This looks Trick!

More impressive than the black sump guard are the tubeless wheels - any body know how spendy these are?

2399 EUR ... $3150 (USD). Ouch. German price likely includes 19% VAT, but that doesn't make it more appealing ...

The newly launched explorer xc has the same size wheels as the 800. No idea on spares pricing though.

19" front. AND, different forks and discs etc. And, of course, single sided shaft drive on the rear. So they won't fit. And I doubt you could simply lace the rims onto XC hubs.

In the new Icon catalog they explain the purpose of the bike and the rides they did with it, sand, mountain and snow. Also, they have an adventure jacket and pants that match that look good.

I've seen bicycle wheels that cost more, so that price doesn't seem too out of line.

Why not? Seems Woody's could lace any rim you want onto XC hubs.

Today, for the first time ever, my 14,000 mile old 2012 XC started stalling. It started doing it after I was stopped on the side of the road with one of NY states finest. He was nice, but still gave me the ticket (74 in a 55).

When I went to start the bike, it stalled. Wouldn't idle. Wouldn't run unless giving it gas. I wasn't smart enough to turn the key off. I proceeded to ride the bike on some of the nicest damn roads I've ever been on in the Adirondacks. Since i was moving at speed, the bike ran totally normal. ie: awesome! Come to a stop and it dies. Start it back up with lots of throttle and speed off. Now, I'm frustrated. Disappointed, and my goal was to continue riding the bike until I got back to civilization just in case... well, 2 espressos later, I started the bike and it ran fine for the rest of the 275 miles home this evening.

Long story short, turning the power off at the key reset something, but now I'm wondering just what happened. What will happen and if I'm gonna get stranded someday. It seemed to behave exactly how others bikes were acting before the tune came out to solve. My bike never had any of these issues, but I did get the tune awhile back. I had another update several weeks ago. As far as I know, it has the latest tune. It's run perfect since that tune. I probably put about 3,000 miles on the bike since I got it. I did about 2,000 miles over the last 5 days and it started doing it this morning. Not sure if any of that is related?

Thoughts?
