I bought this frame with the intention of being my next build.

I've seen lots of RC200's for sale but this was the only RC300 I've seen, hence I got carried away.

Anyway the frame is 17" so too small for me at 6FT 2

It as Spare Graphics, Hope head set which needs top cap and its fitted with a UN73 Bottom bracket which is smooth.

Its got light scratches some chain suck and needs a good polish.

One of the cable guides needs fixing back on, its there but not fitted.

Here's the bad news, it as a tiny hairline crack in the head tube, there is a thread on here where ones been repaired but this might only be necessary if ridden in anger.

I'm looking for a new project so would concider a swap or sell for £220 posted.....

I only like hard tail bikes and would like to build something with disks. Maybe a late P7, money either way.

Ian

that crack looks more like stress from two welds being either side of what looks like 5-6mm of head tube and not from stress to the frame itself from use. i would be happy about it not going any further and be happy to ride it as is.

A mate of mine could be interested in this.

I've just emailed him, so I'll let you know soon.
