Hope/Stans NoTubes *singlespeed* wheelset for sale.

Price dropped.

Built these beauties a few months back to hang on a floor model.  Sold the bike but the owner already had wheels so these stayed.

Hope Pro II EVO front hub in 32h, blue.  Hope Trials (SS) rear hub in 32h, blue.

Front can be QR, 9mm, 15mm, or 20mm.

Rear is bolt-on.  QR end caps are available, but I don't stock them.

Stans Arch EX rims in rare silver.  32h, already taped and with WTB blue alu tubeless valves so they're all ready to be run tubeless.

DT Swiss Competition butted silver spokes and DT Swiss alloy nips in blue.

Spacers, lockring, and 21t Surly SS cog included.

These wheels have been ridden 3 or 4 times on parking lot test rides, but have never seen dirt.  Just as round, true, and tension balanced as the day they were built.

This would normally be an ~$815 wheelset.

Selling this set, exactly as pictured above, for $600 shipped.

29+ front wheel for sale.

DT Swiss 350 Boost front hub laced to a Bontrager Line+ rim using DT butted spokes and DT Prolock alloy nips.

Potentially the easiest/most reliable tubeless interface on the market today.  One wrap of tape, push the valve through, install the tire, then pump to desired pressure.  So easy.

120tpi tire is supple in all the right ways, with predictable handling.

Hub is Centerlock compatible but includes a 6-bolt adapter so you're covered either way.

This is a $400 wheel/tire that I'm selling for $300 shipped.

Want a complete set?  Sure thing--$750 will be the total and that includes both tires as well as shipping.

Sondors E-bike for sale.


(see far below)

I bought this a few months ago on a crowdfunding deal.  Total shipped/delivered price was $894.

It has been a fun and educational project.  Very first thing I did was to snip the heavy/slow/ridiculous-for-commuting fat rims and tires out, and then to lace a set of light tubeless ready rims in there.  Butted spokes, Prolock nips--really nice wheels.

Then I shod them with a set of supple tubeless ready tires, sloshed in some sealant, and promptly enjoyed a higher top speed, much reduced rolling resistance, and a greater range between charges.

Headlight and taillight included for safety, and because it's getting dark early these days.

The stock stem and bars were too low and narrow, so I swapped in this Bontrager rise stem and Answer riser bar.  More comfortable, better visibility, better control.


The entire front wheel was built new, from the ground up, for this bike.  Hope FatSno hub, Salsa skewer, and WTB TCS rim are the highlights.  It is light, durable, and tubeless to prevent dreaded goathead flats.

Remaining battery indicator.

Phorm ergo grips.

I added a Thudbuster suspension seatpost and WTB Volt saddle for more comfort and less shock transmittal.  It is still a rigid bike, albeit much more comfortable than it was.

Tektro disc brakes provide excellent all-weather stopping power.

Bomber sidestand for easy parking.

The aforementioned Answer handlebars and headlight.

All in all this is an incredible bike that made running errands like going to the bank or post office much faster and even a lot of fun.

My only complaint?  Not enough cargo capacity, as I regularly go grocery shopping by bike.  

So I'm selling this one to fund a hub motor for my cargo bike.

I've got over $1400 into this bike, as pictured.

Get it now for $750 out the door.  Includes charger.

I have a rear rack for it too, happy to throw it in to sweeten the deal

LenzSport PBJ frame for sale.

29" wheels + 7" of travel = monster truck.

Or something like it.

Devin Lenz has been building and refining this 'park bike' chassis for 5+ years now, with feedback coming from places like Whistler and Winter Park.  

I built this one two years ago, but didn't get to ride it until this year.  And even then we only managed 6 park days, so this bike is scarcely broken in.

Includes a RockShox Vivid R2C rear shock with 600# spring.  Good for riders in the range of ~180 to    ~200#.  Not in that range?  Springs are cheap (like $30 or so) and easy to swap.

Seatpost is not included.  Seat collar and rear Maxle are.

Chris King NoThreadset included.  Right-side-up install gratis.

Standard threaded (hallelujah) BB shell, with removable ISCG '05 plate for your chain guide.

Color = 'red-as'.

Purchased new this is a ~$2600 package.  It's got 2 Winter Park days and 4 Crested Butte days on it, so it's not new but it sure ain't used either.

$1200 includes shipping in the lower 48.  Happy to ship to Canada or Alaska too--but shipping will be higher.

I don't often get artistically creative with wheelbuilds unless someone specifically requests it.

This is a rare exception.

I laced a set of DT Swiss 350 (aka 3Fatty) hubs to a set of Surly Rolling Darryl 82mm wide rims, using DT Swiss Competition butted spokes and DT Prolock alloy nips.

Front hub is 15 x 150 for Bluto, rear hub is 12 x 197.  Both hubs have DT Swiss Centerlock-to-6-bolt adapters installed, so you're covered regardless of braking system.

Freehub can be Shimano 10 or SRAM 11--please specify.

I installed white Surly rimstrips because I liked the motif, but you can have black, red, blue, orange, or none at all if you prefer.

At MSRP this is an ~$1100 wheelset once you factor in labor and shipping.

Selling this one set, now, for $787 shipped.

* * * * *

Like the wheels but want something a little less, uh, white?

I have the rims in stock in olive green, school-bus yellow, pimp-daddy gold, none-more-black, and root beer.

Spokes can be black, white, or silver.

Nips can be black, red, blue, gold, green, purple, or silver.

Combine any of the above *except* for white spokes, and the total will be $700 all-in.

* * * * *

And no, these tires aren't included, but they sure are pretty and long overdue.

Salsa/Clownshoe wheelset.

Salsa Enabler front and Mukluk 2 rear hubs laced to Surly Clownshoe 100mm rims using DT Swiss butted spokes and DT Prolock alloy nips.  Front hub is 135mm, rear is 170mm.  Surly rimstrips and Salsa QR skewers included.

This is an $820 wheelset.  New, never been ridden, never been installed on a bike.  Selling them now for $500 shipped.
