I've decided to keep my FS MTB so regrettably this has to go.

Review and spec:

Steel frame and forks.

It is a great bike and is in immaculate condition.

16" frame. I am just under 5 feet 9 inches tall and it's set up for me in the photos.

I am sure there is a geometry table for this bike somewhere on line.

There are some fantastic owners reviews and also several reputable Magazine reviews of this bike. The one below is the same bike just a different colour. They give them a colour change every couple of years:

Sram group set and has virtually no wear to it.

2 x 10 speed compact - 36t & 46t.

Sram X9 long cage rear mech; Sram X7 front mech.

Avid BB7 road Disc brakes.

Has new Jagwire cabling throughout as it had been stood for 18 months and it was best to replace them.

29 x 2.2 Continental Road Race tyres in excellent condition. These rims will also take a 700c road/touring tyre.

Woodchipper 2 handlebars.

The co-ordinating Crane Creek Mallet 2 SPD pedals also come with the sale.

Comes with the genuine Salsa rear rack which cost nearly £100 and two new and unused (still in their original packaging) Salsa anything front fork racks that were imported with the bike from the USA.

I would prefer collection from Hardwicke in Gloucestershire.

I would reluctantly post it by courier for an additional £35 but it would require a certain degree of re-assembly.

The courier delivers between 8 am and 6 pm and I would require a full address, mobile phone number and email address of the buyer as stipulated by the Courier Company.

Payment by Bank transfer only or cash on collection. Under no circumstances will I accept any other form of payment so please do not ask.

£695 or near offer.

These are the genuine extras that go with the sale:

2 x Salsa Open bottle cages. RRP £38 each.

2 x Salsa anything front fork storage cages. RRP £19 each.

I have now located the original WTB Pure V saddle that came with the bike from new. It is unused and will be placed back on the bike on sale.
