Carver 96er MTB frame with eccentric bottom bracket. High quality polished aluminium frame designed to work with a 29er front fork and wheel, and a standard 26" rear wheel. I understand it will also work with a 26" front and 24" rear for smaller riders. Size is 16.5" from centre to top of seat tube, with an effective top tube length of approx 21" ~ it's a "small". The eccentric means you can run gears or as a one speed or hub geared bike. It has mounting for V brakes or for ISO disc brakes. Uses standard 1 1/8th headtube, 31.8 seat tube with a 27.2 internal diametre. Condition is excellent, hardly a mark on it.Weight as pictured with a seat collar and the eccentric fitted is 1832 grams! As far as I know, Carver have no UK importer at the moment, but when these were last brought in, RRP was around £330, £75 ono. Collection only from Bracknell please. :-)

Yeah... I wish I could think of something to do with it.

Absolutely. One of those For Sale items that keeps drawing you back - it's too small, it makes no sense, but there's something about it....

Dum question. Am I right in thinking that external BB bearings go into the eccentric BB and not the frame?
