I've recently bought a mountain bike and have been told in no uncertain terms that another bike must go, so I'm selling my utility / camping build, which I love but have barely used so have accepted that the game's up.
It's based around an S&G Muddy Fox Explorer vintage steel MTB frame - one of the earliest MTBs of all and THE earliest Muddy Fox, before the company was even called Muddy Fox. Its geometry is nice and relaxed but not too crazy like the early Dawes Ranger. I'd say it's very similar to a Surly LHT.
I found the frame after a lot of searching and posting of wanted ads as I was obsessed with finding a steel MTB with three-piece (as opposed to unicrown) forks... which I think are pretty fine. The frame was in a pretty bad way so I renovated it, had a couple of bits repaired and some braze-ons added, had it powder-coated then built it up with a mixture of new parts and parts from my previous build. You can read about it here (LFGSS) if you like.
N.B. doesn't come with front rack, as I'm transferring that to another bike.
The bike has barely been used, with only 200 miles on it (except the rear rim which is newer). Some parts have been around longer - the Alfine hub was second-hand, for instance.
I think it'd also look good with drops and minus the mudguards and rack. Either way it's pretty versatile - you could keep as is or tweak very easily.
I'd like £400. I'm in Newcastle upon Tyne, but I can post at cost if necessary.
Excellent build sir
