Great example of this classic bike. Never crashed and rarely used for anything more than xc rides. This bike has spent most of it's life in the garage, not ridden in at least the last 5 years. Some scratches from loading onto bike rack / transport. A few points...

Needs new rear tire.

Rear wheel was new in 2003. Cones need slight tighten otherwise ok.

Some marks on frame. 99% from bike being on bike rack rather than stone chips or crash damage.

Frame size is 20".

Saddle worn on edges. Grips worn.

Brakes ok. Rear could do with a bleed. Bite ok but stopping power was not great. Might be due to wet rims during test or pads may want replacing.

Front shocks could do with oil top up or service.

Front gears need cable adjust.

Plenty more photos available.

Cambuslang, Glasgow
£180

Wow thats a peach shame I am at the opposite end of the country sounds like it needs a lot of TLC and a few wing wangs throwing at it.

I guess I would cough £180 if that included courier...like CycleSent

I will check out couriers and try and find a box big enough. Should be doable! My email is alan.james.lindsay@gmail.com if you can drop me a message for exchanging details

Thanks

What do the forks use for a spring? Air, coil or elastomers?

I believe they are elastomers, though springs should be available on internet...?
