The Wifes M800 for sale. Full o/s Alu frame with matching forks. All original and as-new. I think its an 16.5 inch. The bb is very high I've always thought.
Bar-ends and computer added. Thats it. And, no, the front brake cable isn't cut too short. Anybody on here will recognise the equipment so no need to go into it.......
Please make me an offer as the Klein went to the 1st offer made and I reckon it was a really fair price.
I'm waiting.......

The M800 was known as the 'Beast of the East' due to its 13" high bottom bracket compared to standard 11.5"(ish). Was supposed to allow the bike to find its way across higher obstacles and more technically challenging terrain. Pity its a 16.5 as i've been looking for one around the 19" mark for a while :( Wont get nearly the same money as that Klein tho.

Pretty sure this one is bigger then 16,5 inch! These bikes have kinda strange proportions due to bracket height and long headtube.
A friend of mine has one in this size and he´s 1.90 meter!! (Yep, with kinda normal proportions :wink: )

£550 :shock: :shock: :shock: That's a good price for an old Cannondale, typically these go for £150-200 depending on kit....nice one.

Take it NOW! I got 2 offers and they were both similar. A mate of mine had a red one with XT gear and it went for £400odd on feebay so I would snap it up ASAP if I were you.

Not a bad price (250 EUR works out about £175) an M800 frame went recently on eBay for £102, a complete M1000 went for £120 (well specced bike)...
