Looking to sell my Bombtrack Hook EXT gravel frameset plus some 650b wheels to suit. For ease I’d prefer to sell as a single ‘rolling chassis’ but could be prepared to split. I’m thinking £550 and can post if need be.
Bad points first: There’s rubbing on the seatstays where a saddlebag wore through heli-tape and paint, and marks on the forks where Salsa Anything Cages have dug into the topcoat. All superficial damage but annoying nonetheless.
Frame is a medium, but it’s quite a big medium. I’ve included a photo of it built up: I’m 181cm and ride a 56 road bike for comparison. It’ll take 650b x 53 (27.5 x 2.1) or 700c x 40mm tyres. I built it up to ride the Dales Divide on a couple of years back and it handled that nicely. It’s the same frame that Bombtrack sell as their Audax model so will equally build up just fine as a more traditional tourer or even winter road bike as there’s mounts for ‘guards. It’ll come with FSA headset and FSA GXP-sized BB, and 2 sets of thru axles (a pair with and a pair without ‘qr’ levers)
Wheels are Hope RS4 hubs (Shimano freehub) laced to 650b Raceface Arc 27 Rims with Pillar aero spokes. There’s <1000km old 48mm wide Gravel King SK tyres set up tubeless, and 160mm Shimano Ice Tech rotors. Rims have a few scratches and scrapes but run true.
I’m based South Lakes for viewing and can provide more pictures showing good and bad if you want.
And should anyone be up for a PX or a trade, I’m after a short travel 29er MTB in large at the mo.
