Burning Question: What's Next for Mountain Bike Helmet Safety?
Customizable fit, I am always in between medium and large and have a more oval than round head. I want to throw most helmets in the oven, soften, and squeeze the sides in to fit better .

This frame was way ahead of its time in terms of geometry, check the charts if you are into that sort of thing. It isn't a xc lightweight but in typical Kona fashion is built strong and an excellent descender that can still climb good. I tested several bikes before building this one and it was by far the best 29er I could find in 2012. This is no garage queen that is in immaculate condition. It has plenty of scrapes and bumps from being ridden all over the triangle and western NC. That being said it just had the frame bearings all replaced by a local shop and was given a clean bill of health and is ready to go as deep into pisgah as your legs can carry you. If you run the rebound near its highest setting the fork has a faint knock/creak in it but I had it checked out by a professional mechanic who also consulted with Fox and both determined it was nothing and told me to go ride it, not an issue when in middle to low setting. The shock was serviced just a few months back. The wheels have been hanging in the garage the last few years since I mostly ran a set of I9s so they are in great shape. Tires have tubes but their stans rims so converting to tubeless will be no problem. Let's start the bidding at $1275 and the first one to $5000 takes it home! Ok, maybe $5k is a bit much but $1275 seems very fair for a modern build kit on a very solid bike to me, of course always open to offers if you don't agree. Buyer to pay shipping and PayPal fees. If I missed anything just shout out your questions Located in Briar Chapel between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro, willing to meet around the triangle if needed

2012 Salsa Horsethief Frame Medium or 18" From the Salsa description: "Horsethief is a full-suspension 29’er trail bike, designed for all-day riding on rugged terrain. A very capable climber, Horsethief does have a slight bias toward descending, letting you enjoy the fruits of your uphill labor. By designing the bike for use with a shorter than normal stem, the body is positioned better for aggressive riding. The pivot-minimizing suspension design and 142 x 12mm Maxle dropout help keep the rear end tight and tracking well. Removing the rear pivot also reduces chassis weight, and reduces complexity and maintenance. Devour terrain. Conquer obstacles. Enjoy the ride. Horsethief. There’s a new sheriff in town." Used but in great shape. Some marks around bolt holes from being built and a couple chain nicks on the driveside stay but nothing worth worrying about. Otherwise in like new shape. Not pictured but I will throw in either the Salsa quick release seat post collar or an extra unused Kona standard clamp if you plan to use a dropper. Questions? otherwise start planning your build on this sweet ride!

Looking for a Pivot, Ibis, Turner but don’t have the cash? Here is your chance to ride the same dw link suspension but stay on budget. This is a great riding bike for about any terrain. It is not a garage queen that has never seen a trail. It has been ridden a bunch and scuffs, etc are plentiful but has also been very well maintained and nothing significant. I would jump on it today and ride as deep into Pisgah as my legs would allow. In an attempt to hold 29er fever at bay I put a bunch of new parts on it in the last year or so but alas the fever was strong and won out which is the only reason for selling. 2006 or 7? Iron Horse Azure Comp 26” Don’t recall the exact size but would guess 18-19” and fits me great at 5’10” so if you are close it will probably work for you. Specs: Reba Dual Air fork (serviced in the last year) Fox Float R rear shock (serviced in the last year) SLX rear der. 9spd and SLX shifter (about 8-9 months old) Avid BB7 brakes/rotors/pads front and rear (about 6 months old) WTB Pure V saddle (6-8 months old) Kenda Nevegal front tire and Specialized Fast track rear (a handful of rides each) Cassette, Chain, and middle front ring (a year or so old) WTB Speed Disc wheels Ritchey stem, bars, and post Salsa seat clamp WTB clamp on grips $575
