I built this bike for myself late in June. It is a size large, "Punkass" (short chainstay) LenzSport Behemoth.
I built it to be my alpine and bikepacking sled, and that's what I used it for.
Thing is, the alpine riding season is short, and this bike is very, very, very similar to my daily-driver LunchBox that I ride the rest of the year, and everywhere else.
In other words, I only rode this Behemoth a few times before realizing that it was a bit redundant to have in my quiver. I'd like to enjoy the relative wealth of owning a purpose-specific bike, but the honest reality is that I cannot justify it.
This fact was driven home when I realized that I'd ridden it 6 times since new. Six. Re-dun-dant.
The good news, for you, is that I built it with top-shelf components and rode it just enough to dial in the ride.
MRP Stage fork has 150mm of travel, tapered steerer, 15mm thru. I love the adjustability of this damper, specifically the way they've decoupled all of the other adjustments from the air volume. No other fork on the market is as adjustable, nor can any other fork be made as supple on top while still feeling bottomless and never, ever having a harsh bottom out.
Internal rear der routing is clean and quiet.
Traction tape on the Reverb remote.
Stealth Reverb with 125mm of drop.
XO1 10-42 cassette.
Gorgeous rootbeer powdercoat really lights up when in natural light. Not *just* when in the sun.
RockShox Monarch RT3, MM tune, HV can. Note the RWC needle bearings. This chassis gets 125mm of travel. And while to some folks 5" of travel = a bashing, banging, hucking bike, that is emphatically not the case here. The Lenz LunchBox is designed and optimized for that style of riding, while this bike, the Behemoth, has a decidedly XC feel to it.
Wolftooth 26t n/w ring, with integrated Wolftooth bash. Perfect gearing for the mountains. Note SRAM Ceramic BB.
Comfy bars for all-day and overnight rides.
Hayes Prime Comp brakes clamp onto Ashima 180/160 rotors.
Wheels are Light-Bicycle 27mm hookless carbon rims, laced to DT Swiss 240s hubs with DT Swiss SuperComp spokes and DT Swiss Prolock alloy nips. Note that 8 nips on each wheel are red. Valves are WTB aluminum, tires are tubeless ready 2.3"--Bontrager XR4 Team up front, Maxxis Ikon EXO out back. Great blend of light, fast, and durable for trouble-free bikepacking trips.
Gravity headset for the simple reason that I'm sick to death of the creaks, squeaks, and ticks inherent with the high $ gucci headsets from King and Cane Creek. This one cost half as much and has yet to make a peep on this bike. I also have this exact headset on my LunchBox and Milk Money, and those two are also utterly silent as well. Amen.
New this bike would run ~$6600 all-in.
As pictured, ridden 6 times, I'm selling it for $4200. That price is for local pickup in Grand Junction.
Add $50 delivery within the state of Colorado, or as far as Moab.
Want it shipped? Sure thing--add $125 to the total.
Pedals are not included.
Thanks for looking,
