My son wants a new bike and wants us to build one. I'm probably
Going to break one of my bikes for bits.

So I'm looking for a suitable frame, small/15-16".

I'm thinking XC hardtail, reasonable quality, in either good condition or if it is tatty cheap enough so I can get it powder coated. Preferably take 100-120mm forks and discs.

Particularly fond of British brands, Ragley, On One, Orange etc.

I am watching a couple on eBay at the moment but let me know if you have anything suitable.

Thanks

2010 Specialized Hardrock Disc frame, with headset in a 15.5" any good? In good condition and in a nice white/black/red colour scheme. Like this: http://www.evanscycles.com/products/spe ... e-ec019400

I'd be looking for £50 delivered?

Boxed and ready to go. Some extra bits popped in the box too, to help your lad build it up.

Just wanted to take the opportunity to publicly thank the earl of Barnet for the frame, great deal, great frame, well packaged and posted.

My 12 year old son is now pestering me to finishing building it!

Thanks Matt.
