    Did about 1600 miles on it, has few scratches and marks. Needs new bar tape.

    Price: £850
    Pick up from SW London only.

  • Monday morning bump and price drop, now £825.

  • Payday price drop, now £800.

  • Another price drop, now £775.

    Absolutely no interest? Is the price to high?

  • If you split it, I might be interested in the frame.

  • Would prefer not to split as I have no idea how much would the frame be worth.

  • I'd also be interested in the frame, if you did decide to split

  • If I was going to split it it would be the frame set, seat post, bb and head set. As I have no use for the forks or the proprietary giant seat post. Not sure what would be a fair price for it given that it has few scratches. I'll take some close up photos tomorrow night.

  • I have discovered it this morning. Looks like a hairline crack on one of the seat stays. Will have to investigate Giant warranty before selling it.

  • This is back on sale. The frame was assessed by Cycle Surgery and they say that it's a paint crack. I've done about 300 miles on it since and it seems fine. The crack is not spreading and there are no suspicious sounds coming out of the frame.

    Price drop: £750. Will consider splitting, make me an offer on the frame set (frame, forks, headset, seat post and BB).

  • Could I look at the whole bike please?

  • The bike has been stripped for parts. I need them for my new build. I can include the wheelset for additional £100. But I'm keeping the groupset and the finishing kit.
