WTD: small bike for Mrs V8_shin_print – complete or bits
Ok guys i’m looking for the stuff you can’t bothered to advertise that has some life left in it, or a complete bike. Mrs V8_shin_print is upgrading from a rayleigh lizard so we are not looking for top end here, something lighter than a bus and from this century would be a good start!
Rough spec, or parts required:
Alu XC hardtail frame, 14-16″ with disc mounts
80-100mm fork (probably 80mm given size of frame)
Disc brakes (any, but juicy’s would be good as i have them too)
Wheelset (straight, disc)
drivetrain (deore or up)
Total budget about £400, do-able?
There will obviously be more bits and pieces required but they kind of depend on the frame/bike, so what have you got for now?

Hey…Posted 9 years ago
Mrs. mdr75 is getting rid of her Giant Yukon frame in size small(17″).
I have bought her a full suss frame and other bits so it’s got to go along with the stock wheels that came with the bike, cassette etc….
If you’re interested i can email pics later…
Let me know..
I’ve got some bits and pieces that might fit the bill: front wheel Hope XC on Mavic f519 (discs or vees), rear wheel xt hub on mavic 317 rim, deore rear mech and cassette and a 2002 Marzocchi x-fly fork (80mm of travel, very light and airsprung so easy to set up for a low weight rider). Would be after about £60 for the wheels, £50 for the forks and £10 for the deore bits and bobs. Let me know if you’re interested and i’ll do some pics tonight.Posted 9 years ago
mdr75 and GKwilly: Thanks for the offers, but they are too big, the missus is only 5’4″, she can ride a 17″ bike but finds it a stretch.
foxyrider: i might be interested, is there anything included with the frame? (seatpost, headset, etc?)
oldgit: what size is that? how much are you looking for minus forks and saddle?
finbar: can you do some pictures of the wheels and deore stuff for me?
cheers all so far!
PS. I think my email should be visible?Posted 9 years ago
I have the old headset with it – not sealed bearings but in a bearing race – still works though – needs a bit of greasing etc – I also have a Raceface post if you want it and a girls saddle (terrys) then would make it £50 + delv also for and extra £10 I got a nice Hope seatpost QR (black)Posted 9 years ago
