    2009 Transition Preston Freeride frame in medium with fox DHX5.0 shock.

    This makes a great all mountain / heavy duty XC bike as it has very similar geometry to the Bottlerocket but with a slightly longer seat tube and a little lighter making it more capable of riding up a mountain. You could take this to Cwmcarn and ride it up Twych Trail and then down the black run at as it can handle both.

    £575 collect from Bristol, happy to post for cost.

    Frame hasn't been used in anger and looks like new, I got it as a crash replacement from Transition in September.

    "The Preston FR is designed for the agressive trail rider that loves to earn their way to the top by pedaling but also needs a bike that is burly enough for freeriding on the way down. Make no mistake, the Preston FR is no large travel huck bike. It is designed for the rider that still wants to feel the trail and has some finesse for flowing technical freeride lines. We shy away from calling the Preston FR an all mountain bike even though it is superb on long singletrack epics. The Preston FR is built with strength in mind to tackle those rough freeride trails without weighing you down."

    Gets fantastic reviews:

    NSMB.com reviews the Preston FR
    "You're getting a high-quality frame from a company that truly believes it is producing a no-compromise product suited to a rider who enjoys the bold and burly, but also has the skills and range to appreciate a bike that excels at a wide range of tasks."

    Hick Hucksters review the Preston FR
    "The Preston railed corners with minimal sus-pension movement, so it felt extremely stable and predictable. It really feels like more than 4" travel when landing bigger hits. I don't know whether it's just the Preston design or the Romic rear shock, but I like it. "

    Bikemagic.com review the Preston FR
    "If we're honest with ourselves, there aren't that many situations that absolutely demand 6+in of travel out back, and plenty that benefit from a handier tool. It's clearly not for everyone, but we suspect that there'll be a lot of people for whom the Preston is exactly what they've been waiting for."
