I might sell my 853 Kili Comp frame, forks & wheels soon* to fund a 29er (yes I've said that before) so just having a look to see what's out there...

Got my eye on some cheap wheels on the Merlin website so this is just a shout to see if anyone's getting rid of a frame and/or frame & forks. Needs to be big enough to fit my lanky 6'3" frame, ideally disc and rim brake on both frame and forks (long shot I know!)

I don't mind something tatty so long as it's structurally sound... and steel / cro-mo :wink:

* open to swaps or p/x for my Kili Comp frame (with or without SIDs and lush M750 XT on Mavic X517 non-disc wheels + new-ish Maxxis tyres) if you're after going back to 26" :lol:
