One Ghost Musashi

$2350 USD
I'll start by saying I just turned 50 this year, so that should give you an idea of how this bike has been ridden. I like having nice toys, so I built this up with all top of the line components, and it really does exceed whatever I could do with it. But, at 50, and just starting a new business, I can't take the risks that I used to, so my DH days are over. I will say that I sold my Trek Session to get this bike, and without a doubt, a much better suspension design for the riding I was doing. The Trek was a little "nervous" going through rock gardens, and this bike feels much smoother through runs like that, more glued to the terrain. Don't ask me how it jumps, I don't jump. Size Large 19" 2013 One Ghost Musashi 2011 Boxxer World Cup - Rebuilt by Suspension Experts 20 hours ago Fox RC4 with 550# Ti Spring Saint cranks and Saint brakes Green Deity Dirty 30 bar (brand new, 4 hours on that) Easton Havoc Rim (have 3 rides on them) Schwalbe Muddy Mary tires (have 3 rides on them) Green Deity seat post and saddle MRP chain guide (3 rides on that too, I think you get the picture...) The bike is in Albany, NY and is currently at my LBS, CK Cycles. If you have questions, and want an unbiased answer, you can always call that shop. They can pack it up and ship anywhere in the US. If you're in Canada, I'll check on that for you. This isn't an entry level DH bike that was $3500 new, it's an expensive, well thought out build. But the first $2400 takes it, plus shipping of course. If you want to pick it up in the Northeast I'd be willing to meet someone within 2 hours of Albany. Feel free to call or text me, Rick

I wonder if Trek or GT knew this was coming out? I feel for the PR person who got the call on that soundtrack.

Manitou Sherman Breakout Plus, 170mm, 1.5"

$150 USD
This came off my 2004 Cannondale Gemini 2000, and is a solid performer if you have a frame to handle it. This has the 1.5" steerer with 8.125" left, so it should easily fit any frame you've got. This model had a travel reduction feature that cut travel from 170mm to 130mm, but that's not been working. I never used it, so I never took the fork apart to see what's up inside. It hasn't seen any use since 2008, so it's time to get it out of the garage. When I was riding it, it was a nice, smooth fork that soaked up everything in its path. For $150 you really can't go wrong... Cheers, Rick

Rock Shox Revelation XX Dual Air 150mm 26"

$350 USD
This fork has just over 2 seasons on it, and then I switched to 29ers. The lockout works great, and the dual air is perfect for dialing this fork in to your exact liking. It replaced a dual air Pike that I thought was nice, but this one being the XX version really made a big difference. I was running this on the front of my Ibis Mojo, and it was a perfect complement to that bikes rear suspension. I'd recommend it for any bike running between 125mm - 150mm of travel. The 20 mm front axle was stiffer than the rear, and lets you really put the front wheel where you want it. The maxle axle is super easy to get on and off, just a great system. The XLOC lockout works perfectly, very handy on climbs, and there's 7.875" of steerer tube left, and it's straigh 1 1/8, not tapered. Any other questions, just shoot me a message. I'll ship UPS in the lower 48 states, should run around $25. Cheers, Rick

Fulcrum Red Fire DH Wheelset 20 Front/150 Rear

$250 USD
These wheels have been great, a huge HUGE improvement over past wheelsets, which included Azonic Outlaw (bulletproof but so-so hubs) and Sun Equalizer 31's with American Racing hubs. The Sun's were a good wheelset, but built up for racing, and didn't hold up too long. The Fulcrums are just way smoother, spin and spin, and have a great buzz to the rear hub. You could definitely use them as race wheels, but I just had them for weekend fun on a Session 8 that didn't leave the ground much. The decals are shot, they got Stan's all over them and need to be replaced. There's one dent in the rear that I can't pull out, but I've only run them with tubes (last owner got Stans all over them, not me), and I haven't had an issue with the wheel hopping, or being out of true. Front has a small ding that could be pulled easily if you want, I don't bother with them if they don't pose a problem. Front hub is 20 mm thru axle, and the rear is 12x150 mm. I'll ship these in separate boxes to keep them safe, figure around $40 anyplace in the lower 48 states. Cheers, Rick

Trek Session 8 - Medium w/Elka Stage 5

$900 USD
This Session was the Vital MTB test bike that Spomer was given, and he evaluated and modified for a season. I got and it was just a bit too small for me, I'm 6', and went to a size large instead. Great bike, and very well proven on the race circuit, and this year was a really good all-around frame for racing/freeriding, just read up on Vital to see how it compared to the 2012 vintage frames. I didn't like the Fox rear so I put on a Trek tuned Elka Stage 5 (500# spring), great improvement. I don't race, don't jump big, I just like going to the mountain and DH riding for fun. I get out about 5 times a year, and I've got about 8 days on it. The only signs of wear are some chain rub, and some rub on the downtube where the frame rests on tailgates and gondolas. I also bought a carbon fiber down tube protector to avoid getting the big beefy downtube dented from rocks, etc. It's in perfect condition, not a single dent, that protector was a great $50 investment. I'm also including the headset, MRP chain guide, the Thompson seatpost, and the Dirty seat. If you need a set of cranks, let me know, I've got the original Race Face Atlas cranks/BB that came on it. I price all my gear very reasonably so that it moves quickly. Whatever UPS is going to cost is what I'll charge you, but figure around $40 for a box that size to anyplace in the lower 48 states. If you're interested in building this up, I've also got a set of Fulcrum Red Fire wheels listed. They looked awesome on this frame, and are a very fast set of wheels. Just didn't match the new frame, so they need to go too. Cheers, Rick
