It’s very green, isn’t it!
Brand, spanking new, shiny, green, 41cm (that’s 16″ for those of us who like miles, feet, inches, pints and the like) Kinesis XC 130 frame.
I won’t try and make up lots of spiel about it or get all technical, as the clever people at Kinesis can do it better, but I will say that it looks ACE. Not just the colour (which is ace), but there’s lots of “oh that’s a good idea” little touches all over the place – tube profiles that create natural gussets and the like. There’s a lot of thought gone into it, but it still looks like a nice, clean-lined classic hardtail.
Cheapest I’ve found it for online so far is 1st gear cycles’ £300 plus postage deal…not that they have any in stock, but that’s not the point.
I’ll sell this one (semi-begrudgingly, as it does look cool and I bet, if I had the time, it’d build into a great bike) for £250. Including postage (in a proper box, with padding, not wrapped in a bin bag and stuffed in a post box!).
Paypal/bank transfer/cheque (non-bouncing variety) all fine. Email’s dgpowell [at] uclan.ac.uk. Taa!
