Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt BC

$3000 USD
Bike is in amazing shape. The only disappointing thing about the bike is the paint, as you can see on the stays it wore through from shoe rub. Eventually I got wise and covered it in 3M tape, but these spots are here as a reminder to always do that when the bike is brand new. The Build, in my humble opinion, is dialed. You could shave a few grams here and there if you wanted, but I tried to get this thing as light as possible without giving up performance or spending silly money. Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt BC frame. all pivots serviced, and no rides on it since. Fox 34 factory series (currently set to 140mm, because the 34 has a lower stack height than the 130mm pike that came with the bike) Float X factory series - Just back from Fox for a rebuild with not a single ride on it. Fox Transfer seatpost i9 Enduro 305 wheelset with black an blue spokes. True and ding-free with fresh bearings front and rear, no rides on the new bearings Race Face Next SL G4 cranks new with just a handful of rides, 36t chainring. Race Face Next SL bars uncut at 760mm Race Face 60mm stem New tires - Muchelin Wild Grip'r (0 rides) and Mavic Crossmax 1 ride XT Brakes XTR Shifter/Mech XT Cassette New sram chain ODI AG1 grips If you want a lower price I can swap in some of the original parts including Stans Flow EX wheels (with XO1 cassette because it has an XD Driver), RF Turbine Cranks, and a RS Debonair shock. All are in good condition.

Trek Session 8

$2000 USD
Disclaimer - I bought this frame with the headtube slightly out of round (.02mm) and with the stock headset not sitting snuggly. I replaced the headset with one from works that sits 16mm deep into the frame (as opposed to 8mm on the stock FSA), and installed it with Loctite 660 gap filler. It's since been through a season at northstar and a trip to whistler, so I have total confidence in it, BUT, if you want to change the headset for any reason, it's going to be a pain in the ass. Works headsets are top quality and they have easily replaceable bearings, but I don't want anyone to be surprised or go crazy wondering why the headset won't come out Trek Session 8, size large 2018 Fox 40 Factory 2017 Fox DHX2 Factory Works +5mm reach headset DT Swiss FR570 laced to DT swiss hubs with 54 tooth ratchet for quicker engagement laced up mid season 2017.

Ask Pinkbike: Whistler, Sprocket Size, and Capable XC Bikes
I have the TRS cassette with a 9t rear cog and a 28t up front. It's nice having a tiny ring, but when you are in 28:9, you get a lot more chain slap than with bigger rings because the chain sits so close to the stay. My Patrol has good protection on the stay, but it is super noisy

Here's My Zerode Taniwha Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
I'm not super picky about engagement, but even to me it feels like you've got a broken chain if you go for a quick pedal.

how is gearbox engagement? In a time where 3 degrees is common, the last gearbox bike I rode had more slack than the freecoaster on my old BMX

Team CRC Mavic Leave Downhill Racing to Focus on Enduro
CRC is mimicking it's customers. As more and more people decide they only need an Enduro bike, they decide they only need an Enduro team. I remember a time when the right number of bikes in the stable was N+1, now so many people seem to think it's just 1. Shameful. Want to save downhill? Get a downhill bike. Buy enough 4X bikes and we might even get 4X back!

Team CRC Mavic Leave Downhill Racing to Focus on Enduro
It's a shame for fans. EWS coverage is awful. You get some nice photos and raw footage, but it doesn't feel like watching a race at all. I can't imaging how you could make it bearable for casual fans. Just look how stoked everyone was to see Sam Hill at DH world champs, it's because there you actually got to see him race.
