Genesis Latitude 853 frame in size large/19". Tapered headtube, complete with a dedicated high quality FSA headset. In excellent overall condition, just a few little stone chips here and there. Works best with a 120/130mm fork and builds into a lovely hardcore trail hardtail. 2012 model which has done very little mileage. £220 ono picked up from the Lookout at Swinley Forest, Berkshire or surrounding area :-) I do regular trips to Bristol too, so could drop off there. Not posting, sorry.

Damn you, I had been looking for one of these recently but decided to go with another build in the meantime.
Just out of interest what height does the 19 inch suit?

It's a smidge too big for me! I'm 5'9" with 32" inside leg. I find the standover height a bit high and the reach to the bars a bit too long. My guess would be a size range of 5'10" maybe 11" to about 6'2" . It rides beautifully as you'd expect from 853, comfy, but still stiff and direct at the front end. I'd love another if I could find a 17.5 :-)
