Kinda reluctantly selling my RM Element!

The bike’s been used but well looked after. Previously belonged to Vondally on here, I bought it from him in 2016 and built it up to use as a light-ish full suss for adventure races. Easily the best climbing full suss I’ve ever ridden, and with it set up a bit like the ‘BC Edition’ version (shorter stem and longer fork than standard) it holds its own on the downs well enough as well.

The ABC pivot bushings were replaced in March 2020 and are about 4 rides old. The Arch S1 wheels are only 2 rides old, were bought from Winstanleys in May 2020 and have done maybe 40 miles tops since then. Reverb was serviced by Rebound Sus in December, so has a tiny bit of lateral twist but isn’t saggy/squishy. Fork and shock were last serviced around about June 2019 but, again, have had little use since.

Frame – Rocky Mountain Element 970 (2013)
Fork – Fox Float 32 DRCV, 120mm travel
