I have a pair of OneUp pedals for sale in excellent condition. There are a few cosmetic blemishes on the pedal body, but all are quite small and there are no deep scratches, bent pieces, or broken pins. I have too many pairs of pedals for the number of bikes I have, so these have to go. The bearings are still super smooth, pedals have only been ridden 10 times or so. $10 shipping in lower 48

Now Finished: Ask Me Anything with Trauma & Orthopaedic Doctor Henry Turner
Short of concussions, what is/are the top injury/injuries that mountain bikers most often have but neglect to treat? It seems like there's generally a culture of not seeking treatment for injuries unless something is very clearly broken or bleeding. Just curious what you've seen!

2018 Commencal Furious with a full custom build, all 2018 parts purchased new for this build. I bought the frame from Commencal and built from scratch then only rode the bike about 5-6 times last season and have not ridden it since. No cracks, dents, or other notable damage. Bike is is EXCELLENT shape and wouldn't look out of place on a showroom floor. Note that Commencal frames tend to run a bit shorter than some others. This bike is a large, and I would recommend for someone between 5'8 and 5'11, with flexibility in either direction depending on your preferences in fit. Build specs are as follows [ALL PURCHASED NEW IN 2018]: Frame: Commencal Furious, size L Shock: Fox Float X2 FACTORY, HSC/LSC and HSR/LSR. Fork: Fox 40 Float FACTORY RC2, with fresh lowers service with Fox 20wt gold oil. Includes extra tokens. Minor cosmetic damage to one of the stickers on the leg. Headset: Cane Creek 40 with brand new Hellbender lower bearing Bars: Deity Blacklabel, 25mm rise, orange. 787mm width. Stem: Deity Intake, 50mm length, orange Grips: Deity Knuckleduster, black. Includes one extra grip body as spare. Brakes: BRAND NEW NEVER USED 2019 TRP Quadiem with brand new pads, lightly used SRAM Centerline rotors Cranks: SRAM Descendant, 165mm arms, 36t ring. Upgraded to Wheels Manufacturing ABEC-3 Thread-Together PressFit BB (won't creak) Chainguide: E.13 LG1+, includes spare upper guide. Shifter: SRAM GX DH Derailleur: SRAM GX DH 7 speed Cassette: SRAM GX DH 7-speed Chain: new KMC X11 Wheelset: Spank Spike Race 33, brand new rear rim. Both wheels were just retensioned and trued. Front rim has a dent on one side, does not affect performance and wheel is still true Tires: Brand new Maxxis Minion DHF 3C MaxxGrip 2.5 DoubleDown casing front. Great condition E.13 LG1 Race rear. Both set up tubeless, rear with Huck Norris DH insert. Seatpost: Commencal Alpha Saddle: Deity Speedtrap, orange, CrMo rails DOES NOT INCLUDE PEDALS. I'm a mountain bike instructor and used to be a mechanic, so I'm obligated (and able) to keep my bikes in tip-top shape. All parts were purchased brand new in 2018 and are the 2018 model, the exception being the TRP Quadiem brakes, which are brand new 2019 product and have never been used. You can see in the photos that the bike has been protected with clear moto tape in high wear areas (e.g., top tube, downtube) Will deliver or meet buyer for sale in Western Washington. Buyer pays shipping (through bikeflights.com) and Paypal fees (3-4%) unless sent through "friends and family" or Venmo.

Chromag Announces Doctahawk, a Super Aggressive 180mm, 29er Hardtail
Everyone is missing the point of this bike. This is the sort of bike you take out on a Friday after work with your buddies, throw a beer in the bottle holder (2 actually, since this has 2 bottle holders. Surprised that didn't earn it instant PB points), and blow off some steam riding the gnarliest fall line shit you can find. Why 62* HA? Because F*ck it. Why 180mm fork? Because F*ck it. If you're looking for a practical daily driver, you probably wouldn't be spending $1700 on a steel hardtail frame anyways.

Review: Continental's Updated Trail King Tires Are Impressively Predictable
The Black Chili rubber really is awesome, not sure where all the hate for the rubber is coming from. Grips way better than just about anything else I've tried in the wet, which I'm quite familiar with here in the PNW. The part that I never got along with was the side knobs - they're just not substantial enough for a front tire. It's a good pattern for a rear tire, but the Baron up front is a better choice...I wish they made something in between.

Field Test: Scott Ransom
Scott just can’t get away from the extra buttons and levers can they... Every time I read a review by Paul, it seems like he’s comparing every bike to the GeoMetron, which he clearly loves. Comments always seem to center around “SA could be steeper, or HA could be slacker”. He’s clearly a very good rider, but also clearly has pretty extreme preferences, which always seem to come through in his reviews of DH bikes and bigger enduro bikes. Having ridden a GeoMetron around briefly, I can say that they’re beautiful, weird ass bikes - good weird for some, bad weird for others (me). Question to PB: are these reviews in the field test based on opinions of one dude (article author), or of several of the PB testers?

2018 Reverb Stealth with 170mm drop. Has been ridden for one season. Don’t need the post anymore but it works perfectly and the lever was just bled. 31.6mm diameter. Cable is plenty long, was mounted on a large Transition Sentinel. Includes the updated 1x lever and clamp, which is a massive upgrade over the old plunger remote. Includes bleeding edge fitting that you need for the lever, but no bleed kit. Message me with questions! Buyer pays shipping
