Less than a year old. Bought for my son who was 5'9" and 13 years old at the time. A year later and he's over 6' and has grown out of this! Flaming kids...
Anyway my Digby of a boy is someone else's gain. This has an rrp of £2.5k, I haggled well to get it for £2.0k and will sell for £1200. I've watched a few on ebay recently all 3 of which have sold between £1600 and £1699.
It's a used bike and shows signs of use. It's not had excessive use in the year we've owned it (mainly as my lad is a lazy sod and is very reluctant to ride if he has to pedal up hills) but it has been used on a few weekend trips to BPW and a week in Morzine.
If you're looking for concours condition then look elsewhere. If you want a really capable bike in good working order that'll tackle just about any type of riding at a great price then talk to me :o)
I chose this as it has full shimano brakes and gears (apart from the raceface chainset) SLX with an XT mech. 150mm of Fox suspension both ends.
I bought a Specialized chain guide for it from new as its 1x. Also swapped the stock stem for a 35mm dia stubby sixpack stem and the bars for some bontrager bars. The grips are upgraded to ODI lock on ruffians.
The dropper works a treat. I recently had it completely recabled by my LBS. They also gave it a gear service whilst it was in.
The frame has quite a lot of scratches from where the lad wears knee pads. Mainly on the top tube but not confined to there. See pics. There's a tiny nick in one of the stanchions, but it doesn't affect the performance of the fork at all. There's a ding in one side of the rear rim but it's been like that ages and doesn't leak (the tyres are set up tubeless). The tyres are the excellent Butcher and Purgatory grid tubeless, both in 27.5x2.6". These are the originals and you'll see have very little wear.
Give me a pm if interested. Price is for pick up from me (between Tonbridge and Maidstone). Pedals and mudguard are "model's own" and not included.
Last ones. Frame is a medium BTW.
@cake do it!
Ha. I wish. If that van driver hadn't hospitalised me and out me out of work I'd be all over it.
Hope you're situation improves but thanks for the interest. Also thanks @furious_tiles and @hillbilly for the encouragement.
It’s an incredibly capable and well spec’d bike at a very good price.
Cheers, yeah I'd like to keep it really as it fits me nicely despite the boy growing out of it. But I kinda don't need it so hopefully will find a happy home on here.
First and only price drop to £1150. If no interest from my fave forum by Sunday evening I'll remove from sale here and try elsewhere. Cheers, D.
Awww crap @yetidamo. Why do you do this to me!?
It's a bargain and a great seller, someone buy it please. I don't need it. I don't.....
Stop it...you tease
