We had gnarlier courses than that in 1989!

Kaos Seagrave To Miss Maribor World Cup Due To Lack of UCI Points
@TheBearDen: it's a logistical matter as much as anything. Even when DH was big(ger), there was no real scene around here. I remember a Neds race years ago, but there's just not much around here that can realistically or legally shuttled and raced on within a realistic drive. Compare that to the UK where one always used to be able to get to a race or uplift event within a couple of hours, 10+ years ago anyway. Also plenty of DH friendly areas like Stile Cop / Cannock Chase, Chicksands, Forest Of Dean etc where it was easy enough to push your bike back up to the top ready for another 2 minute rip. If you want to ride downhill fast, a DH bike is always going to be faster, and you don't need much of the tech that's in an 'enduro' bike. It wouldn't surprise me if there is a resurgence of DH in the UK. Not so much around here.

I need to start a 'reverse KOM' for the slabs around here. See who can go the slowest down them. At this rate there's going to be catch-berms at the bottom of all of them like the one put in on Boney Elbows over the winter.

19.5" frame (which in reality is around 18.5 due to Trek's weird sizing. It's a Large ;) ) Bought about 6 months ago. 3M taped XT brakes (4 pot up front. 2 pot in the rear. New rear pads and fronts are good) Brand new Bontrager carbon bar. 780mm wide. $220 MSRP. Brand new rear wheel with the upgraded 108 points of engagement in the freehub (the original rim had a minor defect but Trek warrantied the whole wheel) New OEM saddle. I stripped the bike down over Christmas and just checked it over again and it's in great condition. Fork lower and air can service done at that time. (Sram GX Eagle) drive train all good. Frame pivot bearings were good too. Set up tubeless. Only selling because I like this bike so much that I've bought the Remedy 9.8.... $4800 MSRP so $3800 with the upgrades.

As it's in a Provincial Park, maybe remove the names Brett? https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/bc-illegal-hiking-trail-fine-2018

Classic fork from when torsional stiffness didn't matter ;) Super light. 80mm travel. V brake / IS disc mounts. I used it briefly a few years ago on a bike and the seals were good, and the fork held air. Comes with an extra set of seals which I'm guessing might be rare by now, the shock pump adapter and a shock pump. I'd potentially take $100 if you just wanted the fork and none of the extras. Great for a commuter, retro project or bike for riding on smoother trails. No 10ft hucks to flat on this puppy!
