Pipedream Sirius S5 - Long/Medium

$800 CAD
I'm selling a Pipedream Sirius S5 frame only. The frame will come with a headset, rear axle, and seattube clamp. I take great care of my bikes and have quite a few so this frame is in excellent shape. No crashes or damage. However, there are normal marks and wear/tear from trail riding. I loved this frame so much I bought two so I could ride one with gears and one singlespeed. I've got limited garage space and I'm riding a new rigid bike as my singlespeed rig so I need to sell on of the S5s. I live in Comox, BC and this frame has seen action all over Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. It's great for flowly blues all the way up to techy blacks. For about a year my two S5 bikes were the only trail bikes I rode and they handled everything really well. The steel frame has a great ride quality and isn't overly stiff [which I hate], but stiff was strong enough to make me confident riding steep techy trails. HTP S5 Review --> https://youtu.be/f1VJ0UtwhFI Bikepacking.com S5 Review --> https://bikepacking.com/bikes/pipedream-sirius-s5-review/ I'm 5'11" and rode this frame with a 35mm & 50mm stem. It fit me well, but I am at the upper end of the size range and enjoy smaller bikes that are more agile. I ran it with a ~180mm dropper. I can sell you this frame with geared or SS dropouts. Price is $800 firm. The landed cost with shipping and taxes was $1400. I will ship at the buyer's cost. The frame will be well packaged. Note 1: I am selling a frame only. It will come with a headset, rear axle and seattube clamp. Note 2: Bare frame photo is from when I got frame new from Pipedream. Note 3: Tech specs, Geo & Sizing provided in photos.

Jesse Melamed & Jack Menzies' Canyon Bikes Stolen from Team Van Just Outside of Vienna
@BiNARYBiKE: Exactly the reason that instead of plastering the outside of my truck's cap with bling bike stickers I got some commercial signs made that say "Ed's Dog Poop Collection Service - Our service is shit!" I can park at any popular MTB destination and nobody bothers my truck.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Need Downtube Storage?
I'm riding steel frames so I might be able to get a peperoni stick inside if I had internal frame storage. Doesn't seem worth the bother. I can just tape on to my bars for an emergency snack.

First Ride: Knolly Chilcotin 6.0
@BermJunky: Yup. I build custom quality wheels and it's pretty rare a wheel dies in action so they move across frames.

Wolf Tooth Announces ReMote 360 Dropper Lever
My first two droppers from Crank Bros back in 2008/9 came with these remotes. They worked fine. In fact the remotes were the best part of those droppers!

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Which Saddles Pinkbike's Editors Put on Their Own Bikes
I haven't used an adult diaper on a bike in years whether it's a 2hr or 12hr ride. The key is finding a saddle or two that fits your butt. I'm a lot more comfortable now than I ever was in my chamois decade+.

Review: Vittoria's 50g Air-Liner Light Promises Run-Flat Protection For XC & Trail
No. I have run Tannus Tubeless inserts in the rear of my HTs with Stans for a few years now and no issues with sealant drying out early.
