• Looking for a sturdy beater, thinking something like a rigid mountain bike but open to suggestions. It's for a friend who will be using it for weekend riding on tow paths, bridleways, paths etc. - mainly in the local area I think. He's 5ft10. Budget around £200.

  • I have a friend who has a vintage Dawes mountain bike if that’s your thing

  • I have a lovely rigid Specialized Rock Hopper which I no longer use-It's very light double butted chromo, with chunky fast tyres and I fitted an adjustable stem and mudguards. If you're interested text me your number on 07901 957861 and I can send you some pics.

  • @MCamb had a nice freebie i failed to organise collection on, might still be going?

  • Heya. Thanks, yep would be interested to know more!

  • Ok I’ll get him to send me some pics and I’ll find out how much he’s looking for it , Cheers k

  • I was thinking of moving on frame/fork/headset/stem/seatpost from my Rudy Project. I'm 5'10. Was looking for £110

  • Selling my 1991 GT Karakoram here.

    Can split the frame if that's all you are after for £80 with BB, headset and seat post.

  • Thank you!

  • Thanks. @MCamb I had a quick look but can't find this. Assuming it's gone in any case but pls shout if it's not.

  • And thanks @LeBlaireau and @Jonny69 - am following up with friend about these (bike's not for me). K

  • This my friends bike 531 frame will need a service

  • Thanks for pics - looks v nice. How much are they selling for do you know? Ta.

  • Unfortunately he's not into the pink frame :( Thanks though.

  • He wants me to build it up and sell on but if he can get close to £150 as is I think he’d be happy I haven’t seen it in the flesh so don’t know what it’s really worth, hope this helps and feel free to make an offer cheers k

  • I might be interested in the frame from that Dawes if @Ktoast doesn't take it.

  • Hey. It's a delightful frame! My friend is being vague and I don't think it's quite what he wants, so you should go for it @ffm . Thanks v much for your efforts @littleK .

  • No worries and good luck, @ffm I’m gonna try and pick up the bike over the weekend so pm if your still interested cheers k

  • I've got a Rockhopper for sale here:

  • Thanks, any information on sizing would be really useful. I'm not really interested in the whole bike, so if he wants to sell it complete then don't worry about it. Also, it doesn't look as if it has rack eyelets on the seatstays, which isn't ideal.

  • Ok I’ll find out I’m guessing the seat tube is 23” c-t it has eyelets but once I have at mine I’ll take more detail pics cheers

  • I have this for sale

  • How much for the kona?

  • Would you be interested in a 2014 giant defy 1? I know its neither a rigid mountain bike or a tourer but it is super comfy. Looking for £250.
