I bought this as a complete bike, as I wanted the XT kit for my Overbury's build.
This is far too big to be of any use to me, so offering it up here.
It measures up at 21.5" c to c seat tube, and 23" top.
It's in great condition (as was the xt kit :D ) and comes with the original stem, bars, seatpost, silky smooth BB and headset.
Some pics....

Wheels just for picture purposes and not included.
I'd prefer collection for this, so will not be offering postage to start off with.

£40

I bet the schwinn high sierras were made by Giant and this is around the time Giant started to push their own brand name more heavily due to pressure from chinese companies taking the western manufacturing contracts. love that smoked chrome! Schwinn offended Giant by soliciting the china bicycles company to build bicycles at a lower cost. I believe there was some sort of agreement in place prior to that and when schwinn broke that Giant decided to go after schwinn's market.

If this was Vinevos I'll attest to the superb condition of this frame.

What size is the seat post Mark?

Thanks Ash.

I'm willing to post this now, but you'll need to be patient with me.
The guy I get bike boxes from at the LBS has buggered off to France to watch the tour :roll:
