UP FOR GRABS… this classic 29er, a Salsa Dos Niner. It was the final version of salsa’s first 29er, a soft-tail offering 1 inch of travel. This may sound pants but its fantastic: rides like a hardtail, and all the 1 inch bumps have disappeared. Its really damned fast. Indeed its was until recently a local KOM winner on strava (Square and Compass to swanage). There are no pivots as such, the chainstays flex, giving it a very nice ride. Very light too.
Fair condition, one micro dent that I put on in its second mile (Under the top,tube, will add a picture) And you will find a few marks and cosmetic scratches. 2 spare mech hanger included (worth £50). Salsa QR worth £34.99.
They were around £900 when new. It has a Dia Compe headset, and a couple of neoprene guards: one for the rear shock (so its in A1 condition), and one for the chainstay. there is also a bender fender that has kept crud away from the rear shock.
Suits folk from 5’10” ish to 6’3″ ish. … . Its a size large. Takes a 27.2 post.
Only want £300 inc uk delivery. Euro delivery around £40 (just ask for a shipping price).
Sad to see it go.
Private sale, this is my own personal bike (frame). no vat or warranty obviously.
