Decided to sell 2 of my bikes to fund a new one and my only recently built up Mountain Cycle Slix will have to go.
It really is fatal looking up new bikes online isnt it!?

Frame is a large, has a MONSTER headtube, the main bearing has a slight amount of play but not really noticable unless you are looking for it in the shed. A few minor scratches on the paint work, but its in better condition than alot of newer bikes ive seen. Fox float rear shock

This bike was built up only a few months back so a few bits are brand new and only done (according to the evil that is Strava) less than 62 miles...

heres a few shots i have of her

some of the bits before they went on her

New blue Superstar headset,
Rock Shox Pikes, 95-140mm. few scratches on the lowers (none on the uppers)but ive put new oil in em and they run beautifully.
Blue Hope seat clamp
X Fusion HiLo adjustable seat post with remote.
Sunline saddle
SRAM shifter and new X7 rear 9spd mech.
New 9 speed cassette
Truvativ GPX2 cranks
Sram front shifter and a shimano 3 spd front mech
Diamondback 75mm stem
nukeproof warhead 760mm bars
Rims are single tracks with a Hope front hub and an unknown rear QR. rear has abit of a wobble and a flat spot or 2 but seems to run fine.
Tyres are Specialized dual compound ones (not the Advantages in some off the shots.)
The brakes wont come with the bike (sorry) as i want to chuck em on the new one. So the brand new Avid Elixir 5 MM's will be going on it instead (if i can get the new bike before this sells or i can post em out after?)

She is fairly light and will be a great xc bike that can handle more abuse than most flimsy xc rigs.

Looking for about 900ish

From headtube to seat tube is 21cm and could do a frame only I guess. How much?

It would help if was a Center seat cluster - center head tube top junction, measurements have to be "center-to-center", 21" seems pretty short!
i.e. like "top tube" in the following pic (doesn't need to go with a level and find the "effective top tube" length)

Will send you an offer for Frame & Forks

Well I'll go back out and do centre to centre, will probably add about an inch? Centre of bb to top of the top tube is also 21inches
