Stanton Sherpa 853 Reynolds Steel frame. It’s been well used and no reason for that to not continue. It’s a Gen 1 frame in 21″. It only works with 29″ Wheels. The geometry is the same as the Gen 2 frames. I bought the frame recently to do a ‘Monstercross’ build but sourcing parts at this time has proven difficult hence me selling. The previous owner had a tiny crack in the non drive chainstay which was professionally repaired and used extensively for a couple of years with no issues. It’s also been drilled for a stealth dropper seatpost. The hole in the bottom of the seat tube for the dropped cable to exit was re-enforced by adding an extra ring of steel around it. (See pics). Also there is a cable guide brazed on at the top of the downtube together with cable guides (included) on the bottle cage mounts for stealth routed dropper post. It does have a fair few scrapes and scratches but they’re all very small. Overall it’s in good condition for it’s well used status. I’m genuinely gutted to not be doing the big tyre, drop bar, bikepacking build I’d planned but needs must!

Seat tube: 30.9mm
Headtube: 44mm top and bottom
135mm QR dropouts
