    I'd be interested in the shifters, rear mech and cassette if you decide to split depending on price.

    I need to do a clear out as I just moved into a new flat and I have too many bits in boxes and not enough built up bikes! All prices are plus postage or collection in London. I'm trying to sort out photos but email me in the mean time and I can send them over to you.

    Shimano Ultegra FC-6750 Chainset - Cranks are in really good condition but the chainrings are fairly worn. The cranks are 175 in length. £65

    Specialities TA Vega Cranks in 172.5. Good bit of heal rub but otherwise perfect £20

    Shimano Tiagra 2x9 speed shifters - Used a handful of times with some very slight scratches otherwise excellent condition. £40

    Sram X5 3x9 mtn bike shifters - well used but still perfect for a beater £10

    Tyres - will include new tube with each tyre

    Ya I've read the Cordillera and it really does seem like nothing completely prepares you for it. With costs I've tried to calculate kit, flights and spending during the race and you could easily be up to about £5,000 if not more.

    The Bear Bones seems like a really good race to test staying awake for the whole distance and testing how the body reacts.

    Really wanted to do the Tour Divide in 2015 but don't think fitness or finances are going to allow it at the moment. Was looking more at completion in 25 days though. Would be really interested in getting an idea of the training you're doing and also what you think the costs of it all will be? I'm just in the process of building up a rigid Salsa El Mariachi with Revelate bags.

    Think it may have to wait until 2016 for me!
