USA Today reports that Bill Stapleton and Barton Knaggs have agreed to conditional settlements in the Armstrong case.
Two of Lance Armstrong’s longtime business associates have agreed to pay $500,000 to the United States government as part of a conditional settlement in a lawsuit filed by former Armstrong teammate Floyd Landis.
Stapleton, Armstrong’s longtime agent, and Barton Knaggs, Armstrong’s longtime business partner, also have agreed to pay $100,000 to the law office of Landis’ attorney, Paul Scott.
If approved by the U.S. government, the settlement would release Stapleton, Knaggs, and their agency, Capital Sports & Entertainment, from Landis’ lawsuit in exchange for their combined payments of $500,000 to the government and $100,000 to Scott.

- Hey all,
Some of you may have seen this bike on craigslist this morning. It was listed for $200. I made a quick call and picked it up for $150. I was buying it for an easy set of 9 speed parts for a project I'm working on.
I've decided to go in a different direction and would like to re-sell this as quick as possible.
All this bike needs is wheels, seat post and saddle to be fully functional. I threw on a rear wheel and it shifted through the gears just fine. Both shifters work!
Here are the specs as I see them.
Aluminum Italian Frame, possibly 55 or 56cm (condition is rough as far as paint. Lots of little nicks and scrapes but nothing visually wrong with it...no dents.)
9 speed Dura Ace 7700 rear derailleur in great shape
105 front derailleur in great shape braze on
Ultegra 6500 crank set, 53-39 with 175mm arms
Ultegra 6500 brakes
Dura ace left shifter scraped up pretty good but works great
105 right shifter
New ish looking cables.
Bontrager race lite handlebars
Profile Design Carbon fork
Ritchey Headset, threaded.
Thats about it.
Just looking for $150
- Has a date been set for Froze Toes?
- Selling a great full suspension 29" mountain bike.
- XO1 build (1 x 11)
- DT Swiss XR29 wheels (Tubeless Ready)
- Maxxis Ardent Race EXO Protection TR (Tubeless Ready) tires
- ENVE Sweep bar, approximately 710mm width (purchased seperately)
- DW Link suspension
Pivot's have been getting a lot of attention for their DW Link suspension, and this bike handles everything well from fast descents, torturous climbs, technical rock gardens, tight switchbacks, speedy singletrack, cornering, or just straight up full-steam-ahead doubletrack. This bike is very responsive whether finessing your way through rocks or plowing through roots, the 29" wheels coupled with the DW link 100mm suspension and Fox Float CTD 120mm front end smash trails into submission while you float comfortably above it all.
MSRP on this Pivot (with XO1 build) is around $5,300 and I'm offering it for $3,150.
A couple additional notes:
- The price reflects the only cosmetic defect to the bike, which is the front brake lever. It was slightly bent and then bent back to the original position. Since it works perfectly I decided not to purchase a new lever.
- The bike will also come with three additional items for free that I will include regardless: Two Maxxis tires - Ardent 2.4 EXO, Maxxis Ignitor TR, and the original Pivot MTB bar, albeit cut down to 680mm.
All four tires, including the Maxxis tires on the bike, are in great condition. The stock DT Swiss wheels were not ridden except for a handful of rides. The bike was serviced at SBR O'Fallon (Swim/Bike/Run at 40/K).
