For sale: Specialized Sequoia Elite frameset (+ headset), size 54. £400
Collection from N8 preferably. I will get some better pictures - note doesn’t come with bars and brakeset. Can find them in my other post
Elite is the model with the carbon fork, this has 'adventure' mounts that you can put a rack on, which I did for some time (specialized pizza rack) for commuting and a little touring.
I cannot speak as to whether it would be eligible for an 'early gravel bike' conservation grant, I'm not an authority on such things.
I bought it as a full bike from Cycle Exchange in Esher, they'd had someone trade it in. I have now sold (see here) or re-used the parts off so selling the frame & fork (with headset still in place).
The headset is the one that was in it when I bought it. Every service (at least once/ year) I've asked my LBS to look at it to make sure it's OK, they've never had anything to say about it. The frame and fork are in sound condition.
The matt paint job shows wear and won't clean up spotless. Some cable wearing to the headset cup. Generally not bad condition but like, it's not amazing.
Clears 700x42mm happily, and 650bx47mm
I am including a spare rear hanger and the little hidden mounts of mudguards - you secure them in with grub screws, I bought them but I didn't use them.
Never had a problem with seatposts slipping, no cracks I can see anywhere, and no problems with bottom brackets.
