    17″ Cove Hustler frame with Fox RP23 and Chris King Headset.
    NOT complete bike, frame only.

    Recently replaced seals in shock. Brand new pivot bolt on frame and bearings pretty new. Usual rubs and chainsuck marks. Bit of paint flaking off near rear dropout.

    £195 posted.

    Yes, you’ve spotted it,this frame has been repaired…but read on.
    The weld on the top/seat tube cracked, quite common on these frame apparently. Possibly caused by using a seatpost shim. After much ringing around and research “you can’t repair alloy frames…”, Argos Frame Builders recommended Vernon Barker, the only guy with the kit and expertise to do this work.

    He also did the respray. I have ridden it for about a year since with no problems at all.

    So if you fancy a punt, £195 for a 5″ hack bike frame …:-)

    Sorry about that, they just found it in goods in at work. Apparently it’s been there for a few days. Haven’t had a chance to get a proper look yet but thanks for wrapping it so well.
