sell. If you need 24" wheels and tires, he has those also and would be willing to sell them with it for a bit more. If you don't want the dropper post, we could work out a deal with a standard post. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
@lemonaid: It doesn't sound like the new freehub will be compatible with old Shimano hubs at all. No word on the DT Swiss, but looking at how it goes together it sits differently inside of the hub shell. It could be backwards compatible, but just not in the Scylence configuration.

Pedals for Groms: Spank Spoon 90 vs. Chromag Radar - Review
@THE-EDJ: That's what I thought you meant. However, I worked at a shop that still had a few of the cheap clipless pedals that came on Cannondales in the late 90s and early 2000s because no one wanted them. They had a full bucket. So no pedals are better than cheap pedals. But it is nice to have a bonus set of otherwise useless flats for the commuter.

Szymon Godziek Backflips Tour de Pologne On a Road Bike - Video
I think many are overlooking something pretty important here. Is Pologne pronounced the same as Bologne, but with a P?

You're talking cheap pedals that come as original equipment on bikes, right? I had a friend that tried to put the $20 Wellgo pedals on his Kashima'd Pivot Firebird. I eventually talked him into at least going with some discounted VP AIMs. Even he said he noticed a difference beyond how capable the bike was. Pedals are importantest.

As a former fat kid, I would argue that these pedals are less expensive. I can't tell you how many bowls of cocoa and fruity pebbles I went through while watching MTV and Nickelodeon. Cable TV alone cost more and it had a huge contribution to my childhood obesity.

Kali Interceptor Helmet - Review
@passwordpinkbike: Not in this case though. It is actual safety features. Usually it is weight and comfort.
