GT Vengeance 1998

$500 CAD
Rare 90's GT Vengeance Hard to size due to the style of bike but I'm 6' tall and it seems like a good fit. The effective top tube (center of head tube to the center of the seat post, not the seat tube is 56") Full Ultegra / Dura Ace rear derailleur The bike had some death trap 650c Spinergy Tubulars on it when I bought it. I built up some Velocity rims / Novatec hubs / butted spokes with silver and red alloy nipples / Conti GP 4000 clincher tires. The wheels have one ride on them. The bike has minimal use. The drivetrain is pretty well 'as new'. The cassette has one ride on it. Bike mechanic owned. I have the front brake on the right lever - British style. I'm not inclined to swap it over to be honest. Something to factor in though if you are interested. Bottle cage included but not the saddle back or pump. Might be up for a trade. Either something retro, either a more 'normal' road bike (could be a project / abandoned in the back of the garage but interesting in some way....), or retro MTB of some sort? Or maybe you have something non-bike related that I've never thought of. Ideally cash though but you never know.....

Bontrager Line Dropper 31.6 / 150mm - brand new

$200 CAD
As per title - brand new and boxed. Comes with lever and cable / housing. I have another and no need for this one too. Updated over the 2018 and earlier Drop Line with better sealing. The one on my bike still looks and works like new.

Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
Ben, I think around 5 people at the shop that you briefly worked at in Canada run I9 hubs and no-one runs Onyx. I like Onyx hubs but silence isn't everything. Weight and reliability are also important.

Review: Cannondale Jekyll 29-1
@Boardlife69: Funnily enough I remember RHS at Bike Verbier doing 3 hour climbs on his Orange 224.

Update: What's Going On With Shimano's New XTR Group?
@snl1200: I don't own them but have serviced them / test ridden them enough times and as such can be pretty subjective, and they certainly have a slightly soft feel to them. Very similar to the likes of a Shimano Alfine hub (also clutch based but different design). Whether that's an issue is up to the individual. I want to love them as the technology is pretty cool but......I don't.

7 of the Best Mountain Bike Lights Ridden & Rated
As an old fart who used to clamp on 4 Ever Ready Xenon plastic lights (after removing my bar ends....) and go night riding, I find it hilarious that a 1200 lumen light is now a commuting light ha ha.

Interview: Juliana Bicycles' New General Manager Elayna Caldwell
I was amazed by that comment. For people who are buying a new bike every year (and there are a lot around here) if buying one brand of bike means saving $500-1000 when it comes to selling it, that's a big deal. Plus you have the satisfaction of owning what other people think of as a desirable bike when you own. It doesn't bother me personally as I get deals, but I know it's an issue. Reminds me of my auto days and realizing why there are so many BMWs on the road. Residual values are high which means monthly lease figures are actually quite competitive compared to other brands. Compare that to the likes of Vauxhall who have similar priced cars but have to offer huuuuuge bonuses to the leasor in order to get attractive rentals.

Bike Check: Aaron Gwin's Intense M29 FRO
Hope have made 225mm rotors since the dawn of time (or the dawn of the 2000's at least).

The Evolution of the Santa Cruz V10
It'd be interesting to put a wide bar, decent brakes and tires on all of them and compare times. Probably a logistical nightmare though!

Video: Sounds from Red Bull Hardline Become a Dance Music Track
One is an exercise in making the sounds sound the same. And the other is an exercise in manipulating the sounds so they are different. Which is the whole point.
