nice, they have Scott Mathauser Super brake pads fitted to them - probably knackered but never the less great brakes

Did someone here win the Future Shocks ?
I hope they were better wrapped than the Forks i won
just picked up from post office .....
if the steerer tube wasnt protruding out the packaging
they would have fallen out the crisp packet box they sent were in..

Well that's Ebay for you.
Just messaged seller with photos of his packaging and informed him the xc600
are infact xc500 with 24mm stanchion not 26mm and leaking oil every where
and got the price of postage refunded
So fairplay to him..

A sweeter deal yes after shock of packaging
i was going to return them as the bridge has the bolts rounded,their covered in fluid A seal kit for these go for 120 pound ,i only needed a crown for some xc700
so the seller would of been 13 pound down on postage anyhow.
at least the the brakes cleaned nice and work fine..

And should be a nice little project for the winter months
