Frame shows a few marks as you’d expect from a mountain bike. I have tried to show in the photos. Main marks are a paint chip on the seat stay bridge, and the seat tube. There is a rub mark below the bottle cage from a restrap. There is some tyre sealent residue on the seat tube that is impossible to get off. Wheels has tyre sealent residue on the rims as well. The tape of the frame is protecting it from the light battery for night riding.

Forks and shock have lovely clean stantions.

Pedals, Garmin mount and bottle cage not included. The One Up tool in the headtube will be replaced with a Hope Head Doctor top cap and DMR Grips rreplaced with ODI Lock Ons.,3/Trek/Fuel-EX-9-8-29,23637
