For Sale: Reynolds 853 mountain bike 19"

  • SOLD

    I know this is the wrong place to sell this, but I may as well try here too.

    I bought it brand new on 26th of jan. 2011, and unfortunately i have only taken this bad boy off road 3 times, and i now need to get rid of it, which i am very sorry about, as it is beautiful to ride, the handling is impeccable, climbs well, and confidently handles the most technical trails.

    Genesis altitude 30 2010 19" frame. reynolds 853 tubing. very comfy off road, and also very springy.

    rockshox reba race 120mm forks with 20mm bolt through axle

    shimano XT triple chainset 175mm 48t on the big ring

    shimano XT rear mech

    shimano XT F & R brakes

    shimano SLX hubs on DT swiss X430 rims 32h specialized fast trak LK tyres

    Ritchey comp seat post, (i have identical posts in 350 and 400mm)

    Selle Italia SLR XP saddle

    pm for details,


  • that is truly a tricked out bike, very nice indeed.
    curious as to what that frame feels like, springy I would imagine.
    out of my price range at the mo, but best of luck with the sale.

  • i kind of expect it to be out of every ones price range unfortunately.

    its really nice to ride, I am a pretty amateur MTB rider, but it makes me feel very confident when riding. the whole thing feels very solid, and its the nicest out of all the steel MTB frames ive ridden if i could get enough money from selling all the bits i would keep the frame and make it into a slick fully rigid commuter.

  • also might add its not Dynasis so its 9 speed

  • great bike,and perfect for an introduction to mtb'ing and a better choice than one of those big wheeled monstrosities or a full bouncer.

  • very, very nice. good luck.

  • ^^^Ditto.

    Got a custom build earlier Altitude frame (with the thicker seatstays) and it's a hoot to ride.Wouldn't swap it for the world.

    Good luck with the sale - someone's in for a nice bike!

  • also, I should add its got the all important rack mounts

  • My mate has an identical one of these and it is superb...... I'm not in the Market for one, but if I was, I would be buying this......

    Free bumpage

  • Extremely tempted by this - are you still Golders Green based Craney? I may have to come have a look at it...

  • not in golders green, in holborn, or at work in kensington. your welcome to try for size and such.

  • think im gonna have to take this to singletrackworld

  • Email me at if you still have this bike

  • Dick
