    Ugh, need the high altitude stuff to melt out. I'm losing my mind on the lower elevation stuff :(

    Catherine's Pass is a damn scenic place. That's my buddy Landon in the shot. Ain't nobody wanna see what I looked like after having to trudge my ass up there.

    The climb is brutal in its own right, but note the starting elevation.

    Yikes, yeah I'll usually do that much climbing over about 10 miles on my usual rides. I'm sure the payoff is worth it though

    That climb doesn’t scare me but the elevation would be tough on my N.C. lungs!

    haha. riding in the wasatch range and 1000ft over 1 mile seems pretty standard. I don't have a lot distance endurance though. :(

    For sure. I rode with @abacall at 8000 ft while hungover (out there for a bachelor party) and was struggling. I felt like Spongebob when he dries out

    Yeah, usually 450 is about the upper limit of what I can sustain for any real length of time.

    The secondhand bike market is out of control right now. I can't get my hands on anything. Bikes are literally selling in minutes above market value

    What are you looking for? There's a HUGE amount of second hand bikes for sale in the Bay Area right now. Maybe a local sale would be enticing for sellers. I don't mind being a middle man

    Downside of getting bikes to him from the west coast is the packing / shipping cost can eat into that margin pretty heavy.

    Yeah, I worked in a bike shop throughout high school and college so I can at least pack the bike safely assuming I can get my hands on some packing supplied. Plus ~$100 shipping isn't too bad.

    Fair, I didnt have a bike box or the time to pack it so my shop did it for me, so I had to pay extra for that but it all worked out pretty well in the end.

    Happy to provide a finders fee. The key is definitely DIY packing and www.shipbikes.com (cheaper than Bike Flights). If you think you can scrounge up some stellar deals I am happy to discuss. Many sellers don't want to hassle with shipping but since you are experienced I could buy it, you pickup, you pack/ship.


    This goes for anybody reading this. I am always buying good deals. Finders fee available

    Thinking about selling my Mojo3 for a bit of a markup right now in order to cover a new bike. Problem is that I need the Mojo for my upcoming trip across the country and probably couldn't replace it in time.
