Yeah, I'd say no more than 50 notes for it. Mine had XT throughout, with purple anodized bits BITD. It started life at 28lb, got mine down to around 24ish, maybe less. I did 1000s of miles on mine, and it never let me down, but I upgraded in due course. Still miss it though. Not got the room or cash to bid on this one though, so good luck ;)

Failing that, find another wife :lol:

Are you all on daft juice?? First, its an aluminium frame, the cable stops are riveted on. Next, look at the welds and the size of the tubes!

Tutty tut tut tut.

Heres mine, also available in swirly green with anything from Altus through to XTR as they were the first cheap and cheerful aluminium frames available. Claud Butlerm DB and a few others including shops own brand.
