NOW £150!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FOR SALE***********************************************

2001 GIANT MCM TEAM (frame only)

Size - Medium 19"

Weight ONLY 2.7lb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The lightest Mountain Bike frame in the world is currently 2.05lb, so this frame is still seriously light even by todays standards! And it is strong as hell.

I am only selling her as I cannot afford to put the parts onto it that it deserves. She is fully stripped ready for for some lovely parts to be fitted to restore it to its former glory.

THIS FRAME in particular only did one years racing and has been hanging up since mid 2002 completely unused since. It was REALLY REALLY well looked after. When built up with decent parts the MCM is a ROCKETSHIP like no other and the results it achieved in 2001 are the evidence of that.

She is still in what any normal person would call very good condition. The photos I have attached obviously show that.

In 2001 to buy the frame alone it cost £1,000, therefore I think that around £300 is a reasonable price, especially given that it has done such low mileage and is still in really good order.

Thank you for taking a look,

Johnny (02891459484 / 0749950189 (text)

Try resizing the photos first. They're pretty useless like this.

I know that £150 for this weapon is one hell of a bargain - and it is in beautiful order because I treated like royalty and kept it in my bedroom

It has been hanging up on my wall since early 2002

it was a grand new in 2001 and i am giving it away at £150

this bike won the all irelands in 2001 and was 2nd in the british champs and rode for ireland in the euros and worlds and it means the world to me because of that - it has always been my pride and joy and i am a very confident seller and very confident about how presentable this frame still is

thanks
