This is a sale for Frameset (including rear shock and headset) only (does include seat clamp, derailleur hanger) in original box just as it came from Liteville. I will be recycling the brakes, transmission, dropper post and a few other bits. It is currently built up so you can try it for size (reckon 5’3” to 5’7”) with 160mm travel at both ends and currently has a 26” rear wheel and a 27.5” front (also takes 26”). Forks (Pikes) & tubeless wheels to be sold separately.

If you are reading this I am sure you have read about this extraordinary & exquisitely engineered MTB frame. The precision of steering & ability to cope with pretty much anything you throw at it are amazing. I have the original receipt for the 10 year transferrable warranty (check out their website for details). I also have original books & box and you can learn a lot from the downloadable manual.

Construction type:
Diamond frame in oversize with 4-bar linkage diamond frame design, up to 5x butted tubes.
Material:
Custom made Aluminium with special heat treating. Entry point at seat tube for internal dropper post cable routing.

The suspension system:
The LV 301 bearing concept is refined: 8 x double sealed stainless bearings combined with a pair of sealed needle bearings each in the top tube and the shock eyelets. 

The LV MK11 has been equipped with a FOX Float CTD Kashima coated shock with custom Liteville tuning. I have looked after this frame and heli-taped sections of the frame before building it. There are a few rub marks & scratches (see photos). It is one of the few things I have ever owned which is clearly built to last. I have just replaced most of the pivot bearings with LLU MAX types so these will last for years.

Its been a huge pleasure to build and ride and I have only ever seen one other on the trails, they are simply too expensive at over £2000. Inspection welcome: Bristol. The majority of the carriage cost is insurance so better to inspect & collect.
