Reverb Stealth 170mm drop, 31.6mm dia., 1x remote

$250 USD
I have a like-new Rockshox Reverb 170mm drop with the new Rockshox 1x remote. This post came on my Transition Sentinel, but is unfortunately just a hair too long for me. I've tried making it work, but after 8 rides or so it's still a problem and I need to go shorter. Post looks brand new and is in perfect working condition. The new Reverbs have been super reliable, so this is a great deal on a great post.

Industry Weighs in on the Latest Round of US Tariffs on Chinese Mountain Bike Imports
@matadorCE: this. Every time a new product pops up on PB homepage and it’s cheap as hell, everyone promptly praises the company no matter where it’s made. Whenever Enve, King, or other domestically made-but-pricy products come up, people freak out and hurl old produce at their monitors. The concept of tariffs being a good thing is based on false assumptions. It assumes that people don’t necessarily want or need cheaper goods, and/or it assumes that there are suppliers in the US that can fill the void left by Chinese suppliers cut out by the tariffs. Neither of those things are true, and anyone who believes that US suppliers can turn around and deliver affordable, quality goods while paying their employees adequately is flat wrong, especially when tariffs on raw materials are adding to the pain. Companies like GG are awesome, but will get hit by raw materials costs, and ultimately none of their bikes can be considered in the realm of “affordable” for a rider looking to enter the sport, or for an enthusiast who can’t justify a $3k bike. Riders with the disposable income can, and should, speak with their wallets and buy quality, durable components made here in the USA. Durability means less need to buy new stuff, and ultimately is less of a burden on the environment relative to cheap, less durable goods. If you have the means, pay attention to “Made in _____” labels. Sadly, for the vast majority of riders that have added to the immense growth in mountain biking over the last decade, the lower end of the market is becoming inescapably less affordable due to protectionist policies without accompanying improvements in quality.

Review: e*thirteen's Updated TRS Race 29'' Tire
@BaeckerX1: As someone who lives and rides in the Pacific Northwest, I can tell you definitively that that's not true. A sign of a good, trustworthy rubber compound is that it grips on wet surfaces. If your comment is true, why do we even talk about wet weather performance of tires? Even while wet, well-worn granite in Whistler has pretty amazing traction. Maybe its confirmation bias, but reading comments (and the review) about wet weather performance makes me wonder how much of the incident may have been prevented with a more wet-friendly tire. Wood is a whole different story - you don't want to ride wood in the wet unless it's wired up.

Review: e*thirteen's Updated TRS Race 29'' Tire
I feel like I should chime in here. While it's hard to definitively blame a crash in bad conditions on a tire, I had one of the worst front end wash-outs I've ever had running a set of LG1r tires on my DH bike. I'm a very experienced rider who has religiously run Maxxis for years. I came hot into a rock drop at Whistler, which required that I come off slightly sideways and scrub down the 6' or so drop. The moment I hit the rock, my front tire was gone without even the slightest warning, and I fell of the 6' drop straight to my head, completely demolishing all of the clothing I was wearing including a brand new 100% Aircraft helmet. I was very luckily ok, but done riding for the weekend. Conditions were, as I mentioned, bad - raining hard. That said, the complete and sudden disappearance of front tire grip really shook me up. I rode the tires again in super dry conditions and they did pretty well, especially in fast and loose terrain where the massive side knobs were really helpful. That said, they're wearing astonishingly quickly, to the point that after my 3rd day at Whistler for the season they're nearly due for replacement. I never got to try the originals, but bummed that they changed what was by all accounts an exceptional tire into something that doesn't quite measure up.

e13 TRS Plus rear wheel, Boost, XD, like new

$280 USD
Like new e13 TRS Plus rear wheel. Takeoff from my Transition Sentinel. Ridden a handful of times when I first got the bike and has been garaged ever since. Rims are in perfect condition, at factory tension, and hubs are perfect as well. True, round. Super fast and positive engagement from the e13 hub, and the wheel is awesomely stiff due to the larger hub flanges. Buyer pays shipping, local pickup is free See E13's description as follows: The TRS hub's tall flanges in conjunction with the rim profile create a wide spoke angle for superior stiffness and cornering stability. Not only that, but its ultra-fast 6 degree engagment hubs won't leave you hanging to dry when exiting the corners on the gas. Finally, our hubs include a 1 year, no questions asked bearing guarantee, so charge ahead with confidence. Our TRS rim has received some significant profile updates, which include thicker sidewalls for better dent resistance, while the aluminum, CNC machined hubs keep things durable and value oriented. 30mm wide rims provide the optimal platform for larger enduro tires (read 2.1"-2.8") and all wheels come tubeless ready with tape and valves installed. Specs: Hubs Machined aluminum shell and flanges Rims Aluminum 28h, 30mm inner width Axle config Front: 15x110mm, Rear: 148x12mm Spokes/nipples Straight-Gauge Spokes with Brass Nipples X 28 Color Black

Crank Brothers Mallet E, black, barely used

$70 USD
Selling a pair of Mallet E pedals in black. They are in excellent condition, no crashes but a few very minor scuffs. I am a bike instructor and have to teach in flats, so I rode the pedals 3 times and then just got tired of swapping pedals back and forth. Full time flats for me now, but these are truly rad pedals. Includes very lightly used cleats as well. Bearings are like new. Also includes the stock rubber pads for optimizing shoe contact,

Five Ten Hellcat Pro, black, size 10.5, like new

$80 USD
Like new Hellcat Pro, size 10.5. I wore them 3 times total, but I am a mountain bike instructor and required to teach in flats, so I ultimately just never use my clipless shoes. There is a little bit of dirt on the upper, but the shoes are otherwise in like-new condition. These are the best quality Five Ten product I've seen to date, and I've been riding their stuff for years. Note that the shoes do not include cleats.
