Hi Folks,

I have listed an Orange C-16R (19" frame I believe) on Ebay. ... 1586.l2649

I'd like it to go on to a good home where someone can give it a bit of TLC, especially as the missus had left it out for the scrap man at one point!!! It's a good bike and I had many enjoyable hours in the hills on it.

Due to being let down by buyer on Ebay the bike is still for sale. If anyone would like to make an offer for the bike they are more than welcome? Any questions/queries, or for more photos - please get in touch. Bike can be collected from the Redditch area.

Original Ebay listing is as below or can be viewed at ... &rt=nc with pictures.

Orange C-16R Mountain Bike

Bike was used a lot for about four years and has then been in shed/garage for a lot more! It did have a service approximately four years ago when I was trying to get back into cycling, in which I was told the headset would need replacing soon. It has then been in the shed for a few more years!

Would make a good restoration project, but bike should run fine with a service and a few bits replaced.

Frame is in decent condition with a few of the usual marks and scratches you would expect, plus a slightly larger one on down tube.

Frame measures (on inside from weld to weld): Top Tube: 21", Down Tube: 23", Seat Tube: 16".

Middle of bottom bracket to top of seat tube is 19".

I'm 5'11" and found the ride position comfortable.

Rockshox Quadra 21R front suspension with 50mm travel (Original fork is also available)

Deore LX front/rear mechs, headset and hubs. Front/rear mechs & chain should be serviceable but need good clean/degrease

Rapid Fire shifters and V brakes

Wheels are 26" Mavic 230TIB (couple of spokes are loose on rear).

Tioga tyres will probably need replacing due to age/left flat.

Seatpost and stem have some surface patches of rust.
