Hi there,

I bought this recently with the intention of fixing up for a friend who's recently got in to riding, however it's just too much work for me to be doing at the moment.

It's clearly been in storage (probs uncovered) for a while and hence is in a pretty poor state. Here is the original listing:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290904728011? ... 1497.l2649

Known issues:

dent in frame (and paint missing) see detailed photos below - frame is straight and true. As you'll probably know these frames are wafer thin.

forks feel pretty stiff and could do with a service.

Front wheel has been tampered with and needs replacing

Brakes actually feel very good, however need new pads

chain and cassette a little rusty, but could probably be brought back to life with a bit of love.

Easton CNT bars - well corroded

tyres not included

All that said this is the basis of a quality lightweight MTB and Ideally i wouldlike to get roughly what I paid for it.

£275 O.N.O (exc.shipping or fees) now £220...
