Well, of all the bikes I'm selling due to my impending move, this is by far the one I'll miss the most. In fact, it's the one that got me (back) into cycling. I bought it last summer and have commuted hundreds, possibly thousands, of miles on it since then. It rides beautifully, it's light, it looks fantastic, and I will be very sorry to see it go! It also has numerous upgrades from standard spec, detailed below. I have anecdotal evidence that this year of the Flyer was the lightest, as it was pre-some EU safety crackdown. What I can say for sure is that you don't get a carbon fork any more.

Price is £250. Postage is possible.

Frame: Reynolds 520, 61cm, horizontal dropouts with Allen key tensioners
Headset: Cane Creek (upgrade)
Stem: Deda Newton (upgrade)
Bars: Ritchey Force Lite, cut down (upgrade)
Grips: PlanetX (upgrade)
Levers: Avid Speed Dial 7 (upgrade)
Brakes: Shimano Sora
Wheels: Alexrims AT-400 rims, Formula Track sealed hubs
Tyres: Vittoria Rubino (upgrade)
Seatpost: Genesis carbon
Saddle: Selle San Marco Ponza (upgrade)
Fork: Genesis carbon
Cranks: Sugino Messenger
Chain: SRAM (upgrade)
Gear combination: 46 x 15

The one issue with the bike is that after some maintenance at the LBS (broken spoke) they didn't tighten the fixed-side lockring properly, with the consequence that the thread stripped on the fixed side of the hub. Therefore the 15t cog has been moved to the other side and locked on with a new BB lockring.
