1998 Specialized Ground Control FSR

17" from centre of bottom bracket to top of seat tube

Rock Shox Deluxe rear shock with rebound adjustment

I've just bought another frame from the forum, so will offer this up to help pay for it.

Nice frame, will build back up in to great bike. Easily upgradeable to have more modern rear shock and more travel.

Bit of play in rear shock bush where it joins the linkage, but easily and cheaply replaced. Doesn't appear to be any play in the rear bushes, which seem smooth enough through movement too.

Paint condition is mixed. Firstly it could do with a good clean. On one side the decal are all pretty good, still has the Leisure Lakes decal on it from when it was bought new. However the paint around the bottle mount holes on the underside has flaked away. Could be tidied up without too much effort, or whole frame could be stripped and repainted.

I'm asking £50 for the frame or £115 for the full bike :)

Postage is no problem. Can send via 24hr courier for £10, tracking number etc supplied.

Can build in to a full bike if there is any interest?

Rough spec:
Manitou Long travel forks (made for Specialized), just been serviced.
LX rear mech
XT front mech
LX shifters (8 speed)
Specialized chainset with Middleburn 32/22 rings
Pair of Specialized Stout/LX hub wheels on Black Mavic rim brake wheels
V-Brakes with Avid levers
Tom Richey seatpost
Specialized saddle
Specialized stem and flat bar with bar ends
As new Tioga 2.1" tyres

Would be asking £115 plus £10 postage for the above. Not a bad bike, especially for the money!
