    Yeah man, @rossage called it, lookn for something with a little more travel and 29er. Pretty much thinking I’m gonna go with the YT Jeffsey 29! Or maybe join the recent Hightower Craze!

    Really gonna miss this rig though. Such good memories shredding trails and epic rides with many of you in this bike!

    CR, you owe yourself a ride on a steep seat tube before you commit to something. :thumbsup:

    27.5 are just training wheels for the big boy 29 action.
    You read it here first.

    Great, you on a 29er as well as Burt? I could barely keep up with you on the baby wheels :(
    These are the bikes that have piqued my interest:
    Norco sight C2 29
    Evil following 29
    Scott Genius 920

    +1 on the Norco Sight. A friend in New Zealand has one. Says it's awesome. He tames Rotorua on it nicely. His videos are actually scary to watch!

    Haha! Appreciate the compliment but I am not in the same universe as @burt !

    All three bikes I have taken a look at as well as Transition @Mike. EVIL bikes are basically king up here. Lots of Transition too. You see them everywhere, naturally since they are based up in WA. I think I am pretty sold on the YT Jeffsey though. Hits all the points I am looking for, 140 front and back, geometry, and the Spec and build for the price is insane!

    Now back to selling this bike! Please keep an eye out for anyone in the market. :thumbsup:

    So bike successfully sold!! Gotta say Pinkbike is the best place to list a bike for sale. MTBR only brought out scammers that requested my name address ph number, and no paypal hmmm....

    Now have to ship the bike all the way to Sparta NJ! Anyone use Bikeflights? A local bike shop had an empty MTB box available. Packaged the bike up today and will ship tomorrow via fed ex ground using bikeflights.com. Cost w insurance is $80 which the buyer of the bike agreed to pay. I'm really gonna miss this bike but it's now time to move on. I got my moneys worth out of this thing ages ago, so it's a win for me!

    Glad it sold, and thanks for the feedback on Pinkbike classifieds. I've looked there, and there are some really well priced bikes that show up.

    FYI, I've used Bikeflights multiple times. Works as advertised. They get you with the extra fees for insurance, home delivery, etc., so that initial quote adds up. But the process is 100% easy-peasy.

    Good work, Cisco!

    Yes of bkeflights, several times. The only game in town. Never had a problem until this last time, when they missed the 2-day. BF offered a partial or full refund upon inquiry. They're usually half of FedEx cost. Will use again.

    Pinkpike also, overall good. Beware of "curtiso" or Black Rock Cycles in Reno; had to go to the mat on a simple return.
