Reluctant sale of my trusty steed. Only selling as I now have access to a cycle to work scheme and have decided to treat myself.

Full original spec as follows, (with upgrades/changes in brackets)

Weight (kg):13.6

Frame Material:6061 Aluminium
Fork Brand:SR Suntour
Fork Model:XCR 100mm 4in Travel


Seat Angle:72 Degrees
Head Angle:69 Degrees


Brakes Brand:Shimano


Cranks Brand:Shimano (recently upgraded to SRAM)
Bottom Bracket Brand:Shimano (recently upgraded to SRAM)
Bottom Bracket Model:Square Taper
Rear Derailleur Brand:Shimano
Rear Derailleur Model:Alivio
Front Derailleur Brand:Shimano
Front Derailleur Model:Altus
Shifters Brand:Shimano
Shifters Model:Alivio
Cassette:8spd 12-32, Shimano (Recently upgraded to SRAM)


Rims Brand:Rigida
Rims Model:Zac 19
Rear Hub Brand:Shimano
Tyres Brand:Scott (Currently running Schwalbe Land Cruiser)
Front Tyre Model:Ozon (As above)
Rear Tyre Model:Ozon (As above)

Contact Points:

Handlebar Brand:Scott
Handlebar Model:Riser
Grips/Tape Brand:Scott

Pedal Type:Platform
Chainstays (in):16.75
Front Wheel Weight (kg):2.3 kg

Seat Tube (in):17 in
Standover Height (in):31.25 (in)
Top Tube (in):22.5 in
Wheelbase (in):42 in
Bottom Bracket Height (in):12.5 in

All of the above upgrades have been ran for a maximum of 100 miles so all are effectlively as new. The full drivetrain (rear cassette/chain/front chainring) have all been renewed in the last 100 miles

The bike will need a new real wheel/hub as the freewheel isn't connecting so the cassette just spins. A new wheel for £30 would do the trick, which doesn't seem a lot, but with the upgrades recently setting my heart on a new bike, it isn't economical to upgrade it.

The frame is in very good condition, just the odd mark here and there from disagreements with bushes etc and I will put some pics on later rather than the stock photo below. the forks have been recently fully serviced and re-greased, altho they do have a little surface rust, but this has no impact on their performance at all.

It will be a sad day for me to let this go as it has served me well but the time is right to move onto pastures new so looking for a good home for it.

Price £90 (collection from Hartlepool preferred) although would be prepared to courier if cost paid by purchaser)

Any questions please ask
