I've just listed this on ebay with a BIN of £650, but if someone here can collect then they can have it for £575. The RRP was £1,299 and I have ridden it six times!

I bought this with good intentions of returning to mountain biking, but I really am a roadie now so she has just sat in my shed unused and unloved. She has seriously only been ridden six times and has never ever been crashed.

She measures 18" from the centre of the bottom bracket to the top of the top tube. I am just under 6' and she fits me perfectly.

Although she is pictured with no pedals, I will put some basic flats on her so the buyer can at least ride her away.

The full spec is surprisingly good, with decent American Classic wheels, 2x10 SRAM gears and Avids:

Frame: LDA Triple Butted 7005 Aluminium
Fork: Rock Shox Recon Gold TK 100mm
Rear Derailleur: Sram X7 10 Speed
Shifters: Sram X7 Trigger
Brakes: Avid Elixir R 160mm
Chainset: Sram X7 42 / 28
Wheelset American Classic MTB Terrain Disc
Tyres: Upgraded to Schwalbe Nobby Nics
Saddle: Barelli Cr-Mo Rail
Seatpost: Barelli Alloy
Handlebars: Kore Alloy Riser II 660mm / 31.8mm
Stem: Kore Race Alloy 100mm / 31.8mm
Headset: Sealed Cartridge
Front Derailleur: Sram X7
Weight: 24.5 lbs / 11.11 kg

So, this bike retailed at £1,299. It has been ridden twice and is now up for sale for less than half the RRP. Sounds like a bargain to me.

Collection only from either Kettering or Northampton.

There is one pic below, but more can be seen on the ebay ad - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161085219414? ... 1555.l2649
