2013 model trek 7.4 hybrid 54cm i believe. I paid £600 for this from trek in april but have decided I prefer mountain bikes.
spec includes carbon forks, alloy frame, 27 speed with shimano deore rear gear.
this bike is immaculate, no wear or marks anywhere, no scratches or dents.
this is the link to treks website for this bike.
http://www.trekbikes.com/uk/en/bikes/20 ... 3_7_4_fx/#

apologies if its not in the right place
£350
also open to trades
obviously it will be thoroughly cleaned and oiled before sending, the pedals will be the original ones (red cage) and the accessories in the pictures are not included.
all marks visible in the pictures are just dirt from riding it in the rain. there is no damage anywhere other than the smallest of cable rub on the head tube.

this is being relisted as I originally sold it to a forum member on here but arrived with a dent/scratch in the downtube, thanks parcel2go. (picture on its way).
I have issued a full refund with no quibbles as im not a scam artist but im so Pi$$ed off with it I have decided to effectively give it away at £200. the parts are worth more than that but Im at odds with myself now as to what to do with it, Im pretty sure the dent is non structural Ive got bigger dents on my lts, but thats up to you to decide. trades for a full susser are still welcome but if you want it posted then you can sort it out, im not going through that again! its pretty much cost me 50 quid to dent my own bike :(

sorry for the delay for some reason the thread updates aren't being forwarded to me like they used to. anyway, I wouldn't say 5.10 is the max I can certainly make it too big for me by raising the seat to the max so I would say it would got to 6' without a problem.
this is the sizing page for trek if it helps.

mines the 20" (i think) will confirm tonight.
