Getting tired of a heavy Carrera Vulcan and wanting to 'upgrade' - perhaps you've got something hanging around that you'd like to move on? Thinking more Boardman Comp and above than Carrera, if you see what I mean. Don't mind too much about the fork as I've got one ready to shift over (standard steerer, 100mm travel). I would think about upgrading the Vulcan but wheels alone would set me back a fair amount, as would a new drive train, and it's debatable how worthy the frame is, after all.
Looking for a 17 or 18" xc bike, suitable for a competent rider with plenty of experience riding in the peaks and trail centres, located in the general North to Midlands area (can travel, preferably within 2hrs of Sheffield).
Just a shot in the dark really. Perhaps you've got something in the shed you'd prefer goes to an eager but skint rider rather than eBay (not having much luck there!). Budget is circa £200 ish, give or take.
