[SOLD] 2021 Hydra - Medium Archon X1 - Seattle, WA - $4250


Active Member
As the title states I'm contemplating selling my Hydra. I paid $6,400 in June 2021 and it was delivered in late October 2021. I've put a little more than 700 miles on it since. Asking $5000 $4250.

Reason for selling is that with my weight (140lb) it's just a bit too much bike to wrestle with, given the type of riding that I have been enjoying the most has been flowy singletrack and jump park stuff, I have almost exclusively been riding my Santa Cruz Bronson. As you can see there's some dirt and a couple of scuffs here and there - yes I rode my bike and these things happen. Nothing major. About 100 miles ago I disassembled the motor and packed it with Mobil Unirex N2 grease (and a new gasket) to quiet it down a bit and promote longevity.

  • Size medium
  • Northern Lights Cerakote (clear coated so it's quite a bit darker)
  • Matte clear frame protection on toptube, battery door, and chainstays
  • Archon X1 controller upgrade with programming cable (custom tuned to 125w-750w steps with class 3 28mph limit in eco mode and unrestricted 1000w-2300w steps in sport mode)
  • Modified throttle with Honeywell SS49e hall effect sensor for finer throttle control
  • 52V battery (before WW switched to 48V)
  • 10 amp fast charger (and a spare more portable 2 amp charger)
  • DVO Diamond E2 e-bike specific fork set at 150mm with a clear protective wrap
  • Manitou Mara shock
  • Magura MT5e with e-bike specific levers (wired into the controller to cut power)
  • 203mm Magura MDR-C rotors front and rear
  • MTX Braking heavy duty e-bike brake pads
  • Shimano XT M8000 11-speed derailleur/shifter
  • SunRace CSMX8 11-51T cassette (with spare Shimano SLX 11-42T)
  • Wolftooth Goatlink (for cassette compatibility)
  • Garbaruk extended derailleur cage (again for cassette compatibility)
  • 27.5x2.8" Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires
  • Sun Ringle 40mm width wheels
  • Tannus Armor (with tubes) front and rear
  • WTB Saddle
  • 170mm KS Rage-i dropper post
  • PNW Loam XL Grips
  • OneUp Aluminum pedals
  • Protaper aluminum bars trimmed to 780mm
  • Crud XL front fender
  • SKS Mudrocker rear fender
Probably will not come with the lock, lights, or trail bell. I've got a few spare Shimano 11t cassette cogs, motor gaskets, etc. that will come with the bike.
