This is a hard sale, but having built it a good few years ago now, I've not ridden it so time to let it go.

It's an 18 inch, and prior to building up I completely stripped and rebuilt it so it's as good as new. Decals were nos, but didn't stick too well due to their age. They are all there though and look good from a distance. I'd be happy to cover with helitape to preserve them, and I've a few spares I'll include.

Frame is in fine shape, there's no damage to speak of aside from a few small scuffs and cable rub.

What makes this frame different from the norm is it's fitted with a fox air rear shock and trunnion rather than the original rs super deluxe (This took some hunting for and cost a fair amount, but it really transforms the ride and reduces weight).

I'm after £400 >£375 inc uk postage for the frame and shock, plus I'll include the spare decals and a brand new set of bushings for the entire frame. Nothing wrong with the ones fitted, but it will future proof the frame.

The rear end is disc ready/capable with an adapter, and I have the correct kit for this that I can throw in for an extra £15 should you wish (cost £20 plus shipping from the us). Now included with the frame price.

I've also got spare fox rear shocks suitable for the frame, plus a couple of rs super deluxe shocks that I've had serviced and never used should you want to go original. Hapy to do a deal on these with the frame.

The whole build aside from the spins is available. Happy to do a deal if you want any of it.

I will also include the original gt seat post and clamp.

A teaser pics below. Link to build: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... ;hilit=Sts

If you want to run discs, I have a selection of wheels available also, including crossmax sl in silver, crosstrails in black, spinergy xyclone in black with yellow spokes, hope pro2 in red /717 in black to name a few. Also have a selection of sids, rebas and revelations, plus some fox rls.

Bundle update. Rear disc adapter now included in sale price.

Happy to take more pics of the frame and other spares.

Any questions, just ask.

Hi Ian,

Bit cheeky, but would you consider selling me one of your fox rear shocks and the appropriate trunnion?

I can let you have a standard trunnion and original shock if you want (though I imagine you have enough spares)

FWIW, in your position I’d keep one of the STSs. They’re a great ride.

Thanks
Matt

Which one would you keep?

I don't have a spare fox shock unless someone wants to buy a frame with the original rs. I do have a spare manitou air shock with trunnion from a jekyll. With a slight mod they fit like a glove (slight shaving of the trunnion to make it fit, talking a mm each side iirc). The bits that fit into the travel chips are the challenge. I had someone make something for me, but I'd probably have a go myself next time using some brake bosses (same thread as the jekyll trunnion bolts), and modify to fit (cut down and file, unless you can find some without the bit for a spanner).

This is essentially what I did with my other sts (I say i), using a fox rather than a manitou. This sts has the oem trunnion so no effort needed.

I did message Rampage but he seems to have gone quiet. That’s interesting about the brake posts, I’ll look into that.

BTW, Do you still have a spare XO 10 speed rear mech?

Do you know whether they are 11 or 12 teeth jockeys?

How much do you want for them?

Bump. A knackered frame just sold on eBay for £280. My frame is miles better, fully working and has the very rare air shock at the rear (someone was selling just the shock and trunnion on here recently for around £200 alone iirc), spare bushings and disc adapter.
