What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
"There are compromises in almost all of those systems today because the majority of them were designed with a lot of constraints about making sure things weren’t too far out of the norm. But like we found with Eagle technology drivetrains, sometimes the best solutions out there are the ones that don’t necessarily follow the norm. So we looked at it from a clean slate and asked ourselves how we would design a new platform of cranks/BBs to have the benefits of both 24mm and 30mm systems today, but still be compatible with all the major frame shell standards in the market." It seems like this new diameter has a major constraint since it is constrained by needing to be compatible with PF92.

I am selling a 150X12 Hope Pro 2 Evo rear hub. It was used for 2 years on my dh bike. All bearing are still smooth and I recently cleaned the ratchets as well although they really did not need it. I sold my dh bike and now have no use for this hub (the rim was pretty much trashed from too many rock strikes). Freehub is a little chewed up from the small cogs that were not on a carrier but does not affect the function of the hub (pretty much any used hub with an alloy freehub will be chewed up a bit). I accept paypal or cash for a local pickup. Buyer pays shipping. Hub is located in Gainesville, FL. Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions 352-246-1370. -Brett

I am selling a DVO Jade rear shock. It is the 8.5X2.5 size and has been used sparingly for one year, most of which I was living in Florida so I rarely rode the bike it was on (Canfield Balance). It does not come with a spring although if I happen to have one that will work for your weight I will be happy to include it for no extra cost. I think I was running a 450lb spring. All adjustments work as they should and the shock has no scratches or damage. I accept paypal or cash for a local pickup. Buyer pays shipping. Shock is located in Gainesville, FL. Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions 352-246-1370. -Brett

I am selling a Manitou Dorado with the IRT air spring and the bleed caps on the top of the fork to vent air. Fork will come with the stock caps as well. The fork is technically the 26" version but will fit 27.5 wheels no problem and can even run 29" if you essentially put in a big bottom out bumper. The fork was regularly serviced (oil and seal changes) by me. Fork also comes with 2 sets of extra seals and a seal driver to make changing the seals super easy. It was obviously on my downhill bike which I sold frame only a few months ago and as such was not ridden that much even though it is two years old. The fork comes with an easton direct mount stem. I accept paypal or cash for a local pickup. Buyer pays shipping. Fork is located in Gainesville, FL. Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions 352-246-1370. -Brett

I moved to Florida from the mountains of Virginia and cannot justify holding onto this bike any longer. I thought I would make it back up to ride more at the bike parks but it has not been happening. Plus I have a Balance that is fine for park duty anyways. This bike is a size XL Canfield Jedi, with a nice and modern 18" reach, so more in line with most size L bikes of 2017. It has a Manitou Dorado with the IRT air spring and the bleed caps on the top of the fork to vent air. Fork will come with the stock caps as well. Zee rear derailleur, xt cassette with 3d printed custom spacer to make is a 7speed cassette, 10 spd saint shifter, cane creek 40 headset, easton havoc stem, Answer protaper 780 bars, thomson seatpost, wtb seat, dtswiss 440 front hub, dtswiss fr600 front rim, hope pro2 evo rear hub, wtb i25 frequency rear rim (it is pretty beat up but still holds air tubeless), saint cranks w/ 36t raceface nw, mrp guide, maxxis dhf skinwall and shorty tires, and 203mm rotors but no brakes or pedals. Bike comes with cane creek double barrel air and double barrel coil shocks, both of which still work fine but are probably due to be serviced at some point in the near future. Also comes with a variety of coil springs for the shock, (300lb, 400, 450, 500 I think). Bearings were replaced in 2016 and all seem to still be working fine. Fork was regularly serviced (oil and seal changes) by me. Fork also comes with 2 sets of extra seals. There are a couple small dents in the downtube and a small dent in the seat stay as well. I tried to capture those in the pictures. Full specs can be viewed here http://canfieldbrothers.com/archive-frames I accept paypal or cash for a local pickup. Buyer pays shipping.

Manitou Mcleod rear shock in 7.875X2.25 size. Super sweet shock, that I prefer to Fox Floats or Rockshox Monarchs. I would estimate is has about 30 hours on it. Only selling it to get a 8.5X2.5 to fit my new bike. It was on an 2015 Canfield Balance and I have recently gotten a 2016 Balance that takes a larger size. I accept paypal or cash in person and will ship at buyer's expense (probably $15).

This is a Cane Creek Double Barrel Coil Climb Switch rear shock in 7.875X2.25 size. It currently has a 500lb spring on it. It will not come with reducer hardware but it will come with bushings. It has low use, probably about 20 hours. I ran it on a Canfield Riot which I sold. I will consider trades for decent hardtail 29er frames in either a size XS, S, or L. I accept paypal or local pickup. Will ship at buyer's expense (probably about $15).

The Tuesday Tune Ep 9: Single Tube and Twin Tube Dampers - Video
Thanks. I really enjoyed that. Why doesn't anyone use a twin tube design with shim stacks instead of poppet valves? Is it simply space constraints?
