Hi All, I promised I hang on to this forever but the time has come where I have a few other projects planned and need to free up some funds. I purchased this frame new when they were first released. I think it was around 2004/5?? Not sure! Anyway, the frame and fork is in great condition with no dents or cracks, if im honest there are virtually no marks on the frame, a couple of minor scratches but I mean MINOR. It cleans up like new after a wipe down.



The build is in perfect working order with nothing requiring attention, spec is as follows.



Headset - FSA pig pro

Handlebar/stem - Azonic double wall bar, raceface prodigy stem

Cranks - Middleburn RS7 pro trials, as new apart from some minor bashguard markings

BB - Shimano UN73 "New"

Pedals - DMR v12, perfect working order, scrathed on ends

Front wheel - Mavic crossride radially laced with straight pull spokes

Rear wheel - Xlite phatso on Hope XC/Sport 36h

Skewers - unbranded allen key type skewers

Tyres - IRC Kujo (plenty of life left)

Brakes - Front brake consists of a XT lever and I think an LX parallel push v-brake caliper, yellow cartridge pads. Rear brake is a newish HS33 with I think Onza pads, Don't remember, but sticky and work well.

Drivetrain - New KMC chain with Gusset extra wide sprocket (to save the freehub body being eaten up)



I think that's it, any questions give me a shout. I thinks its a pretty rare breed especially in this condition. I'm gonna ask £450 delivered anywhere in the UK.

Thanks, it sure is. It saddens me to sell and now I've advertised it i just cant stop looking at it! I paid £450 for the frame alone back in the day but as my trials days are no more i want to apply the funds elsewhere :( I hope to find a good home for it although i imagine it would fetch more and be an easier sell if i broke it and flea bayed everything individually. I want to avoid breaking it though..

Such a great bike and would be a great shame to split this.

Would love to give this a good home but cant stretch to the asking price.

It sure is, it pains me to sell it but I just need the funds at the minute. If your not far off the asking price feel free to make an offer.

It's a lovely bike but they're such a specialist item they struggle to fetch much - older riders might have a soft spot for this type of thing but the younger trials riders
seem to treat frames as disposable/short-term items now and just want the latest geo.

I've seen really clean, well specced Mhz/Ghz's advertised £250-350 and still fail to sell so don't think I could make you an offer you would be happy with.
