Up for sale is my 2014 Lenz Lunchbox, in 9.5/10 condition. I prefer to sell the bike complete, but will consider parting out, particularly if you want to buy more than one component. Please read the description carefully, as there are a few changes from the pictures.
Complete manufacturer info in the link above, but the geo highlights on the bike include 150mm rear travel, 16.7" chain stays, 13.7" bottom bracket, and 67* head angle. I've thrown some offset bushings on the bike and gotten a 13.2" BB and 66.5* HA as a result. Also, the rear end is 142, not 157 as the Lenz website specs out. I requested that this frame be built to accommodate a 142 wheelset I already had. Descends amazingly, and climbs really well, too, particularly with the TALAS 36 in the lower setting. I also have a set of 5" rockers I'll throw in with the complete bike (or if you want to buy just the frame/shock). With the 5" rockers, you can run the bike at 130f/127r for an amazingly quick, responsive ride on trails that may not require 160f/150r. In short, there are a lot of options here.
All told, I've put about $7500 into this bike. Here's what I'll sell you for $4900...
Medium Rawthic frame
200 x 50 Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS (w/ both stock and offset bushings)
2015 Fox 36 TALAS 160/130 (~200 mi on this almost-new fork, stealth decals)
Industry Nine Torch Enduro 29 wheels (recently rebuilt, rims have ~75 miles)
USED X01 RD, shifter, cassette (~1,200 mi)
BRAND NEW X1 RD, shifter, cassette
X1 (S1400) cranks (~200 mi) w/ 28t WTC Drop-Stop chainring (~450 mi)
BRAND NEW Guide RS brakes (200f/180r)
Rockshox Reverb Stealth 125 x 380 (RH remote mounted under LH side)
Thomson 50mm stem
Raceface Atlas 780mm bars (uncut)
TLD ODI or Renthal Kevlar grips (your choice)
Fizik Gobi XM saddle
Currently running a 2.5 DHF front and a 2.3 Slaughter out back, which is killin' for dry as a bone SoCal.
I'll include those two tires, 2.3 DHF, a 2.35 Ikon, a 2.3 Ground Control, and a 2.2 Purgatory in the purchase, all with 8/10 tread.
I removed most of the decals, but have a full spare set I'll include.
As described, the bike sits at 30.8 lbs.
