All interesting responses, always good to get points of view outside your own.
Also, your advert and responses do come across a bit stroppy in places, if you don't mind me saying.
Yea, it is all leaving me with a little bit of a bad taste.
I realised at time of listing that my expectations and the typical STW buying expectation may not be in sync, growing to realise that are drifting further and further out of sync.
To me bikes are tools, a tool has certain requirements, if something fulfils those requirements (geometry, suspension, structural integrity in this case) then it's a goer.
It might just have to go to the ebay wolves
Leaving a bad taste because no-one wants to buy your frame ?
Just because you perceive bikes as 'tools' to be lobbed on the floor, given to mates and then sold on in a completely unrideable state (mechnhanger) obviously the general STW public doesn't agree.
If i'm buying a frame I want to know I can have it built and ready to go ASAP, having to source my own mech hanger when it's you that owns the frame is bordering on the ridiculous.
Personally i'd have to buy 2 hangers as I always have a spare for a frame... so that's £40 on top straight away.
