Selling my Saracen Tufftrax Retro Mountain Bike. I've been using it for a year or so but fancy a change. Happy to consider sensible offers via RB

Do you think I would be better of converting this back to 7 speed and having the gears indexed rather than the 10 speed friction?

I would say so, yes. Especially if the 7 speed set up is original. But even if it's not, going back to the original freehub will make it easier for a buyer to return it to original. I think friction shifting might put potential buyers off too.

(Been loving the Rockhopper, by the way. Think it will be going off to the powdercoaters this week. :D )

Thanks for the input Cassidy. I finally got round to changing it to an 8 speed cassette today which works fine with the 7 speed shifters in indexed mode (secret extra click).

Glad you’re getting good use out of the Rockhopper. Would love to see it when it’s all finished

That did the trick, got it sold for £120 (pending collection). If it hadn't sold it was going to be split...
