ohhhhhhh goooooodie just been checking

the fella i bought it from put in his ad

"The frame is in good condition, not bent but a coule of scratches as you would expect, Mavic 221 fornt wheel fitted and I have a matching rear to give away with it."

The rear wheel fitted is on suntour hub on a umt-17 rim (never heard of rim advise)

Front fitted wheel is a white industries hub on a mavic 221

spare wheel is a XT M737 on a mavic 221 with XT QR :P
