• Many bikes have come and gone, but this has stood the test of time, until now. Much loved, under used and taking up lots of room, this was my first proper MTB but has been on 2nd backup commuting duty for the last 8 years, therefore it's time for a new owner.

    • 22inch frame in great condition
    • Fox Float forks, recently serviced by Cycle Power who was positively surprised on the condition for it'sage
    • SLX/XT 9 speed gearset
    • 1 SLX brake, 1 Deore brake
    • Hope Pro 2 rear wheel
    • Massive Big Apple tyres
    • Rear rack mounts

    Shared in full disclosure, a while ago I tried to remove the rear cassette (still great condition, but was toying with a SS conversion) but the lock-ring was being difficult. Likely needs some WD40 and a bit of strength. Worst case, Hope freehub removal is a doddle.

    I'd like £280>£260>£250 ONO for my old friend, ideally collection from SW London/Surrey (KT4) but can meet if needed.

    Note the photos were from before I reattached the brakes after a bleed and clean.

  • Unlikely, but if you ever decide to split I'm interested in those forks. Provided the steerer is long enough (a decent bit over 200mm).

    Seems like a good deal for someone who wants a complete bike though.

  • I've got a potential fork if you want it. PM if interested.

  • Drop £260

  • Drop £250, would also consider parting if someone wants the frame

  • Hi there,


  • PM incoming too...

  • I've had a few questions about sizing, this is a big frame and would likely suit 6'2+

  • I would quite like this - is it sold?- but would want to sell on the
    Deore brake
    XT mech
    Slx shifters
    Anyone interested in these bits?

  • I might be interested in the forks (depending on details), @tallsam above is also. Potentially also the wheels.

  • @tmevans - It's still available, happy to split for you if you don't want the hassle

    @urbs - I think @tallsam went down a different (not bouncy) route

  • I did.


  • OK cool, I appreciate the help. Do you want to pm me a number for the frame/chain/cassette/seatpost/ brake and so on?

  • Update - @tmevans is keen on the forks

    Is there a buyer for the frame? £75 anyone?

  • How much of this is left?

  • All of it!

  • Sold!

  • Thanks pjhobs! Great seller and had a blast riding it home!
