Original version with the "sliding" dropouts for easy singlespeed conversion if you fancy.

Frame has some small marks and a small dent towards the back end of the top tube (nothing structural).

Spec as follows:

Frame is a medium with a Cane Creek C2 headset fitted (small dent to l/h side of top tube, about two inches fore of the seat tube and the size of a pea - not structural)
Maverick SC32 forks (great condition), 200mm steerer
Maverick front hub on Mavic XC717 rim
Hope pro 2 rear hub on XC717 rim
XT front & rear mechs and shifters
Hope Mono Minis with braided Goodridge hoses
Ritchey comp stem - new
Easton EC70 carbon post
New SRAM Cassette and chain

All in great condition - looking for £550 for full bike - now reduced to £500

Pics below - will ship with risers not the flats fitted in the pics - also the mudguard and seatpack not included

Great bike with a personal favourite spec ... when you've lost your ad it'll be because a mod's moved it to the '98+sale section! :wink:

Those forks look nice, pretty sure I could run those on my fatbike ;-)

I might be tempted to split, particularly if the front wheel and forks and/or the frame were to go first.....

:D

Fork and maybe front wheel might be interesting if the price & condition are right... :wink:

When was their last service (presumably at Sideways! :lol: )?

I've not had them serviced - not had the bike long.

They work fine, inc the lockout, no leaks, no stanchion damage and the stanchion guards are aok.

I would do the forks and wheel for £170....wouldn't want to split them.

:D

If the forks have never been serviced, then they'll need to be as they have a terrible compression spike as standard.

If they've been serviced previously, then they should have had this alteration done - in which case they're some of the nicest forks I've ever used (up until recently I owned a pair myself) 8)

Hi BB - no compression spike here so they must have been serviced at some stage - I agree with you, great riding forks - I wouldn't be selling it but for the calling of a CX bike!
