Thanks for looking, I'm selling my most newly acquired of my bikes due to going on a bike diet and trying to upgrade to getting a downhill rig. Spec and gallery are below.
Based on its condition and amount of use I would like £650 ONO.
Email is in profile and I am based in Manchester. I am happy to answer any questions or supply more specific pictures.
The bike is stock, it will be sold without the bottle carrier pictured and will be sold with the original pedals.
The bike has covered no more than 150 miles (50 of which were on the middlewood way). Its in what I believe to be excellent condition, however the frame has the usual scuffs and the odd scratch, nothing serious and can provide more photos if required. There is chainslap, it is shown in the pictures however (and I'm hoping that its easily made out) it is on a helitape chain protector on the frame and not on the paintwork.
