Ok guys i'm looking for the stuff you can't bothered to advertise that has some life left in it, or a complete bike. Mrs V8_shin_print is upgrading from a rayleigh lizard so we are not looking for top end here, something lighter than a bus and from this century would be a good start!
Rough spec, or parts required:
Alu XC hardtail frame, 14-16" with disc mounts
80-100mm fork (probably 80mm given size of frame)
Disc brakes (any, but juicy's would be good as i have them too)
Wheelset (straight, disc)
drivetrain (deore or up)
Total budget about £400, do-able?
There will obviously be more bits and pieces required but they kind of depend on the frame/bike, so what have you got for now?
