and I'll take the sleeping pad!...............(friggin' Canuck)..
$1200 ridden for only one season in the Santa Cruz Mountains my guess is a maximum of 200 miles. I built it up in December 2010, bought the frame off of a guy who had gotten it as a replacement after leaving his 1st one on the roof of the car and driving it into the front of his garage anyway it has SRAM X-9 components, BB7 Discs and Shimano SLX crank and WTB wheels with XT hubs. Suspension is all FOX, Float-RLT fork was redone in 2010 by PUSH Industries and had the higher volume kit put in at a cost of $321. For those of you not familiar with Mountain Cycle they are hand built frames made in the USA. They're really popular with downhill MTB'rs but this is a more than competent XC bike (Jamis Dakar was pretty much an exact copy from 07-10).
Thanks Geek! I'll drop you a line for sure.
Sidi Livia Women's Gore Tex boots...
Bought a set of boots for my GF, we love them but should have gotten a size smaller. They were used for one 3 week trip, saw about 10 drops of rain- they are perfect. I will replace them with the same thing- they are comfy, supportive, and waterproof. Perfect touring boots.
Size EU 40/ US 8.

$220 new, asking for $170. Will go to the main flea market next week.
Well, my thumper took a nap this weekend on a steep gravely hill and the left side assembly that houses the choke switch, light, and mirror snapped off at the choke/mirror point, so I am look for that who apparatus. Ideas, anyone have one for a 2000 or are the reasonable aftermarket options?
Ebay? Are the turn signal units similar bike to bike? I was looking at mine on the DR and it seemed any number of those could be modded to work.
Not the turn signal itself, but the assembly on the handlebar that houses the light and turn signal switches. I found one on ebay from someone in Woodland park, but it seems beat up for the price
That's what I meant. Aren't the actuators pretty similar for older bikes?
Come to think of it, they might be. Right now zip ties are working great and I will not be on a trail that hard for a long while, I was way over my head and it if it was not for the great brecktrek crew, I would still be on that scree hill
You took a KLR on a trail? Wow.
Yes and it was Brecktrek of all thinks. 717 I think.
Hey everyone, I still have one of these wheel chocks for sale.. They let you clamp your bike down by the front wheel and you don't need to use tie downs. I used to have an enclosed trailer which I used them in but I don't want to put them in my pick up.
I also got this sportworks bike rack that needs a new home (don't need since I have a pick up) The only bad thing about it is I cracked off a bit of the plastic wheel scoop in the lower right. It doesn't really affect it at all. It's pretty much the thule t2 bike rack that is currently made (everything bolts up to it). I have the hitch lock for it too. I have it on CL for 300 but ADV price is lower, just PM me.
Lastly I'm also going to sell my plated KTM 250 EXC 4 stroke bored to a 351 by HT racing from when I used to live in California. I always ride the yz and this thing never gets used unless I romp around the neighborhood and hit the unbuilt plots around the house. It doesn't have any street legal stuff but I do have the street M/C title in hand.
I just put new fork/oil seals, did the valves, c/s seal, chain, sprockets, water pump seal, F/R wheel bearings to fix it up for my dad but he ended up not wanting to go with it. I also just put the quick disconnect plug on the battery so you can plug it in to trickle charge very easily (helps if you're lazy!). It comes with the scotts damper mount (no damper, sorry!). Has cycra center reach hand guards, and a nice ktm carbon fiber skid plate.
The bad is that the left side radiator is a little bent, the header pipe has some scratches and a light dent that doesnt seem to affect performance too badly. I pilfered the little connector for the front headlight so I need to make some 1/4" quick disconnects to hook it back up. When I was doing the fork seals I broke the computer's magnetic pick up sensor .
The bike has about 130 hours on it per the computer. It comes with an extra sprocket, 3 sets of extra oil filters (I ran rotella t6 synthetic 5w40) an extra twin air filter. I'd like to get 3700 but I'm open to offers.
Thanks for looking!
Here's a link to my post in the general flea market:
Take a look at this switch. It needs to be used with a mirror/choke relocator bracket (which is a good idea anyway)
the part number I used to search: 27010-1016-AS
The link above is a Canadian outfit but should be able to be found in the US
I have this switch on my KLX, modified to fit. It's plug n play on a KLR
$800 this week or it's getting parted out
Used set of Honda Rebel 250 Saddle Bags and Windshield. Bags are synthetic and the stand-off racks are NOT included. Windshield is bar mounted. $100 for the bags and windshield. Bike isn't for sale
Brand new. Bad arse.
Size US 10/Euro 44.5. They run a little big in my opinion. I wear a 10 or 10.5 shoe regularly, but wear a 9 in these.
$170 shipped or I can meet you somewhere locally.
Looking for a KTM tank bag for an LC8 adventure apparently they're discontinued. P/N 60012019100
Thought I would post this up here as well:
2007 Cannondale Judge DH Team Replica
It's got all the best stuff on it for the time. I have it on CL for 1800, http://denver.craigslist.org/bik/2989569793.html , I bought it for a lot more than that but I'm open to offers because I dont have any plans for it (as I haven't for the past 3 years). Here is some copied text from the CL ad:
The last time I rode this bike was in the summer of 2009. It's the 2007 cannondale judge with the large frame. It has all the best sram stuff from 2007:
The bike is in excellent condition and is definitely not clapped out. There are normal scratches from low speed get offs. I weighed about 170 back then and rode it very lightly. It has heavy duty tubes in it and weights approximately 43 pounds currently. I know you can these down to sub 40 pounds with XC tubes and single ply tires.
