Lenz Sport Park Bike for sale.


I built this park bike for Jeny.  She rode it a total of 4 times -- all in 2016.  Never got out in 2017.  

Basically, since my ankles are fooked and I can't ride DH anymore, Jeny no longer has a partner for lift-served days.  Thus we're selling her park bike.

It's a LenzSport PBJ.  Size medium, 29" wheels, 160mm travel f and 170mm r.

Rear shock is a Vivid Coil with Ti spring.  Sprung for a ~130# rider.

Wolftooth n/w 32t ring, MRP G3 guide, and clutched rear der mean that chain ain't coming off.

Rear der is an X9 10 speed short cage, moving the SRAM chain across a SRAM 11-32 cassette.  A little wider spread than you see on most park bikes these days -- because we did (once upon a time) self-shuttle.

Tires are as seen above.  Hard to beat DHF's in 2.5".

Fork is a 2016 Pike -- before they lightened things up.  Buttery smoove.

Front wheel is a DT FR front hub laced to a Derby carbon rim with DT Competition spokes and DT Prolock nips.  Tubeless.  Goop could probably use a recharge.

It's a relatively simple bike.  Meant to do one thing really well: go downhill, fast, through rough terrain.

Hayes Prime Comp brakes are simple and reliable, and use D.O.T. fluid.  Rotors are Ashima 8" f and 7" r.

Rear wheel is a Stans Flow EX laced to a DT 350 12 x 157 hub using DT Swiss Competition spokes and DT Prolock nips.  Also tubeless.  Maxle Ultimate -- same as on the Pike up front.

If you're into ripping DH laps 5 days a week all summer and boosting triples that were built as doubles, this is probably not the ideal bike for you -- but only because of the Pike.  Swap it for a Dorado or Boxxer or 49 or Bartlett and it suddenly has few peers.  Happy to include 20mm end caps for the front hub.

If you get out on weekends and like chasing your friends down any/every kind of trail, this bike will excel at that as-is and save your gucci/light trail bike from a lot of abuse.

As pictured this bike would cost over $5000 to assemble.  Selling it now, including shipping to the Lower 48, for $2600.

Happy to meet you at any of Colorado's bike parks to hand it off in person.

Need it?  Or have questions on details I inadvertently omitted?
