LenzSport FatMoth.

Very rare and absolutely one-of-a-kind bike.

Size large.  

I built this bike for myself late last July.

RockShox Monarch RT3 in 200 x 57 gives you 140mm of rear travel.

I had envisioned a number of sandy/desert rides where the plump rims and tires would be a big benefit.  In the 8+ months that I've owned this bike, I haven't touched (or seriously considered) *any* of those rides.

In fact, I simply haven't ridden it much to speak of.

 28t Wolftooth wide/narrow ring up front, with integrated Wolftooth bashguard.

The top-shelf component spec is still in excellent condition.

Wheels = DT Swiss hubs laced with butted DT spokes and DT Prolock alloy nips to a crisp set of Velocity P35 rims.

The arch on the 140mm travel RockShox Revelation fork has been milled to give tire clearance.

Stealth Reverb, 125mm of drop.

Brand spankin' new ENVE sweep bars, and a brand spankin' new trigger shifter.

Maxles on both ends of the bike.

Brakes are Hayes Prime Comp, 7" front and 6" rear.

As new this is a $6100 bike.  Selling it now for $4525.  Damn near perfect condition, as obvious from the above pics.

Pedals not included.

The above price assumes local pickup.

Want it shipped to the lower 48?  Sure--figure roughly $150 for packing/shipping via Fed Ex Ground.

Can be seen/test ridden in Grand Junction, Colorado.  Please email in advance to arrange an appointment:

Fox 36 Van 180, converted for 29" use.

I bought this fork new in June.  Milled the arch and limited the travel (to ~167mm) for a 29" wheel.  Cut the steerer and installed it on my LunchBox.  Never got a chance to ride it, for many reasons.

Tapered steerer is 6.25" or 158mm.

Comes with a spare set of coil springs from the factory--never got to ride any of it, so I'm not sure if they are softer or firmer than what came stock inside the fork.

For perspective, this is what a 29 x 2.4" Maxxis Ardent looks like when mounted to a Stans Flow EX at ~25psi.

New this fork is worth well over $1k, not including the millwork.  Selling it for $750 shipped within the lower 48.

RockShox Pike RCT3 in 29" x 150mm travel.

Black, Solo Air, tapered steerer, and 15mm Maxle Lite.

New, uncut, never used in any way.  

46mm offset.

$840 includes US shipping.

Add $45 and I'll include a 160mm air shaft so that you can go bigger when the time is right.

Big Minions.

At long last the rumored (and needed!) 29 x 2.5" Maxxis Minion DHF tires are here.

As in, available to be purchased and *ridden*.  Yep, right now.

Casing has EXO protection and is Tubeless Ready.  

I've been running mine tubeless since October of '12 on Stans Flow EX, Pacenti DL31, and Derby HD rims.  I've ridden them in Arizona, Utah, and Colorado, on the most fun and chunky trails I know.  

They have massive casings (~62mm wide on a Flow EX, @ 20psi), massive knobbage, hold untubed air beautifully, and are basically the best thing since sliced rye.  

They are, by far, the most adept big-hit tire made for big wheel bikes.  I've ridden them back-to-back against Hans Dampf, Ardent, Purgatory, and Nobby Nic.  Those are all great tires--for cross country riding.  If you want to really get after it *and* not worry about flats, the DHF's are in a league of their own.

Hell, they're even Skippy approved:

And you can get 'em right now.

$59 per single ply tire, or $65 for the DH casing.

That includes shipping to the lower 48.  AK, HI, and Canuckistan?  Sure, you'll just have to pay the added shipping charges.
