I got this for my offroad commute, then promptly changed jobs, so this bike has had around 400km put on it since I’ve had it. It’s lovely, but is taking up room and I can’t justify hanging on to it when I just tend to grab a mountain bike if I have time for a ride.
Everything’s stock apart from the tyres, which are Bontrager GR2 Teams. The rear is set up tubeless, but the front is tubed and has a couple of patched snakebites from where I forgot the bike had rigid forks and tiny tyres for a few unfortunate seconds. The Espoirs it came fitted with will go with the bike, as well as the (worn) XT SPDs if you want ’em.
The bike’s in great condition – not surprising bearing in mind the low mileage – with the exception of the front tyre. The groupo is entirely Shimano Sora 9s apart from the Tektro cable calipers and the Praxis crankset. My plan was to wear the Sora stuff out and then spend more on a better 1x drivetrain, as the frame and carbon fork deserve it.
This is a tidy bike and I’d love the next owner to give it the outings it deserves.
