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.

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.

Much as i want this, it's too small and so i'll have to pass.

Had the frame inspected today and the crack shouldn't get any worse and it doesn't effect the strength.

As well as what you can see in the photo it is about 5mm along the weld.

It is possible tobe repaired by being re-welded without spoiling the this shouldn't spoli the looks either......
