Bike is in excellent condition. It has been ridden only 7-8 times(am second owner but first had used bike once) and has a few minor scratches and a little bit of cable rub. Bike is totally stock apart from the addition of tricky Middleburn cable oilers. I bought the bike as a step up but have found I prefer the feel of a hardtail as i ride mainly on single-track. Bike is much more capable than i am. I'm going down the steel HT route - would consider px with similar age/condition Cotic Soul/Genesis Altitude etc.
£1300 for quick sale before the bay beckons - bike now retails at £2300.
