It's a bit of a parts bin special but there are some nice bits on that. Certainly good for the money.
Not sure what the frame is but the forks and cranks look good.
My thoughts exactly :/
Also have to chuck my tupoppence in
Personally i dont see the great appeal of cooks. Admittedly those are less likely to crack as have so many ive seen(and owned.
Given the cranks are in nice condition and have pace rings then £120 should cover that and about 50-70 for the forks dependent in internal condition.
the wheels are probably XT,cant quite make them out on my screen
Thumbies possibly deore and the xt mechs.
Overall if you wanted to split it you could make a couple of hundred possibly 350
For this you could nip down to hellfrauds and buy a bike that wouldnt survive 6 months use on the road never mind offroad.
maybe sell the cranks to pay for other bits you want to upgrade to.
As a runaround it would be great for that which is kind of what it is about really.
The other thing i feel i have to add is if a guy had offered my that bike in a pub for only £100 then i would guess it wasnt his to begin with
I mean, no offence to you but unless this person was known to you and not a complete stranger then the chances of it being knicked are about 99%.
Plus. Anyone who owned and built it would know exactly what it was worth and would not be asking a ton only. chances are this is stolen.
I suggest that you take note of the serial number and post that up.Or a pic of the underside of the BB shell.
Of course it might just be luck and the seller was selling Dad's/gramps bike without knowing anything,just looking for extra drinking funds or something.It's just the £100 figure is making me suspect foul play.
Im frequently wrong
