OK, for sale here is a fantastic bike and the last year they made the M5 alloy frame with the anodized finished frame...its in black and has Rock Shox Sid race fork.It would be a great Xmas pressie for someone, you wont be dissapointed with its condition. You might find cheaper but i guarantee you wont find a better example unless its brand new in a shop!!! Its a 2009 model but was [list]bought in Feb 2010 and the spec is listed on the Specialized website on the following link. I have the books/manuals and receipts too.
Its a 17 inch frame and the bike is in absolutely imamculate condition...its never i am ashamed to admit, even been off road unless you count cutting across the park on the grass!!! I would say its covered only about 500 miles onroad. I bought it intending to to use it as a winter bike when it turned really nasty but ended up just spending these days using the turbo in the garage instead. It hasnt been ridden since last year (2010) as i'm a roadie i'm afraid, but its too good to have sitting there not to be used so if i can get a good price for it then i will let it go and put the money towards some new road wheels, otherwise i will just keep it and hope i eventually use it again, i dont intend giving it away at a silly price!
Included in the sale are 2 extra sets of tyres (boght a semi slick set to try and was given a spare set of teh standard omes) and 2 Specialized bottle cages. I will also include a couple of spare inner tubes i have still. The bike is currently fitted with 'slime tubes' to avoid having to fix punctures when its really cold!!! Obviously these are easily swapped for normal tubes should you prefer them.
Any questions then please feel free to ask and i am happy to send photos as required...sorry, i havnt worked out how to add them here. Mail me on email@example.com for pics or questions. Price is £1000 and i am based in Kent. I wont post but would be happy to meet within a reasonable travelling distance if you are serious about buying.
