For sale my beloved FSR, I have had this bike from new, bought in New Zealand & brought it with me when i came to the UK, now its time to return to the South I cant find space to take it so I'm looking for a good home for him.

I've mainly used this bike for commuting the couple of miles to work so kept it running nice all these years.

The frame is a medium, in good condition, some scratches & cable rub. Most components are original, the wheels, tyres, grips, chainrings & cassette have been replaced through its life. Everything is working fine but my boyfriend tells me there is some slight play in the lower rear shock bushing, but apparently this can be replaced easily!

Kit includes:
Rock Shox Judy C Forks, 3.15" travel
Rock Shox Deluxe Rear Shock, 4.3" travel
Dia-Compe 735 Direct Pull brakes, Avid SD-1.0 L levers
Shimano Deore LX RapidFire SL Shifters
Shimano Deore LX Front Mech
XTR rear mech
Specialised bars, stem, headset, seat, post, BB & crankset - Specialized ForeArm Comp, 22/32/42 teeth.
Non original:
9spd shimano cassette
Shimano deore front wheel
Quando rear hub on x-plorer Rim
Kenda tyres
SPD pedals

The frame is blue, red & white with red forks.

Please PM any questions, I'm not sure what other info to put up.

I'm currently in Southampton but will be travelling upto Lancashire this wkend so could organise drop off!!

£150.00

if your unsure, you could edit this post for now (blank it?) and ask in the 'whats my xyz worth' threads on here

or use the search function and have a look at previous sales of the same


can i ask what your other bikes are? glad you wont be bikeless! that would be a crime

Apologies for jumping the gun, a tad too small for me, gutted! :cry:

Good luck with this, i'm sure it will go in no time at that price - a real bargain.
