    I’ve got some forks -

    Pompino V4, new;
    Specialized Tricross (?), used;
    Planet X disc forks, used; and
    Easton EC70x (as far as I know), new.

    PM me if any of those would be of use - the only forks I would want decent money for are the Eastons. I was thinking £20 each for the others plus post.

    I may also have a XL V4 Pomp for sale soon if anyone is looking.

    Is anyone interested in purchasing my Kepler?

    It is a 56cm 2020 model, QR front and rear. I have both a road bike and a MTB now and this has barely been ridden. I don't think there is a mark on the frame and certainly no dents or dings.

    The parts are a bit of a mish mash but all fairly new:

    Cane Creek 40 Headset
    Salsa Guide Stem
    46cm Salsa Cowchippers
    GRX600 crankset
    Microshift Advent 9 gears (note: non clutch model)
    Avid BB7 S Brakes (will install new pads)
    Random sealed Alex wheelset - actually run quite nice despite being low end.
    SKS AL46 mudguards

    It's a great little bike and I would guess that it has been ridden less than 500 miles since being built up.

    Note: I will include a random seat post (will be keeping the carbon Salsa one) and flat pedals.

    I am based in Bristol and would prefer a local collection but could potentially post within the UK at cost.

    I'm hoping for £900 although please do let me know if I am off the mark. Happy to hear offers.

    Better photos can be provided if people are interested.

    I'm both impulsive and too tall for this bike. I've since got it muddy and appreciate the lack of braking power - canti brakes conjure a reasonable amount of fear on mild terrain.

    I’m a leggy 6 foot and like running a bit of seat post - I’ve ridden a 56 and a 58 Kepler and they both can be made to fit.

    Unless you are a very leggy 5’9 I would probably say 52/54 would be a better fit.

    I will soon be selling a 2020 Brother Kepler in size 56. The components are all fairly new except the wheels. Bad photo attached. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

    Yeah - I also have grey DA cables but thought the blue was a bit more interesting.

    I built this on the cheap.

    I've since changed the bar/lever angle, added a longer rear brake cable and fitted a longer chain.

    You have a pm about the chainring.
